Bargain Beauty Buys | Collection Extreme Felt Tip Eyeliner & No Clumps Definition Mascara

Bargain Beauty Buys Collection Extreme Felt Tip Eyeliner & No Clumps Definition Mascara






I am definetley a fan of bargains from the drugstore and so I decided to purchase the Collection Extreme Felt Tip Eyeliner & No Clumps Definition Mascara in a bid to see if they are any good. After recently reviewing the Miss Sporty Liquid Eyeliner and Masacra, I was completely sold on the the budget-friendly drugstore brands that are so widely available.

Many bloggers have raved about the Collection eyeliner and at first I was a bit adamant to trying a felt tip applicator. At first I took an instant dislike to it as it just didn't work for my small eyelids. I was unable to get an even line all the way across and even at then I couldn't get the winged liner on both of my eyes looking the same. It was a nightmare and took some getting used to but now I am much more confident in using it and I have to say I'm enjoying it too! You can change the thickness of the line to however you wish and it has a sharp black colour within just one slick of liner.

I wasn't too pleased with the lasting power as for my watery eyes it did start to fade and crack after around 8 hours which is still a pretty good run for a drugstore eyeliner. I'm sure maybe with a primer it would have lasted a little longer but even then I am pretty sure it wouldn't last the full '12 hours' as claimed. I also love the variety of colours it comes in as you can choose to go a bit adventurous with teal or purple, or stick to a subtler liner in a brown shade. I probably will end up getting all of these for everyday use as they are undeniably great value as even the brilliant drugstore eyeliners can be £10+ so for £2.99, this isn't too shabby. 

The mascara is pretty good too. It had a nice pleasant application and it does live up to its name of having 'No clumps' which really pleased me. The volume was perfect for everyday wear which lasted relatively all day.

Collection are a really good brand for their makeup, and affordable too, but it can a hit-and-miss depending on what products you choose to buy. For such inexpensive products, both the eyeliner and mascara really are worth it.
