ColourPop Throws It Back Fall 2015 Super Shock Shadows (Part 1)

ColourPop Super Shock Shadows
ColourPop Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Supermodel Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft golden ivory.” It’s a brightening, light-medium golden beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nice pigmentation with a soft, blendable, and smooth texture that applied easily to the lid and didn’t emphasize the skin’s natural texture. It was still going strong after ten hours of wear. NARS Shade IV (LE, $25.00) is darker (95% similar). Charlotte Tilbury The Rebel #1 (P) is more shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma (P, $6.00) is lighter (95% similar).

ColourPop I Spy Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft yellow peach.” It’s a light-medium orange with warm, yellow undertones and a satin sheen. It had good pigmentation, but the texture was drier and more challenging to apply as the color would turn patchy and just sit on the lid very unevenly. I couldn’t get it to look as smooth on the lid as it did on the skin, even when patting it on with fingertips. Colour Pop Just a Sip (LE, $5.00) is darker (95% similar).

ColourPop Boy Band Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “intense red copper.” It’s a muted, medium-dark bronzy brown with warm, yellow-orange undertones and pink and gold shimmer. The consistency is soft, smooth, and extremely blendable on the lid without losing its intensity. It had fantastic color payoff and was fully intact after ten hours of wear. Guerlain Petrouchka #4 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Gravitational (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Antiqued (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar).

ColourPop Stereo Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “blackened burgundy with copper and pink violet duo chrome glitter.” It’s a deepened, burgundy-brown with warm undertones and lighter gold and plum sparkle. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a more emollient, thin consistency compared the average ColourPop eyeshadow. It applied better with fingertips or patted on in two to three layers for truer-to-pan intensity in practice. It wore well for ten hours with minimal fall out but no fading or creasing. Too Faced Pop (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Stila Deep Plum (LE, $18.00) is cooler (90% similar). theBalm Alice Copper (P, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar).

ColourPop Central Perk Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “dirty maroon.” It’s a medium-dark burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a drier consistency compared to other shades, though it wasn’t actually dry. The texture was smooth, squishy as you’d expect, but it could been more emollient to make blending easier. I liked how it applied with some effort, but just know that it takes some patience to work with. It wore for a full ten hours without fading or creasing. MAC Everyone's Darling (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Makeup Geek Bitten (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Goji (LE, $19.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

ColourPop Cruel Intentions, Never Been Kissed, Girl Power Super Shock Cheeks

ColourPop Cruel Intentions Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Cruel Intentions Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Cruel Intentions Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “warm rose.” It’s a lightly brightened, medium pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable coverage, and it applied with the most pigmentation with fingertips (exactly as described), but I had no problems using a stippling brush and using two layers for color. The texture was lightweight and blended out easily, more like a powder in that respect, and it wore for nine and a half hours on me. Tarte Genius (LE, $28.00) is glossier (95% similar). Tarte Ironic (LE, $28.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Irreplaceable (LE, $28.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Fetching (LE, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar).

ColourPop Never Been Kissed Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “dusty coral.” It’s a muted, medium coral with a hint of pink and warm undertones paired with a matte finish. The texture was smooth, blendable, and felt like a powder as soon as it hit the skin. The color payoff was buildable, just as described by the brand, and you’ll get the most opaque coverage with fingertips while brushes will yield less coverage, but the payoff is buildable in two to three layers. This shade wore for nine hours before fading on me. NARS Savage (LE, $30.00) is cooler (95% similar). Milani Coral Cove (05) (P, $8.99) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

ColourPop Girl Power Super Shock Pressed Pigments ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “bright red orange.” It’s an intense, medium-dark orange with warm red undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a smooth, blendable texture. It is a Pressed Pigment, and they are “not intended for use in the immediate eye area.” I’ve tested and used it as a blush, where it performed well–it blended out without issue and lasted for nine and a half hours.

ColourPop Be-dazzled & Guess Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Be-dazzled Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Be-dazzled Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Be-dazzled Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep true purple.” It’s a lightly brightened, medium purple with cool undertones and a vinyl-like sheen. It doesn’t dry down to a fully flat matte finish like a lot of the other shades have. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a thin consistency that is a little harder to apply evenly. The formula feels clingier and really emphasizes the natural texture and lines on the lips in a way that makes them look somewhat shirveled–it’s not as soft or smooth as the average ColourPop liquid lipstick. I noticed the color flaking away from the center of the mouth after four hours of wear, and it was fairly drying over time, though most of the color lasted for six and a half hours. Kat Von D Roxy (LE, $20.00) is more muted (90% similar). Makeup Geek Electric Slide (LE, $12.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Estee Lauder Shameless Violet (P, $30.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC She-Rebel (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). MAC Matte Royal (LE, $17.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Belladonna (DC, $18.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier (80% similar). Illamasqua Kontrol (P, $24.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). MAC 4Eva (P, $17.00) is lighter (80% similar). Illamasqua ESP (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). MAC Recollection (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer, less glossy (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Guess Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “dark blackened violet.” It’s a blackened purple with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation (one of the least pigmented shades I’ve encountered in the line-up!) that dries down to a mostly matte finish. Unfortunately, as it is a very dark color, that sheerness also came with unevenness. It wore for eight hours without flaking, and it was moderately drying after six and a half hours of wear. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Stud (LE, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Too Faced Melted Villain (P, $21.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Bite Beauty Black Truffle (P, $26.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). MAC Which Witch (LE, $17.00) is warmer, glossier (85% similar). MAC Smoked Purple (P, $17.00) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: ColourPop Ultra Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a long-wearing, pigmented lipstick that starts off glossy and dries down quickly to that super flat matte finish. They have minimal transfer with some of the lighter shades having almost none for the first few hours of wear, but any time you’ve had a meal, they lose that transfer-resistant quality to a noticeable degree. They tend to wear anywhere from six to ten hours with darker shades maintaining better color coverage and wear over a longer period of time. Some shades get a little drying about two-thirds to three-fourths through the wear, while a few shades have been fairly non-drying even many hours into wear. They fade away evenly with most color loss occurring from the center of the lips if eating a more oil-based meal but the majority of color survives a meal. Reapplication has been hit or miss and tends to depend on how well it wore away and how easily the shade applies normally, but reapplication tends to emphasize the lip’s natural texture significantly compared to initial application and gives lips a very wrinkled, dried-up look. I’ve layered gloss on top of some shades with moderate success, though it will obviously lose the matte finish and will transfer and I’ll get tiny flakes where the matte lip color has lifted by mixing with gloss but has been pretty minimal. The formula had no discernible taste or scent.

ColourPop Dr. M & Kapow Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Dr. M Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Dr. M Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Dr. M Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep blackened green.” It’s a cool-toned, green-leaning teal with very, very subtle emerald green pearl. It’s such a cool color, and I love that it applied with fully opaque, even color, but it emphasizes the texture/lines of the natural lip tremendously in a way that makes them appear raisin-like. Despite this, it didn’t seem to “crack” when I smiled, but it was a little more uncomfortable to wear (I felt more aware of it on than other shades in the range, even for liquid lipstick). It wore for nine hours and was moderately drying after five hours of wear.
Makeup Geek Twerk (LE, $12.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Illamasqua Apocalips (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). MAC Young Attitude (P, $21.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Chlorophyll (P, $18.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier (80% similar). MAC Show and Teal (LE, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Kapow Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “muted greey taupe.” It’s a medium-dark, purpled taupe with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. This was less of a flat matte finish and more of your traditional matte finish, and this shade had a much longer drying time compared to a lot of the range, so you’ll need to be careful as it dries down to avoid pressing your lips together or else the color will lift/flake off where the lips meet. I had very slight “cracking” with this shade after an hour and a half of wear. It was fairly comfortable to wear until four hours, where it felt a bit drying,a nd it lasted for seven hours. Makeup Geek Misfit (P, $12.00) is cooler (85% similar). Maybelline Gone Greige (P, $7.49) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). MAC Simply Smoked (P, $21.00) is more muted (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Sebastian (P, $18.00) is lighter, more muted, glossier (85% similar). MAC Deep Rooted (P, $17.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar).

ColourPop Mr. Blonde & Jellies Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Mr. Blonde Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Mr. Blonde Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Mr. Blonde Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright true turquoise.” It’s a brightened, medium sky blue with cool undertones and a satin-matte finish. It was mostly matte, but there was an almost vinyl-like sheen to it–and it took forever to dry down. Even when “dry” after a half hour, there was still a very light tack in places. This shade had intense pigmentation that went on smoothly and evenly, but it had a thicker consistency that “cracked” as soon as I smiled. It felt a bit clingier, and it was prone to flaking from the center of the mouth over time, though the majority of the color was intact after six hours. The formula was somewhat drying overall. NYX Blue Velvet (P, $6.00) is darker, more muted, glossier (90% similar). Make Up For Ever C602 (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Dreampot (P, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (85% similar). MAC Blue Bang (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery, darker, more muted (85% similar). MAC Instant Icon (LE, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pool Boy (P, $18.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar).

ColourPop Jellies Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “rich cobalt blue.” It’s a lightly brightened, medium-dark navy blue with cool undertones and a soft sheen. Like Mr. Blonde, it didn’t dry down to a flat matte finish, even after waiting for a half hour–it looked more like vinyl or plastic on. The texture of this one is very runny, and I urge you to keep your tube upright when you’re using it; I had it slightly angled, and I had blue lipstick spilled everywhere! It had mostly opaque pigmentation, but it was difficult to keep it smooth as it was slightly tacky for an hour of wear, so any time the lips touched within that first hour, there was a risk of the color lifting in places. It wore for seven hours in total, but I had some minor flaking from the center of the mouth. NYX Sinful (P, $6.00) is warmer, glossier (90% similar). Anastasia Primary #5 (Vol. 1) (P) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Midnight Troll (LE, $17.00) is cooler, glossier (85% similar). Anastasia Paint (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Blue Bang (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Vain (P, $18.00) is darker, warmer, glossier (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: ColourPop Ultra Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a long-wearing, pigmented lipstick that starts off glossy and dries down quickly to that super flat matte finish. They have minimal transfer with some of the lighter shades having almost none for the first few hours of wear, but any time you’ve had a meal, they lose that transfer-resistant quality to a noticeable degree. They tend to wear anywhere from six to ten hours with darker shades maintaining better color coverage and wear over a longer period of time. Some shades get a little drying about two-thirds to three-fourths through the wear, while a few shades have been fairly non-drying even many hours into wear. They fade away evenly with most color loss occurring from the center of the lips if eating a more oil-based meal but the majority of color survives a meal. Reapplication has been hit or miss and tends to depend on how well it wore away and how easily the shade applies normally, but reapplication tends to emphasize the lip’s natural texture significantly compared to initial application and gives lips a very wrinkled, dried-up look. I’ve layered gloss on top of some shades with moderate success, though it will obviously lose the matte finish and will transfer and I’ll get tiny flakes where the matte lip color has lifted by mixing with gloss but has been pretty minimal. The formula had no discernible taste or scent.

ColourPop Beeper & Clueless Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Beeper Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “warm mid-tone taupe.” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. I could see this leaning more neutral on those with naturally pink or cool-toned complexions. It had good pigmentation that applied with smooth, even color without “cracking” or emphasizing lip lines. The color lasted for seven hours on me and was lightly drying after four hours of wear. MAC Burnt Spice (P, $21.00) is brighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Bow 'n' Arrow (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Bestie (LE, $20.00) is cooler (85% similar).

ColourPop Clueless Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “dusty mauve pink.” It’s a muted, medium pink with neutrla-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It is funny that ColourPop said “Never look like a full-on Monet” with this shade, because it actually looks quite horrific up-close as the color cracks and is very prone to flaking while worn. It had the color payoff, but it lacked the smoothness and more even fading/wear of the majority of the line. It was moderately drying and lasted for five hours before it had turned patchy and uneven enough that it needed to be removed. MAC Angel (P, $17.00) is cooler, glossier (85% similar). Colour Pop Love Muffin (LE, $6.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Last Call (LE, $5.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). MAC Crème Cup (P, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Kat Von D Lovecraft (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Maybelline Peach Buff (P, $7.99) is lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Shimmy (DC, $6.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Contempo (LE, $5.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Tarte Cabana Boy (P, $22.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Bite Beauty Sake (P, $26.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Colour Pop Cami (P, $5.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Kat Von D Melancholia (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Backtalk (P, $17.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Too Faced Queen B (P, $21.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Bianca (P, $6.00) is more muted, cooler (85% similar). Kat Von D Magick (P, $21.00) is darker, glossier (80% similar).
