Urban Decay Stash 24/7 liner and Clinique Egyptian creamshaper comparison

I adore my Clinique creamshaper for eyes in Egyptian, it's such a great color to use when I am sick of plain black. It's a very dark blackened green with golden shimmers.
When I first got my Urban Decay 24/7 Stash eyeliner I had a feeling it wasn't an overly unique color in my stash. It's a deep olive green with golden glitter.
Since I recently realized that they are quite similar, I thought I'd swatch them.

Here are comparison pictures:

It does seem that Egyptian is slightly more blackened green than Stash. It also seems that Stash has more noticeable golden glitter.

When I look at them both in direct light they look identical. I can't tell them apart. I also did a shower test to see which one would stay on better. They both stayed on well until I completely scrubbed them off. They are equally great liners.
Clinique creamshapers cost $17, while Urban Decay costs $19.

Although they are dupes and I use both, I think I prefer my Egyptian creamshaper.
When I apply it I only have to go over twice to get a very intense line, but with Stash I end up using more since it's a lot softer and doesn't go on a deep enough color or create a sharp line.
I own 4 or 5 different creamshapers and I really love them. They go on really smooth and intense, and they last a long time.

Both look very nice, one of my closest friends also prefers Clinique's version over all other blacks too hehe
