Technic Cosmetics reached out to me back in late December asking if I would be interested in collaborating with them, reviewing their products. Unbeknown to them at the time, I set out to discover more about them, their company ethos, and did other YouTubers have free reign to be honest? You see I'm relatively new to the whole collab thing having only done a few previously, and whilst I'm always keen to do a great job for the brand in question, I will never sell my honesty either for products or payment. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Technic are pretty active on YouTube, regularly commenting on videos featuring their items, and they dont censor anyone, including those who have recieved PR samples. Furthermore they were open to feedback, good or bad. This in my opinion is an AWESOME attitude for a company to have (many could learn a thing or two from them) and I thought - Yes, sign me up!
Doing a little bit of research on their products, I was super intrigued by their Metalix Eyeshadow Creams. Over on YouTube people went crazy for the Stila Liquid Eyeshadows, but they are pretty pricey (£23 each) and whilst these are more metallic than glittery, in my mind I was thinking these are potentially the perfect bargain alternative! I knew my subscribers would be interested in something so affordable so I asked Technic if they would be happy for me to review the entire collection.
They sent over 4 of the range and I was instantly impressed, I quickly jumped on eBay and ordered the remaining 2 to be able to showcase the entire collection of 6 shades - Halo, Champagne for Everyone, Rosie Posie, Taupe Be, Plum Pudding and Brandy Snap. I picked these up for less than £3 each delivered - super affordable!
Over the next week I did a mountain of tests, how many layers can you apply before they start flaking? Do they work without primer? How long will they last? (I even wore them on the back of my hand whilst I slept to test wear time - yes I'm crazy!)
