Review: Collection 2000 shimmer & shade in Just Peachy!

Collection 2000 Shimmer & Shade powder
in Just Peachy!

Cost: I don't remember exactly but i know it's less than £5

My Thoughts: When i bought this i saw it as a super cheap alternative to the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks or the Body Shop Daisy Shimmer Powder. However with cheap products often comes bad quality. Don't get me wrong, it is far from terrible, but it can sometimes be a little chalky and difficult to work with. The colours in this palette are perfect for my pale skin to highlight my cheek bones :)

Where can you buy:

and i think some Tesco's stock Collection 2000

Compliments: I don't think i have ever received one when wearing it but my sister always borrows it so i guess it's a good product :)

Would i re-purchase: This is my second one but only because i dropped and smashed my first. I don't think i would buy it again. I tried the mac soft & gently MSF and loved it so i think that will be my next highlighter.

Great Tip: This palette doubles up as some really pretty shimmery eyeshadows, especially the smallest flower
Overall Score: 5/10

  1. I was actually thinking about getting one of these the other day. It does seem quite nice but I may stay clear if it can be hard to work with. I'll need to have a closer look. :) xo
