ColourPop Forever Freshman Super Shock Shadow Set

ColourPop Forever Freshman Collection ($30.00 for 0. oz.) is a set of six cream eyeshadows in shades of the 90s, and they continue to deliver what we’ve come to expect from ColourPop’s cream formula: good pigmentation and long-wear. The set works well together, and you can easily use two or three at a time to get even more versatility out of the combination. On one hand, they’re all loose pots so it’s not as convenient as a palette, but on the other hand, they’re readily incorporated with whatever other eyeshadows you own.

MAC Imaginary & Nice Composure Pro Longwear Paint Pots

MAC Imaginary Pro Longwear Paint Pot ($22.00 for 0.17 oz.) is described as a “deep blue plum shimmer.” It’s a deepened, muted, navy blue with fine navy blue and violet pearl. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a lightly creamy consistency, but it is really dense in the pot. The denser texture made it less blendable on the skin; it was better as a defined area rather than used as a cream eyeshadow (so I preferred it as an eyeliner). The color lasted for twelve hours on me before starting fade (the formula has a stated wear time of 15 hours per MAC’s site). Bobbi Brown Blue Onyx (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Night Sky (Cream) (LE, $45.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Goddess (LE, $18.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). NARS Ubangi (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, darker, glossier (90% similar). Too Faced De La Mer (P, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Minuit (02) (P, $38.00) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Shop & Drop (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Givenchy Bleu Soie (4) (P, $23.00) is brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Heroine (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). bareMinerals Shaken Not Stirred (P) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Intoxicate & Jet Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Intoxicate Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “caramel brown.” It’s a medium-dark, yellowed brown with warm, orange undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and creamy consistency that blended out nicely on the skin without sheering out. I had no issues applying it with a brush (MAC 242), but you can also use fingertips if you prefer. It wore well for ten hours without fading or creasing.
