Recently when I was shopping in Boots I came across a stand called Natural Collection for the first time. This is a range that appears to be made by Boots themselves and although I had heard about it through a couple of videos on YouTube I hadn’t actively searched for any of their products. I only thought it would be a few of this range that was £1.99 but after looking at it, it seems everything is £1.99 so I decided to pick up a few things to see if there were any hidden gems.
I picked up 5 things:
- The loose powder in Neutral Translucent
- Green corrector stick
- Moisture shine lipstick in the shade Cranberry (I can’t find a link to this)
- A single eye shadow in the colour Barley
- A single eye shadow in the colour Lilac Shimmer
I am yet to use the green corrector stick and the lilac eye shadow so I will only talk about the things I have tried so far.
One morning a couple of weeks ago I woke up and really wanted a no makeup day so decided I would go for minimal. I used the eye shadow in Barley all over my eyes and it didn’t really show up at all, it only had a slight shimmer. I didn’t really mind but I know not to use it if I really want a strong colour to show.
I actually quite like the lipstick. It’s a nice shade and the staying power isn’t too bad but if I wanted one to last all day I probably wouldn’t choose this one. All of this is scent free and I really like lip products that smell delicious and although this is personal preference I would just really like it to smell good!
I have used the powder a couple of times and as far as powders go it’s quite pleasant to use. It gives a very light dusting and does control shine. It was £1.99 so I’m not really going to complain.
Overall I like these products but they’re not my favourite. I know everything is only £1.99 but the packaging also feels like it is £1.99. I think maybe this range would be really good for someone new to makeup or for someone on a low budget as there is quite a lot of colour eye shadows other bits to try out.
Have you used anything from this collection?
