I love Marks & Spencers and as a results of that I always try to make some sort of purchase in store when money allows me to! I don't have a lot of knowledge about the make up range if I'm perfectly honest but I spotted this compact costing £3.00 and decided that as Marks & Spencers usually deliver quality in my opinion this was worth shelling out a few pennies on! Before I start this review I must point out that the photograph at the top of this review is wrong however it is from the same range by the look of the photograph that we can all see. The Packaging: Plastic see-through case that contains 5 moist round eye-shadows. On the front of the case I am told that it is is Marks & Spencers 'Eyes' and underneath the case ingredients are listed and contact details for Marks & Spencers are given and it all looks very simple indeed and not one bit cheap. The Compact: What you get is as I have already mentioned is 5 colours and my particular choice of eye-shadows in this case was a light brown/golden shades. All are moist and slightly glossy however they are highly pigmented with colour though sort of sheer if you want to apply them that way. You also get a double ended applicator to apply the eye-shadows with. It's not big, is angled and made from soft sponge material. All in all this looks a nice compact and I appreciate that this compact has 4 colours and one white shimmery highlighter that is slightly bigger than the rest. Using them is really rather easy. They glide onto any applicator you wish to use with ease and smooth on the skin easily and it's easy to build up your chosen colour. However once on these crease badly and leave your eyes looking slatty and thats after a very short time indeed and if your in warm/hot conditions these simply are dreadful. Wearability is rubbish with these but ease of using them and the way they feel temporarily on the skin is very good but for me these are quite simply a no-no! Not recommended from me one bit these sadly and I'm now very wary of trying out anything else from the Marks & Spencers make up range in the future! Only available in Marks & Spencers stores!
