Collection Eyeshadow Stick in Vintage Blush Review


Collection Eyeshadow Stick in Vintage Blush


I am a massive fan of the Collection Work the Colour Eyeshadow Pencils and I currently have 3 in my collection; Vanilla Sky, Vintage Blush and Midnight Glam. Many brands offer eyeshadow pencils although I have only tried the Rimmel and Collection ones.

Firstly lets talk about the packaging, its is a chunky pencil but what I like about this range is that the pencil corresponds to the colour of the product it makes it a lot easier to find when you've got a big collection of eyeliners and eyeshadow pencils. One of the downsides to the packaging is that you need to sharpen these which can be messy. It would have been better if you were able to twist it up like you can with the chubby lip crayons.

Vintage Blush is a gorgeous shimmery rose gold pink. This works really well as a base for other pink shadows or just as an all over colour on the lid. One of the reasons that I like eyeshadow pencils so much is because they are quick to apply and require little effort. The range of colours that Collection offers is really good, there are 6 colours in the range and all of them are quite wearable colours. The only colour that I am not interested in is the blue but I have my eye one the brown and the grey. I find with some ranges available they don't have many wearable colours but this range is really impressive not only are most of the colours really wearable they are quite unique. I have never seen a drugstore brand do a colour like this before.

The formula of these eyeshadow pencils is very smooth and creamy. It dries quite quickly so you do need to blend quickly although it is very easy to blend. The pencil is very pigmented and you don't need to press too hard to apply the product. I have read that some people have found that there's has snapped however this has not happened to me. Once you have applied these they will last all day and they won't smudge.

These are very affordable at just £3.19 although they are often on offer so you can get a good deal on them. As I mentioned above I am interested in adding the bronze and grey to my collection as I know I would get a lot of wear out of them. 

Have you tried these? What do you think?
