My Review of Collection Eyes Uncovered Palette in Nude Grey with photos and swatches
Collection Eyes Uncovered Palette in Nude Grey allows you to create a cool toned eye for a defined and sultry evening look. Choose from six different shades (Parchment, Rubble, Under the Moon, Drift Wood, In A Nutshell and Eclipse).
I really like Collection (or Collection 2000 as it was called, still getting used to that). I bought an eyeliner pen (Extreme!) and while it wasn’t the best liner in the world (it’s in my eyeliner review- Here-not dark enough) it was cheap and cheerful. I keep going back to the Collection stand and grabbing little bits that I “need” and don’t want to spend lots of cash on. Like their loose powder
It’s perfectly light and non cakey. I was using Bare Minerals and I found it made me look wrinkly- quelle horreur! I also got a brow kit, and this eyeliner palette. Collection is so bargainous, everything is £3.99 at the moment on an offer in Boots.com, but it’s never expensive eg. Foundation is £5.99.
The Eyes Uncovered palette in grey consists of 6 neutral shades. One matte white, one matte black, the other four have a shimmer to them- two taupe and two grey.
What really appealed to me initially about Eyes Uncovered is how very soft the powder is. So soft. The packaging feels very light and a bit cheapo, it’s made of card, I can’t see it being very hard wearing. I think all the £3.99 went on the eyeshadow, that’s fine. The pigmentation is good especially the black. The shimmer shades pack a bit of punch too.
The matte white is good for using under the brow as a highlight. The shadow is lovely and blendable. The shimmer shades are great for blending into the eye crease.
There is some creasing after a few hours, you must use a good eyeshadow primer first.
- The price
- The quality of the powder- soft, buildable, pigmented
- Useful shades
- Packaging is low quality
- It will crease after a few hours
Collection does a few other Eyes Uncovered palettes- nude, bronze, purple, rose and smoky grey. I might have to get a couple more!
Collection Eyes Uncovered in Nude Grey gets a solid 8/10, how jolly.
