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).

Our famous long-wearing crème powder formula with a unique bouncy-like texture. It's super creamy, insanely pigmented, and has one swipe intensity with zero fallout. For Max Coverage - Use your fingertip and tap shadow directly onto the eyelid. A flat, firm synthetic brush will also work and is perfect for detailed application close to the lash line. To Blend - Use a fluffy synthetic brush with good movement, dip the tip into the shadow and apply with a "windshield wiper" movement throughout the crease of the eye for a soft and diffused look.

I get so many compliments when I wear Milky Way SS. This is a gorgeous fushia and the blue glitters really pop. I personally use glitter glue with all my SS as I have oily lids. I just tap a bit where I want it, pat on the SS, and I can still blend the edges without needing a glitter glue on the blended area. Milky Way plays well with other shadows and on me lasts all night (usually after 8 hours I'm ready to remove it and it is still going strong so it can last well beyond 8 hours).

It's very light reflective and shimmery, yet looks natural. The Super Shock Eyeshadow formula is like halfway between a cream and powder, which makes it so easy to just quickly apply. You can apply just one layer for a sheer look or you can build it up to be more metallic. Perfect for a one and done shadow look!

I was hoping this would be as it looks in the pan... a punchy pink with sparkle. Unfortunately, the pink is very sheer so it is kind of a tint of pink with lots of gold glitter. This does not build up and does not blend regardless of if I use my finger or a wet brush and a primer or a glitter glue. This shadow just does not build up to enough opacity to really even tell there is a hot pink base when applied to the eyelid. I tend to use this more for just topping another shade (ie, if I have a muted pink I will top with this to slightly deepen and glitter it up). This is not a great performer on its own, don't be fooled by how pretty it looks in the pan.

My current go to for a quick simple and easy "one and done" look. Just sweep some all over the lid, and done. On my skin this looks like an olive green with silver and lighter green flash, and its stunning. Wear time over primer is usually 9ish hours before it starts to disappear into my crease. This super shock is pigmented, so a little goes a long way.

Literally, love this shadow SO MUCH. The glitter is there all day! It's super smooth to apply and blend and is very pigmented! The only thing I'm sad about is it's super unique so finding dupes will be hard. :(

This shade puts the glitter in "ultra-glitter". Seriously, I can only apply this by patting it on the lid with a silicone sponge, because any other way and glitter chunks just end up everywhere. All over my face, on my hands, on my socks somehow. Everywhere. I know a lot of the ultra-glitter super shock shadows have glitter fallout, but this one is absolutely terrible for it. Otherwise, its a pretty sheer shade, and the glitter is gold with a bit of a bright lime green flip, but its not special enough in my eyes to deal with the mess.

A pretty brown shade that I use every day. I love it. It’s a deep brown on very light skin. Medium brown on medium skin.

Looks green in the pan but not on the eye. I can’t describe the color at all. Lot’s of glitter and very buttery. I love it though! Great topper.

This is the most difficult color ever to describe, so I’m not gonna try. It goes with everything and on it’s own. You can use it with green, purple, brown, taupe and mauve colors. Apply with finger!

More beige than Bill. A great crease or transition color. I love it because it blends well.

I love this shadow! It is a burnt orange which applies well with a brush and a finger. Blends really well. I use it with a pink glitter topper.

Less creamy than my other super shocks. But can be applied with brush which is nice! Blends well. The colour is something: purplypink mauve.

This is amazing. The colour has zero glitter and 100% shimmer. Very pretty. Better applied with finger than brush.

Very glittery and blinding! Not as much pigment. Apply with finger because with a brush you will get nowhere.

It’s mainly a glitterbomb. I need a high pigment shadow underneath to make it work. It has very little pigment and a lot of glitter. Also makes a dent the moment you touch it. Does not apply with a brush Well. Use finger!

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!

Like most Ultra-Metallic shadows, the formula is great. Color is stunning too if you like really warm shades.

A lovely orange-coral shadow with a very slight pinkish-gold shift. Perfect for a "one and done" eye look. Good pigmentation, very creamy. It's a favorite of mine for spring and summer.

This is a really stunning icy looking shadow. However, it's sheer and very glittery, but that's just due to the Ultra-Glitter formula. I prefer to use it as a topper.

I love the color of this shadow; the duochrome is so stunning. It's quite pigmented as well, considering it's an Ultra-Glitter shadow. I just wish it had a bit less fallout.

True, rich yellow gold. Creamy texture, strong pigmentation. The Ultra-Metallic Super Shock Shadows are the best formula wise in my opinion.

I don't know what went wrong with this shadow. First off, this is in no way an Ultra-Metallic shadow. It doesn't have the metallic sheen that most in those finish have, and it's in fact very sheer. The color itself is beautiful, but that's the only redeeming quality of this shadow. It also smells very similar to Play-Doh in a way that the other Super Shocks do not.

I wasn't a huge fan of this shadow. The color is pretty, but not super unique. It's also far too glittery for my liking; I've discovered that I don't really like the Ultra-Glitter formula of the Super Shock Shadows. Pigmentation is sheer.

I personally think this shadow is difficult to apply, and for some reason it comes off in patches on the lid. I like the finished product, but I had trouble getting this colour to stick on in places on the lid. I used every method of application I can think of, and it needs finger application or a dense synthetic brush. It's annoying because I hate using my fingers for application.

Great glitter topper to use over similar shades or a pop of light for the middle of the lid. Doesn't budge once its on. Best to use with your fingers.
