ColourPop Boogie Nights Creme Gel Colours

ColourPop Ho Ho Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “vibrant rich violet with purple glitter.” It’s a bright, violet purple with cool undertones and fine purple sparkle. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a slightly dry texture, but it wasn’t so that that it dragged when applied. It also seemed to get better after the outer layer had been removed/mixed in. Applied, the color lasted for ten hours with minimal sparkle travel/fall out. Zoeva New Jewels (P, $7.50) is more shimmery (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty (Plum)age (60) (P, $25.00) is warmer (90% similar). Kat Von D Homie (P, $10.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Ransom (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Zoeva Regency (P, $7.50) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Sephora Eccentric Diva (P, $10.00) is lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I90 Iridescent Pop Purple (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). Buxom Door's Unlocked (P, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Milani Perfect Purple (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Tarina Tarantino Amethyst Android (P, $15.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). MAC Designer Purple (P, $15.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). MAC Evil Twin (LE, $16.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar).

ColourPop Fauncy Creme Gel Colour Collection

ColourPop Fauncy Creme Gel Colour Set ($33.00 for 0.36 oz.) includes three eyeliner pencils and three gel eyeliners (in pots); all six shades are limited edition. This was a bit of a mixed bag; none of these were super pigmented in one stroke, with some that layered better than others. They are more unique in color, though, particularly Frill and Soiree.

MAC Into the Well Eyeshadows

MAC Into the Well Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a new, limited edition formula that can be used dry or wet, and there is a well in the middle for mixing the powder with water. I think they are better as eyeliners–used with a wet brush–than as eyeshadow, as they have a tendency to turn patchy and apply unevenly on the skin without a really solid base and some patience. If you’re applying it dry as an eyeliner, I recommend a small, flat edge brush and pressing into the lash line rather than sweeping. If you’re applying it wet as an eyeliner, use enough water that the surface of the powder darkens but not enough that the water is visibly sitting on the surface of the powder. I felt like there was a decent learning curve between too much and too little water; too much resulted in uneven and sheer coverage while too little resulted in dry, dragged-out lines. I think they’re best patted over pencil eyeliner to really set and lock in place–these will add two to three hours on top of my pencil eyeliner’s wear. There are six shades, and I have three of them, which are reviewed below:

Urban Decay Delirious 24/7 Eyeliner Set

Urban Decay Delirious 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set ($29.00 for 0.15 oz.) includes five travel-sized eyeliners. Three of the five shades could be significantly more pigmented and apply better (they just don’t go on very evenly!), and whoever depicted the color of Zodiac on the box made it appear like a teal hue, when it is nothing like that at all.

Urban Decay 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencils

Urban Decay Legend 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a new, permanent formula designed to yield “waterproof color” for use on the waterline that is “even creamier” than their original eye pencils. I had so many issues wearing these, and I have tried them over the last few months. These smudge within an hour and have horrific migration (as if I had sobbed for an hour and all my mascara ran!) within four hours. They just don’t stay at all on the waterline or the lash line. The texture is drier, stiffer, and definitely not creamier than their original range (which is waxier to me–they glide better). The pigmentation varied from shade to shade. It was difficult to apply even color on the lower lash line or waterline, and the formula would not last at all.
