Collection Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner





I am never going to be one of those girls who can pull off the perfect cat-eyed eye-liner with just a quick flick of the liner brush. Liquid liner for me has always been the bane of my life. I've tried numerous liquid liners over the years, but I've still never really managed to get it right. I am the typical girl whose line keeps getting thicker and thicker until literally my entire eyelid ends up being black! Not exactly the look I'm going for. The idea of wearing eyeliner on a daily basis - highly unlikely!

I don't now exactly what it was that made me try Collection's Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner as I hadn't read any reviews at that time. I think I was just having a bit of a Superdrug binge in all honesty, and in my quest to perfect eyeliner I though I would give it a go.

Firstly, it is exactly like a fine nibbed felt tipped pen. If you use the tip you will get a tiny line and if you use it along the flat you will get a much thicker line. The consistency of the liquid is again like a felt tip. It isn't wet like most liquid liners. You might argue that it's not really a liquid liner on that basis, but it isn't a kohl pencil or a gel so it's difficult to say where this sits in the liner society. It does mean it dries quite quickly, but this also means you can build it up, so if it is looking a bit faint in places, you can go over it again and make it blacker and thicker.

In terms of it's claim to last 24 hours, well I think this is certainly exaggerated. It doesn't fully last a full day at work for me when slicked on quickly whilst half asleep in a morning (yes I am one of those people that wears eyeliner daily now!) but weirdly on a night out with all make up and primer in place it stays pretty solidly actually, so the message if you put the prep in you will get the results - but I still doubt it will last 24 hours. At £2.99 though, it's difficult to complain about that too much, and that it is the only liquid liner I've ever repurchased (in more than one colour!)

  1. I really like this a cheaper alternative to L'Oreal's Super Liner which is similar in terms of having a felt tip like nib (although it's difference from Collection's and has the liquid liner in the tube like most liquid liners).

  2. Good review Jenni. I don't really think any eyeliner lasts 24 hours tbh, what I do is use a kohl liner as a base then draw on top with a felt liner.
