COLOUR POP SUPER SHOCK SHADOWS | REVIEW

Colour Pop Eyeshadows, Bill, Cricket, Fringe, Hustle, Ibiza, Krinkle, On the Rocks, So Quiche,
This post has been a long one in the making, but I am very excited to finally share it with you all. These ColourPop Super Shock Shadows have been raved about endlessly through blogs, instagram and YouTube.  At $5 a pop (no pun intended), I had to give these a go and make sure they weren't too good to be true. 

I received my eyeshadow in a mail a few weeks ago, and since their much anticipated arrival I've been using them on a daily basis.  I put them through the ringer and tested them in multiple ways- with a base, without a base, on hot days and on cold days. I really wanted to make sure before I shared my opinion that I had used them enough to communicate my honest thoughts. 

These have hands down become my favourite eyeshadows and I can't wait to purchase more. I honestly believe they are better quality than my much loved MAC eye shadows and last all day, even on my hideously oily lids.

The formula of these eyeshadows will not be as you expect. The moment you touch them, you'll be instantly surprised. The shadows themselves are very creamy in consistency, they almost feel like a cream, which is why the original pattern fades away quickly upon use. While I traditionally steer clear from cream for fear of creasing, these eye shadows magically say on the eyelids and almost transform into a powder once blended in.

 The shadows come in 7 interesting and delightful finishes including matte, metallic, pearlized, pressed pigment, satin, tie die and ultra metallic. I purchase 3 of the 7 all of which are fantastic.

Bill (Matte) - This is an amazing taupe/light Brown matte colour. I use this on a daily basis all over my lid, and it's perfect for every day wear. 

Cricket (Metallic) - This colour is so delightfully unique. Every time I swatch it, I feel like it's a colour the belongs in a Disney movie. It's a deep purple with light purple and silver glitter. The glitter has completely no fall out. Magical, I know!

Fringe (Metallic) - Beautiful champagne colour  with silver reflects throughout.  Perfect for a highlight colour. 

Hustle (Matte) - A true burgundy, perfect for smoking out the outer 'c'! A great way to use a different shadow to create a multidimensional smokey eye.  

Ibiza (Pearlized) - Ibiza reminds me of a mermaid. It's a completely whimsical colour and the swatch doesn't do it justice. Its so multidimensional and a perfect turquoise with silver shimmers. This all over the lid, is just mesmerizing. 

Krinkle (Metallic) - Krinkle reminds me of a Christmas Beetle. The colour is a blue/grey with silver and blue shimmer. 

On the Rocks (Metallic)- This colour is also my favourite. It's a beautiful bronze with light purple shimmers and just is delightful on the centre of the lid to complete a look. A must have in any beauty lovers collection. 

So Quiche (Metallic) - Love the name and love the shadow. It's a metallic taupe with purple reflects. Great for all over the lid.

  1. Great products! I love Cricket, Fringe and On The Rocks. They seem to be super pigmented, which is what I always look for in eyeshadows, and that can be a problem in cheap ones because generally they are not pigmented at all. These ones seem worth the try, thank you for sharing!
