Sleek Matte Me in 'Petal' | £4.99
I picked this up on a bit of a whim a few months back, I hadn't heard nor had I read anything about these before. If you know me, you know I loooove my Collection Cream Puff lip creams so, whilst it was 3 for 2 in Superdrug, I just picked this up. I picked the shade 'Petal' which is pale pastel pink, I thought it'd be suitable for everyday wear, an easy nude, matte lip kind of thing.
However, the formula of this is just so disappointing. It is VERY drying on the lips, it almost dries instantly on application, it's VERY sheer and it's hard to build the colour up, so you're just left with a colour that is far from opaque on the lips (as shown). It does wear reasonable well in consideration to how not-so-great that it applies, I got a good 2-3 hours wear of this and that was whilst drinking! It just doesn't make up for the dodgy application and sheerness of the lip cream, and it's so unfortunate because I love the shade so much, I love the idea but something is just lacking.

I feel like the darker shades may be more opaque, but I don't think I'll be spending any money on them soon!
Have you tried these/had any better luck than me?
