ColourPop Piggy Bank Creme Gel Liner
ColourPop Piggy Bank Creme Gel Liner

ColourPop Piggy Bank Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “vivid red violet.” It’s a medium-dark, pinky purple with warm undertones and a matte finish. So, this shade is “not recommended for the eye area.” Effectively, that kind of makes it a lip liner, I suppose. I wore it as such, and it was a little drying and clingy, but it lasted for six hours and was still going strong (just was not particularly comfortable). Colour Pop Piggy Bank (DC, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Stila Violet (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). Sephora Purple Stilettos (DC, $10.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Orchid (P, $9.00) is lighter, more muted, warmer (80% similar). L'Oreal Pure Purple (240) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery, cooler (80% similar).

ColourPop Piggy Bank Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “vivid red violet.” It’s a medium-dark, pinky purple with an ultra-matte finish. The texture was dry and harder to apply; it tended to skip and drag with really jagged edges even when I really loaded up a very fine eyeliner brush with product. This one is “not recommended for the eye area,” so I tested it as a lip liner, but it was pretty weird to do so as it was almost chalk-like on the lips. It seemed long-wearing from that test; these are the uncertain results you get when a product seems like one thing but is specifically not. Colour Pop Piggy Bank (DC, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Stila Violet (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). L'Oreal Pure Purple (240) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Sephora Purple Stilettos (DC, $10.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek Orchid (P, $9.00) is lighter, more muted, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Cry Baby Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned pastel lavender.” It’s a light-medium, lavender purple with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, but it had a drier texture that was harder to layer/build-up without it making the layer underneath it uneven. The color wore well for seven and a half hours. Colour Pop Cry Baby (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M92 Matte Pastel Purple (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Mist Me (P, $25.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Cry Baby Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned pastel lavender.” It’s a light-medium, lavender purple with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a smooth, creamy consistency that glided on well without dragging. The dry down is quite matte, and the white base of this comes through a lot on my skin tone at that point. It lasted for eight hours on me. Colour Pop Cry Baby (P, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M92 Matte Pastel Purple (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Mist Me (P, $25.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Boots Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “true hot pink.” It’s a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation in a single stroke, and it had a lightly creamy texture that helped it apply smoothly without tugging on the skin. That being said, this shade was also “not recommended for the eye area.” I tested it as a lip liner, and it lasted for over six hours, but it was drying. Colour Pop Boots (DC, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora On Wednesdays We Wear Pink (P, $14.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Process Magenta (P, $16.00) is darker (80% similar). Urban Decay Woodstock (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). Chanel Berry Lucky (LE, $29.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar).

ColourPop Boots Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “true hot pink.” It’s a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool undertones and a matte finish. Again, this shade is “not recommended for the eye area.” I tried to use it as a lip liner, but there’s a dryness about the gel eyeliners when they are applied to lips that makes it feel less like a traditional lip liner (whereas the liner is comparable to a lip pencil). This had good pigmentation, and the consistency was lightly creamy without being too firm or dry in the pot. It seemed to wear a solid six to eight hours. Colour Pop Boots (DC, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Sephora On Wednesdays We Wear Pink (P, $14.00) is cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Woodstock (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Chanel Berry Lucky (LE, $29.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Process Magenta (P, $16.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Love Boots. But,no idea how to wear. A pink liner! 🙂
Why even make the Piggy Bank pot if it’s not eye safe?! Finger painting?! Lol

Hmmm, I’ve been wearing Piggy Bank on my lower lashline (not on the waterline though) with no problems, and my eyes are usually quite sensitive. Maybe the warning is just a CYA thing?

So strange about Piggy Bank and Boots not being for the eye area. Wish they wouldn’t do that; we’d certainly be expecting everything released in the same way (I’m thinking specifically of the pots here, but it applies to the pencil, too) to be used the same way (powders are an okay exception, one that I’ll forgive). It’s kind of like releasing a dozen colors in lipstick tubes then having one be “not safe for the lip area.” If ColourPop were known for also producing theater-style makeup (like MAC) then it would make more sense, but then that should be a separate line. If they wanted to release those colors as lip liners and lip colors, then why not just do that? Why did they have to be gel products? Maybe I’m overthinking it.

It is sooo bizarre that CP has OBVIOUS eyeliners that they label as “not recommended for the eye area”! And equally as obvious, is that they do NOT work well for anything but EYES!!!
That said, I already have Sephora Purple Stilettos, which I love for a fun pop of very vivid purple. I will leave the wearing of hot pink or pale lavender to those who can pull those off.

I always find it interesting when what looks like an eyeproduct aren’t suitable for the eye area.
That said, I can’t really do pink eyeliner, and the purple doesn’t look so good. I do like the lavender ones, I must say. Very unusual.

I was so excited when I saw the initial swatches of Piggy Bank , then was crushed when I found out it’s not eye safe. It’s kind of deceptive, as it was launched with a whole bunch of eyeliners. And if it doesn’t work well as a lipliner, what else would you use it for?

Oh man, Boots brings me back to the days in the eighth and ninth grades when I would wear hot pink lipliner as eyeliner. It was my favorite makeup! Definitely going to have to get it. XP

It seems like there are other comparable pinks and purples out there that didn’t use unsafe pigments so I don’t understand why colourpop needed to use them to get these colors.
