Heigh-Ho

ColourPop Heigh-Ho Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a sparkling white with subtle, warm undertones and cooler, blue and violet sparkle. It had medium coverage, which was somewhat buildable, but it was more of a brightening or layering shade–it was quite sparkly, so I didn’t notice the sheerness when used on the lid or inner tearduct. The texture was plush, lightly creamy, and noticeably sparkly (so it wasn’t perfectly smooth). It wore well for nine hours with very little fallout and no creasing or fading.

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).

Under the Sea

ColourPop Under the Sea Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium green with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that did not build up well, but it applied surprisingly evenly for the color and coverage level. The consistency felt smooth, spongy and emollient without being too slippery. The eyeshadow adhered well to my lid and lasted for 10 hours without fading or creasing.

Too pretty for me not to, right? ?
I could see both working very nicely with that Huda Emerald Palette as well as the palette from the collection. ?

I just received Heigh-Ho and it smells SOOO bad and super strong (like some weird mix of alcohol/clay/crayon and usually I’m not bothered by regular makeup scents nor am I sensitive to them)… On top of my eyeshadow being damaged when it finally got here. 🙁 I don’t have any other Super Shock Shadows so I don’t have anything to compare it to… Is it the normal scent of Colourpop shadows or is it worth contacting their CS about it? 🙂

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
