Dose of Colors Lipstick Review

A few weeks ago I ordered two lipsticks from Dose of Colors. I have seen these babies all over my Instagram timeline and the colors seemed so vibrate and fun that, naturally, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them. I picked up the colors Love Potion (right) and Play Date (left).

Dose of Colors

First off, let’s talk about the packaging. I love that they went with white instead of the typical black that we see a lot of cosmetic companies use these days. It’s clean, the logo is nice and fun, and the bottom also shows an accurate representation of the color which is incredibly useful. Even the outer box that the lipstick comes in is colorful and fantastic! I definitely give the packaging an A.

Dose of Colors Hearts

Dose of Colors Swatches

Swatches! I’m crushing pretty hard on Love Potion. It’s like no other color that I own. It’s a bright orchid color that leans a bit toward the purple side. Play Date is a bright coral color that’s perfect for summer. These lipsticks are incredibly long lasting and very comfortable to wear. I honestly can’t think of a single thing I don’t like about them, except maybe that they are only available online, which still isn’t really an issue for me. The shipping was fast and I received my order within 4 days of placing. Dose of Colors also has lipgloss and eyelashes that I’m hoping to try in the future when I pick up a few more lipsticks.

The lipsticks are $16 each (same as MAC) and can be purchased on the Dose of Colors website at

House of Lashes Pixie Luxe Eyelash Review

After seeing my Instagram timeline full of gorgeous lashes from House of Lashes, I finally decided to take the plunge and pick up a pair…or three! I wanted a style that I could wear every day that aren’t insanely dramatic, so I decided on the Pixie Luxe style. I ordered the 3 pack which was $30 and included shipping since shipping is free with a $25 purchase.


These lashes are such good quality! They are nice and full, but not so dramatic that I feel crazy when I wear them. They also have a really long band, so for you girls with large eyes, these are for you! I’ve never had to cut down a band to fit my eyes before, but I did have to take a bit off of these to make them fit. 



Another thing I really like about these lashes is that they have a dark band so they blend seamlessly into any eyeliner that you are wearing, or they act like liner if you are skipping some for the day. Here’s a  look that I did wearing these lashes so you can get an idea of how they look on.


 I’m really impressed with these lashes and I can definitely see myself picking up more pairs in the future. I’m dying to try out their Noir Fairy style!

You can order from House of Lashes on their website at
