On Set

ColourPop On Set Super Shock Shadow ($6.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a vivid, medium-dark blue-teal with strong, cool undertones and warmer, pale gold sparkle over a metallic finish. The eyeshadow had a smooth, lightly creamy texture that wasn’t too emollient, so it worked well with a brush or a fingertip. It had opaque pigmentation that lasted for over 10 hours without creasing or fading.

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).

Ripple

ColourPop Ripple Super Shock Shadow ($6.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a brighter, light-medium purple with warmer pink undertones and cooler violet pearl throughout. It had mostly opaque, buildable color coverage paired with a smooth, lightly emollient texture that wasn’t quite as easy to pick up initially as anticipated. The product applied evenly and blended out without difficulty, though. It wore well for over 10 hours without creasing or fading.

Pug Life

ColourPop Pug Life Super Shock Shadow ($6.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark, raspberry pink with subtle, cool undertones and a metallic finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and emollient enough to blend out well but not slide around before drying down to a powder-like finish. It stayed on well for over 10 hours without creasing or fading.

Rose Garden

ColourPop Rose Garden Super Shock Shadow ($6.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a darker lavender with subtle, warmer pink undertones and cooler, violet micro-sparkle. It had mostly opaque color payoff, but the texture wasn’t as smooth or as easy to apply and even out as most of the shades in this formula have been for me. I would highly recommend using this with a fingertip (most shades work with a brush or fingertips). It lasted for over 10 hours without creasing or fading.
