Natural Collection Eyeshadows



// Asteroid //
 // Barley //


Natural Collection is a brand I had heard of but had never picked anything up for them before. Whilst in Boots, I saw they had some single eyeshadows which looked really nice for £1.70, so I began swatching and was really suprised at how lovely they looked on the skin. They had a 3 for £5 offer on, so I picked up a few and decided to give them a try.

My two favourites from the ones I picked up are 'Barley' and 'Asteroid'. Barley is a skin toned gold colour with lots of shimmer, which when applied gives a gorgeous hint of shimmer to the skin and works lovely as a base colour. Asteroid is a dark brown with flecks of gold shimmer running through it, which I have been using to deepen the outer corner of my eyes. For £1.70 each these eyeshadows are both affordable and good quality and work great for a subtle smokey eye. 


FYI:
 I also noticed that these are the same size as Mac eyeshadows and when depotted fit into the Mac palettes perfectly!

 I would love to know if you have tried these eyeshadows and what you thought. I would be interested in seeing if they had any matte colours in the collection!

  5. When I was at school in the 90s I remember Natural Collection used to cost more than other brands so I used to buy Rimmel which was cheaper. Funny how times change! I do like some of the NC range too. I'm all for a bargain! :-)
