Can You Beelieve

ColourPop Can You Beelieve Super Shock Shadow Duo ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) includes a darker, metallic gold and a bright, orange-coral with sparkle. They were both pigmented, long-wearing, and fairly easy to use, though they were not utter perfection as so many of the Super Shocks have been.

Harmony

Harmony is a rich, darker gold with strong, warm orange undertones and sparkling finish. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation paired with a lightly emollient texture that was lightweight, thin, and quick to turn powder-like once applied to the skin. This shade lasted well for 10 hours on me.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.07 oz. – $85.71 Per Ounce

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow is a cream-based formula that comes in a multitude of shades and finishes. The more metallic shades have the most slip to them (they have a “wetter” feel), while the more matte ones have a firmer, more clay-like consistency. Almost every shade I’ve tried from ColourPop has been exceptionally long-wearing (10+ hours of wear, usually there until I remove, even 14 hours later). The pigmentation can vary from shade to shade, but the average shade is quite pigmented.

From feedback I’ve seen from readers, many love them but some don’t like them at all. They aren’t a traditional cream eyeshadow, as they are denser (more sponge-like), and they apply best with flat, firm, synthetic brushes (I like the MAC 242 and 249) for me. The brand recommends using fingers for the most pigmented application, but I’ve only felt that fingers were necessary on a few shades (usually the super glittery ones).

The more matte shades can be on the drier side and vary from medium to opaque in coverage, though they’re often buildable.  They can be a little hard to diffuse the edges of, though some are lovely to work with.

The more glittery shades have been the weakest to me, as they can be sheerer or harder to apply.  Sometimes, they are more pigmented and work like the other finishes in the formula, but often, they are sheerer and only function well patted on top of more pigmented eyeshadows to add glitter.  They do, however, tend to have little fallout over time with the occasional shade having a more moderate amount of fallout (but still less fallout than most powder eyeshadows with glitter).

6AM

6AM is a bright, medium orange-coral satin base with lighter, chunkier flecks of peachy-gold sparkle throughout. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, moderately-dense texture that was a little thicker compared to most of the brand’s Super Shock Shadows but more emollient than their full-matte shades. It applied better with a fingertip to help smooth the larger sparkles into place. It wore well for 10 hours without creasing or fallout.
