British Beauty Blogger Eye Pencil Kit* £15.00
Blogger and YouTuber collections have sprung up everywhere this year and each time a new one is announced I feel incredibly proud that we live in a world where "internet people" are able to have their own beauty lines, books etc. The collaboration that has had me most excited this year is the British Beauty Blogger collaboration with Marks & Spencer.
Jane from British Beauty Blogger is a lady I admired long before I started my own blog. She is always first with beauty news, honest in her reviews and not afraid to say what she truly thinks. One of my favourite things about Jane is that she supports and champions the blogging industry, she's come from beauty journalism through to blogging so seriously knows her stuff. I met her for the first time over a year ago and was a tiny bit starstruck and thrilled that I was meeting one of my 'blogging idols'. She's an amazing woman so I'm over the moon that one of the biggest British brands has teamed up with her to launch a limited edition make up collection.
Jane and M&S worked with illustrator Nuno da Costa, the man behind Jane's blog header, to create a collection with beautiful packaing that would appeal to every woman. I love how the packaging of the Eye Pencil Kit is so simple but so striking! The Eye Pencil Kit contains 8 kohl pencils in a mixture of finishes and shades, there is definitely a pencil for every occasion.
The shades include a matte black, shimmer mint green, a bronze plum mix, matte grey, shimmer turqouise, black with glitter, a shimmer/metallic lilac and a matte navy.
The shades I'm not sure on are the mint, lilac and turqouise because I'm not brave enough but I'll be giving them a go in the summer time. The pencils are very pigmented and easy to work with. The texture is great as they aren't to hard that they drag or to soft that they smudge all over the place, they blend really well and are fab for a quick smokey eye. My favourite shades are the matte black, something I use almost every day, and the bronze plum shade as it's a gorgeous colour that I didn't have anything like already.
The Eye Pencil Kit retails at £15 for 8 pencils, a complete bargain that you definitely shouldn't miss out on.
It's currently on offer for an amazing price of £7.50, I've already bought another to give as a Christmas present!
If you're interested in the BBB collection make sure to be quick as it's only around for a limited time!
