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 !

@flyte I may have a photo of me wearing it around somewhere, but for now here's a swatch

 

its a lovely muted shade.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@Mochapj thank you so much! i'm actually currently loving provacative red too and it seems this + walkyrie might be my new loves!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Ohh finally a request I can help with (I'm about a NC25 right now). Thanks for reminding me how much I love this lipstick. Definitely one of the better formulated Nars Matte Lip Pencils.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@Tofu Thank you so much! It looks great on you! I like how it's brown/red/slight pink at the same time! seems great for all seasons (except maybe summer daytime!)

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I'm gonna try and enable again.  The Stila Glitterati top coat for lips IS AMAZING! Holy wow.  If you have matte lipsticks which you sometimes wish had some oomph to them, BUY THIS.

 

I impulsively bought the Transcend shade yesterday while I was at Ulta getting my haircut (I also tried their new glitter liquid eyeshadows and those were fantastic, but I didnt get any because ya know, trying to limit my makeup spending).

 

In the photos below, I am wearing NYX Lip Lingerie in Seduction both WITH the topcoat and without, so you can see the huge difference!  PS it is also on my top lip but since it's angled downwards, the camera didn't pick up the glitter on my top lip.

 

I also find the topcoat changes colors based on the base.  So it looked really silver over this color, but over pinks/reds it looks more like a pinky glitter.

 

The stuff also stays on and isn't sticky at all.  It lasted 5 hours with drinking water, and then faded on the inner lips once I had some oily foods.

 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I need this!!!!! It looks gorgeous

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@sabrinas Wow that looks incredible. Thank You for sharing. Maybe my solution for a few liquid lipsticks that once dry down on me look to ashen, so I never wear them. 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@sabrinas Thanks for sharing. It's so pretty!

 

Did it change the texture of the liquid lipstick, and make it less transfer-proof? Did you get a chance to try out the other shade Ignite? The shade description (transparent berry sparkle) makes me very curious.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@@Sabrinas you are such a wiz-ord! Cool look. I like to add a dot of a thicker gloss like ABH or a thicker lipglide or Chantecaille's new one if mine get too dry and find it doesn't change color or clump up texture etc too. U have any other favs? I love the NYX brighter ones too. Such a nice value. 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Some unsolicited swatches.

 

NUDESTIX Nudies all over face Colorado Matte. The formula is not powdery like Bite multisticks but a lot more creamy and glides on smoothly. 

 

L-R : Bare Back, In The Nude, Naughty N' Spice, Bondi Bae

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Thank you @fatimamummy!  I want to pick up a few of these to try out since I love the Bite Multisticks so much and these swatches are very helpful! 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Thank you for these! I've been looking for a shade like In The Nude Smiley Happy

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Thanks for the swatches, @fatimamummy. I was eying this product but I couldn't find many reviews since it's a new product. I like the stuff I tried from Nudestix so will look into getting one of them when there's a sale!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I also tried these Nudies Nudestix at the store today. So glad they are quite different than the multisticks as those were brutally dry on me..This, I was able to wear comfortably on the lips..and it is quite pigmented for the eyes/cheeks. Not tacky and dries down a bit but I will say that like any such product this can be prone to creasing on the lids so maybe setting with a powder may be required. I loved thw shades In the nude and naughty n spice on me.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Does anyone have swatches of the new Becca Bali Sands bronzer?  It would be *amazing* if someone could swatch compare it to Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil or MJ Coconut Omega!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@Madeline7 I don't have Bali Sands but from swatches I've seen online it's lighter than both, but definitely closer to the Milk Chocolate. Here is temptalia's swatch of the coconut bronzer and Bali Sands.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I have swatches of the MJ Coconut bronzer and Bali Sands (and a few others...) @Madeline7 Smiley Happy 

There are taken indoors, by a window. To me, the MJ bronzer looks more brown than Bali Sands.

Top to bottom:

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow bronzer

Hourglass Nude Bronze Light bronzer

Tom Ford Terra bronzer

MJ Coconut O!Mega bronzer

Becca Bali Sands bronzer

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy  thank you!!!  this is awesome @Asche!

 

Right now the only bronzer I own is the MJ one.  I love the texture but I wanted to try something lighter...is the glitter in the Becca one noticeable when worn?  

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@Madeline7 I don't notice any glitter in Bali Sands at all! Even in the pan I barely see any glitter at all. It looks really soft and natural on my skin, definitely not shimmery/glittery. Smiley Happy

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

So, here's some swatches nobody asked for but I thought were nice anyway. Pardon my hairy arm....I'm Irish haha. Here is the ABH Self Made palette on my fair skin. The palette is crying out for a matte taupe (IMO). I would have left out Spirit Rock and put in a matte taupe, like Tease from Naked 2.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

LOL, Shannon, you're adorable. Smiley Happy

 

Can I just tell you too, when I heard about this ABH 'Self Made' palette everyone was buzzing about, I thought ABH was releasing a customizable palette that you could buy singles for Smiley Frustrated

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Haha they do have one! You can build a set of 4 or 8.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I thought that too

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Shannon, of course you wanted a taupe. You want a taupe in everything. Smiley Wink

 

(But I agree. Not even the gothiest goth needs another black shadow.)

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Hahaha that is a fair point. It's not even a very nice black, the glitters in it are weird. Here I am being grumbly about no matte taupes, when I just remembered that's what the Naked Basics 2 is for...

 

I also got the LORAC baby matte palette just to supplement this one. It doesn't have a taupe either!
