Review: Collection Waterproof 'Fast Stroke' Eyeliner

Where do I start with this?
I have been a religious user of the non-waterproof version of this product so had incredibly high hopes for this. I went to Boots to pick up another one of these but they had run out so I thought "why not try the waterproof one instead? I'm sure it'll be just as good..." It's the complete opposite to its sister product, which almost every girl has in her make-up bag.
The application is dull and requires a good few strokes to get going. It isn't very precise and I felt as though the end of the product was dry, so produced a grey-ish, faded line instead of a define, thick black line. It may be waterproof but it is certainly not smudge-proof or flake-proof; I found that within minutes of applying, the eyeliner had started to fade away and when trying to neaten up, would just smudge or fade even more. I was so surprised at this though because Collection's other eyeliner is amazing - especially for just £2.99! Within a few hours of wear, the eyeliner had near enough vanished completely.
Not only would this be terrible for day-to-day use, but it's poor quality of colour and short-lasting capabilities means it'd be almost pointless trying to make flicks either.
So the moral of the story is: stick to what you know, if it isn't broke - don't fix it, blah blah blah! But yep, I wouldn't recommend this product and I am going straight back to the non-waterproof version of this product! (below)

  1. I'm not sure if we have that product in the U.S., but I definitely want to try it. I love liquid liner. You get such a nicely defined line.
