Perfect. I have found my Colourpop UK dealer! Omg that sounds so bad, but you know what I mean! I found a lady that sells GENUINE Colourpop for amazing prices! So had to invest in these bad boys because I have heard so many amazing things about them!and was very keen to get my hands on some! I knew I wanted Goodbye Butterfly and I knew I wanted REM!
I like the packaging. They kind of remind me like buttons, nice and cute! They are compact and travel friendly! All in all faultless packaging!
They come in various finishes. I will go through them more in depth to match the swatches and explain what I like/dislike about the finishes! The finishes are as followed.
Ultra Glitter – Probably my favourite texture! Very creamy but with an intense glitter running through the shadow! My favourite favourite shade of this finish is REM and Six In The City!
Pearlised/Tie Dye -This finish is newer and can sometimes be found in the same as the others but in brackets! I have the shade Mermaid Kiss! I adore this finish because you can customise it depending on the pearled colours you choose to apply!
Ultra Metallic – My favourite shade of this is IRL, which is a limited edition shade, but they are a lovely finish! They shiny but not glittery! And can get a gorgeous duochrome with some too!
Matte – My next favourite texture! These blend a dream and I love applying them as bases for eyeshadows! My favourite shades of these are Bill, Kennedy and Brady! So smooth and blendable!
Satin – These are the happy mediums of the matte and ultra glitter! They are a matte shade but have a lovely glitter running through them! Wattles and Goodbye Butterfly are my favourites of them all!
The formulas are delightful, they all feel very similar and it is just the finishes are different! They are a soft creamy texture that set to a slightly powdery finish, but still have a stretch finish. I haven’t had any trouble with creasing with these but don’t have oily eyelids. And they are hooded too, but still creasing isn’t an issue with them, which I love!
The only shade I was massively disappointed with was So Quiche, which could be down to me getting a bad one. But it was very chunky in texture. Pigmented, don’t get me wrong. But it was chunky in glitter and the pigment too which meant I got it all over my face. The colour as well was a bit boring; it looked like there was a pink shift to it online and even in the pan. However on the eye and swatched, it is just a muddy brown shade. Big disappointment.
My favourite shades out of all of the ones I own are Bill, Goodbye Butterfly, REM and IRL! I find I use these the most because they not only make for a lovely wash of colour on the lid on a day I don’t want much on my eyes. But they make for fantastic bases for proper eyeshadow looks! Eyeshadows blend gorgeously over the top of them and as there is a pigment underneath or a bit of shimmer underneath, they are just lovely! Desperate to get some more now!
The following pictures are looks I have created with the Supershock Eyeshadows in this post!
All in all I think these are amazing, and I haven’t found anything else in the makeup world that is similar in texture, quality and finish! They are just gorgeous! I even just bought my best friend her first one, I bought her Ripple! Which was a gorgeous Metallic cool toned purple with a turquoise duochrome! And she loves them just as me! I adore these! I want them all! It’s an addiction…and I’m not even sorry!
I hope you enjoyed this blog post! Anyone have any shade recommendations? Not that I need encouragement to buy more…but PLEASE!
