It’s been a great couple of months for beauty products, including the ColourPop Creme Gel Colours And Liners, which are a brand new addition to one of my favorite online beauty brands.
Priced at $5 for the Liners and $6 for the Colours, I ordered a few of each to test the waters and see if they’re worth stocking up on. I can’t ever resist a gel liner!
Here’s ColorPop Creme Gel Colours in Exit (matte white) and Get Paid (shimmery copper).
I’m wearing Get Paid right smack dab in the middle of my eyelid, and Exit on the lower lash line.
The Colours are not the easiest to work with and dry extremely fast giving you a limited amount of time to successfully apply them. However, I’ve been playing around with both Get Paid and and have found three saving graces:
1. The ColourPop Gel Colours apply best with a brush and can be blended out.
2. They work really well as a waterline liner, and last until they are removed.
3. These gels work really well as stand alone colors, but you can also add eyeshadow on top.
With that in mind, I have to say I find the ColourPop Creme Gel Liners a lot more agreeable and easier to work with.
The four liners I ordered include 2 matte and 2 shimmery colors: Get Paid (shimmery copper), Show Off (shimmery bronze), Timber (matte grey), and DTLA (matte navy).
I’m wearing Get Paid on my lower lashline in this photo:
The shimmery colors are softer than the mattes, but I’ve found both apply evenly and smoothly. They are a bit fragile and I’ve experienced tip breakage with all of the colors, but I’ve found that to be par for the course with twist up liners in general.
All of the colors have a nice amount of pigmentation and I’m impressed with the fact that they last a long time when I wear them out and about. While I don’t think I’ll pick up more of the Colours, I’ll definitely order some more Liners.
My Final Thoughts: ColourPop Creme Gel Colours And Liners aren’t the be all, end all when it comes to gel products, but they are a pretty good value for their low price point. The ColourPop Creme Gel Colours are a bit difficult to work with, and I’ve found they are best applied with an eyeshadow brush.
