ColourPop Super Shock Shadow | Review + Swatches

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow-That IT Girl-1

It has been a little while since I’ve done an eyeshadow review (almost 6 months to be exact) because I have been focusing a lot of my recent beauty purchase on skin care and lipstick (of course).  I’ve been observing all of the hype on YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram over ColourPop Cosmetics, a rapidly growing Los Angeles based brand.  Before this review I didn’t own any of their products and despite me spending a ton of time on their website I had yet to be compelled to order anything because lets face it- I own a TON of makeup.   I’ve finally broken my eyeshadow fast and had a chance to try ColourPop Super Shock Shadow and I could just pinch myself!  Why did I wait so long to get my hands on these?!


ColourPop Super Shock Shadow-That IT Girl-2

The ColourPop Super Shock Shadow is a product unlike anything else that I have currently in my makeup collection.  Each 1oz shade cost $5 each and come individually packaged in white eyeshadow pots with a twist-off cap and a clear window bearing a “ColourPop” hologram.

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow Swatches-That IT Girl

What stood out to me most is the lightweight crème to powder finish that felt a little damp upon touch. This formula completely erases the issue of fall out that accompanies most high-impact or shimmer eyeshadows.  Each color is very buildable and best applied using your finger tips and best blended using a fluffy blending brush.  Because of this product’s unique texture, it is absolutely essential that the shadow is not left open for extended amounts of time and is tightly closed after each use.

Once dry, these colors do not budge AT ALL.  I’m not sure if I will even need to use an eyeshadow primer before application because I literally had to scrub these colors off with an oil based makeup remover when swatching.

I found it really hard to choose my favorite out of the bunch as all of these eyeshadows are absolutely amazing. I was a little skeptical about I Spy because it looked a little chalky with 1-2 layers of application.  It wasn’t until I applied quite a few layers that I was able to see its true color payoff. Central Perk will probably get used as a crease color for many of my fall makeup looks because it blends very well and will add an intense dose of vampy warmth to any eyeshadow look.  During the summer I pretty much stuck to nude eyeshadow looks but Boy Band, Hammered, Coconut, Etiquette, and Lace are so pigmented and just so darn pretty that I may have to rock them all fall and winter.
