Lips as Sweet as Cake

When Watsons started to sell Collection, other than their famous Lasting Perfection Concealer I got really intrigued by their lip creams, Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Cream. Sadly, the shade that I thought was perfect for me was sold out. About a month later when I went back there I saw that the shade that I wanted was there on the shelf and of course I grabbed it before it sold out again. It was RM 19.90 (about $5.40) for 5 ml, quite an affordable price for a lip cream.


The shade that I picked up was Fairy Cake. It’s a pretty coral shade that doesn’t really look too orange but leaning more to pink shade. As being said on the tube, it gives matte finish. The applicator is a wand just like the one for lip glosses. The pigmentation is also great as it’s not too sheen and just one layer of it will give you a nice coral pink lips. The formula of this lip cream is so creamy and glides quite easily on my lips.

What I noticed first when I applied it was the nice vanilla scent, which I think really suits its name. This scent is not too overpowering in my opinion and only lingers for a while, so don’t worry that it will make you feel queasy if you don’t really like sweet scents. If anything, the scent actually makes you craving for some cakes!

What I don’t like about this lip cream is that it clings to dry patches, accentuates them even more. I also feel that my lips feel drier after I applied this lip cream. A wipe of lipbalm will help, but I recommend exfoliating your lips first just to be safe. The staying power of this lip cream is quite great, about 4 hours and it didn’t budge even when I drink or wash my face in the middle of the day.



I really love the shade of this lip cream, too bad that it doesn’t moisturise my lips as promised. But still, I will use it when I want a nice coral pink lips for the day.
