Fine Pearl

Fine Pearl is a light gold with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic finish and faint pink pearl. It had nearly opaque pigmentation, which was buildable on bare skin, that applied evenly and smoothly with a fingertip or a brush.

The texture was moderately emollient, lightweight, and thin and quick to dry down to a powder-like finish. It stayed on nicely for 10 hours without fading or creasing on 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).

Pledge Class

Pledge Class is a deep, coppery-gold with strong, warm undertones and flecks of lighter gold sparkle throughout. The texture was smooth, moderately creamy, and thin without being difficult to work with.

It had rich pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out nicely along the edges without creating fallout. This shade lasted well for 10 hours without creasing and had faint fallout after eight hours of wear. This version seemed to be less orange-based and have more sparkle in it than the last time I reviewed it.

Lovely shades. But, I need to be honest (and tougher) with myself and ask myself just how often would I actually use them. I have a ridiculous amount of neglected SSS’s!
