One of my favorite YouTubers and one of my favorite cosmetics companies have teamed up (yet again) for what I think is one of the best new collections! Kathleen Lights released her video describing her “Dream Collection” about 1 month ago, and I was so excited! Unfortunately, the first round of eyeshadow palettes sold out (everyone must have been as excited as me!) so I had to wait for round 2. Now that it’s here, I can’t stop using it!
Of course I was immediately drawn to the eyeshadows–new palettes are my weakness. What I love about this palette is that you can create a daytime look, night time look, colorful creative look, there is just so much variety! I feel like she went outside of the box with this, and I didn’t own colors like the ones in this palette. There are neutrals, highlights, pops of color, pretty much everything I am looking for! Plus, Colourpop is so affordable! The Dream St. Palette is only $16!!! That’s 12 shadows for $16…you just can’t beat it. If you haven’t tried Colourpop before, I highly recommend it. You can always get coupons ($5 off your first purchase and free shipping with $30), and their products are great quality. I own eyeshadows (pressed pots and powder pans), lip sticks, lip glosses, liquid lips, brushes, and blush from them and I have yet to be disappointed.
The quality of the shadows are great. They are blendable, pigmented, buildable, and they do not have too much fallout. I usually spray my brush with Mac Fix Plus when using metallic eyeshadows, and it makes these ones look amazing–my favorite is “Twinkle”!
Next up, the incredible lip trio Kathleen created! Once I saw her swatch these in her video, I thought they were the perfect shades. You get 2 Ultra Satin lips and 1 Ultra Glossy lip if you buy the Dream Team lip bundle for $16.50.
“Rever” is the perfect red-orange bold lip. It compliments so many skin tones! The Ultra Satin formula is one of my favorites because it is super comfortable to wear and not too drying on the lips. I’ve never tried a bold color like this before, but this one is so easy to wear! “Dreamy” is my go-to every day nudey-pink lip. I wear this one to work all the time when I want my color to stay longer than a regular lipstick, and I get compliments on it often! “Moonchild” has quickly become one of my favorite glosses that I own. It has tiny gold reflects that just make your lips look juicy, while it also has a nude undertone that matches everything. I love to put this one on top of “Dreamy” or wear it by itself! I also love that these lip colors can go with any look you create using the eyeshadow palette! With just one collection, you can create so many different eye-lip combinations.
I followed Desi Perkins’ Rose Gold New Years Eve makeup tutorial using Kathleen’s new palette and created the look above. It was so fun and easy to do this, and these are my favorite colors to wear! I absolutely love warm, rose gold tones, so I was excited to recreate her look! Next up, I want to try to do Kathleen Lights’ Matte Blue-Teal Smokey Eye look using this palette–much more out of my comfort zone, but I think it could be fun!
Overall, I love this collection! I have used the eyeshadows and all 3 lip colors multiple times now and I can easily suggest them to everyone. I’m so happy for Kathleen! If you don’t subscribe to her yet, definitely check her out. I think she did amazing on the rose gold packaging, and I love the idea of this collaboration being her “dream” makeup! Let me know what you think of these products!
