Review: Colour Collection Matte Edition

Wednesday, August 03, 2011

Please check out our giveaway here!


I am so much into lipsticks these past few days. I actually got 4 lipsticks in one go because it's on sale. Can you blame me? Haha! If I am not mistaken, I ordered about 7 different shades from this line but apparently, I only got 2 shades. I initially didn't mind it, but when I found out that this lipstick works, I had the biggest disappointment. That moment was if I met the man of my dream minutes after he got married. *That is way too mushy!*

Colour Collection may be sporting a new packaging so they had their old ones on sale. I am still hoping that these entire line will be out on their latest brochure.
 
Simple yet elegant packaging, right? I got these two for only Php119.00 for 4 grams each. Steal! I chose the shades Scarlet and Diva because they were shouting BOLD! I am so much into bold lips on an everyday basis just because I don't have enough time to apply eye make-up. See how bold these two are.

As usual, the ones on the brochure look different from the ones in actual. 
Scarlet and Vixen

Scarlet: It the brochure it is more on the red tone. It is pink in actual. I was expecting the turn out to be redder as the name implies. See the swatches on the left side.

Vixen: This was the first one that caught my attention. Its vampire-lips appearance is perfect for the looks I am thinking of. I expected it to be more on the violet side but the maroon outcome still fascinates me. Swatches are on the right side.

Colour Collection says:
Feel the smooth, rich color glide along your lips with this matte lipstick that gives you all the color without the shine. Enriched with Vitamin E and sunscreen for nourished and protected lips.
To use: Apply color. Wait for five minutes for color to set.
Caution: Oily food will rub off color.


What I like about it:
  •  Inexpensive -- I would not have gotten too many lipsticks in one go if these are priced regularly. Got these for only Php119.00 each.
  • Great pigmentation -- Photos below are only done with one swipe.
VIXEN

SCARLET
  • Moisturizing for a matte lipstick
  • Has sunscreen and Vitamin E
  • Easy to apply
  • Stays on for 4 hours
  • Simple yet elegant packaging
  • No allergic reactions
  • No weird and annoying smell

What I don't like about it:
  • Available in limited shades because these were on sale
  • Available only through Tupperware dealers

Will I repurchase?
YES! Please let this line be still in the latest brochure. I won't mind the change in packaging.

Notes:
  1. Matte lipsticks can be drying so using of lipbalm prior to lipstick application can sometimes be a must.
  2. To make the color last a little longer, blot lipstick on a clean tissue paper. Reapply another coat on top.
  3. Lining the lips may also help in making the color last.
  4. Bold lips look perfect with subtle eye make-up.
  5. I could help you get in touch with a Tupperware dealer in case you are interested in getting some of the products. Just send me an email. :)

I am thinking of subjecting myself under shopping ban since my final demonstration is only weeks from now. But I just can't resist sales. Oh please help me divert my attention to other things that need I not to spend money on. Haha! :)  

Till next lipstick review!
