I first tried the Collection Creme Puff in Powder Puff around three and a half years ago when they were first released. I used it up and never purchased another. When I was thinking about posts for this week I remembered how much I’d enjoyed the Powder Puff shade and popped down to Boots to see if they we’re still in existence.
At my local store there were these two shades, Powder Puff and Fairy Cake, but I’m sure there are more in the range. Powder puff is a peachy nude shade while Fairy Cake packs a little more punch and is a brighter pink shade.
The Collection Cream Puffs are a velvety matte finish lip cream. These do look matte on the lips but don’t feel quite as drying due to the creamy consistency of the product. This consistency does mean that they don’t stay put quite as long as something like a matte lipstick from MAC or the NARS velvet matte lip pencils but it does also mean that you don’t have to smother on half a pot of lip balm at the end of the day.
To make these last longer, you could always wear a lip liner underneath on the whole lips, this would also mask the fact that they wear off outwards leaving a lips with a coloured line around them.
Finally, the smell of the Collection Cream Puffs is sweet and vanillary; something which I am a massive fan of, but could easily put some people off.
Have you tried these?
