Eyeliner seems to be the weapon of choice of Miss Middleton so who are we to judge the power of a simple stroke of colour across the eye? As if by magic, Collection 2000 are set to launch a new range of Intense Colour khol pencils to coincide perfectly with the Big Day. These simple pencils come in six shades, including black, brown, green, teal, grey and blue, with a formula that’s easy to blend and really smooth to apply. You can get a really intense colour result (aha, that’s where the name came from) in one swipe of the khol and create a stand-out look.
The shades aren’t particularly revolutionary, but I feel a wave of new hues being launched in the not to distant future. They do have a tendency to smudge and move if you’re not careful – if you’re an eye rubber or hayfever sufferer you’d definitely want a primer and a dusting of powder to keep them in place. For £1.99 though you can’t go wrong – these would be perfect to stock up on if you’re going away or just in need of a spare set that you don’t mind shoving in your bag. I’m impressed with the colour and quality from a brand that’s charging less than my lunchtime sandwich!
These launch in May across Boots, Superdrug and other Collection 2000 stockists.
