Sephora Collection Artist Color Box Makeup Palette

We swatched the Sephora Collection Artist Color Box Makeup Palette to see how the colors looked on different skin tones. What do you think?

How about one for actually dark people? 

Re: Sephora Collection Artist Color Box Makeup Palette

The "medium" skin tone looks pretty light to me...as does the tone you chose for "dark".

Re: Sephora Collection Artist Color Box Makeup Palette

I'm with you on that one.  I have brown skin but I'm mixed and it's still on the light side.  That "dark" shade looks like mine, which would in most cosmetics nowadays definitely be a "medium/tan" type of shade.

Re: Sephora Collection Artist Color Box Makeup Palette

Hi JBrick - I'm the "dark" of the dark arm, and all "medium/tan" shades are too light for me. I always fall into the "dark" tone when shopping for complexion products.

Re: Sephora Collection Artist Color Box Makeup Palette

You all need a new, more inclusive, definition of "dark." Give me a break.

Re: Sephora Collection Artist Color Box Makeup Palette

Hi nerdgirlms - I'm the "dark" of the dark arm. I wear MUFE 175, Laura Mercier Tinted moisturizer in Walnut, NARS concealer in Amande, and if I remember correctly, MAC NC40 (NC45 in the summer, although I don't really wear MAC anymore for obvious reasons Smiley Happy)

 

So on the scale of "fair" to "dark", I'm pretty far toward the "dark" end for most traditional makeup lines.

 

Hope that helps!

Re: Sephora Collection Artist Color Box Makeup Palette

It actually doesn't help, sadly. While you might be "traditional" dark, your skintone is nowhere near the shade of say... most african americans, which I think is what the OP is getting at. I'm a Warm Deep in Bare Minerals shading and Cognac in the Makeup Forever HD line.

 

That's the "dark" shade we'd like to see. Hope that helps, thanks!

Re: Sephora Collection Artist Color Box Makeup Palette

I love that you show this on different skin tones! It's very helpful. Now if you could do that for all of your makeup.....

Re: Sephora Collection Artist Color Box Makeup Palette

I commented on this once before, but I noticed it must have been removed. Your definition of "Dark" is waaaaay off. If you are trying to appeal to the rich, dark chocolate skin of African American women, you have missed the mark.
