Pier Pressure

ColourPop Pier Pressure Super Shock Shadow Duo ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a cream eyeshadow duo designed to complement the Coast to Coral palette. The formula is cream-to-powder, so both shades felt creamier and more emollient initially but quickly turned to a powder-like product once they came into contact with skin. They were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing and performed consistently with the Super Shock Shadow formula.

Sail Away

Sail Away is a light peach base with warmer, more orange undertones with flecks of lighter gold and pink sparkle throughout. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation with a moderately emollient texture that was lightweight, thin, and blendable without becoming patchy on my skin. The formula was quick to dry down and stayed on well for 10 hours without fading or fallout.

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).

In Axis

In Axis is a deeper copper with warm, brownish undertones and an intense, metallic finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, emollient texture that felt wet to the touch but was quick to turn to a more powder-like feel as soon as it came into contact with my skin. The product applied well to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges. This shade lasted well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

What a nice pairing of shades! If I didn’t have so many dupes and close dupes, I’d buy this. Apparently, I’m a sucker for copper eyeshadow, who knew? 🤣
