I've been trying out these new palettes from budget beauty brand Collection for the past couple of weeks. I resisted the temptation to post about these straight away (which I wanted too, because let's face it, they look exciting, and they swatch really nicely!) However I wanted to give them a proper test run, as good swatches don't always mean great wear time...
I'm really pleased to report that these didn't dissapoint...
They aren't better than the Naked palettes by any stretch of the imagination. Urban Decay's shadow formulation beats most brands due to their impeccable payoff and blend-ability so they are a hard competitor, but these are really quite nice. A great budget beauty buy for those looking for an every day 'do-it-all' palette that won't break the bank.
They come in three different colour-ways (Nude, Nude Grey and Nude Bronze) I only have Nude and Nude Grey, but both are lovely. The formula is soft, blends nicely and has decent payoff. They are great for every day and compact enough to fit in your handbag. Nude is more of an everyday palette, with lots of paler tones, while Nude Great can take you from day to evening as it has some great deep, smokey shades in there too.
The best part? The price of course! These are a mere £3.99. An absolute bargain considering you get 6 decent sized shadows in each palette, all of which are beautiful, wearable shades.
These hit shelves next Wednesday (11th Feb) in Superdrug, and 18th Feb in Boots. Well worth a look if you're on the hunt for a new everyday staple!
