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 !

Can anyone swatch the new BITE Amuse Bouche 'Spritzer' next to Kat Von D 'Coven', NARS 'Dominique' and/or BITE 'Mauvember'? All of the above would be wonderful if someone has them. I want to get a bearing on the exact shade. Thanks in advance!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Looking for swatches of the new Tarte double duty eyeshadow palettes at Ulta if anyone checked them out today 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

In case anyone is looking...

 

Left column (top to bottom)

MAC Candy Yum Yum

MAC Candy Yum Yum + EL Edit Transformer Yellow

Bite Mulberry

Bite Mulberry + EL Edit Transformer Black

 

Right column (top to bottom)

EL Edit The Storm (2 to 3 passes) I think it's very pretty!

EL Edit Transformer Yellow (3 passes)

EL Edit Transformer Black (3 passes)

 

The transformer shades aren't as sheer as I original thought... much more pigmented even if you only pass one time. I think depending on the shade of lipstick you choose the black one will be harder to mix. If you love bold flashy type lips like neon corals the yellow is a must have!

 

Pics mix of natural light (overcast and artificial light)

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Has anyone gotten any items from Tarte's Double Duty collection? Seems like it's only available at ULTA and the Tarte site. So as a Canadian I can only order online...I would love to see any swatches for the 'eye architect liner and shadow' pencils or the eye/cheek palette Smiley Happy

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Answering my own question on dupes for Nars Kari (horizontal swatch). The third shade in the Covergirl roses palette (vertical) is very close. This was my first experience with drugstore shadows, and the quality is a little better than I was expecting!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Looking for swatches of the Kevyn Aucoin matte lipsticks, specifically Invincible, Resilient, and Persistence. Thank you!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Can anyone swatch KVD Hellbent, Hexagram, Nosferatu, and Thin Lizzy? Pretty please :-D

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Can anyone swatch or share looks of the Lancome Audacity palette with me? Please and thank you.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Does anyone have the Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder in Light that just launched? I can't find swatches of it anywhere!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Can anyone swatch KVD Nosferatu next to ABH Sarafine for me?

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

My Sephora just put out the Tarte rainforest of the sea display so I did some swatching

Tarte quenched lip splash lipstick in cabana boy, beach bum, skinny dip. The two darker colors are wet suit and bonfire. Sorry the light is so bad. The store doesn't have very good indoor lighting.

Swatches of the Tarte rainforest of the sea palette. The texture of these shadows are different from any other Tarte shadows I've ever tried. 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Would anyone be able to swatch Butter London's Dearie Me! nail polish? It's one of the Patent Shine 10x Nail Lacquers. 

 

Thanks!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Could anyone swatch Bite Sake next to Nars Rosecliff, and compare their formulas? Our SiJCP doesn't have either Smiley Sad

 

I keep telling myself to only get one because they look so similar....but maybe they're not?

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

General request: Favorite pinkish nude lipsticks, preferably ones sold at Ulta. I'm trying to make some choices before my birthday shopping spree next month, and I'd like to see some side-by-side swatches of some from different brands, and I figured BT would have a nice variety.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I know some folks are unhappy with how small these are, but Tarte just posted a video on their Instagram swatching all the new Rainforest of the Sea lipsticks.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Sticking these here since I took photos for another thread. Orange-red lipsticks.

From top, two swipes of each:

Nars Annabella

Nars Heat Wave

Sephora Orange Rocks No. 16

Dior Dolce Vita No. 14

Ardency Inn Kick

NYX Indie Flick

Bobbi Brown Orange

Bite custom lipstick I had made at the Bite Beauty Lab. It's very similar to Bite Zinfandel in color, but mine is much more matte and long lasting.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

This is a long-shot, but can anyone swatch MUG Unexpected next to Petal Pusher? It doesn't seem like a lot of people here use/enjoy MUG.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Does anyone have Buxom's Full On Lipstick in Tokyo?

MAKE Face Products (Part 3 of 4)

 

A few people have shown some interest in MAKE cosmetics—direct from makebeauty(dot)com—that I've worn in several of the "What Are You Wearing?" threads.  I've swatched samples of each product I own.  To keep the posts manageable, I've divided them into four parts:  (1) eyeshadow, (2) lipstick, (3) face, and (4) brow and lash.

 

Illuminators:

I've tried to capture them at their most visible to demonstrate their differences.  Needless to say, they're far subtler than they appear below.

Skincare:

 

Most of this line is designed to be unisex, and as such it's especially formulated to be worn either with or without makeup.  While I use the Moonlight Brightening Serum daily, I typically reserve the Moonlight Primer for makeup-free days.

The moonlight primer looks black when it comes out of the pump, but it blends beautifully into the skin IF ALL OTHER PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN ENTIRELY ABSORBED INTO THE SKIN.  If there's too much moisture sitting on top of the skin, it has a tendency to "pill".
