COVERGIRL LiquilineBlast Eyeliner
LiquilineBlast: Brown Blaze, Blue Boom, Silver Spark, Green Glow, Violet Voltage

Urban Decay Dupe?  Not Quite, But Close

COVERGIRL LiquilineBlast ($7.99 for 0.033 oz.) are touted to give you the “intensity and styaing power of a liquid with the ease and blendability of a waterproof pencil.” It also comes with a smudger on one end. There are six shades in all, and the one I don’t have to review here is Blackfire–will try to get my hands on it for a review soon.

  • Brown Blaze is a dark neutral-toned brown.
  • Blue Boom is a bright medium blue with a satin-y shimmer finish.
  • Silver Spark is a dark charcoal gray with silver flecks of shimmer-glitter.
  • Green Glow is a bright pop of chatreuse green with yellow shimmer-sheen.
  • Violet Voltage is a red-toned purple–very eggplant-y.

I really do like these, even if they don’t do quite as good of a job as some of my favorite high-end eyeliners (Make Up For Ever, Urban Decay). My favorite shades were Blue Boom and Green Glow, which I’m sure doesn’t come as a surprise!

The LiquilineBlasts have a very smooth, soft feel when used, and they do glide very well across the lid/lash line. However, they aren’t incredibly pigmented–you can layer it on to get more of that opaque, intense liner look, though, but it’s not one-stroke color here. It’s also better if you apply in the same direction, even in layers, because it keeps it from smearing/sheering out.

These excel in the wear department, though — I had no trouble with these lasting all day without smudging, budging, or migrating. They stay tacky enough to be smudged for about a minute or two, but they seem to set quite well after that. It’s a shame that the pigmentation is a little low, because these could have been a great affordable alternative to Urban Decay’s 24/7 Liners–they’re a good one, but they’re just not a perfect substitute.  I would also say these felt softer than Urban Decay’s liners.

But I really love Green Glow — I only have a liquid liner in this color, and I am very much an eyeliner fiend, so whenever I come across a shade I don’t quite have, it’s hard not to fall in love.

  • Product: 26/30

RECOMMENDATION: I really like these, and with their lower price tag, it might be worth looking into as long as you don’t mind a little layering to get it to be true-to-color. They wear well and long, which is the most important aspect of any eyeliner, in my eyes … or rather, on my eyes… Ha!

No covergirl in Ireland but i like Gosh as a cheaper alternative to Urban Decay here. Love the blue, it seems so shimmery!

I bought the green and found out it was a little light to put on my upper lid line but it works great for the lower lashline!

I am a liner fiend too, and always looking for shades that I do not posses. I noticed the green one on your “look” yesterday and I was most curious, so thanks for the review! I will probably pick up the green one, it definately looks unique! I am such a sucker for greens/golds/bronzes/pewters, etc! Attach a drain to the bank account!

sharan Avatar

i have that green colour from gosh, which is awesomeee. how did u do ur eye look there? (eye makeup newbie here :$)and could you show us how the purple looked?

jessica Avatar

Ohhh…I love the green and the blue one!! Do you know if they are available at drugstores like CVS or Walgreens also? There in no Ulta in CT!! Which I honestly can’t believe..I hope we get one soon!

Michelle Avatar

wow! love these! but will probably pass, my eyes are extra oily so everything i tried, even UD 24/7 Liners, smudges on me. However, MUFE Aqua eyes seem to be the only thing my eyes will take. 🙂 Thanks for the review Christine!

I have Blue Boom, Green Glow & Silver Spark. I originally bought Green Glow, loved it so much that I grabbed the other two. What I do to wear it and amp up the color is apply it, then use Fyrinnae’s OMGWTF or We’re All Mad here, to intensify the yellow-green-chartreuse. I definitely think they’re soft and easy to apply, as well as pretty. I do agree they could use some more pigmentation, but otherwise they’re really nice.

Seems like the blue is a dupe for UD Deviant, which I already have. I picked up the green yesterday and I might consider the silver and purple because the colors are very pretty! I’m going to do a waterline test tonight with the green. All other drugstore brand “liquid pencil” liners (L’oreal HIP chrome ones, Milani Liquif’eye, and Prestige has one that I’ve tried) have burned the bejesus out of my eyes when used on the waterline. If these don’t, I might have to get all the colors! 🙂

daphne Avatar

Well, I’ve had it on my waterline since I got home around 6:00 and it’s nearly 11:00 now and I’ve nearly forgotten it’s there! So I’m thinking it’s good to go, whew! I’m not entirely sure this gives me faith with the other colors but I’m definitely willing to chance it now.

Hi Christine, I use Styli-Style eyeliners and they are very soft and long-lasting. I love those eyeliners! They have a nice variety of colors including many blue/teal/aqua shades, jewel tones shades etc. Their price is around 8/9 Canadian dollar. Do you have any plan to review those eyeliners? I think they might be a cheaper alternative to other high-end eyeliners.

Lyn Avatar

Pigmented or not, I will definitely be picking up Green Glow – it looks exactly like what I’d hoped MUFE 17L would be! Thank you for reviewing these! 🙂

Green Glow remind me of my GOSH Velvet Touch Eye Liner in Lemon Soda. The shade is tiny bit brighter (more yellow). I think I’ll be checking them out since they seem more piratical then the Smoky Shadow Blast Shadow Stick (NYX had the better product in this category by far with the Jumbo Shadow pencils.)

I concur that GOSH Velvet Touch Eye Liner is a very good dupe or pairing to the Urban Decay’s 24/7 Liners. They are pigmented! They sell for $12-$13 at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada. I usually buy them when they go on sell.

Christine, thanks bunches for reviewing these! I’ve walked past the display a dozen times wondering if they were any good. I’m obsessed with colorful eyeliners too, so I was dying to see if these were any good! I may pick up the bright blue and silver pencils if CG goes on sale, but I imagine I’ll still like my Milani and UD liners more.

puffnstuff Avatar

ive used the black and brown liquiline e/l and ive found that even though its not as initially black/dark as the UD liners, they wear so much better on me! whereas the UD liners smudged all over my face in addition to fading, this one stays put, even through the heat and humidity. these and the prestige ti e/l are the best ive tried so far!

Lia Avatar

Hi! They look fabulous.
Are they safe to be used on the waterline? I’ve been looking for a similar eggplant color for quite a long while.

Danielle Avatar

I think I’m gonna go ahead and get Blue Boom, Silver Spark, and Green Glow…lol. Soooo pretty! Wonder how long it will take drugstores near me to start carrying it.

Jodda Avatar

Thanks for this review. From the swatches and your look, I am picking up the Green Glow. RatedR, Sharp, and Lucky Green, meet your new friend! I’m going to try this under those shadows, which I love. 🙂

Sarah Avatar

I wish they had a gold! I really want a good drugstore gold metallic liner. After your Milani reiview, I’m tempted to get one of those liners but don’t want to pay for shipping. Oh poooor me lol

I Have Blue Boom, Green Glow And Violet Voltage. Blue Boom I Love To Use For A Winged Eyeliner. It Looks Great That Way And Since Its Waterproof I Wear It With My Swimsuit-They Totally Compliment Each Other. Violet Voltage I Love As A Soft Upper Lid Eyeliner Color. Im Still Not Sure How I Feel About Green Glow…
