I am a freelance makeup artist and would just like to express my appreciation for your blog. In my ten years of doing makeup, I have never come across an “all things beauty” site as simple and straightforward as yours. I always have clients say that it can be frustrating when ordering makeup online. What you do is extremely helpful to a novice, an expert, and anyone in between. I wish you continued success and I will definitely be sharing this site with friends and clients. Thank you.
With Love and Beauty,
I came across a photo of your arm with swatches on Ebay.
These people shouldn’t steal internet property.
Here is the link:
Hey ur website is v helpful as I live in Pakistan and. No makeup is availbke here… Cn u please tell me if I wear 4 in Armani lasting silk what shade should u buy in Armani luminous silk,, thanks
Hey…read your site for couple of years…didn’t realize you are in the Dallas area. I’d love to be added to your email list for anything awesome going on in the area (even though I’m in Ft. Worth)!! You’re the best…THANKS! Paula
First off, I love your blog: it’s been incredibly helpful and informative for me. But I was wondering what happened to the Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Sneak Peek? I love the lips for Chanel’s F/W 2011 RTW and was excited to find them on your site but now they seem to have disappeared. I was wondering if it would be reposted or if the lineup has changed?
Hi karla!! It’s Janette with Bobbi Brown. Wanted to touch base with you about some makeup stuff. Thanks!!! Talk to you soon. My email email@example.com
Could you tell me if you picked the winner of your giveaway ESSIE RESORT of May, I can not find the answer on your website and I visit it every day because I love your swatches.
Any chance you could swatch the concealer lines of Amazing Cosmetics and of MakeUp Forever Full Cover Concealer? I live in Africa, and though I have both these prodcuts, my colour is changing here and I need to order more online….
Please add more Sephora lipcolors, glosses, eye n lipliner swatches, they are a huge brand! Also please add more Avon lipsticks, from their regular ULTA COLOR RICH LIPCOLOR series. I looove ur site, it has helped me purchase tons of products and is great for researching before going to the store and getting confused! Keep it up!
I want to start by thanking you for all the great work you do on this site. I live an hour away from most of the high-end beauty counters I purchase from and your site helps me to make informed decision before I make the trip or place an online order.
Would you be willing/able to do swatches of the Bobbi Brown Regular Lip Color line? My favorite color “Blush” is being phased out and I’m in panic mode looking for a replacement.
Thank you in advance for considering my request.
Dear Karla, your site has saved me so much money!
For the first time ever I can check out make-up shades that you so carefully research and give us…zillions of mistakes have I experienced even when buying right at the make-up counter but the extra addition of info you add such as “a beige with a little peach” is invaluable to me.
How can I thank you enough!? Mumsie Lee
The Tom Ford make up range is fantastic, I was in awe yesterday at the make up counter. Do you happen to know which shade(s) of lip colour have been used in the photo where Lara Stone is wearing a peachy colour lip? The assistant helping me recreated what she thought was used with Sable Smoke lip colour and Peach Absolut lipgloss but I wasn’t convinced. I would say however that the colour was very creamy and comfortable and had staying power! Thanks, Liz
First, the Portuguese version ….
Eu gostaria de agradecer sua dedicação ao mostrar as nuances dos diversos produtos. Quero que saiba que eu aqui no Brasil, já comprei muita coisa, e todas deram certo. Como você tem o mesmo tom de pele que o meu fica realmente perfeita todas as escolhas.
Um abraço, estarei aqui sempre.
Now your version …
I would like to thank their dedication in showing the nuances of the various products. I want you to know that here in Brazil, already bought a lot, and all went well. As you have the same skin tone is really perfect my every choice.
A hug, I’ll be here forever.
I’m so looking forward to seeing your swatches for Bobbi Brown Holiday 2011 collections. And thank you so much for your fabulous website, it really has saved me a lot of time and money.
Do you think you could swatch the entire Cle de Peau Extra Rich Lipstick line? I love what you did with the Extra Silky ones. Really helps when ordering off the web to see how it looks on “Karla’s arm”. Thanks
MAC.LIP.LINER.SWATCHES. THATS ALL. : )
I stumbled upon your site looking for swatches. I wear Lancome Tient Idole ultra in Ivorie 1 (C) and am looking online at purchasing giorgio armani luminous silk foundation but am having trouble choosing the proper colour. I noticed you had swatches for Lancome and Giorgio could you help me figure out exactly what shade would best suit me? I was thinking either 2 or 3.
Love, love, love your website! Could you please swatch the Laura Merciers Holiday limited editions please (Luxe eye and luxe colour portfolio)? thanks! Marianne
i appreciate your site veriery of products but i am looking online purchase for kinerase cream 0.1% Furfuryladenine in Dubai or i need contacts.
hello. I just wanted to let you know that i think somene stole your swatch pics, and cut out the water mark – posting them as their own. here is the link to the facebook (just scroll throught the picture gallery)
I was wondering which of the Chanel lip liners (any formulation) you would recommend to go with the Chalys lip color. By the way, you MUST try it. It is so beautiful on the lips! I also urge you to try the Tigerlily shadow on your lids. I know you’ve swatched it, but do try it, because it is gorgeous on the eyes. So elegant and so pretty with the sparkle. I adore your website, and enjoy reading it. Have a wonderful New Year and I hope to hear from you soon.
Do you know when the 2012 kaleidoscope will be available, also does this red lip creme have any sparkle? How does it compare to the red in the fall 2011 red in the lip kaleidoscope or other red lipstick kaleidoscopes?
i bought the morange lipstick
and the so chaud lipstick
both are mac
now i need the lip liners for both colors. what lip liners wld u recommend for each?
I am in the Dallas area, please let me know of any local events.
Hi, I love your sight. I have seen many, but never joined. Yours, I had to join, because I love your swatch colors on your arm. And you breakdown of warm and cool and shimmer. I am a makeup fiend, and I hate spending hours trying to figure if the product will be warm or cool, when you have to rely on the container being closed. Today I went to check out the new lip butters and I hated that I could not see what was inside well. Your arms are a fantastic model. Thank you!
Hello! !! Love, love your site. Rely on it so much for swatches of lines that are not available where I live. Soooo I was hoping one day soon you may be able to swatch the new Cle de Peau Lip Luminizers. So very much want one but the website swatches are never reliable, but your trusty arm always is! Many thanks for all the time and work you put into your site, it is appreciated probably more than you know:-) Best, Jenny
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I am so glad I came across your website. Currently, I live in an area that does not have the high to mid end stores I am use to shopping when I lived on the east coast, so I am forced to shop online. I cannot tell you how many purchases I made expecting one color, and when they arrived was not the color that was on the website. Your site has allowed me the opportunity to view the swatches and make an informed decision about the products I would like to purchase (via the internet of course). Again, thank you
Hello! I love your website! specially for the foundation swatches. I don’t know if you have had access to the new laura mercier oil free supreme foundation. It would be awesome if you can swatch it for us the sensitive ladies who need a silicone free formula. Please keep doing foundation swatches!! Thank you
Hi!! Ur swtaches are very helpful..nay i know how can i purchase?pls email me..thank you!!hope to hear from you soon..
I love your website and I referred to you in one of my blog posts. Please subscribe !
Hi, stumbled over your website recently, found it very informative and interesting! Just wondered if you could write about Illamasqua’s Skin Base Foundation and provide swatches? Working out the colours on their website or anywhere else is so tricky and I’ve found your other swatches SOOOOO useful!
Thanks, love from England
Love your site!!! so helpful when finding swatches!! is there any chance you will review/swatch parts of the ck one makeup line? I can only get it online so i’m scared i will order a foundation wrong or something wouldn’t be that great of quality.
Karla Sugar, you are the best. Would you have time to swatch & review the new shades of Giorgio Armani Rouge d’Armani sheers from the Skin Lacquers Collection? I don’t have a store nearby that sells Armani makeup and the lipstick swatches on the websites vary so greatly, there’s no way to tell what the colors actually look like. I appreciate what you do so much! Thank you!
Hi Karla just a heads up Neimans at North Park has the new YSL touche eclat foundation. Its not even on their site yet.
I`m saerching for the Dior Lippstick 444.
Do you have it?
I would love to buy 10 pieces.

I can’t access the latest on your website. I always get the same posting on Aug 3rd. Is there a problem with your website?
You have a very helpful website, I actually feel comfortable ordering makeup online based on your swatches. Can you swatch the cult classic Estee Lauder double wear foundation please
Thanks for an amazing and helpful website. Can you tell me if you know of a similar lipstick to YSL #22 exquisite plum? I really want that lipstick, but heard its discontinued. Thanks!
I truly appreciate your site as I find it very helpful when researching products. Was wondering if you can make some time to swatch the new shade additions to the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation (liquid)…
Where have been, Karla sugar? Hope you are well, missing your blog.
Your website is SO helpful. It is often a daunting task picking out new cosmetics, although it should be fun. Your website makes it easy to see colors on an actual person which is nice because all too often you are rushed in and out or persuaded in one way or another when looking for something new at a makeup counter. Also, colors look totally different on display then they do on and who wants to try on a million colors in public? Thank you for your website and I hope you continue to try these samples for us!
