FOTD Using Naked 2 & Revlon Peach Parfait Lip Butter

I'm happy with this look today using some tried and true products from my collection (although I went a bit heavy on the foundation which caked a bit into the day).

There are several comments on my Revlon Lip Butter Swatches Youtube video (http://youtu.be/aGQqE_kgXJU) that the Peach Parfait shade in particular looks so different on viewers as it does on me, so I've been wearing it for a few days to get a good feel for it. It's definitely true that this looks nothing like the Peach Parfait that Emma Stone wears in the Revlon ads- bizarre but not surprising.

This is why researching multiple swatches is so important for those researching cosmetic shades and formulations. The number of variances (lighting, flash, photographic equipment, computer display settings, angle of viewing laptop screen, exposure, white balance, contrast, saturation, skin tone, application method, lip condition, bare lip shade etc), makes any individual swatch (even my much-utilized temptalia) relatively unhelpful without at least one other swatch of the same product as something to compare the first one to. At least for me... I strongly recommend using multiple sources to get a clearer picture of a swatch.

Hope you have a beautiful day today,
