Guerlain Blackjack & Khaki Driver Kohl Contour Eye Pencil

Guerlain Kohl Contour Eye Pencil ($31.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a new formula launching this spring, which will be available in five shades. I tried two of the five, which are reviewed below. The formula is supposed to be long-wearing, water-resistant, creamy, and pigmented. This pencil will need to be sharpened and includes one with the pencil. They’re an average eyeliner; not bad, not ground-breaking–the wear is decent but pigmentation could be better. The texture is a cross between creamy and waxy, so they glide well but still deposit even, smooth color without a lot of work.

Lancome Cote d’Azur & Pluie Drama Liqui-Pencil Eyeliner

Lancome Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner ($23.00 for 0.042 oz.) is supposed to be a richly pigmented, long-wearing (24 hour wear, no seriously, that’s how it’s marketed), waterproof, and creamy pencil eyeliner. This review features the two matte shades I bought, which I felt were longer-wearing compared to the shimmery shades I tried. The texture of the pencils is moderately creamy and doesn’t tug, so they apply nicely and lay down decently color in a single pass. The wear was all over the place for the eyeliners I happened to buy, from five hours to twelve hours. There is still color intact even after fifteen hours, but it was always significantly thinner.

Lancome Paradis & Lame Drama Liqui-Pencil Eyeliner

Lancome Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner ($23.00 for 0.042 oz.) is supposed to be a richly pigmented, long-wearing (24 hour wear, no seriously, that’s how it’s marketed), waterproof, and creamy pencil eyeliner. I bought four shades to try–two shimmery, two more matte–and I’m reviewing the two shimmery shades in this post. The texture of the pencils is moderately creamy and doesn’t tug, so they apply nicely and lay down decently color in a single pass. The wear was all over the place for the eyeliners I happened to buy, from five hours to twelve hours. There is still color intact even after fifteen hours, but it was always significantly thinner.

Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliners (x5)

Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is supposed to be a smooth, pigmented, long-wearing, and waterproof eyeliner. Overall, I liked the formula; it had good wear-time, buildable pigmentation (typically semi-opaque in one stroke), and enough creaminess that there wasn’t any tugging during application. Their color range was a little more unique from the shades I bought, but they also had some more typical shades like black, brown, etc.

ColourPop Puppy, Stomper, Overboard Creme Gel Liner & Colours

ColourPop Puppy Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “vibrant warm orange.” It’s a bright, medium-dark orange with warm, orange-red undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented in one stroke, and the consistency was creamy without being too slippery. This shade is “not recommended for the eye area,” so I tested it as a lip pencil, and it was less comfortable to apply than their actual lip liners but not too difficult. As a lip liner, it was still going strong after six hours. Colour Pop Puppy (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Chanel Cocorange (LE, $29.00) is lighter (85% similar).

ColourPop Kicker, Timber, Swerve Creme Gel Liner & Colours

ColourPop Kicker Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “bright true silver.” It’s a bright, light silver with a metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation in one pass, and it was buildable to mostly opaque coverage in two to three layers. The consistency was soft, smooth, and creamy, so it glided on well and never tugged on the lash line. I was able to get eight hours of wear out of this shade. Urban Decay Cuff (P, $22.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). L'Oreal Silver Sky (290) (P, $8.99) is darker (90% similar). MAC Sterling Silver (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Kicker (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Chrome (LE, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). bareMinerals Certainly Sterling (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Estee Lauder Chrome (LE, $23.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Cuff (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
