I'm back with another review.. It feels like ages since my last review.. Phew.. Let's start. I have these as you seen in my July & August Haul. Color Pop is a summer line that was released on May/June, I posted the collection here. Bought it as there's a deal from Hotdeals in Korea. I love eyeliners, I want to collect many colors as it is fun to play with. Color Pop caught my eyes! Since it was on a good deal, really forget the price right now, but less than USD 20 for a set. It is such a steal.
This waterproof eyeliner set comes with creamy-textured, vibrant, and vivid POP & HOT colors that glide on smoothly for dazzling eyes.
How to Use:
Line Touch Tip: Draw along lashing starting from inner to outer eye area.Shadow Touch Tip: Draw along lashline and gently smudge.
Pack Size - 1.4g/0.04oz x 5 pcs
It is so cute like a pencil box made from tin can with a paper box. So colorful and remind me of school. I will use the box for other uses. Lol.
Open it up and there it is.. The cute pencils are inside. It is smaller than usual pencil eyeliner. It only contains 1.4g. The box is light and still can be carried when travelling, but I prefer just taking the pencil that I want to use.
There are 5 eyeliner pencils in it from dark to light color. This one is not as colorful as the other Color Pop series. I imagine more from blue and green but in this set there is only warm color.
On the other side of the pencil, there is a color code for each pencil. From the bottom: black, brown, red, orange, pink. The color of the ink that printed on the pencil also shows the color inside. Even though some of them is not look like it.
The back side of the box contains description and how to use, even though I think an eyeliner doesn't need how to use.
Review & Swatches
The five eyeliners without cap on. Pretty colors As you can see, the brown is softer than the red one even though the color on the pencil is darker.
It is crayon eyeliners as you can see from the point. Because it is smaller than usual eyeliner, it is more precision and easier to use.
The color I swatch only the orange and red, sorry for that. The other colors I give it to friends because I already own that color from my Holika Holika Jewel Pencil Eyeliners.
The texture is creamy but not too soft. I like it because it is easy to work with and I can line smaller line with it. Compared to Holika Holika, it is not as creamy as Holika Holika which is a plus because with Holika Holika I can't draw more precision line, only big line and I don't want to waste it by sharpening it all the time. It is also not as easy to smudge as Holika Holika. The finish is more to semi matte and a little bit waxy. The glitter is soft, Holika Holika is more harsh.
The color pigmentation is good, but I think Holika Holika is more pigmented because they are creamier. I usually double my line when using. I have tried other colors just a little bit because I want to know. The brown one is not pigmented, for you who wants light brown, this can be it. But if you're looking a pigmented real brown like me, this isn't it. The red is beautiful, darker than the brown and a little bit browny in the tone. Orange is fun to play with but I rarely use it. Red is more casual and easier to work with. Pink is for under eye, the color is so soft and not as glittery as Holika Holika. Maybe next time I'll make a swatch comparison. Just let me know if you need one.
It is waterproof and long lasting, not smudging. I use it for 8 hours and it still good. One of the best pencil eyeliner which I like.
For other swatches as shown in the color note.
It can be bought per pc, not always a set if you want. But for the price, Holika Holika is cheaper because it is bigger in size. Now I'm eyeing for NYX retractable eyeliner because it has more unique color and great pigmentation and it's retractable, nice for emergency no need to sharpen.

+ Cute packaging and comes in set
+ Long lasting
+ Travel friendly
+ Many color range
+ Soft glitters, doesn't hurt the eyes
- Pigmentation is good but not bold enough
- The size is so small
- White packaging makes it dirty if we open and close it many times
- The unique color is red and orange only in this set
I like the set and because of the deal of course. The color range is nice too, fun for summer. I like the texture because it is creamy but not too much. The glitter is not too big so it won't come into the eyes. Safer for contact lens user. But I disappointed with the brown color. It is typical Korean brown which not too pigmented. I won't repurchase because I want to try other brands and it is quiet expensive if there is no deal.
