Brand of the Week #1 Collection - Eyeshadow Pencils

Vintage blush, Hot chocolate, Vanilla sky & Midnight Glam

Happy Monday beauties! 
I just thought I would explain a little before I move on to the review , I'm currently starting a new series exciting! I've decided to feature one brand for one week now and again, this week and the brand I am starting with is Collection! I've become obsessed with their affordable and good quality make-up! Let me know what you think? and any brands you would like me to feature :)

When I first spotted these in superdrug I knew they had to be mine, I'd never seen anything quiet like them so I was really excited to try them out. I picked up four shades...

Vintage blush - A gorgeous rosie pink blush shade.
Hot chocolate - A chocolate brown with golden undertones.
Vanilla sky - A creamy vanilla colour with a stuble golden undertone.
Midnight glam- A black with a grey base not what I would call a true black. 

I would also just like to add they all contain a stuble shimmer but instead of making them look bitty/gritty it adds a metalic look.

The formula is so soft! They remind me of huge kohl eyeliners but with a sliky touch. I used Vanilla Sky, Hot chocolate and Midnight glam to create the bottom look. The only thing I would say is they are really hard to blend together it too me a long time for it to look decently blended and in the process I lost quiet a lot of pigment from Hot chocolate but on the plus side these babies are waterproof so they are really long lasting especially with my watery eyes I would say the lash line colour lasted a good 3 hours on my eyes which is a mean feat in its self! 

You can buy these at Superdrug for £2.50 each or you can buy them online at the Collection website for just over £3! Have you tried any Collection Eyeshadow Pencils?
