I have a pretty little blusher to share with you all today - Natural Collection blusher in 'Peach Melba'. Natural Collection is available from Boots and the blushers cost a mere £1.99 (bargain!).
Natural Collection isn't necessarily a brand i tend to go-to, due to bad experiences when i was young girl, but i'd heard so many good things about this blusher that obviously i had to give it a go.
The first thing i noticed about this product to be honest was the flimsy, plastic packaging. It's not very sturdy but i guess you're only paying £2 so you can't complain too much. On the shelves most of the blusher pans had come loose from the pot so i had to search for one that was all sealed! But, if you can cope with the not-so-great packaging then i think you're on to a winner.
The powder is milky, soft to the touch. Literally so smooth and soft! Due to the softness it does produce a bit of fallout in the pan but if you tap that up on your brush then there is no problem what so ever.
As you can see, it's a dusky, mauve pink shade with a peach undertone (hence the name). It's so versatile - it literally does look different on everyone! On me, it looks very natural you really cannot tell i am wearing blusher it just adds a healthy flush of colour which i personally love. It's good for those you days where you have dramatic eyes or lips so don't want too much on the cheeks. I find myself reaching for this on nights out. The pigmentation isn't the best but nor is it bad. It just depends how bright you want it too look. I think on dark skintones it may look a bit ashy as it would look a little pale, it's more suited to light/medium skintones.
However, you can't really go wrong for £1.99 it's a great addition to my collection as it's probably the most natural coloured blusher i own! It's also nice and compact to shove in your makeup bag to take out and about with you. After all, if it breaks or gets lost you've only lost £1.99 and not the prices of MAC or NARS.
Have you tried this shade or any others from Natural Collection? What do you think?
