Bags of Beauty Blog: Collection 2000 Lip Cream Puffs in Cotton Candy

I've already posted about the Collection 2000 Lip Cream Puffs, but I've recently tried another shade of it, and I love it!

This colour is called Cotton Candy- a soft pink shade that looks a lot more vibrant when swatched than the colour of the packaging- which probably makes sense!

I'm a huge fan of these Lip Cream Puffs because they're so lovely and smooth in texture, and they really moisturise your lips. The product gives a matte finish- which makes lips look a lot more defined. But I've added lip-gloss over this a couple of times for a glossy finish.

The colour also lasts for ages! Even after you have a drink, most of the colour will still be there.

Also, these only retail for £2.99- which explains why there isn't much product in the actual tube... I'd still recommend it though.
What do you think of these?

Bags of Beauty Blog: Collection 2000 Lip Cream Puffs!

I was in Boots the other day browsing for a couple of beauty bargains (I always do this when I have some change after I go shopping!), and I had a look at the Collection 2000 stand where I saw some Lip Cream Puffs, and I brought one of them in the shade 'Fairy Cake'- a lovely warm coral shade.

The first ever make-up brand I became actually obsessed with was Collection 2000 when I was 15, and I've loved their products ever since! Collection 2000's Lip Cream Puff retail at £2.99- which I thought was such a good deal considering its benefits! And believe me, I didn't think the product would have so many.

  Product benefits:
- Easy, smooth application  - Lovely matte finish  - Gorgeous Vanilla scent 
- Non-sticky formula   - Moisturises lips  - You can choose whether you want the colour of your lips to be  pigmented or subtle as coverage is buildable and you can rub the cream into your lips for a more subtle looks.

Another thing I loved about this product is that it really defines your edges of your lips making them look more shapely. Also, I thought lip-stains were good, but these are sooo much better than lip-stains as I find lip-stains to be a little difficult as it can stain over the lip-line, and it doesn't really provide a proper matte finish like these lip-creams.

Here's a swatch on the back of my hand (With flash- so sorry about the dodgy shadows!):
CHEEKY TIP: I also found that this product can also be used as a cheeky blush! It's not sticky and it blends so easily into your cheeks. Such random advice but you gotta admit- it's really cool!

Have you tried these Lip Cream Puffs? What do you think?
