Review: Collection Work The Colour Eye Pencils

I am forever on the look out for quirky new products that will provide me with something a bit different, whether that’s an eye base, a lip colour or a face product, I am always interested to see what I can do with different products. A lot of these types of items can be found on the various displays in Boots and Superdrug. Thus, introducing the Collection Work the Colour Eye Pencils.

We’ve all used eye pencils before but when we think of an eye pencil, we think of something to use on the waterline. The difference with these pencils is that they are a lot chunkier and actually designed to be used as eyeshadows on their own.

The three colours I picked up, from top to bottom, are Vintage Blush, Gunmetal Glitz and Hot Chocolate. To my knowledge, there are 3 other colours available but these are the 3 that caught my eye the most.

When I bought these, I expected them to be similar to the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils which are brilliant. To my surprise and utter delight, I loved these as soon as I used them. I decided first of all, to try them out as an eyeshadow base, to get an idea of how long they stay put and how pigmented they are. I was pleased to find that, as you can see above, the pigmentation from these pencils are excellent and the best thing is, you can blend them and sheer them out, proving how versatile they are.

I used Hot Chocolate first of all with a bit of Smog from Urban Decay dusted over the top and I loved how this pencil made my eyeshadow pop so much more. It made such a difference! I applied mine straight out of the tube onto my eye and then used my finger to blend it out which seemed to be the easiest way to go about it.

I had zero creasing whilst using these pencils which I was really impressed with. For £3.19 each, they are an absolute steal! I only hope they bring more out so I can try them. A couple of colours I’d love to see if they did would be a metallic khaki and a coral with gold undertones and I’d love to see how they went about matte pencils if they went down that route. They just need to hire me basically haha!

For people who are low maintenance or who like a quick and easy make-up looks, these would look amazing on their own as they are so pigmented. There is really no need to put anything over the top, I just did to experiment and I loved how it turned out.

You can purchase these from Boots and Superdrug for £3.19 each.

Have you tried these pencils? If so, what did you think of them? Let me know in the comments or tweet me at @beasbeautyblog.
