UNE Natural Beauty: Final thoughts

After my initial Une purchase I decided to go out and take advantage of the 3 for 2 at Boots again.
I got the following eyeshades (£8.99 each), Sfumato 09 (brown), Nude eyes 13 (warm brown nude, cream shadow). Glimmer eyes 16 (really pretty shimmer infused slightly golden brown, cream shadow).

Unfortunately the cream shades crease on me, with or without a base. The powder shadows, although they are not that pigmented they do blend and last well. Although I like natural shades, I think there is potential for these to look a bit murky/sludgy.

I got Lip toned colour Lipsticks in shades L02,L06,L07 (£7.99 each). The colours are basically different tones of natural lip colour. L02 is a nude pink,L06 is a warmer pink ,L07 is deeper and more brown based pink/rose.
If your searching for a “your lips but better colour” its definitely worth taking a look at these, I don’t think they exceed my other lipsticks but for the price they are quite good. They are quite creamy and lasting ability is average. In terms of all the Une products I have bought these had the best pigmentation.

In hindsight I wished I had just got the Two-tone lipsticks instead of all the other stuff, but the 3 for 2 offer was just screaming at me. As such if you are going to try something from the range I’d recommend them. Although I like the concept of the range, I can’t help feeling they would fare better with adding a few more colours to the line up, instead of falling into the natural ingredients must equate to natural/neutral colours of makeup, as I do feel like a lot of the colours are extremely similar to each other.
