# LaTEX - Colors in itemize

By using the command

\setlist[itemize,1]{label=\color{itemizeColor1}{$\bullet$}}


(where \itemizeColor a user defined color) I am able to set globally the color attributes of itemize and enumerate environments. This works well with

\item .......


but not with

\item [..] ....


Is it possible to define the color globally for the second case? Thanks

Use option font in \setlist to set the color for the itemize labels:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\setlist[itemize,1]{
label=$\bullet$% <- changed
\item[$\star$] second item
