REVIEW & SWATCHES: DESI X KATY & DOSE OF COLORS COLLAB!

HEY LOVES! I RECENTLY PICKED UP A FEW ITEMS (6 OUT OF 8!) FROM THE BRAND NEW DESI X KATY & DOSE OF COLORS COLLAB, AND I WANTED TO DO A MINI REVIEW FOR YOU GUYS TO LET YOU KNOW WHAT I THINK!

FIRST OF ALL, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE TWO. THEY’RE BOTH DEFINITELY ONE OF MY FAVOURITE YOUTUBE GURUS & I’M PRETTY OBSESSED WITH THEM. THESE GIRLS ARE SO INSPIRING, SUCH GOOD-HEARTED PEOPLE & I WAS TRULY HAPPY TO SUPPORT THIS COLLAB WHEN I HEARD THAT THEY WERE COMING OUT WITH IT. THE FIRST TIME I HEARD OF IT, I LITERALLY SAID OUT LOUD TO MYSELF: “JUST TAKE MY MONEY ALREADY!” THAT THEY DID… AND I’VE GOT TO SAY I’M REALLY HAPPY CAUSE’ I LOVE ALL OF THESE PRODUCTS!

THEY  DID A GREAT JOB CURATING TO THEIR FELLOW LIGHT/MEDIUM-TAN SKIN TONE GALS OUT THERE, AND I FELT LIKE I DEFINITELY HIT THE JACKPOT. SOMETIMES IT’S HARD TO FIND SOMETHING THAT’LL SIT JUST RIGHT ON THE SKIN DUE TO MY SKIN TONE, AND ALL THE PRODUCTS, ESPECIALLY THE HIGHLIGHTERS AND THE LIPSTICKS LOOK ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! ENOUGH WITH THE RAMBLING… LET’S DIVE RIGHT IN TO THE ACTUAL REVIEW!


 

 

THIS PACKAGING THOUGH…

 

 

OVERVIEW OF PRODUCTS

 

HIGHLIGHTERS: 

“MIRAME”- SOFT ROSE-GOLD

“FUEGO”- SOFT YELLOW-GOLD 

“FUEGO”

“MíRAME”

BOTH OF THESE HIGHLIGHTERS TAKE ME TO HEAVEN. THEY GIVE ME SUCH A GREAT “MAKEUP” DAY AND LASTS A LONG TIME ON THE SKIN! THEY’RE NOT BLINDING AT FIRST, BUT YOU CAN DEFINITELY BUILD THE COLOUR- WHICH I APPRECIATE. NO CHUNKY GLITTERS WHATSOEVER, JUST EFFORTLESS SHIMMERS THAT GIVE YOUR SKIN SUCH A GRACEFUL YET “WHAT HIGHLIGHT YOU WEARING GIRL I’MMA NEED THAT ASAP” TYPE OF GLOW. I ADORE BOTH OF THESE SHADES BTW! WHEN I’M TAN, MIRAME SEEMS TO WORK BETTER WITH MY SKIN TONE, AND FUEGO IS PERFECT FOR THOSE COLDER MONTHS WHERE MY SKIN IS A BIT LIGHTER IN COMPLEXION. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THESE HIGHLIGHTERS, YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY!

LEFT TO RIGHT-> FUEGO & MIRAME

 

EYESHADOW PALETTE

“THE GIRLS”

“NOLI”- METALLIC WHITE CHAMPAGNE GOLD

“SUZ”- BRONZE WITH NEUTRAL UNDERTONES (NOT TOO REDDISH/COPPER) WITH GOLD REFLECTS

“TURBOSAN”- DEEP VIOLET WITH HINTS OF RED UNDERTONES & SILVER/BLUEISH REFLECTS

“HARPOON”- COOL-TONED GREEN WITH GREEN/GOLD REFLECTS

 

THIS EYESHADOW PALETTE IS SOMETHING ELSE. IT’S QUITE UNIQUE IN THE SENSE THAT IT DOESN’T HAVE ANY MATTE/TRANSITION SHADES, WHICH I PERSONALLY LOVE BECAUSE I HAVE WAY TOO MANY OF THOSE ALREADY.

I LOVE THAT THIS “STATEMENT” EYESHADOW PALETTE HAS A LOT OF BEAUTIFUL SHADES THAT I CAN WEAR DURING THE DAY & NIGHT! SO VERSATILE, AND I’VE BEEN ABLE TO CREATE SOME GORGEOUS, EYE-CATCHING LOOKS WITH THIS! DEFINITELY GIVES THE CENTRE OF MY LID A GORGEOUS POP OF COLOUR, AND COMPLIMENTS A LOT OF EYE LOOKS. BTW- SUZ & HARPOON ARE APPLIED WITH A WET FINGERTIP! FYI IT WON’T SHOW UP WELL WITHOUT DABBING YOUR FINGER IN A BIT OF WATER FIRST. YOU DON’T NEED WATER FOR TURBOSAN & NOLI THOUGH. THESE SHADES ARE BEAUTIFUL AS WELL AND EASIER TO APPLY, BUT I DO RECOMMEND USING YOUR FINGERS FOR APPLICATION AS WELL IN ORDER TO GET BETTER COLOUR PAY-OFF!

TOP ROW: SUZ, NOLI

BOTTOM ROW: TURBOSAN, HARPOON

 

LIP GLOSS:

“OVER THE TOP”- CLEAR GLOSS WITH GOLD GLITTER

LOVE THIS PRODUCT! IT GIVES MY LIPS A NICE JUICY LOOK TO THEM… IT’S VERY MOISTURIZING, NOT STICKY AT ALL AND THE HINTS OF GOLD GLITTER ISN’T TOO GRITTY ON THE LIPS WHICH IS AWESOME! AT FIRST, I WAS A TAD SCARED THAT IT MAY FEEL A BIT WEIRD WHEN APPLIED, BUT IT DOESN’T FEEL LIKE I HAVE CHUNKY GLITTER ON MY LIPS. ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS OVER THE “HOT FIRE” LIQUID LIPPIE!


 

CREAMY LIPSTICK:

“MORE CREAMER PLEASE”- PEACHY BROWN NUDE

SO BEAUTIFUL, SO CREAMY. APPLIES EFFORTLESSLY. ONE SWIPE & I’M OUT THE DOOR. THIS CREAMY SATIN LIPSTICK GIVES ME LIFE. NOTHING MORE TO SAY. IT LOOKS GREAT WITH MY SKIN TONE, AND DOESN’T PULL TOO PINK ON ME WHICH I ABSOLUTELY LOVE. I’M MORE INTO BEIGE-NUDE PEACHY TYPE LIPPIES, AND THIS ONE TAKES THE CAKE!

 

LIQUID MATTE LIPSTICK

“HOT FIRE” – FIERY ORANGE/RED

LAST BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST- HOT FIRE! NOW WHERE DO I START? IT’S A WONDERFUL, COMFORTABLE MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK THAT GLIDES ON SMOOTHLY WITH PRETTY MUCH ONE SWIPE. THE COLOUR IS SO INTENSE THAT ONE SWIPE IS ALL I NEED TO GET THE EVENNESS & PAY-OFF THAT I WANT! THIS SHADE IS SO FLATTERING ON MY MEDIUM SKIN TONE & I THINK IT’D BE GREAT FOR ANYONE WHO LOVES A RED/ORANGE LIP. I THINK THIS COLOUR IS SUCH A STAPLE FOR THE SUMMERY MONTHS, & I’M SO HAPPY THAT I ADDED THIS TO MY COLLECTION. BTW, I’M NOT THE BIGGEST FAN OF LIQUID LIPPIES, BUT DOSE OF COLORS HIT IT RIGHT WITH THIS FORMULA. HOT DANG! SO COMFORTABLE ON THE LIPS & DOESN’T DRY THEM OUT OR SETTLE INTO THE FINE LINES TOO MUCH. I USUALLY HAVE THAT ISSUE WITH OTHER LIQUID LIPSTICKS, BUT NOT THIS ONE WHICH IS A MAJOR PLUS!
