Super Hard Core

ColourPop Super Hard Core Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light, buttery yellow with warm undertones and a sparkling, pearly sheen. It had opaque color payoff that applied nicely to bare skin–even, smooth, and never patchy. The texture was smooth, blendable, and just emollient enough to feel like a cream going on but it dried down to a powder-like finish that lasted all day (over ten hours).

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).

Reversible

ColourPop Reversible Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium, bronzy brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a more emollient, slightly wet-to-the-touch texture. I find that the texture seems to give it that really pearlized finish, but it tends to make the eyeshadow more prone to sheering out a bit more compared to their other shades. It’s still possible to get opaque coverage, but I usually have to touch up the edges just a bit. Once on, the eyeshadow stayed put for ten hours.

One by One

ColourPop One by One Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium orange with warm undertones and a frosted shimmer-sheen finish. It was richly pigmented and applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The consistency was sponge-like, creamy but not thick, and easy to blend out on the lid without losing its intensity. The eyeshadow was still going strong after ten hours of wear.

Going Rogue

ColourPop Going Rogue Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a soft, golden beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had opaque color coverage paired with a smooth, spongy texture that was thin and lightweight on the lid but still very pigmented. This would be a nice inner tearduct highlighter or all-over wash of color for some skin tones. It wore well for ten hours without fading or creasing on me.

Flipper

ColourPop Flipper Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright pop of orange with warm undertones and flecks of sparkle. It had excellent pigmentation with a smooth, lightly emollient consistency that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely. The texture dried down to a powder-like finish that lasted for over ten hours with very minimal fallout.

Wow, nice! All A ratings. I think most of their pressed powder shadows are decent, but their traditional hybrid cream formula seem to have more standouts.

That’s accurate, IMO – the cream formula often does shades that aren’t done well or at all in powder form, though ColourPop has put out some neat bright, matte shades this launch that actually work well.

All of them did great, thank goodness. Especially since I ordered the Phased Out quad that has Going Rogue, One By One and Flipper in it with a darker salmon matte included. It could well be the softest summery looking eye I’ve done in ages!

I like them all, but Flipper is the one that really caught my eye. My wishlist grew a bit more. 🙂

Excellent job, CP. The goofs by CP seem to be quite rare. They are setting themselves a high bar and a massive production schedule, and still they usually hit the mark. I think this Co is incredible, esp. for the price. We can indulge our Vice without denting the wallet excessively. We can fill in the holes in stash. We can get colors we seldom would wear. They have a dupe for virtually everything. Course, you do have to catch the window…but something like it will soon be around again. I call it the guilt free makeup line. Mood booster. And then you do something creative with the little pots. Never leave us, CP. Being an oldie, not sure CP would have hit my radar without C and T. Usually the young’uns at night recognize a lip shade, or ask about one. I say ColourPop.com as often as I say thank you. Let’s not take these guys for granted. (Got dupes for all these, but can probably do my it’s-only-an-80% rationalization.) Flipper. Yes.

Thing I returned the peach Physians Formula blush I’m very fair skin/cool and even on me hardly showed up color is rather flat boring while the pink is much better. On Colourpop I have ordered a few but find them rather patchy and have to go over with pinkie or q-tip to even out/blend although I love the colors. But hmmm on the quality? WetnWild are better.
