Christine, did you put anything on under your lips or is the gloss that vibrant, such as swelter and high 90’s? i know i always ask, but i just cant get my lips right. 🙂


I love high 90’s. Next pay I might wander back for Swelter and Tropic Glow…anyone else thinks it looks very similar to By Degrees?

Tropic Glow is a bit brighter, more pink (touch of cool tones to it), whereas By Degrees is mauvey. They’re similar, I suppose, but I didn’t get that they were too close, lol!

thanks for the lovely swatches! how do you think gentle simmer will look with NC35 skin with yellow undertones? i’ve been looking for a sheer neutral pink that won’t look frosty and too pale on my lips.

I am NC30 for reference, so I think it will look fine. It doesn’t have that much pink to it, to be honest – it’s more of a golden-beige with a bit of pink in it.

hmm, did you put anything over high 90s or swelter to tone it down? i played with them and they were more pigmented than that. (didn’t work for me :[ )
