Colour Theory Nordic Light Collection Including An All New Colour Corrector

Colour Theory have just released their new autumn winter 2016 makeup collection 'Nordic Light'. Unlike most autumn winter makeup collections which usually adopt darker and richer hues, the Nordic Light collection draws inspiration from the calm, beautiful Scandinavian nights. It contains a mix of neutral soft tones and dusty rose pinks that ooze femininity. It also features some gorgeously frosted hues.

This soft colour range ties in with Pantone's 2016 Colours of the Year, a soft pastel pink 'Rose Quartz' and a pastel blue 'Serenity'. I've also seen an increase in pastel coloured home wares appearing for the autumn winter season, so these shades are obviously currently on trend!

Ice Ice Baby Eye Shadow - $10
I'm loving the frosted soft colours in this Ice Ice Baby eye shadow palette.The mauve shade instantly made my eyes pop - perfect for the shorted and darker days of autumn and winter! The darker shades create a bolder, more dramatic look for autumn and winter nights out! This actually is quite a versatile and affordable, fun palette. Although I don't know how much I'll wear the frosted blue colour I'll definitely be wearing the others this autumn and winter.

Mascara Plump - $8
This black mascara will help complete the above eye looks. I found this mascara easy to layer and it effectively increased my eyelash volume.

Colour Corrector - $10
The Colour Corrector is a great new makeup product for Colour Theory and probably my favourite product from this collection. Not only does it look pretty, it is a hard working, multi-tasking product. It is designed to prime and set makeup, and balance skin tone while controlling shine without adding any noticeable colour or texture, which is why swatches of this product were not really practicable. Simply use this colour corrector before and after applying makeup. I found it particularly useful in helping to neutralise my redness and reduce the shine around the nose area.

The orange in this colour corrector evens out skin tone and adds warmth, the pink brightens any dull spots and the green and purple help to neutralise redness and undertones.

Arctic Nude Lipsticks - $6 each
There are three lipsticks in the Colour Theory Nordic Light collection including I-See Pink, Barely There & Pure Zen.

These lipsticks feel creamy and moisturising, soft on the lips and are comfortable to wear. My favourite shade is definitely the frosty pale pink shade, I-See Pink! Just be careful when applying these lipsticks as I had the lipstick wound quite a long way out after photographing it and then applied it like that and ended up damaging it. Learn from my mistake and only wind the lipstick up a little bit when applying.

Nail Polishes - $4 each
There are four nail polishes in the Colour Theory Nordic Light collection. I received the three soft shades photographed below from left to right: Minted, Snow Bunny and Cashmere Kisses. I was surprised to learn that there is also a much darker, bolder purple colour called Apres Ski included in the collection. All Colour Theory nail polishes are fast drying and formaldehyde free and an absolute bargain, priced at $4 each!.

  17. I love the look of this collection and the name matches it so well. Still haven't had a chance to try everything but I can't wait! This collection makes me wish that I was in Iceland right now, apparently 2016 is the last chance to see the northern lights for a decade :(
