ColourPop Sour Super Shock Shadow
ColourPop Sour Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Sour Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “light neon lime with satin finish.” It’s a brightened, yellowed chartreuse green with a pearly sheen. It had fairly good color coverage, but it was a shade that required two layers for full opacity. It layered and blended easily, and it wore well for ten hours. ColourPop Mermaid Kiss (P, $5.00) is darker. MAC Lisa’s Spikes (LE, $15.00) is darker. Make Up For Ever S336 Lime (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, less yellow. Make Up For Ever ME338 Acidic Green (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, greener. Make Up For Ever I340 Lime Green (P, $21.00) is brighter. Make Up For Ever I-30 (P, $21.00) is similar. NARS Tropical Princess #1 (LE, $24.00) is similar. Urban Decay Thrash (P) is less shimmery. MAC Chartreuse Bouquet (LE, $21.00) is similar. Kat Von D Birdcage (LE) is similar. CoverGirl Lime Light (310) (LE, $4.99) is similar. NARS Rated R #1 (P, $24.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

ColourPop Chipper Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone minty green … with multi-coloured glitter.” It’s a light-medium, sea foam green with lighter, aqua glitter. It had mostly opaque color coverage that applied smoothly and evenly with very little fall out during application. I had minor fall out during wear, but the color itself hadn’t faded or creased after ten hours. Urban Decay Dragon (LE, $18.00) is darker, warmer. Charlotte Tilbury The Rebel #2 (P) is darker, warmer. MAC Apple Squishee (LE, $15.00) is warmer. Make Up For Ever S312 Mint Green (P, $21.00) is less glittery, darker. Make Up For Ever I332 Meadow Green (P, $21.00) is slightly warmer. MAC Kelly (P, $15.00) is matte. Disney by Sephora Cinderelly (LE) is lighter, less sparkly. Disney by Sephora Fins (LE) is slightly darker, less sparkly. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

ColourPop Pop Rocks Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned cornflower blue … with multi-coloured glitter.” It’s a medium-dark blue with lighter silver and blue glitter. It swatched as semi-opaque, but it seemed to go on fully opaque when I applied it to the lid (I used a flat, synthetic brush) to the point where a little went further than anticipated. I didn’t notice any glitter fall out when I was blending this shade, but there were a few stray glittery bits after a few hours of wear. I didn’t have any creasing or fading at the ten-hour mark. Gucci Beauty Iconic Ottanio (P, $37.00) is much darker. Urban Decay Freeze (LE, $18.00) is more muted. Make Up For Ever ME232 Turquoise Blue (P, $21.00) is brighter. Shiseido Esmaralda (BL 620) (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker. Makeup Geek Poolside (P, $5.99) is warmer. Kat Von D Bukowski (LE) is similar. Sleek MakeUP Sunset #6 (P, $9.99) is cooler-toned. Disney by Sephora Diamond Sky (LE) is similar. Urban Decay Unhinged (LE, $18.00) is darker. Urban Decay Peace (P, $18.00) is lighter. NARS South Pacific #1 (P, $24.00) is similar. MAC Parrot (LE, $15.00) is slightly darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

ColourPop Lace Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “deep rich blue violet with a pearlized finish.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark violet purple with a blackened purple base and lighter purple shimmer and amethyst glitter. I thought this one was a bit trickier to get opaque color coverage with using a brush, as it tended to look darker and less vibrant when applied with a brush (the same brush I could use with the previous three without issue). The first time I swatched it, the color payoff was very intense, but every subsequent time, it was weaker. The texture was blendable, and it stayed on well without any fading or creasing over a ten-hour period. MAC Victorian Plum (LE, $19.50) is darker. Ardency Inn Royal (P, $21.00) is lighter. Sleek MakeUP Simbad’s Seas (LE, $9.99) is bluer. Sleek MakeUP Bliss in Barcelona (LE, $9.99) is more muted. Disney by Sephora Sea Witch (LE) is less shimmery. MAC Pink Union #2 (LE, $21.00) is lighter. Inglot #439 (P, $6.00) is warmer, less sparkly. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

I only use fingers if brushes don’t work, which is rare (I’ll mention if I had to use fingers in the review) and has only been a few shades. I don’t like using fingertips personally – mine are just too big – can’t get any precision. I use flat synthetic brushes or MAC 239s.

Usually after a day of a lot of blah products, I have to test something that has a better chance of being decent (or else it can just be a downer!), and I continued to be so impressed by how EASY it was to get rich, opaque color and blend everything together. It was easy. I didn’t struggle. It didn’t feel like a waste of time, energy, or money. It was such a relief to be reminded that good products exist. That they’re $5 is truly icing on the cake.

Sour is awesome. I must get it. I have Lace, and I absolutely love it. It’s so gorgeous on. The other two shades are pretty, but on the pastel side for me. I am really loving the eye look you did!

I am eagerly waiting for my Colorpop order to come in, Pop Rocks and Lace are among them and I am so excited to try them all out! Your eye look is stunning!

Hi! Are these a cream or.powder product? I love the look of them, but cream eye shadows are no match for my greasy, hooded eyes. (Even a cream eyeshafowyou gave an A to would crease after only four hours, even with primer and powder on top!)

Oh my gosh, I’m drooling so hard over these and your eye look! I’m on a no-buy right now (just until my trip to Iceland is paid off completely!) but I definitely want to try some Colour Pop shadows! And Lippies!

arg! i just placed an order the other day but Chipper is MUST HAVE!!! /cry

Christine, would you mind listing a few of your favorite synthetic brushes for use with cream shadows? ones with small brush heads since i have tiny lids?

i agree with everyone else that this is a particularly stunning look!

joy Avatar

thanks!

/blush i actually read this post before and picked up some of the Hakuhodo brushes while i was at IMATS LA. i actually love the J242 brush for dark colors in the outer v area. i completely forgot you mentioned it as a cream shadow brush because usually people recommend a flat top synthetic for it. may i ask how often you wash your Hakuhodo brushes?

Hello Christine! πŸ™‚

First of all, i absolutely LOVE the eye look you did here! it makes me think of all things magical and happy and pretty and i love that!! πŸ™‚

I just have a question about these shadows(forgive me if it’s been discussed before), do you think using them as liner (or possibly a liner topper) is going to be advisable? πŸ™‚ Like would it move around or transfer? πŸ™‚ I don’t do eye makeup well so i figured these might look nice as a pop of color parallel to the usual black liner πŸ™‚

Thank you so much!!! ^____^/
