I have been wearing make up from quite a young age. I got the love of make up from my mum and my Nan who both took pride in their appearance. Nan was very daring and wore red lipstick right into her sixties.
I was feeling bit down the other night and so was my best mate (xxfoxyredxx) due to the cold weather. We decided to go to Asda and buy a few things to cheep ourselves up. We found ourselves at the make up isle and came across this lipstick.
The packaging on this lipstick had now changed to a cerise pink case and the log is now purple that is seen clearly at the top of the lipstick.
When opening the lipstick it looks like peach in colour however when applied it is pink.
I love this lipstick the shade I chose is called "pretty please" it don't just feel nice on my lips but lasts quite a while too. I used a shade light lip liner before applying. The reason i use a liner is because now i am now thirty five my natural lines are fading and find lipstick bleeds without it. Once applied i blot it and reapply. It has no smell to it and it doesn't sting my lips ,like some do. It feels nice and moisturised. it is suitable to wear as a day time or evening lipstick and is the perfect shade for me having a pale skin tone.
These are fantastic stocking fillers for that special lady in your life.
Available from all good supermarkets and chemists costing around £3.50.
I was very impressed with Collection 2000 nail varnish and mascara as a cheap and cheerful brand, so I thought I'd have a crack at the lipstick they have on offer. I bought a very light shade of pink, and was very excited about the colour as i'd been looking for it for ages. I can't remember having a problem with the lipstick for the first dozen or so applications, but when I tried it a few months after purchase it was awful. When I first bought it, the colour was lovely, and applied very easily, giving a nice, matt, but sparkly finish to my lips. And it used to last for a decent amount of time, definitely through a night out... Now, I'm not at all impressed with it, it applied in clumps, and looked awful. It's one of those nightmare type lipsticks that you apply in the dark and looks dreadful. I know that you are supposed to replace makeup every 6 months or so, but let's face it, none of us do. The moer expensive brands last longer than the cheaper ones, and Collection 2000 lipstick proves this point. It's fine on the day you buy it, but gets more and more clumpy and disappointing as time goes on. All in all, yes, it's cheap and cheerful, for a while, then you have to bin it sadly...
My two year old daughter is a right monkey and at the moment is obsessed with lipstick. I've lost count of the ones she has ruined, not only does she cover her face with it she also covers the walls..little angel!!! I was using Almay long lasting lip colour but at £4.29 this was too expensive to replace so one day I wandered into Superdrug and noticed Collction 2000 did their own long lasting lippie. The colours were exactly what I like pinkish/browns and at £2.19 it wouldn't break the bank if I didn't like it. I bought one and was really surprised, the colour was great and the staying power pretty good. On the whole this is a great value product and the I was so impressed that the next day I went and bought four more in assorted colours. My only gripe is that there doesn't seem to be much in the wand and it isn't that easy to apply.
