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.

ColourPop No Shame, Best O, Call Me Creme Gel Liner & Colours

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. Stila Black Amethyst (P, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop No Shame (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Ash Violet (DC, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Nightcast (P, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Twilight Night (P, $23.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). Make Up For Ever M80 Matte Plum (P, $21.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar).
