Eyeliner Review: Barry M Wink vs. Collection 2000 Extreme

Disclaimer: The Barry M Wink eyeliner was given to me at an event.

I’ve been really getting into comparision reviews lately so here are another two I thought it would be interesting to compare.

Basics:

  • Collection 2000 £2.99 vs. Barry M £4.59
  • BOTH brands are cruelty free
  • BOTH UK brands

I’ve been a huge fan of the Collection 2000 eyeliner but I was recently given the Barry M one at an event and though it would be the perfect product to compare.

I won’t go into too much detail as I’ve linked my video review bellow but one thing I’ve noticed with any type of liquid eyeliner is that if you wear it daily it can drive the skin around your eyes a little nuts.

It’s probably something to do with the fact that most pen eyeliners have alcohol in them (that’s what makes them fast drying) so if you already have dry and sensitive skin around the eyes a gel or cream eyeliner might be a better alternative for you.

Here is the video review:

If you’re not from the UK and want to try out either of the brands Barry M dose do worldwide shipping (I think) however I’m fairly sure that Collection 2000 dose not have that option, but if you keep an eye out on e-Bay and Amazon I’m sure you’ll be able to catch them there :)

I’m back! :D New video and plans…

*Happy dance* I’m back!

I was hoping to do a much more dramatic video for my first upload in over two months but it’s taking me a lot more time than I planned to make all the props I need for that tutorial so I had to upload a far less spectacular tutorial.

But don’t worry, that tutorial will still be uploaded!

Seeing as everyone liked it so much in my previous blog posts when I showed how the makeup would look with different eye colours I’ll still be doing that.

And the lovely thing about this look is that if the mint green dosn’t work with your eye colour you can just swap it with a colour that does!

So what are my plans for videos now?

Well…I will be uploading regularly now, on my KlairedelysArt channel it will be once a week on a Friday and then pretty much randomly on my Klairedelysdotcom channel but generally for that channel I’d like to keep it to the beginning of the week.

KlairedeLysdotcom?

Yes I have a second channel! What’s it for? Mainly for reviews (I’m not a fan of mixing tutorials with reviews in my channel as they tend to appeal to different people), How-I-Made/Painted-That videos, tutorials which are not makeup related such as DIY beauty and just random stuff.

Keep an eye out on that channel cause you know that present I’ve mentioned a few times that I was making for ALL of you? Well the video for that will be uploaded on that channel.

As I’m sure I’m going to get flooded with questions about THOSE wing earrings these are the gorgeous pair of earrings I bought from the lovely Aranwen. You can buy them here.

Oh and Aranwen was kind enough to give me a code to get a 10% discount for you guys, so if you any of you are planning on buying one of her pieces don’t forget to use the code KLAIRE10 at the checkout.

And I hope you like the video :D

 

Lace Eyes

I have been planing this one for so long so I’m over the moon that I’ve finally uploaded it! :D

I got the idea for this one around the end of August (last year) so I’m pretty happy to finally have it off the paper and into a tutorial :)

As you can see I’ve made some slight changes to the original design I had. I found that if I added the lace on the bottom lid all the way into the inner corner from a distance it looked too much like a dark circle or just a black eye.

(For those of you wondering the design on the right was the design idea I originally had for the valentines day look I uploaded a few weeks ago)

There isn’t really a tone of logic in showing this look in different eye colours seeing as it will suit any eye colour but seeing as I’ll probably still get people asking me to do it I will.

There are a few ways you can make this look less plain if simple rhinestones and liner isn’t glam enough for you.

How about using different kinds of rhinestones? Different colours or even studded rhinestones if you want a “lace and studs” look.

There’s no reason why you have to use black eyeliner.

If your skin is very dark an absolutely stunning alternative to using black eyeliner is any kind of metallic eye liner, especially gold!

And my final suggestion would be why not use some kind of colour on the water line? I know I partly lined the out corner of the waterline but there is no reason why the rest cant be filled.

Green, blue, turquoise eyeliner? Gold? The options are endless :)

Enjoy the tutorial!
