Natural Collection Solo Eyeshadows in Willow and Asteroid

Natural Collection at Boots is a brand I have been using on and off for years, like most people my age, Natural Collection was one of the first make up brands I started to use around aged 12-13 due to it's extremely reasonable pricing and overall natural and thus foolproof colour selection. Everything in the range is priced at £2 and under making it outstanding value and one of the cheapest high street brands available, and these two bargain Solo Eyeshadows have crept their way into my daily routine.

Willow, a cool-toned shimmery champagne, makes the perfect tear duct and brow brown highlighter and a brilliant base for following shadows. Its softy pigmented so gently brightens and awakens the eye when swept across the lid, or can even double up as a highlighter for the face! Think something along the lines of MAC Naked Lunch, and you get the idea.
Asteroid is that perfect neutral brown we're all searching for, it's a warm-toned shadow that's super soft and bendable. It boasts beautiful flecks of gold alongside a subtle shimmer throughout, creating a something quite eye-catching. Asteroid is little something between MAC Twinks and Bronze, but not as rich in pigment. 

On the lid, neither shade has spectacular pigmentation or staying power. But its something that I'm more than willing to over look considering the price, and can easily be fixed with with a touch of primer. I've been using either Urban Decay Primer Potion or Too Faced Shadow Insurance underneath and the shadow has stayed intact for the best part of a full working day. 

These shadows are available in store at Boots, and are priced at £1.79 or 3 for £5
