When I was younger, one of our neighbors would sometimes come to our house and bring a brochure of storage products — Tupperware to be exact. So, I’ve always been familiar with the brand. What I was surprised to learn recently, though, is that they also carry beauty products now.
My husband’s family help sells Tupperware products. While we were staying at his hometown, ate* asked if I wanted to buy from her. I was already thinking about the things I might buy — a lunchbox for my daughter, maybe some boxes for keeping food — but was sidetracked when I discovered that Tupperware sells cosmetics and fragrances now, too, under the Colour Collection brand. (I still did buy things for my daughter, though.)
I don’t really need to buy new makeup yet, but I couldn’t resist trying the brand out. So, I settled for the safest product: a lipstick. I picked the one from the Ultimate Wear line.
The product claims to moisturize the lips and give it a coat of color that would last for as long as eight hours.
Color, Texture, Pigmentation
The shade range is good — nothing that would overwhelm you. I picked Catwalk, a mixture of pink and purple.
I was excited to test the product out and assumed that it was similar to my other matte lipsticks because of its long-wearing claim, but I was a bit taken aback when I opened the tube and twisted out the product. It looked like an intensely colored lip balm.
And then I swiped the product on my lips.
Here’s what it looks like after five minutes. Yes, they look exactly the same. I tried leaving it on for thirty minutes though and that’s the only time the product settled. It dried like a matte lipstick, and it really stuck to my lips. Taking it off was weird, too, because unlike matte lipsticks, I couldn’t wipe it off easily.
Is it rad or bad?
