I’m thinking by now you’re possibly tired of red, white and blue? The Jubilee has been fantastic but I assume I’ve had union jack overload. Time to direct something different …, well TEAL actually.
I received this Collection 2000, or simply Collection as they’ve been rebranded, in last month’s Glossybox. Despite the fact it was among the cheaper items in the box, it was the one I was most fired up concerning attempting. Although I LOVE gel linings, I understand I would never ever have actually purchased this one. I hardly ever take a look at the Collection brand name and wouldn’t have actually anticipated their Gel lining to measure up to my precious ones as well as I would certainly never have chosen a teal.
It simply goes to demonstrate how incorrect we can be! This item is FANTASTIC, and also had I been blind testing I would certainly never ever of presumed it was a less expensive brand name. The colour is extremely dazzling– a true teal that works effectively with my eyes and also it’s very pigmented. The formula is thick, but not glupey and also is so simple to use. I tested it on my hand first to make sure– you can use of a liner or smudge it to make use of as an eye darkness.
Right here’s just how I use …
I dip my MAC 209 eye lining brush (The product features a little brush yet I discover them too tiny and also fiddly) right into the pot to get a small amount of the item as well as clean the unwanted off on the back of my hand, you can constantly include even more if you require it. Starting in the internal corner I sketch a thin line across my lash line, obtaining a little thicker as I reach the outer edge (you can include a flick if you want, yet I really did not on this event). What I love about gel linings is that they’re extremely pliable– there’s enough time to “play” with the item prior to it establishes. I include much more product along the line up until I more than happy with the form and density. Then repeat on the other eye– simples!
What’s incredible concerning this item is its endurance. I applied this at 07:30 am and by 9 that night (when this image was taken) it hadn’t moved or discolored. I thought this would indicate it wouldn’t wash off, but it did as well as with my normal face laundry.
