Lipstick that lasts! Collection 2000 Cream Puff

I think my last encounter with Collection 2000 make up came in the form of free lip gloss on the cover of Just Seventeen magazine circa 1993! Not that I have had anything against the brand I have just never been particularly drawn to it since. No doubt, I would probably have missed out on these fantastic lip creams if they hadn't been mentioned in a make up tutorial by the amazing make up guru, Lisa Eldridge.

I think the Cream Puff lip creams are incredibly unique, I can't think of anything else like them on the market at the moment. The packaging may look like a lip gloss and they are in fact applied like one too, but the finished effect is very different and appears more like a velvety matt lipstick.

They have incredible staying power, I usually have to remove mine at the end of the day. This longevity does come at a cost however, they are on the dry side so I would advise applying plenty of lip balm before and after, crusty lips are sooooo not yummy!

                               L-R: Cotton Candy, Fairy Cake, Angel Delight, Powder Puff

For me, the stand out colour is Fairy Cake, a gorgeously strong coral shade, which I am wearing in the photograph below. Cotton Candy is a bright pink cream which is a little too blue for my olivey colouring. I actually gave this shade to my mother who is much fairer skinned than I am, it looks lovely on her but she no longer wears it because she finds the consistency too drying.....but refuses to use lip balm *eye roll*
Angel Delight is a great neutral brown, personally I find it a bit wintry for this time of year but maybe that's just on me, I have yet to see it on someone else. Powder Puff is one of those colours which is bordering on that concealer lips look, I think it needs a touch of clear gloss to avoid that effect ( unless of course that's what you're after!)



Sound good? Wait until you hear the price.....

£2.99, each!!!!!!!!!!

Sneak them in your shopping basket whist you're doing a Saturday morning nurofen shop, should you be lucky enough to still have Friday nights nights out!! Or if you're like me, smuggle them home with the Pampers & Aptamil!!

Here's the link from Boots

Have you tried these Lip Creams or do you know of anything similar?
