I am a great fan of high street make-up brands and recently across Boots and Superdrug a lot of these brands are running offers such as 3 for 2 or 3 for £5 etc. When I recently popped into my local Boots they were doing a 3 for £5 on Natural Collection.
I'd had my eye on a Natural Collection eyeshadow in Heather which I had recently seen on another blog so I decided to get two other bits from the range.
I picked myself up Heather eyeshadow, Antique Coral nail varnish and Moisture Shine lipstick in Rose Petal.
I particularly like the Solo Eyeshadow from Natural Collection, the retail at £1.79 which is a bargain and in an array of natural easy to wear shades. My favorite from the range is called Willow and is a great base eye colour. I was quite keen on Heather after I saw it on another blog and it seemed liked a great dusky mauve colour which I wanted to try.The eyeshadow is lovely but it is no where near as pigmented as my others from the range so I have found that a little disappointing. I have since popped in and swiped some more of the darker shades and to me personally I think that paler shades are more pigmented than the darker ones. I will get use out of the product but i wouldn't repurchase this colour again.
The 2nd item I settled on was a lipstick from the Moisture Shine range which retail at £1.99. This lipstick glides on nice and feels great on my lips, I really prefer lipsticks that are moisturising and a bit more like a lip balm feel. This does tick a lot of boes for me but I am not completely sure about the colour on me, so I really don't feel this will get used that much. But I will take a look at some of the other shades.
Lastly I decided to grab a nail varnish, I choose Antique Coral as i wanted something to perk me up and this seemed to fit the bill. Natural collection nail polishes retail at £1.89 and can be seen here.
This is such a vibrant colour coral shade, and it contains tiny tiny blue flecks in the varnish (you can see if you look closely at the image). I applied 2 coats here and it applied nicely which was a ice surprise for such a cheap nail polish. I can't say I think much of the bottle but it is only small so it fits into my storage nicely. This nail varnish will be a nice summer colour, we just need the weather to cheer up now!
What have you tried from Natural Collection?
