ColourPop Super Shock Shadows
                $5.00 each!

shark attack

  • pearlized finish
  • warm coral color
  • just a hint of shimmer that glistens when the light catches it
  • very pigmented
  • i use this for an all over lid shadow

hanky panky

  • matte finish
  • cool toned toupe color
  • very similar to any light to medium cool skin tone which makes it almost invisible on the skin
  • i use this as an eye shadow base to set my eye primer

birthday girl

  • special editon–released for colourpop’s birthday in may!
  • rose gold tones, lots of shimmer
  • metallic finish
  • heavy glitter with lots of fall out
  • i would recommend using this sparingly with your fingers, and using a makeup cloth to immediately remove the excess fall out

play

  • matte finish
  • peachy-orange shade with a tinge of camel-like coloring
  • pigment is not deep, so i apply quite a lot of this to achieve the color pay off that i want
  • i use this shadow for a transition color with a crease brush

hustle

  • matte shadow
  • raspberry + plum + burgundy + purple color
  • very pigmented
  • easy to blend out
  • i use this in the outer corner of my eye lid in a “V” shape to deepen the look of a smokey eye or to make whatever eye look i’m wearing more dramatic

cop a feel

  • matte finish
  • cool toned creamy beige with a touch of peach tones
  • not very pigmented–similar color pay off to “play”
  • this almost disappears on my eyes as well, so i use it as a brow bone highlight or an inner corner highlight

nillionaire

  • metallic finish
  • bronze shade with flecks of gold glitter
  • once applied to the eye, all of the glitter and shadow blend together for this stunning, in-your-face bronze color
  • super pigmented
  • lays on the eye lid evenly, and without a lot of fall out
  • i use this shadow when i am trying to make a statement! it makes me feel like a roman goddess when i use this…basically, i feel like a million bucks!

verdict: i am so impressed with the quality of ColourPop’s Super Shock Shadows, especially since they are only $5.00 each. this company has very affordable products and is cruelty-free. Since they are only available to purchase online, it can be tricky picking out the right colors for your skin tone. i would HIGHLY recommend reading blog posts with pictures of swatches or going on YouTube and watching swatch videos to get a better idea of each shadow’s true tone and pigment. that’s the only down side to simply reading reviews on their website because each of us have different skin tones and preferences, so pictures really can speak a 1,000 words in this instance! anyways, head over to ColourPop’s website and take advantage of their free shipping with a $30+ purchase! you will not be disappointed!


♥about Super Shock Shadows♥
the texture of these shadows is most unlike any other eye shadows on the market. each shadow comes in a round jar with a lid. once you open the product up, you have about a year to use it. i immediately wanted to touch my finger to the shadow itself, and when i did my finger made a bouncing movement, which surprised me! the formula is very soft and bouncy, not like a hard brick of shadow in a pan or like loose shadow in a pot.

♥how to use♥
ColourPop recommends using your fingers for application of their shadows. i find this does work the best, but sometimes is a little messy and not as precise as i like it. for precision, i use a sonia kashuk small shadow brush with a flat tip to pat onto the lid of my eye. if i am using the shadow as a transition shade or crease color, i use my e.l.f. contour brush in windshield wiper motions to  sweep the product into my eye lid crease to diffuse and blend out the shadow. there are so many different ways to apply and wear these shadows, so be adventurous when testing them out!!

♥about ColourPop♥
from their website, “ColourPop was born, raised and made with love in the City of Angels (aka Los Angeles) so we can react quickly to the latest and greatest trends and get them in your fabulous hands stat.” they do not test their products on animals either, so no worries there!
