The very brown (Blake and Omar) and all of the metallics. I just can’t pull off those sorts of shades. Then I’m rounding to get to 10. Works! I also got Peter so that takes one out too, right?
50 isn’t a number of choices I can handle…

Addison and Collin are coming my way, love the lipswatches of them! Kinda regret not buying Patrick though… But honestly, i really don’t like รกll the shades, like the more sheer shimmery ones, i don’t think you need to pay that much for lipsticks like that…

Alright! My final tally is…Stavros (x2. Yeap, I got a backup I love it so much. I hate buying backups so that’s how much I love it), Julian (I love Julian and think he may have the best texture in my lot haha…sounds terrible), Olivier (if I didn’t love lavender-pinks so much this would go back too because the shimmer does bunch a little. But the color wears very well on me and is “my” color so it stays), Liam (best purple in the collection), and Beau (Tom Ford nudes flatter me more than most nudes). Patrick I am in lust with, but I have Guerlain Georgia and it doesn’t strike me as quite different enough. Alasdhair is very pretty and wears well, but I have the precious Black Orchid and pretty Bruised Plum so its slight pink shift isn’t different enough and that’s going to a friend who loves it. Richard is also going back. I love this shade but it absolutely does not suit me. Looks awesome on everyone else, just not right on my coloring.

I like the Tom Ford formula, but not as much as the Rouge G formula so that’s where my 50 for a full tube goes. After this, I’m set on the formula for life barring an amazing release like Stavros or if Black Orchid ever comes out again. If Tom Ford regularly offered this size at 32, I would be all over it all the time.

Thank you so much for the dedicated, thorough, helpful reviews that I know truly allowed your readers to make informed selections. And of course for devoting your wallet and lips to this massive task! This is why you’re the best, Christine.

I just adore the way Stavros looks on you and stick by my “Queen Badass of the Faeries” assessment ๐Ÿ˜‰ Stavros is hands-down my personal fav too. Julian’s texture it amazing, but Stavros is something really special. It’s not often enough that something so unique is made, especially on the high-end. I feel much better knowing I have a backup of it now ๐Ÿ˜›

Personally, when I see them all like that I think Stavros and Guillermo both look so special on you. And Patrick is very much your pink. I know you rarely get the chance to enjoy your products post-review, so I hope you get to have some of that too ๐Ÿ™‚

Could you comment on the differences between Alejandro and Luciano? I can’t really see much difference between them on my monitor but they both look like “my” red so I’ll definitely want one of them.

All of the swatches are great! I want to limit myself to 3, and maybe each of them with a different finish. So far, I know I need Julian, but am still having a difficult time with the other 2. Too many choices! I do love that they are mini size. Much like purses, I usually get tired of a lipstick shade before its worn out!

Thank you so much for the swatch ’round-up’. It helped me work out which four colours out of 50 I should get, which took a bit of time. I eventually chose Patrick, Matthew, Luciano and Rafael. I can only hope that I don’t feel like I’ve wasted my money when they arrive. o.0
