Review: Collection Eyeshadow Pencil in Hot Chocolate

You know when you want to wear make-up but can't really be bothered? This is my favourite product for that purpose. A little while ago I did a review on the Collection Eyeshadow Pencil in a different shade, (which you can read here) Vintage Blush, which is the most lovely vintage pink. I use it a lot, mostly all over the lid and underneath the eye a little but recently I've found myself wearing the Collection Eyeshadow Pencil in Hot Chocolate more often than usual.

Like Vintage Blush, the packaging is exactly the same. It is a fat pencil/crayon which has a chunky nib to it. This has its pros and cons, for instance the chunky nib makes it easy to draw all over the lid as a base but it can get a little messy when trying to get into the smaller, tricker areas of the eye and it's slightly tricky when you want to get a slim, even line.

Also, like Vintage Blush, the packaging says the eyeshadow pencil is "a velvety, soft blendable eyeshadow pencil which is waterproof and long lasting" which I agree with to an extent. They are so long lasting and because they are waterproof they literally stay put all day. The one con to this is that if you make a mistake with the pencil you can't rectify it, nor can you blend it like the packaging suggests as they are so resistant.

Hot Chocolate is a deep chocolatey brown with a really subtle taupe-like shimmer throughout. I love Hot Chocolate as not only does it look fab all over the eyelid but I also love it just as an eyeliner underneath the eye as it is such a strong colour that I find it is so much more stronger and striking than using regular eyeliner pencils. Overall I still absolutely adore these Collection Eyeshadow Pencils. They last all day, can be used in different ways, are super cheap and best of all, they come in 6 fabulous colours. In fact, I already have another lined up to review!
