I was recently sent some Colour Theory products to trial and I really didn't know what to expect as I've never tried anything from the brand before. I was very pleasantly suprised with the prodcuts I trialled and I've decided to do a little feature on the lip trio I was sent because I was so impressed with them. Colour Theory is a budget Australia budget beauty brand exclusive to Amcal and Guardian Pharmacies and everything from the makeup range is either $4, $6, $8 or $10 and from what I've seen, well worth the bargain price!
Colour Theory Lip Liner in Sorority Sista* ($6.00)
This lip liner is a really pretty bright pink and has really amazing pigmentation. I would happily wear this alone for the beautiful matte finish and pop of colour but it works equally well under a slightly sheer lipstick or topped with a nice gloss. I always used to think of lip liners as a elderly lady kind of makeup prodcut but I've recently been converted and Sorority Sista is now one of my favourite products.
Colour Theory Lipstick in In the Pink* ($6.00)
This is probably not a lipstick that I would have picked up for myself but I strangely quite like it! It's a really shimmery, glossy pink that's slightly sheer and very wearable. The combo of In the Pink and Sorority Sista is pretty spot on as the lip liner really makes the lipstick pop. I also really like the clear packaging, makes it much easier to see what colour you're reaching for in the depths of your handbag/makeup drawer. Unfortunately, the colour doesn't really last that well, I guess because it's such a sheer colour.
Colour Theory Lip Gloss in Strawberry Sorbet* ($8.00)
Anyone who's been a long-time follower will know how much I hate lip glosses. I hate the tacky, sticky feeling and they bring back bad memories of my high school makeup attempts. I guess I must have just been trying the wrong glosses because Strawberry Sorbet and I have a little something going on together! This gloss feels much more moisturising and is glossy rather than tacky, you don't get that horrible sticky lips situation at all. The shade is a soft pink with just a hint of gold shimmer and looks amazing over Sorority Sista.
What I love most about this lip trio is that they work well alone or in any combination. My favourite combination so far is all three worn together for a perfect pink pout!
