Collection Beauty Bargains

So this week as I was browsing through Superdrug, I found myself fascinated with the Collection (previously known as Collection 2000, I believe), something which I never do! If you've read my posts you'll know I use little drugstore products, simply because I don't like the quality, and it doesn't appear to last on my skin. 
But as I searched the aisles, the Collection Contour Kit and Eyes Uncovered (nudes) really caught my attention. They were both on offer at the time - a bargain £2.66 each! With my added 10% student discount, this made them even cheaper. I couldn't pass the opportunity & thought it was worth the small amount of money.

Firstly the contour palette. It appears very similar to the Sleek kit, which I actually didn't get on well with. However the pay off and quality on my skin is an awful lot better. 
I have been wearing this to Uni and on nights out, so it has definitely been tested in different conditions. The bronzer is very matte which I lovely, slightly darker than Benefit Hoola, which allows it to give more of a contour affect. 
As for the highlight, its a beautiful colour and very flattering. The colour pay off is excellent and can also be used on the eyes for a shimmery effect.

The eye palette on first glance is beautiful. There was 3 types of palette available, however this looked most suited for me. As any palette, it comes with a sponge applicator, which to many peoples horror, I actually don't mind! I always use a sponge applicator for glitter shadows as I believe it picks up the most pigments. 
The colours are perfect for creating a dramatic evening look, or a natural daytime smokey eye. The majority of the colours have a shimmer, but the first lightest shade, and the last in the palette, the dark brown also are much more matte shades which are perfect for where they go on the eye. 
The colours have excellent colour pay off and are very well pigmented. The shadows last all day and blend easily. 

For two essential make up bag items, at a combined price of just over £4, these two are seriously worth investing in. For a very cheap drugstore brand the quality of these products is impeccable. I will definitely find myself looking out for treats in the Collection section more regularly!
