Collection 2000 Lock n Hold Lipgloss in Rock Steady Review


Hello you scoundrels,

I hope you are all having a marvellous Saturday. I’m bringing you a very quick review today, because quite frankly there is only so much you can say about lipgloss. A LIPGLOSS?! Yes, apparently we’ve time travelled to 2003 and I’m actually going to start doing OOTDs with my oversized disc belt and white gypsy skirt.


Anywho, lipglosses are great – especially if you can tear yourself away from the terrible fact that no matter what you do, your hair will always get stuck to your lips. I like wearing them during the day, partly because they’re easy to reapply at my desk and also because I can’t be trusted to wear lipstick to work (i.e. it manages to get on my nose and forehead, don’t ask me how).

I’m a big fan of Collection and here at the old Stylingo ‘hood, we enjoy a bit of Collection 2000 reviewing – check out our Collection reviews if you’re feeling wild.

What I am not a fan of is cheap lipgloss. It tends to be really sticky, gloopy, generally rubbish and sob-inducing. The Lock n Hold lipgloss is £2.99, so we can safely say it’s a cheap lipgloss. But is it all of these tragic things?

Well….kind of. I do really like it and I recommend it if you’re looking for an everyday gloss. Their colour range is really nice – Claire has the lilac version and it looks absolutely brillo. I just find it a little bit gloopy and touch to work with. The trick is not to layer it on too thickly (quite obvious but easy to do with the Lock n Hold) and spread the colour evenly.

Rock Steady is a pale whitey nude colour, which is right up my street. It looks quite nice on and I’m happy with it! In terms of lasting 6 hours, I say to Collection…are you having a bleedin’ laugh?


What do you think? Have any of you tried the Lock n Hold Lipgloss?
