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 !

Would anyone be able to provide a swatch of the Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able foundation in Ivory Medium 14? I have Ivory 12 and it is waaaaay too yellow. I also had tried Ivory Light 10 in the past and it was far too light. I've been using EL DW in 1N2 Ecru and have been very happy with the colour. According to Sephora's Colour IQ, this has the same number as the Re(marc)able foundation in Ivory Medium 14. Somehow I have my doubts, but I'm curious to know if anyone can confirm it. I really like the Re(marc)able foundation, but the shade selection is driving me crazy. -__-

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Would anyone be willing to swatch coverfx custom cover drops in N10 alongside either mac nw10 or mac nc10?

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I saw on one of the threads that somebody wanted Wet n Wild highlighter swatches. Sorry for the lighting.

The blended out swatches were done with my finger not a brush. The pink one could be high end, it's that smooth. The purple one is a little less smooth and a little more shimmery but still really nice. Both of these are pretty light-skin friendly. 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Anyone who owns Jouer Brique lip cream, How close it is IRL to this lip swatch. 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

 

I'm pretty sure I've already seen it mentioned on BT that Charlotte Tilbury's Electric Poppy and Lost Cherry are dupes for each other, but I just got a sample of EP and wanted to see for myself.

 

Left: Lost Cherry

Right: Electric Poppy

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Not requested, but I saw a display for Stellar cosmetics at a new Sephora and I had to swatch the Metallic Moon Lipsticks and the Cosmic blushes. I'm not sure if this line will be in all stores, so I figured this could be helpful. 

From the top these are Disco Moon 1, Disco Moon 05, Disco Moon 02, Disco Moon 03, Disco Moon 04

I did two angles to show the undertone and the reflective colors. 1&5 seem to be pure metallic. 2, 3, and 4 are metallic with some glitter bits. It seemed like 3 could be prone to some glitter fall out, but it could have been a dried out tester. They all look very pretty in person, and felt creamy om my hand. 2 & 5 are very pretty in person!

From wrist down these are Cosmic Blush in Eclipse, Beam, and Flare. Eclipse and flare are very very luminous. All three feel very buttery and apply smoothly. This color is built up a little, they could be worn quite sheer. Beam is luminous too, but it does not have the shimmer that the others do. 

 

Big it thanks to my dog, the ever patient background fur model/hand rest!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Could anyone compare NARS Impassioned and Benefit Dandelion blushes? I already have Impassioned and Temptalia lists Dandelion as a dupe.. but I can't really tell.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Here's all three of tatcha's lipstick next to each other; cherry blossom is very nude/peachy on my lips; it's nice, but not a must have. Plum blossom is my favorite. This is really the only lipstick I regret not having a back up of. I hope they bring it back.

If anyone got the Birchbox Vogue box, could you please swatch the nars pencil and the RMS lip and cheek?

 

They're still being sold separately and I'm really tempted by the pencil

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I have swatched KA the contour book-volume II

Left column (from T to B) Starlight, Brighten,Candlelight(powder) and Sculpting powder

Right column (from R to B) Candlelight cream(it's not showing up for some reason), Sculpting cream, Ruddy Earth and Cool tan.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I like the look of all products in this palette. I am actually passing Becca Champagne glow after buying this. I wanted that one mostly for pearl powder but I can see Brighten can work in place of pearl. I am too lazy to even swatch mine but I am planning to Practice cream contour some time during next week.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I swatched the Becca x Jaclyn Hill palette! 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Very warm toned! I'll bet it's lovely on you!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Laura Mercier Matte to Metal Caviar sticks please? I think I've seen it here on BT before, but it's probably buried in the Ho Ho Holidays thread Smiley Very Happy

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Looking for YSL Rouge Pur Couture in 4 Rouge Vermillion swatched side-by-side with Givenchy Framboise Velours. 

 

I just tried and purchased the YSL Rouge Vermillion in store, got home into better lighting and thought, "gee, this looks highly similar to the Framboise Velours I already have."  If I need to do an exchange, I would feel better about doing it on an unopened product. 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I tried in store. YSL Rouge Vermillion is on the left, and Givenchy Framboise Velours is on the right. They are quite different, and I really like Rouge Vermillion. I will keep it, and cherish them both. 

 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Has anyone done a lip swatch of BITE 'Holly' from the Mix N Mingle duo?

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Gwen, I think I have one.  But a poor swatch ...let me see.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Malday, I can't remember where you asked for it, but here are some torte comparisons;

 

the closest match I have is MJ kisskissbangbang (top of photo, near thumb/forefinger)

 

left side of the long torte swipe is NARS Anna, Anita, ct amazing grace, bite rosewood (biggest swatch at bottom near wrist).

 

Right side of long torte swatch is ct walk of shame, bite rose and Shiraz 

 

also, it didn't swatch the same, but TF Casablanca (Cary) looks pretty similar when worn.

 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Thank you Mocha! I think I have a mini Kiss Kiss Bang Bang somewhere.
