Collection 2000 Lasting Colour Gel Eyeliner

There has recently been a few gel eyeliners around by various brands such as Maybelline, Revlon, L'oreal and Rimmel.
Unlike the higher priced brands, the high street gel eyeliners only seem to carry a traditional black or brown.

Collection 2000 caught my eye as i already love their Shimmer Shades Blushalicious Blusher, Cream Puff Lip Cream, Glam Crystals and Hotlights Lip Gloss.

They have just released their Lasting Colour Gel Eyeliners in the regular black and brown but also to my joy, a Gold and Teal.

Unlike the other gel eyeliners, these pots are much smaller. They are said to last for 12 hours and come with hints on the back of the box.

The Gel liner is smooth and creamy to apply, the teal is very pigmented and metallic. The gold is not as pigmented but i've found it's ideal to apply to the inner corners of the eyes.

 For a highstreet brand, i am very impressed. The staying power is very good and hardly budged when i rubbed at the swatches on my hand. 
This is without a primer so i'm sure the result with one would be even better. Priced at £4.99 they are definitely worth trying out in my opinion.

These are out in time for summer and i hope they will have more colours. They are due to be released on 16th may in Superdrug and Boots shortly after. I bought these with the 3 for 2 offer on at superdrug along with another Glam Crystals Eyeliner to add to my collection.
