State of Mind

ColourPop State of Mind Super Shock Shadow Duo ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) includes two shimmery shades: a cool lavender and a rich berry. Both shades were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing, and they performed consistently with the Super Shock Shadow formula for me.

Shining Star

Shining Star is a light-medium, bluish-lavender with strong, cool undertones and fine sparkle and bluish-shift. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation paired with a smooth, lightweight texture that felt emollient and almost wet to the touch initially but was more powder-like in performance and application. It stayed on nicely for 10 hours without fading or creasing n me.

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).

Fame Game

Fame Game is a deeper berry with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture was moderately emollient, lightweight, and thin, and it turned to a powder-like feel once it was placed on my lid. It had opaque color coverage that applied evenly and lasted well for 10 hours on me.

Hi Christine, thank you for your amazing posts as always! Been a while since I commented because I work in the hospitals and we have been struggling with COVID. I read your posts every day because they are a break in my usual day! May I please ask, I reviewed all of your posted dupes but was wondering if you could please assist. I love a lot of the ColourPop Super Shock Shades but the formula does not have the same longevity as a powder of course. Do you have any suggestions for a combo of colours (indie or mainstream) that could dupe Shining Star please?

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!
