Last March, I was invited by Sample Room for their tie up event with Colour Collection called Hot Hues. It was held at Oz Bar, Holiday Inn.
This was an event I couldn't pass on. We were given a clue that it would involve lipsticks and boy, oh, boy! There were a lot of lipsticks!
I arrived a bit late than the call time but it didn't start right away so I still arrived early. Char, Jes, and Donna weren't there yet as we call came from makeup gigs. When I got to Oz Bar, I was greeted by Sophie as she was near the entrance. On the side was the registration booth. We were given cards where we have to choose a lipstick and put our kissmark there. I don't remember the shade of the lipstick that I picked but it was in the Nude range. Then I placed it on the board of kissmarks.
My kiss mark wasn't exactly in the middle but oh well.

I wanted to take home these palettes! So pigmented!
And of course, the hotness that is Bianca Valerio!
Bianca discussed and demonstrated how we could use Colour Collection's lipsticks. There were models that went around for us to see how the lip colour suits them/their skin.
A beautiful mess.
Colour Collection released 5 new shades for their Ultimate Wear Lipstick line! What I love about this lipstick is that it's rather different from the usual lipstick as it's slim. The tube is clear in the middle allowing you to know spot on the shade of the lipstick without opening it. These lipsticks are pigmented and stay long on your lips. And when I say long, I mean long enough to stay until morning. Yes, that's right. My lipstick was still intact even after I ate dinner. I didn't remove my lipstick on purpose because I wanted to see if it would fade while I sleep (it happens to some lipsticks). I was so surprised to see that my lipstick was still intact and din't fade when I woke up. Talk about being made up in the morning. LOL.
I have two favourites and I can not choose one over the other, haha! How low is my EQ?! My favourites are Queen Bee and Angelic. I just love how it looks on my lips!
There was also a game on coming up with the most creative lip look! I had a hard time coming up with a creative look for my lips because I can't perfect them ombre lips to save my life! And thrush be told, I don't really like combining lip colours all the time. Since we were pressed for time, I ended up combining four shades and tried to achieve ombre lips. I wanted to win the prizes to bad! I didn't win though =)
Bianca Valerio also announced the release of her new makeup collection from Colour Collection. I'm already in love with the white packaging! So, ladies, reviews are in order for her new lipsticks and blush duo!
Before the event ended, Colour Collection was generous to give us loot bags full of lipsticks. What's crazier though was when they announced that we could take home all the makeup on the tables! Everyone went gaga and grabbed the lipsticks and palettes all at once. It was fun and crazy!
I'm so happy to be part of Sample Room family! Their events are always full of fun and makeup!
Let me know if you've tried Colour Collection's Ultimate Wear lipsticks or any of their products! I'd love to know your thoughts!
