Collection Cream Puff in 'Cotton Candy' // Review

Once upon a time I tried one of these in the shade 'Fairy Cake.' I loved it but wasn't a fan of the shade, shows how I've changed though as I now love corals! I'd completely forgotten about these little bargains though until I saw Jess from JessxoBeautyxo rave about this shade all the time. I've been loving collection products recently and I'm definitely looking to try more from them! Despite them being a brand I love I haven't actually tried that many products.

These £2.99 bargains apply like a dream, there is a doe foot applicator and they apply as a soft cream, for a matte lip product I was impressed as it didn't feel drying at all! They have a vanilla scent to them as well, not like MAC Lipsticks but its a lovely smell, it's always a plus when your product smells good.

Cotton Candy is a muted pink shade, it is very wearable and I can see it working for a lot of people. It isn't a light pink but it isn't a bold pink, somewhere inbetween, great for everyday wear.

This gives your lips a matte look but with added moisture, I didn't find this to make my lips dry at all. It is completely matte and I much prefer this soft cream formula over any matte lipstick, it is so much more moisturising! I find this cream puff stays on my lips for about 4-5 hours, I have to say I'm pretty impressed by this product!

I didn't expect much from it at all and I certainly didn't expect to like it so much as I'm not the biggest fan of matte lip colours. I can't wait to pick up more shades though and at only £2.99 it would be rude not to!

Have you tried these? If not, do they take your fancy?

Thanks for reading,
