Flown Away

ColourPop Flown Away Super Shock Shadow Duo ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) includes a sparkling, peachy-beige and a gold-sparkled blue-aqua. They are shades that have been released before, for those who are more prolific ColourPop purchasers! They were semi-opaque to opaque in coverage, a little more emollient than typical, and lasted for 10 hours on me.

Ladybird

Ladybird is a light, peach-tinted beige with a sparkling, metallic finish that flashed pink and silver. The consistency was moderately emollient, but it managed to still yield full color payoff in a single layer. This shade worked particularly well as an all-over wash of shimmer/sheen. It wore well for 10 hours without creasing or fallout.

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).

Mint 4 U

Mint 4 U is a light-medium bluish-aqua with warmer gold and teal sparkle throughout. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation paired with a smooth, moderately emollient texture that was lightweight and quick to turn powder-like when it came into contact with my skin. It stayed on nicely for 10 hours before fading visibly.
