Collection Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencil - £3.19

I've recently been trying out quite a few new eyeshadow products to experiment with & practice different looks. I'm often at the Collection stall to pick up a new Lasting Perfection Concealer & I spotted these on offer for £2.50 so I thought I'd pick one up. The eyeshadow pencils come in 6 shades but I opted for the champagne golden shade called Vanilla Sky.

When I swatched these in Boots they applied really smoothly so I was a little disappointed when I tried to apply this onto my eyelids & it seemed to drag a lot. Now that the pencil has been used a bit it has softened up & is much easier to apply, first impressions weren't great but I'm glad I didn't give up with it. It's a lovely shimmery shade, similar to MAC paint pot in Bare Study, that can be worn alone or built up with other colours to create a smokey eye. I've also used it as a brow bone highlighter & it has worked really well. I will say though that you need to be quick when working with this product otherwise it seems to stick & literally won't budge! I also tend to use my fingers to blend this in as the heat from my finger tips melts the product slightly allowing me to blend it evenly. As I mentioned, once this product is in place it doesn't move at all, the staying power is amazing & my eye makeup lasts all day.
Have you tried these Collection Eyeshadow Pencils?
