Collection 2000 Glitter Eyeliners

(They're actually called Glam crystals dazzling gel liner but that just seems like a bit of a mouthful)
I’ve been walking past these for months and never took any notice of them, partly down the fact glitter eyeliner isn’t really part of my everyday routine and in part because I’ve tried my fair share of them and most, particularly I must say the cheaper ones, look awful with the glitter being too chunky and sparse.

But after watching Pixiwoo mention them and hearing a few other bloggers mention them I knew I had to try them out (I love a bit of sparkle in winter!)
I picked up three shades Glitz 1(Silver), Funk 3(Gold) and VaVaVoom a gorgeous mix of blue and green with red and gold glitter – not something for the fainthearted. But then glitter liner does take a certain about of bravery to wear to anything but a Christmas party!
The packaging is simple with a short applicator perfect for easy application and all three are jam-packed full of glitter.

I've used these a few times over some plain black liner and on it'd and it looks pretty good both ways but I'm defiantely be sticking with it over some black liner for christmas!
Overall for £2.99 this is a bargain - Boots currently has these for 3 for 2 so it's even better! I can't help but be tempted to go back and try out more colours from their range as they have just about every colour from red through to blue.(the blues and green look incredibly pigmented but I'm not sure I'd ever actually wear them - even at during the festive Christmas party season..)

These are anything but subtle however for christmas these are a perfect way of making your make up festive & are amazing value for the price!

@Ching, you'd never get glitter in your eye as the glitter is so fine it's part of the liquid so you don't get any fall out

@ediot it looks gorgeous around the eye as it reflects the light making the whites of your eyes look a little brighter :)

Karen said...

I use to LOVE glitter liners :) I still have quite a bit of glitter in my stash but I use them like you do - combined with black liner. Although I just layer a bit of glitter right beside the black liner and not on top like you said....I'm sure both ways worn look fab and it's great for a night out or clubbing!

Kasia said...

Thanks dear! :)
I like the silver liner, could be useful for going out times ;)

I usually wouldn't wear a glittery eyeliner but a darker colour might look nice!

@Cherry Pullinger - I don't normally wear glitter liner but over black liner it can actually look pretty subtle and pretty!! x
