I’m not sure if you guys know but I update my makeup swatch gallery with at least 12 to 15 dark skin makeup swatches a week . . . minimum – so my archive is slowly growing as time goes by.
I would love to do more but I doubt my debit card would allow me LOL anyway here are this week’s products in a tidy, little, online package.
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Benares
The NARS Benares Sheer Glow Foundation has been my day-to-day foundation for a number of years as I like the sheer to medium coverage that it provides as well as the fact that it hides the minor imperfections on my skin. Read Product Review
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Plath
On my lips, I think you can definitely see the warm, red tones for the Kat Von D Plath lipstick coming through but I’m a bit reluctant to relegate this lipstick into the burgundy family as I feel like the brown tones are quite prominent. Read The Full Review
Marc Jacobs Enamored Lip Lacquer in Pink Steam (322)
The Marc Jacobs Pink Steam Enamored Lip Lacquer is a frosted, lavender lip gloss that leaves lips feeling a slightly sticky, hydrated feel with a medium coverage. Read Full Review
Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Solstice
I think that it is quite difficult to pinpoint exactly what colour the Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Solstice is as it seems to change colours every time the light hits it. I think that Solstice flexes between pink, red, and orange with a green sparkle. Read Product Review.
L’Oreal Paris Infallible Matte Lip Paint in Apocalypse Red (205)
When I applied the L’Oreal Paris Apocalypse Red Lip Paint, I was so surprised by its formula. This lipstick has a mousse-like formula that feels like a pigmented cushion on the lips that dries down into an opaque, smooth finish that does not tug or dry the lips. Read Full Review.
MAC DazzleShadow in Let’s Roll
Described as a ‘red bronze with sparkles’, the MAC Let’s Roll DazzleShadow is a powder eyeshadow that should only really be used wet as it stops the shadow from creasing when worn on the eye. Read Product Review
Gosh Nougat Fudge Liquid Matte Lips Lipstick
The Gosh Nougat Fudge Liquid Matte Lips Lipstick is a candy pink-coral liquid lipstick that has been formulated to deliver a long-lasting result with pure colour payoff. Read Product Review
Fenty Beauty Sinamon Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick
The Fenty Beauty Sinamon Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick is described as a cinnamon bronze . . . which means nothing to me, so let’s say that it is a pink toned, bronze highlighter with a matte, shimmer finish. Read Product Review
MAC Pigment in Rose
The MAC Pigment in Rose is a concentrated ‘rose pink’ loose colour powder eyeshadow with a copper-brown sparkle undertone that is just too pretty for words and heavily pigmented. If you are looking for a sheer pink eyeshadow then this loose pigment is not the one for you as it gives pure pigmented goals regardless of whether you use it wet or dry. Read Product Review
Makeup Forever Star Lit Powder in 19 Ultramarine
Wow! If you are on the hunt for a royal blue eyeshadow then look no further than the Makeup Forever Star Lit Powder in 19 Ultramarine as this eyeshadow is so pigmented, extremely easy to apply (once out of it’s annoying packaging anyway) and long-lasting. Read Product Review
Barry M Cocoa Flawless Matte Foundation
The Barry Flawless Matte Foundation in Cocoa is the darkest shade in this Barry M foundation range at the moment. It’s a little too dark and red for me to wear but I wanted to chart the difference between all the dark skin shade on my face rather than on my arm. Read Full Review
Isadora Ultra Matt Liquid Lipstick in Red Romance
Just like the name suggests, the IsaDora Ultra Matt Liquid Lipstick in Red Romance is an extremely matte, crimson red, transfer-proof lipstick with a cream-like texture that glides onto the lips very easily. Read Product Review
Cake Cosmetics Daily Wear Foundation in N95
Although the Cake Cosmetics Daily Wear Foundation in N95 is too dark for me, I would have to put this foundation in the luminous or radiant foundation family. Read Product Review
