What a mouthful of a title. : )
Today's post is about these two gorgeous products I picked up last week. (If you follow me on Twitter, you'll probably know I've been lusting over these for a while). There are 4 different shades available, I have the Cotton Candy (light pink) & the Angel Delight (dark nude), but you can also get the Powder Puff (light nude) & Fairy Cake (dark pinky / red).
I first saw these over at Kate's blog & knew I had to have them!
So, what are they? Well, they are lip creams but with a twist. They apply exactly like a lip gloss, but dry like a lipstick.
They have a matte finish, which makes them appear to be just a normal lipstick, except they help moisturise your lips. To me, this just makes them amazing, my lips always dry instantly from wearing normal lipsticks.
They also smell delicious! Seriously, it's hard not to want to lick your lips as soon as you apply them.
When I went to buy these lip creams, I really had no idea which ones to pick. (Boots are doing a 2 for £5 deal on them at the moment, so I thought I'd chose 2, to see if I like them, then go back for the other 2 if I did). The only ones Boots had were the Angel Delight & Cotton Candy, so my decision was kind of made for me, but I wasn't so sure on the colour of the Angel Delight. I'm more of a pink / red lipstick girl, so buying this colour was completely out of character. But I have to say, it's gorgeous, especially for Autumn / Winter season. : )
Swatch of Angel Delight.
Swatch of Cotton Candy.
Only downside I will say about them is they don't last as long on your lips as you'd probably like. (To be honest, I'm awful when it comes to lipsticks rubbing off. Anything that lasts less than a couple of hours on my lips isn't acceptable. I think I chat way too much & it just comes off!) I'd say you'd have to apply this at least once every 2 hours to keep the same strong pigment you first apply to your lips. But other than that, I love this product! Definitely going to be buying the other two shades.
Have you tried these? & what do you think of them if you have? : )
