Current Favourite Lip Combination: Collection 2000 Cream Puff & Topshop Pillow Talk.

You'll have to forgive me if this post doesn't make much sense at times, I'm currently tucked up in bed dosed up on flu medication and I've just woken up from a huge nap. My sleeping pattern is all over the place, I really hate feeling so poorly!

But anyway, enough of that, I'm here to talk about my favourite lip combination of the moment! The Collection 2000 Cream Puffs are something I've had in my collection for a little while and I just wasn't reaching for one particular shade very often. The shade in question is called Powder Puff and I believe this is the palest shade out of the four that Collection 2000 currently have in this range. When worn alone Powder Puff really washes me out, so I have taken to using it as a base for other lipsticks and I can't believe it took me so long to do this!

My favourite lipstick to wear over the Cream Puff is Pillow Talk from Topshop Make Up and I really love how the two work together to give the prettiest baby pink lip! The paleness of the Cream Puff is the perfect base colour to allow the true shade of Pillow Talk to be translated on to the lips.

Do you have a current favourite lip combination or lip product that you just can't stop reaching for at the moment?

  20. Oh, the colour looks so beautiful against your skin tone! Wish I could wear baby-pink type lipsticks, it just makes me look ill because of my darker skin :(
