Colour Collection Ultimate Wear Lipstick In Catwalk / Rad Or Bad?

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.

 Packaging

The Colour Collection Ultimate Wear Lipstick comes in a black tube with a transparent portion below the lid that shows the product’s color. It reminded me a bit of the Wet ‘N Wild Megalast Lipstick‘s packaging, although they’re not really identical.

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.

It applied like a lip balm, so at least they weren’t lying about the product being moisturizing. The photo above shows one layer of the product. It looks like I just finished sipping wine, which isn’t really a flattering look on me.
On the box it says to wait five minutes for the color to set.

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?

I’m not sure if I was just expecting too much from this, but I was really disappointed. It’s not entirely bad, but maybe they should have packaged this as a lipstain and not a lipstick so people like me would know what to watch out for.
Have you tried the Colour Collection Ultimate Wear Lipstick before?
And how weird — in an awesomely surprising way — is it that this was made by Tupperware?
