I'm pretty sure that if swatched this on my hand in a shop I wouldn't have bought it. It swatches really orangey and I have a couple of colours like that already. Here it is on my hand:
But on the lips, it's lovely. OK the lighting is slightly different here, as I took the hand-swatch pics in my lightbox and I can't stick my whole head in the thing! But actually this is pretty true to life. It looks much less orangey on and it's a lovely nude shade.
This is a night bright, fuschia pink. I think this would be lovely just with a simple eye look. My camera does unfortunately wash it out a little bit on the swatches.
This is a bright red that is more blue toned than orangey but is a bit of a cross between a deep cherry red and a brick red. It's a lovely shade - although as my teeth are not the whitest in the world I would prefer a deeper blue-toned red because it makes your teeth look whiter than a more orangey shade.
Forgive my lip swatch - as us lippy lovers know, red lips take time and patience to perfect and I just kind of slapped this on quickly for the pic! Also, the pic has washed this out a little too.
