THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

alright, here it is. use this thread to request swatches. the guidelines are up to you and your needs: single swatches, comparison swatches, specific skin tone swatches

 

when comparisons are requested, feel free to provide whatever you have of that request--i want anyone to participate and contribute if they want to. have fun, hope this is helpful !

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Does anyone have a swatch of the Burberry single shadow in Pale Barley? I am looking for a new neutral slightly satiny/shimmery shadow and have been looking at this one for a while.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Getting it for you!

Natural/cloudy light

L-R:

Pale Barley dry

Pale Barley wet (it sheers the color out a bit and adds a glow)

Stila Kitten

Nars DI Dione

Burberry Midnight Brown

 

I know you only asked for pale barley, but I thought I'd add a few other champagne/neutral shimmery washes I have on hand for comparison. Also, not what you asked for, but in case anyone wants to see it, I like pairing midnight brown with pale barley.

Fwiw, pale barley is the most used eyeshadow in my collection. I have the new version and love it:)

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Thanks! Good comparison putting it next to Stila kitten as that's one of my favorite shadows, so it was good to see the differences.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

You're welcome! Glad it worked out:)

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I really thought it would be closer in color to Kitten. I was surprised at how dark Pale Barley is.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I did 2-3 swipes/layers of all except dione, so pale barley can be applied much lighter. I swatched it heavier because it was hard to distinguish from my skin as a light swatch. Hope that makes sense!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Ahh, ok. Thanks for clarifying!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I know this isn't high end or anything, but if anyone has swatches of the new elf cream blush palettes (especially Bold) or the new elf Satin Lipsticks would you mind sharing?  :3

 

Also can I get swatches of Nars Jane & Anita next to Audrey?

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I will do Jane, Anita, and Audrey for you tomorrow. PM me if I don't.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Lovely!  Thank you so so much!!

From top: Anita, Jane, Audrey. Two swipes each.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Here is me in Jane: (I think...)

ETA: WOW, look at that overdrawing on the top lip, and the really hard-edged pencil liner with the nude shadow... This was one of the first pics I ever posted on BT and BOY does it show lol. I don't do either of those things anymore.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I have one around here somewhere too....

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Wow, did not realize Jane was that brown.  Thank you so much!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

You're welcome! Jane is ridiculously gorgeous; it's a color I recommend all the time. Mocha (and probably others) have on-lip photos in the Audie thread (http://community.sephora.com/t5/Lips/Show-Me-Your-Audacious-Collection/m-p/1695820#M10941) or I can dig up a picture of me wearing it. Lemme know if you want that.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

 For @meganlisa, wait, I can't tag.

 Naked Coral-Paradiso-Forbidden pink. The one next to Naked Coral is Spanish pink. Spanish pink and Naked Coral is somewhat similar in undertone, but Naked Coral has more coral-red, and definitely  much brighter, not as nude. Not as pigmented as some others (e.g. First Time), but wears opaque on my lips and conceal redness on my lip and shows its pretty color well! FullSizeRender (4).jpg

 

Top to bottom, Velvet Violet, Flamingo, Flash of Pink, Michael (L&B).  Cool violet pink, with LOTS of glitters, and well, I'm not a big fan of glitters on lips (I love them one eyes), but the pink glitters seem very pretty. Even compared to Michael, it has much more pink glitters in it. May feel a little gritty, not enough to bother or make it apply unevenly/patchy. Maybe I should buy Pure Pink as well, if it's glitter-less.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

These shades are gorgeous.  So rich and pigmented.  Wow!  Thanks for posting.  I might be adding one or two...

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I can see Naked Coral totally being oh so pretty shade for spring and summer...although I don't mind wearing spring-y, summer-y shades in any season. 

Flash of Pink is pretty too, and I'm just debating whether Pure Pink will be different from it 0.0 I need to do guess works since I don't have any stores nearby (I'm guessing the nearest one to be 4+hrs away). 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

The pinks are both pretty...but TF also has a few new eye shadow palettes coming out early 2016...

Such a shame the nearest store is so far from you so you can't just go try it on.  

I'm considering naked coral.  Lovely!  I'm mostly in warm weather...so the spring/summer collections are the most practical for me.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I know!!! I think there's at least two that I'd buy, just guessing from the name (Honeymoon, Last Dance, and possibly Disco dust...). Hopefully I end up getting no more than two 😞
