ColourPop's Super Shock Shadows

   If you couldn't pick up how much I love ColourPop Cosmetics from my review of their Lippie Stix, then today's review of their Super Shock Shadows should make it absolutely clear!
   The packaging for these products once again mimic the effortlessly stylish and clean look of ColourPop's website; properly labeled, effortless to use, and protected nicely.
   These eyeshadows are deigned to be super pigmented without need for building up, and easy to use when in a hurry and you can't be bothered with makeup brushes. Well... They succeed! These are best applied by tapping over the desired area with the pad of your ring finger/pinky; you'll end up with perfect product distribution. The Super Shock Shadows blend wonderfully with a fluffy brush, and if you want to add a bit of sharpness to your edges I suggest a short angled brush (or use the tape trick).
   Every formula is creamy, but have fantastic staying power. As I'm forever repeating in these reviews, I have very oily eyelids that just LOVE soaking up product... These products do not crease or smudge on me, and last all day long when over a primer. When tested without primer, the eyeshadows lasted hours longer than any other I have ever used before; pigment faded slightly due to them sinking into my skin but easy to touch-up.
   The Super Shock Shadow range come in several finishes; satin, matte, metallic, ultra-metallic, pearlized, and pressed pigments... The colors I chose to review are a handful of wonderful shades for the upcoming colder months, and are listed in the order they are swatched in the photos below.
   Side note: The top photo shows natural lighting (left) and indoor/unnatural lighting (right). The bottom photo shows staying power after two swipes with a Simple makeup removing wipe. The left swatches are with primer, the right are without.
  • Boy Band - An ultra metallic, and ultra gorgeous, red-copper in a pearlized finish.
  • Supermodel - Soft, golden ivory tone in a pearlized finish that's perfect as a base, brow highlight, or a simple all over shade to brighten your eyes.
  • Mixed Tape - A shimmering cool-toned gray in a pearlized finish that looks wonderful blended out.
  • Central Perk - Officially my new favorite eyeshadow! The perfect mix of deep maroon and berry in a matte finish.
  • Roulette - The ultimate, true matte black. Nothing else needs to be said.
  • Party Time - Mixed Tape's mauvey gray cousin, in a matte finish. 
   ***All ingredients can be found on each product's page at ColourPop.com***
   I give the ColourPop Cosmetics Super Shock Shadows a 5/5 - I absolutely adore them! They have a wonderful range of colors meant for all skin tones, and are priced far lower than the quality of the product received... I can't wait to get my hands on more shades, and you should too!
