If you follow any beauty blog or beauty news site I’m sure you have seen ColourPop
Random side note, I’m surprised for a beauty brand made in the US it spells colour with a U. Their website FAQ states
Why do you spell ColourPop with a “u”?
Umm…because we embrace every opportunity to be classy. Colour without the “u,” so basic.
I’m finally excited about this brand as they now ship to Australia. Shipping is charged based on weight, so it is what it is. But it is AMAZING
- Very pigment
- so creamy
- really sparkly
- And the main thing that has really made the internet BOOM is: it’s unlike any shadow on the market and you have to try it.
- Did we mention it is SOO pigmented.
Super Shock Shadows as a thin, cream shadow not a powder even though it looks like it in the photos. The formula is very silicone (dimethicone) based so consistency feels slippery and velvety to touch, kinda creamy, moussey and this is why everyone is saying it has a wet like feeling. You need to use your finger to apply, your wasting your time if you use a brush to apply! Colourpop are really big on reminding you to keep the lid on tight to avoid drying out.
Tips for application, Colourpop also has this on their website and YOU SHOULD FOLLOW IT
For maximum coverage: Use fingertip and tap shadow onto eye lid. A flat, fine tip synthetic brush will work fabulously as well and is actually better for a more detailed application close to the lash line. However, your fingertips make for the most intense application. To blend: Use a fluffy brush that has good movement, dip tip of the brush into the shadow and blend with a “wind shield wiper” movement throughout the crease of the eye. This will make your shadow softer and more diffused (like a total pro). When finished, close that sucker up tight! Don’t leave the jar opened for long periods of time, you may lose some of the magic that makes the Super Shock Shadow so amazzzing.
My only negative point is the pan is only few millimetres deep, If you use it daily you might hit the pan sooner than expected but at $5USD that’s not too bad, just make sure it doesn’t dry out before you run out.
Have you guys tried Colourpop, what are your thoughts?
