ColourPop’s Creme Gel Color in Swerve is the darkest, blackest eyeliner — quite possibly — that I have ever used. I just had to make that the first thing I wrote, because pigmentation is the primary thing I look for in eyeliners. In addition to Swerve, I also picked up Workout, a blackened forest green.

The other thing I look for in eyeliners is wear time. I have oily lids so I need something that will stay put. One of the main reasons I decided to check out these liners is because I had read that they stay put. While that is true, my oily lids really fight to break down this liner. It dries down after about three minutes and I find that by the end of the day, Swerve had faded a bit near the inside corners of my lids. However, I fell alseep in the eyeliner and when I woke up, most of it was still there, sooooooo overall this is a good eyeliner. And at $6.00 it really can’t be beat. I haven’t had a chance to test out Workout just yet but hopefully it performs just as well if not better.
Another win for ColourPop in my book.
