Advantages: Good colour
Disadvantages: Doesn't last very well
I have the biggest lip gloss and lip balm collection known to man, but I don't own very many lipsticks. When I saw this lipstick in Boots, and its £1.99 price tag, I thought I would give it a go. I decided on the colour Rose Bud, but it does come in a number of different colours. This Moisture Shine lipstick has been in every Boots store I have visited, but when I tried to search it online, it didn't come up, so I think this is only available in shops. This lipstick is also fragrance free and the tube says that it gently moisturises the lips.
My Thoughts - When I first apply this lipstick, the first thing that strikes me is the colour. Although this is a relatively cheap lipstick, the colour is actually well pigmented. I went for one of the lighter colours in the range, but found that on my lips it looks slightly darker. There is no fragrance to this lipstick and I like that, as sometimes fragranced products can irritate my skin. The texture of this lipstick is very creamy and soft. It goes on very easily and doesn't drag on my skin. As for the moisture shine claim, I do think that this product lives up to his name. On my lips, this does have a shine to it. Its not glossy, but does have a slight sheen which I really like. I have always hated the dry, cracked appearance of some of the lipsticks I have used in the past. Also, the shape of the actual stick is perfect for accurate application, so I can get right to the edges of my lips. Sometimes, if I want a softer colour, or an almost lip stain effect, I use my finger to dab some of the colour onto my lips.
Disadvantages - The only disadvantage I found with this is that it doesn't last very long. I do find myself having to reapply often especially after eating and drinking, but given the price tag, I don't mind too much.
Overall, I do really like this product and I would repurchase it. Even though I have to reapply often, I haven't used too much of it and as the Natural Collection brand is easy to get hold of, I would be able to repurchase easily.
Summary: Good value for money
