Mattes for your lips

If you're a fan of matte textures then I suggest you check out these little gems from Collection 2000.
Velvet feeling, matte looking and moisturising lip creams - and let me just add that they smell delicious.
These come in four shades: Cotton Candy (pink), Angel Delight (beige), Fairy Cake (coral), Powder Puff (nude).
Cotton Candy and Fairy Cake are bold, bright and perfect for summer. Angel Delight is proving to be my absolute favourite. It's a great neutral shade that's perfect for every day wear and neutral looks...I need to stock up on it! Powder Puff is a true nude and the perfect accompaniment for an intense smoky eye.
These lip creams glide on easily, feel soft on the lips and once they set they create a stain like effect. They're also incredibly long lasting - you'll only need to touch up after eating or drinking - other than that you may rest assured that they won't be going anywhere.
Overall, I truly adore them!

Another bargain that I came across in Superdrug was this lipstick from Beauty UK, retailing at £2.99 (same as the Cream Puffs). 
I've walked past this brand countless of times and it's never really intrigued me until I spotted this shade.
It's called "Snob" and my first impression was that it bared a rather uncanny similarity to Revlon's Pink Pout Matte Lipstick (which I love), but when compared with Pink Pout, Snob seems to have a bit more of a lilac hue to it.
The textue is completely matte and the lipstick has a minty scent to it.
This colour is perhaps a little bit too "brave and daring " for my usual look but I seem to be liking it anyway.


  1. YES YES, i am a big fan of matte lips. omg these are so gorgeous!..quick, where can i get them in the US? lol

  2. @Mishi - Hi, I've absolutely no idea if you can get these in the US...I suspect that Collection 2000 might only be available in the UK. Keep a lookout for other brands that are coming up with these matte lip gloss type products. I think that NYX might have someting a little bit similar called Soft Matte Lip Cream - I haven't tried it but it does sound similar.
    Sorry I couldn't help. Have a good day!

  3. Really nice post on lipstick I love the sexy shades.
