Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Unsolicited swatches of the new Stila Shimmer liquid lipsticks:

 

Left to right, top the bottom row. My non-flash photos do no show the colour difference well. 

 

Miele, Lume, Patina, Beso

Nudo, Illuminaire. C1D051DE-425F-4A13-8C0A-2D588F0ED660.jpeg

 

 

I like the formula - very liquid and smooth. But the Shimmer is soooo subtle on the 3 nude/tan shades Miele, Nudo and Illuminaire. I think my favourites are Lume and Beso but I doubt I will get either because they are not spectacular metallics. 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

So beautiful @LCResz!💞 Thanks so much for sharing!

RE: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I️ really like these colors that you have tested! I️t looks like I have the around the same color skin as you, so I️ just wanted to reach out to you and say thank you for doing the swatches because many times a color looks good online but then I️ buy it and it either turns out to light or too dark! This really helped me! Maybe I️ will be able to buy this this year!❤️

IMG_3119.jpgPosting swatch comparisons of the two L'Oréal x Balmain (LxB) lipsticks that I have:

L-R: NARS Audacious Linda, LxB Fever, Linda (again, because I'm an idiot), LxB Domination, NARS Cruella lip pencil and NARS Audacious Jane on the bottom

 

Fever is nothing like what I have in my collection, I thought it would be close to Linda or Jane but Linda is much more brown and Jane is more pinky. I think Jane may be a close match for LxB Confession as well. @Mochapj I always think of you when I see orange lipsticks, I wonder if you'd like this one?

 

Domination is more blue toned than Cruella and brighter. It still is a fairly neutral red, IMO.

 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Oh thanks @k617 ! That is a very interesting shade.

 

i’m also curious about the texture as I’d read the Balmain collab lipsticks were very dry.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I also have a lip swatch:

 

Now that you and @ClassicallyFab have mentioned it, I would say they're definitely NOT moisturizing lipsticks but I wouldn't necessarily call them dry either. They are very smooth during application (these 2 colours anyway, some of the darker colours look really patchy) and do eventually dry down to a matte finish while not being transfer proof. I think the dryness is no more than some of the better, less drying liquid lipsticks out there.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Looks really pretty on @k617 - kinda like a matte version of UD epigram 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Yes, @Mochapj! I'll have to swatch next to Epigram tonight. I think Epigram is likely a tiny bit more brown and muted.

 

When I first put this one I thought it would end up a bright orange, but luckily, as the lipstick set it looks more like a reddish orange.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I'm sitting at my desk laughing aloud at "because I'm an idiot...". <3 Thanks for these swatches. How do you like the LxB lipsticks? I heard they were dry, so I haven't purchased them...

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Haha @ClassicallyFab! There was more to it, too. Linda was the first I swatched , then I placed all the other colours and...finally thought I reached for Jane but I actually picked up Linda again instead. I even went "oh wow, Jane looks SO similar to Linda! I thought it was more coral!"

 

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Hahahaha! It’s so much like things I do. Too cute! So funny. Wish I was there. We’d be laugh-crying.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Can someone post a swatch of Diorific Rouge Khol 751 Intense Garnet please? Thank!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Intense Garnet on top, Deep Ruby on bottomIntense Garnet on top, Deep Ruby on bottom

Here you go @fatimamummy. Garnet is quite bright on my coloring, very pretty cherry. I love them both.  

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Thank you @Sunnysmom These are very pretty colours indeed.
