ColourPop Midnight Super Shock Shadow
ColourPop Midnight Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Midnight Super Shock Shadow ($20.00 for 0.28 oz. or $5.00 for each 0.07 oz. shade) is a collection of four Super Shock Shadows that can be purchased a “set,” but you can also purchase each shade alone. There’s no monetary advantage to purchasing the set; the only difference is you would get the packaging that reflects the collaboration and collection’s name. It’s a nice selection of shades, and all four shades performed well for me and were consistent with the formula I’ve come to know and love. If you’re unfamiliar with the Super Shock Shadow formula, it 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).

Midnight is described as a “black undertone with a ton of gold glitter on top in a metallic finish.” It’s a blackened olive green with warm undertones and gold glitter. It had semi-opaque coverage that was buildable to opaque coverage with two to three layers of product. The texture was lightly emollient and blended out well without turning patchy. The eyeshadow was still going strong after ten hours of wear (no primer), but I did have a few stray glittery bits underneath my eye. Charlotte Tilbury Veruschka (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Gingerluxe #3 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). MAC Greenluxe #4 (PiP, ) is darker (95% similar).

Porter is described as a “warm burgundy with gold multi-dimensional gold glitter on top [of] a metallic finish.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark cranberry with hints of warm, pinky-copper tones and subtle gold sparkle. The texture had a really creamy, smooth feel to it, and it applied with true-to-pot color with full coverage. It blends out with ease and doesn’t look patchy or faded. On me, I didn’t have any fading or creasing even after ten hours of wear. Colour Pop Lectra (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Heritage Rouge (PiP, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Hidden Motive (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar).

Telepathy is described as a “bright gold with a green undertone in an ultra-metallic finish.” It’s a bright, light-medium yellow gold with an almost “cool” undertone (compared to most golds, which are often orange-based) paired with a metallic sheen. The eyeshadow had great color payoff with a smooth, blendable consistency that applied beautifully and was still in pristine condition after ten hours of wear. Kat Von D Prophet (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). NABLA Cosmetics Citron (P, $8.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Blitz (P, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Urban Decay Fool's Gold (LE, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Weenie is described as a “pinky rose gold in a pearlized finish.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark coppery bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was nicely pigmented with full coverage and a creamy, moderately emollient texture (it felt “wetter” than most ColourPop eyeshadows). It sheered out just a wee bit when applied, but it layered well if you needed pristine, opaque pigmentation. It wore well for ten hours. Coloured Raine Who Me (P, $6.99) is more shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Splendeur et Audace #1 (PiP, ) is darker, more muted, cooler (90% similar).

(LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, brighter (90% similar). MAC Quite Yummy! (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Haze (LE, $45.00) is cooler (90% similar).

I don’t want to know where the name Weenie came from, but I’ve never seen a pearlized hot dog either (this is the tidied up family friendly version of my original thoughts).

Haha yeah, Christine’s right. Kathleen said Weenie is the nickname she calls her dog Selena πŸ™‚ Cornelius and Porter are also CP shades named after her dogs. Makes it much better πŸ˜›

Wendy, I just LoL’d so hard over your comment!!! ? But even though I already knew from Kathleen’s YT video that it was after her dog, I’m like, so what happens when I wear it , and someone says, “Oh, I love that eyeshadow! What is it called?” ?

Thanks everyone. I just snort laughed my morning coffee at the comments here!

Now I have to SEE this dog. I wonder if it is a dachshund… wanders off to check it out….. ponders the sagacity of googling ‘Weenie’…. jk

OMG, Colour Pop can’t seem to do any wrong! One awesome collection after another, but hey at least they aren’t Chanel prices, thank goodness. I’m tempted, but I have dupes in my stash already (incl MUFE Bronze and UD Goldmine) , but I LOVE your eye look and will try to recreate it from my stash.

I think it is really nice that ColourPop is starting to offer the shades from their collections individually. I can’t decide if I want to purchase this whole quad or just Telepathy, Midnight, and Weenie since I already have Lectra which is pretty close to Porter.

Christine, when you apply multiple Colourpop shades for one look, do you use all synthetic brushes? I just realized that most of my brushes are from Japanese lines, so they’re all made of natural hair I might have to go out and purchase a few different synthetic ones because I have a large collection of Colourpop shades but only shaders made of synthetic bristles that I used to use for concealer or patting colour onto my lids.

I usually use synthetic brushes, but I have used MAC 239s and other natural hair brushes without issue… I just know synthetics are better for cream products! Concealer brushes work well for cream eyeshadows, IMO!

I have all Japanese brushes too, and was like “Oh these really don’t excite me” when I first got the shadows. Then I started applying with fingers (per “application tips”) and having so much fun. I have dug out some synthetic ELF brushes to blend and add definition, but I think you use more product. I really love these in case you haven’t noticed….

Those are really pretty; and so is your eye look! I’ve never tried anything from ColourPop(don’t really like ordering online and since I live in NYC, I’ve never had too), but I may have to give these a try!

Christine, this eye look you did using these jaw-dropping stunning, I tell you! Perfection!

Sooo, I have had Telepathy, Porter and Weenie ( yes, I knew it was her doggie, but still, that name!) in my CP cart all month, but wasn’t sure about them. Decided to wait on your review, and I will probably get Porter and Weenie, but Telepathy is duped decently by my UD Blitz. I was REALLY hoping it would be more green. So, for that effect I’m getting MAC Lucky Green! This will prove to be interesting, haha!

This is on my wishlist but I was hesitant to get the whole set because Porter and Weenie could be dupable. Now that I’ve seen that there aren’t so similar to other shadows in my collection, I’m excited to get the four shades!

This is a stunning look you’ve created Christine, not sure it would look quite as good on my bluish/grey with a touch of green eyes? I am tempted though :/

I’ve been on the fence about Telepathy for a while, but I think I’ll have to pick it up. It would be a beautiful inner-corner highlight!

i think it’s great that colourpop made the shades available to purchase separately. weenie and porter are screaming my name. telephathy is also cute. i think midnight would be the only color i wouldn’t use as much. it’s a very nice set!

I just ordered Telepthy, along with Aquarius lippie stick and a few other things. I really wanted both Weenie and Porter, but I already have a few near-dupes for both (MUG Bitten and CP Hustle for Porter, and CP La La and perhaps others for Weenie. No exact dupes but close enough that I can’t justify it).

I think these are really pretty, especially Porter and Telepathy. Not really the most flattering shades for me personally, but beautiful nonetheless — and the swatches look so rich and buttery.

Glad to see they’re splitting up these sets now. I actually think the two shades from Metamorphosis I love are worth essentially $10 a piece, because I really love them, but I ordered a couple of singles along side them, and it would’ve been nicer to spend $20 on four shades I’d like instead of on a set where I don’t use two.

It looks like they might keep breaking up the sets, since KaePop launched today and the “quad” is also available in individual pieces!

Is it just me or do these remind you of the Guerlain Turandot quad from years back? (It could easily be wishful thinking!) This looks lovely on you.

I’m so happy ColourPop broke up both of Kathleen’s sets so the shades can be purchased individually! Between three of these (I don’t believe I can make the red-burgundy shade work with my skin tone) and “Blaze” from her previous release (the only one out of that quad I really wanted), I will have the perfect KL Quad to play with πŸ™‚

My birthday is Sunday. So darn it, I’m breaking my “Low Buy” rules and treating myself!

i got all of these except for midnight & i’m in love with them !!!

telepathy is surprisingly wearable . it doesn’t lean too green on me .

kathleen did a really great job with these .

Absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE that eye look. It would be great if you could post a tutorial, it’s stunning! Definitely getting the quad now, iffy about telepathy’s wearability but you convinced me πŸ™‚
