Collection Deluxe Lipsticks are five tone match nude colours and I am not sure quite whether Collection were aiming for a low pigment, but that’s what they are and all the better for it in my view. Not everyone is up for a very strong lip look – especially if you are going with a strong eye – so whether by accident or by design, these fit beautifully into a low-key lip look with a slick of sheen and a very comfortable texture.
They’re more of a wearable sheen than a statement which quite honestly is a bit of a welcome relief from high impact, dry as a bone formulas. I didn’t find the last amazing but these are £3.99 a pop which is very reasonable so maybe a bit of touching up is expected. Collection is falling a bit behind on other budget brands who are knocking it out of the park with formulas – I think the brand needs a bit of a rethink on upping their game. Budget brands are really starting to impact on luxury because they’re finding ways to produce great quality, high pigment and long last. I do like the Collection Deluxe Lipsticks for being on the right track as far as less is more, for taking the torture out of tone matching and being a very easy wear, but you know.. come on guys – time to step it up a level.
Shades in the swatch above are (from bottom to top): Sundance, Liberty, Chicago, Babydoll and Bonnie and there are ten shades in total, HERE.
