Collection Eyeshadow Pencils.

Collection Eye Shadow Pencils in:
Hot Chocolate
Vintage Blush

I was so excited when I saw these in Superdrug a few weeks back. They are pretty new to the Collection stand and I knew I just had to give them a go. If you know me, you'll know I have pretty sensitive eyes and I wear contact lenses so I generally avoid using an eyeshadow. I'm also pretty awful at eye make up and tend to just stick with mascara to be on the safe side. However, these are so, so easy to use and have become part of my make up routine.

The pigmentation is amazing for the tiny price tag of £2.50 (I think that is the intro price), I only did one 'swipe' with each to get the colours above. I love the Vintage Blush, I actually search three Superdrug stores for it, it must be popular! It's so simple yet really sophisticated when it's on and it's the perfect colour to use as a highlight if you didn't want it all over. I find these blend really well initially but because they are waterproof, once they're in place they ain't budging. The fact they are waterproof does mean they have amazing lasting power and will certainly not need topping up throughout the night. I even wore these in the Turkish heat and they were still in place before bed time.

Have you tried any of these? I'm dying to try the Vanilla Sky!
