Review & Swatches: Colour Pop Super Shock Shadows

You all know I’ve been trying to incorporate color into my eye looks, but it’s so hard with all of the seductive neutrals that are so popular right now. When I stumbled upon the brand Colour Pop and their $5 Super Shock Shadows, though, I was inspired!

Review & Swatches: Colour Pop Super Shock Shadows

The Super Shock Shadows are highly pigmented and smooth eyeshadows. I chose six shades that could help me create dramatic looks together, or to use as pops of color on their own.

Review & Swatches: Colour Pop Super Shock Shadows- DareDare is a super vibrant royal purple with pink and violet sparkles. In most light, it looks like a deep pink.

Review & Swatches: Colour Pop Super Shock Shadows- KimonoKimono is a deep cobalt blue with blue and violet sparkles.

Review & Swatches: Colour Pop Super Shock Shadows- LibertyLiberty is a very bright, metallic silver.

Review & Swatches: Colour Pop Super Shock Shadows- AmazeAmaze is a beautiful shimmery rose gold. It’ll spice up any neutral look times ten!

Review & Swatches: Colour Pop Super Shock Shadows- EnvyEnvy is a black with heavy, purple glitter.

Review & Swatches: Colour Pop Super Shock Shadows- MeowMeow is a unique marbled shade with splashes of pink, black, and silver. Mixing all the colors together will get you a holographic glitter effect. Cool on its own, awesome on top of other colors!

All of these are strikingly rich shades that apply extremely smoothly. The formula seems like a cross between a powder and a cream… a mousse with a powder finish, perhaps? They are very soft, and it doesn’t take more than a tap of the finger to pick up a lot of color. Colour Pop suggests to apply with the finger or blend out with a synthetic brush, and to shut the packaging super tight after use to keep the formula fresh. I found that using my finger gave the most even and pigmented application.

I got all-day wear time with only a tiny bit of creasing on my oily lids with the Super Shock Shadows. At the end of the day, the color was just as bright as when first applied. The only downside, albeit slight, was that the sparkly shades seemed to transfer glitter to the top of my eyelid after some time. Other than that, they didn’t budge– even the swatches didn’t want to come off under running water!

With the variety of intense shades, strong color payoff and downright cool formula, these $5 eyeshadows are a win for me. They’re unlike anything I’ve found across drugstore and high-end collections alike. These would make fantastic palettes… get on that, Colour Pop!

    I haven’t seen this brand before. I love how Meow looks in the pot – don’t you wish that there was a way to transfer that look to the eye? Envy is so pretty too. Can’t wait to see what you do with them!

    Dare, Kimono and Liberty are great choices to add some color!! They almost look like loose shadows.

    Love it Babe! However, we do not sell a four pan palette! It is just a 4 piece kit with a special edition eyeshadow which can only be purchased in the kit! So happy you love them xox
