Colour Theory is a brand that's new to me. It's a very affordable brand, where prices of products start from $4, and nothing costs more than $10.
I've been trialling some of these products over the past month or so, and am now finally ready to share my thoughts!
|Colour Theory Blush in Bare Minimum|
I'm really digging the packaging of this blush (as well as the eyeshadow below). I love the clear acrylic look, despite the lack of mirror. I also don't think it looks cheap either (it retails for $6).
They've aptly named this blush "Bare Minimum", as it is indeed a bare minimum shade. So bare, that it barely shows up on my skin. I feel like I can use this as a finishing/setting powder, rather than as a blush. I have to admit that I have yet to try this as a finishing/setting powder, after attempting to get this to show up on my face as a blush.
I obviously can't provide any information on how good Colour Theory blushes are (e.g. pigmentation, blendability, longevity) since the shade does not work for me as a blush.
|Colour Theory Eye Shadow Duo in Berrylicious|
This eyeshadow duo is quite impressively good for $6. Both shades are pigmented and aren't too powdery. They also blend easily for a quick, gorgeous, easy look. I love the two shades - one is a frosty pale pink shade that looks really good on the inner corner of your eyes and/or on the brow bone as a highlight, the other shade is a frosty wine shade with a little bit of glitter. The glitter is quite sparse, and totally unnecessary in my opinion, but it doesn't detract the quality of this eyeshadow duo (especially considering the price).
|Colour Theory Lip Liner in Sorority Sista|
This lip liner is so pigmented and does not tug on my lips at all! It doesn't feel drying either. What more can you ask for a lip liner? At $6, this is an absolute bargain.
Sorority Sista is a gorgeous watermelon/medium pink shade that is perfect for everyday wear.
|Colour Theory Lipstick in Nude Mood|
I'm a little disappointed with this lipstick shade. Whilst it looks like a safe nude shade in the tube, it's quite a light pink shade on the lips - makes me feel like I've got Nicki Minaj light pink lips on (note: slight exaggeration here) - perhaps it's due to the slight frosty finish?
However, it's not too crazy that I would feel uncomfortable wearing (I don't have the confidence to wear crazy bold/loud colours on the lips), but I was hoping for a more nude/mauve shade.
The formula itself is amazing for $6! It's super pigmented, creamy and non-drying.
|L-R: Eyeshadow Duo in Berrylicious, Lipstick in Nude Mood, Lip Liner in Sorority Sista|
I haven't been able to test out the waterproof property of this mascara, but I really like the formula of it - so much so, that I'm bringing this with me on my holiday to Singapore tomorrow!
It's a fantastic mascara that volumises and separates your lashes, so you don't get the clumpy spidery look. It also holds a curl pretty well. For $8, you can't go wrong with this mascara!
