On Da Fly

Colour Pop On Da Fly Super Shock Trio ($15.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a new, presumably limited edition trio that features two Super Shock Shadows and one Super Shock Glitter (which does contain plastic glitter and is not for use on the eyes). The two eyeshadows were pigmented and long-wearing, while the glitter performed in line with expectations: medium “coverage” in a translucent base that spread fairly well and had light fallout overall.

Pledge Class

Pledge Class is a light-medium brown with warm, orange undertones and flecks of gold sparkle. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with just a touch of fallout. The consistency felt emollient, though it appeared dried out when I opened it as the lid wasn’t screwed on properly. The color stayed on nicely for 10 hours with slight fallout over time but no creasing.

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).

Helio Goodbye

Helio Goodbye is a medium-dark copper with moderate, warm brownish undertones and a pearly sheen with faint sparkle over the top. The texture was smooth, emollient without being too wet, and easy to apply and blend out along the edges. It was richly pigmented and wore well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

Get Lost

Get Lost has a translucent base with fine, white-to-gold shifting glitter, small, hexagon-shaped glitter, and very large, multi-colored hexagon-shaped glitter. The larger pieces did not spread as evenly and had a tendency to flip or fallout when applied. The finer glitter particles distributed more evenly for medium “coverage.” The texture looked drier as the cap didn’t seem as tightly-screwed on as I’d expect, but it didn’t feel dried out to the touch. It had a noticeably glittery texture with moderate slip and some wetness. There was light migration/fallout over an eight-hour period.

Not sure I understand the difference between super shock glitter and pressed glitter, unless it’s obvious. Ulta’s holiday packing crew needs more training. Or respect. Or more realistic quotas. Did I just think Amazon again?

I’m sure there are ingredient differences, but in terms of actual feel and application, very little. Possibly the Super Shock formula is less slippery!

OMG – what is happening to your products? Ulta needs to pack them more securely, that is really bad.
As to the eyeshadows themselves, I think the first two shades are far too similar to each other to be in a set and as for the pressed glitter number – that’s a no-no.
Thankyou for the review Christine.

Ulta doesn’t know how to package things when you order online. I stopped buying online because every order always has at least one thing that is broken in some way.

I usually do two-day shipping, which seems to work out better; it’s more like the one-off order has something broken vs. almost every order (for ground).

I know Christine purchased her shadows at Ulta, but I recently purchased a pallet from CP and when it came out of the package it was ridiculously dusty and when I opened it, some colors had cracks and some colors had looked like they had been touched…it was so gross!!! I purchased a 2nd pallet at the same time and it came perfectly in tact. This was my first purchase from CP so I contacted CS (by email) and was told…”Just take a warm cloth and dust it off” and as of now they won’t send me a new pallet. I’m so disappointed and torn. I don’t want to support a biz that doesn’t take care of their customers, but at the same time banning them only despite’s me.

I brought this up because although Ulta shouldn’t of shelved it, CP shouldn’t have sent like that…wouldn’t it be CP’s quality control to make sure lids are secure before shipping orders…whether it’s a big box store or a little customer like me, quality control is key…Idk…COULD ANYONE PLEASE GIVE ME THEIR THOUGHTS/ADVICE?

I haven’t had to use ColourPop CS often, but I didn’t have any issues the few times I reached out, but it’s been a year or longer since purchasing directly (other than for some empty palettes, I think). I’d just keep pressing them if you are unhappy with the response!
