I generally only wear pencil liners, because (a) I’m awful at applying liquid liner and (b) liquid/gel liners often sting my eyelids! So, to combat the buyers remorse I’d have from buying a liner and only using it once, I never buy them! Then I saw the Collection Extreme, with it’s attractive price point of €4.79 (£2.99) and bought it!
Easy to Apply: The pen has a long and firm nib, with a small point. This makes it very easy to apply a thin line with the option of building it up if that’s what you like! For a daytime look, I like a very thin line, literally just to line my upper lashes (as you can see below).
Fast Drying: Another good thing about the Extreme liner is how “wet” the nib is, often times I find the nib on these pens to be quite dry and you have to go over your line a few times, and they can feel quite ‘scratchy’. With this one you can get the line in one stroke! Amazingly, it then dries almost instantly, yay!
24 Hour Wear: Not having worn it for 24 hours, I can’t say whether these claims are true or not, but I have worn it all day! It stays in place and doesn’t cake, crumble or transfer. As for removing it, I know some people were complaining about this being difficult to get off. I haven’t had that issue at all, I just use baby oil to take off eye makeup and it works like a charm! I’m not left with that faint black line that can happen with other makeup removers.
So, Collection Cosmetics has got another huge thumbs up from me, I love a great budget beauty find!
