Natural Collection lipsticks

I’ve bought a few Natural Collections bits over the years, I mainly only buy the powder regularly and buy other bits and pieces here and there. Everything is £1.99 and sometimes they do an offer for 3 things for £5 which is pretty good. I bought 2 new lipsticks the other day from Boots to add to slow growing Natural Collection lippy collection. I have 4 now and I really like them. I only tend to go for natural, soft kind of colours, nothing too harsh because I don’t suit really bright lips. I do have a few bright colours, which I dab on for a hint of colour rather than apply it like normal. These are probably not the best lipsticks for staying power, but because I’m not a massive lipstick user I’m not fussed. The two I bought yesterday are ‘Apple Blossom’ and ‘Rose Petal’, both quite similar actually. You can see how I like natural kind of colours, I didn’t really realise until I put them all together. My fave is ‘Sorbet’ because I can put loads on but it’s a really natural nice colour. I’m definitely going to re-purchase it when I’m running low. The swatches aren’t the best, with flash on the photo looked really harsh. I only put a little bit on my hand and you definitely need to build up the colour with these lipsticks if you want a deep colour.

Have you guys ever bought any Natural Collection stuff? What do you think of it?

  2. I used to wear their blusher all the time, but I can't find it in store anymore! I bought a natural collection lipstick the other day which is quite nice, but can't for the life of me remember what shade it was but it was definitely a more natural shade.

    1. That's strange! They usually have the Natural Collection makeup in most Boots stores, even a little one near me! Try ordering online, it's £2.95 P+P which is annoying but if you get a bit of stuff it might be worthwhile! xxx
