Product Review: Colour Collection Vitamin E Matte Lipstick in Electra

Thursday, October 03, 2013

     Here's a review of my very first red lipstick. Red, huh?! Not all girls can pull off red shades of lipstick decently. Some may find the shade sophisticated and Elegant while others may find the shade bitchy, sluty or matronish. Picking the right shade of red to suit ones skin tone is very tricky. If you can sport red lippie anywhere and anytime then lucky you! You'll see the Anne Curtis Smith in you who can wear red lipstick in all seasons! I'm also a late bloomer when it comes to lipsticks. I started using them on a regular basis some two years ago. I was scared before to apply bold colored lippie since I have a pigmented lips. I know that opaque and bold ones will look more intense when worn knowing that I have a pigmented lips. 

     Before I decided to try a red shade lipstick, I search for dupes of the infamous MAC Russian Red and Ruby Woo. I didn't found a dupe that I based from the photos of Temptalia. By the way, she is a famous international beauty blogger. So my search for the perfect red lipstick was set aside when my cousin from the US bought me MAC Girl About Town- a blue based pink lipstick and instantly fell in love with the color.

     Even though most of my lipsticks are pinks, I still want to try red just to see if I can wear it without looking like joker or a clown as what le hubby always jokes about. So when my sister-in-law gave me the brochure of Tupperware Brands, the distributor of Colour Collection makeup, and told me that she wanted to give me a thank you gift I didn't think twice and chose this shade. Wanna see if the lipsticks suits me? I wanna faint the first time I applied the lipstick but after three tries, I think I'm getting used to it. So here it is, Colour Collection lipstick in Electra.
Colour Collection Vitamin E Matte Lipstick in Electra
A luxurious matte lipstick that wraps lips with conditioning color, infused with Vitamin E and protective sunscreen to soften lips, smoothen lines and prevent chapping.

The gold accent on the packaging makes the lipstick looks a bit expensive.

Swatch lightly on my forearm.

On my lips, applied twice without a lip liner. It bleeds and smudges without a lip liner and pardon my messy application. I had a hard time applying this shade or Am I nervous because it's my first time to wear a red shade of lippy? Haha!

Colour Collection Vitamin E Matte Lipstick in Electra

What I like: 
  • Affordable specially when products are on Sale!
  • The packaging is simple and the gold accent adds a touch of class to it.
  • It's really pigmented, goes opaque on my lips.
  • It's matte, no shine or shimmer at all.
  • The texture is creamy and applies smoothly on my lips. 
  • The scent- sweet but not overpowering. 
  • Lasts for 4 hours on my lips. 
  • Easy to remove.
  • Brightens my pale face.
  • There's a wide range of color to choose from.
  • There's a batch and manufacturing date printed on it. 
What I don't like: 
  • Color rubs off after eating greasy food or sipping any drink and fades unevenly.
  • Needs a lip liner for a decent application and also to prevent it from bleeding.
  • Made my lips dry and flaking even if I used my trusty lip balm.
  • Not easily accessible.
Will I repurchase? Yes, I'll repurchase other shades of pinks and purples.

     I give this a 4/5 rating! It's affordable and performs like the lippies of imported drugstore brands available in department stores. If you're planning to use this shade from Colour Collection, prep you lips with your fave lip balm. Blot excess and line your lips using  a lip liner then apply the lipstick. You can also use your lipstick brush for a more precise application. Will add photos of moi wearing this lipstick this weekend. Hope you can comment below if the shade is a Yay or a Nay :)

     What's your favorite Colour Collection lipstick shade? Thanks for sharing!
