The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

*new group located here: Deeper Shades

 

Have a deeper hue and want to know how a product might look on your skin tone?  This is the place for you!

 

Image result for shades of brown

 

Several ladies expressed interest in having a BIC group dedicated to WOC.  Such a group would serve as a central reference point for swatches, color matching and the like, which can often be difficult to find.  While I have no idea whether such a group will ever be created I figured it would be nice to at least have a thread.

 

It should go without saying, but  **Ladies (and gents) of all hues are more than welcome **

@sprockettaI think this a palette you have been eyeing.

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

Love it @IttyxBittyxMe !  Thanks for the swatches!!

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

@IttyxBittyxMe Nice swatches!  They look gorgeous on you. 

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

@IttyxBittyxMe @So gorgeous. Thanks for the swatches and looks 

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

Thank you! ❤️ Melt is one of my favorite brands so I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

@IttyxBittyxMe @How would you rate everything because the eyeshadows and lipsticks didn’t get great reviews on Temptalia. 

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

Seriously?! I wonder why. The shadows from both palettes can be a little staining but over all highly pigmented and easy to blend. The liquid lips do stain the lips something serious but leave behind the most beautiful color afterwards. I was super tired but here's a look i did with the more red based palette.

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

@IttyxBittyxMe @It looks really good on you. She said the Matte lipsticks were too drying and the palettes had colors that overlapped. People were complaining that they could have fit everything in one palette. She said that there was inconsistencies with the palettes regarding the formula. She also said Lost souls was hard to work with. 

Per the brand, Recently Deceased, Lost Souls, Little Accident, and Bio Exorcist are Pressed Pigments and “are not approved by the FDA and Melt Cosmetics for use on the eyes.”

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

Ahhhh, the matte lips are drying but that's honestly Melt's formulas. They're called 'ultra matte lips' and the aren't kidding, you have to exfoliate and properly moisturize before hand or your lips are in for a doozy. 

 

I don't really feel like there were palette colors that overlapped, at least between these two palettes. I don't have all of the Melt Palettes but the ones I do have the colors are still pretty unique (minus the black of course but the emerald green in Lost Souls is EVERYTHING). In terms of difficult to work with, I found it to be really easy to work with. I did a look the day after I did a look with The Waiting Room, didn't take a picture though, and found it to be very pigmented and easy to blend.  As far as fitting everything into one palette...I mean yeah they could have, but the same thing could have been said with last years release of the Amor Eterno. I think it's nice for the people who prefer one set of colors over the other but that's a to each their own thing and I get that.

@IttyxBittyxMe Thanks for your reviews on it.

 Here is the new Pat McGRATH highlighter. It’s frosty but I’m going to use it on eyes or lightly accent my face. 

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

@KNC24 I think you can make it work! In the demo on PMG's IG I saw her build it up slowly and sort of buff it in and it just looked like glass on the skin. Definitely post a picture if you try it!

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

@makeitup305 I’ll have to use a fluffy brush and have a light had or it’s gonna go left really quick. 

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

@KNC24 maybe it'll be better under blush? Tag me if you post a picture ! 🙂

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

@KNC24 Nice highlighter.  Ive never tried her highlighter's. 

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

@KNC24 , ooh she is frosty 😶!  It might work as a corner/inner highlight with shadow work, too.

 

Thanks for the swatch.

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

@danielledanielle @I’m going to have use a very fluffy brush to diffuse this really good. But she is frosty.  

The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

Yes. It's another Coloured Raine post. I can't really get excited about shadows like I used to. There are a couple that I keep looking at (mainly while stalking FieldsOfClover's IG). so there are a couple more palettes I may buy. That said, my last purchase was the new CR Juicy Boost palette. They sent me a PR package so I sent my two most loyal followers the books. I'm playing in this palette and I'm pretty happy with the layout, smoothness, pigmentation and blendability. I like that the colors come together well. I do think that is easier now that I have a collection because. I don't know that I would travel with just this palette by itself.

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

You look flawless! @HazelEyedQueen
