Collection Eyes Uncovered Eyeshadow Palette: Worth the Hype?

When Collection released their Eyes Uncovered Eyeshadow palettes, everyone started raving about them. I saw reviews everywhere and at only £3.99 a pop, my interest was piqued. Out of the three shade variants, I chose Nude Bronze.

As the name would suggest, Nude Bronze is a neutral bronze palette containing 6 shades in a shimmer finish. The intense pigmentation and creamy texture is consistent throughout the palette. The only shade I personally wouldn't wear as much is the very end shade. It's slightly too cool for me and is a bit tough to blend. 

L-R: Ivory, Mink, Ochre, Golden Brown, Ember and Nutty
My first time wearing them, I didn't prime my lids and it was a very hot day. These shadows lasted about 6 hours before they went patchy and started to disappear. For a palette at this price point, that is amazing. 

I then used them with a primer and it was an even better experience. They blended better, applied more evenly and lasted the entire day. My favourite shades are Ochre and Ember. I love wearing them alone, but when you layer them, you get the most stunning rose gold. Mink is also a favourite of mine and looks particularly good when applied wet all over the lid. The shimmer in all the shades in very fine and actually quite sophisticated. 

I have to say, the Collection Eyes Uncovered Nude Bronze Palette is absolutely worth the hype and I definitely want to try the other shade variants. It's a brilliant bargain too. Six colours for £3.99! I think Collection have Uncovered a real gem. See what I did there? #sorrynotsorry

Have you tried any of the Collection Eyes Uncovered palettes?
