Best ColourPop Super Shock Shadows — Top 25

ColourPop Super Shock Shadows
ColourPop Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a cream-based formula that comes in a multitude of shades and finishes. The more metallic shades have the most slip to them (they have a “wetter” feel), while the more matte ones have a firmer, more clay-like consistency. Almost every shade I’ve tried from ColourPop has been exceptionally long-wearing (10+ hours of wear, usually there until I remove, even 14 hours later). The pigmentation can vary from shade to shade, but the average shade is quite pigmented. From feedback I’ve seen from readers, many love them but some don’t like them at all. They aren’t a traditional cream eyeshadow, as they are denser (more sponge-like), and they apply best with flat, firm, synthetic brushes (I like the MAC 242 and 249) for me. The brand recommends using fingers for the most pigmented application, but I’ve only felt that fingers were necessary on a few shades (usually the super glittery ones).

L’Oreal Colour Riche Eyeshadows (Part 2)

L’Oreal Colour Riche Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to be “soft, velvety” in texture with “intense pigments for exquisite color richness” and “lasts all day.” The texture is incredibly soft; to the point where I’m not sure these would travel as well as your average powder eyeshadow. The lighter, more matte shades are very white-based and can look chalky on my skin tone but should work better on fairer skin tones or coupled with a smoothing primer. Most of the shades were fairly pigmented and blendable on the lid with good adhesion without a primer with a few exceptions. Unsurprisingly, neutrals were more consistently higher-performing than the bolder/more colorful shades. I did run into wear issues, as all the shades I tried either faded and/or creased within six hours of wear, so I would recommend a primer with these. Initially, they reminded me of formulas like Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow, Kat Von D Metal Crush, etc., but while these have a similar velvety, smooth feel, they are looser once you touch your brush to them.

ColourPop Littlestitious & Molly Ultra Satin Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Littlestitious Ultra Satin Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “pastel dusty pink.” It’s a muted, light-medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque color payoff with a smooth, lightly creamy, thin consistency that applied evenly. The color wore well for six and a half hours without being drying. It’s a much lighter version of Dopey (which is too much darker to be considered a dupe, but I just wanted to point it out). MAC Really Me (P, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). Colour Pop Fame (LE, $5.00) is less pigmented, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Last Call (LE, $5.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Flynn (P, $35.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Bianca (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer, less glossy (85% similar). Bite Beauty Sugarcane (P, $26.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Shimmy (P, $6.00) is darker, brighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Bianca & Privacy Please Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Bianca Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft mauve pink.” It’s a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had fully opaque color payoff with a thin, spreadable consistency that yielded even coverage. The liquid lipstick dried down to a fully matte finish, but it had a very textured appearance where the lines of the lips were emphasized–it made my lips look drier than they actually were. The color lasted for six hours and was somewhat drying. MAC Really Me (P, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Urban Decay Oblivion (P, $17.00) is cooler, glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Last Call (LE, $5.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Colour Pop Clueless (LE, $6.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). Kat Von D Lovecraft (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Littlestitious (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler, glossier (85% similar). Maybelline Gone Greige (P, $7.49) is darker (85% similar). Tarte Texas Toast (LE, $20.00) is darker, glossier (80% similar). Urban Decay Backtalk (DC, $22.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Colour Pop Squeeze (DC, $5.00) is darker, brighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
