Desi x Katy Dose of Colors Review and Swatches

Thursday, December 7, 2017

Popular YouTubers Desi Perkins and Katy of Lustrelux (they're best friends) collaborated with makeup brand Dose of Colors on a makeup collection several months ago. It sold out the first time. It took a month or two to restock. During the Thanksgiving holidays they held a sitewide 40% off sale. So, I was able to get everything I wanted from the collection at a really great price. What attracted me to this collection, were the beautiful nude & metallic colors and gorgeous packaging. The packaging is so pretty & glitzy! It has that sparkle like the Mariah Carey x MAC collection. Below are my thoughts.

  Desi xKaty Dose of Colors Collection is Sweet

 

Desi x Katy Dose of Colors: Mirame (Rose Gold Highlighter) 

$28 (I paid $16.80) - Still Available

Let's do a makeup progression! This collection offered two highlighters! This is Mirame, which is a rose gold highlighter. It's very dark in the pan! When swatched, it is a gorgeous GOLD! FYI, The other highlighter is called Fuego. It seems like a lighter gold, so I'm glad I purchased this one. It applies really well and looks great on the skin. I forgot to apply my Smashbox primer, so you see a lot of texture in the pictures I took. But I applied it on my nose, cheeks, and cupids bow in the picture below.


Desi x Katy Dose of Colors: More Creamier Please (Nude with brown/peach undertone) 

Creamy Matte Finish - $16 (I paid $9.60) - Still Available

There were four lipsticks offered in the collection. A red (hot fire), purple (savage), no shade (light peachy nude) and more creamier please (which I'm wearing). I didn't know if I would be able to pull this shade off. Looking at pics, it seemed close to my skin tone. But I love it. It's very soft and looks really good. The creamy matte formula also feels really good on my lips. I always worry about mattes.


Desi x Katy Dose of Colors: The Girls Eyeshadow Palette

$Original Price??? (I paid $16.80) - Sold Out (you can find on eBay)

I only follow Katy of Lustrelux, so I know two of these shades are named after her dogs (Turbo & Suz). They are so funny. She always features them on her Snapchat Stories. They suggest you use these WET! So I swatched them both dry & wet for you. Excuse the green swatch! My brush was a little too wet. I use the brown & gold shade in my pics below; I didn't have any problems. They're metallic and have a lot of sparkle! But they give a very nice look. I think both did a great job with this collection.

The shades in this collection aren't the kind I would normally go for, but I'm surprised by how much I like the colours - especially the highlighter, it looks just gorgeous! I love the final look you put together, Kim. I don't know either of these YouTubers, but I will have to check them out.

I was so excited when I heard they collab with Dose of Colours but when I saw the shades, I was a little disappointed. Didn't get anything from this collection, I wish they released more bold colours.
