COLLECTION // Cream Puff Lip Creams



Sorry I haven't posted for a couple of days, but I'm back now :) Recently I picked up a couple of new products - the Collection 'Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Creams'. I'm an absolute sucker for matte lip products so you can imagine how excited I was to find these, especially since I've been looking for matte lip creams similar to the NYX ones everyone rants about.

I picked up the colours Cotton Candy which is a dusky pink colour and Fairy Cake which is a soft corally colour. My personal favourite is definitely Fairy Cake as I feel Cotton Candy is too close to the colour of my lips so it's not very noticeable. There are two other colours to choose from; Powder Puff and Angel Delight, both are quite nude tones.

These are really creamy to apply [which can make it quite hard to apply if your in a rush because it does tend to go everywhere!], but then dry to give a matte finish within around a minute or so. I usually go for two coats to get a really opaque look and apply it with my fingers as using the applicator can leave it looking streaky on your lips. I found they last around a couple of hours before you need to reapply, but they do have a tendency to crumble a little at the corners of my mouth which I don't really like.

That said, they don't dry my lips out as much as other matte products I have, which is great because my lips are so prone to getting dry! However I wouldn't agree with the fact that they are moisturising in any way as stated in the name. Another plus is that they also smell really lush - they have a slight sweet vanilla scent which is a really nice touch.
