With 55+ shades to choose from, Colourpop Super Shock Shadow has a color for every eye look.
Who doesn’t want to rock some hot pink glitter eyeshadow every now and then? Of course, these aren’t the shadows I like to dish out a lot of money on since they aren’t something I reach towards for everyday wear. Luckily, Colourpop Super Shock Shadow exists at only $6 a pop. There’s 55+ shades to choose from in a variety of matte, shimmer, and glitter finishes. Whether you want a matte nude eye, a pop of color, or some chromatic glitter, you’re sure to find a shade (or 3) of Super Shock Shadow.
Promises vs. Performance: Is it powder? Is it cream?
Colourpop calls Super Shock Shadow a “revolutionary creme-powder eyeshadow.” Its unique bouncy texture is finger-friendly or can be applied with a brush. Colourpop promises bold pigment, with one-swipe intensity. When applied, there should be zero fallout with this cruelty fee, vegan eyeshadow.
I don’t know about you, but I have several of these little babies in my makeup collection. There’s just so many shades and finishes for almost any eye look imaginable. Touching the formula, you’ll immediately notice Super Shock Shadow’s unique texture. It feels like a cream, but it also feels like a powder.
The application is fairly easy with this one. You can use your finger to pack on the color or a brush for a softer, more diffused look. To layer shadows use a fluffy blender brush or a dense smudging brush to use as an eyeliner. The pigment is buildable in intensity, and the formula can be layered with other products for customizable eye looks. And, the glitter/shimmer shades have minimal fallout when applied.
I will say, Colourpop Super Shock Shadow isn’t as long wearing as I hoped for. Colourpop boasts these eyeshadows have a long wear formula, but for me they start creasing and fading after the 4-6 hour mark. Layering with a good eye primer does help some, but I find I still experience a little creasing and fading. I do think some of the shades are longer lasting than the others – maybe due to the pigments used!
Quick Rating Rundown
Colourpop:Super Shock Eye Shadow
How It Compares: Colourpop Super Shock Shadow is a great value.
Let’s be honest – at $6 each, we can all afford to add a few of Colourpop Super Shock Shadows to our makeup collections. These creamy powder eyeshadows have a unique bouncy texture that makes them finger-friendly, perfect for a quick makeup look. Whether you want a matte brown, hot pink glitter, or a duo-chrome glitter, Colourpop has a shade for every look out there. I will say, these are best worn with an eyeshadow primer for best results. They can crease and fade a bit, but I am willing to overlook it for the cost, amazing shade range, and easy to use texture.
But, perhaps you’re looking for something a bit different, like matte liquid shdow or a metallic cream eyeshadow. If that’s the case, you’re in luck – The Milabu Team has put together a list of our favorite eyeshadows for a one and done look, AKA swipe and go! Check out our MILBAU PICKS here.
