ColourPop Electric Slide Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Electric Slide Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Electric Slide Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “true gold.” It’s a light-medium, yellow gold with a pearly shimmer-sheen finish–pretty much just as the brand described it. The texture was smooth, creamy, and a cinch to blend out on the skin. I love that the formula can be used over foundation without disturbing your base products. The coverage is semi-sheer to opaque, depending on how much you apply initially or with what, which is in line with what the formula is supposed to be. The color was going strong after ten hours of wear. NARS Navagio Beach (LE, $39.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Milani Bronze Burst #1 (PiP, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Revolution Gold Addict (P, $6.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Side Piece (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Becca Opal (P, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). Dior Midnight Wish (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Maybelline Gold (300) (P, $9.99) is less pigmented (95% similar). NARS Jubilation (Left) (PiP, ) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Dior Transatlantique (LE, $58.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced You Light Up My Life (P, $30.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Oh, Darling! (P, $37.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Sun Rush (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Becca Topaz Flashes Gilt (LE, $34.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Viserion (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). L'Oreal Golden (P, $12.99) is darker (90% similar). bareMinerals The Shining Moment (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Dew You (P, $45.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Happy Go Dazzlingly (LE, $34.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Kaja Dreamy (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Laura Mercier Addiction (P, $45.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Leopard Super Shock Pressed Pigment ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “vivid violet blue.” It’s a meidum-dark purple with cool, blue undertones and a satin-matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage, and it was blendable along the edges, but the texture was dry and prone to crumbling when I applied too much pressure on it. Pressed Pigments are “not intended for the eye area,” so keep that in mind 🙂 I wore it as a blush, and it lasted for nine hours. Colour Pop Liaison (LE, $5.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). LORAC Ultraviolet (P, $23.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Urban (P, ) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Daddy (P, $5.00) is lighter (85% similar). Coloured Raine Purp Smurf (PiP, $6.99) is lighter (85% similar). Make Up For Ever M924 Purple (P, $17.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar).

I wanted Leopard as a blush. I’ve noticed some of my Colourpop blushes are starting to harden after six or so months, but the eyeshadows are not. Was hoping the formula of Leopard would be less prone to drying out like the eyeshadows, but now idk. What do you think?

I haven’t noticed any dryness with the blushes/shadows on my end yet, but this one is pretty dry already in the pot (like drier than any other shadow/blush I’ve gotten from them!).

I got this last Friday, and it’s very pretty but on the drier side, so doesn’t apply as smoothly or evenly as other CP products, but it’s work-able. I was planning to use as a blush to go with my purple lippies. I’m planning to use a skintoned MAC Cream base underneath, so it has something to stick to.

It’s funny that Leopard isn’t considered eye safe, because when I contacted Colourpop to ask what the models were wearing on the holiday 2015 page of the site, I got this response: “The model on the left is wearing Leopard and Dance Party on the eyes, Ho Ho liner, and Silk Lippie. The model on the right is wearing Rhinestone on the eyes with Fast Lane liner as a base, and Teeny Tiny (coming soon!) on her lips. :)”

So, I guess use it however you see fit. I need more makeup like I need a hole in my head, but I’m a sucker for purple and I’m very tempted to get this one!

Electric Slide looks like a more lux product than it’s price tag! Love it! It’s a toss-up between it and LG Gilded Honey.
As for Leopard, you know what I’d do with that! My bad! ?

Noooo that C- on Leopard 🙁

Though I have the Electric Palette so even if it didn’t have a C- I probably wouldn’t get it since it’s so close to Urban. I’m trying really hard to cut down my makeup collection and not buy new stuff that’s really close to something I already have.

Why on earth does colour pop write explicitly to apply their pigments to the eyelid and lower lash line and then in the same set of instructions write “not intended for eye area.” I find the whole marketing of pressed pigments like this to be very misleading… they seem to be marketed as eye shadow but include this strange disclaimer about not using it on the eyes. Is it just me or does that seem like a silly excuse to use unsafe or hazardous ingredients in products that will obviously be used on the eye by most consumers? (this is copy and pasted from the product description for leopard: “For maximum coverage: Use fingertip and tap shadow onto eye lid. A flat, fine tip synthetic brush will work fabulously as well and is actually better for a more detailed application close to the lash line. However, your fingertips make for the most intense application. To blend: Use a fluffy brush that has good movement, dip tip of the brush into the shadow and blend with a “wind shield wiper” movement throughout the crease of the eye. This will make your shadow softer and more diffused (like a total pro). When finished, close that sucker up tight! Don’t leave the jar opened for long periods of time, you may lose some of the magic that makes the Super Shock Shadow so amazzzing. ***not intended for the eye area”)

I mean, I kind of know why, but I don’t like it (I have made mention of it in the past for ColourPop as well as numerous other brands who all do it). It is likely that they are using certain pigments/dyes that are safe in EU/Canada but are not in the U.S. due to FDA regulations. I think on their original website, the Pressed Pigment info was a little different, but they must have not caught it on their new site.

This looks like it could be a dupe for Becca’s Champagne Pop! How do you think this would look on very fair skin? I’m tempted to order it, but I’m afraid it might pull too orange on me!

Champagne Pop is lighter and more shimmery. I don’t think this would be too orange, but do you feel like a lot of golds turn orange on you?

Dang, looks like the beautiful purples from this collection are both misses. Such a shame. 🙁
On the other hand, I’ll be excited to have this cream highlighter dupe for the LG and Dior ones!

Honest, didn’t even know the pressed pigments weren’t for the eyes! But they’re in the eyeshadow section… what else are they supposed to be used for? Blush? Then why not market them as blush? So confused! Electric Slide is gorgeous, though. =) Leopard is super pretty as a blush on you!

It’s pretty much what a lot of brands do when they want to use dyes to create more neon-hued shades, but the dyes aren’t permitted for usage on the eye by the FDA (U.S.). They are typically dyes that are OK in other countries (like Canada and Europe).

Ahhhh, Electric Slide. Such a sucker for golds… Between this, LE Cheap Date and the permanent Get Lucky, I feel like I can’t justify getting Electric Slide also! Oh, but I wants.

Oh, bummer. I was so excited to use Leopard on the crease with a glittery shadow like Dance Party on the lid. The low rating is also a dissapointment. I guess I’ll pass!
