Collection Eyeshadow Pencils

I've been a bad blogger. I don't often break the rules, but I have on this occasion.
 
I bought a new product & didn't photography it before using it. SHOCK HORROR.
Yes I know, cue the dirty looks..
 
I bought these two beauties about 2 weeks ago in town & stayed at James' for two days after purchasing them & didn't have my camera with me. I just couldn't resist trying them. So, I do apologise for the 'used' pictures. But doesn't it show how much love I have for them? I think so.
 
 
I picked up Vintage Blush & Hot Chocolate, two of the lovely shades Collection have released in these beautiful eyeshadow pencils. I bought them from Boots, currently on offer for £2.50, but I know they are also available in Superdrug for a similar price.

 
A lot of people have compared them to the Maybelline Colour Tattoo Eyeshadows, which is actually quite a fair judgement. However, I think I actually prefer these. They are half the price & are a lot easier to blend & apply.

 
I'm absolutely in love with both these shades. Vintage Blush is the perfect shade if your going for a natural day look & Hot Chocolate is for those summer evenings out with a glass of wine.

 
I've found both shades do last all day (they do sometimes show crease lines but you can easily blend them with your finger) & are incredibly pigmented. The only downside to them is you have to sharpen them, they don't come with a twisted base to push up the product, which is quite deceiving when you first see them. However, it's not going to stop me going back to Boots to stock up on more shades!
 
Have you tried these new eyeshadow pencils?
