Review: Colour Her by Emmy Engberts

The Rainbow Collection, an LGBTQ+ pride flag themed makeup line, brings two unlikely girls together.


Amber runs a semi-popular makeup channel. It combines the two things she loves best, makeup and sharing her passion. While talking face-to-face with people scares her, talking to a camera is much easier, it feels safer. That distance between herself and the people who watch her videos has always been right for her, until she meets a girl who makes her rethink that position.

Mya is a girl of many interests, from gaming to anime and manga to makeup and clothes, she loves it all. What she likes even more is to surround herself with people who enjoy similar things.

She’s good at talking to people, she loves it even. That’s why she’s training to become a primary school teacher, but there’s one problem, she hasn’t been able to pass her maths exam yet and if she fails it one more time she’ll have to drop out.

The two very different girls share one passion, makeup, and Mya has been a fan of Amber’s channel for years, a big fan. What starts as an unexpected chat in a store, followed by an anonymous gift from Mya, turns much more complicated when Amber might be the only one able to help Mya pass her maths exam.

Amber has no idea Mya sent her the makeup, and Mya doesn’t know how to tell Amber without ruining everything, breaking the fragile trust between them.5

Emmy Engberts writes sweet romances that you can read over and over again and Colour Her is no different.

Colour is the third book in the “Flowers and Keyboards” series and tells Mya’s story, Elliot’s best friend. I have to say I had no clue that Mya could be shy (laugh). It was such a delight to see this side of her.

Mya and Amber’s story is awkward, funny, and to reuse the word again: sweet. You will learn a lot about vlogging and makeup then you will ever want to know (laugh). Engberts is the expert on research. 

Engberts is also awesome at giving readers real characters who just happen to fall in love. 

I received an ARC of this book and I am writing a review without prejudice and voluntarily.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
