ColourPop Get Leid Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Get Leid + Jelly Fish Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Get Leid Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a ” bright warm peach in a matte finish.” It’s a brightened, medium orange with a hint of red in it, and it has a matte finish. The texture was drier than I’ve encountered in ColourPop’s matte blushes, which made it harder to blend and even out on the skin, especially with fingertips. I felt that a brush made it easier to get even coverage, but it was slow-going as you really had to build it up in layers as the drier consistency resulted in less color picked up by the brush. Once the blush was on it, did wear for eight and a half hours on me. Dior Coral Sunset (002) (LE, $57.00) is lighter, powder. Colour Pop Tasty (P, $8.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Tarte Fame (LE, $26.00) is a powder. Colour Pop Bonus (P, $8.00) is slightly less red-toned. Colour Pop Tonic (P, $8.00) is darker. Guerlain Petrouchka #9 (LE) is cooler-toned. Makeup Geek Summer Fling (P, $9.99) is powder. NARS Exumas (P, $39.00) is slightly darker. MAC Bad Girl Gone Good (LE, $21.00) is browner, more shimmery, powder. theBalm Swiss Dot (P, $22.00) is darker, powder. NARS Gilda (P, $30.00) is powder, darker. MAC Melba (P, $21.00) is more muted, powder. MAC Coppertone (P, $21.00) is more muted, powder. Illamasqua Expose (P, $26.00) is darker, powder. Chanel Frivole (P, $45.00) is slightly darker, powder. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Jelly Fish Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “bright red coral in a pearlized finish.” It’s a bright, medium-dark coral-red with pink and gold pearl. It is intensely pigmented–one of the most pigmented of all the blushes I’ve tried by the brand–and a little goes a very, very long way. I would highly recommend using a brush to apply this and build up as you need! The consistency is creamy, smooth, and very blendable on the skin. The finish reads more luminous with a sheen but not an overtly sparkly finish once blended. It wore well for nine hours on me before fading. NARS Panic (Right) (P) is lighter, powder. Surratt Beauty Ponceau (P, $32.00) is lighter, powder. IT Cosmetics Pretty in Peony (P, $24.00) is a powder, pinker. Clinique Ginger Pop (01) (P, $21.00) is more muted, powder. Chanel Intonation (69) (LE, $38.00) is less shimmery. theBalm Toile (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, powder. MAC Simmer (LE, $27.00) is pinker, powder. Tom Ford Beauty Flush (P, $55.00) is lighter, powder. NYX Pinched (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, powder. MAC Fleet Fast (LE, $21.00) is more muted, powder.

ColourPop Rumer Has It Super Shock Shadows
ColourPop Rumer Has It Super Shock Shadows

Just recently, there were six new, limited edition shades of ColourPop Super Shock Shadows ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) released in collaboration with Rumer Willis. Four of the shades were released last week, and two were released this week (and those two I don’t have, but I plan to buy next time I make an order). This set of shades is ideal for someone who loves a lot of sparkle, glitter, and their smoky eyes. There are also three lipsticks launched within the collaboration (two of which I will review soon!).

ColourPop Swan Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft creamy white with tons of silver glitter and hints of pink duochrome glitter in a metallic finish.” It’s a medium white that leans slightly warm-toned with a lot of silver sparkle and glittery bits. The glitter made more of an impact than the underlying base color, which was semi-sheer (even applied with a fingertip). There is fall out from the shade when blended during application, and there was some fall out during wear. The texture had a chunkiness to it that made it harder to get even color out of the pot with a brush–it seemed to flake away in chunks, so fingertip application is definitely the preferred method with this shade. It is best patted on or layered over another shade to add sparkles. It didn’t crease over a nine hour period. MAC Permanent Press #1 (LE) is less sparkly. YSL Eau d’Argent (02) (P, $30.00) is a liquid. Urban Decay Cosmic (P, $20.00) is more sparkly. MAC Smoky Black Friday #1 (LE) is less glittery. Too Faced Frost (LE, $16.00) is less glittery. MAC Regal Affair (LE, $19.50) is similar. Make Up For Ever ME122 Snow (P, $21.00) is brighter, less glittery. Marc Jacobs Beauty Stagelight (302) (LE, $32.00) is similar. Dior Golden Snow #3 (LE) is similar. MAC Angelic (P, $21.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Ice Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “true silver with tons of multi-dimensional highly reflective glitter in a metallic finish.” It’s a medium, pewter with larger silver glitter and multi-colored micro-glitter and sparkle; the sparkles tend to look like teal, silver, and gold. The texture was lightly emollient with semi-opaque color payoff from the base color with lots of glitter payoff. I was able to apply this shade with a brush without texture or payoff being an issue, though I highly recommend using a flat, synthetic brush. A fluffier brush will tend to catch the glitter and cause more fall out during application as a result, though fall out during wear resulted in less than five sparkles underneath the eye after nine hours of wear. Colour Pop Snow Flurry (LE, $5.00) is slightly warmer. Chanel Tisse Venitien #3 (P) is darker. Kat Von D Melancholia (P) is darker. Sephora Collection Lunar Eclipse (98) (P, $13.00) is similar. Dior Constellation (864) #2 (LE) is less sparkly. Chanel Moon River (LE, $34.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Feather Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “true liquid gunmetal in an ultra metallic finish.” It’s a medium-dark gray with cool undertones and a pearly sheen (but not “ultra metallic”). It had good color payoff that applied very smoothly and evenly, and the consistency blended out well on the lid without losing intensity. On me, it wore well for ten hours without fading or creasing. YSL Grey Splash (01) (P, $30.00) is more sparkly. MAC Bao Bao’s Jewels #5 (LE) is more metallic. Hourglass Graphite #4 (P) is darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Enigma #2 (P) is similar. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Parisienne #1 (LE) is darker. Stila Black Diamond (P) is warmer. Make Up For Ever ME108 Steel (P, $21.00) is darker. NARS Jardin Perdu (Left) (LE, $24.00) is lighter. Kat Von D Santeria (LE) is darker. Tarina Tarantino Lovely #3 (P) is lighter. Fyrinnae Frostbytes (P, $6.80) is lighter. Makeup Geek Prince Charming (P, $6.99) is less shimmery. MAC Graphic Style (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery. Giorgio Armani #21 (LE, $33.00) is darker. Estee Lauder Cyber Silver (LE, $24.00) is more metallic. Bobbi Brown Silver (LE) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Raven Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as an “intense black lightly dusted with silver flecks in a metallic finish.” It’s a deepened, medium-dark black with silver sparkle. The cream formulation really shines here, because it enables the sparkles to actually adhere with the base product and onto the lid, rather than disappear in your brush or the air. I applied it with a flat, synthetic brush and had no issues getting opaque coverage out of it with noticeable sparkle. I didn’t get fall out during wear that I could detect, and there were a few stray sparkles after ten hours of wear but no creasing. Colour Pop Friskie (P, $5.00) is a lesser version of this shade. Kat Von D Black Star (LE) is a powder. Make Up For Ever D104 Black Diamond (P, $21.00) is a powder. Ulta Night Sky (P, $10.00) is less sparkly, powder. MAC Jet Couture (P, $21.00) is more sparkly, warmer. MAC Black Diamond (LE, $16.50)is less sparkly. Lancome The New Black (P, $19.00) is a powder. Chanel Mirifique (P, $36.00) is slightly darker. Buxom Black Lab (P, $18.00) is less sparkly. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Boba Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Boba Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Boba Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone true pink with golden highlights.” It’s a light-medium, cool-toned pink with lighter gold shimmer. Applied, the finish looks more like a luminous sheen than a frosted or overtly shimmery highlighter. This shade is more like a highlighting blush, as it gives color as well as highlights the skin. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and very blendable. On me, it wore well for eight hours before fading. MAC Please Yourself (LE, $27.00) is darker. MAC I’m a Lover (P, $23.50) is less shimmery. MAC Just a Wisp (P, $27.00) is lighter. Makeup Geek Head Over Heels (P, $9.99) is less shimmery. NARS Adelaide (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery. MAC Well Dressed (P, $21.00) is lighter. MAC Pearl Blossom (LE, $26.00) is lighter. Illamasqua Morale (P, $26.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Lunch Money Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “soft light gold with a reflective golden duochrome finish.” It’s a light, golden beige with a frosted sheen and warm undertones. It had good color payoff that yielded full coverage applied with fingertips, but the lightly creamy, emollient consistency blended out well so it could be sheered out with fingertips or applied sheer from the get-go with a brush. The finish may seem frosted in a swatch, but on the skin, it’s a luminous glow that doesn’t emphasize pores, but it does have very slight sparkle that is sometimes visible (depends on the angle), though it doesn’t seem to migrate. It lasted for eight hours on me. Estee Lauder Courreges (LE, $32.00) is a powder. MAC Perfect Topping (Lightness of Being) (LE, $30.00) is more beige. MAC Born to Dazzle (LE, $28.00) is more sparkly. Tarte Champagne (LE) is similar, powder. Urban Decay Craze (LE) is lighter, powder. Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is powder. theBalm Solid Gold (P, $24.00) is darker. Illamasqua Aurora (P, $24.00) is a touch lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
