Fave Inexpensive Pink Lippie

The problem about me being a makeup addict is the fact that I never get to finish up any makeup item. This is because I always find myself buying the next blush, lippie, or foundation that would pique my interest and of course, would fit my budget. It is therefore, to my amazement, that I am now almost done with a certain tube of lippie that has unexpectedly become my favorite. During my blog hiatus, I had become addicted to MAC lippies but when I got bored with them, I let go of them. The lipstick I am featuring in this blog entry, I can say, is as great and as moisturizing as the more expensive brands that I have tried.
Behold Colour Collection’s Skin Care Series Moisture Intense Lipstick in Sheer Pink Pearl. This is my most often used lippie these days. Why? Because the shade is uber flattering on me and I find it very moisturizing. It does not dry my lips and has a slight sheen finish.
I have always been partial to pink shades because I think they make me look younger. I like how pink this shade is. Not too pale and not too bright either. The shade is also buildable which is a plus factor for me since I also have those days when I don’t want to call attention to myself. It does not have any overbearing scent too. I liked this lippie so much that I bought two back ups of this when this line was still on sale. I also got another shade, Sheer Dainty Peach, as an alternative shade to this. Its retail price is I think just around Php 350-400. I got this on sale at Php 275. By the way, Colour Collection cosmetics may be purchased through Tupperware agents / personal sellers.
Staying power is okay. It stays on my lips for more than four (4) hours but then again that might just be because I don't have that habit of always licking my lips. This is not much of a deal for me though because I always retouch regardless of the brand.
I am glad that Colour Collection has stepped up on its makeup lines. In fact, I like their lippies better than that of other brands in its price category. Another lippie of this brand that I like is the Vintage matte lippie which was hyped to be the lippie Bea Alonzo wore in “Magkaribal.” Personally, I think the shade is not the same one but that’s just my opinion. In the next pic, I am wearing Sheer Pink Pearl topped with Vintage. The latter is matte so I often apply something to my lips first before I apply it.
What’s your favorite inexpensive pink lippie?

Helo Hercy! They're sold by Tupperware dealers. Colour Collection is the makeup line under Tupperware along with other brands such as Hanes, etc. You might want to google more about them. They also have several celebrities as endorsers like Bea A., KC Concepcion and the like hehe :P It's a direct selling co. just like Avon :P
