Beautiful peachy gold duochrome. Probably my favorite ColourPop shadow ever created. Buttery and pigmented with no fallout.

Fireball is such a beautiful color - extremely metallic and duochrome with a pink/peach shift that looks great with green eyes, especially. I have “mature” eyes (45+, but still immature!) and they are both deep-set and very hooded. Because of that, I really need a very fine brush when it comes to eyeliner. This has a super-small brush that’s not too short to apply to deep-set kids, and not so long that you lose control of the wand. It dries very, very quickly and stays put, and isn’t irritating, which is rare for a metallic liner (I have crazy sensitive lids). I find this so much easier to use than the Colourpop Jelly Much in Once and Floral, which is a similar pink/peach metallic but messy as heck to use and not as easy to control without a tiny brush. One star off for the price ($22 normally) versus the amount of product, which is .07 oz. [post-script: I just read that these are being discontinued! Sigh.]

Pretty much totally unwearable without glitter glue - it’s just a bunch of fallout with almost no base pigment. It’s hard to believe MAC is still selling these, given the fact that there are so many better products on the market - not only in creaminess and applicability, but also in level of sparkle. There is nothing “dazzling” about this experience, unfortunately.

I was a sucker for the 50% off sale that Sephora just had on these, although I really liked Warm Brown Obsessions, the only Obsessions palette I had previously. I’m shocked at how good these are. They are incredibly creamy and beautiful, with interesting colors and intense pigment. The brown shades, which look like they might be the boring colors of the bunch, are truly gemstone-like in their intense shine and brilliance; they are also my favorites! They are stunning on green eyes. Huda Beauty is hit or miss, but this is a clear hit!

I took a chance as they were on sale for 50% off. I lost. These are horrible - after multiple coats, you still can’t see any pigment, and what little you do is patchy as hell. About all I can say positive is that they are non-drying.

Bright Response

I use Bright Response as an eyeshadow, as it’s in a 26mm pan. It fits in with all of my other depotted and individual 26mm shimmer shadows perfectly, and is the brightest shimmering orange I own with only one exception (MUFE ME-734 is brighter, more glittery and pigmented, but also slightly more coral). It’s slightly chalky out of the pan, but blends beautifully on the eyes. Bright Response is more of a satin shade than a glitter or metallic, but the color is just gorgeous on green eyes. And of course, in a pinch, I could use it as a shadow, although it looks better and more vibrant on darker skin. If you have medium to dark skin tone, this color would be stunning on you!

Really nice set of what feels like almost pure pigments. They kick up a lot of powder when you put your brush down - even a gentle brush touch results in major kick up. That said, the shadows blend like a dream and go on opaque with the smallest amount. Highly recommend if you want dense pigmentation that’s easy to blend; if you like more subtle and slowly buildable color (Surratt-esque), then these might be too intense. Personally, I love the deep pigmentation and don’t mind the powderiness. The colors are spectacular on green eyes.

I had zero interest in this when it came out - to me, the colors were ugly. As a person with green (hazel) eyes, I never wear teals or army greens as they make my eyes look far less green and more brown and yellowish. And then Subculture-gate took over and I figured I had dodged a bullet. A few days ago, I found a brand new and unblemished palette at Marshall’s, and it was marked for clearance for a really low price. I bought it, figuring I could give it to a family member. I ended up playing around with it, and I love it! Is there a significant powder kicked up? Sure - but what highly-pigmented matte shadow doesn’t? This appears to be just like Modern Renaissance in terms of powder. I’d call myself an untalented beginner at makeup despite my age, and I use products somewhat sparingly and build color slowly (I’m “an old,” and in a conservative line of work). I’ve had no problems whatsoever with the palette looking like hell, and I absolutely love how easy it is to apply and blend. The colors, especially Edge, New Wave and Roxy, look great on hazel-green eyes, and Cube and Electric are totally fun and original. The only colors I don’t use are Destiny, Untamed and Axis, making Subculture - at the robbery price I paid - totally worth it.

The color is absolutely stunning - a kind of duochrome burgundy/plum with subtle gold reflects. It looks beautiful on the eyes and is saturated with pigment. That said, it’s an absolute mess working with it. The plastic jar has a cap insert that holds the product inside, and when you peel that off to open the jar, the product is everywhere - with a large amount smeared on the bottom of the cap, and all around the jar rim. It also sets almost immediately, so you have to blend the edges quickly. I had it all over my brush and my hands, and it required significant clean-up. It’s not like the Super Shock Shadows, which you can throw in your purse, apply with fingers, and have an interesting look out on the go, without a mess. It’s just not my favorite formula, despite being such a beautiful color, given that it’s such a high-maintenance product.

It’s a tie as my most favorite palette with the Queen of Hearts. This is truly a travel palette for me - I know I have everything I need to create my favorite looks with this. Baja is a standout shade and looks beautiful with green eyes. Blaze was the first Urban Decay shade I ever bought, at least 10 years ago, and I still have the empty panned container as it holds so many memories - to have it included in Born to Run was a happy synchronicity. The only colors I haven’t used are Radio, Big Sky and Jet, as they aren’t really my colors. But it’s incredible that a pre-made, 21-shade palette contains all the shades I love and use, save three. It really is my perfect palette - one that I’d create if I were choosing singles.

Super-bright and full of pigment. This is an excellent, creamy shadow that applies richly with one swipe. I find it’s best to use a finger to apply, as I do with all ColourPop Super Shock Shadows. Gorgeous color with green eyes!
