Colour Theory Swatches and First Impressions !

I was recently sent over a few Colour Theory products to try. Colour Theory* was launched in 2013 and is exclusively available at most Amcal, Amcal Max and Guardian Pharmacies. Their line includes products for face, eyes, lips and nails. The range is also available online at Amcal's website. The range is very affordable and has prices starting from $4 and nothing over $10.  

I love the clear packaging, looks very clean and chic.

Eye Shadow Duo in 'Just Desserts' ($6)
The eye shadow duo in Just Desserts is a beautiful everyday combination of a neutral peachy shade and a dark brown shade. The light shade is matte and the dark shade has some shimmer in it. The eye shadows are reasonably pigmented and apply and blend easily on the eyes. The darker shade has better pigmentation than the lighter shade. Bonus points for eye shadow being paraben free. 

Blush in 'Dollhouse' ($6)
The blush is a nice everyday pink color which gives a natural flush on the cheeks. The blush is not insanely pigmented but is not crazy sheer too, just the right balance, which I prefer as I am afraid of going overboard with pigmented blushes. The blush is very smooth and blends easily. The blush is also paraben free.

Lipstick in 'In the Pink' ($6)
My favorite, of the products I have tried, has to be the lipstick. In the Pink, unlike the name suggests is a coral shade and the formula is very moisturising and balmy. It reminded me of Revlon lip butters. This shade is perfect for the spring/summer season. The lipstick is also paraben free. 


Lip Liner in 'Sorority Sista' ($6)
The lip liner in Sorority Sita is a gorgeous everyday pink color. This shade can be paired up beautifully with pink or pinky nude shades. The lip liner is smooth enough that it doesn't tug the lips and you can comfortably fill in the whole lip. 

Mascara Lengthen ($8)
I have been loving the mascara as much as the lipstick and the two are my favorite of the lot. I find the masacara gives me good volume and length for everyday. Sometimes you find the lengthening mascaras fail in the volume department but I find this to be a good all rounder. I don't find it very dramatic but perfect for everyday wear. I also find that it lifts and holds the curl well. Bonus points for the mascara being preservative, fragrance and paraben free. 

Have you tried Colour Theory products ? Which ones will you recommend ?

  1. I love the look of the lipstick and the liner! I'm not sure I can get these in the UK though, which is a shame!
