Bobbi Brown Twilight Night Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner

Bobbi Brown Twilight Night Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “black plum and golden pearl.” It’s a blackened purple with flecks of gold sparkle. When it’s sheered out, it tends to look grayer and almost brown-ish with only a hint of purple. MAC Ash Violet is much lighter and more of a real purple hue. Make Up For Ever #6L is lighter, more red-toned, no gold shimmer. MAC Added Goodness is similar–perhaps a little browner.

MAC Local Wares Fluidline

MAC Local Wares Fluidline ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “dirty olive with multidimensional pearl.” It’s a muted dark brown with a gray tinge and subtle gold sparkle. The sparkle isn’t really noticeable once it is applied. It reminded me of CoverGirl Brown, without the shimmer. This collection seems to lean on the warmer side, but this eyeliner reads cooler on me–it actually looks almost gray when I tried it out.

Lancome Dress-up Teal (401) Liner Design Long Wear Calligraphy Gel Eyeliner

Lancome Dress-up Teal (401) Liner Design Long Wear Calligraphy Gel Eyeliner ($24.50 for 0.07 oz.) is described simply as “turquoise.” It’s a very subtly green-tinted blue, less than what I’d envision teal being (which is a perfect–and hard to achieve–balance of blue and green). If you’re familiar with bluer turquoise gem stones, the color is reminiscent of those. There is a faint teal shimmer throughout. Urban Decay Flipside is a little more teal. It looks like it does in the pot, which is fairly blue, but the name says “teal,” so I was a bit disappointed to see it apply as more of a blue hue.
