Collection 2000 Extreme 24hour Felt Tip Liners - Review and Swatches


Left to right: Black, Blue, Purple, Teal.

Price: £2.99 each


Collection 2000 say:
Be bold, bright and beautiful!
The fast drying versatile felt tipped pens give your makeup look an instant burst of colour.
Easy-to-apply felt tip nib for all day long lustrous looking eyes.
Set trends with four intense, high powered hues including purple, blue, teal and black.

The felt tip design makes these easy to apply and the colours are highly pigmented (Apart from the black, which isn't as intense as I would like it to be). A quality we all look for in a product is it's staying power and these certainly have that, so much so that these leave a slight stain.

The swatches above show the liners normally, and then the result of rubbing forcefully (No jokes please!) and lastly the result of wiping (Again, forcefully) with a facial wipe. You can see the stain they have left on my arm.

These stains can probably be removed with a lot of force and products, but I don't think this will be good for your eye area.

I love the price, felt tip design, colours, pigmentation, staying power, but not the stain afterwards!

For £2.99 though, I would definitely try these out.


UPDATE: I've been wearing the black and it's so easy to use, lasts all day and doesn't stain, definitely a new favourite :)

  1. They're ok actually, with a bit of eye make-up remover you'll be fine :) I love the black one, it's on a par with my old favourite Bourjois one, just a lot cheaper!

  6. I think I'll pick up the black one - I was in love with their liquid eyeliner until they changed the shape of the brush! x

  7. I have the blue one and love the colours, but after using 3 different eye make-up removers and some bits in-between I was still left with a blue mark
