Collection Eyes Uncovered Palettes - Review & Swatches

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.

'Nude'

'Nude Grey'

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!

  25. I have one the Naked Basics palette which is great so I've been eyeing up #2, but I can't seem to bring myself to spend that much on such a similar palette...I'll have to give one of these a try - £3.99 is nuts!

  26. Oh my, need to get Nude when it comes out! I am looking for a good nude palette, and didn't want to spend a fortune on Naked.

  35. Thank you for the honest review. A lot of brands have been putting out similar palettes and they just don't make the cut at all. If anyone is looking for an alternative affordable product, I would strongly suggest looking into L'oreal infalliable single eyeshasows they are so beautiful and pigmented.

  52. I just purchased my first Collection product this week, their concealer after hearing rave reviews. Here in NZ, it's only available to buy in a Supermarket chain which initially put me off but everything I hear about this brand is great and I'm loving the concealer. Looks like some great colours included in these palettes too!

    I just put up a new post on what I don't like about make up, do any of you agree with me or am I just too fussy?
