Review/Swatches Colour Pop Cosmetics Super Shock Shadow


Colour Pop Cosmetics is seriously bad ass, seriously.  If you LOVE  glittery, creamy and pigmented shadows I just found your new soul mate!  I usually find all my beauty finds on Instagram. C'mon don't tell me you don't sit in bed browsing through your feed because you can't sleep.  For some reason I feel like it's happening to me more and more every night.  I am such a sucker for glittery/mettalic things that when I first saw these white pots I just had to have them (and I know after this post you will too!).


 The shadow is just not your average powder shadow it's like a hybrid of a cream and powder put together in one for a super shimmery pot of goodness. The pigmentation and color pay-off is top notch!  The design imprinted on the shadow goes away but the shimmer/glitter/metallic  does not! Oh and did I mention they are only $5!!! YES! I went crazy and bought a few and then bought a few more.  I'm typing away and I feel like I need to finish my collection.


If you are like me - loves to shop online but hate to wait for the package to get in your hands don't you worry! The shipping was super quick and get this ... free shipping over $30 ... let me break it down that's 6 little Colour Pop Super Shock Shadows!! Let me give you a tour of my Colour Pop Cosmetics collection.



When you open your box you will find your shadows packed away nicely.  
Don't you just love the box?


I really felt special when I saw the handwritten note from the Colour Pop team. Such a great touch to acknowledge their customers. Bonus points to them!


Here are swatches from my first purchase mostly neutral tones, my 2nd purchase has the brighter colors. I just want to collect all of them, I know you will want to too! Take a look at my swatches you won't be disappointed.  The descriptions of the shades are taken directly from the Colour Pop website.  All pictures are taken outdoors with natural light.

**APPLICATION TIP! I took their tip and I used my fingers to apply the shadows, it works perfectly! Don't forget to screw the cap tightly when you are not using them so they don't dry out.
