Collection 2000 Lip Cream Puffs

I have always been a fan of Collection 2000. I think they have really good quality products for such affordable prices - its always a section Im drawn to when I go into a drugstore. I was recently on the hunt for these after seeing Lisa Eldridge use them in her most recent tutorial - and I realised I havent been aware of any matt lip creams at an affordable price so I was really excited to try them.

The Cream Puff's are available in four shades (above) and are described as a 'moisturising lip cream with a velvety soft, matt finish'. There are 5ml in each tube and they have a sponge tip applicator, which I think is perfect for the texture of these lip creams.

Now onto the colours..





Cotton Candy - A Rich Pink Colour
Powder Puff - A lighter nude colour (perfect for lighter skin tones)
Fairy Cake - A more coral-red toned pink
Angel Delight - A slightly darker nude (perfect for darker skin tones)

As you can see they are highly pigmented, and they definitely leave my lips with soft, moisturising finish - not drying at all (as some matt lip products can be).
They also lasted a decent amount of time on my lips - longer than a normal lipgloss would!

Overall I definitely recommend these & I wish they could bring out more shades!
At £2.99 - they're are a real bargain!

Thanks for reading!
Love M, xxxx
