ColourPop HoneyDude & Teaspoon Creme Gel Liners

ColourPop HoneyDude Creme Gel Liner
ColourPop HoneyDude Creme Gel Liner

ColourPop Honeydude Creme Gel Liner ($6.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “creamy warm nude.” It’s a light peachy-beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, and it adhered well to both the waterline and lower lash line. It wore well for seven hours on the waterline, nine hours on the lower lash line. MAC Risque (P, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). Kat Von D Swanly (P, $18.00)(90% similar). LORAC Nude (P, $20.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Walk of Shame (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Rue Bonaparte (P, $24.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Teaspoon Creme Gel Liner ($6.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as an “intense emerald green.” It’s a muted, medium-dark green with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff in a single pass, which may have been due to the texture that felt a little drier compared to other shades I’ve tried in this formula. It builds up fairly well, so opaque coverage is possible. The color lasted for eight hours on me. Colour Pop Teaspoon (LE, $6.00) is brighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Lemmy (P, $18.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Buxom Ring My Bell (P, $17.00) is darker (85% similar). Sephora Indulge Yourself (22) (P, $10.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Descanso & Teaspoon Creme Gel Colours

ColourPop Descanso Creme Gel Colour
ColourPop Descanso Creme Gel Colour

ColourPop Descanso Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “bright purple.” It’s a bold, bright, medium-dark violet purple with cool undertones and bluish micro-glitter. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a creamy consistency that wasn’t too heavy, nor did it take too long to dry (it is quicker-drying). The color is so vibrant and pops well on the lash line, but I had issues with the glitter and color flaking on me over time, even though much of the color remained visible for over eight hours. NARS Blue Lotus (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (85% similar). Kat Von D Homie (P, $10.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Kat Von D Roxy (P, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). NARS St. Marks Place (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Buxom Door's Unlocked (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Sephora Eccentric Diva (P, $10.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Teaspoon Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as an “intense emerald green.” It’s a medium-dark green with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage with a thin, creamy texture that tended to sheer out when applied, so it is better applied in deliberately thin layers or in shorter strokes to maximize opacity. The consistency looks drier in the swatch than it felt and worked out in person. The color wore for over eight hours on me. Kat Von D Lemmy (P, $18.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Teaspoon (LE, $5.00) is more muted (95% similar). Buxom Ring My Bell (P, $17.00) is darker (85% similar). Sephora Indulge Yourself (22) (P, $10.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar).

CoverGirl Deep Mauve TruBlend Blush

CoverGirl Deep Mauve TruBlend Blush ($9.99 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep berry with cool undertones and a soft, frosted sheen. MAC Blind Score (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). IT Cosmetics Magical in Mauve (P, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). Black Up NBL 03 (P, $26.50) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Exotic (P, ) is warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Iridescent Flash (P, $38.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Easy (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery, lighter, more muted (90% similar). Laura Geller Plumberry (P, $26.00) is darker, brighter (85% similar). Smashbox Bitten (LE, ) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). MAC Hot Nights (LE, $23.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). NARS Ferocious (LE, $30.00) is warmer (85% similar). Viseart Violet #3 (P, ) is darker, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The TruBlend Blush formula is supposed to be blendable and create a “multi-toned result.” It was the richest and deepest shade of the three that CoverGirl came out with this spring. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture (very key with a color like this!) that applied beautifully to the skin. The texture ran a smidgen dusty, but it didn’t look dry or powdery on me. This shade wore well for seven hours before there were signs of fading.

The TruBlend Blush formula is supposed to be blendable and create a “multi-toned result.” It had good color payoff with a smooth, blendable, but rather dusty, consistency that was prone to sheering out on the skin. It’s the type of formula that actually works best patted on with a damp brush or over still-drying liquid/cream foundation for better hold and coverage. This blush lasted for six and a half hours on me before I noticed fading.
