Review: Colour Theory

Colour Theory is a new cosmetics brand that is available at Amcal, Amcal Max and Guardian pharmacies across Australia – so you can call it a new ‘drugstore’ brand! The range of products and shade available is quite extensive and prices start from $4. Actually, their products have prices of either $4, $6, $8 or $10. So really, budget beauty at its best.

Eye Shadow Duo in Just Desserts $6

The eye shadow duo in Just Desserts are very soft and wearable colours, perfect for everyday. It leaves a polished look without looking overdone. Just Desserts contains a pale pink shade with soft gold shimmer and a slightly taupe, dark brown, bronze shade with gold shimmer. For $6, the pay off is quite good! Swatch picture shows two swipes, no primer. As for wear time, I got about 5 hours before it started to crease and/or fade away.

Brow Liner Take a Brow $6

This is my first time with a liquid brow liner and it took some time getting used to it. I find the shade slightly too orange (?) for my brows but it didn’t fade throughout the day which is a good thing.

$4 for a black eyeliner pencil? Bargain. This one doesn’t glide on as smoothly as my other more $$ ones however, it doesn’t tug a lot either. It doesn’t last long on my lower lash line but does the job for tightlining and lining the top lash line.

Eyeliner Liquid in Black $6

This is amazing. It does not budge on me at all! It’s a true black as well so there’s no need to keep going over the same line to get it dark. The tip is quite fine allowing for both thick and thin lines.

Slightly coral-neon-warm pink. This was my staple lipstick during Spring for that hint of colour. Lasts long and leaves a slight tint once it starts to fade which is about 3 hours. It’s just a very nice and brightening shade.

One coat wonder for $4 – yay! Gorgeous vibrant red, lasting about 2 days with a top coat before chipping. Only negative thing I have to say is that the brush is short so it was a bit fiddly to apply.

So there you have it – some of my picks from Colour Theory. Being so close to Christmas, I think these would make great stocking stuffers and won’t break the bank either.
