Product Review – Colour Theory Make up

Hello Fashionistas!

As you may well know, I love make up. I own a mix of high end, and plenty of drugstore brands as well.

I was recently asked if I would be interested to review a fairly new range that is exclusive to AMCAL , AMCAL MAX and Guardian pharmacies, and I did my research.


Colour Theory is a range of cosmetics available exclusively at Amcal, Amcal Max & Guardian Pharmacies. This range that has been made by the makers of some of the world’s leading global cosmetic brands offering top quality cosmetics for Australian women at very affordable prices. Colour Theory is easy to shop with just 4 simple price points; $4, $6, $8 & $10 so you can afford to be a little bit daring …when trying out that new look or even get an extra nail polish when you simply cannot choose which colour!

And I created the following look:












So here is what I thought:

  • The lipstick is very creamy and quite pigmented.  The lipliner was a great match to the lipstick and was super smooth to apply. The colours were perfect for me, giving me a great nude colour.
  • The blush was beautifully soft and quite pigmented with a hint of shimmer.
  • The nail polish needed 2 coats but delivered a punchy colour in easy to apply lacquer and dried really fast.
  • I have mixed feelings about the eyeshadow palette: I felt the lighter colours were wishy washy, and quite grainy which left a lot of fall out in big pieces on my cheeks. The darker plums were amazing, and I decided to use these as feature colours. They were quite build able to create a good depth of colour. The lighter ones hardly showed up. I would like to see some more matte colours in these palettes, but I was happy with the darker colours.    I applied the shadow over Lime Crime Eye primer and it lasted a good 8 hours until some creasing was apparent.
  • The mascara was nice and black and separated the lashes, however the bristles on the brush were very hard and very scratchy. Didn’t feel that great on the eyelids!

So would I buy these again?


Yes, because the range is extremely affordable with over 100 products in the range there is bound to be something there you will like.    I am keen on trying the other blushes and the lipsticks too. Apart from being a little disappointed in the lighter colours of the eyeshadow palette and the very hard mascara brush, I am happy with the rest of the range.

So there you have it, could this be a range you will add to your make up bag?
