Guerlain Blackjack & Khaki Driver Kohl Contour Eye Pencil

Guerlain Blackjack Kohl Contour Eye Pencil
Guerlain Blackjack 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.

Guerlain Blackjack Kohl Contour Eye Pencil ($31.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark black with a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage and lasted for eight hours on me. The consistency was creamy and smooth enough to glide on easily. Colour Pop Swerve (P, $6.00) is less glossy, darker, less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Swerve (P, $5.00) is cooler (95% similar). Guerlain Black Jack (01) (P, $30.00) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M10 Matte Black (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Smolder (P, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Buxom Call Me (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Perversion (P, $20.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). MAC Blacktrack (P, $16.00) is less glossy, darker (90% similar). Stila Stingray (P, $22.00) is glossier, darker (90% similar). MAC Black Brilliance (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). bareMinerals Midnight (LE, $15.00) is darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever M10 Matte Black (P) is less glossy, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Perversion (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Black Black (P, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). bareMinerals Absolute Black (P) is warmer (90% similar).

MAC Graphblack (P, $16.00) is less glossy, darker (85% similar). Too Faced Perfect Black (P, $18.00) is darker (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Guerlain Khaki Driver Kohl Contour Eye Pencil ($31.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark olive green with warm undertones and fine gold sparkle. It had semi-sheer color payoff in one pass, which was buildable to fully opaque color with three layers (this one is best applied in back-and-forth motions). The texture was smooth, creamy, and didn’t tug at the lash line. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. MAC Army Style (P, $16.00) is warmer, darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Sephora Roof Top Party (P, $10.00) is warmer (85% similar). Sephora Snakeskin Dress (17) (DC, $10.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Forever Green (P, $16.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty O(vert) (56) (P, $25.00) is darker (80% similar). bareMinerals 10AM (LE, $15.00) is darker (80% similar). L'Oreal Green Ivy (270) (P, $8.99) is warmer, darker (80% similar).

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

Lancome Cote d'Azur Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner
Lancome Cote d’Azur Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear 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 Cote d’Azur Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner ($23.00 for 0.042 oz.) is described as a “blue Klein.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark cobalt blue with cool undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, which was somewhat buildable–it appeared brighter and more intense–but coverage was always somewhat translucent. The consistency was creamy and easy to apply without tugging on the lash line, and the eyeliner wore well for twelve hours on me before it started to fade/thin with decent color still apparent at fifteen hours. It was gone by morning (24 hours). Sephora Sea If I Care (P, $14.00) is brighter, darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Chaos (P, $22.00) is glossier (95% similar). MAC Royal Wink (LE, $16.00) is brighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Chaos (P, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Out of the Blue (P, $25.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Most Wanted (LE, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Flourish Me Bold (LE, $18.00) is darker (90% similar). Ardency Inn Dark Blue (P, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). L'Oreal Cobalt Blue (250) (P, $8.99) is darker (85% similar). Make Up For Ever M22 Matte Majorelle Blue (P, $21.00) is darker, less shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Lancome Pluie Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner ($23.00 for 0.042 oz.) is described as a “grey.” It’s a medium-dark, taupe brown with warm undertones and a strong gray overtone paired with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque coverage in one pass, which was buildable to mostly opaque coverage. The texture was creamy and applied without pulling on the lash line. It dried down and was budge-proof for twelve hours before breaking down, where it would fade/thin over the next several hours. It had nearly all but disappeared by the 24-hour mark. Urban Decay Desperation (P, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever S50 Satiny Taupe (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Shoreline (P, $17.00) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty (Iron)y (P, $25.00) is darker (85% similar). Zoeva Mute (P, $7.50) is cooler, lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Stray Dog (LE, $20.00) is lighter, more shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Lancome Paradis & Lame Drama Liqui-Pencil Eyeliner

Lancome Paradis Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner
Lancome Paradis Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear 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.

Lancome Paradis Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner ($23.00 for 0.042 oz.) is described as a “pearlized tropical green.” It’s a medium-dark, bluish-teal with sparkle over a frosted sheen. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, though it was buildable to more opaque coverage with two to three layers. This shade flakes severely on me, throughout the day, after four to five hours of wear. There was still noticeable color left behind ten hours later, but there were also tons of small teal flakes underneath my eyes, and some of those flakes ended up in my eyes over the course I wore the liner for. This is, of course, the most obviously “me” color, and as much as I wanted to love it, it did not love me at all. This was the worst-performing of the four I tested. It’s so rare for me to test an eyeliner and have it flake off on me, and in vain, I tried this one half a dozen times and got the same results each time. MAC New Marine (P, $17.00)(90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Ody(sea) (62) (P, $25.00) is cooler, brighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #52L (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Makeup Geek Ocean (P, $9.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Blue Noon (LE, $16.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Sephora Fairytale (P, $10.00) is darker, less shimmery (80% similar). Stila Jade (P, $22.00) is warmer, darker (80% similar). Sephora Good Mood (P, $10.00) is warmer, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Lancome Lamé Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner ($23.00 for 0.042 oz.) is described as a “metallic white gold.” It’s a light, champagne gold with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a moderately waxy, thin base, which seemed to make it harder to apply evenly or layer for opaque coverage. The more I applied, the more uneven it appeared. The wear was better, and I didn’t encounter flaking as this thinned over time. On me, this shade wore for ten hours well before it really started to fade/thin. Estee Lauder Pearl (P, $28.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Blonde Ambition (P, $10.00) is cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Venus (P, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Chilled (DC, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Snowed In (P, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliners (x5)

Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliners
Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliners

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.

Female Attraction is a muted, medium-dark navy blue with subtle cool tones (it looks like “warmer” blue, even though it is still cool-toned) paired with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation in a single pass, and the texture was creamy enough to glide easily but not smudge all over the place. The color wore well for eight hours on me before thinning. Urban Decay Mainline (P, $20.00) is brighter, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop DTLA (P, $5.00) is cooler, darker (85% similar). Kat Von D Nerdrum (P, $19.00) is brighter, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

New Jewels is a bright, violet purple with lavender and purple micro-glitter. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, while it was buildable to mostly opaque coverage. The texture was creamy enough for a comfortable, tug-free application. On me, the color wore well for nine hours, but there was some migration of sparkles over time. Colour Pop Ho Ho (LE, $6.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Designer Purple (P, $15.00) is warmer, lighter (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty (Grape)vine (P, $25.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Ransom (LE, $20.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Voodoo (LE, $20.00) is warmer, lighter (85% similar). Milani Perfect Purple (P, $6.99) is warmer (85% similar). Kat Von D Homie (P, $10.00) is lighter (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty (Plum)age (60) (P, $25.00) is warmer, lighter, more shimmery (80% similar). Sephora Eccentric Diva (P, $10.00) is brighter, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Nude Reflection is a medium, taupe brown with warm undertones and lighter taupe frosted shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one pass, and I was able to build it to mostly opaque coverage with two to three layers. It was lightly creamy with good glide and even coverage when applied to the lower lash line. This was my personal favorite of the five I bought to try, but I live in a world that I feel is lacking in taupe eyeliner! The color wore well for eight and a half hours. Urban Decay Mushroom (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Grey Tide (P, $17.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). MAC It's Physical (DC, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Chanel Perle de Lune (916) (LE, $33.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Pistol (P, $20.00) is warmer, less shimmery (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Opulence is a slightly muted, medium-dark copper red with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good color payoff in a single stroke. The texture was creamy, which made it easy to apply. It wore well for nine hours on me before thinning. I couldn’t think of any dupes for this one! Urban Decay Fireball (P, $22.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Regency is a medium-dark, cool-ttoned violet purple with fine shimmer. It had sheer pigmentaiton in a single stroke, and it was much more emollient compared to the other shades–it had more slip. I was able to build-up the color to semi-opaque coverage with three layers of product, and it still wore well (eight hours), but it was the least pigmented of the five. Urban Decay Ransom (LE, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Homie (P, $10.00) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Ho Ho (LE, $6.00) is cooler, darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I90 Iridescent Pop Purple (P, $21.00) is warmer (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty (Grape)vine (P, $25.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). NARS St. Marks Place (P, $24.00) is cooler, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Puppy, Stomper, Overboard Creme Gel Liner & Colours

ColourPop Puppy Creme Gel Liner
ColourPop Puppy Creme Gel Liner

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 (DC, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Chanel Cocorange (LE, $29.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Puppy Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “vibrant warm orange.” It’s a bright, medium-dark orange with warm, orange-red undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good color payoff with a creamy texture that was easy to work with and draw thin lines with… except this shade is “not recommended for the eye area.” It felt a bit weird applying this more as a lip liner, and it was drying over the six hours it lasted. Colour Pop Puppy (DC, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Chanel Cocorange (LE, $29.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Stomper Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned brown.” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff in one pass, which was buildable to mostly opaque coverage in two to three layers. It was lighter and less intense compared to the pot version. The consistency was lightly creamy, but I wish it had been creamier. The color lasted for eight hours. Chanel Mat Taupe (932) (P, $33.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Tiramisu (P, $10.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Stubborn Brown (P, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Broque (P, $16.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar).

ColourPop Stomper Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned brown.” It’s a dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a mostly matte finish.

On me, the color wore well for nine hours before fading. Urban Decay Demolition (P, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Rich Experience (P, $20.00) is darker (95% similar).

ColourPop Overboard Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “warm metallic bronze.” It’s a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen.

Urban Decay Hustle (LE, $20.00) is lighter, more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Roach (P, $20.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar).

ColourPop Overboard Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “warm metallic bronze.” It’s a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It was just as pigmented as the pencil, but it seemed less reflective and a little darker as a result. The consistency was creamy without being too slippery, but I wish it was just a hair creamier. This one lasted for nine hours on me. Bobbi Brown Bronze (LE, $24.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Groundbreaker (P, $17.00) is cooler, lighter (95% similar).

ColourPop Kicker, Timber, Swerve Creme Gel Liner & Colours

ColourPop Kicker Creme Gel Liner
ColourPop Kicker Creme Gel Liner

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). bareMinerals Certainly Sterling (LE) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Sterling Silver (P, $16.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Estee Lauder Chrome (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Chrome (LE, $24.00) is darker (90% similar).

ColourPop Kicker Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “bright true silver.” It’s a bright, light silver with a metallic sheen. The pot version seemed slightly darker than the pencil version. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a lightly creamy consistency that applied well without having drier, jagged edges, but it still dries down quickly, so I don’t think it works well as a base. This shade stayed on well for nine hours. L'Oreal Silver Sky (290) (P, $8.99) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Kicker (P, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals Certainly Sterling (LE) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar).

ColourPop Timber Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned slate grey.” It’s a dark gray with cool undertones and a bluish tinge paired with a matte finish. It had a drier consistency that tugged on the lash line when I tried to apply it. The color payoff was semi-sheer, though it was buildable to semi-opaque coverage. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours before fading. Urban Decay Mood (P, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M14 Matte Charcoal Grey (P, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar).

ColourPop Timber Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned slate grey.” It’s a dark gray with cool undertones and a bluish tinge paired with a mostly matte finish. The texture was lightly creamy, and it glided on without dragging or becoming uneven. It seemed a little richer compared to the pencil. On me, it stayed on well for eight and a half hours. Make Up For Ever M14 Matte Charcoal Grey (P, $21.00)(100% similar). Urban Decay Mood (P, $20.00) is lower quality, warmer, less pigmented (95% similar). Urban Decay Lure (P, $20.00) is warmer, lighter (95% similar). NARS London (P, $24.00) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Timber (DC, $5.00) is cooler, darker (90% similar). NARS Madison Ave. (P, $24.00) is cooler, lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Swerve Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “true onyx black.” It’s a medium black with a mostly matte finish. It was smooth and glided on without tugging, but it seemed almost waxy, as it just didn’t yield that much payoff in one stroke. Even building it up, it wasn’t that intense. It wore well for eight hours. Make Up For Ever M10 Matte Black (P) is darker (95% similar). MAC Blacktrack (P, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Guerlain Blackjack (P, $31.00) is warmer (95% similar).

ColourPop Swerve Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “true onyx black.” It’s a deep, dark black with cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a nice creaminess that made it easy to apply. This shade still dried down quickly, as the gel pots tend to do, so you’ll want to work quickly.
