Monkey Business

Colour Pop Monkey Business Super Shock Pressed Pigments ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, medium orange-red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly over the skin and blended out fairly well along the edges, but I found that my fingertips were best when blending out the edges when using it as a blush. The consistency was a bit dense, smooth to the touch, and more velvety than cream-like (which is often true for the brand’s matte finishes in this formula). It wore well for 10 hours on me without fading or creasing.

Per the brand, this shade is “[n]ot intended for use in the immediate eye area.” This is a warning that often comes with neon and fuchsia/red shades where coloring ingredients are not approved by FDA for usage on the immediate eye area, but you’ll want to assess your own sensitivities and thresholds while also reading the ingredient list for yourself. It can be used on cheeks as a blush.

Ingredients

Cuteologist

Colour Pop Cuteologist Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a rich orange with warm, red undertones and flecks of gold sparkle over a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a smooth, plush consistency that was firmer and “stiffer” compared to many other Super Shocks, but it applied well with a brush to bare skin with even application and easy blending. It wore well for 10 hours and hadn’t faded or creased on me.

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).

Don't Leave

Colour Pop Don’t Leave Super Shock Pressed Pigments ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a deep fuchsia pink with cool undertones and a pearl finish. It was intensely pigmented with a smooth, lightly emollient consistency that felt wet to the touch but applied and blended out like a powder product on the skin. I had no trouble applying it with fingertips or brushes on cheeks or on my eyes. It lasted for 10 hours

Per the brand, this shade is “[n]ot intended for use in the immediate eye area.” This is a warning that often comes with neon and fuchsia/red shades where coloring ingredients are not approved by FDA for usage on the immediate eye area, but you’ll want to assess your own sensitivities and thresholds while also reading the ingredient list for yourself.

Issa

Colour Pop Issa Super Shock Pressed Pigments ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a deep purple with subtle, warm pink undertones and blue and purple pearl. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a smooth, creamy consistency that was lightly emollient but spongy and dense like other Super Shocks. As a blush, it did not sheer out as evenly as I would have liked, but with some patience, it could work. It functioned better as an eyeshadow, where it went on with good coverage, adhered evenly, and was blendable along the edges. It wore well for 10 hours on me without fading or creasing.

Per the brand, this shade is “[n]ot intended for use in the immediate eye area.” This is a warning that often comes with neon and fuchsia/red shades where coloring ingredients are not approved by FDA for usage on the immediate eye area, but you’ll want to assess your own sensitivities and thresholds while also reading the ingredient list for yourself. It can be used on cheeks as a blush.

Daddy

Colour Pop Daddy Super Shock Pressed Pigments ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark lavender with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a drier, firmer consistency that didn’t actually feel dried out, but it was a little hard to diffuse around the edges with a brush. It seemed to apply and blend out better with a fingertip (probably due to the warmth). It worked decently as a blush color and lasted for nine hours.

Per the brand, this shade is “[n]ot intended for use in the immediate eye area.” This is a warning that often comes with neon and fuchsia/red shades where coloring ingredients are not approved by FDA for usage on the immediate eye area, but you’ll want to assess your own sensitivities and thresholds while also reading the ingredient list for yourself.

I’m really getting back into my CP SSS lately and I’m so glad I ordered “Don’t Leave”! Just waiting for my package! Beautiful eye look as always, Christine!

OH Christine!!! Why did you? You look so good! And so, now I’m soooo wanting Issa (because I would really like to find some quality purples that won’t turn on me and aren’t patchy. The MUFE batch I just purchased on sell (mattes) just aren’t working well for me (I’ll have to pull up my shelves, that said you did warn us) and I just had a Sephora eye makeover with Subculture (and the deep purple in that palette was muddy!) So now, I’m going to hunt down all my purple hues (singles, palettes, wherever) and see what I can work with. And if Issa isn’t in the bunch (color payoff wise, while I may make my second Colour Pop purchase.) Really, nice festive eye! My style.

Have you tried using a combo off primers or maybe something more white-based (since you already have some that you aren’t happy with)? Another option might be to layer a powder over the primer and then apply the troublesome eyeshadow on top of that!

I just read this reply (strange I missed it) and thanks for the ideas on the primers and powder. I just purchased a few new lid primers (NYX nude and black eyeshadow base) and will pull out my ZOEVA and UD, and try again. 😉

Issa is sitting on fence. I’m trying not to buy Colourpop pots as I have a whole wack of the super shock shadows and I find the formula more difficult to work than my regular powder shadows and I seem to do best with them with my finger. Not exactly an accurate tool for my smallish eyes.

Gorgeous bright colours here though!

I have the same issue with these shadows. I want some brighter colors but I know I will not be able to work with these.

I hate the name, but love my pot of Daddy! Such a vivid, almost neon lavender.
Almost bought Issa at the same time, but just felt like it would wind up being a redundancy with my having Bae, plus Buxom Twilight Tryst. So, I didn’t.
Same for Cuteologist, I have Buxom It Crowd.

I don’t care if Daddy and Animal Business PERMANENTLY stain — I’m buying them both and slathering them all over these crusty eyelids! LOL
