ColourPop Super Shock Shadows
ColourPop Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Supermodel Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft golden ivory.” It’s a brightening, light-medium golden beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nice pigmentation with a soft, blendable, and smooth texture that applied easily to the lid and didn’t emphasize the skin’s natural texture. It was still going strong after ten hours of wear.

ColourPop I Spy Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft yellow peach.” It’s a light-medium orange with warm, yellow undertones and a satin sheen. It had good pigmentation, but the texture was drier and more challenging to apply as the color would turn patchy and just sit on the lid very unevenly. I couldn’t get it to look as smooth on the lid as it did on the skin, even when patting it on with fingertips. KVD Beauty Ludwin (PiP, ) is less shimmery (95% similar).

ColourPop Boy Band Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “intense red copper.” It’s a muted, medium-dark bronzy brown with warm, yellow-orange undertones and pink and gold shimmer. The consistency is soft, smooth, and extremely blendable on the lid without losing its intensity. It had fantastic color payoff and was fully intact after ten hours of wear. MAC Gravitational (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Petrouchka #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). NARS Isolde #2 (DC, $25.00) is cooler (90% similar).

ColourPop Stereo Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “blackened burgundy with copper and pink violet duo chrome glitter.” It’s a deepened, burgundy-brown with warm undertones and lighter gold and plum sparkle. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a more emollient, thin consistency compared the average ColourPop eyeshadow. It applied better with fingertips or patted on in two to three layers for truer-to-pan intensity in practice. It wore well for ten hours with minimal fall out but no fading or creasing. Too Faced Pop (PiP, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Stila Deep Plum (LE, $18.00) is cooler (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Twilight (LE, ) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar).

ColourPop Central Perk Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “dirty maroon.” It’s a medium-dark burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a drier consistency compared to other shades, though it wasn’t actually dry. The texture was smooth, squishy as you’d expect, but it could been more emollient to make blending easier. I liked how it applied with some effort, but just know that it takes some patience to work with. It wore for a full ten hours without fading or creasing.

i’m super drawn to boy band . not only does it have an awesome rating , but i love the name as well !

i’m an *nsync fan for life. ^–^

love the sephora liner you paired with this look , btw !

Nancy T Avatar

Stereo and Supermodel! Gorgeous shades. As for Central Perk, I think I’d rather have MAC Deep Damson instead.
P. S. Love that eye look you put together using these together with the bright blue, it looks great! Now that I took the jump and bought My Boyfriend’s Jeans, I really love how it strangely brightens up, not dulls my weird eye color!

Katherine T. Avatar

I want Supermodel! It would make a great base for my powder shadows. I also love how it’s a dupe for more expensive shadows. And Central Perk looks like a marsala color

Nicole Avatar

Fantastic eye look! I was hesitant about these when you showed the preview. Now, I want it all! I am espescially loving Boy band,Stereo, and Central park out of this set. I. Love eye spy too. I wonder if primer would help the patchiness do you think?

I’ve run into a few of the CP mattes that have that issue.. using a fluffy brush and buffing them on in two or three light layers seems to help. I kind of swirl the tip of the brush in the product in a circle and it gives a nice amount of product… tapping or patting doesn’t work too well. For use on the lid spongetip applicators are my go to.

Listen…you’re going to have to stop! I said that I was going to save my coins. School is starting, we’re scouting out contractors for the house, and I need to save as much as possible. smh I said no more makeup and despite the low cost I will not cave in. ? My first ColourPop order should be here Monday… ? and I need these, too.

Kat Avatar

I thought I’d have a million dupes for Boy Band, but I actually don’t have any! It’s definitely going on my list. Stereo’s really cool too, and while I have one dupe (Black Forest Truffle from the TF Chocolate Bar) it’s not very good so I never use it. Excited to see reviews for the rest of the collection!

Alecto Avatar

The more I look, the more I think I can’t justify I Spy, since it’s so close in color to Just A Sip. Stereo, on the other hand, looks amazing, and I may have to get it. Is it just me or does Stereo look like the pink-shimmered eyeshadow equivalent of Piaf?

Helene Avatar

I generally browse very quickly when you review products I cant get, but this time it was love at first sight for me when I saw the swatch of Stereo. It may not be the best of the Colour Pop eyeshadows, but it is so pretty.
I must check Too Faced, or put an order with MUG. Probably the latter as MUG is a lot cheaper than Too Faced.
