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!
