Before I buy literally any lip product I search for swatches online (bad things have happened when I didn’t!). Its vital to the purchase process; the color in the tube and on the sticker translates differently on the actual skin.
I love people who swatch out their collections because it helps me see how the colors I’m interested in look on the skin, and it also helps me find shades that I hadn’t previously seen.
Today’s “Sunday Swatch-O-Rama” consists of my lipstick collection (Note: Stains and glosses will be swatched at a later date, as well as eye products and cheek products)
For benchmark purposes my skin tone can be categorized as a NW15.
