Collection Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencils | Review


Hey girlie's!!

I recently picked up these gorgeous 'Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencils by Collection' and since I've fallen in love with them so much i just had to share the love ha ha.

I picked up 'Vanilla Sky' a pearly champagne colour and 'Hot Chocolate' a dark brown/bronze colour. There are 4 more shades in the collection but these 2 shades are the most wearable for me, i do love a good neutral smokey eye!!! 

Both the pencils are described to be 'blendable' and 'velvety soft' and i couldn't agree more, they are so creamy and easy to use. I'm all about getting my makeup on quick as I'm always rushing to get ready for work at silly o'clock in the morning and i also need my makeup to be long lasting as i never really have time for touch ups during a working day and these pencils are fabulous for both aspects, the creamy formula makes application super quick as you can just blend with your finger and the fact that these are also waterproof makes them super long lasting without a smudge in sight. The feel and texture of these creamy pencils really reminds me of a Mac Paint Pot as I'm applying, but id say they definitely last longer than the paints pots (they wear off and crease on me). 

When applying these i did find you have to work quite quick as once they set, they set!! I really did expect creasing from these, i have oily eyelids anyway and cream eye shadows usually always crease on me but noooo.... they literally don't budge.


'Vanilla Sky' and 'Hot Chocolate'



As you can see from the swatches the 'Eyeshadow Pencils' are super pigmented and have a beautiful pearly shimmer finish. I find both of these pencils to be super versatile, i even used 'Hot Chocolate' on my waterline and it didn't budge all day. These are also super affordable at £3.19 each, all though there was an offer on when i brought mine and they where £2.50 each then, what a beauty steal. Both of these are definitely the kind of products id reach for everyday and are now pride of place in my everyday makeup bag. Whether you want to use them as a base or a quick neutral look you wont be disappointed.

Have you tried these gorgeous eye shadow pencils?? What did you think??
