Hey guys, today I thought I’d talk to you about arguably one of my favourite products of all time, Collection’s Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner.
I’ve been completely obsessed with this product since I first tried it out 4 months ago.We’ve all been there, you’re out and about, and catch a glimpse of your reflection in a shiny surface. And you’re greeted by your makeup looking anything but “on fleek”. On a particularly rainy day in July I had one of these moments. I had been caught by the rain, and my eyeliner had faded and my wings had smudged; it was not a pretty sight. And of course this happened on one of the rare days I had ventured out without my makeup bag to hand.
So in an attempt to quickly rectify the situation, I wandered into Boots looking for a cheap eyeliner that I could use to touch up my makeup for the day. I only wanted something cheap so that I didn’t feel bad if it wasn’t outstanding, and I never used it again.
So of course I went to the Collection stand, and saw this felt tip eyeliner there, for only £2.99, so I didn’t hesitate with buying it. I quickly ran into the toilets and touched up my eyeliner, and didn’t think about it again for the rest of the day.But then day after day, I found myself packing away my existing eyeliners, and reaching for this one more and more. I now cannot imagine trying anything else.
This eyeliner is slim and sleek, so it feels really nice to use, as it’s not bulky and difficult to manoeuvre. The pen itself is nicely sized, and not thick, so it’s very easy to do a very thin, sleek cat eye, or you can build up a much thicker line, there’s no need to slim the line out because the pen is too thick. It’s also a pointed tip, which I feel is so important for eyeliner, because a slanted tip can make application difficult and messy.
This eyeliner also lasts so much longer than any eyeliner I have ever tried. In fact, I’m still using the original one that caused me to fall in love! Finally, there’s the price, for the quality and durability of this product, I can’t believe that it’s one of the cheapest felt liners on the market.
In fact, I once tested this eyeliner against the YSL felt liner, and the YSL one faded and came off completely when I went swimming, but the Collection one stayed put and exactly as I’d applied it, until I removed it with makeup remover!
Talking like this feels like I’m recounting my first love, I just really can’t believe my luck with absent-mindedly picking up this liner, absolutely loving it, and all of these incredible pros that come along with it. I honestly haven’t found something I don’t like about it yet.
That’s it for this post! I hope you guys enjoyed it, do you have a holy grail makeup item? Let me know in the comments! See me talk more about my Makeup Bag Staples HERE.
