Collection Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencil Review

Hello everyone!

I'm sure you have all heard a lot about the Collection Work The Colour eyeshadow pencils, and if you haven't - where have you been hiding?! After reading a couple of reviews on this product, I decided I would try it out for myself and picked one up. I chose to get the shade 'Gunmetal Glitz', purely because I was going out that night and wanted to create a nice smokey eye. After hearing that these are creamy, extremely pigmented, long-lasting and easily blendable, I was expecting a lot from this product... but, I was disappointed! 

At only £3.19, this product is an absolute bargain and I would say it is definitely worth the money, despite my displeasure! After swatching it (see below) I was pleasantly surprised, it does give a deeply pigmented and creamy consistency, and it seemed to be incredibly blendable. But, when applying this product to my eyelids, it all seemed to go on a downward spiral. 

Now, I'm not sure whether I just have annoying eyelids or maybe I'm even applying it wrong, but I found I had to push far too hard on my eyelid to get enough product on to even be able to blend it. My poor little (or big) eyeball just can't handle too much pressure, so I found it took me AGES to get enough product to work with. Then, when it came to blending, I found that it just didn't want to budge! It just stayed pretty much the same as how I drew it on - which isn't a good look. After some hard work and about 15 minutes later, I managed to get a decent looking smokey eye... but I was not impressed in the slightest. My advice is, if you're going to use this product, use it as a base for your eyeshadow. I have found that it works well that way, but just this product on it's own, especially for the outer eyelid and crease, just doesn't work for me at all!

I don't think I have read one bad review on this product, so I'm slightly nervous about posting this. Has anyone else found this product to not be all it's made out to be?! 

Please comment below your thoughts on this product, and any tips on how you use it :)
