Natural Collection Lipstick in 'Sorbet'



(please do excuse the poor photos, didn't realise until editing!)

It's probably no surprise to you all that I'm a pretty large fan of the Natural Collection at Boots, whether that be their bath and body products or cosmetics. I recently bought some lipsticks (one product I hadn't actually tried yet!) as the amount of positive reviews they've had is overwhelming. First up, sorbet, a bold bright coral in the bullet, but a pretty soft coral with tiny flecks of gold shimmer on the lips. For me, the shade of this is my beloved Buxom 'Destiny' Lipgloss in a lipstick, which makes them P-E-R-F-E-C-T together! I love the fact you can really build this up, from a sheer wash over the lips to stop you looking washed out, or layered on to create the bold bright colour shown in the bullet (as shown in the two swatches below). It really is a perfect lipstick, especially for those who don't think they suit bold lips!


'Sorbet' is part of the Moisture Shine collection which generally consists of more natural shades with less pigment but more moisturisation. I can definitely agree with these claims, it slicks on just like a lip balm and has the staying power of a tinted lip balm too! One thing I would say is really do not go off the colour on the end of the packaging as in all occasions of me buying these lipsticks the bullet by no means matches the paper swatch, be sure to use the testers where available!


Natural Collection cosmetics, for those who aren't aware are a measly £1.99 per product exclusively at Boots. Often, 3 for 2 or 3 for £5 offers run on the line, making them the perfect cost effective cosmetics! Although I can't give anything but positive reviews for this shade, it isn't the same story for other shades.
Ready for round two?
