ColourPop Where the Night Is Super Shock Shadow Set

ColourPop Midnight Super Shock Shadow ($20.00 for 0.28 oz. or $5.00 for each 0.07 oz. shade) is a collection of four Super Shock Shadows that can be purchased a “set,” but you can also purchase each shade alone. There’s no monetary advantage to purchasing the set; the only difference is you would get the packaging that reflects the collaboration and collection’s name. It’s a nice selection of shades, and all four shades performed well for me and were consistent with the formula I’ve come to know and love. If you’re unfamiliar with the Super Shock Shadow formula, it is more like a cream-powder hybrid than traditional cream eyeshadow. If you touch it, the product feels more like a sponge or stiff mousse, as there is light give, but it doesn’t have the same emollient or thickness of traditional cream products. The texture is thinner and is manipulated on the skin more like a powder. The brand says that using fingertips yields the greatest pigmentation, and if you prefer, synthetic brushes, but I find synthetic brushes to work well for applying and still getting great pigmentation out of the majority of shades (typically the very glittery shades are ones where fingertips really do improve them).

ColourPop Aquarius, Taurus, Rayezor Lippie Stix

ColourPop Aquarius Lippie Stix ($5.00 for 0.0357 oz.) is described as a “soft pink nude in a creme finish.” It’s a light-medium, rosy beige with warm undertones and a soft shine. The color was muted enough without being dark that it surprised me in its versatility–I felt like it could tone down a look or brighten a look. It had mostly opaque coverage with a very creamy, emollient texture with more slip than your average shade in the Lippie Stix range. It was very lightly hydrating over the four hours it lasted, but I did notice some of the color slipped into lip lines after two to three hours of wear. The thicker, creamier texture made it easier to press my lips together to smooth the color back out while wearing it, but it was worth noting. Givenchy Beige Mousseline (101) (P, $36.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Soft Pout (P, $23.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Oh Snap (LE, $5.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Bite Beauty Honeycomb (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Bite Beauty Caramel (P, $28.00) is darker, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Choker (LE, $5.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Bite Beauty Amaretto (P, $24.00) is cooler (85% similar). Tarte Namaste (P, $20.00) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). Estee Lauder Covetous Nude (P, $30.00) is darker, less glossy (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Severine (112) (DC, $30.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Zenith (LE, $30.00) is less pigmented, cooler (85% similar). Maybelline Truffle Tease (930) (P, $7.49) is darker, warmer, glossier (85% similar).

ColourPop Santos & New Lowes Super Shock Cheeks

ColourPop Santos Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “soft golden bronze.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark bronzy brown with warm, rosy undertones and a pearly sheen. There’s a plum/rosy vibe I get from it that makes it appear less bronzy, especially as I blended it out (even against my warmer undertones). The texture was smooth, soft, and blendable without being too dry or too emollient. It had buildable color coverage from semi-sheer to opaque, depending on how you applied it (which is how it is described). This shade wore well for ten hours before fading. Urban Decay Paranoid (P, $26.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NYX Glow (P, $6.50) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Laura Mercier Seduction (P, $44.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Glo Up (LE, $8.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop The Golden Child (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). theBalm Betty-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Giorgio Armani No. 17 (P, $62.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented, cooler (85% similar). Too Faced Sun Bunny #1 (P) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Poolside (P, $8.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Puppy Love Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Puppy Love Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft peach with pink and gold duochrome.” It’s a light peach with warm undertones and an iridescent pink sheen. It read more pink sheen than duochrome to me (I couldn’t detect as much of a shift when moving my arm). Dior Rose Garden #4 (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). Guerlain Les Precieux #2 (LE) is brighter (90% similar). Zoeva Handmade (P) is more shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar). LORAC Dream Girl #10 (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar).
