Collection 2000 Cream Puff Lip Cream in Cotton Candy

I have my photoshoot for my makeup course this Saturday so there’s been a bit of ensuing madness to ensure I have every product needed for each of the 5 looks. While in Boots this week and on the hunt for the perfect lipstick for a day look, my boyfriend and I (both covered in swatches at this stage) wandered past the Collection 2000 drop and spotted this little tube of loveliness.

Prayers answered, it went straight in the basket and I’ve quickly decided I’m going to have to go back and see the other shades on offer, it’s that good.

Product: In a cute tube, this shade in Cotton Candy is a lovely muted pink that screams easy wear to anyone who likes a more natural shade on their lips.

Application: This goes on silky smooth and immediately settles to a soft, velvet finish without becoming dry.

Result: This is a beautiful colour in a finish that feels expensive. I’m not a lipstick kinda gal for every day looks so this is a great compromise between a gloss and a lipstick and lasts well once applied. I seriously want every colour!

8.5/10

Pros: Cheap, easy to use, a beautiful natural shade that would suit pale and darker skin tones alike

Cons: None that I can think of!

Would I buy again? Absolutely

(This looks a lot stronger in real life)

So are you a lipstick or a lipgloss kinda girl and would you try this product? Let me know!

    I’m definitely more of a lipstick kinda gal than a lip gloss one but I love these.

    I have this but it doesn’t look as nice as it does on you, it doesn’t look as consistent on me but it is a great product, i love that its not sticky at all
