Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencil- Review ❤

Hi everyone!
 Recently I spotted that Collection cosmetics were two for £5 on certain products in my local supermarket. I picked up two of the Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencil's. I picked these up in the hope that they are similar to the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils that I hope to be purchasing shortly. The shades I have are Vanilla Sky & Gunmetal Glitz. 

I picked these two colours as I thought Vanilla Sky would suit the inner corner highlight in a neutral look and Gunmetal Glitz would add some edge to a smoky eye. I must say I am thoroughly impressed with these products. I love both colours and would definetly repurchase the other shades. The product is creamy on application but sets nicely and doesn't smudge. I think the product may be a little harder to blend than the Maybelline Colour Tattoo's but can be done. The pigmentation and pay-off with these is amazing, you do not need a lot of this product to create your desired look. My favourite out of the two I purchased has to be Gunmetal Glitz as I am a fan of the darker smokey eye. I am going to use Vanilla Sky as a base for the majority of my eye shadows as it can be blended out to a natural cream. 

This product also comes in a pink shade and a deep blue. The one big advantage for this product for me is the lasting power, I have combination/oily skin and these stay perfectly on my eyes. I normally use an ELF eye primer for under my eye shadow but I feel it wouldn't be a suitable base for this product. I would recommend these to anyone, for the price they are a total bargain and easy to apply on the go. 

I have swatched both shades below: 

Keep smiling! xx


  1. I'm so happy to hear that it's a long lasting product, it's always an extra bonus. I guess I'm not really that surprised since I really like some of Collection's other products and they definitely stay put all day :O). Xx


  2. I have all of the colours in the range :) I love vanilla sky and use it every day for the inner corner of my eye! I need to use the others more as they are really great xx
    Lovely post :D xx

  3. Liking Gunmetal Glitz, think I might treat myself to this one! Great post :)
