Collection Work the Colour Cosmetics, Lock n Hold Lipgloss

I would like to take this opportunity to let everyone that reads my blog know that I have very little use for lipgloss. My dance makeup or even my guy makeup does not involve them. On top of that, lipgloss is the last on my list of makeup faves. So I’ll rarely do reviews for lipglosses which is why I am including this as a non-categorised post. However, I will give you all the details. And if I do use this product enough I may just do a review for it.

It’s all about the Collection Work the Colour, Lock n Hold Lipgloss. Collection Work the Colour is a makeup company based in the UK and they were introduced to Malaysians early last year. They’re available in selected Watsons and F-Block stores in Malaysia. The line of makeup was founded in 1987 which means they have been in the business 2 years shy of 30 years. I did Google it to see if any Malaysian beauty bloggers had blogged about this particular product i.e. the Lock n Hold Lipgloss. I also tried searching on YouTube if any Malaysians beauty YouTubers had reviewed/introduced the product. I failed on both accounts. I then headed over to the Collection Work the Colour Malaysian website and the product was not listed. It was, however listed on the UK website. So I am guessing the product is little known or has yet been introduced to the masses (or even beauty bloggers) in Malaysia. I got this product because I entered a small giveaway for Mother’s Day via the Collection Cosmetics Facebook page (yes, there were two and I gave mom one!!!). So I don’t even know how much this costs!

It comes with a standard doe-foot applicator. However, it is very flexible as shown in the following picture.

The product has a fruity scent but unlike other lipglosses, it isn’t as thick and gloppy. The other thing to note is, the product is devoid of glitter. On the other hand, the product can bleed. The shade I have (Body Pop) is quite sheer and not very pigmented and thus it isn’t a mess to apply. Even when it does spread, it doesn’t look horrible. I haven’t tried many liglosses but I don’t hate this one.

I have some swatches too.

Just the product. It appears much more sheer on the lips.

Since the colour is quite sheer, layering it on a lipstick may be a better alternative.

Lipgloss junkies should definitely give this product a try if you can find it. I would love to read other reviews from other Malaysian beauty bloggers.
