Review: Collection 2000 Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Cream in Cotton Candy

Last year Collection 2000 brought out the Collection 2000 Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Cream which proved to be very popular so I thought I'd give my two cents as well.

I picked up the Collection 2000 Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Cream in Cotton Candy which is a lovely dusky, muted pink. The first thing I noticed when I twisted the lid off was the smell. I can't stand sickly sweet smells and good gosh this is bad. It smells a lot like candy (like the name) but in an even sicklier, sweeter form. If you don't mind sweet smelling scents then this won't phase you but honestly, I found it so bad that I didn't want to apply it.

You apply using a doe foot application which makes applying incredibly easily, one quick swipe and you're done. I found I needed just one coat to get an opaque colour on my lips so a little goes a long way as it is very opaque.
Cotton Candy (and the other 3 shades) dries matte which is great for all of you matte lip lovers out there! However, as it does dry matte it does show up dry areas on the lips so applying balm and exfoliating is a must beforehand. On the lips is doesn't feel too drying, it's definitely no Barry M Lip Paint that's for sure! I found that Cotton Candy lasted about 1/2 hours before wearing completely.

Overall, for £2.99 I think these little lip creams are great. Yes the smell is awful and it does show up dry areas and it isn't the most of lasting lip products but for £2.99 you can't go wrong.
