Natural Collection Mascara Review

One coat pictured

When I first started wearing makeup my stash pretty much consisted of cheaper brands like Natural Collection, MUA and Collection 2000 because as a 13 year old it was all I could really afford to keep repurchasing. Now a little older, I'm able to get more expensive brands but I always come back to my Natural Collection mascaras purely because I believe they work the best for me. I've tried numerous Rimmel, Maybelline, Mac and even Armani mascaras and none work better than these beauties at £1.99 a pop.

I wear reading glasses. I use them for about 7 hours each day while I'm at school. Anyone with glasses will know how annoying it is trying to find mascaras and false eyelashes that don't a) scrape your lenses and leave a huge black mess every time you bat your lashes and b) leave you looking like you've applied 200 coats of mascara that morning. I really do believe that this mascara gives me the perfect length, thickness and curl I've been looking for, all in one mascara too! But I'll show you the pictures and let you decide for yourself.

Sorry for the absence of the photo of the wand, its disappeared somewhere along the process. With the wand you do get a bit of excess on the tip but its easily dabbed away. The wand is quite fine and therefore eliminates the risk of major clumping. Any lumps or bumps you do find are extremely easily brushed out (I recommend the Tweezerman Lash Comb) In the photo I didn't brush them out, just to give you a true sense of how it initially applies. The smell is a little synthetic, however I struggle to find a mascara that isn't.

The Natural Collection mascaras come in 5 types - Lash Length (pictured), Lash Curl, and Lash Build, Lash Care and Waterguard with both 'Black' and 'Brown/Black' colouring available in all. Minus the Lash Build, I own all of these. My favourites being the Waterguard and Lash Length. Boots almost always have a 3 for £5 deal on their NC cosmetics too! You could be getting 6 mascaras for the price of one average Maybelline or Rimmel one!



  1. It looks lovely :) x

  2. I have this mascara and love it too, only thing it doesn't have a long life but what can you expect from paying £1.99, also their pressed powders, blushers and concealers are good too!

    Love Emily x

  3. Is it waterproof and does it last long ?
    Thanks : D
