Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is introducing six new shades, plus a limited edition collector’s box of all 16 shades (plus a pencil sharpener) on March 21st. I will be reviewing all 16 shades across three posts over the next week! 🙂 This is part two (view part one here)…

Zoeva After the Disco Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, medium yellow gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen with slight gold sparkle. It had semi-opaque coverage in one pass, and it was mostly opaque after two layers. The texture was lightly creamy, glided on well, and wore for eight hours with a bit of fall out. NARS Sunset Boulevard (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Goldrush (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty All That Glitters (P, $24.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Kerala Sun (LE, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Stargazer (LE, $22.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (85% similar). MAC Atomic Ore (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). NARS Campo de' Fiori (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). MAC Powerline (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Zoeva Cool Factor Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark blue with subtle, cool undertones and a frosted sheen. It had sheer color coverage in a single layer, and it was somewhat buildable to semi-opaque coverage. The texture had a lot of slip to it, so it tended to go on more unevenly than other shades. It wore for eight hours but had sparkle migrate over time. MAC Industrial (P, $15.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Skyscape (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Whirlpool (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Zoeva Good Karma Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark, blue-teal with gold and green sparkle. It had semi-opaque coverage but had a more stained quality to it, where there was translucency that was more even yet subdued compared to the way it looked in the pencil. The texture was sparkly, and it felt a little rough against the lower lash line. This is one of the more sparkly shades, and there is some fall out/movement of that sparkle during wear. The underlying color stayed in place for closer to eight hours. MAC Undercurrent (P, $15.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Junkie (P, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay The Night King (LE, $22.00) is cooler (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Gemstoned (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Siahi (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora Fairytale (DC, $10.00) is warmer (85% similar). Sephora Waterfall (P, $10.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Take the Plunge (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Estee Lauder Emerald Volt (P, $28.00) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Zoeva Mr. Marvelous Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a blackened purple base with a ton of cool-toned violet sparkle. It is a more glittery shade, though not noticeably gritty when applying, but the base is streakier in one stroke. I was able to layer for greater opacity, at least. The eyeliner wore nicely for eight hours with some glitter fall out/travel. Urban Decay Retrograde (P, $22.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Smashbox Nymph (P, $18.00) is warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Zoeva New Jewels Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark purple with cool undertones and a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. It had medium coverage in one stroke, which was buildable to opaque coverage in two to three layers. The texture was lightly creamy but less emollient than about half the range. It wore well for eight hours on me before thinning. Colour Pop Ho Ho (LE, $6.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Designer Purple (P, $15.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty (Grape)vine (P, $25.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Ransom (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Smashbox Nymph (P, $18.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Milani Perfect Purple (P, $6.99) is warmer (85% similar). Kat Von D Homie (PiP, $10.00) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Viper (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Voodoo (PiP, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Sephora Eccentric Diva (DC, $10.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty (Plum)age (60) (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is supposed to be a smooth, pigmented, long-wearing, and waterproof eyeliner. Overall, when they’re good, they’re really good, and when they’re less good, they’re still long-wearing, just less pigmented (but often buildable). The texture is very creamy, so they glide effortlessly and never tug on the lash line. The line has some more interesting shades than the standard eyeliner range, which is always nice to see. The wear varies between seven and nine hours depending on the shade.

Cool Factor and Mr. Marvelous are the colors that appeal to me most, but the performance doesn’t. I wonder what it is about blue/violet colors that makes them so difficult to do well.

These are pretty, even if scores are all over the board. I like Good Karma, but I think MAC Undercurrent’s swatch looks better, the MAC one is already on my buy list for next order. The purples are pretty too, but for sparkly purples, I love my BH Cosmetics Waterproof Party Girl Gel Eyeliner in purple, dirt cheap, pigmented, smooth, and lasts +12 hrs with primer on my oily lids.

I’m heavily considering the set. I really want all the pencils to do well because I really do not “need” anymore liners . So, all the liners in this set didn’t do great. But, they are gorgeous. Can they be worked with? I can handle loosing one if I must. What about primer? Does primer help liner out?

Some of these shades are very pretty, but I usually try to avoid sparkly liners because of my sensitive eyes.

Too bad Cool Factor doesn’t retain its, uh, cool looking color. That could’ve been a beauty!
Thankful that I have better dupes for Good Karma and New Jewels. Siahi and Fairytale being perfect for me, and CP Ho Ho is divinity for a purple liner!
Mr. Marvelous looks intriguing, however….

Ugh cool factor sucks, and indeed I saw that ahead of time in the swatches but bought it anyway because it’s so freaking pretty. I also picked up new jewels, prolly have a similar dupe already (it looks a little like the MJ purple), but I can never go wrong with anything purple, especially sparkly, around my lash line.

Lots of great colors so far, but the one color I think that is a standout is also a poor performer “Cool Factor”. It is such an interesting, complex, shade.

The blue and teal colours are gorgeous, but I think having so much sparkle in them could/would irritate many eyes. In fact I think the brand is a bit silly, irresponsible? putting so much sparkle in when they know that lots of women cannot wear it…..

I think they are all very pretty, and I want almost all of them. Most of all I want Good Karma and Mr Marvelous. New Jewels is also on the really want list, hard to stay away from the purply ones.
I would probably get crazy with the shimmer going everywhere, on me that can happen, so I’ll probably not buy them.
