Miss and Bliss

ColourPop Miss and Bliss Super Shock Shadow Duo ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) contains a warmer peach and a mid-tone, olive green, both with a more metallic/sparkling finish. When I layered Bliss (the green) over Miss (the peach), it created a very warm-toned, faded green–the two looked more like a mix than one unified color, though not really a duochrome or anything like that.

Miss

Miss is a medium peach with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had opaque pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was easy to apply and blend out with fingertips or brushes. The eyeshadow lasted nicely for 10 hours without budging at all.

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).

Bliss

Bliss is a medium, olive green with warmer undertones and chunky, gold glitter. It had medium, more buildable coverage paired with a smooth, lightly creamy and almost “wet” (to the touch) texture. It applied best using fingertips for maximum coverage, as I found a brush was more prone to pushing around the color on the lid, which made it appear patchy. The color stayed on well for 10 hours but had slight fallout over time.

Above the Clouds

ColourPop Above the Clouds Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium gold with a gold-to-green shift in its metallic finish. It had excellent pigmentation, but it had a creamier, more emollient texture, which made it a little more prone to sliding around on my lid so I had to be careful to press and pat it into place (whether using a fingertip or a brush), then blend when it was more set. It wore well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

Floating

Floating Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright popo of yellow with a sparkling finish. It had rich color payoff paired with a smooth, emollient texture that was creamy enough to sit well on my skin and blend out easily along the edges, but it didn’t slide around. It lasted well for 10 hours without fading or creasing.

In Axis Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark copper with warm, orange undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was harder to build up without being very careful to press and pat the second layer on after it had time to set/dry down. It was creamy but wetter and felt rather slippery, which I expect is part of why it was less buildable and also why it appeared a little patchy when initially applied. Once on, it stayed on well for 10 hours without fading or creasing.
