Collection launched the Collection You Do You Cheek & Eye Tint at the start of the year and I decided to give one a try when Superdrug had one of their buy one, get one free deals across all cosmetics. Although the product launched at the beginning of 2020, I’ve never read any reviews on them, nor have I see them featured on social media, so I had no idea what the formula would be like.
The Collection You Do You Cheek & Eye Tint is £4.99 and available in just two shades; Bare and Flush. I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy the product in all honesty, as I can’t imagine wanting to use the same product on both my cheeks and my eyes.
You often see products that can be used on the cheeks and lips, but never the cheeks and the lips, and the two shades aren’t the kind of shades you’d typically want to wear on the eyes?
Collection You Do You Cheek & Eye Tint
“Multi use Cheek & Eye Tint is a natural flush of colour for cheeks and a sheer wash of tint for eyes, in a creamy formula which melts into the skin.“
The Collection You Do You Cheek & Eye Tint is packaged in a small, white plastic tube with a narrow nozzle. I bought the shade Bare which is a pretty peach, and Flush is a bright pink but Superdrug sent me the wrong shade. Rather than complain, I just accepted it as I couldn’t be bothered to return it, but this isn’t the shade I wanted.
I really don’t like the formula of this product unfortunately, and I can’t dress it up to be more positive or balanced. When you squeeze the plastic tube, a vile oil squeezes out – as shown above, and there’s no way to shake the tube beforehand, or even squeeze the tube to mix the product before use.
Every time I use the Collection You Do You Cheek & Eye Tint, I have to squeeze the tube until the oil has come out, wipe the oil away and wait until the product is a little more solid. Nobody wants to apply an oily product to their cheeks, and certainly not their eyes as it’d just be crease central.
Even when I’ve wiped away the obvious oil, it’s still very oily and does separate as I try to blend it into the skin with either my fingertips, a stippling brush or a beauty sponge. If you have anything other than dry skin, I really think you’ll struggle to make it work for you as it’s so oily.
The Flush shade is a very bright pink, which is much brighter than the shade of the lid on the tube. I thought it might have been comparable to the Glossier Cloud Paints with a more muted shade, for a barely there hint of colour.
There’s no hint with the Collection You Do You Cheek & Eye Tint, it’s bright and not something I would wear on my eyes. I tried it on my eyes once and I looked like I was gravely unwell. It’s a real shame as it sounds nice enough in principle but for £4.99, I’d rather use a tinted lip balm blended on the cheeks than to keep using this oily mess.
I’m sorry for being so negative, but it’s rare a product disappoints as much as this one, but it’s made its way to the bin as I’d never want to use it ever again.
