ColourPop Midnight Super Shock Shadow

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).

Midnight is described as a “black undertone with a ton of gold glitter on top in a metallic finish.” It’s a blackened olive green with warm undertones and gold glitter. It had semi-opaque coverage that was buildable to opaque coverage with two to three layers of product. The texture was lightly emollient and blended out well without turning patchy. The eyeshadow was still going strong after ten hours of wear (no primer), but I did have a few stray glittery bits underneath my eye.

Porter is described as a “warm burgundy with gold multi-dimensional gold glitter on top [of] a metallic finish.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark cranberry with hints of warm, pinky-copper tones and subtle gold sparkle. The texture had a really creamy, smooth feel to it, and it applied with true-to-pot color with full coverage. It blends out with ease and doesn’t look patchy or faded. On me, I didn’t have any fading or creasing even after ten hours of wear. Colour Pop Lectra (DC, $5.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Heritage Rouge (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Hidden Motive (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar).

YSL Scandal #3 (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Telepathy is described as a “bright gold with a green undertone in an ultra-metallic finish.” It’s a bright, light-medium yellow gold with an almost “cool” undertone (compared to most golds, which are often orange-based) paired with a metallic sheen. The eyeshadow had great color payoff with a smooth, blendable consistency that applied beautifully and was still in pristine condition after ten hours of wear. Kat Von D Prophet (LE) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Goldmine (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Blitz (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Viseart Bijoux Royal #3 (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Too Faced Instigator (LE, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #4 (LE) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Hourglass Color Field #2 (P) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Weenie is described as a “pinky rose gold in a pearlized finish.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark coppery bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was nicely pigmented with full coverage and a creamy, moderately emollient texture (it felt “wetter” than most ColourPop eyeshadows). It sheered out just a wee bit when applied, but it layered well if you needed pristine, opaque pigmentation. It wore well for ten hours. Colour Pop La-La (LE, $5.00) is warmer (90% similar). LORAC Rose Gold (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever D708 Pinky Copper (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Reward Yourself (LE, $16.50) is darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Haze (LE, $45.00) is cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Luscious (LE, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Quite Yummy! (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).
