Run Wild

ColourPop Run Wild Super Shock Shadow ($6.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium bronze with warm, golden undertones and pearl along with flecks of contrasting lavender and pink micro-sparkle throughout a metallic finish. It had intense color coverage that adhered well to bare skin with a smooth, even lay down of color that remained blendable along the edges.

The texture was lightly emollient, cream-like to the touch, but dense and spongy as the formula is designed to be. It felt more powder-like once it came into contact with my skin. This shade wore well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

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).

Basic Instinct

ColourPop Basic Instinct Super Shock Shadow ($6.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with moderate, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had rich pigmentation with a lightly emollient consistency that felt wet to the touch but smooth and wasn’t too slippery.

The eyeshadow applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well along the edges as it turned more powder-like once it came into contact with my skin. It lasted nicely for 10 hours without fading or creasing.

Free Reign

ColourPop Free Reign Super Shock Shadow ($6.00 for 0.07 oz.) has a deep, muted brown base with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of pink and olive gold pearl and sparkle throughout a more satin-like base.

It had opaque color coverage with a creamy, smooth consistency that was emollient but not overly slippery, so it applied evenly and yielded opaque coverage in one layer. It stayed on well for 10 hours with only a touch of fallout over time.

Basic Instinct was within my most recent order with CP. I do like it, but with I would have gotten Free Reign instead since Lashes is a pressed glitter. Similar enough to it to replace it in looks, I think.

These little gems are amazing – such perfect quality and universal neutral shades. It shows what the brand can do when they really try. This is a reminder of what CP use to be like all the time.
Out of the three – I like Run Wild and Basic Instinct the best.

At first I just got Basic Instinct, then placed another order for the other two when I saw your swatches! I absolutely love the SSS formula, and I’m glad to see that I only had a couple of possible dupes (pretty far down on the list) for one of them, so they’ll be unique to my collection.

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!
