ColourPop Show Me Creme Gel Liner
ColourPop Show Me Creme Gel Liner

ColourPop Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is supposed to have a “creamy” texture and “long-lasting wear” with “smooth glide for easy and comfortable waterline application.” The brand cautions not to twist-up too much product, as they are soft enough they’ll break, and I’ll reiterate that this is imperative, as the tip will easily break off if there’s much more than two or three millimeters exposed at a given time. They are creamy and glide on without skipping, and most shades are pretty opaque in a single stroke. Some shades build better than others; the metallic finish tended to be less desirable for building up. The wear ranged from seven to nine hours on the lower lash line. The lighter shades were better on the waterline, but some of the darker and blacker shades showed signs of transfer after six hours on the waterline.

ColourPop Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is supposed to offer the “precision of a liquid with the ease of a gel based formula.” The brand recommends to apply it with a fine synthetic brush and to avoid picking up too much product. They’re supposed to be transfer-resistant and long-wearing. The majority of the range is of a matte finish, but there are a few in the metallic finish. The metallic finish is more emollient and has more slip than the matte finish, which resulted in slightly less intense coverage that was more buildable. All of the shades dry down very quickly, and they don’t work as cream eyeshadows if you want to be able to blend out the edges at all, as they just dry down and flake away rather than smudge. The metallic finish tends to flake away if you try to blend it out, while the matte finish takes longer to do so. Some of the matte shades are drier than others, and some are very pigmented and others need two to three layers of product to achieve true-to-pan intensity. The wear ranges from eight to twelve hours with some shades thinning more noticeably than others.

ColourPop Show Me Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “vivid true copper.” It’s a medium-dark, coppery brown with a metallic sheen. It had opaque coverage in a single pass, but it is applied best in short, quick strokes rather than in layers (or back-and-forth motions) to maximize the opacity. The consistency is creamy, glides right on, and the eyeliner wore well for eight hours. Colour Pop Show Me (P, $6.00)(100% similar). Urban Decay Scorch (P, $22.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Sun Tan (08) (DC, $10.00) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Sweet Tooth (LE, $6.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Stila Gilded (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar).

ColourPop Show Me Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “vivid true copper.” It’s a medium-dark, coppery brown with a metallic sheen. It has a more emollient texture compared to the matte shades in the formula, but it isn’t really slippery or too wet to work with. It worked better applied more heavily and then pulled out, but it can be layered as long as you use a finer brush–nothing fluffy or else it will flake off the product already applied. The color wore well for ten hours before starting to fade. Colour Pop Show Me (P, $5.00)(100% similar). Sephora Sun Tan (08) (DC, $10.00) is lighter (95% similar).

ColourPop Get Paid Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “metallic rose gold.” It’s a medium copper with warm, red undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color coverage in a single pass, and it layered well without skipping on the lash line. The color wore well for eight hours on me. The pencil version seems slightly lighter/more metallic than the pot version. Colour Pop Get Paid (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Nut (LE, $6.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Trick (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

ColourPop Get Paid Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “metallic rose gold.” It’s a medium copper with warm, red undertones and a metallic sheen. The pot version has more depth and a richer tone to it than the pencil. It seemed quite emollient, so it was harder to apply in a really opaque line (using a fine synthetic brush), but it was very pigmented when applied with a flat, firm synthetic brush. The color wore well for nine and a half hours, but it seemed prone to flaking off in small chunks after that, which was annoying to catch in my eye. Colour Pop Get Paid (P, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Trick (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Nut (LE, $6.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Starfire (PiP, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar).

ColourPop Dirty Talk Creme Gel Liner ($5.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “soft metallic gold.” It’s a light-medium, antique gold with subtle, brown undertones and a metallic sheen. The pencil version seems brighter and less brown compared to the pot. It had great color payoff in a single pass, and it was nicely creamy without sliding around. The color wore well for eight hours on me. Colour Pop Dirty Talk (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Lannister Gold (LE, $22.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). bareMinerals 5AM (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar).

ColourPop Dirty Talk Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “soft metallic gold.” It’s a light-medium, muted gold with warm, brown undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation, though not fully opaque without two layers, paired with a creamy, lightly emollient consistency that glided on fairly evenly. The color wore well for ten hours on me, and it didn’t come away in flakes (just faded/thinned). Colour Pop Dirty Talk (DC, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Oh I’m liking the performance reviews on these. *_*

Get Paid (Liad haha) look really nice in the pencil form. I’m curious if the gel pot work work better as an eyeshadows all over.

Dirty Talk reminds me of Sigma’s ENLIGHTEN eye pencil when I think about it. But Enlightened I think is being DC’d.

I don’t like the pots as eyeshadow, unless you’re using a base and are layering the edges with a darker shade, as they dry down very quickly. I couldn’t blend out the edges well at all, because it would dry down a second or two after applying!

oh man, I bought a set of these mainly as eyeshadow bases…perhaps brushing the edges with something emollient may soften them enough to smudge out? I am determined to get these to work!

Hmm, I’m kind of confused as to why they came out with the same colors, but one as a pencil and one in pot. I guess the pot is a better bargain as you get a lot more product, but less convenient. At $6, the pot is really cheap compared to the ones from Bobbi Brown and IT ( $ 25 range). I’ve already found some really great $4-$5 eye liners that last forever on my oily lids ( BH Cosmetics Party Girl, Prestige Total Intensity) and stocked up on others at 50% off ( BM Round the Clock, The Balm Mr. Write Now) but I will pick up a few to try out.

People prefer different types of eyeliner πŸ™‚ Some people like gel/cream eyeliners they can apply with an applicator of their choice, while others like pencils! From my experience, many like using cream/gel pots for upper lash liner and then pencils for lower lash liner.

Christine, you have humorously misspelled Get Paid. πŸ˜€

So excited to read all of your reviews for this! The one that I wanted to order is already sold out!

Which formula do you like the most? I bought several gel pots and two matte liners. I bought all the metallics in pot and this review seems like the pencils might be better?

I just howled! (Up top.). You were too influenced by the name of Dirty Talk. … And the blush, Get Leid! Too funny. So far these are a good antidote to MUG’s fiasco.

No, seriously, it was a Freudian slip, and a natural one. You are such a perfectionist and detail-oriented that it was doubly funny. Nothing gets by you! You are the Goddess of bloggers and we thank you every day. Seriously.

Too bad these don’t work as cream eyeshadows cause I would be all over Show Me. I’ll still probably purchase a shade or two of the metallic shades for that pop of color.

Oh yeah! I hope the rest do well. I’m glad the did a pot and pencil to match. I don’t think anyone else has done that yet!?! I like gel for winged lining and pencils for smudging. I usually do a mismatched look. Now, I can match it up! πŸ™‚

Thanks for the review, Christine!

Looking great! I’m so looking forward to my package. I think most products with B ranking from you has always work pretty good on me. I’ll trust Colourpop this time too. Also, it’s hard to beat that $5-6 price tag. I don’t mind the performance falls in B. Plus, there are As out there in the collection too!!!

I was very excited about these and I’m so glad to see they’re performing well so far! And it’s nice to see a company tell you up front if there’s a potential issue – that they say to be careful not to over-twist. That kind of attention to customer satisfaction sends a good message to me. Can’t wait to see the rest!

Fortunately, i snagged the 100 pointer from S. ’cause MJ liners disappear instantly on me and the colors are so drop dead gorg! Paula normalized my skin, so now i can use cream products (YAY CP!) … but she can’t do anything about my waterline. Oily, i suppose. The shadows in the holiday palette perform fine, thank God, for that dough, and i was slightly worried. Suspect i’m all over these liners. Liners are my weakness..or maybe MAJOR weakness. There are so many!

Seriously liking Dirty Talk and Get Paid in the pencil form, as these are some really nice lower lashline shades for me!
Not going for Show Me because I have Sephora Suntan (LOVE!) , therefore no need.

Loving the look of these! I’ve been putting it for the longest time now (Switzerland is a b*tch when it comes to buying online from abroad) but dang, I really need to get my hands on some ColourPop…

Woohoo! I ordered Get Paid in both forms and Dirty Talk in pencil form. Love me a rose gold/copper and cool gold. πŸ™‚

Ooh, so sparkly/metallic! It’s great to see that these performed so well, as in the previous swatch post some of those pencils looked a little dry.

Such beautiful golds! Looks like I need Get Paid. I’m really rigging the rose gold feel. I bet it’ll look so beautiful in the inner corners

I usually try lining my lash line and water line with pencils. I have the water line down but my lash line is always a mess. I guess maybe I need more practice because my hand is not steady. I got the Benefit It’s Real Liner hoping that would be easier and more good proof but that always looks crazy no matter how little I use.

Ohhhh – I am loving ALL of these – especially Dirty Talk (what a poor name for an eye shadow!). It’s a really gorgeous gold. I think the pencils would be easier to use. These look divine.

I knew when I saw Get Paid and Show Me that one or both of them would be a close dupe to MAC’s Copperthorn. I got both CP colors in pencil form because I’m more at ease with pencils than gel pots.

I got Get Paid in pencil form, can’t wait to receive it (& the other colors I got)! I’m pleasantly surprised they performed so well, too. πŸ˜€ Yay!

Cheap, pigmented and well-performing…and they don’t test on animals! *side-eye at mac*

Thanks for reviewing the CP pencil and creme/ gel liner. It’s good to knoe that the creme/ gel liner dried down to quick to be blendef out as shadow. I’ve seen some make up artists use eyeliner pencil blended out as shadow. Do you think that’s possible with CP pencils?

Oh, hard to decide, between the pots nad the pencils, as I like both formulations. Also quite hard to decide with so many colours. I like all of the ones reviewed in this post.

I have three MJ pencil liners, and two of the more recent ones (Sunset, Orange Crush) went dry on me after a few months. They still work, but they’re a pain. I may have to acquire Get Paid as a possible-dupe-for-both replacement.

Hey! Sorry to be so late to your post! I’m buying some Colourpop by the buckets, but kinda wanted more info on the liners, both pencils and pots. I definitely get that the pencils are crap and break, so you may get a few uses ?. I do love creme liners, they’re easier for a winged liner, etc. I’m loving the color Big O but wondering if the cremes can be used on the waterline? Also in some of the online reviews there are complaints that the liner just flaked right off! Don’t want to have to carry a pot for touch ups! Should I get both and only use the liner as a back up, or scrap the whole thing? I looooove this color though!! Any help you can provide will be so much appreciated!
PS, you should do a post about the new NYX liquid lingerie line, they’re unbelievable!! They’re liquid to matte, have a range of 12 nudes, one will no doubt work for any skintone whatsoever. I’m obsessed. Anyway, happy day and thanks for helping if you do even get this message ☺️

I haven’t had issues with most of the eyeliners myself with respect to wear. I’d say to try one or two and see how they wear on you, Jana πŸ™‚
