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.


  • 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 :)

And you can get the Collection 2000 eyeliner here

What type of eyeliner do you use/prefer?

    I use a gel eyeliner, and I really love it, but I would like to try something else. Where can I get the Collection 2000 one?
    Nice review, btw. And really fine video for this :)

    I use a liquid eyeliner from L’oreal almost every day, and I have really sensitive skin around my eyes, but it has never bothered me. I think it is called “lineur intense” or something like that. You shuld really try it it!^^ But if you get sore skin around your eyes, or on your face, you shuld try 96% aloe vera gel from Dermica(you can just use the plant, but you often end up a bit yellow/green-ish). My skin has gotten a lot better, Wounds on my face/pimples go away a lot faster, and the dark circles under my eyes have become less visible.
    Love the review ^^ But Barry M eyeliners smudge like crazy on me! Love their Dazzle Dusts and lipsticks though :p

    @Blackie I don’t use L’oreal because they test on Animals :)
    I LOVE aloe vera gel! That stuff is a life saver, especially for when I get sun burnt :C

    hey Klaire another great vid :D I have the collection 2000 eye liner and to be honest I just dont like it, it drys way to fast to correct mistakes and kills my eyes :( I used to wear it all day everyday and everyday I’d have to keep checking the mirror and re applying it again :/ since using my gel liner from maybelline I’ve never looked back, even went to a water park with it on and it didnt budge, seriously you should try it :)
