Boots Natural Collection Lipsticks

PIC_0484Hey girlies,

A little while ago I was asked to show you my Natural Collection Lipsticks. I have 6 of them (misplaced one today). They are super cheap but quite good quality. Despite my ever growing collection of MAC lipsticks I still reach for these cheapies just as often.

Natural Collection is a Boots brand which is available in all of their branches. I don’t rate their eyeshadows at all but I do love their lippies.

My favourite is Apple Blossom, a peachy nude. It’s great for muting out lip colour without making it look like you have a mouth full of concealer. I also like mixing it with brighter shades of lipstick, a clever way of injecting a bit of colour when you’re terrified of brights. Rose petal is also gorgeous, it’s a wearable soft pink.

Apple Blossom, Rose Petal and Crimson are richer in texture than the others. Sand Castle and Sorbet are much more sheer.

Have you tried Natural Collection lipstick? What is your favourite?

No Fancy Make-Up for me Today!

This weekend I decided to set myself a drugstore make-up challenge. I only allowed myself wear products that I bought in Boots, Superdrug and CVS. I wanted to keep it quite natural. Here is the look I settled on:


and the look…

I really enjoy using the Beauty UK Palette. I applied the orange shade to the lid and the aqua under my eye. I used Revlon Sable in the crease to blend out the orange and Bourjois No 40 on the inner corner of my eye. I think the No 17 foundation requires a post of it’s own.

My make-up lasted as long as it usually does with more expensive products. I’m converted. For today anyway!
