Review: Collection 2000 Lock n Hold Glosses

The other day I was in Asda and spotted these glosses. They caught my attention because they have no shimmer or glitter in them. I like that for lips. So I picked up Body Pop (1), a bubblegum pink, and Rock Steady (3), a nude colour. They were on offer for £2 but I don't remember what the usual retail price was. They are brand new though, so I'm sure there will be lots of promotions on them. When I got home I wanted to find out more about them and check out the other shades since I hadn't spent long looking at them. I found out they aren't due to be released until the 14th or something, so I was quite pleased to have got them a week early!

Onto the photos.

These glosses advertise themselves as being long-lasting, with the tube stating you can get "up to 6 hours wear". I've been wearing them at work during the week, and I can say they are just average in terms of how long they stay on the lips. I get about 2-3 hours wear maybe. They also tend to matte down as they wear, leaving just the colour on my lips. I have other lipglosses that last a lot better, but I tend not to expect lipgloss to stay on that long. I don't mind reapplying. The colour itself it pretty sheer, but I think they are nice. Rock Steady particularly is good for paling down your lips without giving you that 'concealer lips' look, which works well with a darker or smoky eye. 

Overall: I like the glosses, lovely colour selection and I love that they aren't shimmery at all. I would definitely repurchase, but don't buy them expecting them to last all day!
