Cameleon swatches?

Post by mamakatrien on Wed Nov 07, 2012 2:17 pm

Have any of you bought the new cameleon paint? Could you share a picture of it on the skin? They have some really interesting colours!

Hi Kammy, thanks for posting these swatches... I've also been considering trying a cake or two of theirs. From your photo, the white (if indeed white and not silver) doesn't look very opaque though. Am I seeing this correctly?

Three of the cakes have silver in. Jellyfish and Naughty Fairy both have a line of silver and a line of white, and I haven't had any opacity problems. I did swatch these quite quickly, so possibly didn't catch the white so well on the brush. They're pretty creamy and go on quite richly pigmented. Smile

Are they easy to remove, Kammy? I have PartyXplosion splitcakes, and while I love them... They stain my fair skin Sad

Out of the four Colorblocks I own, the only one I've had staining issues with is Snowflake. The lightest blue is Stainy McStainerson on me, as I'm very fair too! It does come off with a little skin oil and cotton wool, though, and I've never had it NOT disappear by the next morning.

The others don't stain on me at all. Smile

I'm going to try and remove stainy paints with some baby oil. I just don't feel comfortable using them on kiddo's if I have trouble removing them myself!

You have the Prisma Blendset Fleur cake too, don't you Kammy? Do you like that one? I get this feeling that in order to get an easily removable splitcake, I have to sacrifice the colour separation, do you think that's the case?

All of the cameleon colours are amazing!
Silver and gold are very pigmented, which means they're not as opaque as most brands I've tried. The gold especially has great coverage. And I love that the metallics are the same consistency as the baseline colours, so in a colour block they blend very well.
I'll post some pics soon Smile

I love some of the cameleon - but have major staining issues with the teal. Oddly enough have two of the splits though I think I have wow and jelly bean - I am not having issues at all with the blue in them? (which I may be wrong but I think is robins egg) I don't understand why, and its definitely a good thing, but thought it worth a mention.

You know, I always have issues with certain colours staining my skin (greens and blues, and for some brands orange and yellow), and what really helps to wash it off is that new cameleon brush soap... As i was making these swatches, i had a wash cloth with that new soap (since i received one as a gift), and it just washed off without even having to rub it cheers

^ handy to know but I'm guessing the average customer won't have access to brush soap! Wink 

Am looking at replacing my Wolfe black & Wolfe white with Chameleon when they run out. I read in another thread that they're great for linework, but without the goopiness of the new Wolfe formula. Wondering how others are finding Chameleon for linework?

Personally, I live in a subtropical climate and even though this is an issue with most paints to a degree where I live, I found the Cameleon to go very, VERY soft and rather goopy I actually still find Wolfe holds up best with the heat, (though I only use the black and white ones, for linework, as I live in Australia and they are much more expensive than Tag here)
