candy cotton

Oh dear I haven't posted in a while, I apologise for this but I have been very busy with uni work and I've had a really bad cold the last few days.

Since last posting, I have been shopping again and I bought a cute playsuit and a lovely dress from Urban Outfitters. As I am so impatient and can't wait to do an outfit post, below is the picture I took of the dress in the changing room. I just love the polka dots and think it's a really flattering shape for me.

Collection 2000 Cream Puff

Moving on..this post is going to be my first make-up post as I wanted to share the brilliant Collection 2000 Cream Puff with you. I never normally buy products by Collection 2000 but I heard that their new lip cream was really worth buying. It comes in four shades...Cotton Candy, Fairy Cake, Powder Puff and Angel Delight. Because these lip creams are only £2.99 I actually have three of the colours already, the one I don't have is Powder Puff. When I first looked at the product, I thought it looked like a lipgloss but it's completely different. I would say that it is in between a lip stick and a gloss. It's got a smooth (obviously creamy) texture and it has a matt finish which is what I really like about it. It does have a very synthetic smell but I don't think that's worth worrying about. Below I have pictured myself wearing the three shades I have and rated them out of ten.

Cotton Candy: 10/10
I love this shade so much, I've actually been wearing it in my recent posts if you can spot it. I love the pinky/purple shade but I also love the fact it is subtle so I can wear it everyday but it still look like I've made an effort!

Fairy Cake: 6/10
I do like this shade and I have worn it out but it hasn't photographed very well (although maybe that's my face). I would give it more but it is quite orangey, I wish it was more of a subtle coral shade.

Angel Delight: 1/10
You can clearly see that this colour does nothing for me, it drains my colour and really doesn't suit me. I'm not saying it won't suit you though. This is my least favourite.

Overall I would give this product a 9/10 and totally recommend it. I would give it a ten but I don't know how long it is going to last but then I suppose it is only £2.99. I will definately try out Powder Puff and continue to buy Cotton Candy as it's my favourite.

Have any of you tried out this cream puff or have any other similarly great products?


  1. That playsuit looks really sweet, and actually the cream puff lipgloss looks really good too. I've heard/read various things about this gloss, but there's no denying that 1) cotton candy is a fab colour and 2) it's cheap! what more could you ask for! definitely going to 'splash out' on it x

  2. Aww thanks, that pic's of my dress! Yeah I would defo recommend buying this lip cream, it's lovely :) thanks for commenting! X

  3. Love the dress, so cute!
    Also love that second lip cream, such a pretty colour.

  4. Thank you Zoe :) I love it!
    Glad you like it, you should defo purchase it :) x

  5. I am in loooove with that dress!!! and those lipglosses are beautiful!

    LoveFaye xoxo

  6. I found the lip creams a bit drying on my lips!
    That dress is gorgeous on you though :)

  7. Faye: Thanks for the comment :) yeah they are great! X
    Angle: Yeah I have found that a bit so I use a bit of Vaseline :) aww thank you :) x

  8. The fact that it's packaged as a lip gloss, put me off buying it as I really hate gloss, because I find it gloopy and uncomfortable. I love the coral shade, think I might have to give it a try now, thanks! x

  9. love those colours :) Nice dress Xx

  10. wow that dress is stunning,I love polka dot at the moment, it looks like the style was made for you! I think dark blue is such a good colour for the autumn :)
    I haven't heard of this new lipgloss but it sounds brilliant,I think collection 2000 is often very underated! I deffo like the first one the most on you and think that would be the colour I'd go for too,gonna have a look for it next time I go shopping :D
    I love your blog,I'm really enjoying reading through all your posts :) I love the fur scarf/collar thingy in your latest post, I really want one but don't feel brave enough as I don't think I have enough in my wardrobe to o with it :/ I love H&M atm they have some real gems :)
