The Collection Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencil in Vanilla Sky was a total impulse purchase for me whilst browsing my local boots. I swear I can't walk past a Boots and not buy anything! In my defence, it was pretty hard to resist as it was on offer for £2.50! Unfortunately that offer has now ended but it is on a buy one get one half price offer, which is still pretty good if you think about it. I have wanted to try out an eyeshadow pencil for ages, since the hype around the Clinique Chubby Stick Tint for eyes, but I thought the price was a bit steep and although so many highstreet brands have brought out cheaper versions, I have only just got round to trying one out now!
I have the Collection Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencil in Vanilla Sky which is a shimmery white shade. There aren't any big chunky pieces of glitter and it applies really smoothly onto the eyelid and blends like a dream! For me, the shade is a little too shimmery and bright to be worn on the eyelid alone, but used as a base under other eyeshadows it looks amazing, it also stays put all day and doesn't crease, which is definitely a plus! I do really enjoy using this as an inner corner highlight and on the waterline, it really makes my eyes look a lot brighter!
My only slight concern with this product is that it isn't a twisty pencil so you do have to sharpen it, which I do find a bit annoying because who owns a massive pencil sharpener?! It also wastes product, although this isn't exactly expensive so it's not a massive deal, just a bit of hassle really! I did try to take pictures of this on my eyes but the photos just weren't giving this pencil justice, so now I just have a load of selfies on my camera ;)
Have you tried any of these Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencils, which one do you like the look of? I've definitely got my eye on the shade Hot Chocolate!
