Seeing Red

ColourPop Seeing Red Crème Gel Liner Duo ($14.00 for 0.02 oz.) includes two eyeliners in pearly red and sparkly black. The red eyeliner was nice–shows the brand can, in fact, do a nice eyeliner pencil–while the sparkly black was harder to work with as it was a little thicker and almost tacky in texture… but it had some pigment behind it, at least.

On Fire

On Fire is a deeper red with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single stroke, which was easily built up to full coverage with less than a second layer. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy without being heavy or tacky, which ensured it glided comfortably across my lower lash line. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.007 oz. - $1000.00 Per Ounce

The updated formula is supposed to have "18-hour" wear that is waterproof and be "super pigmented" for both the lash line as well as the waterline. The brand stated that the formula will set "after around 10 seconds." Many shades had semi-opaque to opaque, buildable coverage, but some shades had uneven, sheerer coverage that did not layer well, so they were more challenging to apply and to use.

The majority of shades were creamy enough to glide across the lash line without tugging or pulling, though a few shades were stiffer, more prone to breaking or dragging.

The formula seemed water-resistant based on testing with water, but the wear was more like 10 to 13 hours (depending on the shade) rather than 18 hours of solid wear. A lot of the shimmer shades lasted four to six hours on the waterline, while more matte shades tended to last five to seven hours on my waterline. These are long-wearing times for a pencil eyeliner, generally, but they are a fair bit short of the 18-hours claimed so a lot of shades rated lower than they might seem if you aren't a stickler for 18-hour wear!

From Downtown

From Downtown is a deep black with neutral-to-warm undertones and flecks of silver sparkle throughout. It had mostly opaque color coverage, though the texture was a little tacky and harder to use precisely as it tended to have thicker, slightly ragged edges. The formula was quick-drying, which made it more difficult to buff out imperfections. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me before thinning visibly.
