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).

Aura

Hourglass Aura Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium copper with warm, rosy undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had sheer coverage applied in a single layer, and it was buildable to medium coverage in two to three layers. I tried to achieve opaque coverage with this shade and needed four layers and a dampened brush. My guess was that the drier, more flaky texture in the pot resulted in a consistency that was harder to pick up, apply, and blend out. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me with slight fallout over time.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.12 oz. - $241.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "buildable" coverage from "a sheer crystal-like shimmer to an opaque prismatic glitter finish." It is a "hybrid cream formula" that "dries down." Each pot has a plastic stopper that sits on top of the eyeshadow, which can be used to press the product together if it loosens over time. The texture was very dense, felt more like a creamy powder than a cream--like if someone hadn't told me it was a hybrid, I would have just assumed it was a powder product. The brand recommends using fingertips for application, and that is the better way to apply for coverage and least fallout. I tried dry and dampened brushes to varying degrees of success (some shades were easier to work with than others). The pigmentation varied, too, from buildable to semi-opaque. They were fairly blendable and had slight fallout during initial application. They lasted between seven and eight hours on me with slight, additional fallout over time (but did not irritate my eyes).

Colour Pop Astrology Supernova Shadow ($7.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a bright, medium gold with subtle, warm undertones and a highly-reflective, metallic sheen. It’s like a “cooler” gold, but it doesn’t lean silver or get into pewter territory, so it still read warm-toned overall. It had rich, opaque pigmentation in a single layer, and a little went a long way, which I preferred to apply using a small, flat synthetic brush as it gave me more control over how much and wear it applied. The eyeshadow blended out nicely without losing its coverage. The texture was smooth, almost like a mousse but rather thin (but not watery!) and dried down fast enough not to settle into my lines but gave me enough time to work with it. On me, it stayed on well for over 10 hours.

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.17 oz. - $41.18 Per Ounce

Per the brand, the formula is supposed to be a "super longwearing liquid shadow" that can be used as "an all over base color, a touch of glitter, or extreme metallic foil" with "high coverage" and "no fall out." They were quite pigmented, and they sheered out a bit as liquid and cream products do as you diffuse the edges. The liquid eyeshadows applied better with an exterior applicator, whether synthetic brushes or fingertips (though I'd recommend swiping product onto a clean palette or brush rather than directly onto fingertips!). The wand applicator makes it hard to apply with precision and worked best for all-over, one-and-done application.

The formula felt watery and thin, and it spread out decently, but there was a lot of fine and larger shimmer/sparkle without a strong base color, so they tended to look better and more even in person as the shimmers reflected light. They dry down fast enough that I could diffuse and blend edges but not so slow that it pulled into my creases as it dried down. I found that they tended to breakdown from teary or watery eyes, as I always noticed gaps or missing pieces where I might water more (inner and outer corners) but did not have that issue elsewhere (like the lid).

I think the more glittery shades worked best as something layered on top of other products and not as much on their own unless used as liner--they seem to do okay as a thin line, likely due to the fact that it's just a lot harder to see any imperfections when the line itself is thin. More metallic, less sparkly/glittery, shades seemed to work best alone (as they were quite pigmented, too, so they didn't lend themselves well to layering).

I didn't have much fallout over time but occasionally, there was a small chunk of product that dropped (rather than a few stray glitters). I also felt like the smoothest application was with fingertips as a brush seemed to make the product more likely to clump up or accentuate lid texture.

Ultra Flesh (838)

Chanel Ultra Flesh (838) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft, pink-coral with warm undertones and a pearl sheen. It had opaque pigmentation, but the texture was drier and felt more silicone-heavy to me, which made it harder to apply evenly and even harder to diffuse evenly. The only way I could really get it to blend out was when I used fingertips, but then it was difficult to get any opacity out of the color. It wore well for 11 hours on me before creasing.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.14 oz. - $257.14 Per Ounce

Chanel describes the formula as a “smooth-textured cream shadow [that] glides on effortlessly” and is “long-wearing.” Overall, the consistency has moderate slip–emollient but not greasy or overly wet in feel–and feels more like a traditional cream eyeshadow than Chanel’s Illusion d’Ombres. They go on as a thin layer but have fairly good pigmentation. The formula dried down quite quickly leaving little time for blending or diffusing edges, even when working one eye at a time, which was where I struggled. I think some of them tended to work better as lid colors and using something else for a more diffused/blended out crease color. They did, however, wear impeccably for as long as fourteen hours on me–no creasing, fading, or flaking.

Summer Fling/Reignbow

Fenty Beauty Summer Fling/Reignbow Island Bling 2-in-1 Liquid Eye Shimmer ($26.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a dual-ended liquid eyeshadow with one shade that’s pigmented and opaque with a metallic finish and then a sparkling, top coat on the other side. They can be worn alone or layered. I liked the initial appearance of both shades applied, but it was trickier to diffuse the edge of Summer Fling without getting unevenness/some patchiness in the process, and they creased faintly on me faster than I expected.
