Brand Focus: Colour Theory + Spring Look


In the Arts world, Colour Theory is a phenomenon that took shape in the 18th century, the colour wheel, colour harmony and colour mixtures guided media, fashion, beauty and is very much an intergral part of our daily life. When I found out that there was a cosmetic brand called Colour Theory, an instant attraction was developed.













Lip Liner in Red-y Set Go! $6

A really gorgeous red lip liner that can be used for all warmer reds. The liner is ultra smooth, soft and easy to apply. Lip liners are a must for me when wearing a brighter or darker shade lip colour, ensure to fill in your whole lips if you want to enhance the longevity of your lipstick.

I couldn't pick a single con for this lip liner, it does what it should be doing and for $6 you really can't go wrong.


 Eyeshadow Duo in Just Desserts $6
 Pink is a colour that I wouldn't usually wear on my lids, but this is a really nice combo for a spring look. The soft pink is matte, not overly pigmented and quite subtle, while the greyish brown has a hint of shimmer to add depth/contrast to your lids. I also like to use the darker colour to line my bottom lash line. Texture wise the pink feels a tiny bit chalky whilst the darker shade is a little bit more creamy with great colour pay off. Since I'm not much of a pink eyeshadow person, I actually prefer the texture and subtly of the pink shade.
 Lipstick in Siren $6

The perfect deep red for warmer skin tones, although I honestly feel deep reds will suit pretty much all skin tones, warm, cool or neutral. It's just a beautiful shade! I enjoyed the acrylic packaging, I can see the colour of the lipstick without having to open the lids (as I do with my Shiseido lipsticks). I found this lipstick to be long lasting with great colour pay off. It's removable with a fair amount of cleanser or makeup remover. My lips are quite dry so it did dry up a bit when applied from the bullet, as with most lipsticks, hence I recommend a lip balm to go underneath.

 Black Waterproof Mascara $8
 It's only been recent that I got into "drug store" mascaras, when it comes to my lashes I splurge - only to find that they are more or less the same thing. I wasn't sure what to expect from this mascara but it wowed me. For $8 this baby did my lashes well - it held my curl and volumnised. It kept it's promise and did not give me panda eyes.
Blush in Cheeky Glow $6

I LOVE this blush, I've been using my MAC blush for the past year and it's just too pigmented. I want to be able to dip into my blush, swirl the brush around and apply it on my face without looking like a clown. This enabled me to do just that and it was liberating. I am mindful that the blush is quite pale and may not show up well on medium skin tones. It's more of a dusty pink but appears a little coral on my skin, which I also love, I personally prefer sutble cheeks so it is perfect for me.

 
Nail Polish in Tangerine Dream $4
Orange is one of my favourite colours so I loved this polish by default. It's been 5 days since I painted my nails with Colour Theory and I have not noticed any chips. Even though nail polishes don't tend to chip on me as quickly (don't ask me why), this product exceeded my expectations. I feel that this polish is of better quality than its' more expensive counterparts. I can't believe it's only $4. The only factor that I thought was inconvenient was the length of the brush, it wasn't very long and I usually prefer longer brushes for application purposes. Nonetheless I am still quite pleased.

After much deliberation, I decided to go back on youtube, due to my crazy work schedule and consideration for your time, my videos will be short, but it will show you the products in action and will  act as a supplement for my reviews/posts where suitable.
