Collection 2000 Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner

I've been on the lookout for a felt tip liner for quite some time now. I wanted to something cheap as I just wanted to see if it was any different to apply than the other liquid liners that I own, in the end I went for the Collection 2000 one as it is definitely on the affordable side, and I liked it after swatching it on my hand in store.


This liner comes in sleek black packaging and has a thin felt tip applicator. The nib is thin enough to get a thin line which can easily be built up and made thicker.


This liner glides really easily and it is very pigmented. It's opaque in a single swipe, it's very intense! I don't really have the problem of it drying out or having to shake it every two seconds like I have to with other liners I've used either. I've also found that it's easy to correct mistakes, it dries quickly but allows time for you to wipe away any errors.



I definitely think that this eye liner makes it a lot easy to draw even lines and flicks. I have very shaky hands so it works really well for me. I imagine that with Halloween coming up it would be excellent for playing around with face paint designs. The only problem with this liner is it not suitable for contact lens wearers. It doesn't seem to say this anywhere on the packaging so bear this in mind.

The lasting power is really good, I'd say it lasted around five hours or so before it began to fade a little bit. Unfortunately I haven't yet been able to test out the 24 hour claim!

The biggest plus side to this liner is the price. It's one of the cheapest that I would find (I haven't tried the MUA one) at £2.99 it is very affordable. It also comes in purple, teal and blue. I swatched the purple one on my hand in store and it looks beautiful! I may end up going back to get it at some point.

This liner costs £2.99 and can be bought from Boots and Superdrug. Unfortunately I cannot seem to find it on either website.

In other news, it's my blog's first birthday today! I genuinely cannot believe just how fast the past year has gone...it really doesn't feel that long ago since I was getting very excited about having ten followers and now I'm somehow at 180?! To be honest I find it completely confounding that ten would want to read my blog let alone any more than that! I just wanted to take a moment to thank you all for taking the time to read and comment on my blog since I started. It really does mean a lot and it brightens up my day! Thank you!

  1. Happy blog birthday! You deserve all 180 of us followers :) Doing anything to celebrate? A mini blog party? I have no idea how that would work but still! Anyway, I've lost all faith in felt liners when I bought one from Bourjois and it was dried out by the time I got it home, none were sealed so it was really a hope against hope nobody had tested them! But this sounds like a decent one for once, I do trust Collection's eyeliners now thanks to their gel liner! The MUA waterproof liquid liner is the best I've ever used, it stays put all fricking day and does not budge, definitely 24hr wear on that one! Xxx

    1. Thank you so much lovely! Ooh a blog party sounds fun, I don't know how that work either though, hehe! That's really bad, something that you use on your eyes really ought to have been sealed! It is really good, especially for the price! I very nearly went for the MUA one, but I went with this since MUA always seems sold out in my local Superdrug. I've not tried the gel liners, I might have to check them out!
