Oh gosh, I have not used Natural Collection since I was a teen and they were as far as my budget went. All though I swear some days it still feels the same! I am sure if you have ventured into Boots before you would of seen the Natural Collection stand, it isn't the most busiest, but they do offer fair trade, organic and eco friendly makeup. All for under £2 I may add. I think Natural Collection does get over looked but that may be due to the fact that they were everyones first makeup dabbling so they are now shunned. Including myself! However, I needed a light colour eyeshadow, matte which I could use on my brow bone as a highlighter. I love the colour Virgin in my Urban Decay Naked Palette but the shimmer just isn't ideal for everyday.
So enter Natural Collection eyeshadow in Butterscotch. I picked this shade as out of their naturals this was the nicest, it isn't too white that its harsh and scary looking but still pale enough to do the job I wanted. Butterscotch is very hard to swatch as it just doesn't show up on my hand. And being winter the darkness doesn't help! But its a very creamy beige with slight pink undertones, which I love as it makes it just that tad warmer. And white eyeshadow does give me nightmare of my teens when pale eyeshadow was so acceptable. Cringe.
The texture, for £1.79, is actually really nice, and applies wonderfully with great ease on my part, it is slightly crumbly in the pot, so don't jab your brush in, like I did! But, it doesn't go patchy or flakey once its on either. Another good factor with Natural Collection is that their product don't irritate my skin either, and this goes for this eyeshadow too, I can only describe it as just so gentle. Natural Collection are firmly back on my makeup radar thanks to this little pot of eyeshadow, and if your after a matte highlighter, this is perfect!
