Mountain Lion

ColourPop Mountain Lion Super Shock Shadow ($6.00 for 0.07 oz.) has a pale white base with iridescent sparkle that shifted from pink to lavender.

  • Opaque pigmentation in one layer
  • Emollient to the touch, slightly more powder in feel
  • Blendable, easy to apply with fingertip or flat, firm brush
  • Turned powder-like once in contact with skin
  • Long-wearing formula on average (10 hours)

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).

3rd St

ColourPop 3rd St Super Shock Shadow ($6.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a pale, white gold with subtle, warmth undertones and sparkling shimmer that shifted from cooler to warmer, peachy gold. The base felt like it had more powder in it than the typical shade in this formula.

  • Opaque pigmentation in one layer
  • Emollient to the touch, slightly more powder in feel
  • Blendable, easy to apply with fingertip or flat, firm brush
  • Turned powder-like once in contact with skin
  • Long-wearing formula on average (10 hours)
