Natural Collection Blush Review

The Natural Collection blushes are being talked about everywhere lately, so I thought I would share my opinion on them.

I love these blushes, they are the blushes I am currently reaching for on a daily basis. I'm not crazy on the packaging but for certain products I am willing to look past the packaging if the product itself is good, so to me this doesn't matter so much.

These soft, non-shimmer powder blushes are very natural and give a nice hint of colour on your cheeks, they blend well and you don't need to apply too much product to get a good colour pay off.
I like that they are fragrance free as I have quite sensitive skin, so to me this is a plus!
They are very highly pigmented which I was not expecting as they are very cheap. They can be purchased from boots for £1.99 each.

My favourite colours from the collection are Sweet Cheeks, Rosey Glow and Peach Melba. (order in pictures)

Sweet Cheeks is a gorgeous pink colour, this is my favourite colour blush to wear in winter as this is when my skin tends to look quite dull. This adds a nice pop of colour to my cheeks to help brighten up my face. 

Rosey Glow is pinky/brown colour, it looks similar to Peach Melba only the colour is more pink than peach. I think this is the most natural looking blush that I have as the colour is not too pink looking. I think this colour is suitable to wear during any season.

Peach Melba is a beautiful peachy colour with brown undertones. I prefer to wear this in spring/summer as I like a more subtle 'glow' of colour on my cheeks and I feel this is when the colour works best with my skin tone.

If you prefer matte looking blushes over shimmer then I would recommend this collection and at the price they are, you can't go wrong!

I am wanting to try out cream blushes, have any of you tried them? What do you think of them?

    I actually have tried a cream blush, and for me, it didn't work. The cream blush did set in to the pores and little lines, and after a few hours, it just didn't look pretty... This review is really nice, and I am always on a look out for a good blush :)
    Good luck!
