ColourPop Fringe Super Shock Eyeshadow
ColourPop Fringe Super Shock Eyeshadow

ColourPop Super Shock Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is supposed to be a long-wearing, pigmented, and blendable cream-powder hybrid eyeshadow. It feels more like a cream than a powder eyeshadow, and the brand is very careful to remind you to tightly screw the caps back on and not to leave them open for too long. I’m a big fan of this type of product, and I have had good luck with the majority of the formulas I’ve seen of its kind, including this one. I wore all four of these, and after ten hours, they didn’t appear to have faded or creased. I get more fall out during application than during wear, and these are quite glittery, so it is surprising, but it is not fall out-free–slight fall out but not enough that it looked like more had fallen than stayed on the lid. I recommend applying these prior to any base products, as there is some fall out during application. They’re a good cream eyeshadow, and the price point is really icing on the cake.

The pigmentation is mostly opaque to fully opaque on the lid, and I used both natural and synthetic brushes and didn’t find one to be better than the other (I tried MAC 239, 242, 249, Chikuhodo GSN-09, IT Cosmetics #105, IT Cosmetics All-Over Shadow). The brand recommended fingertips for application, which definitely transfers color, but I find my fingertips far too large for my eyelid and could only apply one–maybe two!–shades at a time, so brushes worked out a lot better for me. I think fluffier, more rounded crease brushes tend to work best for applying this type of formula into the crease, though, compared to a more tapered one. All four shades were easy to blend with each other, and they just applied like good eyeshadows should–not a lot of work, no packing color on, and they nearly blend themselves.

If you’re familiar with MAC Electric Cool (which has nearly identical packaging, just in black), DiorShow Fusion Monos, Chanel Illusion d’Ombres, or Buxom Stay-There formulas, then this is very similar. Most of those formulas contain more product than 0.07 oz., except MAC’s, which is the same size.

ColourPop Fringe Super Shock Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “shimmering champagne with gold and silver glitter.” It’s a light-medium gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen with fine gold and silver glitter. It had fully opaque color coverage, and it was creamy, blendable, and lasted for ten hours on me. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Night Owl #1 (P) is darker. Burberry Gold #4 (LE) is less metallic. Guerlain Petrouchka #1 (LE) is lighter. LORAC Cashmere (LE) is less metallic, lighter. LORAC Sand (LE) is lighter, less metallic. MAC Canter (LE, $15.00) is similar. Gucci Beauty Antique Gold (P, $37.00) is darker. Make Up For Ever ME512 Golden Beige (P, $21.00) is warmer. Make Up For Ever D416 Crystalline Yellow (P, $21.00) is lighter. Chanel Tisse Gabrielle #2 (P) is lighter. MAC In the Meadow #2 (LE, $21.00) is lighter. MAC Greenluxe #2 (P) is similar. Giorgio Armani #18 (LE, $33.00) is less metallic. Buxom Poodle (P, $18.00) is less glittery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

ColourPop Amira Super Shock Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as an “antique gilded gold [with a Metallic finish].” It’s a smoky, olive gold with warm undertones and bronze and gold glitter. It had rich color payoff with a smooth, creamy consistency. This one had a fair amount of fall out when applied, especially when blended with a fluffier brush, so you may want to apply prior to any base products. Once on, the color lasted for ten hours and had only slight fall out during wear. This shade is part of the Megan Naik set; as a heads up, the brand lists Amira as the burgundy shade and Lectra as the antique gold one, but I have both on myd esk, and the gold one is labeled Amira, and the burgundy one is labeled Lectra. YSL Avant Garde #4 (P) is lighter. Fyrinnae Lucky Charmed (P, $6.80) is less glittery, warmer. Urban Decay Oz #1 (LE, $18.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Spell #1 (LE, $18.00) is warmer, lighter. Maybelline Bold Gold (P, $6.99) is similar.Illamasqua Ore (P, $25.50) is less glittery. Giorgio Armani #26 (LE, $33.00) is darker, less golden. Make Up For Ever #11 (P, $23.00) is less glittery, brighter, more metallic. Inglot #433 (P, $6.00) is less glittery. See comparison swatches

ColourPop Hammered Super Shock Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “smoky olive with tons of gold glitter [with a Metallic finish].” It’s a muted, dark olive brown with subtle, warm undertones and gold micro-glitter over a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but this was one of the sheerer shades that I’ve tried so far. It builds up with a few layers, and it is very blendable. This shade lasted for ten hours with minimal fall out. Cle de Peau Stardust #2 (P) is lighter. MAC Psyche (LE, $15.00) is lighter, warmer. Gucci Beauty Fumé (Left) (P) is lighter. theBalm Kawabunga (LE, $16.00) is lighter, less glittery. Make Up For Ever ME624 Black Gold (P, $21.00) is darker. Make Up For Ever I328 Bronze (P, $21.00) is similar. Make Up For Ever D320 Golden Khaki (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Olive Blend #3 (LE) is lighter. theBalm #30 (P, $6.50) is less sparkly. Urban Decay Stash (LE, $18.00) is similar. MAC Gilt by Association (P, $21.00) is darker, more golden. MAC Fiction (DC, $15.00) is a smidgen lighter. bareMinerals Speaker Box (LE) is less glittery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

ColourPop Partridge Super Shock Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “saddle brown undertone with a green duochrome finish [with a Pearlized finish].” It’s a medium-dark, warm brown with reddish-orange undertones and a blue-teal sheen. I found the duochrome on this to be quite weak, even in the pan, and it doesn’t translate to much other than a medium-dark, warm brown. It had good pigmentation and lasted for ten hours. This shade is part of the Not a Box of Chocolates set, which is limited edition. Guerlain Petrouchka #5 (LE) doesn’t have a duochrome. Ardency Inn Peacock (P, $21.00) has a stronger duochrome. Kat Von D On the Road (P, $16.00) is warmer, lighter, stronger duochrome. Makeup Geek Insomnia (P, $6.99) has a stronger duochrome. Kat Von D Queen (LE) has a stronger duochrome. MAC Double Feature #5 #2 (LE, $15.00) is darker. MAC Fireside (LE, $21.00) is cooler-toned. MAC I’ve Got a Crush on You (LE, $32.50) has a stronger duochrome, cooler-toned.

Knew these were going to get your approval 😉 love the look you created.
I think there is a typo on your second paragraph “mostly opaque to opaque”.

I get the feeling that they really, really paid attention to detail and considered exactly who they were marketing to. Even the box they ship in is incredibly well-branded and reminds me of opening a Sugarpill or Beautylish box (there is also a handwritten note), how-to postcards, and they packed each shade like it was going around the world twice.

I was looking through Google for images of other swatches and I definitely agree – they put a lot of thought and detail into their packaging and marketing. So cute!

I ordered some Lippie Stix and a few eye shadows today based on your swatches. WOO!

I absolutely love it when affordable makeup is up to par with the high end stuff. I’m super impressed! I’m going to have to try these out!

Thank you, Christine for all your first looks and awesome reviews this year! I am always interested in your opinions and awesome product photos. These are beautiful, but probably not best for my 49 year old eyelids!

You might look out for their satin and pearl finishes. Something like Glitterati, I think, is so glittery that it can get thick on the lid, but the pearls have a more subdued sheen that’s very smoothing.

I love when products are cheap AND get an A rating! I love gold shadows so I need to order these! The eye look you created would look great with a matte red lip for Xmas!

I definitely have to place a ColourPop Cosmetics order at some point, maybe after the Holidays. The reviews on their products are just too good to ignore. Ad the price point makes it easier to give in as well. 🙂

I’m loving the first one, but I wish the last three were more true to pan when swatched. They’re a little too duochrome green for me.

I’d never heard of ColourPop before…I’m going to have to read about their story. Are they new?

Fringe, Amira,and Hammered will be coming home with me. I have a couple of the Dior Fusion shadows, and nice to see some similar products for only $5!

Beautiful! 😀 I’m really excited about these – the price is so impressive for the quality (I phrase it this way because I want to lay emphasis on the quality!).

Oh no! What shades did you try? Multiple reviews exist because we don’t all have the same experience, so it’s good to know what others have experienced.

The shades are pretty dupable for sure! Possibly the only aspect that is harder to dupe is the more metallic/sparkly nature, but you can get pretty close.

Amira and Hammered remind me of Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill #14. Do you think either of them are close at all, Christine?

Amira is a lot yellower – less of that murky olive color that #14 is. Hammered is more olive to me, but the color itself is closer, though the finish is way, way less shimmery.

Fringe, Amira and Hammered WILL be mine! Lol! But yes, definitely will. Christine, I really love the look that you created with these shades! I’m not too sure how it will translate on me, though , as I have green eyes with gold flecks near the pupil?

I still can’t believe how cheap these are. The quality looks amazing and I’m loving all of these colors. Guess it’s time for me to hop on the bandwagon
