Hey Lovelies. First of all, sorry for the lack of posting in the last week and a half, I was home for Easter and have a lot of final year work to do! I finally found the time to review these gorgeous Collection Cosmetics 'Eyes Uncovered Palettes* in Nude and Nude Grey.

I love how small and compact these palettes are. They aren't as wide ranging as an Urban Decay Naked Palette, but they do the same job. They include little applicators that I haven't used since I prefer a brush, but for on the go use that's pretty handy. I wish they included a mirror, but the product wouldn't be as light. I love how you could take two of these in your handbag and it wouldn't weigh it down or take up too much space. The front is quite simple which I admire sometimes, simplicity is better than an luminous neon that is confusing to the eye.

I took these photos prior to going back after Easter hence why they look unused and unswatched. For the price, Collection Cosmetics always include pigmented shadows and you can't go wrong for £3.99. I prefer the Nude Grey Eyes Uncovered Palette since it looks more like my Urban Decay Naked Basics 2, the other looking like the UD N Basics palette. The shimmer in the shadows are subtle too. These are great for both daytime and nighttime use, with the Nude Grey palette versatile for creating a typical smokey eye look, or adding bronze shadows for a more wearable look for most people. The Nude Bronze palette is also available in Boots too.

Final Thoughts
Overall, these are a fabulous dupe for the Naked Basics palettes by Urban Decay. They are a tenth of the price and are quite pigmented and long lasting. If you're picky with eyeshadows and want an affordable palette, I would advise you check these out. I personally love Collection Cosmetics as they are one of the first brands I used to buy from when I first got into makeup at the age of 12/13, just like Barry M and Natural Collection. They produce other amazing products such as the well known blogger fave, the Lasting Perfection concealer which is my favourite too. You can buy these from both Boots and Superdrug.
