Natural Collection Lipstick in Raspberry Review


Natural Collection Lipstick in Raspberry
Natural Collection is a brand I always forget about when I am in Boots. It is not very often talked about on Blogs and Youtube and I will often walk past it in Boots due to the unappealing packaging. I know we shouldn't judge a product by its packaging but most of us do and there is something about Natural Collection's packaging that screams 'cheap' and although it is cheap I'd rather pay a bit more money to have a lipstick that looks a bit nicer such as Rimmel. I have tried a few things from them in the past though that I have really liked such as their blushes  which led me to want to try more from the brand and I'd heard that the lipsticks were pretty good so I thought I'd give them a whirl.

Natural Collection is sold in Boots and I believe everything is £1.99 or 3 for £5. The lipstick claims to be high shine and moisturising and all of Natural Collection's products are fragrance free.

I chose the shade Raspberry as when swatched it is a subtle red colour. I don't wear many red lipsticks as I find them a bit scary so I like to buy lipsticks like this that are red but more subtle than a really bright, bold red lipstick.

I really like this colour as I think it is a great way to wear red as it is much more wearable than most red lipsticks. I think this lipstick is a really good choice for this time of year and I know I will be using it a lot in the upcoming weeks. This lipstick isn't super moisturising but it's not drying either and for £1.99 I think the formula is really good. The staying power of these is pretty average it lasts about 2-3 hours before I need to reapply it.

My only complaint about this lipstick is the packaging. The lid doesn't stay on very well and the lipstick snaps really easily and it melts as well. I know it's only cheap but there are other budget brands that don't have this problem and even when you're only spending £1.99 it is still annoying when it breaks so easily. It is still usable but I can't carry it in my handbag otherwise the bullet falls into the lid and it just makes a mess. 

I would recommend these especially if you are on a budget. I would definitely consider buying more colours, I also own Pink Mallow which I will be reviewing separately soon.
