Colourpop Cosmetics | Super Shock Shadow Collection

Hi Beauties!

ColourPop Cosmetics has definitely stepped up their game! With the constant influx of new products and collaborations, it is easy to see why this brand has become such a staple within the beauty community. And the best part? The majority of their single products within the price range of $5 – $8 USD ($6 – $11 AUD), so you can see why their products are a major hit.

Today’s post is going to focus on my little collection of Super Shock Shadows. A quick disclaimer before we start, ColourPop is a brand that is always growing and bringing out new collections. Due to this, they tend to discontinue older shades which is why this post only has a few links to products. I brought most of these shadows a year or more ago (is that too long to keep something? I don’t even want to know) so most of these shades are sadly discontinued however, there are so many new shades on their website that are so similar to some discontinued shades I am mentioning today. So if you like the look of something, I am sure you can find something similar on their website.

Let’s get into it!

Colourpop Cosmetics Super Shock Shadow Shades (top to bottom) – Nillionaire, Weenie, Muse, Drift, Bae

Nillionaire – this shade is described as a warm bronze with tones of gold and multi-coloured glitter and it has a metallic finish. This is another one of those unique shades that I knew I had to keep in my collection. I do find with this shade that the shimmers did fall when being applied.

Weenie – this shade was released as part of the Kathleen Lights ‘Where The Night Is’ collection, however, I purchased it on its own and not as part of the collection. This shade is described as a pinky rose gold with a pearl finish. This shade looks so nice when it’s all over the lid as it really does add a beautiful shimmer to different looks.

Muse – this shade is described as a vibrant copper rose with a pearl finish. Again, I feel like I am repeating myself a lot in this post, I love using this all over the lid as it is one of those shades that pops and looks so vibrant and shimmery with other matte shadows.

Drift – this shade is described as a true cranberry colour with a pearl finish. If you can’t already tell, I love me some cranberry red/purple shades as those really make my green eyes pop! I do find this shade slightly drier than other super shock shadow shades, but it still performs the same, if not better, then others.

Bae – this is another unique shade in my collection. It is described as a rich eggplant purple shade with blue glitters. It also has a duo-chrome shift to it with makes it extra special. This shade is newer to my collection so I haven’t gotten to play around with it too much.

Discontinued/Not Currently in Stock Shades
Girly – this shade is described as a creamy vanilla shade with a flash of pink and gold duo-chrome. It also has a satin finish. I like using this all over the lid, or as a highlight shade as it tends to sheer out when applied.

Desert – this was also a part of the ‘Never Not Chillin’ collection. It was described as a medium brown shade with a satin finish. Although it is a satin, I like using this shade in the crease or as an all over lid colour. I have found that this shade wears very nicely and doesn’t sheer out or fade too much after a long period of time.

Thirsty Girl – this was another shade that was a part of the ‘Never Not Chillin’ collection. It was described as a deep brown with olive undertones and gold glitter. This is one of those shades that I don’t use often, but when I do use it I fall in love with it all over again! I love using it on the lid to add some real shine to a look.

Birthday Cake – I received this shade for free during a promotion that ColourPop had to celebrate their 3rd birthday, and it is therefore no longer available for purchase. It was described as a rose/copper shade with flecks of pink and copper sparkle. Again, this is a shade that I don’t use too often, but when I do I love using it in the inner corner of the lid to add some shimmer and sparkle, and I also find it to be a good inner corner highlight.

Colourpop Cosmetics Super Shock Shadow Shades (top to bottom) – Babykins, Porter, Dance Party, Patchwork

Babykins – this was another shade that I got with the ‘Never Not Chillin’ collection. It was described as a plum shade with warm undertones and a pearly sheen finish. This is another shade that I like using all over the lid for a more intense look or worked slightly into the crease for some depth.

Porter – this is another shade I got which was released as part of the Kathleen Lights ‘Where The Night Is’ collection. It was described as a warm burgundy with gold glitter throughout and a metallic finish. This is another shade that I think works well in the crease despite the fact that it is glittery. It also looks amazing blended into the outer corner of the eye with a similar lighter shade on the inner corner.

Dance Party – this is another unique shade in my collection. It was described as a dark purple shade with pink and purple flecks of sparkle. I find this shade really sheers out when applied and it can be harder to blend because of this.

Patchwork – the final shade that I kept from the ‘Never Not Chillin’ collection. This shade was described as a blackened teal with a shimmer finish. This shade is super glittery, and if I am being honest I have found it really hard to work with as it does have that black base under the teal shift. This means when you try to blend it out that black base becomes more visible and can make the shadow look a little muddy. But still, a stunning shade to have and a very unique one in my collection.
