I went to the Colour Collection event a little more than a week ago to check out their latest lipstick — Colour Collection Ultimate Wear Lipstick.
I was so happy that my friend Jane was able to make it! We rarely rarely see each other because we live at the opposite ends of town.
Colour Collection Ultimate Wear Lipsticks are so pigmented you can use them to paint on a canvas just like what this artist is doing.
The effervescent Bianca Valerio hosted the event. Being a makeup artist herself, she was also the one who was going to facilitate the lipstick work shop.
She showed us different lip trends and then taught us how to get the looks.
In this segment, Bianca taught us how to achieve the Femme Fatale lip look.
Perfectly shaped red lips… this is the hardest lipstick look to achieve. I remember having to repeat it over and over and over again in makeup school. I could not go home until I got it.
The most useful lipstick application tip I learned from Bianca that day was that lipstick should be applied vertically with a brush. Yes, you paint your lips in vertical strokes so that color fills in all your lip lines resulting in the perfect pout.
So anyhow, after Bianca’s demo, we were challenged to come up with out own unique lip look using Colour Collection Ultimate Wear Lipstick. I took the brightest pink shade I could find and a red shade and then applied the shades alternately with lip brushes vertically (top to bottom) first on the upper lip then on the lower lip. It was a contest and there were going to be 5 winners.
I was one of the winners, unfortunately I didn’t bag the grand prize which was a wifi-enabled Instax camera. I did get a big bag full of Colour Collection’s bestsellers.
Colour Collection is so generous they sent me home with Ultimate Wear Lipsticks I can share with my readers! These cost P350 a pop. They certainly live up to their name because even after I had used makeup remover that night, the lip color stayed on my lips until the next morning.
There are over a dozen shades but I’m giving away 3 bestselling shades (from left to right): Bellissima, Headturner, and Naked Peach.
Congratulations Lai Gamboa! You’ve won 2 sets of Colour Collection Ultimate Wear Lipsticks!
