Woaahhh, look at my bare lips! The camera certainly picks up my freckles. I didn't even know I had that many on my lips. Also, my mouth area really isn't as hairy as these photos imply! *sigh*
Anyway, I'm not a big lip product wearer. I don't like the feeling of having products on my lips and I usually cannot be bothered to reapply them. That's why I like lip stains. These Collection Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Creams are light on the lips and last for a couple of hours, so I love them. I've actually had them for a few months (And I have an NYX lip cream, which I will also be reviewing soon), but I'm only just reviewing them now. At least I can give you an informed review! You apply these lip creams like you would a lip gloss and then they dry to a matte finish. They are creamy and take a minute or two to fully dry, so you can blend them in and sheer them out, if you want to. I really like the matte finish - I feel too made up if my lips are glossy. People with dry lips tend not to be fond of matte lip products, but you can always wear a lip balm underneath (I do this sometimes and it doesn't affect the colour).
These lip creams are only £2.99 - Yay! I would like Collection to bring out a few more shades. A berry colour would be great. NYX have a larger shade range, but they are a little more expensive for us living in Britain (Around £5-6, including P&P from America though, so they're still cheap). I'll talk more about them in another post!

Have a good day!


  1. I love the Collection Cream Puffs, I think the matte finish is perfect for the day time and I love that they are still moisurising :) I also think they should come out with a few more shades, a berry colour would be great!

  2. im surprised they havent released a matte red yet! it'd be gorgeous! <3

  3. I still haven't picked up any of these - I really need to since everyone raves about them! x

  4. I love these Cream Puff Lip Creams and like you say it would be lovely if they brought of some more shades - maybe near winter with a berry and a red shade. That would be perfect!

    Great pics and review.

  5. I have been tempted to try these, they do sound really good but because the finish is matte I have always been put off. Do they dry your lips at all/ or show any dryness? xx

    1. They don't dry my lips out, but I rarely have problems with my lips anyway. Sorry I couldn't be of more help! x

  6. I love love love these. I have the cotton candy, just so addicted to smelling it everytime I put it on my lips. :') xx

  7. I love my one in cotton candy. Smells divine!

  8. Oooh, these look absolutely beautiful, I love both of the colours you have. Hopefully I can get them soon. x

  9. Gorgeous, I really want to try fairy cake :-)

  10. You're so lucky that your lips are so pale - it means that your swatches always look so accurate! xx

  11. wow beautiful..
