Falling Up

ColourPop Falling Up Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light, golden peach base with pink and blue glitters over a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation–a little more than it initially appeared in the swatch (more noticeable in the angled swatch)–that applied evenly to bare skin. The consistency was smooth, almost wet to the touch, but it was creamy and lightweight with a nice dry down–quick enough not to settle into creases but allowed me to play and diffuse the edges as it dried down. It lasted nicely for 10 hours with very little fallout over time but no creasing.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.07 oz. - $85.71 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).

IRL

ColourPop IRL Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium, rosy-copper base with gold-to-green shifting sparkle and pearl. It had good color coverage, though it needed a second layer for truly opaque coverage, with a smooth, blendable consistency that wasn’t too creamy or too dry in the pot. The cream eyeshadow applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well along the edges without disrupting the sparkle much (a couple of flecks came loose). It stayed on well for 10 hours with very little fallout over time but no creasing.

ColourPop ZZZ Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a deep, coppery brown with warm, reddish-copper and copper shimmer over a metallic finish. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly across my lid in a single layer. The texture was wetter than most of the Super Shock Shadows but consistent in the feel of the more metallic shades. I really appreciated that it didn’t sheer out too readily so I could get precision and coverage with brushes as well as fingertips. The edges blended out without much effort, even after it had dried down. It wore well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.
