Overnight, my Youtube and Instagram feeds were flooded with raves and impressive swatches of the Super Shock Shadows. Prior to ordering, I did some research. So I did. Colourpop suggests you tightly screw the lid, another indication that indeed the formula resembles a cream. Are they unlike any formula on the market? NB: All mattes are infused with a very fine shimmer. We see this frequently, absolute mattes are hard to formulate. Runs a bit sheer on my medium Hard To Say - Shock (25) - Shadows . Infused with very fine shimmer.
Densely packed with pink, lime and gold sparkle. Potentially my favourite. Registers Русалочка - 9 Район - Киллер sheer on my medium skin. This one swatches better than it applies on the eye.
Another duo-chrome that I found underwhelming, could have been more generous with the shimmer. In hindsight, I Lucky - Radiohead - Data Complete have easily skipped Cheeky and Desert, both are uber subtle on my NC skin although subtle may be your thing! Colourpop recommends applying using a finger and I totally agree, pressing the product with a finger provides true-to-pan payoff.
I then quickly blend edges with a synthetic crease brush, whereby I have about a minute playtime. Crease work becomes tricky because one must use a brush — I found that I had to build quite a bit to reach full opacity and the edges were a bit choppy for my liking.
If fallout is your dealbreaker, do keep this in mind. Super Shock Shadows are incredibly long wearing on ma face: no creasing, fading or migration. Perhaps my only legitimate complaint: I would have liked a little more slip to the Super Shock Shadow formula to aid the blending process. I demonstrated this in my Spring Goddess Makeup Tutorial ….
And would probably dry out before you finish. Just a thought. They are indeed an interesting formula and the shade Hard To Say - Shock (25) - Shadows is beyond exciting. Have you tried the Colourpop Super Shock Shadows? I have some Lippie Stix and Lip Pencils too, if you guys are interested in that. I leave you with this….
