Dear William Shakespeare,
O, pardon me, for doing this:
"What's in a name? That which we call a
By any other
wordname would smell as sweethave me at 'Hello'."
Have you ever felt so overwhelmed in a beauty/fashion store that you feel a sudden disinterest to shop & want to leave asap? That's what happened to me in Superdrug one evening. I went in with all this excitement and within 5 minutes I wanted to get out of there....empty-handed. But I couldn't.... I couldn't! It felt illegal to leave without picking up at least one item. I found my feet pinned in front of Collection Cosmetics, one of the inexpensive brands in the UK.
Lipsticks. Yes, safer. Wow, quite cheap. No reds & pinks today, okay? Nudes then. Good girl. Tea Rose. Ooh, pretty shade! Looks better than NYX Tea Rose. Browner. Let's just buy this and get out. Wait, what's this shade on the right? Lighter than Tea Rose. Shade name? 'Satin Bow'
In those few seconds, Superdrug went silent & my nerves untied like a satin bow on a gift box. Let's just say in the next 5 minutes, I also picked up a bronzer, a pencil liner & an eyeshadow palette.....and legally left the store.
Collection Volume Sensation Lipsticks contain up to 40% volumising ingredients to plump your pout. That's the claim. Satin Bow is a warm milky peachy-pink. The color is similar to MAC The Perfect Cheek Blush from Marilyn Monroe Collection, so must wear it with that next time! Because it's so pale, I'd team it only with smoky eyes. It's very creamy & moisturizing, and does make my lips look a tad plumper. I do feel a very mild cooling sensation when I wear it- must be the volumising ingredients. It doesn't last long on my lips, 1/2 an hour at the most.
Scented? Nope. Very very mild lipstick-ey scent, but it doesn't stay on the lips.
Satin Bow on my lips. Oops, forgot to swatch it on my hand! Will update.
Packaging is plain hot pink plastic with just some shiny on the top of the cap. Not too fancy, but good & fun enough for the price.
Price ~ Rs.258 (£2.99)
My Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 3.5/5
Have a good week everyone! What do you think of Satin Bow? =)
