Random Swatches

I’ve got a variety of random swatches for you from several different brands.


Peachykeen – very baby peach (sheertone shimmer)

I think Peachykeen is a really nice shade for my skintone, especially for summer. Love it!

Naturally Eccentric – creamy white nude (lustre)

Naturally Eccentric is kind of an odd shade, but I think it’s perfect for a dark smoky eye. I normally love the lustre finish, so I figured I’d pick this up. It’s also good for layering.

Naturally Eccentric layered on top of Buxom Nantucket.

This is Naturally Eccentric layered on top of Buxom Monte Carlo.

I like seeing Naturally Eccentric layered on top of other shades, and I think it works equally as well on top of Monte Carlo as it does on Nantucket.

This is Ulta Sunburst on the lid. It’s a really lovely shade.

This is Bobbi Brown Denim & Nars Wicked duo. They were gifts from a friend.

Wicked light side – pale almost-sage green
Wicked dark side – light chartreuse
Denim – medium blue with silver sparkle

I haven’t used these yet in a look but I plan on it soon. They’re interesting!

Ethereal – shimmery pink with pinky gold shift, multi-dimensional and gorgeous
Alluring – a gorgeous opaque blue-green shimmer shade with turquoise color shift on top and blue micro glitter/sparkles
Don’t Stop – a deep brown with bronze sparkle

These last three are from Brazen Cosmetics. Ethereal, Alluring, and Don’t Stop are lovely!

All three of these are gorgeous, but Alluring is just jaw dropping!

NARS Wicked & Bobbi Brown were a gift from a friend. Don’t Stop was a sample sent for consideration. All other products were purchased by me. All opinions are my own.

      Naturally Eccentric looks really cool on you. I’m sure it would make me look insane, though. xD

      Do you think it’d work for whiting out your natural lip color to make less pigmented lip products look more pigmented?

      • Phyrra

        I think it would, BUT, I think Naked Lipliner would actually be better for that purpose if that’s what you’re looking for.

      Love the Naturally Eccentric lip!!! I may have to try that one! I also really like the Don’t Stop eyeshadow swatch…very pretty metallic!

      It’s a fun mish-mash and all looks darling.

      • Phyrra

        It’s definitely a menagerie of stuff so I figured it was better to throw it into one post instead of a bunch of different ones.

      I’m not sold on Naturally Eccentric by itself, but I love how it looks for layering. I think it looks gorgeous with both of the lipsticks you paired it with.

      Ulta Sunburst reminds me of Fyrinnae Rapunzel Had Extensions.

      • Phyrra

        Yeah Sunburst is like RPE. I keep meaniing to swatch it next to Silk Naturals Cabana, Fyrinnae Rapunzel Had Extensions and Smashbox Flamingo, as they’re all very similar. I think Cabana is supposed to be like MAC Paradisco.

      Can I just say I love you with dark hair! It seriously accentuates your skin tone and eye color. LOVE IT

      • Phyrra

        Thank you! I know my family always preferred the dark for the ‘Snow White’ effect. Me, I like variety ;)

    • Tracy

      Just ordered Naturally Eccentric…couldn’t help it. : )

      • Phyrra

        Yay cool :)

      Where are the last 3 from? Maybe I missed it.

      Naturally Eccentric looks gorgeous layered with those Buxom colours, I wouldnt even think to purchase it for that purpose! I like the look of the NARS duo too :)

      • Phyrra

        Doh, they’re from Brazen Cosmetics! I’ll fix it.

      Alluring has really caught my eye!

      • Phyrra

        It’s gorgeous.

      I think peachykeen looks like a great blush based on your swatch. Actually, it looks like a shade I’ve been looking for for the summer! However, I really hate the packaging. It looks so cheap to me and it makes it look like a line from PacSun or some other brand targeted to preteens. I know it seems a bit shallow of me, but if I’m paying that much for makeup I also want it to look good in addition to it being a good product.

      • Phyrra

        It’s just MAC’s standard black packaging. You can actually get it for slightly cheaper if you buy the refill pan and stick it in your own palette :)

      I so wish I could still wear MAC…..Naturally Eccentric looks right up my alley! It looks great on you!

      • Phyrra

        Aww :(
