Collection "Bedazzled" Palette! ♥

While shopping recently, i decided to pick up the Collection Bedazzled Eyeshadow Palette (£4.19) as i loved the Smokey eye version. I thought it would be ideal for nights out as glitter can be a great way of adding that extra bit of glam into a look. But, in the end i was very disappointed. 

I found the shades to be very poorly pigmented, resulting in me having to continually reapply to build up any colour except with two shades (the bronze and the purple). As you can see from the photo, these aren't all that shimmery or glittery at all. All the glitter in the pan seems to just disappear as soon as you apply the eyeshadow to the skin except with the silver, which was very glittery. I chose this palette because it had a range of colours i was really excited to try, especially the black and the teal. Unfortunately, the black was very chalky and took several swatches to become opaque. The shadows weren't long lasting - they flaked off for the most part within an hour or two. All in all, i was very disappointed. I went into this with high hopes, hoping it would be as good as their smokey palette, but sadly i couldn't get this to work for me at all. This is the first Collection product I've had a problem with. 

Have you tried this product? What did you think? Tell me in the comments!
Lots of love,

  1. What a shame they're so poorly pigmented, there are some really nice colors in this palette :( <3

  2. I completely agree with you, I didn't expect the color to last all day but at least that I would get some color - not just glitter... :o) Xx

  3. I felt the same way when I tried them for the first time.. Have you tried using them on a damp applicator? It really makes a difference... :)
