Brand Name: Collection 2000 Lasting Colour Lipstick
Colour: Queen Of Hearts
Lipcote Rating: 4.8 / 5
Collection 2000 is one of the more affordable cosmetics brands, with emphasis on trend led colour ranges across lips, eyes and nails.
We chose ‘Queen Of Hearts’, a deep red shade of lipstick. First of all, we love the name! It’s the perfect title for this jammy, fruity, rich red. It’s quite a vampy shade – not a 50’s red but a darker, more modern one, like something you’d see on a Dolce & Gabbana model or in a Tom Ford collection. It’s surprisingly moisturising for a matte lipstick, and the SPF 15 is a great bonus. It applies smoothly and is very lightweight and comfortable to wear, which is probably down to the moisturising properties. Being a matte-satin finish, it also worked perfectly with our Lipcote. The packaging is not the most sophisticated, but at £2.99 we can see they’ve spent their budget on the lipstick formula, rather than a fancy tube. And if we had to choose, we’d much rather have a great lipstick on our lips than a great tube in our bag where no one can see it!
We’re bowled-over by this lipstick – the colour even rivals our go-to red, MAC’s Russian Red! And considering this lippie is about one fifth of the price of a MAC one we reckon it’s done pretty well!
Look out for it in a Lucky Lipcote Draw soon!
Love, Lipcote x
