ColourPop Belladonna Lilly Super Shock Shadow
ColourPop Belladonna Lilly Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Belladonna Lilly Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft pastel aqua.” It’s a bright, bluish aqua with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that was a little thin and a bit drier than some of the other ColourPop eyeshadows, though not actually dry. I found it hard to layer this one for opaque coverage, unfortunately, even with fingertips. On me, it lasted for ten hours. Dior Blue Lagoon (374) Eyeshadow #1 (LE, ) is lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever S208 Baby Blue (DC, $21.00) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Powerful Performance (LE, $17.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (80% similar).

ColourPop Flower Shop Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “vibrant blue green.” It’s a muted, medium-dark teal with subtle, green tones that runs neutral-to-cool in tone. The finish was more metallic with a blackened base (I think this is why it appeared more muted). The texture was very emollient and a little thin, so it spread well across the skin and blended out well, but it did have a tendency to sheer out. The color was still going strong after ten hours of wear. MAC Steamy (P, $17.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Spoiled (Clover) (LE, $16.00) is more muted (95% similar).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | ColourPop Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is more like a cream-powder hybrid than traditional cream eyeshadow. If you touch it, the product feels more like a sponge or stiff mousse, as there is light give, but it doesn’t have the same emollient or thickness of traditional cream products. The texture is thinner and is manipulated on the skin more like a powder. The brand says that using fingertips yields the greatest pigmentation, and if you prefer, synthetic brushes, but I find synthetic brushes to work well for applying and still getting great pigmentation out of the majority of shades (typically the very glittery shades are ones where fingertips really do improve them).

I already have MAC Steamy, but there’s something just a little different about Flowershop that makes me really, really want it!

For Colour Pop enthusiasts, how long do these shadows last in the pot before they need to be thrown out? That’s been the only thing holding me back from purchasing them. I don’t reach the end of very many shadows as it is!

πŸ™ I’m not sure which shades you have, as there are a few that are misses, but most of them have been blendable for me πŸ™ I use a flat, synthetic brush to apply them!

I scooped up Flower Shop, Wattles, and Luckfully when this collection was released, and LOVE them! After some of the recent releases (“Oh, more matte neutrals, how exciting..~*yawn*~….”), it feels great to be genuinely excited about ColourPop shadows again!

These are great. Hope they come in a set/box. It’s so easy to stow, and you can’t uncover / Z them, so a box is protective. I feel CP envy coming on. S and U aren’t getting rouge/platinum love this year. TMS syndrome. (Too much stash.). Good job, CP. Hope I don’t wait too long. S free shipping gets me every time!

Wattles is such a gorgeous shade! It doesn’t look like there are many decent dupes either – do you think Nars Kari is similar?

I got everything but Luckfully, I love the colors SOOO much!! They’re all gorgeous, pigmented, and get me so ready for spring/summer! My favorites are Flutes and Belladonna Lily, but they’re all awesome! I might pick up one more of every color and pick up Luckfully at that time. Another collection knocked out of the park!

OMG, Flower Shop is SO pretty!! I already have Hello Kitty Kawaii, but still want it! Kawaii came in a big shadow set, and I don’t like carrying that big LE set in my purse, but I can with Flower Shop.

Oh, how pretty these are! I most definitely want Flower Shop and Wattles, although that name “wattles” bugs me a bit…but still. It’s these or MAC Steamy and Girlie. Flutes is nice too, don’t think it would look like much on me though. I think it would just overly meld with my yellow undertones, so Idk.

I plan on getting the three blue shades, but I’m going to pass on Wattles and Flutes. I’ve got enough of those warm shades with the Peanut Butter & Jelly Palette.

Colourpop super shock shadows are one of my favorite things to see you review! I always get excited when I see they are on a post that day

I ordered Belladonna Lily and Wattles! And a few other items, but these two from this collection! I think wattles is GORGEOUS! I saw a look that Kathleen Lights did with it and Nar’s Kari (I already have that) so I want to recreate the look!

Colour Pop never fails to amaze me by hitting it out of the park nearly every time! I’m glad I have a dupe for Flower Shop, I love blues. I am swooning over Belladonna Lilly and Luckfully – want! Not that easy to get in the UK though. I like Wattles (don’t like the name though!) but I’d like to get Kari instead. Flutes is too warm for me, it’d look muddy on my skin tone.

I adore this line! I bought backups the shadows and a few other items& I rarely do that. After I got these I wasn’t so down about the NARS summer shadows not doing as well as I hoped. I think this is and the 2 Tom Ford summer palettes , Bicoastal & The Afternooner are my faves for summer so far. That says a lot for this little company and for the price I think. ?

I ordered 2 backups for Honeydude( saves on the MJB every day),Decanso, both versions ofTeaspoon, all the summer shadows, pretty Bonnes, &The Golden Child. I also finally grabbed Dopey and the lip liner. I love their lip liners. So I got 3 because I fly through them with the sharpening. Also, ordered the new Ulta Satins and brows to try. I wish I could figure out a way to do their Ultra mattes. I see all these people loving them and wonder wth!?! I have a few and feel like they suck the life out of my lips! Seriously, I’m so proud of CP. Seriously, I’m all about CP. You know this. I feel like I’ve watched them grow up! I’ll financially support them as long as they keep up the awesome work ! πŸ™‚
