The Swatch Files

The Swatch Files are something new that I'm doing on this blog.  The name is pretty self explanatory, they will be posts which consist of only swatches. 

The reasons behind doing pure swatch threads are documented below, I'm only stating these in this post and they won't be taking up any space in the actual Swatch Files.
  1. Swatches provided by the companies selling the items are sometimes not accurate.
  2. With regards to lipgloss, lipstick, eyeshadow, the colour you see in the tube is not the same colour which you apply, it comes out a lot sheerer.
  3. Swatches differ on different colour skins and I personally find it hard to find swatches on darker skin tones.
  4. Makeup is not cheap and hopefully these swatches will help you save some money, or conversly part with money you weren't going to spend in the first place.
The first post will be coming up right after this one..


  1. amazing idea... you are definately right.. there are hardly any swatches on darker complexions.. thanks for this!

  2. Emma: Welcome to the blog :)I thought I might as well make use of the makeup I have at home whilst I improve my application skills so atleast people can see what the products actually look like.

    Kim: Welcome to my blog :) Not a problem, I use blogs so much for swatches so thought it's about time to help other people out :)
