Moon Lit

Colour Pop Moon Lit Supernova Shadow ($6.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark, plummy purple with warmer undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had opaque coverage in a single pass of the applicator. The texture was lightweight, thin, and watery without being runny or too wet, so it dried down fast enough not to settle into lines but still gave some working time. It applied and blended fairly evenly, but it did emphasize my skin’s texture. This shade wore well for eight hours without fallout.

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.17 oz. - $41.18 Per Ounce

Per the brand, the formula is supposed to be a "super longwearing liquid shadow" that can be used as "an all over base color, a touch of glitter, or extreme metallic foil" with "high coverage" and "no fall out." They were quite pigmented, and they sheered out a bit as liquid and cream products do as you diffuse the edges. The liquid eyeshadows applied better with an exterior applicator, whether synthetic brushes or fingertips (though I'd recommend swiping product onto a clean palette or brush rather than directly onto fingertips!). The wand applicator makes it hard to apply with precision and worked best for all-over, one-and-done application.

The formula felt watery and thin, and it spread out decently, but there was a lot of fine and larger shimmer/sparkle without a strong base color, so they tended to look better and more even in person as the shimmers reflected light. They dry down fast enough that I could diffuse and blend edges but not so slow that it pulled into my creases as it dried down. I found that they tended to breakdown from teary or watery eyes, as I always noticed gaps or missing pieces where I might water more (inner and outer corners) but did not have that issue elsewhere (like the lid).

I think the more glittery shades worked best as something layered on top of other products and not as much on their own unless used as liner--they seem to do okay as a thin line, likely due to the fact that it's just a lot harder to see any imperfections when the line itself is thin. More metallic, less sparkly/glittery, shades seemed to work best alone (as they were quite pigmented, too, so they didn't lend themselves well to layering).

I didn't have much fallout over time but occasionally, there was a small chunk of product that dropped (rather than a few stray glitters). I also felt like the smoothest application was with fingertips as a brush seemed to make the product more likely to clump up or accentuate lid texture.

Firecracker

Colour Pop Firecracker Supernova Shadow ($6.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy copper with warm, orange undertones and a metallic sheen. This shade wasn’t as sparkly as others, so it had a smoother finish and didn’t emphasize my skin’s texture like a lot of the other shades did. It was still pigmented and had enough play time during the dry down to work but not so much time that it didn’t dry down well. I found it hard to apply evenly, though, even when I used it as an eyeliner. The only way I could make it work was patted over another eyeshadow with my fingertip. As an eyeliner, it lasted for six hours before flaking away in pieces.

Hard to Empress

Colour Pop Hard to Empress Supernova Shadow ($6.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a deep copper with warm, red undertones and flecks of copper sparkle. It had good pigmentation in a single stroke with a watery, thin base that could spread across a larger area without clumping up or becoming terribly patchy. What I did find was that as it dried down, it emphasized the texture of my skin and made it look rougher, though I think in person it’s not as obvious as in still photos since the light would reflect more in person. It dried down fast enough not to gather in my creases. It lasted for eight hours fairly well, but I did have more noticeable wear near my inner tearduct area.

Dragon

Colour Pop Dragon Supernova Shadow ($6.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a bright, golden copper with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had opaque coverage in a single layer, though as I worked with it and tried to diffuse and spread the product over an area, it seemed to sheer out and was not a buildable product due to how thick the texture appeared after it dried down. It did accentuate the texture of my skin, but it was very reflective and shiny in person that I barely noticed it. I found the formula tricky to work with, especially for covering larger areas by itself or as a base. On its own, it lasted for eight hours with minor fallout but no creasing.

Walk of Fame

Colour Pop Walk of Fame Supernova Shadow ($6.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium, coppery brown with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. The consistency was watery and thin, but it yielded nearly opaque coverage in a single pull of product. It diffused decently but had a tendency to make my lid look a lot more textured than it normally did. I could never seem to smooth it out enough that it was actually even, though. When I wore it as an eyeliner, it lasted for eight hours overall but there was some missing after six hours near my inner tearduct.

I really am glad that I stopped myself from buying these. I have all of the Black Moon Cosmetics liquid eyeshadows, the Wet n’ Wild Mermaid collection, and some of the Stila liquid glitter & metallic shadows, so I decided that these would be unnecessary and now seeing the review, I’m glad I listened to myself and didn’t succumb to FOMO.

I actually kinda like these! I only grabbed Walk of Fame and Moon Lit, and I didn’t try them as liner — though yeah, they were a huge pain to blend out (a smooth gradient with them is near-impossible). But, they *do* work well patted on top of a “normal” shadow just on the mobile lid, as a sparkly accent. Which, in that usage you maybe want to put them on them LAST — a couple of my more “watery” liquid eyeliner formulas wanted to feather and run like crazy when I applied them over these!

These are so pretty used as an eyeliner on the lower lashline! But, unfortunately, I have terrible luck with liquid eyeshadows. For whatever reason, they break up on me VERY easily. All that needs to happen is for some tearing of one of my eyes and it just gets wrecked!

I hope ColourPop comes out with some lighter shades in this formula, like champagne and pewter. I like shimmery/glittery liquid shadows (and CP’s price point!), but prefer more subtle shades for those formulas against my pale skin.

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!
