Last Saturday, I was invited by one of the country's pioneer beauty bloggers and Sample Room's founder Sophie Uy to attend Colour Collection's event in partnership with Sample Room.

It was a workday for me. I had back-to-back makeup jobs that day and I squeezed in this event to my schedule because I really felt guilty for always having to say no to press event invites since the year started. And also, I miss and wanted to see my fellow beauty bloggers who share the same love I have for beauty, and of course, to support Sophie's event.

During registration, we were asked to try out and pick our favourite shade of Colour Collection Ultimate Wear Lipstick and make our mark:

Colour Collection's wide range of makeup and cosmetics

The Colour Collection Ultimate Wear Lipstick is a mainstay in the range of lipsticks that Colour Collection carries. But, for this summer season, it has come up with five new luscious shades! So to add to the sexy eight they originally have, it's now 13 shades we can choose from. I've chosen only five of my fave shades from the 13. And here's my review on them:

From L to R: Angelic, Catwalk, Queen Bee, Plum Promise and Naked Peach

Angelic: A soft rosy nude colour for everyday wear
Catwalk: A bold fuchsia perfect for night outs with the girls
Queen Bee: A bright shade of red for date nights with your beau
Plum Promise: A dark plum shade that spells power
Naked Peach: A nude peach for that au naturale look

Actual swatches from L to R: Angelic, Catwalk, Queen Bee, Plum Promise and Naked Peach

The rich, long-wearing color of this lipstick glided on smoothly, thanks to its hydrating and moisturizing formula. At the 3rd hour of wearing this, the colour barely faded away even after eating and my lips were kept plump with no sign of dryness. However, I noticed slight feathering. Aside from the vivid shades, I was very impressed with the creamy texture and balm-like finish it gave my lips. Slim and handy, its perfect for everyday use and to put on your purse with a see through window for easy identification.

These paintings were raffled at the event. Sadly, I needed to leave in the middle of the event to go to my last makeup job for the day. I didn't stand a chance to win one of these artworks!
