Collection Extreme Felt Tip Liner

I have a confession to make. I am terrible, absolutely terrible, at liquid eyeliner. Never been able to do it. I don't have a steady enough hand and I either poke myself in the eye or get a line which is far too thick. But I do love eyeliner! I started on kohl and recently I've been using my Maybelline gel eyeliner which I really like as it gives an intense black without smudging much throughout the day.

However with the rise of felt-tip lipsticks I thought there must be felt tip eyeliners which I would assume would be really really easy to use. One of my fellow beauty bloggers recommend Collection 2000's new Extreme liner so I decided to give it a go.

I went for black, the blacker the eyeliner the better for me, but you can also buy this in blue, purple and teal if you're more adventurous. It is as you'd expect, a felt tip applicator which you can use just the tip for a fine line, or slightly angle it to achieve a thicker line.

Unfortunately I couldn't get the light right to take a pic of it on my eyes but I hope this photo on my hand gives you a clear idea of how it looks.

It dries really quickly and does last all day long. One of my real bug-bares with eyeliner is when it smudges below your eyes during the day and makes you look really tired. I often go to the toilet and notice it in the mirror. It's so annoying!

Only £2.99 from Boots - 100% bargain!


  1. I have this eyeliner and I love it, plus like you said - it's such a bargain!x

  2. I'm hopeless as well - definitely have not been blessed with a steady hand! This sounds like a complete bargain though - may have to pop along to Boots tomorrow! x
