A dose of purple

Hey diamonds
So we all know my love for supporting indie-brand cosmetic companies. By indie (independent) I mean not your high retail brands like MAC or WET N WILD. No I mean brands started by people like me and you, lovers of beauty, and cosmetics, that take a leap of faith to go on what they love and create something to share with the world, (probably starting in their own home).

I first learned about DOSE OF COLORS on Instagram. After hears about them and seeing swatches I knew I needed to check them out for myself! And boy am I glad I did. The pictures in the site show promising colors but I was still a little skeptical, and with hesitation mixed with excitement I ordered... The purples only of course!!

Firstly, shipping was super quick, received my package in 4 days, and the packaging was so cute!
I am not one for keeping product boxes, but I am keeping these, the detail is just so girly and so me!!!

The lipglosses are a decent size and you can clearly see the product, color, and amount available,  The lipstick container reminds me of NYX cosmetics lippies with the colored bottom and only slightly taller. 

The colors are bright, and deliciously opaque. They are not sticky at all which is a bonus! The wear is good about 3-4 hours with a touch up needed after eating it drinking. They do leave a
Slight Fuschia-ish stain which is great if you like lip stains (I don't). 



Toxic super deep plum color. It took one coat to get this! Talk about pigmentation!!! What you see in the tube is what you get!!! 
    Purple fusion is a gorgeous vibrant grape. Again the color in the tube is the color on your lips! 

As a woman of color it can be tricky for colors to look the way they do in the container on me, especially with the top lip being darker than the bottom. But I had no problem with these glosses!! 

* no swatch of the lipstick since I blessed a friend with it for her birthday!*
