My raves about Colour Collection's Ultimate Wear Lipstick! (Review and Flash Giveaway)

#liptalktuesdays

One of the best lipsticks I have ever tried that doesn't go above the PhP 300 peso mark is Colour Collection. I am in love with their lipsticks because they are creamy, moisturizing, and the pigment is high but doesn't have that cracked look or give a splotchy finish.

Colour Collection Ultimate Wear Lipsticks, PhP 350.00/each
The Colour Collection lippies glide on like balm, has the pigment of most high-end brands, and is extremely affordable. They come up with one of the best shades too! Very wearable for Asians, and for our humid climate.

These slim lippies are the best. I love that it's not bulky to bring around and that it's just the right amount of product. Well, I change lipsticks as often as I change my underwear so I can't have a really big tube for lipsticks. So having it compact like these, I can finish it sooner. BUT these lippies still last a while because you won't be retouching as often as you would regular lipstick!


Housed in these chic, slim packaging, what's not to love? I know some women who are very into packaging (like me) and I am just loving Colour Collection's Ultimate Wear Lipstick's packaging!


These new Ultimate Wear Lipsticks shades are just to die for this summer. To tell you the truth, I rotate them. I use a different one every day regardless of what clothes I am wearing because they are so versatile!



Here are the swatches on my arm. These are 2 swipes each not because the color is not that pigmented, I swiped it twice to make a wider swatch. Which one's your fave from these swatches? I instantly fell in love with Temptress.


Here are the swatches after rubbing my arm with makeup remover! You can see that the color stuck to my arm in spite of me rubbing it with a cotton pad soaked in makeup remover. You can just imagine the staying power!

Now with that being said, I only chose one to swatch on my lips because when I attempted to remove the first swatch on my lips, there's a lit of pigment still left on my lips and it just messes with the shade of the next swatch so I didn't bother continuing. Hahaha!


And it's no surprise that it was Temptress that I swatched on my lips. You can see that the lipstick is highly pigmented. It's really more creamy that it is glossy but I had to use some lighting because I was shooting this photo at night. But if you blot this lipstick, you will be left with a highly pigmented matte version.


The look I am doing is inspired by the runway look at Old Navy's Launch Show last week. I immediately fell in love with the look: Strong, bold, and bright blue eyeliner with bright led lipstick. Never did I think I would choose these 2 colors to go together but it actually worked real well.

The look was very fun, nautical, and summer-ready!
Runway look at the Old Navy Launch Fashion Show
I just applied a thin layer of blue eyeliner on my upper lash line so that my look won't be too runway. They needed thicker lines because they will be under strong lights so just a thin line will do the trick for an everyday look.


I am loving this nautical look! Very fresh, but at the same time, FUN! It's very easy to play around and update your makeup look by adding a splash of bright color. Project using colored eyeliners this summer instead of the good ol' black eyeliner. Trust me, it will make you feel lively!


ON MY FACE: Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation, BenNye Banana Luxury Loose Powder, MAC Riri Blush Duo in Hibiscus Kiss, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Perfect Topping Powder, K-Palette Lasting 2WAY Eyebrow Pencil, Covergirl Liquiline Blast Eyeliner in Blue, Eye of Horus Mascara in Black, Colour Collection Ultimate Wear Lipstick in Temptress.


HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS:

PROS
  • Highly pigmented!
  • Can last more than 8 hours without retouching.
  • Glides on like balm.
  • Extremely moisturizing. Non-drying!
  • Shades available will suit any skin tone and color.
  • Affordable!
  • Compact.
  • Transfer proof (when blotted)
  • Fragrance-free.
  • Will look beautiful even on flaky, dry lips.
  • Mechanical tube clicks when twisted, locking the product in place as to not dispense too much product, avoiding breakage.


NEUTRAL
  • Shades change every season so these shades may not be available for the next collection.
  • Available only via direct sellers/Tupperware sellers.


CONS
  • N/A


HOW I USED IT: This is optional because it really is long lasting, but for extra insurance, blot and reapply twice. Your lipstick will last with high-pigment the whole day.



Retail Price: PhP 350.00
Purchased For: Gift from Colour Collection
Will I re-purchase? Yes.
Will I recommend it? Yes.



MY OVERALL RATING: ★★★★

    1. Ganda talaga the colors! Super wearable even the bright ones can be worn during the day! The Queen Bee lipstick is more of a deep berry in shade. It's still red but has a bluish undertone! Nice din! ♥

    1. Absolutely! Morenas are not only limited to shades that are earth toned or muted. Morenas can wear any lip color they want! You just have to find the right shade you'll be comfortable in wearing ♥
