Natural Collection Lipstick // Pink Mallow // £2 Lipstick!



Natural Collection Lipstick in Pink Mallow £1.99 from Boots

I used to avoid cheap make up, linking it with low quality - But over time I'm coming to realise that this is not always the case. I picked this shade of Natural Collection lipstick up in Boots, thinking it was a faultless colour and worth a go.
On application, I found it moisturising and creamy, with no real need to exfoliate the lips and apply lip balm prior - A step that is rarely skipped by myself, thanks to the driest lips in the land. It does need reapplying sooner than with higher end lipsticks, but I don't mind this one bit, as its £2 and a definite daytime lipstick for me!
Applied, the shade shows up quite light on me, but in a warm, natural way. I've never been able to pull off light shades such as Mac's Viva Glam Gaga and Creme Cup, so this is a perfect step into a lighter shade than my natural lip colour without looking fake and a little bit odd.

What 'cheap' make-up bits (especially lipsticks) do you love?

  3. What a bargain! And such a lovely colour on you :)

    I love Collection 2000 (now just Collection) products, especially their eyeshadows and blushers. I tend to go for pricier products on things that i wear everyday (like foundations and whatnot) but other than that i have no problem with cheaper brands. Will be sure to check out Natural Collection :)

  7. I have a Natural Collection lipstick in rosebud and it's a really lovely colour! It really surprised me too as they're so cheap :)

    I went to Roys once and found a huge bucket of sale items, most of which were from the brand W7. I bought a concealer and it was amazing. It was creamy, stayed put, and covered up under-eye circles really well. Sadly I've used it all up now but if I ever see it again I wouldn't hesitate to buy it!
