Purple Colourpop Super Shock Shadows

Thursday 18 May 2017

When I placed my recent order from Colourpop one of the things I really wanted to pick up was more of their purple super shock shadows. I love purple eye shadow with my green eyes but hadn't bought any from them, so this time around I grabbed four!

I love the formula of the super shock shadows, I know it's not for everyone because people struggle with the creamy texture of it, but I love it. I find they have great staying power and feel really comfortable to wear. The colour payoff is always good, and they are super build-able too. 

If you do struggle with applying these, I recommend a more solid brush rather than something too fluffy. When I bought these Colourpop were offering free brushes with every two shadows so I picked up some that I think will work well with these shadows. Colourpop's brushes are all cruelty free too!

This is 'Dare' which is a metallic. It's a very bright purple with a lovely pinky shimmer to it.

This is 'Lace'. which has a satin finish. It's a deep eggplant purple.

This is 'Envy' and it's an ultra glitter, part of their holographic range. It's a black filled with stunning violet glitter that really catches the light.

'Stereo' is described as a blackened purple with gold and pink and is again from the ultra glitter range. The combination of colours in this shadow give it more of a bronze feel than purple, and it was the least true to the website description in my opinion.

Left to right - Dare, Lace, Stereo and Envy. 

All of these swatches are done with my fingers, and are one swipe. You can really see how good the colour pay off is! Dare is an absolute delight, it is so neon and I cannot wait to wear this. Lace is a colour I think I'll get a lot of wear out of, I often use the super shock shadows as eye liner and this will definitely be a shade I use for that. You can see that Stereo is that bit more bronze, but the pink glitter really shines through. Envy is something I've never seen before, I love it! The glitter is really striking and I think you could use this in a really dramatic smokey eye.

Colourpop have had a few sales lately, so expect a few more blogs of their products coming soon!

Much love,
