Sample Room: Colour Collection Lip Perfection Lipstick Review

If you are an avid reader of my blog, you might have already read my review on my first Colour Collection lipstick which I got from the Sample Room website: the Colour Collection Vitamin E Sheer Lipstick in Pinkish Nude. I like it so much that I got so excited when Sample Room released new full-sized lipstick samples from the same brand: the Colour Collection Lip Perfection Lipsticks. Three shades were available in the said website. I chose to get the Colour Collection Lip Perfection Lipstick in Bella.

I actually like the white packaging of this lipstick. It veers away from the usual black-colored packaging making it really unique yet it still looks classy. 😀

This is an interesting product because this is the first lip makeup that I have that has a mirror and lights included in it. Cool, isn’t it?

Review: Avon Ultra Color Lipstick

If I am going to buy a lipstick, I always look for light or nude colors that are wearable during the day. I don’t really pick bold lip colors because they might not look good on me.

Apparently, BDJ Box gives me the chance to play and experiment by giving me Avon lipsticks that have intense, colorful shades. Haha!

Product Description (taken from the Avon website):

Vivid, luminous stay-true color feels so luscious on lips, you may never switch. Moisturizing and conditioning formula with Shea Butter, Artic Berry and Vitamin E for an exquisite soft, supple feel. SPF15

If you keep a lot of lipstick tubes, it will be helpful if you can see the actual shade of the lipstick without having to remove its cover, just like those of Avon Ultra Color Lipsticks. 😀

I like that this lipstick is very pigmented that one swipe could already give you a rich, colorful swatch. Also, this has SPF15. You get a nice lip color and, at the same time, your lips are protected from the sun. The best thing about this product is that I didn’t get chapped lips even if I did not use a lip balm. However, this is not long-wearing so there is a need to reapply particularly after eating or drinking.

Review: FS Cosmetics Moisturific Moisture-Rich Lipstick

I hate chapped lips. I hate it when I get dry patches of skin on my lips. You cannot seem to perfect putting on lip color when your lips are dry. Another thing is that some lip products tend to make the lips even drier. Thus, worsening the chapped lips situation… But, how about those who are lipstick lovers yet their lips get dry easily? I suggest that you use lipsticks that have a moisturizing ingredient in them. Just like the FS Cosmetics Moisturific Moisture-Rich Lipstick… 😀

Product Description (taken from the FS Cosmetics website):

Glamorous, moisture-rich lipstick with Aloe-Vera, 
Vitamin E and Jojoba oil extracts. Deeply Nourishing. 
Terrifically moisturizing.

I got the shade Pink Chic. However, the color is not really a shade of pink. It is more of a coral shade. Nevertheless, I still like the shade because it is apt for daily use particularly for a day makeup.

I like using this lipstick because it does not dry my lips. I don’t have to use a lip balm prior to using this lipstick. It has a rich, colorful pigment that stays longer as compared to other moisturizing lipsticks that I have tried.

I initially got attracted to this product because of the packaging. I know it just looks simple but it also looks really chic and super classy. It seems like it is from a high-end brand. 😉

I like that this powder has SPF20 and PA++. Considering the hot weather that we currently have, it is important to use products that can protect our skin from the sun. Also, this powder smells good! 😀

In my case, I did not get the eight hours of perfect makeup because after four hours, I already get oily. Though, I just need to blot the oil off my face and my makeup looks perfect again. 😀

I also like that this powder does not get powdery at all (if you get what I mean… Haha! 😛 ). Even if you swirl your powder brush several times on the powder pan, you won’t get particles falling off from the compact.

I super like this powder because it can give a really smooth and nice finish to your makeup. Somewhat close to poreless perfection… 😉 It can be used alone or as a finishing powder. It can give a light to medium coverage. It can blur out skin imperfections but not totally cover them up. In that case, you might still need the help of a concealer or a liquid foundation.

The Pixy Blush On in Passion Roses has a subtle light pink color that could give a natural rosy blush on your cheeks. This blush has a very, very, very small amount of shimmer in it which makes it close to having a matte finish.
