ColourPop Lovely, On the Rocks, Mooning, Bandit Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Lovely Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft light gold with … flecks of … glitter.” It’s a sparkling, light-medium gold with a glittery, metallic finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff, though the consistency was very smooth and lightly creamy, so it blended well on the skin. The color payoff was buildable to more opaque coverage, but there’s a fine line as you build to avoid it thickening as well. It lasted for nine hours but had noticeable fall out. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

ColourPop Deluxe, Rebel, Selfie, XO Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Shaaanxo Super Shock Shadow Set ($20.00 for 4 x 0.07 oz.) includes four earth-toned shades of cream eyeshadow. The four shades worked well together, and they could easily be used with other shades in the ColourPop formula. Three of the four performed very well, while the matte green fell short (though not a complete miss).
