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. Colour Pop No Shame (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Stila Black Amethyst (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Nightcast (P, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Ash Violet (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Twilight Night (P, $23.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
