Glowing Strong

ColourPop Glowing Strong Super Shock Shadow Duo ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) includes a bright, silvery blue and peachy-gold, both with more metallic finishes. They were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing, which made them consistent with past experiences I’ve had with this formula.

Ember

Ember is a very pale, silvery blue base with slightly warmer, green-tinted gold micro-sparkle over a metallic finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin. The texture was lightly emollient, thin, and turned to a powder as soon as it came into contact with my skin. It wore well for 10 hours without fading or creasing.

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow is a cream-based formula that comes in a multitude of shades and finishes. The more metallic shades have the most slip to them (they have a “wetter” feel), while the more matte ones have a firmer, more clay-like consistency. Almost every shade I’ve tried from ColourPop has been exceptionally long-wearing (10+ hours of wear, usually there until I remove, even 14 hours later). The pigmentation can vary from shade to shade, but the average shade is quite pigmented.

From feedback I’ve seen from readers, many love them but some don’t like them at all. They aren’t a traditional cream eyeshadow, as they are denser (more sponge-like), and they apply best with flat, firm, synthetic brushes (I like the MAC 242 and 249) for me. The brand recommends using fingers for the most pigmented application, but I’ve only felt that fingers were necessary on a few shades (usually the super glittery ones).

The more matte shades can be on the drier side and vary from medium to opaque in coverage, though they’re often buildable.  They can be a little hard to diffuse the edges of, though some are lovely to work with.

The more glittery shades have been the weakest to me, as they can be sheerer or harder to apply.  Sometimes, they are more pigmented and work like the other finishes in the formula, but often, they are sheerer and only function well patted on top of more pigmented eyeshadows to add glitter.  They do, however, tend to have little fallout over time with the occasional shade having a more moderate amount of fallout (but still less fallout than most powder eyeshadows with glitter).

Up Late

Up Late is a medium, peachy-gold with warm, orange undertones and flecks of fine sparkle over a more metallic sheen. It had rich pigmentation in a single stroke, which applied evenly to bare skin with a brush or a fingertip. The consistency was lightweight, emollient but not overly so, and transitioned to a powder once it came into contact with skin. It lasted nicely for 10 hours before fading slightly.
