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.

Constellation

Colour Pop Constellation Supernova Shadow ($7.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium, rosy copper with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer on top. The liquid eyeshadow had a smooth, thin consistency that was a bit more emollient than Astrology but was easy enough to apply, blend out, and wait to dry without it creasing before it finished drying down. The eyeshadow wore well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

OH NICE! I like how the texture of these seems to be smoother/denser with less chunky glitter and more “base pigment” than the earlier shades? Like they’re more like the Armani liquid shadows, maybe. I’ve got a couple from the first release and while I do love them, they’re definitely more limited in how/where you can use them. These seem much more versatile, yay!

Interesting that these scored so well. I have the Supernova shade ‘From the Valley’ and it is just terrible. As soon as I try to build the color up it becomes a thick chunky mess, and it flakes really easily. I wonder if these are a different formula.

Now these I would call great dupes, formula wise anyway, for some of the pricier liquid cream eyeshadows we’ve been seeing lately!

I have to get Astrology. I love Urban Decay Blitz. It is one of my all time favorites so this is a must have for me I really like Constellation also. With the price & rating the both are going in my next Colourpop order!
