I'm Wishing

ColourPop I’m Wishing Super Shock Shadow seemed to have a more transparent base with flecks of white, silver, and iridescent pink shimmer and micro-sparkle. I’d consider this more of a topper kind of shade or what one might reach for if they wanted a wash of iridescent sparkle all over the lid.

The texture was emollient to the touch, lightweight, and thin with good spreadability for an even layer of semi-sheer to medium coverage. It stayed on well for 10 hours with slight fallout over time.

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).

How Far I'll Go

ColourPop How Far I’ll Go Super Shock Shadow is a light-medium, golden peach with warmer undertones and a bright, metallic finish. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, which adhered evenly to my lid and blended out readily without losing its opacity.

The texture was lightweight, thin, and emollient to the touch but set to a more powder-like finish once it came into contact with my skin. It wore nicely for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

Beauty and the Beast

ColourPop Beauty and the Beast Super Shock Shadow is a light-medium, yellow gold with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly but seemed slightly more emollient than necessary, which is what resulted in the coverage being less-even than desired. It lasted well for 10 hours without fading or creasing.

Once Upon a Dream

ColourPop Once Upon a Dream Super Shock Shadow is a brighter, medium-dark pink-coral with lighter, warmer peach-gold shimmer and micro-sparkle over a metallic finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin with a fingertip or a flat, synthetic brush.

The texture was lightly emollient and wet to the touch but set to a powder-like finish once it came into contact with skin. It stayed on well for 10 hours without creasing on me.

Once Upon A Dream and How Far I’ll Go are the two true stars out of the four! Somebody, please hide my wallet… 🤦🏻‍♀️

Hmm… 🙁 I want these because I always loved Snow White, Cinderella, and Aurora. But none of these shades are things that I’d wear. Think I’m better off just streaming one of the movies when I clean this weekend for a burst of fun nostalgia…
