Study Buddy

Colour Pop Study Buddy Super Shock Shadow Set ($25.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a new, limited edition set of six cream eyeshadows ranging from a shiny, champagne gold to a deep plum. All six shades were shimmery or sparkly, so they’ll pair best with other satin and matte eyeshadows found in one’s stash than worn altogether (which can be a bit trickier!). The eyeshadows had mostly opaque to opaque color coverage, were blendable, and lasted well for 10 hours or longer. There were a couple of shades with more glitter content that had slight fallout over time but not enough to be concerning.

Pledge Class

Pledge Class is a muted, orange-brown with warm undertones and chunky, gold glitter. It had excellent color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin without fallout during the initial lay down of color, though the more I worked along the edges to diffuse them, the more the sparkles moved around. They seemed to be a flatter, more flecky glitter, which I’ve found to be an indicator of better-adhering glitter. The texture was dense, slightly emollient and fairly easy to work with on bare skin. It wore well for 10 hours with slight fallout over time but no fading or creasing.

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).

Here We Go Again

Here We Go Again is a rich, medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, while the texture felt creamy and moderately emollient, though it didn’t have too much slip as I was able to apply it evenly to bare skin without losing intensity. It stayed on well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

All In

All In is a rich plum with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had opaque color coverage with a smooth, lightly emollient consistency that applied evenly to bare skin. The eyeshadow dried down to a powder-like finish within a few seconds of applying, but it remained blendable in its powder form. It wore well for over 10 hours with very minimal fallout over time but no creasing or fading.

Like a Shot

Like a Shot is a soft, champagne gold with warm undertones and a shiny, metallic finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single pass, while the consistency felt wet to the touch–smooth, emollient, and lightly creamy. The eyeshadow adhered evenly to bare skin, remained blendable along the edges, and stayed on nicely for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

Let Me Pass

Let Me Pass is a medium-dark, coppery orange with warm undertones and flecks of gold and copper sparkle. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, but the texture was a bit chunkier and felt a touch drier than I expected based on the finish. It applied fairly evenly, but it had a tendency to have some fallout as I blended the edges. It lasted well for 10 hours with slight fallout over time but no fading or creasing.

Honor Roll

Honor Roll is a medium-dark brown with warm, coppery undertones and flecks of gold sparkle over a satin finish. It was richly pigmented and applied evenly to bare skin with good adhesion but remained blendable along the edges. The texture was dense, firm but not unyielding, and it had a touch of creaminess but wasn’t as “wet” to the touch as the more metallic shades in the formula. It wore well for over 10 hours without fading or creasing on me, and it did not seem to have fallout over time, though there was a bit of fallout if I blended it more vigorously during application.

Definitely a solid set of shades that go very well together and have a strong autumn feel to them! I don’t believe I would need the entire set, though. 🤔

Very nice set. A lot of varied looks to be had. It does touch on how often CP dupes itself, even with existing shades…but usually different formulas. What blew me away was how often the CZp was higher rated than the Viseart dupe.

I like the box that they are in, all my Super Shock shadows are singles I have to hunt for. I have all of these colors already. Nice set for a great price. Love how ColourPop offers great quality for a reasonable price!

I bought this when I picked up the glorious Foxes (thanks to your review). I love it so much.

There’s just something about this formula that makes ‘mundane’ colors so interesting and fun. The shade is my favorite, it looks like milk chocolate!
