The latest Desi x Katy collab with Dose Of Colors is beyond beautiful! This was my first time trying the brand; after seeing the huge range of stunning looks using the Desi x Katy collection–particularly the Friendcation eyeshadow palette–I had to get my hands on it. In addition to the palette, I picked two highlighters, a matte liquid lip and a lip gloss.
I am so thrilled with the full-face look I was able to create with the products I picked, and can’t wait to continue experimenting with everything.
Although I went with a bold eye (I couldn’t resist the one-of-a-kind metallic blue shadow called A Moment), the matte shades make the Friendcation palette oh-so versatile. Plus, Just A Kiss is a jaw-dropping universal brow-bone/inner-corner highlight for any eye look!
To create the look, I started with Basic on a fluffy blending brush all over the lid, then added Necessary to my crease. I blended Necessary a ton for a blown-out, cat-eye effect. Then, went in with A Moment using my ring finger; it took approximately two layers to get the intense color payoff. For a seamless transition from Necessary to A Moment, I blended around the edges with the same fluffy blending brush.
There was quite a bit of fallout with the shades I used, but it didn’t bother me at all. The shadows are still super high-quality, so as long as I finish my eyes before I start my skin, it is easy enough to wipe the fallout away.
A flashy highlight is a must, especially with this eye look. I used Chasing The Sun (the beautiful bronze shade) on a fluffy fan brush for an all-over highlight on top of my bronzer (Fenty Match Stix in Mocha), then took Fuego (the pale gold shade) on a setting brush and added it to the tops of my cheekbones and to my cupid’s bow. Fuego is really versatile, so I also used it on my eyes as a brow-bone and inner-corner highlight before layering Just A Kiss on top. All of these shades give my skin the ultra-wet highlight that I crave.
Polishing off the eyes was quick and easy with a classic black mascara and Glossier Boy Brow in Brown. I sealed everything in with MAC Cosmetics’ Fix+ Shimmer in Goldlite.
Pat McGrath’s Permagel Ultra Lip Pencil in Contour has been my go-to base for nearly ever lipstick/gloss, so I applied it to the top and bottom, then added My Main on top. I was instantly blown away by how comfortable, easy to apply and pigmented this liquid lipstick is! Normally, I stay away from liquid lipsticks because they can be difficult to work with and go on patchy, but I didn’t experience any of that with Dose Of Colors’ formula whatsoever. Over The Top has a clear, shiny base with golden sparkles throughout, which is the perfect finishing touch for this glow-y look!
