Collection 2000 Spring Releases Review

As a fan of Collection 2000 products (I wear their liquid eyeliner every day!) I was lucky enough to be sent some of the new Collection 2000 products to review. The majority of these products are out in February and March so here's a sneaky peek! 
Collection 2000 Skyscraper Mascara 

 


This mascara, due out mid February is £4.99 and promises to lengthen, de-clump and define lashes - that's a good price for that kind of product... here's the results. 


 

What do you think? I really like it. The brush is shaped in a way where one half has longer bristles than the other half features shorter bristles for the smaller lashes.


I was really impressed by this mascara - I even used it for my graduation rather than my trusty MaxFactor False Lash Effect Mascara. Try it out for a cheap, lengthening mascara - plus the shorter bristles are really handy.


Collection 2000 Lock and Hold Lipgloss

This new lipgloss, also out in mid March is £2.99.


I got the colours "Beat Box" - a dark pink, and "Twisted Disco" - a lilac colour.


Beat Box - a lovely pink colour. I really like this shade. A lovely coverage, looks great on bare lips or over lipsticks.


Twisted Disco - a lilac colour. I'm not so sure about this colour. It really doesn't suit me! It doesn't give a very thick coverage - like a regular lipgloss, but I think it can be layered up to give a very lilac colour.

The brush is a strange wedge shape which I've never seen before but it works very well. It's narrow enough for an accurate application and loads up well with gloss. This lipgloss is supposed to last 6 hours. I don't know if it lasts that long (I can't go less than 6 hours without eating!) but it does last until you eat!


Collection 2000 Volume Sensation lipstick


This lipstick, out in February also, is £2.99 and is designed to boost your pout and plump your lips. It comes in a huge range of colours, I tested out Peachy Keen and Pretty Pink. You can really feel it tingle when you put it on. I don't know if it plumps any more than Soap and Glory's "Sexy Motherpucker" but it does have the same effect.


Peachy Keen





Peachy Keen is a shimmery peach colour with a gold sheen. It's a really warm, pinky peach colour and it's very flattering. As you can see it does highlight how dry my lips are but if you have moisturised lips then it'll look gorgeous.

Pretty Please





This rosy pink really pops! I'm delighted with this shimmery pink colour, even though it does cling to the dry spots. A great coral-pink lipstick.


Collection 2000 Lasting Colour lipstick


This lipstick really packs a colourful punch! If you're looking for a bright colour, you're looking at the right lipstick. I was sent the colours Cherry Bomb and Mudslide which are very vibrant! It's £3.49 and totally worth a try. I really like this formula.


Cherry Bomb




This is THE red lipstick! It's a perfect red lipstick and has a slightly orangey tone. I really love this, I think it suits me!


Mudslide




Purple isn't really my colour! This deep purple-brown is really fantastic and gives great colour payoff. It looks very "gothic" on me. If you're looking for an unusual purple lipstick though, this is the one. It's a very wearable purple, definitely one that could be worked by other girls. It reminds me of the dark lipstick worn by the girls on X-Factor in 2010.


 

Collection 2000 Perfect Finish Foundation



This air-whipped fluid foundation is very fluid and dewey. It gives a light finish which is quite sheer and natural.


 


As you can see, there is a lovely sheen to this product, great for dry skin and gives that lovely healthy glow. I think personally I'd prefer a better coverage because my skin is terrible at the minute, but for someone looking for a tinted-moisturiser effect this is perfect. This foundation also bosts SPF 20 to protect your skin on a daily basis. It's £4.99.


 


Collection 2000 Ultimate Fix Foundation



This foundation is a very clever solid-to-liquid formula which gives a really full coverage and acts as concealer, foundation and powder. This foundation gives a matte finish, which showed up the dry spots around my nose, but would be fantastic for the summer to keep your face fresh and non-oily. I also love that it comes contained within a set containing an applicator and a mirror for touch-ups on the go. It's SPF 15 and available from mid-March for £4.99.


All these items will be available from the Collection 2000 website, Boots and Superdrug



P.S. My cat, Button, was trying to help with the photos! Although she's a bit scared of my boyfriend's pop-up light tent!

  5. Lovely review of everything, thanks! :)
    The mascara looks really nice and I love the colour of the peachy keen lipstick. I've been looking for a dupe of mac fresh salmon lipstick as I'm running low and this looks pretty close! I'll be forever grateful if it is! :P xxx
