Natural beauty

I have have been using mostly natural body care products lately, the difference in my skin has been dramatic. My skin is soo soft and smooth, I used to have dry and extremely itchy skin. I am so glad I made the change and now want to try more natural products. Since I have been interested in other beauty products that are more natural, I decided to trial some more natural cosmetics and see how they compare to my usual make up.

Most of these products were purchased from a discount website, at very low prices for around a pound or two at the very most.

I recently found out UNE is actually Bourjois, I instantly became more interested in this range. UNE is also completely nautral and has no nasty ingredients, its a shame as I have been informed this brand used to be sold in Boot's but not any more.

All the colours on this range are beautiful, I don't think there was one shade I wound not wear. So I clicked a few variations to try and every item I selected turned out to be lovely.

Lip Toned Colour L02
Lip Toned Colour L03
Lip Toned Colour L23

L-R Bottom row
Sheer Lips Balm S12
Sheer Lips Balm S03
Sheer Lips Balm S08

The mascara pictured was from a beauty box, I included it in this trial because its a natural formula.

Breezy Cheeks Blush #B03
The formula is creme and absolutely beautiful, its a cream to satin finish, oh and the colour, its a gorgeous gentle pink, the swatch below is quite thick but can be sheered out. I love the colour and would love a lipstick in the same shade. In fact I may try this as a lip product, you never know, it may work.

Healthy Glow Mineral Powder #H06
This is a powdered product, the pigmentation is good and blends well on my skin. It offers the perfect amount of colour for my pale skin tone, without that horrid orange hue.

Eye Brow Pencils #B01
I am really happy with the shade, it took me a while to decide on the shade to pick. The pencil is quite a powdery finish, some pencils can be waxy, this is not like that.

I could not resist these 2 little travel sized brushes, they were only around a pound or so each, I am yet to try them yet. I will most certainly be taking them on my holidays, excellent size for travel.

I will be doing a face of the day soon using only natural products, and comparing its application and wear time to that of my other make up products.
