Unboxing: Dose of Colors DESI x KATY Collection

Hi All!

I am so excited because my recent Dose of Colors order has arrived!  Dose of Colors recently launched a collab with YouTubers DesiPerkins and LustreLux (2 of the YouTubers that I’ve watched for years!) and I knew that this was another collab that I could not miss out on.  I like both of their makeup styles and the types of looks that they both tend to gravitate towards, so I knew that I’d be a fan of whatever they came out with.  I haven’t ever purchased any Dose of Colors products before, not because I haven’t had my eye on anything, but because I’m not a huge fan of purchasing items without having ever seen a single thing from the product line in person, but I thought why not for a special collection release!

I ordered 3 of 8 items from the collection and they came in this nude box.  I love the box it was shipped in, I love the boxes that each item came in, and I love the packaging of the products themselves!

I was very happy that all of the products were well protected within layers of bubble wrap, as I’ve heard that some companies don’t even bother to protect the items that are being shipped out…yikes!  Here are the items that I purchased!

First up, the item that I was most excited for, was the lipgloss in the shade “Over the Top”.  It is BEAUTIFUL in person!  In the packaging, and even on my swatch below, it looks like the gold flecks would be very in-your-face and possibly tacky looking, but it’s not at all.  It’s very subtle and just makes your lips look very glossy in a pretty way.  I wore it briefly and so far it’s very comfortable on the lips (not too chunky or sticky), it smells like vanilla – yum, but I can slightly feel the gold flecks if I rub my lips together but it does not bother me at all.

Up next, I ordered the lipstick in the shade “More Creamer Please”.  This is described as a deeper nude with a brown/peach undertone, and I mainly wanted this because I don’t own any other colors like it.  I’m not exactly sure how I feel about it just yet because it pulls VERY orange on me, especially when applied to my lips, but the formula is very nice and comfortable and it also has a nice vanilla-y scent to it!

Lastly, I ordered the highlighter in the shade “Mírame”, again for the reason that I don’t have anything like this in my collection.  I’ve heard this described as a rose gold highlighter meant for users with deeper skin tones, and they weren’t kidding.  For some reason I thought I’d be able to pull it off, but I definitely cannot lol!  I did try it on, and while it did look great from the side, it gave me the dark cast on my cheek bone when I looked straight forward.  It is a BEAUTIFUL highlighter though, but I will either probably use it as an eyeshadow OR give it to my sister who would look great with this!

This was yet another collection that sold out the day of the launch, but I’ve read that the restock for all items should happen at some point in September if anyone is interested!  I hope you enjoyed this quick unboxing.  Please do let me know if any of you have ordered items from this collab and what you thought of it!

xo,

Lauren

  1. Love Desi and Katy! They are both so beautiful and talented. Thanks for sharing these products with us. I was not able to get anything from the collection this time around. Hopefully I can get a hold of one of the lipsticks when the collection gets restocked!
