Happy Tuesday! I am back with my favorite beauty item to review which is lipstick and also in a pink shade so you know it is going to be a good review and totally a Jackie thing to do. I missed writing these and if you ask me these are my favorite thing to review. I swatched all the lipsticks at the Collection counter in my local department store. I really like a lot of their products so it was time to try a lipstick as you know me and lipstick. I wasn't sure whether to get a hot pink or a lighter one but I thought I didn't have many light shades so lighter it was and I ended up with the shade Satin Bow.
The packaging is why I bought it as well because a hot pink tube. If that doesn't describe me than I don't know what does. It is pretty chubby but I don't mind that It is really cheap plastic and I had a bad experience and had to return it as the lipstick inside detached and good thing I was able to return it. I got a new one but it still isn't holding up that well. Other than that small detail the lipstick and formula make up for it.
Description from (Website): COLLECTION Volume Sensation Lipstick plumps up your pout with an array of shades. It's features are easy to use lipstick. The benefits are it plumps your pout with the vivacious COLLECTION Volume Sensation Lipstick and are available in an array of sumptuous shades that provide you with a full and fabulously flirty lip-look. The lipstick contains up to 40% of fabulous volumising ingredients to plump up your pout with one simple slick. The fabulous formula leaves lips softer, fuller and gorgeously glamorous, for a makeup look that lasts.
The Volume Sensation range contains plumping ingredients which are supposed to make your lips look fuller. I don't think it really helped me and I don't really think it would have helped me anyways since i am not really into that look and I'm not following the trend anyways.
As for swatches I would say it is a peachy nude with a pink undertone. It is more on a nude side so I went for the Satin Bow shade as it looked so different and I didn't have one like it and I decided just to get the one I don't usually go for but I knew still was in the color family I usually go for. That is how I would describe it and I was expecting it to be a little pinker which I love pink lipsticks but I actually like this shade a lot more now because it is something different and if I am not in the mood for a very pink lipstick this is a nude and can be perfect for those days. It’s a peachy nude shade, with a warm tone that's perfect for Spring and I wore it towards the end of it before summer really came.I would still use it though if I ever nee to though especially when it is sunny outside
I was looking for something creamy and it totally was. I was trying not to go for a matte shade and I'm glad this one isn't. It’s quite sheer though so if you need to you can add a few more coats. It has the most amazing taste and I love lipsticks that don't taste like plastic or chemicals and this surprisingly doesn't. Also the scent is amazing and I love sweet scents for my lipstick and the scent of this one was the scent of vanilla. The texture however feels creamy on the lips and is nice and since it is creamy I was expecting it to transfer but it didn't and stayed on. I love that it feels much more premium and high quality than you sometimes expect from a budget lipstick brand.
Overall ExperienceThis is a great lipstick and I am in love with this color. It lasts for so long and is so moisturizing. I love the texture and the long lasting formula and no transfer is the best for such a reasonable lipstick. I am really impressed with this and for the price too. Everything about it beside the packaging was great and I would love to pick up more shades and maybe find one that isn't pink next.
My rating is: ♥♥♥♥♡
I love everything about this but the only reason it gets a four heart rating is the cheap plastic packaging. I mean I love the hot pink because it is my favorite color but I had to return this as I had bought a broken one and returned it and then the second one got loose and the cap kept falling off. I really like the formula of the lipstick and the color and the color payoff but the plastic I very easily o break and I have to be really careful with it. I also don't see how it helps to be plumping but I didn't mean to buy it for that so I'm okay with it.
That was my lipstick review for the week and I really enjoyed this lipstick. It was all that I looked for and really besides the packaging. I love Collection and I have been trying a lot of their products and I love them because they are good quality and are very reasonable and it is an imported brand. Here in the Philippines it is just so expensive to buy imported beauty products but these range from 300 to 400php which for me is affordable than all the higher end ones. I hope you enjoyed this review and really liked it as I did. Let me know if you have tried this and if you would pick this up. So overall a really great product and I can't wait to get more. Hope you have a good rest of the day!
