There's something special about collaborations between big brands and people we can, you know, actually relate to. That's why I'm super excited about Lumiere 2, the latest collaboration between KathleenLights and ColourPop. "Lumière 2" is totally affordable, and the muted mauve shade is sure to be flattering across all skin types. So buy it. I won't judge, because it's sitting in my own ever-expanding ColourPop shopping cart right this very moment.
If you're a beauty junkie feeding your addiction on a shoestring budget, ColourPop x KathleenLights could be your favorite product lineup this year. ColourPop's low price point and eclectic color lineup make it the ideal line for trying out crazy colors and finishes, and the products are totally awesome. Right now you can pick up "Lumiere 2" for only $6, people. It's so cheap you may as well buy a few more, like my personal fave, "Feminist" (of course). Also, ColourPop offers free shipping in the continental US for orders over $30, so at that point you may as well buy five shades, right?
Longtime followers of KathleenLights know that this isn't the first collab under this beauty blogger's belt. In addition to her previous work with ColourPop, KathleenLights worked in conjunction with OFRA Cosmetics to release "Miami Fever", a rust red liquid lipstick that's earned over 13,000 reviews on YouTube alone. If you're jiving with this beauty blogger's taste and want to see more, stay tuned for a rundown of all her product collabs so far.

In KathleenLight's announcement video, she notes formulation constraints prevented "Lumière 2" from matching the original "Lumière" perfectly, but I'm not complaining: this shade is gorgeous.

Although this product is at a higher price point than the rest of KathleenLights' collaborations, that dusty red shade is to die for — and well worth it, according to the reviews.
