Not just another gel eyeliner: Collection 2000 aces long-lasting promise!Sunday, March 23, 2014
Gel eyeliners are very effective because they really live up to the name "waterproof". It really lasts 12 hours without smudging! The only reason why I use gel liners only for my clients is because my "job" as a makeup artist has to make sure that the makeup will last the whole day without smudging, specially when I do makeup for brides.
Now everyone can enjoy the benefits of a gel liner at a very affordable price! I didn't think it would be that effective since it came with a cheap price tag. But as always, Collection Cosmetics never seizes to amaze me.

The eyeliner pot comes with a flat eyeliner brush which can be used 2 ways: Use the flat side for a thicker application, or use the side of the hair (thin side) to apply the liner precisely and thinner.
Very compact! You might think that such a small pot won't last long or you will get to the bottom of the pot faster than you can say "gel eyeliner", but it really lasts a while!
You can see that it is highly pigmented. This is just a single dip in the pot and it makes a really dark, intense line.
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS:
- Long lasting! Tried and tested, 12-hour wear!
- Smooth formula.
- Dries quickly.
- Very easy to control.
- Sticks to any skin type, even on oily lids!
- Very affordable.
- Easily available.
- Doesn't irritate the eyes.
- Product does not dry up quickly in the pot.
- Comes with a brush that is easy to use.
- Light weight and compact!
- Doesn't smudge easily.
- Can withstand high humid days.
- The small pot lasts you a while, as compared to liquid eyeliner pen types.
- Keep the lid very tight, because it can dry up really quickly (but still very useable!).
- Almost always with gel eyeliners, the pot dries up even before you hit the bottom.
- Takes practice to get used to controlling a brush, so choose a brush that mimics a felt-tip liner for liquid eyeliners.
