Colour Theory recently sent me a selection of their products for trial and review purposes.
The products I received to have a play with were:
- Colour Theory Nail Polish $4 in Va Va Voom Pink
- Colour Theory Lipstick $6 in Mystique
- Colour Theory Lip Liner $6 in Wine and Dine
- Colour Theory Blush $6 in Guilty
- Colour Theory Eye Shadow Duo $6 in Berrylicious
- Colour Theory Mascara Lengthen $8 in Black
To be honest, I was quite shocked when I discovered how reasonable the prices for Colour Theory are. Prices start at $4 with nothing over $10. I know right?!

This super pretty frock needed a super pretty look. The subtle cheek lets a smokey berry eye, with luscious lashes, and bold berry lip take centre stage.
I’m obsessed by lashes, and for $8, I’ll be adding to cart for the mascara. Two-three coats worked best, I found.
The Eye Shadow Duo in Berrylicious had a sheen without being too shimmery, blended well and was long lasting.
If you’re a bit heavy handed with your blush application, then you might like the Colour Theory Blush. I found it wasn’t strongly pigmented, with the benefit that it was able to be layered to achieve the desired colour payoff.
I was rather impressed with the lipstick. I found it easy to apply, wore off relatively evenly and was comfortable on my lips. It was neither too glossy nor too matte.
I am just in love with the Colour Theory lip liner. It is hands down my favourite product from the selection I trialled.
It’s creamy, long lasting and not drying. For $6, it out performs some rather exy brands in my makeup collection.
In the Boohoo Spring Racing Style images, I’ve layered the Wine and Dine shade under the Berrylicious lipstick. In the above image, I’ve layered a very pale pink lipgloss over the Wine and Dine lip liner for a pretty pink look.
Using the Berrylicious Eyeshadow Duo, I’ve concentrated the darker shade more intensely along the lashline for a different take on a berry eye look too.
I found the Colour Theory nail polish easy to apply, with a decent brush. I didn’t find it particularly long lasting, but I consider four days without major chipping to be long lasting, so I’m not the best judge. It definitely required two coats, but the colour payoff was fabulous. Well worth trying for a $4 investment.
Have you tried Colour Theory Cosmetics? Yay or nay?
