Race You

Colour Pop Race You Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and warmer gold flecks of sparkle. It had medium coverage, which did not build upt, and it was extremely difficult to apply this shade evenly and maintain any pop of color as seen in the pan. It just ended up looking more faded and patchy on the lid. The eyeshadow still wore well with slight fallout but no fading or creasing over a 10-hour period, though.

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.07 oz. - $71.43 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

Colour Pop Ripple Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark lavender with warm, pink undertones and a pearly sheen with slight iridescent sparkle. It had good color payoff with a smooth, lightly wet consistency that applied fairly evenly to bare skin and blended out well along the edges. This shade lasted for 10 hours with very little fallout over time.

Superfly

Colour Pop Superfly Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, but darker, purple base with shifting, blue-to-teal pearl. It was an interesting shade and certainly one I haven’t seen too often in products, but I wish it was more pigmented and had less slip as it was hard to build it up on its own. The eyeshadow worked best applied over other products, like eyeliner or another eyeshadow, to get the shift to become more pronounced without worrying about any unevenness from the lack of coverage of the shade on its own. By itself, the eyeshadow wore well for 10 hours on me without fading or creasing.

Buzzin

Colour Pop Buzzin Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark, pinky mauve with strong, warm undertones with flecks of gold sparkle over a matte finish. Since it has a cream formulation, the sparkles go on better and stay embedded in the eyeshadow on the lid than compared to a powder eyeshadow. However, I found that the sparkles would move and migrate if I tried to blend it out, so it ended up suffering the same fate as powder eyeshadows–pretty much just a matte eyeshadow in practice. It had opaque coverage, was easy to blend, and lasted well for 10 hours on me (with no signs of fading or creasing… no fallout as there was nothing left to fall out!).

Wow! These are surprising ratings for ColourPop shadow. What do you attribute it to? A quality control failure, or are these just difficult colors to make work?

I’m not sure why Race You had problems (the base color seemed bright enough), but it’s possible that without using non-eye safe pigments, maybe it just wasn’t possible in a cream formula? Superfly just seemed too wet and I have found that wetter Super Shocks can under-perform. Superfly is quite unique overall while Race You is not easily duped as it doesn’t have a ton of gold shimmer (if you want chocked full of gold shimmer, LOTS of options open up).

My favorites would have to be Superfly, Ripple and Buzzin. Again with the dupes, though…for Ripple: UD Spitfire or MAC Stars & Rockets, for Superfly: MAC Tilted. But for Buzzin? Even CP’s own T-cup just doesn’t quite look as interesting! Probably because I’d be applying Buzzin with my fingertip over most of my lid with some Ladybird in the inner lid blended out over in to the center mobile lid for a quick, easy summer look.

Even though Race You was a flop, you have still managed to make it look like a lovely confection. I’m kind of tempted to get it to use as a blush base, to pop Tarte’s Dollface over the top.

I like Ripple and Superfly so much! Superfly is so interesting. I think I see an order from Colour Pop in the near future.
I try to keep a low buy, but it’s not easy 🙂

I picked up Ripple when I ordered the blush palette, Just Dew It and I also got a couple of lippies. I haven’t received them yet and picked Ripple up based on seeing Tara (Tarababyz) wear it in her last haul video. She mentioned that it was a lavender with a strong teal reflect and that is the description on the site. I don’t see any mention of a teal reflect in your review, Christine. I am hoping you just didn’t get a good one or something because I was really getting it for the teal reflect. I already have MAC Stars and Rockets and don’t need another shade like that. The good news is that they aren’t very expensive so it isn’t a total waste but I have a feeling I am going to be disappointed when it gets here. I just checked their site and the order hasn’t even filled yet so won’t get it for awhile.

I was so disappointed with the shade Race You. It was very difficult to apply to the lid and the texture was very clumpy and wet. The D rating was actually nice considering I would’ve given it a big F (LOL!). I totally agree with you Christine in regards to Superfly and what a shame because it is a beautiful shade but the color payoff was not very good. I may try using it as a topper on another eyeshadow. As far as Race You, it has been tossed in my trash (glad it was only 5 bucks).

Hi Christine!
Yes, ColourPop is good about ingredients but depending on the brand, you may be the only one who lists them. I think Natasha’s Tropic palette comes to mind.
