Roy G Biv

Colour Pop Roy G Biv Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warmer undertones and flecks of gold sparkle and softer micro-sparkle. The consistency was very emollient and had more slip than anticipated, so it was a bit harder to apply without sheering out a bit when blending it out. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that did not build up well, but it had enough sparkles to distract from the lesser coverage for those who aren’t die-hard for opacity. It lasted well for 10 hours without fading or creasing and had just a touch of fallout over time.

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).

Milky Way

Colour Pop Milky Way Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is an intense, bright fuchsia pink with cool undertones and cooler blue and fuchsia sparkle. The color payoff was fantastic with rich, opaque pigmentation delivered in one stroke. The texture was smooth, spongy, and lightly emollient without being prone to sheering out. It blended out well along the edges and still retained its vibrancy as it dried down. This shade stayed on well for 10 hours without fading or creasing.

REM

Colour Pop REM Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a soft, periwinkle blue with larger silver glitter over a sparkling, metallic base. It had medium coverage that was somewhat buildable, but it was better used as a brightening/layering shade than a standalone shade. There was enough sparkle in it that twinkled in person that the sheerness wasn’t as noticeable to the eye. The consistency was spongy, smooth, and blendable, though it did not seem quite as emollient as I would have expected based on the finish (didn’t seem to impact the performance any). It wore well for 10 hours without fading or creasing.

If nothing else, these shades have me inspired to get into my stash and use the dupes I have to put together a very dreamy, ethereal, yet bright pink and purple look. Been awhile since I did a look along those lines!

I’d love to see some great satin shades — Wattles, Truth and Puppy Love are some of my favorites. It seems like all of the new releases are either glitters or mattes. These are stunning, though.
