Collection 2000 Metallic Cream Eyeshadows Review && Swatches

These creamy molten metal eye shadows by Collection 2000 are amazingly versatile and easy to manipulate. Perfect for the beginner or those with more experience.

These cream eye shadows are quite unique in that they come in packaged in a lipgloss esque container and with dainty a doe foot applicator. Great for application on the go, popping into your handbag for a day to night transformation. I’ve been addicted to these the last few weeks as they’re so adaptable, I’ve used them together, on their own, as liquid liner or as an all over wash of colour. The packaging is adorable and you can easily see what colour the formula is which is perfect for a quick selection. The best part is how affordable they are, just £2.99.Bargain! A couple of shades wont set you back much, definitely an inexpensive must have.

There are 6 colour choices available Rock Pool an electric blue, Copper Pot a deep copper, Platinum Bling a slightly purple silver, Gold Rush a liquid gold, Rock N Rose a cool toned pink and Emerald City a gorgeous green.

THE FORMULA

The cream forumla is quite wet but easy to apply, blend and work with. I find that to increase the intensity of the colour a few layers are needed but the results are worth it. The even finish is rich and gives a multidimensional metallic appearance. They dry fast and last all day without creasing! Amazing!

THE COLOUR PAY OFF

The pigmentation is variable depending on how you apply the shadow. For an opaque finish apply more product onto your lid and blend less but for a sheerer finish simply add less product and blend more. The product can be applied and blend with a brush or a finger, which ever you feel more confident with.

THE SHADES

Copper Pot - This is a medium copper, with slight bronzy tones.


Emerald City – Rich dark forest green with golden undertones. It looks amazing on brown eyes!


Platinum Bling - a slight 'dirty' silver, not as dark as gunmetal, but not as bright as silver.


Gold Rush – Slightly rose gold toned light gold

Rock n Rose – A gorgeous dusty metallic pink with silver undertones


Platinum Bling, Copper Pot, Rock n Rose, Gold Rush and Emerald Green

Have you tried these? What did you think and whats your favourite? My most used shade has to been Emerald Green, its gorgeous! I tend to shy away from green eye shadows but i'm loving my new found obsession :)
