I bought a few lipsticks from Collection 2000 they were really cheap and I couldn't resist them. I bought them in a couple of shades- a deep red, a coral and a pastel pink.
They don't look expensive but that's fine by me! It comes in a typical lipstick tube with a see through top. To use it you just unscrew the lid and then screw the lip stick upwards. It's really easy to do as it's very smooth so no effort required I suppose the only difficult thing is not unscrewing it too much so you end up with too much lip stick out! My granddaughter did this and managed to break the top of the lip stick off by mistake.
Applying it is easy, it's slightly shaped which makes it really smooth to put on, it followed the shape of your lips nicely and makes getting into the corners of your lips easy.
The colours are lovely, the deep red is my favourite one, it's really nice and if I add a little lip gloss over the top it's a wonderful effect.
My only criticism is that this doesn't have lasting power. After a drink it's gone and that's a shame but at least you can easily reapply it without too much trouble.
I like this lip stick collection, it's very reasonable and you get a good choice of shades to use. It is easy to apply so that makes up for the fact that it doesn't have very good staying power.
I bought a couple of these from superdrug for Halloween. The colours online are not at all representative of how they are in real life. They are a lot lighter and brighter in real life. They are easy to apply, not drying, tries to mix the two lipsticks on my lips and on my hand using a brush to get the colour I wanted but sort of went a bit flaky although they mixed. Great product for the price but I would advise choosing instore rather than online. They are alright, im not sure id buy again as I dont wear lipsticks much but if I did find one that I liked I would buy again. They are very pigmented and dont have a sheen which I find can look old fashioned on me anyway. I prefer one with a bit more moisturiser but I suppose they dont typically last as long. Note: plum is not plum colour. It is bright pink. Unless you put one not two coats on in which case it ends up a bit see through and doesnt last.
Pros - intense colour (two coats)
-worth the money
-a little moisturising but not greasy and not drying.
Cons - colours online not representative of true colours
-if you try to mix colour or use a beuah it can go flaky.
These are definetly worth it for the price i paid for these at £2.99 who can complain plus they are actually alright!
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.
