These lipsticks, along with every other item of makeup by Natural Collection, cost a whopping £1.99 each. I have to admit this made me suspicious at first. If it's that cheap, I wondered, surely the quality wouldn't be up to much? Well, in fact, the quality is seriously impressive for the price. The shades of these lipsticks are lovely, they are smooth and creamy to apply and have a nice shiny finish. The staying power isn't the greatest, but it's not terrible either. Blot and reapply - it's old school, but it works! - and you'll get a good two to three hours out of one of these bad boys.
The only thing I'm not crazy about is the white plastic packaging, but let's face it, if a brand is going to offer such low-priced makeup, it's the packaging I want them to skimp on, rather than the product!
You can see from the swatches how pigmented these lipsticks are. Raspberry is at the back and Cranberry at the front.
And here I am in my selfie spot, wearing my selfie shirt. As usual with these face pictures, I'm concentrating, so cannot possibly smile at the same time. I'm wearing Cranberry above, and Raspberry below.
Do you like these shades? Which is your favourite? Any other Natural Collection fans out there?
