ColourPop Balloon Pop is a very warm-toned, light-medium beige with a sparkle finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow that retails for $6.00 and contains 0.07 oz.
ColourPop Balloon Pop Super Shock Shadow ($6.00 for 0.07 oz.) seemed to have more of a transparent or sheerer base and was chocked-full of champagne and beige sparkle and slightly finer pink and peach pearl, which gave it an intense, sparkling finish that was rather shiny. It appeared a lot lighter applied than it did in the pot as well.
The texture was smooth, emollient, and cream-like to the touch with a moderately dense, sponge-like feel. It had a thin, more powder-like feel when applied to skin, which had good adhesion and blended out well. For those who like one-and-done, sparkly top coat kind of shades, I could see that working for that purpose. It was a little chunky as a standalone shade, though, so it did apply better with a fingertip or packed on with a flat, synthetic brush. It stayed on well for nine hours with light fallout over time.
Note: As I'm writing this review ahead of the launch, I will check back to see if this was intended to be sheerer, but the rating is based on the Super Shock Shadow formula, in general.
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
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.
