We sure have been seeing a ton of repeat collabs, and there are many more coming in the future. This time it’s Dose of Colors doing another collab with Katy X Desi Perkins on Monday, 9.24! This new collab collection for 2018 includes the Friendcation Eyeshadow Palette ($55) with 10 shades, two Lip Glosses ($17 each), two Velvet Mattes ($18 each), two Matte Lipsticks ($16 each) and two Highlighters ($28 each).
This is soooooo just not exciting at all for me. SORRY! But I just think collabs should really, in most cases, be limited to a one time thing. After the first time, the hype is kinda of gone. It’s no longer novel. And just because it probably sold super well the first time doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s going to again, ya know? It’s just kinda tired and boring the second time around. You know how the sequel to a move is RARELY aka NEVER anywhere near as good as the first one??
Collabs kind of follow that same game… except maybe Kathleen and Colourpop, we really don’t mind those… But ANYWAY! The products in the collections aren’t all that thrilling either. Other than the shimmering, gorgeous, stunning royal blue, the palette is super neutral and something we likely can do without in our collection. The highlighters are also the same shades that we all likely have like, 4 of at this point. I do really like the DOC lip formulas, so those may be worth checking out. But overall, we aren’t really eyeing this collection this time around.
