Colourpop Super Shock Shadows are ultra pigmented single eyeshadows with a unique creamy texture. They come in a variety of finishes such as satin, metallic and matte. With well over 5 dozen different colors, there’s something for everyone.
These eyeshadows are usually sold as singles for the amazing price of only $5 each. Occasionally they put together coordinating colors into boxed collections. One collection, Megan Naik, recently caught my eye so I decided to finally give the brand a try.
If you’re a makeup junkie like me and enjoy following other beauty blogs and YouTube gurus then I can guarantee you’ve already heard so many great things about their products. I’ve seen so many swatches of almost all of the colors by now and they all rock.
I was really drawn to the colors in this collection so I thought it would be a good place for me to start exploring their shadows. The Megan Naik set comes with 4 Super Shock Shadows.
- Onai (Satin) – creamy off white with a hint of pink
- Farah (Matte) – deep chocolate brown
- Lectra (Metallic) – burgundy wine with pink glittery specks
- Amira (Metallic) – antique gold with multi-colored glittery specks
The Super Shock Shadows come in cute round containers with screw off lids. Because of their creamy formula, it’s recommended that you keep the lids firmly screwed on so they don’t dry out.
As expected, I’m extremely impressed by the pigmentation and color payoff with these shadows. Amira has a little less color payoff if worn alone but looks amazing as a topper.
I’m also impressed by their staying power. I usually always need an eyelid primer or else I experience creasing at about the 4 hour mark. I’ve been testing these without any primer and they last all day.
That’s shocking to me because that very rarely happens. Every shadow creases on me, even when they claim to be creaseless and long wearing. Not these buggers. They stay put and still look fab even after 8 hours.
I can officially say I’m now hooked on these Colourpop eyeshadows. They blow everyone else out of the water when it comes to not only price but pigmentation and color variety as well.
