Review: Collection Work The Colour Nude Eye Palette

Collection Nude Eye Palette - £3.99
You know me, I do love a nude eyeshadow. I have used my MUA Heaven & Earth Palette down to the bone and was uhmming and ahhing over splurging on an Urban Decay Naked Palette to help satisfy my nude eyeshadow cravings. Whilst deliberating, I came across the Collection Nude Eye Palette in Boots for £2.99 when it was on offer. I didn't expect it to be up to Urban Decay's standards but I decided to give it a try to see what it was like. And unfortunately, I'm a bit on the fence about it.

I hadn't heard or seen anything about it before I bought it, nor had I seen anyone review it so I was a bit unsure about what to expect. The eyeshadows are encased in a cardboard box like case which has a magnetic opening so it won't open when it's in your bag which is good. There are 8 eyeshadows and 1 cream highlighter inside that are all a great size which ensures it's great value for money in that aspect. Also in the case is a little plastic foam eyeshadow wand which is no good to anyone and should be thrown away immediately.

The back of the case shows you ways you can use the eyeshadows together which is a great idea if you're a bit unsure on how to wear them together. Swatches: In each photo the eyeshadows go from 1 - 3, left to right, with the highlighter being in the first photo in the middle.

 All of the shades took an awful lot of layers before they became remotely visible on the skin. I found that the lighter shades were barely visible at all and the highlighter really wasn't noticeable at all. I liked the lighter brown shades, those are the eyeshadows I would most likely use on a regular basis. I liked the first and the second dark shades but I found the third one to be really lack lusture. My favourites are by far the eyeshadows on the second row but in all honesty, they don't compare to MUA's Heaven & Earth Palette
I'll use this palette as a way to build up stronger, bolder eyeshadows but overall, I found the majority of them to be really disappointing with one or two being a nice wash of colour, although you really will need to build them up to get a noticeable colour. For £3.99 it won't break the bank but if you wanted a nice nude palette you should pop in to Superdrug and buy MUA's Heaven & Earth Palette.

  1. That's a shame, Collection's products are usually not too bad. I do love the MUA palette though too!
