Dose of Colors Makeup Haul: DesixKaty & More!

Another makeup haul? Yup, I can’t seem to stop myself from buying more makeup, but this time I had a good reason – Desi Perkins and Katy (aka LustreLux) did a collab with the makeup brand, Dose of Colors. I absolutely LOVE them and just had to snatch it up!

Hello beauties and welcome back!

Today I am going to share with y’all what I got in this Dose of Colors makeup haul. It’s my first time purchasing from this brand and I’m so excited because I’ve heard so many great things about it and Desi and Katy are two of my favorite beauty YouTubers. So if you’re interested in seeing what I got, just keep reading!

Desi x Katy Collab

Before I get into the specifics of each product, let me just say that the packaging for this collab is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING, especially the eyeshadow quad and highlights. The exterior material actually reminds me of this mini makeup bag that I got from Lancome last December.

The Girls Eyeshadow Quad

This quad contains four shimmer/metallic eyeshadows that are named after Desi & Katy’s dogs. They didn’t want matte or transition shades in this quad because they felt that everyone already had plenty of those types of colors in their collection. So they decided on stand out shimmer/metallic shades that could be used on the eyes to add “that
something extra” or to make their makeup look pop. 

  • Suz is a champagne color that must be used WET for maximum texture and color payoff. It can be used on the lid or inner corner.
  • Noli is a rich bronze color that has gold reflects and can be used dry.
  • Harpoon reminds me of a pewter color. It has gold shimmer in it but with almost a greenish-base. It’s definitely a unique color that I haven’t really seen before. This shade does need to be used WET.
  • Turbosan has a purple brown base with a bunch of purple silver glitter. This shade can be used dry.

It is recommended that all four shades be applied with a finger and not a brush, but I have seen people do makeup looks using a brush and it still looks amazing!


Supreme Glow Highlighters

Fuego is a champagne gold highlight with a very yellow undertone. It is more gold than champagne. On Katy, it looks absolutely stunning, but I think this highlight looks too yellow on me.

Mirame is a deep, bronzy gold highlight, but at some angles, it can look almost like rose gold. I thought this highlight was going to be too dark on me, but I saw that many people, who had received these highlights at the launch party, were saying that Mirame really surprised them. They thought it would be too dark based on the color that comes off the pan, but on the face, it’s actually lighter. I ended up liking Mirame more, but I’ll still wear both.


Hot Fire is BEAUTIFUL! I don’t have very many red-orange lip products. This is actually the only red-orange liquid lipstick that I have. All the other products are regular lipstick formulas. I’m so excited to have this in my collection. Even though summer is coming to an end, I am going to wear this as much as I can. It is the perfect red-orange shade for summer!

Over The Top is a clear gloss with gold reflects in it. The glitter isn’t chunky or overbearing. It just gives the lips a pretty shimmering effect. I have been obsessed with glosses the last month, so I will be definitely wearing this a lot.

More lippies!

The following lip products I’m about to talk about are not part of the Desi x Katy collab, but I still got them because I’ve heard so many great things about them.

Matte Liquid Lipstick

These are all super pigmented, transfer-proof and feel super lightweight on the lips!

Camp Fire is a terracotta, burnt orange.

Bare With Me is a peachy pink nude.

Truffle is a pinky brown.

Lip It Up Satin Lipstick

Holy cow! These lipsticks are so pigmented. For the swatches, I only swiped the lipstick across my arm ONCE. For a satin formula, I think these lipsticks feel a tad too dry. When I top it with a clear gloss, my lips feel much better.

Brûlée is a light pinky nude.

Parfait is a cool toned, Barbie pink.

Mocha is a rosy taupe. In some light, it may look like a deep, muted, brown burgundy.

Toast is brown beige nude.

That was a lot of products we just went through – wow!

      Ulta is going to have a sale on the matte liquid lipsticks on one of the days during the 21 Days of Beauty sale ! You should definitely snatch some up then! I think they’ll be like $9 instead of $17!

    I absolutely love Desi and Katy too! The packaging is beautiful. They did a great job. I really like the shades they chose for their eyeshadow quad. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a colour like Harpoon before. It’s very unique! The Campfire lip colour is amazing too!
