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. MAC Blue Stripe (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Sudsy (LE, $16.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals Noon (P, $15.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Darklight (P, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Waveline (DC, $16.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Petrol Blue (P, $15.00) is brighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty (Wave)length (68) (P, $25.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Sabbath (P, $20.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Colour Pop DTLA (P, $6.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). MAC Cool Jazz (P, $16.00) is brighter, lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Buxom Pick Me Up (P, $17.00) is warmer, lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Sephora Sailor Suit (P, $10.00) is warmer, more shimmery (85% similar). Zoeva Female Attraction (P, $7.50) is warmer, lighter (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. Giorgio Armani #3 (P, $29.00) is glossier (95% similar). Estee Lauder Blackened Sapphire (LE, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Darklight (P, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Waveline (DC, $16.00) is glossier, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Sabbath (P, $20.00) is glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop DTLA (P, $5.00) is lighter, more shimmery (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 cooler, darker (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 cooler, darker (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 better quality, more pigmented (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 lower quality, less pigmented (95% similar). Kat Von D Nietzsche (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Marc Jacobs The Sky-Liner Holiday 2015 Highliner Eyeliner Set (Update)

Marc Jacobs The Sky-Liner Holiday 2015 Highliner Eyeliner Set
Marc Jacobs The Sky-Liner Holiday 2015 Highliner Eyeliner Set

UPDATE:  Marc Jacobs Beauty has fixed packaging issues that resulted in the eyeliner formula drying out.  I found the following posted as a “review” on the product listing for the Highliner Eyeliner Set. I also purchased another set after I noticed Sephora restocked, and I can personally confirm that the eyeliners are much improved!  They feel and apply consistently with the better Marc Jacobs Highliners I have used in the past, not dry at all.  All seven shades were creamy and glided-on without tugging. Here’s hoping the full-sized eyeliners make it back soon as well.  Of course, I would have preferred to have seen MJB make the same overture as Bite Beauty did earlier this year and resend the non-defective set to customers who purchased a defective set. The review below has NOT been updated to reflect the update at this time.

Hi Beauty Insiders,

Thank you for your review. The Sky-Liner Petite Highliner Gel Eye Crayon collection that is now available at Sephora is completely new and updated. Recently, Highliner experienced a temporary production issue with the cap—it wasn’t airtight, and was causing the formula to dry out. This issue is now fixed. Marc Jacobs Beauty pulled all Highliners from stores, reproduced them, tested them, and replaced them, including The Sky-Liner Set. We are so sorry if you have had a bad experience. We are confident that we have addressed the issue and we hope that you continue to love Highliner.

The Marc Jacobs Beauty Team

Marc Jacobs Holiday 2015 The Sky-Liner Highliner Gel Crayon Set ($48.00 for 0.07 oz.) includes seven, travel-sized eyeliners; two shades are limited edition and exclusive to the set, while five are from the permanent range. I don’t see it on Sephora currently, but it is still available through Marc Jacobs directly. I was really disappointed by the set, because every single eyeliner was dry as a bone when swatched to the point where just trying to swatch it resulted in all but one of the eyeliner’s tips breaking off. After the tip broke, the eyeliners were soft and creamy, which is why it’s so frustrating that the exterior coating to the pencil is so bad that it completely impedes the product’s performance. The one eyeliner that didn’t break still remains firmer and harder to use after three uses. This makes it harder to rate, because unless you break off the tip, they’re difficult and poor-performing, but since by the nature of just how firm they were, they inevitably broke (without me trying at all; in fact, I was trying NOT to!) and were much better. I’ve found that the full-sized, permanent formula has similar issues where some shades are creamy and easy-to-apply from the get-go and others are drier, firmer (and some have never gotten better for me). This inconsistency is the worst part about an otherwise impressive formula that wears nine to ten hours and comes in an assortment of more unique shades (some are more typical shades, of course). I didn’t have such significant texture issues with last year’s set. That being said, you will find the scores reflecting that these are not of the same quality as others I have tried (primarily in the overall quality and texture scores).

In the set, each pencil contains 0.37g/0.01 oz. while the full-sized eyeliners are 0.5g/0.01 oz. When I convert grams to ounces (using Google), 0.37g is really 0.0131 oz. and 0.5g is really 0.0176 oz. So this set contains 0.0917 oz. worth of eyeliner, or $130.26 worth of eyeliner. Or, if you’re not apt to finish products, for less than the cost of two shades, you get to try seven.

In the Buff is described as a “champagne shimmer.” It’s a light-medium, golden champagne with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff in one stroke, and it was fairly buildable to mostly opaque coverage. The texture was firm initially, but after the tip broke off, it was creamier and easier to apply. It wore well for nine hours on me. Sephora Girl Talk (P, $10.00) is darker (95% similar). Estee Lauder Pearl (P, $28.00) is brighter, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Express-Oh! is described as a “espresso shimmer.” It’s a blackened brown with subtle, gold pearl and a more satin-like sheen overall. It had semi-opaque coverage but was very, very stiff to work with and tugged on the lash line. This was the only pencil that didn’t have the tip break on me just by swatching lightly on my arm, and after three uses, it still remains pretty firm to use. It wore for ten hours without fading or smudging. MAC Rich Experience (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Crave (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Demolition (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Burberry Chestnut Brown No. 02 (P, $29.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Colour Pop Stomper (P, $6.00) is lighter (90% similar). Buxom Here's My Number (P, $17.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Stag (LE, $20.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Burberry Midnight Brown (P, $27.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Past Twilight (DC, $16.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Dark Force (P, $22.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Lush (P, $20.00) is less glossy, less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Last Frontier (P, $24.00) is cooler, darker (90% similar). MAC Long Espresso (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Sephora Diving in Malaysia (18) (P, $10.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Boys & Berry is described as a “boysenberry shimmer.” It’s a muted, dark plum purple with warm undertones and gold and eggplant-hued shimmer. It had so-so pigmentation in a single stroke, which was somewhat buildable but never opaque on the lash line. It had the same frustrating, firmer texture that snapped the tip off and revealed a creamier center. It lasted for ten hours. Urban Decay Rockstar (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Love Affair (P, $10.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Strong Willed (P, $20.00) is warmer, darker, less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Macroviolet (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarina Tarantino Ultraviolet (P, $15.00) is darker, less shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals 6AM (LE, $15.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). Stila Black Amethyst (P, $22.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Nightshade (DC, $16.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). NARS Bourbon Street (P, $24.00) is lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Sephora Bling Bling (P, $14.00) is cooler, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

(Stone)fox is described as a “metal gray.” It’s a dark, warm gray with silver sparkle and shimmer. The version in the set seemed to have more shimmer than the one I have in the full-size. The texture was firm until the tip broke off (just lightly swatching!! after the first broke, I was trying even harder not to break them, ha!), and the interior part of the portion was creamier but had some texture to it due to the amount of sparkle. It had semi-opaque coverage that built up to opaque coverage after two to three layers. It lasted for nine hours with some shimmer fall out.
MAC Coin Operated (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Uzi (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Little Black Bow (DC, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Gris Scintillante (P, $29.00) is cooler (95% similar). bareMinerals Steadfast Slate (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Moonspoon (LE, $20.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Clay (P, $16.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). Stila Triggerfish (P, $22.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Steelpoint (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Palm Tree (LE, $17.50) is cooler, darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Buxom I'll Be Waiting (P, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). Sephora Starry Sky (P, $10.00) is cooler (85% similar). MAC Counterfeit (P, $16.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Blacquer is described as a “black.” It’s a deep black with neutral undertones and a satin finish. The consistency was firm, and even after the tip snapped off, it wasn’t as creamy as the full-sized version I have (which is VERY creamy!). It lasted for ten hours, at least, but I wish the texture and color payoff were more comparable to the full-sized version. Make Up For Ever M10 Matte Black (P) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Superfly (P, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Zoeva Black to Earth (P, $7.50) is glossier, lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Perfect Black (P, $18.00) is lighter (95% similar). Sephora Black Lace (P, $10.00) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Black (P, $20.00) is glossier (95% similar). Ardency Inn Black (P, $19.00) is less glossy (95% similar). NARS Black Moon (P, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Obsidian (P, $9.00) is lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals Absolute Black (P) is lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Puro Amor (P, $10.00) is lighter (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

(Wave)length is described as a “midnight blue.” It’s a medium-dark, navy blue with a pearly shimmer. It had semi-sheer coverage in a single stroke, which was buildable to semi-opaque pigmentation after two to three passes. The texture was firm until the tip broke off, and then the center was creamier and easier to use without tugging on the lash line. It wore well for nine and a half hours on me. Stila Ultramarine (P, $22.00) is brighter (95% similar). Sephora Sailor Suit (P, $10.00) is darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #3L (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop DTLA (P, $5.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Sudsy (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Buxom Pick Me Up (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Ocean Liner (P, $17.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). MAC Blue Stripe (LE, $16.00) is darker, less shimmery (80% similar). MAC Petrol Blue (P, $15.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Ody(sea) is described as a “teal green.” It’s a bright, green-leaning teal with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage, and the texture was firm and comparable to the firmness I experienced with the full-sized version, though after the tip snapped off while swatching, it was very creamy but almost thick to the point where it layered on itself unevenly. It wore for ten hours on me. MAC New Marine (P, $17.00) is cooler, darker (90% similar). Lancome Paradis (P, $23.00) is warmer, more muted (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I32 Iridescent Lagoon Green (P, $21.00) is more muted, darker (85% similar). Makeup Geek Ocean (P, $9.00) is cooler, darker (85% similar).

Sephora Fairytale (P, $10.00) is cooler, darker (80% similar). Make Up For Ever #52L (LE, $19.00) is cooler, darker, less shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Charlotte Tilbury On the Prowl + Supernova Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise

Charlotte Tilbury On the Prowl + Supernova Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise
Charlotte Tilbury On the Prowl + Supernova Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise

Charlotte Tilbury On the Prowl + Supernova Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise ($39.00 for 0.08 oz.) consists of a deep, taupe brown eyehadow paired with a violet eyeliner. The eyeshadow is the better of the two products. Here’s hoping that Charlotte Tilbury will sell the products individually some day.

On the Prowl is described as an “antique aubergine.” It’s a dark, smoky taupe brown with subtle, cool undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good pigmentation with a really soft, blendable texture that was a little dry in the pan, but it didn’t look dry on the skin. The color wore well for close to eight hours before I noticed fading. Dior Aventure (081) (P, $31.00) is darker (95% similar). Chanel Tisse Rhapsodie #4 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Giorgio Armani #4 (P, $33.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC 2x Dare #5 (LE) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Gabrielle #1 (P) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury The Huntress (LE) is warmer, lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Vaporize (LE, $19.00) is lighter (85% similar). Milani Bella Charcoal (11) (P, $4.49) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Viseart Saint Germain (P) is cooler (85% similar). Anastasia Antique (LE, $12.00) is lighter (85% similar). Dior Univers (655) (LE, $32.00) is warmer, lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Supernova is described as a “smoky plum.” It’s a blackened purple base with lighter purple and violet sparkle. The consistency was drier, which resulted in a very dragged-out, uneven color that was sheer and hard to build-up. On me, what I managed to get on the skin did last for seven and a half hours with some sparkle fall out. Sephora Phat Rock (P, $14.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Delinquent (P, $20.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Stila Purple Tang (P, $22.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Night Bird (P, $24.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Permaplum (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Tarina Tarantino Cute Robot (P, $15.00) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Exit & Punch Creme Gel Liner & Colours

ColourPop Exit Creme Gel Liner
ColourPop Exit Creme Gel Liner

ColourPop Exit Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “true bright white.” It’s a bright white with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It was mostly opaque in a single stroke, and it was buildable to totally opaque coverage. The texture was creamy and glided on without tugging on the lash line. It lasted for nine hours on me. Stila Alpine (P, $22.00) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Exit (DC, $6.00) is lower quality, cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay Bump (P, $22.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Fascinating (P, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M16 Matte White (P, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar). NARS Santa Monica Blvd. (P, $24.00) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Polar Ice (P, $17.00) is more muted, more shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Exit Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “true bright white.” It is a bright white with cool undertones and a matte finish; it seemed more matte and a little starker compared to the pencil version. The consistency is lightly creamy with enough slip to glide across the skin with an angled liner brush without skipping, but it dries down very quickly so there isn’t a lot of room for error or blending out edges. Once dry, it was still going strong after ten hours of wear. Make Up For Ever M16 Matte White (P, $21.00)(100% similar). Colour Pop Exit (P, $5.00) is better quality, warmer (95% similar). Stila Alpine (P, $22.00) is brighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Bump (P, $22.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Fascinating (P, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Santa Monica Blvd. (P, $24.00) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Polar Ice (P, $17.00) is more muted, more shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Punch Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “brilliant canary yellow.” It’s a bright, sunshine yellow with a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single pass (which is impressive for any liner, especially a yellow one!). The texture of the pencil was soft, smooth, and creamy, which helped it apply smoothly and evenly on the lash line. The color wore well for eight and a half hours before thinning. Colour Pop Punch (DC, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Banana Split (10) (P, $10.00) is darker (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Punch Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “brilliant canary yellow.” It’s a bright, sunshine yellow with a matte finish. It’s totally opaque, and the texture was lightly creamy without being too slippery, which helped it yield really smooth, even, opaque coverage yet it didn’t drag or skip. When I wore it, the color was still going strong after ten hours of wear. Colour Pop Punch (P, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Sephora Banana Split (10) (P, $10.00) is lighter (95% similar).

Charlotte Tilbury Midnight Seduction + Sapphire Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise

Charlotte Tilbury Midnight Seduction + Sapphire Sex Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise

Charlotte Tilbury Midnight Seduction + Sapphire Sex Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise ($39.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a navy blue-themed duo, featuring a powder eyeshadow and pencil eyeliner. The eyeshadow is nice, but the eyeliner was a miss.

Midnight Seduction is described as a “sparkling midnight blue.” It’s a deep, bluish charcoal gray with cool undertones and lighter, navy blue and silver shimmer and sparkle. It had great pigmentation with a soft, lightly dry texture that was fairly blendable and easy to use. It sheers out just slightly when I applied it to the lid. On me, the color started to fade after seven and a half hours. Urban Decay Time (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). LORAC Slate (P, $19.00) is cooler, darker (95% similar).

Charlotte Tilbury Silver Leopard + Black Magic Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise

Charlotte Tilbury Silver Leopard + Black Magic Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise ($39.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a duo that features a powder eyeshadow and a miniature-sized pencil eyeliner. This is a very, very dark, smoky set of shades!

Silver Leopard is described as a “glittering gunmetal grey.” It’s a blackened charcoal with cool undertones and fine shimmer and micro-glitter. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that applied well dry and blended without becoming patchy or sheering out a lot. It wore well for eight hours before starting to fade.

Giorgio Armani #21 (LE, $33.00) is lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Buxom Cool Caviar (P, $12.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Black Magic is described as an “intense petrol.” It’s a deep black with cool undertones and navy blue and lighter blue sparkle and shimmer. It had semi-opaque coverage in one stroke, and it was buildable to opaque coverage with two layers. It lasted for eight hours with minor sparkle traveling past the liner area. The consistency could have been slightly creamier. Sephora Galaxy Girl (25) (P, $10.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Night Trail (P, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). NARS Night Flight (P, $24.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Metalhead (P, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Midnight in Paris (P, $25.00) is lighter (85% similar).
