Pretty Fly

ColourPop Pretty Fly Super Shock Shadow Set ($25.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a new, limited edition six-shade set that ranges from satin to sparkly cream eyeshadows. I liked the shades more individually than as a set, as I felt like the colors had a tendency to run together on the lid (though the look using these looked decent from afar). They were fairly pigmented and definitely long-wearing, consistent with my past experiences with the formula.

Force Behavior

Force Behavior is a light-medium gold with strong, warm undertones and a metallic finish. It was richly pigmented with a lightweight, thin consitsency that felt wet to the touch but applied like a powder eyeshadow. The eyeshadow applied evenly and blended out well on my bare lid. It lasted for 10 hours without fading or creasing and had very minimal 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).

Goodbye Butterfly

Goodbye Butterfly is a soft, light-medium coral with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single layer that was somewhat buildable, but I always felt like it was shy of full coverage. The color blended out nicely, though, and it worked well in the crease as a transition shade as the shimmer was subtle. It wore well for 10 hours without fading or creasing.

Three's a Cloud

Three’s a Cloud is a rich, medium orange with strong, warm gold undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly. I noticed that the finish did not appear quite as metallic as I expected on the lid, which some may ultimately prefer. The texture was wetter and had a touch more slip compared to most Super Shock Shadows (but more consistent with their metallic finish). This shade still looked the same as I had applied it after 10 hours of wear.

Flux with You

Flux with You is a light-medium gold with warm, orange undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque color payoff with a smooth, lightly emollient consistency that was spongy and thin but still yielded even coverage when applied with fingertips or a flat, synthetic brush. The color blended out easily along the edges without becoming patchy. It wore well for 10 hours without any creasing or fading.

Soul-cialize

Soul-cialize is a light-meduim lavender with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, spongy consistency that was thin without being clingy on the skin. Though it diffused, it had a tendency to sheer out too quickly and was hard to layer if I wanted to get more coverage later on. It lasted for 10 hours without fading or creasing.

Up in the Air

Up in the Air is a muted, dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. The eyeshadow was richly pigmented with a smooth consistency that wasn’t too thick or too thin, so it applied evenly and maintained its coverage level even as I worked along the edges to diffuse the color into my crease. It wore well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

I agree with you Christine, I think it’s much better to buy the shades individually rather than this set, as the shades do look fairly similar to each other. Better still is when you can make up your own set of shades. Lovely eye look Christine.

Three out of 6 appeal to me: Soul-cialize, Three’s A Cloud and Force Behavior. I would get them as singles possibly, but not the entire set. That deep plum looks lovely, too, but that’s a well repped shade in my stash.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
