Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@makeitup305 love this!  Thanks for the comparisons 🙂

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

You're welcome! @CookieGirl1 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Oh how nice to see them all on you thanks @makeitup305 ! (I think we’re pretty similar color wise too.) Which is your fav? I thought the CT felt so smooth but didn’t love it personally on me , and looks good on you. Saie and Nars all look flattering too! Love love your shirt! 🥰

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@Sunnysmom I really like the tarte for more of that "sunburn" look. It's not too red, though. If I had to pick I'd probably go for either the Nars #2 or the Saie. I liked the tone of the Nars more than CT in person, even though it was darker. It's hard to tell with a hand swatch how it would translate on my face, though. I haven't picked any up yet, even though I'm sorely tempted. I was hoping they had the ROSE INC Solar Infusion Moisturizing Cream Bronzer out since I'm such a huge fan of their line but they didn't have testers for it yet. That one might be the one to tip me over. Other cream bronzers/contours I have or had: NUDESTIX Nudies Matte Cream Bronzer Bondi Bae , NUDESTIX Nudies Matte Cream Bronzer Sunkissed (although it's a blush on me), Hourglass Illume Sheer Color Trio , TOM FORD Shade and Illuminate Cream Face Palette , Westman Atelier Face Trace Cream Contour Stick Biscuit Westman Atelier Face Trace Cream Contour Stick Truffle, The Kevin Aucoin sculpting cream, and the Salt New York Cream Bronzer and Contour. I also have the NIOD Opacity 12 fluid and the Bare Minerals Glow Bronzer in Faux Tan (liquid).

You can see why I'm not in a rush to get a new one haha. If you're interested in any of these let me know! 

How do you like the Chanel cream bronzer? It's always been on my radar but I've never bit the bullet

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Oh what an amazing collection of bronzers you have @makeitup305 ! So fun. Thanks so much for all this terrific info. The Saie and Rose interest me a lot if I’m doing another creme. The Chanel is smooth and forgiving and I’m not a pro at doing it at all. Kind of why I may prefer an easier light swoosh of a powder one but I don’t have enough of either to know for sure. I have the Chanel cream and Gucci, Guerlain and one TF powder I think. These tones are so tricky! was hoping to see the Rose as well. I love her blush and highlighter as I know you do too. The VBB still interests me too but I’m stymied on the shade. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Do you love a certain brush to use with yours?That little LE Chanel looks pretty fun. Very fluffy from what I saw the other day! 😊

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@Sunnysmom my brush choice depends on the bronzer. Some of them I go for a brush similar to the Rephr #22 (which is on my to-buy list) for when I want just a wash of color. If they're a little more cool toned or neutral I tend to go for a brush like the Wayne Goss #11 or #12 to make it more sculpting. I like using a smallish duo fiber brush for creams. I'm interested in the Chanel cream medium shade that just released, I think the tone might suit me a little more than the original, even though they seem to be quite similar in depth. I've got on old TF in Gold Lust that you just reminded me I need to break out.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

This is great info thank you @makeitup305 ! I am always a bit challenged on the correct brush to use it seems! I will look up the Rephr #22 as well. I’m also curious about the differences between the Chanel new and old cream. If I see I’ll let you know and vicey versy if you’ve seen it. I have that same TF, it’s so pretty. Probably adding Terra from the Sephora promo sale too. Oops, been on my wish list a bit. It looks very wearable and I know @blackkitty2014 recommends it! 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

The new Chanel bronzer in Light and Westman Atelier powder in Pink Bubble. Love them so far! Beautiful
natural sheen to the bronzer and the powder lends the prettiest finish. (Heavy swatch of powder).

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@Sunnysmom that Chanel powder looks gorgeous. 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

It has a really pretty silky feel with the slightest teeniest glow  @makeitup305 . 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

These both look beautiful, @Sunnysmom! I thought about the Chanel bronzer but I think I want a cream one. 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I debated also @curlychiquita . This one turned out to be very forgiving thankfully. What cream one are you thinking about? The only one I have is also Chanel. I wondered about Saie’s. 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@Sunnysmom  I'm thinking the Chanel cream bronzer, but I actually don't own a cream bronzer at all yet!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I think you would love it @curlychiquita and bet it would be really flattering on you! 💞

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Their both so pretty, @Sunnysmom ! 💖💖💖  I really like the bronzer.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

They are @Titian06 . I’m not too great with bronzer but I think it will be fun for summer! 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Swatches if anyone is curious about the latest shade of Lisa Eldridge in Pink Moon and CT Quick and Easy Sets. This is CT Pretty Easy set and Sunkissed lip and cheek refill. Cheek is coral but leans pink when on and Sunkissed is a more nude medium pink tho may not totally look it on here. The case is cute and colors are very wearable. I find no sparkle or shimmer really in cheek only a soft glow. They melt into the skin nicely too. Smooth not sticky. Highlighter is so pretty.  I find I’m a little clumsy putting them back in though that’s just operator error lol. I do wish they came with a little better separate lid if not wanting to keep them in case but I wanted to see the products so tried them. The lid is fine, fits well and you can see it nicely too. 
Lisa E is same glowy formula as previous shades. Cool very subtle pink. Beauteous! 
@TraceyEB did you also try any? @blackkitty2014 @Ispend2much6
