CoverGirl Queen Collection Vivid Impact Eyeliner Review, Swatches and Photos

The latest addition to CoverGirl Queen Collection are six new Vivid Impact Eyeliners that promise to create striking, lasting eyeliner looks with the effortless application of a pencil.

CoverGirl Queen Collection Vivid Impact Eyeliners

With a smudger tip on one end, the Vivid Impact Eyeliners look exactly like CoverGirl Liquiline Blast Eyeliner. The only difference? The colors, which are marketed towards women of color but much, much better in my opinion and perfect for anyone. Midnight is a flat black; Truffle is a flat brown; Jade 310 is a dark teal with shimmer; Cabernet is a dark burgundy; Gilt is an olive green with shimmer and Amethyst is a silvery purple with shimmer.

Just like the Liquidline Blast, these eyeliners have a creamy texture that glides on like butter with zero skipping and tugging. Color payoff is also excellent and once it sets, it will not budge, not even if you rub it or put water over it.

Bottom line, CoverGirl Queen Collection Vivid Impact Eyeliner is amazing and definitely comparable to my favorite Jealousness Waterproof Gel Eyeliners and Make Up For Ever Aqua Eye Eyeliners.

  1. I can’t wait to try these, I haven’t seen them in the drugstores yet, but I’ll be on the lookout for amethyst especially! Thanks for this!

    • Hi Anna,

      To tightline, I like to either use a gel liner (MAC Fluidlines) or a pencil topped with a long-lasting liquid liner (K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo).

  2. I tried to sharpen the covergirl Queen eyeliner pencil have I screwed it up? I did noy read the instructions…Help please,
    Thanks,
    Deb

    • Hi Deb,

      Yes you can sharpen them. All you need is a regular sharpener for pencil liners. I use the one by Milani and it works great.

  3. I LOVE these eyeliners they go on very smooth and that’s good for me because my lashes are so curly they curl back into my eyelid so this pencil I can put on liner with ease!!

  4. I bought two of the Queen Vivid Impact eyeliners and cannot sharpen them. I cannot believe I paid that much for 1/4″” of liner. Great product just very expensive for amount you can use. Need to redesign packaging.
