HELLO AGAIN

The Best Bargain Eyeliner.

Monday, 12 January 2015





If there's one thing I've learnt over the past year of blogging, it's that you don't always have to spend a fortune on a product to find one that works perfectly for you. The Collection Extreme 24hr Felt Liner £2.99  is a product that I find hard to live without, and if i'm wearing eyeliner, it's the first product I reach for.  

What I love about the eyeliner is that the tip isn't too firm, and works with you. I've noticed with numerous eyeliners that I can struggle to get a perfect winged eye if I'm constantly fighting against the product. If the tip is too hard, then it can drag across the eye, and if it's too soft your stroke can wobble meaning you'll have an almost messy line. The collection Extreme Felt Liner works well because although the tip has some structure - it offers movement too! 

The eyeliner applies west, and dries super fast- without bleeding and lasts all day - which is perfect if you don't have time or just don't want to use a primer. However, like most products there are some negatives too. I really wish Collection would plastic wrap their eyeliners as when you buy them in the shop, you have no idea how many people have swatched the product or opened it before you take it home. I also find that within around a month or two. the tip has started to dry out. to get it working again, I find pressing it onto the edge of the lid works - but this isn't a great fix. 

I love this eyeliner, and although I find myself constantly swooning over the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, I don't have a trip to the states planned any time soon, so Collection - you'll be staying in my make up bag for good.

I'd love to hear about your favourite eyeliner! Let me know what products you can't live without in the comments.

  1. This is my favourite eyeliner to use too, so I was very happy when I saw you had done a review! I'm awful with liquid eyeliner so this is a great alternative :)

  2. I *adore* this eyeliner, it's definitely my favourite felt tip liner, extremely easy to use! I love the Illamasqua Precision Gel Eyeliner as well though, completely different price tags, but both are lovely!

  5. This sounds amazing and is such a bargain. I'll definitely have to pick it up next time i'm shopping! My current eyeliner dries out far too quick so I've been on the hunt for a good replacement x

  10. I use this in purple so much. I usually use a gel liner as I can't do felt liners, but this one I can manage easily. A definite favourite.

  14. I tried this eyeliner and loved it, even though I never have gotten along with felt tip liners, however nothing stays put like my L'Oreal Superliner. x

  16. I really like felt tip liners - I have found some really great ones recently. This one looks like one I should definitely try too although I agree with you on the whole plastic wrapping scenario! Who knows how many hands the one you pick up has swatched? I always try to go for the one rIgbo at the back xx

  17. I've been so impressed with this product! I've tried much more expensive ones that dried out and became useless so fast and this one is still so pigmented and works a treat xx

  21. My favorite eyeliners are actually pencil liners! I love the bold look of liquid liners but my eyes water very often, especially in the winter. My faves are the Avon Ultra Luxury eye pencils :) xo

    1. Ah If liquid makes your eyes water, you may get on better with this one as it dries quickly. Thanks for the recommendation!
