A Lipstick Named 'Satin Bow'

Dear William Shakespeare,
O, pardon me, for doing this:
"What's in a name? That which we call a rose Satin Bow
By any other word name would smell as sweet have 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? =)

  5. The pink looks good but I don't think it's unique:-( but it's really rare to lose interest in shopping suddenly! Yes, at times I too feel when Mr husband accompanies me and stand in a corner with frown when I move towards the makeup counters:@

    1. Hahaha...yes that happens with me too! True, not a unique color at all, but I kind of needed a nude like it.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
