Review: Collection 2000 Glam Crystals Liners

Hello :)

In the spirit of Christmas, festivities and parties, I thought it was a good time to review these amazing glitter eye liners that you really need in your lives! They jazz up any look and are a fab purse friendly fave!


Collection 2000 say: Collection 2000 Glam Crystals Gel Liners contain sparkling glitter particles which create a dazzling effect. The precision brush makes application easy and can be used over eye shadow or alone with mascara. Easy application and fast drying.

I say: I really love these as they're a coloured gel plus a glitter so you're getting immediate colour. Unlike the Urban Decay gel liner I tried. But that's another story. The one thing I have found with these liners are that the brushes seem to differ colour to colour. Some are brilliant and thin which is great for creating super sleek lines, but some are a bit splayed and chunky. A minor niggle, but one worth mentioning. I find them fairly easy to apply and they take probably less than a minute to dry.


Top to bottom: Funk (gold), Night Fever (blue), Rock Chick (black), Pow (green/blue), Shake It Up (purple)

Collection 2000 sayUse as an eye liner or layer up over the eyelid and wear as eye shadow for all over sparkle.

I say: I use these as an eyeliner as I think they'd take forever to dry all over the lid, plus I don't fancy looking like a giant glitter ball ;) As a liner though they're absolutely brilliant. Very sparkly with highly pigmented gel bases. They certainly brighten up any look!

I know I'm probably the last person to have discovered the amazingness that are the Glam Crystals liners, but these are definitely worth a try if you want to jazz up your festive look.

Are there any other shades I need in my life? What are your thoughts on these glitzy gems?

  1. I always stop to look at them but never pick them up...The black/ silver ones looks nice :)

  2. I love these, I have almost all of them! The only thing I don't like is that the brushes can be quite hit and miss.

  3. Beauty's Bad Habit - Definitely worth trying, they're fab! Rock Chick is lush - a sparkly kick to the traditional black liner xx

    Laura - Hehe yay :D Yeah I found that but can't really complain for the price xx

  4. I may have to invest in the teal one. What is the brush on the teal one like ? x

  5. I love the black one too, and the purple. Definitely worth a look, I think. And great for a Christmas night out!

  6. Isn't it lush? The purple is gorgeous too. Yes, definitely perfect for jazzing up festive makeup :D xx

  7. I love these!! I have the black and the purple one, They just add that little bit of sparkle to really get you feeling good and especially with Christmas makes you feel a bit more festve! I tried the MUA ones from superdrug to see if they were any good and they are a really good alternative at £1 :) xx

  8. They're gorgeous aren't they? Oo I saw the MUA ones today but the store I went in only had gold and black and I already have the same colours. I'll keep an eye out though as I know they do lots of other shades xx

  9. Yeah they really are, Im tempted to buy every colour going although with the MUA ones when i was testing them the lighter shades didnt seem so great in colour and consistency but the darker colours were very good! And they are 3 for 2 so its even more of an excuse to buy :) xx

  10. Hehe gotta love some 3 for 2 bargains :D xx
