ColourPop Birthday Cake Super Shock Shadow Review, Photos, Swaatches

Birthday Cake

ColourPop Birthday Cake Super Shock Shadow ($5.00) is a medium-dark, rosy copper with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of pink and copper sparkle. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to opaque coverage with two layers. The consistency was lightly creamy, emollient without being too slippery, and noticeably sparkly, so it did not feel quite as smooth as other Super Shock Shadows have in the past (but not in a dry way). It applied well on the lid and lasted for ten hours with minor fallout.

This eyeshadow is not available for purchase; it is a free gift with purchase on all ColourPop orders of $10 or more in celebration of their 3rd anniversary.

Free for Haul Friday, Volume #394

Happy Friday!

Each week, we share our beauty hauls, talk weekend plans and learn a little about each other.

Let's Chat!

Share your own answers in the comments!

  • Haul: Jouer summer collection, Drunk Elephant trial-size duos, Glamglow Flashmud, Sol de Janeiro Body Boom Set
  • Weekend plans: Possibly go grocery shopping, and if we do, then I want to stop by the Container Store to pickup more storage bins (for the garage, not for makeup for once!).
  • How do you like to start your mornings?: I like waking up without an alarm clock, and then lazing in bed for about ten minutes checking my email, social media, etc., followed by cuddle time with husband and then Mellan. I then get ready for my day and have my first latte. I look forward to that latte, haha!

Touch Me Baby

MAC Touch Me Baby Eyeshadow Duo ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) features two powder eyeshadows with one of them–Soba–being part of MAC’s permanent range. The two shades worked well paired together, but it was the type of duo that still made me want to reach for other shades. I was pleasantly surprised at how well Soba incorporated with Keep On Twinkling as the latter had a much more shimmery texture and sometimes mattes and shimmers do not play well together for blending/layering next to each other.

The Steve J. and Yoni P. Collection will be available in select stores and online on June 1st.

Product reviews from people I trust that are favorable or else when readers are really interested in a new brand, then I might wing it – but it depends. A new brand at Sephora doesn’t make me as nervous about a bunch of drama behind the brand (certainly possible that there is, though), and the drama behind new/smaller brands absolutely convinces me not to try the brand.

Curvii

ColourPop Curvii Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.085 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark peach with a hint of pink and barely there pink sparkle. It was supposed to have medium coverage, and it had more semi-opaque coverage when I tried it. The consistency was smooth, creamy, and mostly non-tacky, so it spread well across the lips with fairly even coverage. There was minimal streaking (mostly around the edges of my lips) with some color that had settled into my lip lines. It wore well for four hours and was lightly hydrating.

Jouer Skinny Dip Eyeshadow Palette Look

About this Look

Here’s a look using the new Jouer Skinny Dip palette! There are a lot of shimmer/sparkles in the palette, so for someone who isn’t testing the wear of it all, using a complementary palette with more satin/matte finishes would probably go a long way to getting more contrast in the crease.
