Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Hello everyone! My name is char! I’m so glad I found this thread! I would love some advice/tips/tricks or opinions on foundation please! And i also have some questions. First of all, I live in humid Hawaii since 2019,  I’m turning 39 next week, I have oily skin, I wear lash extensions because I don’t like mascara and putting them on. my foundation for a long time has been Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation 4W1 Honey Bronze  I am starting to think it could be the wrong color. My veins on wrist to some people are blue/purple. I just thought it was green blue,( I was lighter skinned in Vegas) I want to try something else, that’s more mattifying, preferably liquid since I think that’s best for oilyskin ?!?  And I don’t know what’s close to that shade, I also want try another shade, lighter.  Can someone recommend some choices or brands? Anyone with similar skin types or problems? What worked? What’s new in my age? Thank you for taking the time to read and share your beauty experiences!

 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Hey I actually am a beauty advisor at Sephora and a foundations I would recommend is the IT cosmetics oil free foundation and I would also try on of urban decays setting spray! 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Did anybody get the new Dior highlighters? They are pretty amazing. This is Pink Glow. It’s. Just. Gorgeous. Pure perfect glow, sheen, no glittery stuff. Smooth and buttery too and no settling in any lines. Of course the minute after I opened it my nail gauged it. Lol. Great 😭. The case is kind of plasticy with Dior quilted lid. I definitely want to see other colors. @blackkitty2014 can’t wait to see yours, you will love them! I think it may have gone to the top of my favorites list.  It does have quite a heavy scent tho it’s a pretty one. I hope these land at Sephora and Nordstrom etc. They are on NM now.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@Sunnysmom Very pretty!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Can’t wait to see mine @Sunnysmom . 🌹

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I bet the Coral is gorgeous @blackkitty2014 ! 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Wow, @Sunnysmom, everything about it--from the presentation to the swatch--looks gorgeous.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

It’s so great @CookieGirl1 ! 🤩 I only have an older one and this one is much better imo. 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@Sunnysmom I have an older version as well and still love it but you're right--this looks even prettier. 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Well I guess mine is the Nude shade @CookieGirl1 so it’s probably not a real comparison. I’m sure others have them to do maybe @blackkitty2014 when hers arrives. From what I see the Nude is just more in your face and more of that overlay look if I’m using the right term. Prob not lol. 
The new one is much more subtle but buttery glow. 
Top is Pink Glow with older Nude under

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@Sunnysmom they BOTH are pretty 😉

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

They are @CookieGirl1 , and both have a time and place to use em. 😊

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I can’t put my finger on it @CookieGirl1 , but I’m going to compare the 2 and I’ll show you when I do. Watch them be exactly the same. 🤦🏻‍♀️lol. 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

New lips incoming 😊. Finally received my Urban Decay new Vice lips and remaining Bite. I do think the Bite would be great as a second string line of lippies maybe with a more substantive group first like Amuse Bouche. I wish I liked them more I really do. They are ok and I barely taste or smell vanilla but they just don’t have enough ooomph to me as a true lipstick or one that I need. Rats. Nice for a light summer look though I guess. This is Mulberry and Maple (which is cooler than previous Maple that I have.) ( Other swatches on Bite thread ). 

UD feels terrific in both creme and matte. Color holds with no feathering and good stain remaining like original line. I’m impressed. One silly thing is operator error. The cap kind of bugs me getting it on correctly at first time or in a hurry! Lol Darn angle of it! 🤦🏻‍♀️😂 @Guessgal did you get yours? @sprocketta this one’s for you with all the reds! 🤗🥰

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@Sunnysmom Very nice Bite Beauty shades. 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

They are @tjffc ! Will you try em?! 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@Sunnysmom are the Bite lippies really matte? I just can't do matte lippies anymore - my lips threw in the towel 😏.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I know, me either @niki172 . They’re sort of a hybrid very soft semi matte/ balm feel if that makes sense. Lol Do you have any of the MAC Powder Kiss lippies? They remind me most of those I think . They don’t go on too intensely or dry but oddly they end up a little drier on me.  I’ve been layering them with a balm under and over and that helped. They feel comfy ish and not a true matte no. The colors are nice! 

 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@Sunnysmom I understand the MAC analogy so that helps thank you! I may pick up one to see if it works.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Yup @niki172 it just feels like a little bit dryer version of those. Very similar 😊
