Battle of the Glitter Liners

Hey Guys, I'm here with a review/comparison of three glitter eyeliners that are priced at under £5. I will be comparing the E.L.F. Liquid Eyeliner in Copper, the Barry M Gliter Liquid Eyeliner in Gold and the Collection 2000 Glam Crystals Eyeliner in Hustle.

E.L.F. Glitter Eyeliner

  • 5ml of Product

  • £1.50

  • Available at

  • Foam tip applicator

  • Very liquidy formula

  • Slightly patchy glitter distribution

  • Long drying time (over 5 mins)

Overall I find that the E.L.F. one is reasonable, the long drying time and slight patchyness deter me from buying any other shade of this liner though. I also found that there's not really a shade range at all as they are found under the liquid liners on ther site and only two of which contain glitter. I would recommend this to anyone who is on an extremely tight budget and is okay with putting in the extra effort for this product.

Collection 2000 Glam Crystals Glitter Liner

  • 6ml of product

  • £2.99

  • Available at Boots, Superdrug and some supermarkets.

  • Brush tip applicator

  • Tinted gel base

  • Even glitter distribution

  • Average drying time (Between 1 and 2 minutes)

I like the Collection 2000 glitter liner the best because it's packed full of glitter, but also has the right amount of gel base to make it a very good quality. There are fourteen colours to choose from so has the largest variety out of the three, and there are some really unique colours such as Hustle which is a lavender base with blue, green and silver glitter and is just beautiful.

Barry M Glitter Liner

  • 5ml of product

  • £4.99

  • Available at Superdrug and some Boots stores

  • Brush tip applicaror

  • Very dry formula

  • Patchy glitter distribution

  • Quick drying time (under 1 min)

This is my least favourite liner, and also the most expensive. The dry formula makes it hard to get a decent line. On the bright side, it dries quickly and has a reasonable range of seven shades. However I still don't believe that it is worth the money.

Here is a comparison of the swatches. The were taken in poor light so aren't fully representative of the colours but it does show the quality of the lines, which is what the comparison is really about.
