New brand: Colour Theory HAUL!

Hellooooooooo.

OK. Had my last exam a bit more than a week ago. Typical me, never studied the night before. Instead, spent it prancing around online, catching up on one of my favourite blogs, Kitsch Snitch by Kat.

She has a post here, which featured a new budget brand called Colour Theory. Have anyone ever heard, or tried?

I've always received emails about Colour Theory, but never really cared for them. I'm biased and picky, especially against brands that are not stocked at department stores or chemists which are easy to access, such as Priceline and Big W. 

Reading Kat's post on the brand sparked a few interests in me, so off I went to check which stores stocked em.

WHAT?!
Only two pharmacies stock Colour Theory?!
...And the first pharmacy has NO stockists near me. Okay, let's check the second pharmacy.. although it sounds completely alien to me. 

The second pharmacy didn't have a stockist near me neither. BUT, it has a stockist near where I was heading to the NEXT day. Yeap. It was opposite of my university, Amcal Pharmacy. Good stuff!

Headed there after my exam in the evening, picked up a few new products. Here they are:



Colour Theory Bronzer Summer Sun ($8/3 shades)
Saw this in three shades. They had a good shade range though. One cool-toned, one warm-toned and one which was darker than both, but also more neutral (the one I chose).



Colour Theory Lipsticks ($6)
Wide shade range, this one. I chose Fuchsia Frenzy and Pouty Pink. Fuchsia Frenzy for the finish, it was the mattest (although still somewhat glossy) and Pouty Pink for its easy to wear colour. Hoping to update you soon since I already have a slight impression of how it is.



Colour Theory Eyeliner ($4)
You're probably wondering why the hell did I choose blue. Well, I didn't really expect this colour to be as bright as it is. I expected to be like a dark navy liner, to make my eye colour stand out.. in which I was wrong. Double liner is probably the way to go, to make use of this. Zzz. 


But yeah, that's all for the haul. Cheap and affordable brand. Reminds me a lot of Ulta3 and essence. Still trialling around, so not much to say about the quality yet.


In case you're feeling keen on the brand, here is the link to their website which also includes their store locator!

OH! And here's a snap of me wearing Fuchsia Frenzy.. (^_^)/

  2. I read Kat's post too and was definitely intrigued! I like the look of them, but I don't think I have either of the stocking pharmacies near me either! Will have to look at the store locator though.

  10. You must be super smart and confident, Tram! :) I don't think I'd survive if I didn't study the night before. Then again, I question how much info I actually retain from the studying I do the night before! :P
