Colour Collection's Hot Summer Hues

What do you look for in a lipstick? 

Me, I look at the shade first. Is it wearable and flattering? I gravitate towards nudes, my-lips-but-better pinks, dark berries, and brownish shades. I stay away from shades that are too coral, peach or orange because they tend to gray me out.

Next thing I look at is the pigmentation. Is it sheer or opaque or somewhere in the middle? I'm not a big fan of sheers because I have unevenly-colored and pigmented lips. I want something that can really cover. Same reason why I don't like lip stains. 

After that I look at the finish. Is it matte, satin, moisturizing or frosty? I, for one, prefer mattes and satins over glossy and frosty. Frosty shades tend to make lip chapping more obvious, and glossy/moisturizing ones don't usually stay on for long. Matte shades are generally more transfer-proof and long-wearing. But while matte shades are indeed longer-wearing, they also tend to be more drying on the lips.

Satins and 'creamy mattes' and anything similar are my current favorite types. They provide just the right amount of shine, glide on smoothly on the lips, and have decent wear time. 

The Colour Collection Ultimate Wear lipsticks are both pigmented and long-wearing, and the finish is great too. Been reaching out for them a lot lately!


I've talked about these lipsticks before in my post *here.* Like I said in that post, I thought these lipsticks were pretty sheer at first upon swatching on the back of my hand. On my lips, though, they showed up pretty well! Been liking them since. And the slim packaging makes them easy to carry around in my makeup bag.

Colour Collection Ultimate Wear Lipsticks (5 newest shades)
L-R: Angelic, Headturner, Bellissima, Queen Bee, Temptress
There are eight classic shades, ranging from neutrals to bright pinks to dark berries. And recently, five new shades have been released, just in time for summer.

#ColourCollectionHotHues

I'll tell you more about these in another post, but I'll tell you this now - these lipsticks are pigmented and long-wearing! These, especially the darker shades, can stay on my lips even after eating and drinking (even after eating ice cream, I swear!). The thing about these is that they leave your lips stained somehow, so the colors don't fade too easily. And the finish is just right for my liking.

Here are the swatches of all the Colour Collection Ultimate Wear lipsticks that I have. I have 10 out of the 13 available so far.

L-R: Naked Peach, Love Me, Angelic, Kiss & Tell, Headturner, Plum Promise, Bellissima, Hot Summer, Queen Bee, Temptress

What do you think? Any of these shades interest you? Yes? Then it's your lucky day because full-sized tubes of the five newest shades are still available at Sample Room last time I checked! And for only 95 points each, so they're non-VIP-friendly. Hurry, there are only a few stocks left!

My current faves are Plum Promise, Angelic and Temptress. Have you tried these yet? Hope you're liking them as well :)

    i'm not really a lippie kind of girl... i could go out of the house with just my bare lips or a lip balm with sunscreen...but on special occasions, and some days where i feel a bit girly, i love to wear plummy pinks... i find that it suits me... i have the Colour Collection in Head Turner and i really love how it looks on me... i also love deep dark berry shades... they just look so vampy... i would love to try Colour Collection's deeper shades too!

    My favorite shade of lipstick looks a lot like colour collections's angelic. This shade looks light on the lips. Just dab it on your lips and spread it using a lip brush (you can also use your finger) to achieve the MLBB (my lips but better) effect. This shade is perfect for daily use in school or at work if you're after a natural/no-makeup makeup look.

    I love reds and plums the most. But there are days that I need my nudes too.

    For reds and plums, I love them because they just brighten my face a lot with just a swipe. No more extra effort needed. For nudes, I just want to even out my lips but not too noticeable. :)

    Based form the photos you have shared my favorite would be Bellissima. It suits my personality, it's simple and natural. It's not too mugh for a daily use and not too little too. I like lipstick that looks natural on me. And I am waiting for the delivery of my purchase in Sampleroom. I ordered this shade because I really fell inlove the first time I laid my eyes on it. :)
