Just Fur Fun

ColourPop Just For Fun Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium pink with soft, yellow undertones and gold glitter. It had semi-opaque coverage, which was somewhat buildable but never looked fully opaque. It had a smooth, lightly wet texture that blended out easily, while the flecks of glitter seemed flatter and adhered better to the skin. The eyeshadow wore well for ten hours without creasing and had just a touch of fallout.

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.07 oz. - $71.43 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).

Koosh

ColourPop Koosh Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium, golden taupe with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good color coverage with a very smooth, noticeably emollient (but not too wet) texture that didn’t sheer out immediately but remained blendable. The color was still going strong after nine hours of wear.

Sleigh

ColourPop Sleigh Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a dirty, medium olive green with flecks of gold sparkle. It had semi-sheer coverage and felt wetter to the touch. This shade seemed prone to sheering out and applying unevenly, as some of the sparkle/glitter would overlap. I didn’t have any real wear issues, as what I applied looked good ten hours later, and there were only a few specks of fallout.

Tinsel

ColourPop Tinsel Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with flecks of silver sparkle. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a smooth, blendable texture that wasn’t too thin or too thick and spread well across the lid without losing intensity. The color wore well for ten hours with minimal fallout.

Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Just my two cents about the new UI – for posts like this one where you review multiple products in the same posts. Would it be possible to put all the names or photos of what you’re reviewing at the top of the post? From the homepage, I can’t tell which or how many shades you’re reviewing until I click “continue reading.” Like for this one I can see you’ve reviewed “Just Fur Fun” but I have to click through to even know that you also reviewed “Koosh,” “Tinsel,” and “Sleigh,” which unfortunately means I end up missing a lot of your reviews.

I REALLY love the new slideshow of photos that you see at the top of the post, but instead of a slideshow of just all the photos for one shade I think it would be more useful to have at least one photo of each product in the review. Hope that makes sense.

Either way, thank you for everything you do! 🙂

Hi Alyssa,

When it’s feasible to include in the title, I do, but if it gets too long, it becomes 4-8 line title on mobile (half the screen!) so I avoid putting names in the title if it’s more than a few 🙂

I’m not sure what is possible, because the way it works is each review is inserted based on code – I can’t move the Glossovers from place to place, because the slideshow, review, dupes, Glossover are set-up to show and be ordered specifically for reviews. I will look into it, though!

Tinsel, Koosh and Just Fur Fun have made their way on my to-get list!!! Sleigh seems quite different from its previous iteration, it would seem?

I have Koosh (pretty, good quality but dupe-able) and Sleigh (have only swatched on hands, but mine is much smoother, more pigmented, and more cool gold with olive undertone) . I think I will need to go back for Just Fur Fun and Tinsel -those look so pretty

I’m happy to say, my Sleigh is much better – it’s slightly more pigmented that my Tinsel, which I need to layer to get complete opacity, and isn’t at all patchy. Might be a quality control issue at CP?

I have all four shades and I have to say, I love them all… And they last SO WELL.

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!
