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 darker, brighter (90% similar). Colour Pop DTLA (P, $5.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Kat Von D Nerdrum (P, $19.00) is lighter, brighter (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 lighter, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Ransom (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Homie (P, $10.00) is lighter (85% similar). Milani Perfect Purple (P, $6.99) is warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Voodoo (LE, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty (Plum)age (60) (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). Sephora Eccentric Diva (P, $10.00) is lighter, brighter (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 lighter, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Perle de Lune (916) (LE, $30.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC It's Physical (DC, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Pistol (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, warmer (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). Colour Pop Ho Ho (LE, $6.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Homie (P, $10.00) is cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I90 Iridescent Pop Purple (P, $21.00) is warmer (85% similar). NARS St. Marks Place (P, $24.00) is darker, cooler (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. Sephora Tiramisu (P, $10.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Stubborn Brown (P, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Stomper (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #25L (P, $19.00) is darker (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. It was intensely pigmented with a moderately creamy texture that glided on smoothly and evenly, while the quick-drying formula still dried down fast. On me, the color wore well for nine hours before fading. Burberry Chestnut Brown No. 02 (P, $29.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Rich Experience (P, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Long Espresso (P, $17.00) is glossier (95% similar). Urban Decay Demolition (P, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Chocolate (LE, $24.00) is darker (95% similar).

Urban Decay Demolition (P, $22.00) is darker, cooler, glossier (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

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. The pigmentation was fantastic, while the texture was lightly creamy and smooth and glided on with even coverage and never tugged on the lash line. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me. Urban Decay Hustle (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Bronze (LE, $24.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Groundbreaker (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Plank (P, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Roach (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (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. MAC Groundbreaker (P, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Bronze (LE, $24.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Roach (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Rich Ground (DC, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Hustle (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% 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). L'Oreal Silver Sky (290) (P, $8.99) is darker (90% similar). MAC Sterling Silver (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (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).

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). Urban Decay Lure (P, $20.00) 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 less pigmented, warmer, lower quality (95% similar). NARS London (P, $24.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Lure (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). NARS Madison Ave. (P, $24.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

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. MAC Blacktrack (P, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Black Ice (P, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M10 Matte Black (P) is darker (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.

ColourPop Fast Lane Creme Gel Liner
ColourPop Fast Lane Creme Gel Liner

ColourPop Fast Lane Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as an “intense blackened teal.” It’s a muted, dark bluish-teal with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation in one pass with a lightly creamy consistency that didn’t tug at the lash line. The color wore well for eight hours on me before thinning. It is a little more teal-leaning than the pot version. Colour Pop Fast Lane (P, $6.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Street (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Street (P, $22.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). bareMinerals 1PM (LE, $15.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Shade (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar).

ColourPop Fast Lane Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as an “intense blackened teal.” It’s a dark, bluish-teal with cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a creamy consistency that was easy to work with and didn’t look jagged on the edges when applied (I used a thin eyeliner brush). When I wore it on my lower lash line, it stayed on well for nine hours before smudging. Colour Pop Fast Lane (P, $5.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (95% similar). bareMinerals 1PM (LE, $15.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Suede Shoes (P, $10.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Street (P, $22.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar).

ColourPop Zulu Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “vivid pastel sea foam green.” It’s a bright, light-medium aqua blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, and the consistency was creamy and smooth, so it glided on well, but it didn’t go on as evenly as I would have liked. On me, this shade starts to fade after seven hours. Colour Pop Zulu (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M30 Matte Pastel Green (P, $21.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (90% similar). Stila Turquoise (P, $22.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Makeup Geek Mint (P, $9.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Zulu Baby Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “vivid pastel sea foam green.” It’s a bright, light-medium aqua blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It is very similar in color to the pencil form, and it also performs similarly, just slightly better, as the texture was creamier and the product more pigmented. It wore well for eight hours. Colour Pop Zulu (P, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M30 Matte Pastel Green (P, $21.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek Mint (P, $9.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Stila Turquoise (P, $22.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Work Out Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “blackened forest green.” It’s a blackened green with hints of olive and an ultra-matte finish. This was moderately dry, which gave it a stiffer feel when used on the skin, so it tugged. It also looked jagged along the edges and needed to be smudged or cleaned-up to get a crisp edge. It lasted for seven hours on me. Colour Pop Bustier (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Work Out (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Cult (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Bustier (LE, $6.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Hunter (P, $24.00) is darker, warmer, glossier (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Work Out Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “blackened forest green.” It’s a deep, forest green with cool undertones and a matte finish. It is lighter, brighter, and more cool-toned (less brow/olive) compared to the pencil. It could have been creamier and smoother to work with, as it tended to skip if I wasn’t careful. This shade wore well for eight hours before fading. Colour Pop Bustier (LE, $5.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Work Out (P, $5.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Cult (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Bustier (LE, $6.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (80% similar). Bobbi Brown Hunter (P, $24.00) is darker, warmer, glossier (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Maybe Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “vibrant grass green.” It’s a brightened, lime green with warm, yellow undertones and a cooler over-tone and a matte finish. This seemed a little more subdued and less yellow-based compared to the pot version. It had semi-sheer color payoff, which was buildable to truer color after two to three layers. This shade wore well for eight hours. Colour Pop Maybe (DC, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Ardency Inn Grass (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Kush (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Maybe Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “vibrant grass green.” It’s a brightened, medium green with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. The pot’s consistency was drier than a lot of other shades I’ve tried, and it was harder to get good coverage that was even without really loading up the brush. This one was prone to flaking away instead of more evenly fading over time. Ardency Inn Grass (P, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Maybe (DC, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Kush (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Piggy Bank, Cry Baby, Boots Creme Gel Liner & Colours

ColourPop Piggy Bank Creme Gel Liner
ColourPop Piggy Bank Creme Gel Liner

ColourPop Piggy Bank Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “vivid red violet.” It’s a medium-dark, pinky purple with warm undertones and a matte finish. So, this shade is “not recommended for the eye area.” Effectively, that kind of makes it a lip liner, I suppose. I wore it as such, and it was a little drying and clingy, but it lasted for six hours and was still going strong (just was not particularly comfortable). Colour Pop Piggy Bank (DC, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Stila Violet (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). Sephora Purple Stilettos (P, $10.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Orchid (P, $9.00) is lighter, more muted, warmer (80% similar). L'Oreal Pure Purple (240) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Piggy Bank Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “vivid red violet.” It’s a medium-dark, pinky purple with an ultra-matte finish. The texture was dry and harder to apply; it tended to skip and drag with really jagged edges even when I really loaded up a very fine eyeliner brush with product. This one is “not recommended for the eye area,” so I tested it as a lip liner, but it was pretty weird to do so as it was almost chalk-like on the lips. It seemed long-wearing from that test; these are the uncertain results you get when a product seems like one thing but is specifically not. Colour Pop Piggy Bank (DC, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). L'Oreal Pure Purple (240) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Stila Violet (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Sephora Purple Stilettos (P, $10.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek Orchid (P, $9.00) is lighter, more muted, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Cry Baby Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned pastel lavender.” It’s a light-medium, lavender purple with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, but it had a drier texture that was harder to layer/build-up without it making the layer underneath it uneven. The color wore well for seven and a half hours. Colour Pop Cry Baby (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M92 Matte Pastel Purple (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Cry Baby Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned pastel lavender.” It’s a light-medium, lavender purple with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a smooth, creamy consistency that glided on well without dragging. The dry down is quite matte, and the white base of this comes through a lot on my skin tone at that point. It lasted for eight hours on me. Colour Pop Cry Baby (P, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M92 Matte Pastel Purple (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Boots Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “true hot pink.” It’s a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation in a single stroke, and it had a lightly creamy texture that helped it apply smoothly without tugging on the skin. That being said, this shade was also “not recommended for the eye area.” I tested it as a lip liner, and it lasted for over six hours, but it was drying. Colour Pop Boots (DC, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora On Wednesdays We Wear Pink (P, $14.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Woodstock (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). MAC Process Magenta (P, $16.00) is darker (80% similar). Chanel Berry Lucky (LE, $29.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Boots Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “true hot pink.” It’s a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool undertones and a matte finish. Again, this shade is “not recommended for the eye area.” I tried to use it as a lip liner, but there’s a dryness about the gel eyeliners when they are applied to lips that makes it feel less like a traditional lip liner (whereas the liner is comparable to a lip pencil). This had good pigmentation, and the consistency was lightly creamy without being too firm or dry in the pot. It seemed to wear a solid six to eight hours. Colour Pop Boots (DC, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Sephora On Wednesdays We Wear Pink (P, $14.00) is cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Woodstock (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Chanel Berry Lucky (LE, $29.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Process Magenta (P, $16.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop DTLA, Bee Sting, Prance Creme Gel Colour & Liners

ColourPop DTLA Creme Gel Liner
ColourPop DTLA Creme Gel Liner

ColourPop DTLA Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “deep blackened blue.” It’s a deep, navy blue with very fine pearl. It had good color coverage in one pass, and the texture of the eyeliner was creamy, so it glided on without tugging on the lash line. I was able to wear it for a full eight hours before it started to thin along the outer edge. Marc Jacobs Beauty (Wave)length (68) (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals Noon (P, $15.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Sudsy (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Petrol Blue (P, $15.00) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar). MAC Waveline (DC, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). NARS Darklight (P, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Blue Stripe (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Sabbath (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Colour Pop DTLA (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Buxom Pick Me Up (P, $17.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). Zoeva Female Attraction (P, $7.50) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Sephora Sailor Suit (P, $10.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). MAC Cool Jazz (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop DTLA Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “deep blackened blue.” It’s a darker, blackened navy blue with a mostly matte finish. I didn’t notice any pearl in this shade, whereas the pencil form definitely has some! This also appeared more muted, a bit darker. It was richly pigmented with a lightly creamy consistency that applied smoothly. The formula is quick-drying, so it doesn’t work as a base in my experience, and you’ll want to apply one eye at a time. It lasted for eight and a half hours as an eyeliner. Estee Lauder Blackened Sapphire (LE, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Giorgio Armani #3 (P, $29.00) is glossier (95% similar). NARS Darklight (P, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Waveline (DC, $16.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Urban Decay Sabbath (P, $20.00) is glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop DTLA (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Bee Sting Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as an “intense turquoise blue.” It’s a medium-dark, true blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had very nice pigmentation in a single stroke, and the consistency was creamy and smooth. The color wore well for eight hours before thinning on me. NARS Curacao (P, $24.00)(95% similar). MAC Hi-Def Cyan (P, $16.00) is glossier (95% similar). Stila Cobalt (P, $22.00) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Bee Sting (DC, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Most Wanted (LE, $24.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Bee Sting Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as an “intense turquoise blue.” It’s a rich, medium-dark blue with a semi-matte finish. I think the gel eyeliner is deeper and has more depth, partially because it is more pigmented. The texture of the gel was creamy, lightweight, but it will dry down fast, so you’ll want to work quickly and probably one eye at a time. It glides on well, though, and it doesn’t drag or skip. Once on, the color wore well for nine hours before starting to fade. NARS Curacao (P, $24.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Hi-Def Cyan (P, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Bee Sting (P, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Stila Cobalt (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Most Wanted (LE, $24.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Prance Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “bright periwinkle blue.” It’s a bright, medium cornflower blue with a matte finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with a lightly creamy consistency, though it was less creamy compared to the majority of the range. I found it hard to build-up coverage with this one without lifting the layer beneath it. The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Colour Pop Prance (P, $6.00) is more pigmented, better quality (95% similar). Kat Von D Nietzsche (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Prance Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “bright periwinkle blue.” It’s a bright, medium cornflower blue with a matte finish. It had fairly good pigmentation, though the texture was a little denser and less creamy compared to other shades in the formulation. It definitely applies better and with better coverage than the pencil. This shade wore well for nine hours on me before fading. Colour Pop Prance (P, $5.00) is less pigmented, lower quality (95% similar). Kat Von D Nietzsche (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
