So I thought I’d talk about my current growing obsession with the Boots brand ‘The Natural Collection’. I’ve only got a tiny collection myself at the moment, but no doubt with their prices, I’ll be a Natural Collection hoarder by the end of next week! So here are a few photos of my little bits and bobs:

So, I currently have the Natural Collection Tinted Moisturiser, the loose powder and two lipsticks in ‘Raspberry’ and ‘Apple Blossom’, as you can see from above. I have to say, the tinted moisturiser is pretty good, it’s the first one that I’ve ever used and it’s not had a bad effect on my skin at all. It makes it look healthy and glowing, even under my Mac powder. I don’t use the loose powder as much as I probably should, but when I do, it does give my make-up a nice round off, but I wouldn’t say it’s too amazing. Now, as for the two lipsticks (and I will be adding to this mini collection, I’m telling you!), I absolutely love both. I saw ‘Apple Blossom’ being discussed in a vlog by ‘Shona Shortcake’ (I’ll link in a bit!) and thought it was a nice nude. Good thing about this shade of lipstick, is that it is not TOO fleshy coloured, and has a hint of pink, which is nice as I’ve always wanted a nice pink, but I’ve not been brave enough to get one of the bright shades from Barry M! The same is to be said about ‘Raspberry’. I find that bright block red shades do not suit me at all because my skin tone is more of a paler olive colour, so I tend to try and stay away from them! I saw this shade on a friend of mine at Uni and instantly fell in love with it. I bought it, used it and it would not come off my lips. If you actually saw what the lipstick looked like now, you’d be shocked. It broke, so I stuck it back on, now it’s just a little mound in a tube!! Despite this, I can’t see myself stopping with this product, alongside ANY of them really… I’ve seen some gorgeous eyeshadows that I’ll be getting my hands on this week!
SO, there you have it. 🙂 Once I’ve got a growing little collection of THE Natural Collection, I’ll make a little update.
