Nut

Colour Pop Nut Crème Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium copper with warm, reddish undertones and a bright, golden sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied fairly evenly. I found it applied most evenly when I used a synthetic, angled liner brush or a thin, brush-style liner brush but seemed to have a bit more slip in its consistency that it tended to sheer out more readily if I used a larger brush (like a flat, synthetic brush). The latter is more of a note than anything to do with the rating, as it is marketed as an eyeliner to be used with an angled brush, though I’ve found most ColourPop’s cream eyeliners work well as eyeshadow bases, too. The color stayed on well for nine hours before fading slightly.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.11 oz. - $54.55 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "long-wearing" with "high-intensity pigment" and a "smooth application." When the shades are nearly opaque, they are often long-wearing and fluid, making them easy to apply and to use as eyeliner or as an eyeshadow base. Sometimes, they can be a little too emollient, where they sheer out more readily when applied in a fluid stroke and are not as easily built up. Most shades wore between eight and 10 hours on me.

A Little Moonlight

MAC A Little Moonlight Dazzleliner ($22.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a semi-sheer black base with larger silver sparkle and larger glitter. It had some larger particles to it, though they seemed to adhere well when applied on my lower lash line with the only fallout occurring if I attempted to blend/diffuse it after it had dried down. This worked best layered over other, deeper, more blackened eyeliners (like a true black) as the base color was still prominent enough that it made other shades look uneven if applied over light and mid-tone bases. It lasted well for nine hours on me (I tested it alone for wear).

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.06 oz. - $366.67 Per Ounce

The formula is a "top coat" that can be layered over your liquid liner or can be built up for "full drama" if desired. I think "top coat" is quite apt for these, as they absolutely work well for layering on top of other products, like liquid eyeliner, or to add a dose of sparkle with less base coverage. They have a shinier finish at dry down with moderate to heavy amounts of sparkle and glitter (depends on the shade). The consistency was quite thin and watery, and I found it difficult to pull the thin brush-style applicator in a fluid stroke and get even coverage out of it. The formula dried down quickly, so it wasn't prone to drying into my fine lines, and once it dried down, it locked into place well for nine to ten hour wear.

Love Drug

Urban Decay Love Drug 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil (Eyeliner) ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium, reddish plum with subtle, warm undertones and a pearl finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly to my lash line without dragging or tugging on it. The texture was waxy, so it felt velvety and smooth but not wet or truly cream-like. The eyeliner stayed on well for nine hours before thinning slightly.

Hex Remedy

Urban Decay Hex Remedy Holiday 2018 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Set ($29.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new, limited edition five-piece eyeliner set. I’m a fan of Urban Decay’s pencil formula (I keep all shades out on my vanity!), and Perversion has a go-to whenever I’m looking for a black eyeliner for years. I’d love to see a shade like Space Dust added to their permanent offerings as it’s not the most common shade. I wish Voodoo performed better, but the other four were fairly good.

The set includes $78.75 worth of eyeliner as the full-sized eye pencils retail for $21.00 and include 0.04 oz., which makes this set a great value if more than two shades appeal to you!

Stone

Sephora Stone Contour Eye Pencil ($10.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep gray with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had a smooth, waxy consistency that gave it a touch of creaminess without any wet-feel. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which was easy to apply as it never tugged or dragged on my lower lash line. This shade lasted well for 10 hours on me before it started to thin slightly.

Formula Overview

$10.00/0.04 oz. - $250.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "pigmented" with "one stroke" application that is "waterproof" and lasts for "12 hours." I've been a long-time fan of the formula for its variety of shades that are typically pigmented, long-wearing, comfortable to apply, and easy to work with--they aren't too tough to remove nor do they take too long (or dry down too quickly) to dry. The matte shades tend to be the best, while the shimmery shades are good but can be semi-opaque at times. The glittery/sparkly shades have the most inconsistency, usually with respect to pigmentation. They tend to wear around 10 hours on me.

Midnight Blue

Sephora Midnight Blue Contour Eye Pencil ($10.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a blackened navy blue with a sparkling finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was fairly smooth, though I could tell it was a more glittery eyeliner, and didn’t drag or tug on my lower lash line when I tried to apply it in a fluid stroke. It stayed on well for 10 hours before fading/thinning noticeably.
