Six in the City

Colour Pop Six in the City Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle over a mostly matte finish. The texture was smooth, sponge-like, and a bit drier than most Super Shock Shadows, and I did find the base was more prone to emphasizing my lid texture due to that drier, almost more clay-like feel. It applied better with fingertips than brushes, and the latter I am typically able to use with most Super Shock Shadows. It wore well for nine hours with some fallout over time.

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.07 oz. - $71.43 Per Ounce

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow is a cream-based formula that comes in a multitude of shades and finishes. The more metallic shades have the most slip to them (they have a “wetter” feel), while the more matte ones have a firmer, more clay-like consistency. Almost every shade I’ve tried from ColourPop has been exceptionally long-wearing (10+ hours of wear, usually there until I remove, even 14 hours later). The pigmentation can vary from shade to shade, but the average shade is quite pigmented.

From feedback I’ve seen from readers, many love them but some don’t like them at all. They aren’t a traditional cream eyeshadow, as they are denser (more sponge-like), and they apply best with flat, firm, synthetic brushes (I like the MAC 242 and 249) for me. The brand recommends using fingers for the most pigmented application, but I’ve only felt that fingers were necessary on a few shades (usually the super glittery ones).

The more matte shades can be on the drier side and vary from medium to opaque in coverage, though they're often buildable.  They can be a little hard to diffuse the edges of, though some are lovely to work with.

The more glittery shades have been the weakest to me, as they can be sheerer or harder to apply.  Sometimes, they are more pigmented and work like the other finishes in the formula, but often, they are sheerer and only function well patted on top of more pigmented eyeshadows to add glitter.  They do, however, tend to have little fallout over time with the occasional shade having a more moderate amount of fallout (but still less fallout than most powder eyeshadows with glitter).

Air

Wet ‘n’ Wild Air MegaGlo Highlighting Bar ($6.99 for 0.30 oz.) is a pale pink with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had medium coverage, which was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with two to three layers. The powder was soft, more loosely pressed to the point where it seemed a little drier/dustier in the pan, but I didn’t notice any of that in practice as I tapped on the highlighter on my cheek bones. It applied evenly and diffused beautifully along the edges, and as I blended the powder onto my skin, it looked “melted” and yielded a smooth sheen that did not accentuate my skin’s texture. It wore well for eight hours before it started to fade on me.

Formula Overview

$6.99/0.30 oz. - $23.30 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to yield a "lit-from-within glow" that "delivers a strobing effect" with a "super-smooth" texture. All of the shades felt a little dusty, a bit dry, in the pan and by the touch, but they applied beautifully and sat well on my skin--they almost "melted" onto the skin for a very smooth, luminous sheen. The pigmentation ranged from medium to opaque, but the ones that weren't full coverage were buildable. They lasted between seven and eight hours on me.

Soft and Sultry

Milani Soft and Sultry 12-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($20.00 for 0.48 oz.) contains a mix of neutrals, taupes, and deep gray/black hues. It has “smoky eye” written all over it. For someone who regularly uses eyeshadow primer and prefers to build up some of their mid-tone shades, I think it would work just fine, but my experience was that several of the matte shades were a little too powdery to remain pigmented in practice, had some fallout, and overall, the formula used in the palette was shorter-wearing than average. Used over primer, they lasted longer (12 hours), but they did show fading/creasing sooner than better formulas, even over primer.

Earth

Wet ‘n’ Wild Earth MegaGlo Highlighting Bar ($6.99 for 0.30 oz.) is a pale gold with warm, yellow undertones and a luminous sheen. It had rich color coverage with a soft, lightly dusty texture that felt more loosely pressed but didn’t look dusty or dry on my skin. The highlighter applied evenly and almost appeared blended without having to do anything as the powder seemed to melt on my skin. It produced a noticeable glow that sat well on my skin and did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight hours on me before I noticed signs of fading.

Pure Passion

Milani Pure Passion 12-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($20.00 for 0.48 oz.) is a warm-toned neutral palette that leans plum/copper with a mix of shimmers and mattes. The shimmers performed quite well–nicely pigmented, blendable, and easy to use–while the mattes were blendable, some were powdery and sheered out or needed a primer underneath to work well. I did find that most shades wore a bit shorter than average on their own, and even over primer, they showed noticeable fading/creasing after 12-14 hours of wear (I don’t normally see significantly signs of wear with primer).

Water

Wet ‘n’ Wild Water MegaGlo Highlighting Bar ($6.99 for 0.30 oz.) is a pale, sky blue with subtle, cool undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had good color coverage that was buildable to full coverage with half of a layer on top of the first. The texture was soft, more loosely pressed and somewhat dusty in the pan with slightly chunky sparkle/shimmer within it. This one was a bit harder to blend out and diffuse the edges of on my skin; it applied less evenly initially and took some doing to get a decent spread of coverage across my cheek bones. The finish was beautiful, though, as it was reflective and luminous without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. On me, the highlighter wore well for seven and a half hours before it started to wear away.

Formula Overview

$6.99/0.30 oz. - $23.30 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to yield a "lit-from-within glow" that "delivers a strobing effect" with a "super-smooth" texture. All of the shades felt a little dusty, a bit dry, in the pan and by the touch, but they applied beautifully and sat well on my skin--they almost "melted" onto the skin for a very smooth, luminous sheen.
