So Charming

ColourPop So Charming Crème Gel Liner Duo ($14.00 for oz.) includes two bolder, matte liners in pinky-red and deep burgundy. Lover Boy was the star of the duo, while Charmer was so poorly performing that it ruined the duo.

Lover Boy

Lover Boy is a bright, pinky-red with cool undertones and a matte finish. The color coverage was mostly opaque in a single layer, while the texture was smooth, moderately creamy but denser and a little thick.

It was that thickness that made it harder to apply evenly and layer up, so it was better applied in a thin, fluid motion rather than in shorter, overlapping layers for me. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours and stained slightly. (This shade is not intended for use around the immediate eye area.)

Ingredients

*not intended for use in the immediate eye area. dimethicone, trimethylsiloxysilicate, ceresin, polyethylene, stearoxy dimethicone, silica, carmine (ci 75470), mica (ci 77019), red 28 lake (ci 45410), titanium dioxide (ci 77891), yellow 5 lake (ci 19140), yellow 10 (ci 47005).

Charmer

Charmer is a deep burgundy with subtle, col undertones and a matte finish. The texture was firmer and drier, which showed in the swatch where the product skipped around and did not layer well at all. It had sheerer coverage that tugged during application. The color lasted for seven hours before fading visibly. This seemed a lot drier/rougher compared to the last version I reviewed.

Ingredients

dimethicone, trimethylsiloxysilicate, ceresin, polyethylene, stearoxy dimethicone, silica, blue 1 lake (ci 42090), carmine (ci 75470), iron oxides (ci 77491), mica (ci 77019), titanium dioxide (ci 77891).

At the risk of asking a really dumb question, these are EYE liners, not lip liners? I don’t own a single thing from Colour Pop but it seems to me there was a time where they could hardly put a foot wrong and their shadows were just first rate AND affordable but in recent years, it seems they’re coming out with new stuff almost hourly and not much of it is very good….

Well, this formula is for their eyeliners, but they do use color additives that aren’t approved for eye usage (via FDA, but they’d be fine for eyes under EU regulations) so some shades are not intended for the eye area. Charmer is an eyeliner, Lover Boy is technically not.

Thanks, Christine. The colours themselves are what had me wondering (but then I’m someone who eschews red shadows, pink shadows – anything red-toned around my eyes, as I’m sure people are tired of hearing about!)

I had a terrible experience with Charmer, so I’m glad to know I’m not alone. I love the CP creme gel liners, but that one was unblendable and didn’t last on the waterline or lashline. It didn’t go on opaquely either — no thanks!
