Swatch requests anyone?

I am going to the store this afternoon, and will be able to get some swatch pictures. I will post them to this thread as soon as I get home.


I am very pale with neutral undertones. Marc Jacobs 10 Ivory Light is my best match. (I'm actually planning on testing the feel/wear at the store today to make sure it is good on my face and not just my hand.) I know I don't match hardly anyone else with how light I am, but others with fair neutral skin should be able to at least get an idea of color and texture.


Does anyone have any requests for swatches they'd like to see?

Re: Swatch requests anyone?

@Aparrish - The second pic of the stains is them wiped off my hand with a tissue. All of them except 101 left a really noticeable stain. The lipsticks really surprised me though, cause regular lipsticks don't usually take that much effort to remove.

Re: Swatch requests anyone?

One other note is that aside from color, the YSL lipsticks totally blew me away in terms of staying power. The KVD lipsticks came off my arm with a little rubbing alcohol. The YSL ones took real effort.

Re: Swatch requests anyone?

Funny you mention that - I also switched some of the YSL glossy stains today and was impressed by the true "staining" power! Even after makeup remover, there were traces left behind! 

Re: Swatch requests anyone?


So I went to the store, and they did not have the Kat Von D set, and they were totally out of the Sephora Favorites lip set. However, the sales lady was nice enough to make me a card with the products from the favorites set they had in stock, and I swatched the Kat Von D lipsticks they had avail.


I also swatched Touche Éclat, all the Rebel Nudes stains, and most of the YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks. They were too pretty not to. ^_^

Re: Swatch requests anyone?

Yay thanks! Woah, that 1.5 is suuuuper yellow! Looks like it's either 2 or 2.5 for me. Hmmm, guess my fall Sephora coupon/promos are going toward some YSL this yr.

Re: Swatch requests anyone?

Yay! Thanks so much for doing this! I will definitely be buying that YSL Rouge Volupte #29 now Smiley Happy

Re: Swatch requests anyone?

Do you mind swatching YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick in "29 Opera Rose" please? 


That's so sweet of you to ask us if we want swatches! I've never thought of that. 

Re: Swatch requests anyone?

 I will be there in about 3-4 hours, so feel free to post until then. I will check the thread again when I get to the store.


So far, assuming the store has them...  I will swatch the new Kat Von D lipstick set, the Sephora Favorites lipstick set, and YSL Touche Éclat.


Re: Swatch requests anyone?

Yes please swatch the Kat Von D Lip set!! I want it but i know half the colors i may not use but i would like to see swatches!

Re: Swatch requests anyone?

I agree! I really want to see the swatches to reinforce my thoughts on it (: Thank youuu!

Re: Swatch requests anyone?

Ah, if it's not too late, then YSL touche eclat in 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3 and 3.5. I've been wanting to get one of them but I'm not sure how different they are. There's not many comparison swatches, especially including .5 numbers. Thanks!
