Oh hello vibrant! Etude House Color Pop Drawing Show Creamy Eyeliner Pencils are a range of new popping shades of liner available for Summer 2013 that recently introduced with the Etude House Color Pop Collection.
Ok, like we need more eyeliners right…especially with Urban Decay monopolizing the unusual shades of eyeliner market right?
But…props to Etude House because seriously the Color Pop Drawing Show Creamy Pencil Collection has shades that Urban Decay hasn’t even dreamed up yet like bright orange and red. You know you want red eyeliner, don’t sit there shaking your head no, deep in your heart you kinda having this lemming for a red eyeliner.
That’s why this collection of eyeliners appeals!
Etude House Color Pop Drawing Show Creamy Pencil might seem like any other eyeliner out there BUT they have an advantage with shades that aren’t commonly offered by brands.
Granted you have navy blue, green, and even brown in this collection but the real joy comes from the unusual shades like tangerine, bright yellow, and red. Outside of Sleek Make Up not a ton of brands have embraced shades like this so that in itself makes this collection very unique.
They have the market pegged for fun shades but they don’t quite have the formula down in my humblest. These are creamy with a small bit of shimmer in each shade however, the texture seems a little drier to me and it tugs when applied. It doesn’t have that smooth, creamy glide a good eyeliner pencil typically has. PK104 is a sparkling baby pink and this actually had a far nicer formula compared to the other two shades I got which were OR201 and RD303. PK104 had a smoother, creamier skip free application where as OR201 and RD303 I felt like I had to go over my line to get the smoothest appearance. Don’t get me wrong they are creamy just not creamy enough for me especially when compared to formulas like Pixi Eyeliner or Urban Decay. I think if you have oily lids you’ll like these as the formula will likely apply easier for such a skin type however, those with drier eyes might feel they aren’t as creamy as they had hoped for. They wore strong for me once applied and I didn’t have issues with the color fading or smearing/smudging away.

On the up side…the colors are stupid cool! Tangerine eyeliner? Sign me up! I look a fool in my photos below using on the lash line only but you can pair it up with a softer peach or gold shadow and it’ll look fabulous!
If nothing else Color Pop Drawing Show Creamy Pencils hit all the right marks for unique shades.
