Manhattan Soft Mat Lip Creams




Hello beauties! How are we all today? Thanks for to everyone who wished Lulu well she's very slowly getting better and getting back to her naughty self!

While browsing Fragrance Direct the other night I spotted these... Now instantly I thought of Collection Cream Puffs and I couldn't be more right, when I first brought cream puffs and fell in love one thing I wished for were more colours. Dreams come true girls!

The packaging is practically identical to the cream puffs in fact the other difference is the labels. They feel sturdy and strong you wouldn't find this accidentally opened in a make-up bag. The doe foot applicator is simple and easy to use and holds a good amount of product.

56k - Dusty Pink - Wow I love this colour, a really pretty feminine pink. It's not at all bright but still lifts your make-up and is noticeable. It reminds me of a real vintage pink, or a pink rose! Lovely!

45H - Red - This is a lovely red tone with slight blue undertones, I find the formula of this one less attractive then the other two and had to apply it twice to achieve an even finish. You can see in the photo it was opaque.

54L - Deep Pink - This colour is so pretty and really hard to pin point its pink and yet it has a peachy red tone too, but I found it really flattering against my pale skin tone. It looks gorgeous on a the formula is lovely.

I really like these and they come in 7 different colours! The most amazing part? they only cost 99p, Quickly to Fragrance Direct!

Will you be trying these Manhattan Soft Mat Lip Creams?!


  1. Can't believe they are 99p, they look so creamy! Think I might treat myself to the Dusty Pink, its gorgeous!

  12. These look gorgeous! I love matte lip creams, I picked up one of the new Sleek matte creams the other day but it's quite drying and doesn't smell as nice as the Collection ones so I'm uncertain about it... I might have to get on Fragrance Direct and check out these Manhattan ones!
