ColourPop Get Lucky, La La, Eve, Mittens Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Get Lucky Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “liquid-like true gold.” It’s a medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a soft, metallic sheen. It had very good color payoff that went on smoothly and was easy to work with on the lid as it blended beautifully. The color didn’t show any signs of creasing after ten hours of wear. LORAC Unlimited (P) is brighter. Chanel Rêve d’Orient #3 (LE) is a powder. Tarte No Champagne, No Gain (LE) is a powder. Too Faced Honey Pot (LE, $16.00) is a powder.

ColourPop Girly, Eye Candy, Dasher, Envy, Cricket Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is supposed to be a long-wearing, pigmented, blendable cream-powder hybrid eyeshadow. Overall, this is true of my experience with the formula in general, though some shades could be slightly more pigmented and some of the more glittery shades are prone to fall out (both during application as well as when worn, but primarily during application). I’m most impressed by the long-wear I get from the formula, which tops in at ten hours without fading or creasing with most shades. You can use fingertips to apply, but I’ve found natural or synthetic brushes to work quite well with the majority of shades (though there are a few that brushes don’t work well with, noted as I discover them). Here are reviews for five more:

ColourPop I Heart This, Tinsel, Lectra, Farah, Onai Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop I Heart This Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned silvery taupe.” It’s a brightened, light-medium gold with a metallic, sparkly finish. It had excellent color payoff with a very smooth consistency. It had a lot of fall out during application (if you blend it at all, expect fall out), and then I had some fall out during wear (noticeable but not terrible) but no creasing or fading for ten hours.

ColourPop Mermaid Kiss, Ibiza, Kimono, Shameless Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Mermaid Kiss Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “neon yellow green with a pearlized finish.” It’s a brightened chartreuse green with warm, yellow undertones and a golden shimmer-sheen finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage but has a slightly translucency quality to it. I found it to be buildable to opaque color in two layers patted onto the lid (it seemed more pigmented applied with a brush than fingertip, actually). Once on, it wore well for ten hours without fading or creasing. Colour Pop Sour (P, $5.00) is lighter and yellower. Kat Von D Cult (LE) is darker, powder. Make Up For Ever S336 Lime (P, $21.00) is less shimmery. Make Up For Ever ME338 Acidic Green (P, $21.00) is more shimmery. Giorgio Armani #17 (P, $32.00) is darker, power. Fyrinnae Bitey Tyrannosaur (P, $8.25) is darker, powder. Sephora Collection Apple Mojito (06) (P, $13.00) is darker, less shimmery, powder. MAC Lime (P, $15.00) is matte, powder.

ColourPop Fringe, Amira, Hammered, Partridge Super Shock Eyeshadows

ColourPop Super Shock Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is supposed to be a long-wearing, pigmented, and blendable cream-powder hybrid eyeshadow. It feels more like a cream than a powder eyeshadow, and the brand is very careful to remind you to tightly screw the caps back on and not to leave them open for too long. I’m a big fan of this type of product, and I have had good luck with the majority of the formulas I’ve seen of its kind, including this one. I wore all four of these, and after ten hours, they didn’t appear to have faded or creased. I get more fall out during application than during wear, and these are quite glittery, so it is surprising, but it is not fall out-free–slight fall out but not enough that it looked like more had fallen than stayed on the lid. I recommend applying these prior to any base products, as there is some fall out during application. They’re a good cream eyeshadow, and the price point is really icing on the cake.

Tom Ford Platinum & Spice Cream Color for Eyes

Tom Ford Platinum Cream Color for Eyes ($42.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a warm, smoky taupe with a frosted shimmer-sheen finish. This shade is a real chameleon, though, because it will just as readily look like a bronze as it will a cooler-toned, almost purplish-taupe. I think it’s going to look a little different from person to person, depending on the lighting and what you pair it with, as a result (more so than most shades). This shade was released previously, and it’s back again for a limited time. It’s very pigmented–a little goes a long way–and the texture is a wet, mousse-cream, so it applies really well as it goes on evenly. It’s not the type of texture I’d expect to stay on well, but on me, it lasts eight hours before creasing slightly. Chanel Poesie #1 (LE) is lighter, more golden. Guerlain Petrouchka #5 (LE) is darker. MAC Mortal #5 (LE) is cooler-toned. MAC Trusted Instinct #2 (LE) is cooler-toned. Makeup Geek Night Life (P, $6.99) is similar. Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip #3 (LE) is similar. Make Up For Ever D562 Taupe Platinum (P, $21.00) is more sparkly. LORAC Mocha (P) is similar. Maybelline Sleek & Spice (95) (LE, $6.99) is cooler-toned. Sleek MakeUP Python (P, $9.99) is less shimmery. Sleek MakeUP Paradise on Earth (P, $9.99) is cooler-toned. Ulta Taupe (P, $10.00) is darker. Urban Decay Mugshot (P, $18.00) is darker. Urban Decay Liar (P, $18.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Her Cocoa #4 (LE, $15.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
