Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Request: brush swatches of the Tarte Let it Rain-bow Eye Set. I'm especially interested in seeing how the turquoise and the yellow perform.

As preemptive thanks, here's some brush swatches of the Persona Cosmetics Color Theory Eye Palette in Pink.

(Swatches done with the $1 e.l.f. professional eyeshadow brush, because I like to demonstrate how a palette performs with the worst tools, rather than the best.)

 

Additionally, here's a quick eye look I threw together to demonstrate how it performs on the eyelid.

RE: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Not a request, but for anyone debating them, I have swatches of the lightgasm and lovegasm palettes from CT. They’re no longer on the website but they still have them in store. Love both on my NC20 skin, but the lovegasm (closer to elbow) I have to use with a light hand.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I am looking for swatches of the BareMinerals Bareskin serum concealer. I am specifically interested in the shades fair and light. Anyone have both? What are the undertones? 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@itsfi I think you asked about my thoughts on lilah b. Divine Duo™ Lip & Cheek Blush b. true? Swatches attached. I just lightly swipe the surface

 

It's great for a natural and subtle look and I like how it can be used for cheeks, eyes, and lips. It’s a cream to powder formula that stays when dries down and is easy to pat, blend, and build up with fingers on bare skin and foundation. They melt into my skin and last for the whole day. Subtle on lips and eyes too. For lips, I use it over my lip balm because it’s kind of drying (my lips are dry). The packaging is nice—metal and weighted – and about 2 inches in length, so convenient for travel.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

New Nars lips from Connor Tingley collection in Arnera and Madura. I love Arnera so much. It’s described as coraly but it’s way more pinky on me which I love. Seems to melt into my lips vs some of the other colors that seem to lay more onto my lips. Wish was in permanent line and have to see if any good dupes before a backup needed! Any ideas welcome! Madura is quite purple. Not my fav but is ok. 54654452-C6E4-4B25-8BDF-142BD74E2796.jpeg

THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

anyone have mufe HD in y225 and have a comparative to lancome teinte idole and/or YSL touche eclar + swatch comparatives and shade numbers? I kept two numbers from lancome samples. the ysl was a bit to dark and I am wondering if the sephora matxh is the right one. Thanks

THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Any and all Bite Beauty lip colors are appreciated, on a fair, neutral-to-cool skin tone if possible. I love the quality of their products, but they're just expensive enough that I don't want to buy just to buy, you know? Thanks!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

If anyone has purchased either the new Clinique On the Glow palette OR the Bobbi Brown Molten Drama palette, please post swatches!

THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Here was the swatches of the Becca Khloe Kardashian palette and Malika. I have to say I was happily surprised. Khloe on top Malika bottom. Both swatched great.

Cross-Posting from the Too faced thread:

 

I’ve gotten a lot of requests to swatch the Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Palette, so here you go!

 

0B2A39FD-B9C8-47F2-9300-7D5E2F62BCED.png

 

This is my current favorite palette - I love the colors, formula, pigmentation and yummy gingerbread scent. 💗💗💗

 

For what it’s worth, I do not use primers for my swatches and I swatch with my fingertip, not a brush.  These swatches all have one layer of product except Gumdrop and Figgy Pudding (which have two) and I do not Photoshop or apply filters to my swatches.

JK!  My swatches definitely aren’t perfect.  

As a dear friend recently told me, they are perfectly imperfect.💗  I post them in hopes that they help someone make a purchase decision or rethink a product they may have written off previously.

I swatched most of my Becca highlighters a few weeks ago (I totally forgot Dreamsicle and I've acquired a few more since) and wanted to share with y'all!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Does anyone have the Laura Geller LE Rose Glow highlighter they could possibly swatch for me? I found one less than stellar example combing through Google and am wondering if it is similar to any of the shades I already own. Namely the hourglass strobing one from last year or the Laura Mercier quad. I may buy it anyway but a swatch would be super helpful if anyone has it available.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Anyone else have swatches of the Shiseido Modernmatte Powder Lipsticks? I’d love to see some warm reds . I got the Exotic Red as a GWP , but it looks purple on me . Can anyone compare the wear time and transfer between the Visionairy Gel and the Modernmatte? Can’t decide which one I want . Thanks ! I live nowhere near a place to try these on , so I’m blindly shopping online. Thanks to anyone who replies 😊
