Collection 2000 Cream Puff's

 
 Price: £2.99
Available from: Boots, Superdrug
Comes in four shades.
 
I know a lot of people don't bother with products from Collection 2000 because they're so cheap and people associate low prices with bad quality but, I've found some real gems in their Cosmetics range! These 'Cream Puff's' are similar to the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, except cheaper and sadly, with fewer shade options. They come packaged in tubes, similar to lipgloss with a doe foot applicator, sleek black lids and embossed writing that's yet to rub off (yay!). As you can see from the tubes, these claim to be 'moisturising lip creams' which I'd half agree with. I find these set to a matte finish that doesn't dry the lips out but if I wear this all day then my lips do look slightly dehydrated. 
Application is incredibly quick and easy as you don't have to take too much care and they're pretty long wearing. I picked up the shades Powder Puff (a light, peachy nude) and Cotton Candy (a deep, vivid pink) - swatches below! I did find that Cotton Candy was a slightly thicker consistency and extremely pigmented, where as Powder Puff has a slightly thinner consistency. I prefer to wear Powder Puff over the top of a glossy nude lipstick to provide a matte finish and extend the wear.
If there were more colours I'd definitely pick up a few more of these but for now, these two are the only shades that appeal to me! At just £2.99 these are a bargain and wont give you any shoppers guilt afterwards!

  1. I have one of these and i do like it but i find that after a while, it comes off and you get that horrid cracked, colour only round the edges of your lips look.
    smell nice though!
