Copper Eyeliners
Copper Eyeliners: Chanel Peche Cuivre, Giorgio Armani #05, UD Baked, UD Lucky, MUFE #10L

Copper Eyeliners: Your Guide

I feel like I should have more coppery eyeliners, but there were only five that I really felt fit here!

  1. Chanel Peche Cuivre is a warm peach with a subtle sheen. (LE)
  2. Giorgio Armani #05 is a lightened copper with a soft, metallic sheen. (LE)
  3. Urban Decay Baked is a warm copper brown. It is not quite as warm-toned as Make Up For Ever #10L. (DC)
  4. Urban Decay Lucky is a rich copper with strong red and orange undertones.
  5. Make Up For Ever #10L is a warm copper brown. It is a touch warmer than Urban Decay Baked.

TEMPTALIA PICKS:  #4 (pigmentation, longevity), #5 (pigmentation, longevity)

Behind-the-Series:  It was my intention to provide heavy, opaque swatches to provide an accurate color comparison.  Some eyeliners required one pass, some required five, and a few even more.  When possible, the shade name (above) is linked to the original review so you can read more about the quality, wear, etc. of a particular eyeliner.  If we’ve never done a review, there will be no link.  Shades that were limited edition will be marked with “(LE)” and shades that were discontinued will be marked with “(DC)” after the color description.  You can also find all comparisons on The Dupe List.

Giorgio Armani #5 Copper Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil

Giorgio Armani #5 Copper Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil ($27.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as it’s named: “copper.” It’s a muted copper with a gold sheen. The only shade I could think of that was similar was tokidoki Unicorno, which is more like an orange-gold. theBalm Mischievous Marissa is a bit like it, but it is an eyeshadow.  It delivers mostly opaque color coverage in a single pass, which is always a noteworthy feat for an eyeliner.  There’s a metallic sheen, but it’s not too reflective.

Giorgio Armani describes the formula as waterproof/water-resistant (they use both terms, even though they mean different things), soft, creamy, and intense.  The first thing you notice when you use it is how utterly soft and malleable the pencil tip is.  It’s so, so soft that it glides across the lash line with ease–no tugging or skipping.  Despite the creaminess of the formula, it doesn’t smudge throughout the day.  This shade wore better than #4 for me, actually, because it looked 95% as good after eight hours as it did when I first applied it.  I splashed my eye with water and lightly pressed, and I didn’t find that the eyeliner was disturbed, so it should make it through intact if your eyes water a bit.

The Glossover


Copper (05)

If you find that beige and champagne eyeliners don't look quite right, you may try this soft copper to wake up tired eyes. Or maybe as a new way to do so even if you do like a good champagne eyeliner! It's not dark like most copper eyeliners, which is what makes it more unique.
