Not just another gel eyeliner: Collection 2000 aces long-lasting promise!

#eyespymondays

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.

Collection Cosmetics Lasting Colour Gel Eyeliner in Black, PhP 399.00
(Click READ MORE to know more...)

It comes in a small black and white box. 



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:
PROS
  • Long lasting! Tried and tested, 12-hour wear!
  • Non-chalky.
  • 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.
  • Waterproof.
  • Can withstand high humid days.
  • The small pot lasts you a while, as compared to liquid eyeliner pen types.


NEUTRAL
  • 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.


CONS
  • N/A

  2. If only I have hundreds of pairs of eyes. Having a good experience with LA Colors too (less than Php 300). I would buy it again, but there's so many gel liners, so little time!

    PS. Glad to have met you last Sunday :)
