Dose Of Colors Lip It Up Satin Lipstick Review And Unboxing – Rachelle Kathleen 

Hello my beautiful people!,

I was SO stoked when I received a box from Dose of colors the other day! They have seriously been spoiling me with some goodies as of late. The latest and greatest being this BEAUTIFUL Satin Lipstick from their Lip It Up line. So let’s go ahead and get started!

Packaging:

Oh my goodness the packaging!  These lipsticks have a beautiful, sleek and solid faux rose gold casing that glides like butter up or down when you twist the bottom section of the tube. They look and feel solid, and that gives them a truly luxurious feeling when you’re using or holding them! I found myself being SO careful as I was opening them because they really are THAT pretty lol! These lipsticks are also larger than your regular lipstick. I would compare them to the size of liquid lipstick or jumbo lip crayon.

Overall:

I was more than impressed with the packaging of these. If I were to be extremely (and I mean EXTREMELY) picky about these; the only negative that I’ve seen or noticed is that when the lipstick is lowered all the way, the logo and tip don’t line up (as seen above). Which personally doesn’t bother me one little bit! However I thought it’d be worth a mention just in case that is something that may drive you bonkers 😅



Color and Application: 

The color scheme and selection in this line makes me melt. You’ve got muted nudes, pinky nudes, brown nudes, dark nudes, light nudes, rosy nudes….need I go on?! You have it all! I honestly don’t think there is one color in this entire set that I wouldn’t wear or love. I have NO complaints on the color scheme or selection of this collection. I really feel they put a lot of time into not only each color – but the entire set as a whole as well. 


Pigmentation and Application:

As far as pigmentation and application goes, the lipstick itself feels very moisturizing, creamy and buttery when applied. It is VERY pigmented and I found that it went on evenly and lasted me until I ate lunch in the afternoon around 5-6 hours from the time I first applied it. They set and act like a true Satin. Not too matte, but not too glossy either. I did notice that this lipstick did start to set and separate a little bit into the the dry areas of my lips by the afternoon. However, it was only noticeable when I was looking closely and this tends to happen with any lipstick for me unfortunately. 


In Summary:

 These lipsticks are great. On the scale of 1-5 stars, I would give them a 4.8. They are seriously SO close to being absolutely perfect in my opinion and I just love them. It’s not often when you can look at a makeup collection and say “I love and would wear every color in that collection”. So for me that definitely tipped the scale!

Casual Princess 

Hello beauties!


Here is a fun outfit I put together and wore out to lunch with my boo thang! I LOVE the classic Disney princess movies – so when I saw this shirt, I HAD TO HAVE IT. Etsy gets the best of my bank account sometimes! 😅 And since I know you’re all wondering: YES – THEY HAVE ALL THE PRINCESSES!……. Basically – That’s the kind of news that requires a moment of silence and a chair to sit down. 😂 I’ve only purchased Cinderella so far, but I have this feeling that somehow each and every single one of these shirts is going to be in my collection and wardrobe soon enough 😏

Don’t mind my dirty shoes 😭

DIY: How To Change the Undertone Of Your Foundation 

Hello my beauties!

I hope you’re all have a beautiful day and enjoying the summer sun! Here is a quick little DIY on how to change the undertone of your foundation using food coloring. This is such a quick, inexpensive, and easy way to adjust your foundation to your exact skin tone! Whether you just got a new spray tan, recently got sunburned, or maybe just bought a foundation in a shade that was just ever so slightly off; don’t you worry!

WHAT YOU’ll NEED: 

  • A small container
  • The foundation you want to adjust
  • Food coloring (blue, yellow, green and red)
  • A mixing tool


What to do: I LOVE using this method because it’s SO simple to do once you know how!  All you need to do is figure out your undertone – then little by little, add the food coloring to your foundation until you’ve reached your desired shade. Keep in mind that food coloring is VERY pigmented and a little goes a long way. You can also easily stain your skin – so PLEASE please please do not apply the dye directly to your face. I like to lightly dip the end of a brush (non fluffy side) into the dye and then mix it little by little into my container of foundation. 

Note: I highly recommend testing the foundation on a small area on your arm or leg before applying to your face! JUST in case you may have any unknown allergies to the dye! 


What I used:

 I have a VERY yellow/green undertone and because of self tanning – my yellow tones become even more prevalent! So for my specific mixture – I used around 8-10 pumps of foundation to one drop of yellow food coloring. I highly recommend using a separate container to mix your foundation and coloring. That way, if something goes terribly wrong, you’re not left with a big bottle of awful colored foundation 😅 


 On the top of my arm, you can see the original foundation has a pinky undertone, while on the bottom you can see that the foundation now has a very yellow undertone! 

How do I know what my undertone is?:

Here is a GREAT chart to help in finding your undertone

I found this chart on Pinterest and it is a great way to quickly figure out what your undertone is! (All credit goes to it’s original owner – but I could not find an original source link! Sorry! 😞) Here is the link for Pinterest: https://goo.gl/images/JhYiM1

How do I know which colors to add?:

 

Now that you know your undertone: It’s just a matter of finding which colors will bring your foundation nearer to your skins natural shade! Above is a little chart I made to hopefully help you in finding your specific color adjustments for your specific foundation! If you use both the skin chart, as well as the color chart! You’ll be mixing and matching foundations like nobody’s business in no time!
