MAC Into the Well Eyeshadows

MAC Beg For It Into the Well Eyeshadow
MAC Beg For It Into the Well Eyeshadow

MAC Into the Well Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a new, limited edition formula that can be used dry or wet, and there is a well in the middle for mixing the powder with water. I think they are better as eyeliners–used with a wet brush–than as eyeshadow, as they have a tendency to turn patchy and apply unevenly on the skin without a really solid base and some patience. If you’re applying it dry as an eyeliner, I recommend a small, flat edge brush and pressing into the lash line rather than sweeping. If you’re applying it wet as an eyeliner, use enough water that the surface of the powder darkens but not enough that the water is visibly sitting on the surface of the powder. I felt like there was a decent learning curve between too much and too little water; too much resulted in uneven and sheer coverage while too little resulted in dry, dragged-out lines. I think they’re best patted over pencil eyeliner to really set and lock in place–these will add two to three hours on top of my pencil eyeliner’s wear. There are six shades, and I have three of them, which are reviewed below:

MAC Beg For It Into the Well Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “black.” It’s a medium-dark black with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It was fairly pigmented with a really soft texture, but I wish it was easier to blend out on the skin–it had a tendency to stick wherever it applied initially but then turn patchy any time I tried to diffuse or even it out. The product performed better as an eyeliner, where it lasted for eight hours when applied dry, nine hours when applied wet. City Color Black Widow (P, $6.99) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Point 'n' Shoot (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). MAC Structured Satin (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). bareMinerals Black Leather (LE, $14.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Cinderblack (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, glossier (95% similar). Smashbox Big Night (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Stiletto (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Kat Von D Jet (LE, ) is cooler (95% similar). Laura Mercier Noir (P, $23.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). L'Oreal Noir C'est Noir (P, $5.99) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Carbon (P, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Cookies and Cream (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Devotion (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar).

Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night No. 12 (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Dark Desires Into the Well Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “blackened eggplant.” It’s a blackened plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was very soft, but it ran powdery, so use less than you think you need and build-up the color in layers to avoid a lot of fall out. It applied decently as an eyeshadow, but it was somewhat uneven in places. It applied well both dry and wet as an eyeliner, but the wear was longer with wet application (nine hours). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Free Spirit No. 17 (LE, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Anastasia Rowdy (P, $12.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). theBalm Matt Batali (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Blackheart (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate (LE, $22.00) is warmer (85% similar). bareMinerals Ensemble (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). theBalm #27 (P, $6.50) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Switch Me On Into the Well Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “dark navy.” It’s a blackened navy blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture felt very soft and smooth, but it was ultimately on the powdery side and didn’t apply evenly. When I tried to blend it (as an eyeshadow), it just turned so patchy. It faded after seven hours as an eyeshadow, while it lasted about eight hours on the lower lash line dry and nine hours applied wet. Tarte Inked (LE, )(100% similar). bareMinerals Maven (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Smashbox Harbor (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Pseudonym (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). LORAC Dark Navy (LE, $19.00) is more muted (95% similar). NARS Mandchourie #1 (LE, $25.00) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Midnight Kiss (LE, ) is less pigmented (95% similar). Laura Mercier Deep Night (P, $23.00) is lighter (90% similar). Giorgio Armani #02 (P, $32.00) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Heroine (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). MAC Midnight Shadows (LE, $22.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar).

Urban Decay Delirious 24/7 Eyeliner Set

Urban Decay Delirious 24/7 Eyeliner Set
Urban Decay Delirious 24/7 Eyeliner Set

Urban Decay Delirious 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set ($29.00 for 0.15 oz.) includes five travel-sized eyeliners. Three of the five shades could be significantly more pigmented and apply better (they just don’t go on very evenly!), and whoever depicted the color of Zodiac on the box made it appear like a teal hue, when it is nothing like that at all.

Zodiac is a blackened brown with lighter forest green and gold shimmer and pearl, so it appears more as a forest green with warm undertones. It had sheer coverage in one stroke, but it was buildable to semi-opaque coverage with three passes. The texture glided well across the skin, but it just didn’t deposit color–almost like it was too waxy. Applied, it wore well for eight hours on me. Urban Decay Zodiac (P, $22.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Swamped (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). NARS Rue de Rivoli (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). LORAC Dark Green (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Accuse is a medium-dark, slightly brightened, blue with a lighter blue and navy blue sparkle. It had semi-sheer pigmentation in one pass, and it was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with two layers. The texture had a noticeable chunkiness to it due to the amount of sparkle, though it didn’t feel rough on the lash line. It lasted for eight hours with some sparkly pieces that traveled. MAC Hyacinth (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Electric Cobalt (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Tarina Tarantino Glamorous Thief (P, $15.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Delirious is a muted, medium-dark eggplant purple with warm undertones and lighter violet shimmer. It had semi-sheer color coverage in one stroke, and it was buildable to almost solid color after two layers. It wore well for eight hours on my lower lash line, but the texture could have been a little creamier/denser to enable more even coverage. NARS Bourbon Street (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Resort (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Fancy Moves (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Image Conscious (P, $17.00) is cooler (85% similar). Tarina Tarantino Ultraviolet (P, $15.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). bareMinerals 6AM (LE, $15.00) is warmer (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty (Plum)age (60) (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Voodoo (LE, $20.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Muse is a dark, chocolate brown with warm undertones and fine gold pearl. It had good pigmentation in one stroke, and it was lightly creamy and glided on with even, smooth coverage. It lasted for eight hours on me. Urban Decay Corrupt (P, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Zoeva Rock 'n' Roll Bride (P, $7.50) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Burberry Midnight Brown (P, $27.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Orpheus (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Dark Force (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Lord It Up (P, $15.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever D62 Diamond Brown (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Brown(out) (54) (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). Sephora Cocoa (P, $10.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Perversion is a deep, rich black with a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented and very creamy, while still wearing well (eight and a half hours). Make Up For Ever #1K (P, $17.00)(100% similar). MAC Black Brilliance (LE, $16.00)(100% similar). Estee Lauder Blackened Black (LE, $20.00)(100% similar). MAC Smolder (P, $16.00)(100% similar). MAC Graphblack (P, $17.00)(100% similar).

MAC Definitely Black (P, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). Kat Von D Puro Amor (P, $10.00) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Swerve (P, $6.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Jet (LE, $24.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Smooth Manoeuvre (LE, $17.00) is cooler (95% similar). Zoeva Black to Earth (P, $7.50) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). NARS Black Valley (P, $25.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Engraved (P, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Skully (P, $18.00) is less glossy (95% similar).

Urban Decay 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencils

Urban Decay Legend 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil
Urban Decay Legend 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil

Urban Decay Legend 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a new, permanent formula designed to yield “waterproof color” for use on the waterline that is “even creamier” than their original eye pencils. I had so many issues wearing these, and I have tried them over the last few months. These smudge within an hour and have horrific migration (as if I had sobbed for an hour and all my mascara ran!) within four hours. They just don’t stay at all on the waterline or the lash line. The texture is drier, stiffer, and definitely not creamier than their original range (which is waxier to me–they glide better). The pigmentation varied from shade to shade. It was difficult to apply even color on the lower lash line or waterline, and the formula would not last at all.

Legend is a dark black with cool undertones and a matte finish. It was semi-opaque, slightly stiff, and lasted for an hour before it started to breakdown; by the fourth hour, it was a makeup emergency kind of situation! Urban Decay Perversion (P, $20.00) is glossier (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M10 Matte Black (P, $21.00) is glossier (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Jet (LE, $24.00) is glossier (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M10 Matte Black (P, ) is glossier (95% similar). MAC Smolder (P, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Squid (P, $17.00) is glossier (95% similar). Sephora Black Lace (P, $10.00) is glossier (95% similar). MAC Blacktrack (P, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Cat's Meow (P, $17.00) is glossier (95% similar). Colour Pop Swerve (P, $6.00) is darker, glossier (95% similar). Stila Stingray (P, $22.00) is glossier (90% similar). Ardency Inn Black (P, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Swerve (P, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Black Velvet (P, $20.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Graphblack (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Buxom Call Me (P, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar). NARS Via Veneto (P, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Mood is a medium-dark gray with cool, blue undertones and a mostly matte finish. The pencil dragged and skipped on the waterline (as well as the lash line), which made it difficult to get even, opaque coverage. I had issues with it starting to migrate and smudge within an hour of wear. Make Up For Ever M14 Matte Charcoal Grey (P, $21.00)(100% similar). Colour Pop Timber (DC, $6.00) is more pigmented, cooler, better quality (95% similar). Colour Pop Timber (DC, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Zinc (LE, $26.00)(95% similar). Urban Decay Lure (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Madison Ave. (P, $24.00) is more pigmented, cooler (90% similar). NARS London (P, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Push is a slightly muted, navy blue with a matte finish. It was stiff, dry, and applied almost in chunks, as it dragged a lot and didn’t build-up well. Within an hour of applying it, I could see it had started to move and slide around. Kat Von D Poe (P, $18.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Stila Midnight Blue (P, $22.00) is glossier (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Over(night) (P, $25.00) is glossier (95% similar). MAC Waveline (P, $16.00) is glossier (95% similar). NARS Darklight (P, $24.00)(90% similar). Giorgio Armani #3 (P, $29.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Bionic Bae (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Sabbath (P, $20.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Urban Decay Minx (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Blackened Sapphire (LE, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Push (P, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Rail is a deep, chocolate brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color payoff, and it was the most buildable and creamiest of the five. Unfortunately, the wear was still terrible at less than an hour. NARS Last Frontier (P, $24.00) is glossier (95% similar). Urban Decay Demolition (P, $22.00) is glossier (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Mahogany (P, $24.00) is glossier (90% similar). Estee Lauder Blackened Cocoa (LE, $20.00) is warmer (85% similar). Buxom Here's My Number (P, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty (Iron)y (P, $25.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Street is a muted, heavily green-leaning teal with cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture was drier and applied unevenly with semi-opaque coverage. It started to pull into the outer and inner corners of my lower waterline/lash line within an hour. MAC Shade (P, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Fast Lane (P, $5.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Buxom Ring My Bell (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop No Shame, Best O, Call Me Creme Gel Liner & Colours

ColourPop No Shame Creme Gel Liner
ColourPop No Shame Creme Gel Liner

ColourPop No Shame Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “saturated blackened violet.” It’s a muted, blackened plum with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The texture wasn’t as creamy as other pencils in the range, though it wasn’t dry and didn’t tug on the lash line when I tried using it. It had semi-sheer pigmentation in one pass, and it was buildable to semi-opaque coverage, but it didn’t layer as well as I had hoped (it almost lifts the color in places). The color wore well for eight and a half hours on me. The pot version is darker, richer. Stila Black Amethyst (P, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop No Shame (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Ash Violet (DC, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Nightcast (P, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Twilight Night (P, $23.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). Make Up For Ever M80 Matte Plum (P, $21.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop No Shame Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “saturated blackened violet.” It’s a blackened purple with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a lightly creamy consistency–creamy enough that it was pigmented and didn’t skip on the skin, but it dries down very, very quickly and becomes unworkable once it is applied so be patient and careful when using. It wore well for ten hours on me before thinning subtly. Colour Pop No Shame (P, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Stila Black Amethyst (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Ash Violet (DC, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Nightcast (P, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Twilight Night (P, $23.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Make Up For Ever M80 Matte Plum (P, $21.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Best O Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “deepened burgundy.” It’s a dark, burgundy with warm, plummy red undertones and an ultra-matte finish–it’s very flat and appears almost dry. The texture is actually creamy, but it dries down to an all-matte finish with absolutley no sheen. Once it dries down, it is hard to smudge, so it’s an eyeliner that wears better but can be unforgiving if you make mistakes (you’ll need remover to fix!). On me, the eyeliner wore well for nine hours before thinning slightly. The pencil is quite a bit lighter and has a stronger warm tone to it than the pot version. Colour Pop Best O (P, $6.00) is darker (85% similar). Estee Lauder Burgundy Suede (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals 6AM (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Best O Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “deepened burgundy.” It’s a deep, dark burgundy with a slightly muted and a matte finish. It had good color payoff in a single pass and didn’t skip or drag when I applied it to the lower lash line with an angled brush. The color is deeper in the pot form than in the pencil. The color lasted for ten hours without fading or smudging on me. MAC Dark Diversion (DC, $16.00) is darker, glossier (95% similar). Colour Pop Best O (P, $5.00) is lighter (85% similar). bareMinerals 5PM (P, $15.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Earth Sign (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).

MAC Raisinette (P, $17.00) is darker (85% similar). Sephora Love Affair (P, $10.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Macroviolet (P, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Black Plum (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Call Me Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “deep, plummy brown.” It’s a dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a totally flat, matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage in a single stroke, and it was fairly buildable to opaque coverage with two to three layers. The pencil was lightly creamy and didn’t skip or drag on the lash line, despite looking dry in the swatch, it is quite creamy until it dries down (which is almost instantly). This shade wore well for eight and a half hours. It appeared lighter and warmer compared to the pot version. Make Up For Ever M60 Matte Dark Brown (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Makeup Geek Espresso (P, $9.00) is glossier (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #25L (P, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Demolition (P, $20.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar).

ColourPop Call Me Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “deep, plummy brown.” It’s a rich, dark chocolate brown with warm, reddish undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a lightly creamy consistency that made it easy to work with, but it dries down quickly and doesn’t budge after that, so you have to be careful and have a steady-hand to avoid mistakes. Once it dries down, the color doesn’t move. MAC Past Twilight (DC, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Crave (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar).

ColourPop Show Me, Get Paid, Dirty Talk Creme Gel Liner & Colours


ColourPop Show Me Creme Gel Liner
ColourPop Show Me Creme Gel Liner

ColourPop Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is supposed to have a “creamy” texture and “long-lasting wear” with “smooth glide for easy and comfortable waterline application.” The brand cautions not to twist-up too much product, as they are soft enough they’ll break, and I’ll reiterate that this is imperative, as the tip will easily break off if there’s much more than two or three millimeters exposed at a given time. They are creamy and glide on without skipping, and most shades are pretty opaque in a single stroke. Some shades build better than others; the metallic finish tended to be less desirable for building up. The wear ranged from seven to nine hours on the lower lash line. The lighter shades were better on the waterline, but some of the darker and blacker shades showed signs of transfer after six hours on the waterline.

ColourPop Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is supposed to offer the “precision of a liquid with the ease of a gel based formula.” The brand recommends to apply it with a fine synthetic brush and to avoid picking up too much product. They’re supposed to be transfer-resistant and long-wearing. The majority of the range is of a matte finish, but there are a few in the metallic finish. The metallic finish is more emollient and has more slip than the matte finish, which resulted in slightly less intense coverage that was more buildable. All of the shades dry down very quickly, and they don’t work as cream eyeshadows if you want to be able to blend out the edges at all, as they just dry down and flake away rather than smudge. The metallic finish tends to flake away if you try to blend it out, while the matte finish takes longer to do so. Some of the matte shades are drier than others, and some are very pigmented and others need two to three layers of product to achieve true-to-pan intensity. The wear ranges from eight to twelve hours with some shades thinning more noticeably than others.

ColourPop Show Me Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “vivid true copper.” It’s a medium-dark, coppery brown with a metallic sheen. It had opaque coverage in a single pass, but it is applied best in short, quick strokes rather than in layers (or back-and-forth motions) to maximize the opacity. The consistency is creamy, glides right on, and the eyeliner wore well for eight hours. Colour Pop Show Me (P, $6.00)(100% similar). Urban Decay Scorch (P, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Sun Tan (08) (P, $10.00) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Sweet Tooth (LE, $6.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Stila Gilded (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Bountiful Brown (P, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Sunset (P, $25.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Smog (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Brassy (P, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Show Me Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “vivid true copper.” It’s a medium-dark, coppery brown with a metallic sheen. It has a more emollient texture compared to the matte shades in the formula, but it isn’t really slippery or too wet to work with. It worked better applied more heavily and then pulled out, but it can be layered as long as you use a finer brush–nothing fluffy or else it will flake off the product already applied. The color wore well for ten hours before starting to fade. Colour Pop Show Me (P, $5.00)(100% similar). Sephora Sun Tan (08) (P, $10.00) is lighter (95% similar). Stila Gilded (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Sunset (P, $25.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Smog (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

ColourPop Get Paid Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “metallic rose gold.” It’s a medium copper with warm, red undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color coverage in a single pass, and it layered well without skipping on the lash line. The color wore well for eight hours on me. The pencil version seems slightly lighter/more metallic than the pot version. Colour Pop Get Paid (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Giorgio Armani Copper (05) (LE, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Trick (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Sunset (P, $25.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Copperthorn (P, $16.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Get Paid Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “metallic rose gold.” It’s a medium copper with warm, red undertones and a metallic sheen. The pot version has more depth and a richer tone to it than the pencil. It seemed quite emollient, so it was harder to apply in a really opaque line (using a fine synthetic brush), but it was very pigmented when applied with a flat, firm synthetic brush. The color wore well for nine and a half hours, but it seemed prone to flaking off in small chunks after that, which was annoying to catch in my eye. Colour Pop Get Paid (P, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Trick (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Copper (05) (LE, $28.00) is lighter (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Sunset (P, $25.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Copperthorn (P, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Dirty Talk Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “soft metallic gold.” It’s a light-medium, antique gold with subtle, brown undertones and a metallic sheen. The pencil version seems brighter and less brown compared to the pot. It had great color payoff in a single pass, and it was nicely creamy without sliding around. The color wore well for eight hours on me. Colour Pop Dirty Talk (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). bareMinerals 5AM (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Stargazer (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Dirty Talk Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “soft metallic gold.” It’s a light-medium, muted gold with warm, brown undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation, though not fully opaque without two layers, paired with a creamy, lightly emollient consistency that glided on fairly evenly. The color wore well for ten hours on me, and it didn’t come away in flakes (just faded/thinned). Colour Pop Dirty Talk (P, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Gilt Gourmet (DC, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Stargazer (LE, $20.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Stag is a muted, deep brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good color coverage in one pass, and it was buildable to mostly opaque coverage in two layers. The texture was lightly creamy with a slight waxiness that helped it glide across the skin without dragging. On me, the liner lasted for almost nine hours. It was part of Naked on the Run, but this version is much darker and creamier–more pigmented. Urban Decay Corrupt (P, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Cosmic is a bright, pearly white with neutral undertones. It had semi-sheer color payoff, and the texture was on the drier side, so it applied unevenly and thickened on itself in places. If it had been creamier, it could have brightened the lash line well. The color lasted for eight hours before fading. Zoeva The Truth (P, $7.50) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tarina Tarantino Crystal Gun (P, $15.00) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Trick is a slightly muted, medium-dark copper brown with warm undertones and a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. It had great, opaque coverage in a single stroke, and it had a creamy consistency that applied smoothly and evenly without tugging on the lash line. The color wore well for eight and a half hours on me. Colour Pop Get Paid (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Copperthorn (DC, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).

MAC Copperthorn (P, $16.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Supply is a medium-dark, burgundy-brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation in one pass, but it was fully opaque after two layers. The texture was lightly creamy without being too waxy or too slippery, so it still had good wear at eight and a half hours but didn’t drag on the skin. MAC Raven (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Broque (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Bronze (LE, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tarina Tarantino Puppeteer (P, $15.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).
