I’ve been seeing Colourette Cosmetics a lot on my newsfeed these past few months, so I didn’t pass up on the opportunity to purchase one of their lippies when I went on a mini shopping spree on Lazada. The Colourette Lipstick in Sahara was priced at Php 550 when I purchased it, and I’ve had a couple (maybe 2-3) months to test it out and see if it proves to be a keeper.
Packaging: The lippie came in a thin, black box, properly labeled with the shade of the lipstick at the bottom of the box. The box was tightly wrapped in plastic packaging to prevent tampering. The product itself was stored in a black lipstick tube with the logo on one side, and the name of the shade at the bottom.
The cap isn’t as tightly locked in as would be expected of lipsticks, but it managed to stay in place inside the black hole that is my bag. The tube is a twist-up tube, and is easy to use.
One of the things that I first noticed about the lipstick is the scent of wax. It was apparent especially upon use, but it doesn’t bother me enough to get me to stop using it. Its consistency and pigmentation is also remarkable. One swipe is enough for a pop of color on your pout.
Ingredients: Colourette Cosmetics pride itself as a multi-functional lip lacquer. It’s infused with a range of nourishing ingredients, such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Avocado oil, and Grapeseed oil. This could explain why it’s so creamy and glides smoothly on the lips! It’s also likely that its very natural shimmer can be attributed to its oil content.
Shade: I really liked the Sahara shade. It has a rosy brown color that would suit any skin tone. For a while, this lippie was my go-to lipstick for work, especially because it’s so easy to apply. It’s also one of their more popular shade, thanks to Instagram celebrity Lily MayMac.
Lasting power: The lasting power of the Colourette lipstick ranges from two to four hours, depending on your activity. It wears out after eating, so you might want to consider retouching after.
Price: Php 525
Would I repurchase: Definitely! I love this shade a lot. It’s earned its rightful place in my makeup stash. I would be interested to try out Colourette’s other darker shades, too!
