Dose of Colors Desi X Katy Review

So I was super excited to receive my Dose of Colors Desi X Katy makeup goodies in the mail.

Box Date Edition

So much so that when I ended up receiving someone else’s package on my doorstep, I about cried (not really, but kinda). I saw two packages and naturally ripped open both of them only to find that one order was incorrect and only had one item. I finally got smart and looked at the shipping info on the box (because shouldn’t you do that in the first place?) and determined my smarty of a post man left me another girls package. I had sat by my computer the day the merchandise dropped since I knew it would sell out. And It did. So if I didn’t receive my stuff, well I would have been disappointed.

Sebastian saw my frustration and being the avid you tuber said “Mom! So you mean someone is unboxing your package somewhere else?!” ha. That kid. But luckily my package hadn’t been “unboxed” and was safe at the post office waiting for me to pick up the next morning.

The DESI X KATY line had eight items in the Collection:

  • “Saváge” Liquid Matte Lipstick
  • “Hot Fire” Liquid Matte Lipstick
  • “No Shade” Creamy Lipstick
  • “More Creamer Please” Creamy Lipstick
  • “Over the Top” Lip Gloss
  • “Fuego” Highlighter
  • “Mírame” Highlighter
  • “The Girls” Palette

Packaging: the packaging is Gold and sparkly and so I was pretty much sold on that alone. (it’s makeup and I am easy). I might sound crazy, but its pretty enough just to display in your makeup collection. I think the packaging is pretty representative of both Desi and Katy.

What I ordered: I picked up everything except the nude lipsticks because I feel like nudes shades just don’t work on me. Maybe I just haven’t found the right shade? 

Eyeshadow Pallate in “The Girls” retails for $28.00

High lighters “Fuego” and “Mirame” retails for $28.00 each

Lipstick in “Hot Fire” and “Savage”  retails for $18.00 each

Gloss in “Over the Top” each retails for $18.00

Shades:

“The Girls” Eyeshadow Pallate

HARPOON– Take metallic to a whole new level with this dazzling shade. A cool tone green base with green and gold reflects. This unique shade is formulated to be used WET.

And if you follow these ladies on social media you’ll know that these eye shadow names were inspired by their cute fur babies.

Fuego – Light Champagne Gold

Mirame – Rose Gold

Hot Fire – Fiery Orange Red

Savage – A rich black base burgundy with a velvet finish

Over the Top– A mega-shine clear gloss infused with reflective gold reflects

Formula: I was happy with everything I purchased in terms of color payout, wear, and application. I thought everything complimented my lighter skin tone. I love that the eyeshadows work best when applied wet and or with your finger. Sometimes it can be your best makeup tool!

The matte lipsticks are not drying at all and didn’t even budge through dinner.

The only product I didn’t care too much for was the over the top clear gloss. I wore it alone and it didn’t really do anything for me. I feel as maybe if I’d worn it over top one of their nudes, it might have worked out better for me. Its nice in that it isn’t sticky at all. But if I had to choose, it would be my least favorite from the collection.

Overall: I am a major fan girl of Desi and so I was really excited to get my hands on this collection. Desi is one of the first you tubers I ever started following and I definitely learned how to do my brows by watching her. The packaging on this collection is really beautiful and the shades and quality of each product follows suite.

I would definitely re buy and recommend anything from this collection.

Stay tuned for future looks with these amazing products!
