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 less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Gabrielle #1 (P, ) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury The Huntress (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Vaporize (LE, $19.00) is lighter (85% similar). Milani Bella Charcoal (11) (P, $4.49) is darker, warmer (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 more shimmery, lighter, warmer (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 more shimmery, lighter (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 cooler, lower quality (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 shimmery, more muted (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 warmer, better quality (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 shimmery, more muted (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 (DC, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Sephora Banana Split (10) (P, $10.00) is lighter (95% similar).

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 darker, cooler (95% similar).

Gucci Beauty Cosmic Deco #3 (P, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sapphire Sex is described as a “deep azure.” It’s a blackened navy blue with lighter blue and navy blue sparkle. It had sheer coverage in a single pass, and it was somewhat buildable to more opaque coverage, but it was never as intense as it appeared in the pencil. The texture was drier and not as creamy as other shades in the formula. The color wore well for eight hours. MAC Metalhead (P, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Iced Out (P, $14.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Stila Bluefin (P, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Noon (P, $15.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

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.

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, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Midnight in Paris (P, $25.00) is lighter (85% similar).

ColourPop Ho Ho Creme Gel Colour
ColourPop Ho Ho Creme Gel Colour

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). Sephora Eccentric Diva (P, $10.00) is lighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty (Grape)vine (P, $25.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Ransom (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

ColourPop Superstition Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “deep smoky khaki with pink and violet glitter.” It’s a dark, taupe-brown with warm undertones and pink and plum glitter. It had good pigmentation with a creamy, smooth texture (except for the noticeable glitter) that glided on and was easy to maneuver on the skin. The eyeliner was still going strong after ten hours of wear, but this one had a little more glitter fall out over time. Urban Decay Ether (P, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). Sephora Flirting Game (P, $10.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Sweet Tooth Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “warm golden bronze with glitter.” It’s a sparkling, golden brozne with warm undertones and a ton of gold glitter. It had good color payoff in a single stroke, but there is a ton of glitter, so it can easy to over-apply it, especially as it is quite creamy. It wears without fading or thinning for ten hours, but I noticed some glitter travel underneath the liner–less than the average glitter-bomb of an eyeliner but not foolproof! MAC Bountiful Brown (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora Cookie Crunch (DC, $10.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Deliciously Rich (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Show Me (P, $5.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Charlotte Tilbury The Huntress + Amber Moon Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise Duo

Charlotte Tilbury The Huntress + Amber Moon Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise
Charlotte Tilbury The Huntress + Amber Moon Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise

Charlotte Tilbury The Huntress + Amber Moon 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 one of four duos available (I will review the others).

The Huntress is described as a “smoky golden-bronze.” It’s a smoky, gray-ish taupe with hints of warmer brown in its undertone paired with fine gold shimmer and a metallic sheen. The formula is supposed to have rich color payoff with a “metallic effect.” It had good pigmentation, and the texture was fairly smooth, but there was a dryness there that made it harder to apply evenly to bare skin. If I used it damp, it applied just fine, but dry, it didn’t look quite right (and I didn’t see anything on Charlotte Tilbury’s website about using these damp). The color started to crease and breakdown after seven hours. Stila Substance (P, ) is warmer (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Spring 2015 (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Milani Bella Charcoal (11) (P, $4.49) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Full Orbit #3 (LE, $21.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Robbery (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Inglot #444 (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury On the Prowl (LE, ) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Full Orbit #4 (LE, $21.00) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Pistol (P, $19.00) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Derailed (LE, $19.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). MAC A Glimmer of Gold #4 (P, $21.00) is warmer (85% similar). Dior Capital of Light #1 (LE, ) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Posh Pedigree #2 (LE, $21.00) is lighter (80% similar). NARS L'Amour, Toujours L'Amour #8 (LE, $25.00) is cooler (80% similar). Dior Blazing Gold #5 (LE, ) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Amber Moon is described as a “rich amber.” It’s a dark, chocolate bronze with fine gold pearl. The formula is supposed to be “pigment-rich,” “glide on easily,” with a “long-lasting finish.” It had semi-opaque pigmentation in single pass, and it was buildable to mostly opaque coverage. The texture was moderately creamy and glided on without tugging on the lash line. It lasted for nine hours on me before noticeably thinning.
Sephora Cocoa (P, $10.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Broque (P, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Burberry Midnight Brown (P, $27.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). MAC Our Secret (P, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Groundbreaker (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Lord It Up (P, $15.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tarina Tarantino Locket Book (P, $15.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Overboard (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar).
