Product Review -- ColourPop Creme Gel Liners

When I gave ColourPop's Creme Gel Colours a try, I couldn't resist picking up some of their Creme Gel Liners too.

They're basically the Creme Gel Colours in pencil form, which is pretty cool because sometimes, you just want the ease of a pencil when you're applying eyeliner.

And ColourPop has the same shades for both the Creme Gel Colours and Creme Gel Liners, so if you prefer one formula over the other, you can always get the color that you want.

I picked up the Creme Gel Liners in four shades: Best O, a deep burgundy brown; Call Me, a plummy brown; Over Board, a metallic bronze; and Stomper, a dark cool-toned brown.

The liners come in white plastic packaging and twist up so you don't have to sharpen them.

The formula is very nice -- creamy, smooth, and nicely pigmented.

I don't have any problem with smudging or transferring when I use them on my upper lash line.

I've also been surprised by how well they apply and last on the waterline. I usually have a tough time getting liners to show up on my waterline, and when they do, they don't last very long. I get a good six hours of wear with these liners, which is seriously impressive in my book.

I have had one problem with these liners, though -- the actual liner fell out of the tube in two of the four that I purchased.

I was able to put them back inside and I can still use them, but I have to be extremely careful with those shades.

I would write off it happening to one of the liners as just a fluke, but the fact that it happened to two out of the four I purchased makes me wonder if it's some sort of design flaw with them.

In the interest of full disclosure, though, the possibility of that flaw hasn't stopped me from purchasing a couple more of the liners since this first batch -- and I haven't had any issues with the new ones so far, so maybe ColourPop has fixed whatever the issue was.

Because these liners are only $5 each, I would still recommend giving them a try, especially because they come in so many fun and interesting colors.

You can purchase these liners at the ColourPop website.

Have you tried the ColourPop Creme Gel Liners? Which shades are your favorites?
