ColourPop Mondays in Malibu Super Shock Shadow Set
ColourPop Mondays in Malibu Super Shock Shadow Set

ColourPop Mondays in Malibu Super Shock Shadow Set ($30.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a set of six cream eyeshadows that range from gilded bronze to warm green to red-brown. The set is limited edition, and the shades aren’t available individually. Overall, it was high-performer set of shades, and they worked well together. The set does run on on the shimmery side, so if you prefer more matte shades, then this might not be a good fit for you. I did notice that a few of these are similar to other shades from the brand, so you may want to check your stash.

Gecko is described as a “soft opalescent silvery green with pink duochrome finish.” It’s a muted, light gray with a flash green to pink duochrome, which is subtle on its own. It can get amplified when blended over a deeper shade or layered over a black base (as duochromes often play well with). I couldn’t tell you why, but I have found great difficulty in capturing in the duochrome finishes of ColourPop’s cream products, no matter what angles I’ve tried to twist my arm, the duochrome is hard to see in a photo. It’s a weaker duochrome in person, but it is visible in person, just not a strong one. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and blendable on the skin and lasted for ten hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Snakebite is described as a “mid-tone warm gold with an ultra-metallic finish.” It’s a brightened, light-medium golden copper with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It is extremely reflective and one of the more metallic shades I’ve tried from the brand. The color payoff was true-to-pan and intense, while the consistency applied with smooth, even coverage that blended well. It wore for ten hours without fading or creasing. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Sand Swoon is described as a “true pastel pink softly sprinkled with gold flecks in a satin luxe finish.” It’s a light-medium, warm-toned pink with a mostly matte finish and then a dusting of gold sparkle that sits more on top of it. It had good color payoff that went on smoothly and evenly. The texture is a smidgen drier compared to the more metallic shades like Snakebite, but it wasn’t dry. The color lasted for ten hours without fading or creasing, but it seemed like most of the glitter had dropped. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Prickly Pear is described as a “warm-toned plum with tons of gold and pink glitter in a metallic finish.” It’s a muted, pinky plum with warm, brown undertones and gold, mauve, and copper flecks of shimmer and larger gold and pink glitter. It had semi-opaque coverage from its base color with a healthy dose of glitter, which did have some fall out when you worked with it (particularly when blending out an edge — if I patted it on, I didn’t see fall out). The texture was a little more emollient, and this shade sheered out a bit more readily than others. It lasted for nine hours without fading or creasing, but there was a little bit of fall out over time. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Mirage is described as a “soft sage green with a champagne gold sheen in a pearlized finish.” It’s a medium, golden green with a pearly shimmer-sheen finish. The texture was lightly creamy with some slip and felt more emollient (or “wet” to the touch) as seems to be a trend with the pearlized/ultra-metallic finishes. It had nice pigmentation that was easy to blend and apply to the lid. It stayed put for ten hours with no fading or creasing on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Hot Tamale is described as a “reddish brown with soft copper sparkles in a satin luxe finish.” It’s a rich, dark brown with warm, red undertones and a soft dusting of copper and gold shimmer. It was intensely pigmented with a beautifully creamy, easily blended consistency that covered well and lasted for ten hours without fading or creasing. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Glad this got a great rating. I like Gecko & Mirage, but the others runs kind of warm for me. I totally LOVE the eye looks you did!

I am so torn on whether to get this. I normally don’t like super shimmery collections but when I first saw swatches of these colors on the ColourPop website, they immediately made me think of sea glass, which is just so summery and fun. Decisions decisions.

Absolutely stunning set!!! I especially love Snakebite, Prickly Pear, Mirage and Hot Tamale. As for Gecko, I already have MAC Vex, and Sand Swoon just doesn’t rock my boat at all. But still; 4 out of 6 is probably still worth it, no?

I’m waiting for my set to arrive so excited! What caught my attention was gecko, aunique and pretty shade. I’m also a sucker for sand swoon since it has gold glitter (like Too Soon). That’s what tipped me over the edge to buy rebound quad

I wish these were sold separately: I really, really, really, like Prickly Pear, Hot Tamale, and Mirage, but I don’t have any use for the others. 🙁

Wow, gorgeous! Those looks too! 10 dupes them 10 more.. 10 dupes then 10 more… #Restraint Funny this wasn’t posted Monday. 😛

Oh no! 🙁 If you let me know what you’re having trouble is, I’d be happy to rack my brain for tips 🙂

This is a really interesting set. I’m smitten with quite a few of them and then others, I question whether or not I would get any wear. Regardless, it’s a great collection and your eye looks are stunning with my fav being the first one pictured.

These look so pretty! Does anyone know any coupon codes I can use? The only one I found was THANKSBABE for $5 off. Looks like there’s also a promo for a free shadow for their first anniversary.

I don’t think I’ve seen anything more than their sign-up code for $5, but last I heard that wasn’t working any more!

Yay! So glad I got this set- well. It is ordered( knocking on wood,lol) ! Beautiful looks! C’mom Coconut..come back in stock ! I’m so inpatient with these things!

I swear Colour Pop releases the prettiest shades in these sets lol. I really like Prickly Pear and Hot Tamale. I would love if they were sold separately!

This is my favourite ColourPop set so far. 🙂 I find it really wearable even though I’m cool toned and often find summer eyeshadow collections just too warm. Mirage and Gecko are standouts and I have worn them every day since receiving my order!

That is awesome to hear, Sheb! 🙂 It has that more subdued warmth to it – I wonder if that’s why it’s working so well for you!

Hi Christine,
Since you mentioned that you are having trouble capturing the duo chrome effect of the products, may I suggest posting a gif of the swatch? Some girls on reddit have been posting gifs of swatches and those seem to show off the duo chrome effect pretty well.

This set looks so lovely! I have a huge ColourPop wish list & this has definitely been added. I just wish the Canadian dollar wasn’t so low right now!

These are all so consistently good, nice nice! So impressive! I think I may have to ask my US buddy’s help again, because I just don’t think I can go without ColourPop in my stash much longer, lol.

Where are these available? Haven’t seen them anywhere, including online. Would love to try some of their products! I’ve seen a lot of your swatches in several posts & the company really seems to put out great stuff at ridiculously affordable prices.

Hey Sandra,

It’s available at colourpop.com! The first link in the post usually will take you to where you can buy it, as well as under “Where to Buy.”

I have several Colour Pop eye-shadows and just ordered these, but I seem to have difficulty applying them. I’m using a Mac 217 and 239 brush and not having any luck. Can someone recommend a different brush or technique?

Using your fingertip to get it on the lid is what works best for me. I then blend with a brush once its on the lid, or I use synthetic brushes (my personal favorites are by Sigma) to add a small amount extra color or definition.

Hope this helps 🙂

I was browsing the swatch gallery for nude/neutral ColourPop shades and Sand Swoon sold me this set like instantly. I hadn’t put a lot of thought into getting this because the shades are more muted (although I loved Gecko) and didn’t appeal to me on sight as an assortment all together, but the more I look at it the more I think these will look great, especially Mirage. Aaaaand I just spent another $70 on ColourPop… OOPS. Thanks Christine :))))
