Natural Collection Moisture Shine Lipstick in Raspberry: Review and Swatches (Autumn Addictions)

 Sorry for the lack of blogging in the last couple of weeks. A mixture of looking after my new puppy Bertie, starting my final year at university and catching up with friends, has meant that I've had less time to sit down and blog.

I thought today I'd show a great budget buy lipstick for autumn, as part of a new series of posts featuring lipsticks and nail polishes perfect for Autumn through to Winter.

I first spotted this lipstick on a blog years ago called The M Face and then decided to treat myself because it was so cheap. Natural Collection lipsticks have had a lot of praise from the beauty community, especially the nude shades, and it's not hard to see why.

The colour of this lipstick is a flattering raspberry colour, so it's an appropriate name, with a cream finish and no shimmer. 

I'm definitely going to be using this throughout this Autumn/Winter because it gives a really effortless, natural berry colour and isn't drying on the lips.

The pigment is good but because of the moisture shine formula, it can be applied lightly or more heavily for the more intense colour like in the swatch above or on the bullet.

The packaging of the Natural Collection lipsticks may not be the best or fanciest but it does the job. I also don't find this lipstick to have an awful, artificial taste like some brands *cough Rimmel and L'Oreal*.

Natural Collection is sold in Boots, as it is a Boot's own brand range, and most of the products are £1.99. I think their lipsticks are £1.99 but I'm not sure, as it sadly isn't available online at the moment. The Natural Collection range is usually 3 for £5 as well so either way it's a nice pick me up whether you're on a budget or not.

P.S Boots are currently having '3 for 2 across 1000s of skincare, No7, cosmetics, mens & indulgent bathing', I'm getting excited just thinking about it now.

  1. Hello!!I was recently in London and I bought one of these lipsticks, the pink mallow and the truth is that I love the texture and color of it. It's a shame that here in Spain do not sell that brand, I have to tell my sister, who lives there, to buy me other products from this brand because is cheap and I think it has an acceptable quality. Sorry if I haven´t write very nice but I haven´t written in english for a long time. Kisses
