Collection 2000 Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Cream


Today I'm going to talk about one of the most amazing lip products I've used in a long time - the Collection 2000 Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Cream! I was lucky enough to receive this baby in my International Blog Swap with the forever gorgeous Amy, and she did good!



The idea of this lip cream is very similar to an NYX product that comes to mind, in that it has a matted finish! (A bit disappointed in them spelling matte incorrectly, but oh well, what can you do!)

The colour is "Fairy Cake" which I feel is very apt, as it's a gorgeous pink with a touch of coral, so it's nice and in between! It's such a sweet colour, and definitely something I would pick for myself!



I was so happy to find that it comes with this kind of applicator. Other applicators can be messy, and tricky, but this one glides on easily and doesn't make a mess of my lips!



Swatchola!

The colour is deeply pigmented and the mixture is thick, meaning you don't need to really slather it on the get good colour payoff! This one needs one swipe on your lips and you're done! 




Finished look on my lips! 

I love the outcome of this! It looks matte yet doesn't dry my lips out or accentuate any dryness easily, which is something hard to find with matte products. This is very long lasting, and even lasted through a meal - which to me, is fantastic!

I'd love to get my hands on more of these, but unfortunately, they are not available in Australia!

Overall, this is now one of my favourite lip colours to wear! It's bright without being over the top, it's long lasting without being frustrating to remove, and the colour is just gorgeous and fits me perfectly! I'll be a sad girl when this one runs out, so UK bloggers beware, I may come begging for a care package!

    2. Would you like to do a swap? I live in the UK and have just brought 2 of these so I can get my hands on them! I would love a NYX lipstick but find the hard to get hold of here :(

    3. If it's NYX your after in particular, we don't get those here in Australia either, sorry! You could try beautyjoint.com, they have a lot of NYX goodies!
      Otherwise, I'm not in a position to swap right now but definitely in the future if you're still interested :) (I'm a tad broke right now!!! *cries*)
