Six in the City

Colour Pop Six in the City Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle over a mostly matte finish. The texture was smooth, sponge-like, and a bit drier than most Super Shock Shadows, and I did find the base was more prone to emphasizing my lid texture due to that drier, almost more clay-like feel. It applied better with fingertips than brushes, and the latter I am typically able to use with most Super Shock Shadows. It wore well for nine hours with some fallout over time.

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).

Colour Pop 6AM Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, medium coral-orange with warm undertones and flecks of soft orange sparkle. The base seemed more matte, which resulted in a drier consistency that was harder to apply evenly as the sparkles seemed to break up the base and give a patchy appearance when applied with a brush. I was only able to smooth and even out the coverage if I pressed my fingertip down with moderate pressure. It had opaque pigmentation that stayed on well for nine hours with slight fallout over time.

Quick Six

Colour Pop Quick Six Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a rich, coppery red with warm undertones and flecks of gold and pink. The consistency was dense, spongy, and drier to the touch (but not actually stiff/dry) compared to some of the more shimmery Super Shock Shadows. It had opaque pigmentaiton that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out easily along the edge, though there were some sparkles that dropped off the lid during blending. It wore well for 10 hours on me without fading or creasing.

Runnin' Thru the Six

Colour Pop Runnin’ Thru the Six Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark, bluish-teal with faint pearl over a matte finish. It looked mostly matte in practice. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, so I had no trouble getting opaque coverage in a single layer but was still able to diffuse and blend along the edges like a powder eyeshadow. It showed no signs of fading or creasing after 10 hours of wear.

Sixth Sense

Colour Pop Sixth Sense Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium gold with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied somewhat evenly on bare skin, but it was harder to build up due to the more emollient quality of the texture. It lasted well for 10 hours with slight fall out over time.

The Six

Colour Pop The Six Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a deep, bronzy gold with warm, rusty undertones and a golden sheen. It was like a mix of brown, gold, and copper altogether, which made it harder to dupe compared to the other shades launched alongside it. The consistency was smooth, lightly emollient but not too slippery, which made it easy to apply and blend out while still yielding rich color payoff in a single layer. This shade stayed on well for 10 hours without creasing or fading.

Three of these caught my eye, including one I never knew beforehand that I would love so much: The Six! It, plus Runnin’ Thru The Six and Get Six have me hoping CP will restock these.

I love how you used 6am, Christine. Gonna try out that look with this one orange shadow I have that I never know how to use lol

The six looks so pretty and rich

I think I want all of these my favorite is Ouick Six.The only dupe I have for that one is the Huda Beauty eyeshadows. They are beautiful and all of the perform extremely well for the price.

These are SO GOOD! ColourPop really is the greatest eyeshadow company (and they prove how overpriced most brands are lol).

I don’t care for the pink and red ones (though they are pretty for those who can wear those colors) but the rest are outstanding, unique and wearable for most I think.
