Colour Collection Vitamin E Lipsticks are housed in these classic gold and black tubes. They’re nice and all but what concerns me is the plastic tube for they don’t appear to be very durable. Plus the overall packaging is quite bulky for my preference. I think I would’ve been better if they made it the tubes slimmer just so they’d me more travel-friendly. Each lipstick have their shade names printed on a sticker at the bottom of the tube like most lipsticks. Although I wish they could’ve made the font bigger or bolder to make it easier to read.
Well, those are just a couple of minor personal suggestions regarding the packaging. Nothing too serious that would stop me from using these. With all honesty, I think Colour Collection Vitamin E Lipsticks are great! You’ll have to read on to know more of course. 🙂
Let’s start with my current everyday lipstick, Pinkish Nude (Sheer).
Contrary to its name, Pinkish Nude, I think it is more of a muted coral shade that translates to a nice, very natural “my lips only better” shade when worn. Given that it has a sheer finish, it doesn’t offer much pigmentation, just enough to even out the lip color. If you have dark lip lines like me and doesn’t want to wear bold lip colors for everyday use, this could be your best bet.
Granted that Kissmark has a matte finish, it is expected that it is not as soft and creamy as the other two but with way better wear time of 4-5 hours. It’s not as moisturizing too. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not drying at any rate; just not moisturizing. A lip balm prior application is still a must with Kissmark. Plus side is that it offers way more color payoff with an added lovely stain afterwards. I love the opacity and how buildable the color is. Although it has a tendency of accentuating extremely dry, cracked lips. Don’t forget to exfoliate those smackers for a flawless look! 😀

Now, Red Wine is an old fashioned brick red shade from the bullet but once swatched, it becomes this gorgeous warm deep red shade that’s very strong yet easy to pull off. It isn’t intimidating at all! If you’re new to red lipsticks, you might want to ease up with this shade first. It goes well with everything – I imagine it can complement any skin tone and it even makes my teeth appear whiter. I look so grown up and sophisticated with my Red Wine on. 😉
Like Pinkish Nude, this is also creamy and it easily glides on the lips but it has less shine and more color. I can’t stress how much I love how buildable the color is. Plus it gives my lips a healthy sheen to it without looking like a slabbed on truck loads of gloss. Wear time is around 3-4 hours and it’s totally moisturizing to the lips! <3
