SweetPea & Fay swatches

Recommended Posts

Here are the swatches I promised, took the pic outside in the shade: 400 I used a lip brush to draw the letters ("M" for merry widow & "P" for penelope) and brushed the excess underneath each color to show how it looks lightly applied. #NoFilter #NoPrimer

Ooh, Penelope looks so much prettier in person! I can't wait!! As soon as mine come in, the swatching party will begin! She shipped them 1-3 day first class, so I'm hoping I'll have them by tomorrow or Friday at the latest.

Ok, so here are swatches of the 4 colors that I have. I did them a little thick so you can see how creamy they are. These are in bathroom light and it's pretty close to real life.400 From left to right: Heliotrope, Cannoli, Big Parade, Mermaid's Kiss

I'm a little late posting, but guess what I got?!? :D

700

From Left to Right

Top: Yeti, The Gilded Lady, Ominous

Middle: Tea Cups, Beluga, Ukulele, Jail Bird, Paper Cut, Willa

Bottom: Musidora, Penelope, Foxfire, Merry Widow

 

YAY!!! I'm so beyond excited!! I now have every color they offer, with the exception of Crazy Cab, Scuba Gear, and Nordic, plus 3 from the Etui collection, which as of last month is no longer available (although you might be able to get them from Amazon or another of their third party retailer). They also included a hand written note, along with all 8 of the original colors I had requested, plus the 5 that I requested for my extras. I posted the note and more about all that in the other thread, but their definitely redeemed in my book. And nooooowwww, SWATCHES!! Ohhhhh yay!! I wish I had had a better lighting situation, but most of them are pretty true to life.

Willa looks a little more wine colored in this pic, but IRL it's a little lighter and more mauvey. 

 

700

From left to right: Yeti, The Gilded Lady, Ominous, Musidora, Penelope, Foxfire, Merry Widow

 

All these are pretty true to life except Foxfire, which is a really pretty vibrant orange, but the pic doesn't really do its vibrancy much justice. 

 

Sorry for my terrible swatching! I was in a bit of a hurry. :)

Yeti and Omnious look really good. I know it's not a traditional color but for an editorial look those would be perfect.

Ominous is really nice! It's really super creamy and it has just enough shine that it gives my lips a cool patent-leathery kind of look. Definitely not for everyday, but it's more wearable than it seems. Yeti is more matte, but still super creamy. The Gilded Lady is also unexpectedly nice! If I had only had it just a week earlier, it so would have gotten worn to see Rocky Horror! SP&F are right about their crazy shades being "Strangely Wearable," they totally are! I think my favorite right now is Musidora, but I haven't gotten into the lighter, brighter shades quite as much since it's fall/winter/whatever the heck crazy weather season is happening right now.

I am wearing Mermaid's Kiss in my profile pic, and the photo was taken after having it on for about an hour and a half to 2 hours. A true testament to the staying power of these puppies!

    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal.
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
    • Essential hydration The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. To maintain a good level of hydration, it is therefore important to opt for daily moisturizers that balance the water level at the heart of the skin. You can also regularly use a moisturizing mask, it ensure both your face health and beauty by removing the excess using a mist of thermal water.
