ColourPop Spring 2018 Super Shock Shadows Reviews, Photos, Swatches (Part 2)

Special Delivery

Colour Pop Special Delivery Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium, minty green with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied somewhat evenly to the lid, but it seemed like it would function better as a layering shade for added shimmer and sparkle. The texture felt wet to the touch but wasn’t too slippery, and it set to a power-like finish that wore well all day long and had almost no fallout after 10 hours of wear.

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).

Snapdragon

Colour Pop Snap Dragon Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium teal with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a velvety, dense consistency that was thin on the lid but still adhered evenly and blended out fairly easily along the edges. On me, it wore well for 10 hours without fading or creasing.

Zoomship

Colour Pop Zoomship Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a vibrant, medium blue with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented and had a smooth, velvety texture that was sponge-like but had the blendability of a cream while retaining the pigmentation and ease of use of a powder eyeshadow. This shade lasted for 10 hours on me without fading or creasing.

Frog

Colour Pop Frog Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, peachy pink with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish that was multi-colored. The texture felt wet to the touch, very creamy without being thick or heavy, so it was easy to pat onto the lid for a sheer wash of shimmer or layered on top of another eyeshadow for a sparkling effect. It had medium coverage, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage but was not opaque on its own. The eyeshadow stayed on well for nine hours with slight fallout over time.

Wittle

Colour Pop Wittle Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium plum with warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had more of a pearlized finish with flecks of sparkle on top. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, and the color applied evenly and smoothly over bare lids. The consistency was smooth, lightly emollient, and easy to work with along the edges. It wore well for 10 hours without fading or creasing.

No Promises

Colour Pop No Promises Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a dark copper with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly to the lid and blended out easily along the edges for a smooth gradient that sat flatteringly on the skin. On me, it stayed on well for 10 hours without fading or creasing.

Frog is a color I’ve been waiting for. Peach/beige with mega sparkle. All dupes seem to be past LEs or within larger palettes. But maybe I would go for the dupe in the Jouer Skinny Dip palette…

Having bought Frog and gotten opportunities to use it, I am absolutely in love with how multidimensional and colorful the sparkles look while worn! Snapdragon and Zoomship just went on my WL! (But I do have KVD Pastel Goth…?)

These are all so pretty! 🙂 I love the brights. It’s good to know CP is hearing that we’re sick of all warm neutrals and want more colors from them. The brights, glitters, and metallics is why I first started buying them.

Love them all, especially attracted to the blues after the long drought with only neutrals.
Also, does anyone know where to get real snapdragons in that gorgeous color???.

I’ve been eyeing Frog online for awhile and you just sold me on it and Wittle. I’m surprised I don’t have any dupes for either.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
