ColourPop Truth Super Shock Shadow
ColourPop Truth Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Truth Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “neutral light beige.” It’s a light beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff with a soft, blendable consistency that worked well on the lid and didn’t sheer out (though it was easy to diffuse the edges) too readily. It started to crease on me slightly after nine hours. I also really like this one (personally) on my brow bone, so it’s been a new go-to for me when I test out other ColourPop shades, as when you sheer it out (on purpose), it gives a subtle sheen. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

ColourPop Smash Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “neutram medium warm beige.” It’s a light-medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nice pigmentation with a very smooth, creamy consistency that was blendable and easy to apply. It wore well for nine and a half hours before creasing slightly. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

ColourPop Desert Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “warm saddle brown.” It’s a medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had really good color payoff, but the color is more prone to sheering out on the lid, especially if you use a brush. I think a brush works with it, but you may need to add a second layer. The color wears well for ten hours on me without creasing or fading. See comparison swatches/ view dupes.

ColourPop 3 (Three) Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned starlit bronze.” It’s a medium brown with warm undertones and a subtle gray cast paired with silver micro-glitter. It had good color payoff that was blendable and easy to apply. I had a little glitter fall out while I blended this shade, but I didn’t notice more than very, very minor fall out during the ten-hour crease-free, fade-free wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

ColourPop Doe-a-Deer Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “blackened violet.” It’s a deepened, blackened purple with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff that looked uneven when sheered out, so it needed more work to really buff and blend in. I felt like it lost a lot of its intensity once blended, though. It started to crease after nine hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

I’ve heard from some people that a lot of the shades in this range (frosty/metallic) tend to work best applied with a finger, have you found this to be true?Or can you achieve the same result with a synthetic brush? How do you usually apply these when you test them out?

Hi Neetz,

I usually use natural fiber brushes (MAC 239), and then I’ll try a synthetic brush. My fingertips are really large, so if I applied that way, I could get maybe two shades onto my lid and they look like a mess. I’ve only had one or two shades that seem like they apply better with fingertips, otherwise brushes have yielded great, opaque results.

Unless I’m blending them out on purpose, like in the crease, I use a sponge tip applicator. I had to actually go buy some just to use with these.

I also find a sponge tip applicator works well. Usually a flat synthetic brush works well, but sometimes I need the sponge tip to get them as vivid as I want. Then I let it set few seconds and give it a light blend with a brush.

It’s hard to see just from the picture alone, but 3 has so much pretty multidimensional glitters, it punches up a pretty regular colour, it’s so pretty and unusual!!

I like the colour of Doe a Deer best here (although I’m obviously biased toward whichever shadow is purple, hah!) although it’s a shame about the performance.

Super excited that ColourPop is shipping to Aus/NZ now though! πŸ˜€

These are so pretty, especially the last three. Doe-a-Deer is gorgeous. It looks like one I’d pat on rather than blend, though, if I wanted it really intense.

Again, these ColorPop eyeshadows just look so good. I wish I could get my hands on some of their stuff but they don’t ship internationally. I shall admire from afar. Saying that, I’m supposed to be on a no-buy anyway.

Hmm, there are so many things I want but I can’t get anything! πŸ˜›

These shadows look to be a great quality. The price is only $5.00?! Plus, I signed up for their newsletter and you get a code for $5.00 off your first order. Excellent find!!
