Budget Makeup: Natural Collection

Hey Everyone! Welcome to my blog :))
So if you're anything like me, you don't want to spend your whole, damn, paycheque at MAC or Chanel or where ever because no one sees the big brand name when it's on your face, right? And  there are products out there just as good for a fraction of the price. 
Recently when I was in Boots, I came across the brand 'Natural Collection' and I was quite pleasantly surprised. They are very reasonably priced and I picked up a few things that I thought some of you girls would be interested in. Everything is around £1.99 and there is a 3 for £5 offer :O it sort of sounds to good to be true! The packaging is pretty basic and definitely isn't the most attractive thing in the world. But you cant judge a book by it's cover..

Loose Powder - Neutral Translucent
So the first thing I picked up is the loose powder and it worked out a lot better than I expected; the pigmentation is pretty great, it stays on all day and the shade looks amazing on my skin.
But is it comparable to the Bare Escentuals and other high end loose powders? Yes, to be honest, it is just as good. 
The only bad things I could note is the packaging, it's a bit cheap looking and you need to give it a good shake to actually get any of the product out. Also it is slightly drying on the skin but if you have normal or oily skin that won't be a problem.

Blusher - Pink Cloud
Okay, next up is the blusher in the shade Pink Cloud. It is the most gorgeous, peachy, pink colour and it is very natural looking. The pigmentation isn't amazing but it is definitely buildable. I find that it applys best with your fingers as it has a silky, smooth consistency.
But again, I have to say, I am not in love with the packaging.

Lipgloss - Raspberry Ripple 

Last, but not least, is the lipgloss, in the shade Raspberry Ripple. Well it smells amazing! The colour is a very, pretty, pale, pink with a subtle, rose gold shimmer to it. It has a gorgeous shine, but applys slightly sheer. You could wear it on its own, but I think it would look stunning pared with a nice Barbie pink lipstick.

Overall, I am satisfied :) In a nutshell, they are decent products, in very pretty colours, with ugly packaging. At that price, I will definitely be picking up a lot more of their products, as they also have a range of: foundation, mascara, eyeliner, nail polish and more.

Thanks for stopping by :D I hope you enjoyed. PLEASE leave me a comment on your opinion of the brand? if you have any recommendations? any requests? should I make more posts like this? or just any kind of feedback would be appreciated!
Thanks so much :')
