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.

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.

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.

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). Chanel Marine (30) (P, $34.00) is lighter (90% similar).

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.

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.

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?

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….

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.

Genevieve Avatar

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…..
