Felt Tip Liner

Hey guys,

I've recently been getting into the felt tip eye liner pen things, my friends been using them for a while and I've been meaning to try them. I've always used liquid eyeliner and in the last year started using gel liner for the more dramatic look. Although I've noticed a lot more felt tip pens advertised on TV and thought i'd give it a try because I've always found liquid eye liner too much fuss for a quick everyday look. So onto the products, I went for fairly cheap ones to start. The first I bought was 'Rimmels Scandal Eyes thick and thin eyeliner' this was from Boots and cost me £5.49 and the second was 'Collection Extreme 24 hour felt tip liner' again from Boots and cost me £2.99.
Sorry about the not so great pictures

So the first one I bought was from Rimmel and the reason I went for this is because Rimmel is a personal fav brand when it comes to make-up. The idea of it is that it has a all in one thick and thin applicator with the edge like an angled brush. I though this was a nice idea as I thought I would be able to get right to the lash line for definition or a defined line. It was great for about 3 days..before it dried up. I stored it upside down to try and prevent it from drying but nope no good, maybe it was me maybe the product, but now instead of a nice flowing black line I have a dried felt tip which you really have to work at (as you can see in the picture below). Not such a great liner for what I want but maybe ill get some use when I want to touch up on the go or create a smudgy look. Sorry Rimmel but this didn't cut the mustard for me.
After Rimmel didn't work out I thought I'd give Collection 2000 a try. I've never really rated Collection until I heard other bloggers talk about it and thought what have I got to loose..other than a couple of quid anyways. Well boy let me tell you I was definitely wrong not to rate it! This liner is great you can create a nice delicate line or a dramatic bold line, it dries super quick and hasn't dried out on me yet (and I've had it for about a month). At £2.99 you really can't go wrong. It says it's a 24 hour liner, but lets be honest who wears eye liner for that long? Saying that it's lasted me a good 10 hours, and I've napped. I feel a love for Collection 2000 blooming.

I really want to try the 'Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner Pen', 'L'Oreal Paris Super Liner Blackbuster Intense' Has anyone tried these? Or even the Rimmel and Collection ones? Let me know in the comment.
