No7 The Eye Collection eyeshadow and brush set – I need to start by saying the eyeshadows are very shimmery! They are also quite sheer.
All of the shades come up very bright on me – you can’t see the gold (which I almost expected as my eyelids are golden), the silver is very silver and the darker grey is just about visible as a darker shade! It was difficult to do a traditional smoky eye with this set alone. I would need to tone down the shimmer with some matte eyeshadows.
As for the brushes, for me, the Smokey Eyeliner brush is a little too soft. I prefer a firmer eyeliner brush. I will use this brush for blending eyeliner to give a softer look. The Eyeshadow Blend and Contour brush is also very soft and fluffy, and quite wide in my view so better for blending than the application of eyeshadow. I have to say, as a blending brush, I really like it.
So, I have acquired two blending brushes and a lot of shimmer!
