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. ColourPop Show Me (P, $7.00)(100% similar). Urban Decay Scorch (DC, $22.00) is darker (95% 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. ColourPop 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. ColourPop Get Paid (P, $7.00) is darker (95% 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. ColourPop Get Paid (P, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). ColourPop Nut (LE, $7.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Starfire (PiP, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Trick (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker (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. ColourPop Dirty Talk (P, $7.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Kerala Sun (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar).

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!

Katherine T. Avatar

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.

Olivia Avatar

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?

KJH Avatar

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.

kjh Avatar

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.

Beti Avatar

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.

Nicole Avatar

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!!!

Kat Avatar

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!

Nancy T Avatar

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.

Ciara Avatar

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.

Lori P Avatar

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.

Char Avatar

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?

Alecto Avatar

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.

Jana Dubois Avatar

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 ☺️
