At this point I think everyone has at least heard of Colourpop. I have quite a collection of their goodies I’ve been purchasing over the last several months, and they have a nice range of shadows, highlighters, blushes, lip products, and most recently, eyeliners. Not only do they have a nice selection, but their prices are some of the best around. I received some samples to share with my readers, and tonight I have the Colourpop Best Of Super Shock Shadow Mile High Collection to share with you.
The Colourpop Best Of Super Shock Shadow Mile High Collection is a kit that contains 6 neutral shadows that would work on most skin tones. If you wanted to dive in to Colourpop, but didn’t know where to start, their kits are great to check out. From there, you can go in and pick and choose individual shades you like.
The Colourpop Super Shock Shadows do take a little getting use to with the texture. They have a dense, mousse like feel, and apply almost creamy but they do dry down and set to a drier finish. I generally use my finger for application and blending (works best for me) but you do need certain brushes for them. Some brushes won’t pick them up or apply them properly. When I do use a brush, I find denser brushes with shorter bristles work best.
I actually purchased their tie-dye shadows and Churro highlighter earlier today, and they are selling out quick (I think 2 are already sold out)
All 6 shadows come nestled in this cute Colourpop box, and when you open it, there is a small mirror on the lid, which is good for travel. Each one is snuggled in it’s own little slot, so they don’t move around if you do travel with it.
Let’s take a closer look at the Colourpop Best Of Super Shock Shadow Mile High Collection, and the individual colors you receive with it.
Cricket is a smoky mid-tone plum with warm and cool highlights of soft glitter.
La La is a true rose gold in an ultra metallic finish.
Mittens is a deep warm brown with a red violet undertone leaving a matte finish.
Nillionaire is a warm bronze with tons of gold and multi colored microglitter in a metallic finish.
So Quiche is a soft olive with a highly reflective gold and pink violet glittery duo chrome metallic finish.
So Quiche is my favorite of the 6 shades and really brings out the green flecks in my eyes.
Truth is a neutral light beige with a warm satin finish. This shade is my perfect lid color for days I want something on my eyes, but I want to keep it light. It also pairs well for me with all 5 of the other shades in this group.
Colourpop Best Of Super Shock Shadow Mile High Collection Overview
This is a great starter set to get into Colourpop shadows. The colors are all well pigmented, and it gives you a nice range to play with to see how you like their shadows. I actually own about 20 other Colourpop shadows and haven’t run into any issues with them, but like I said, the texture and application does take a little getting use to. I wasn’t aware of it my first time (about a year ago) and went to put my brush into the shadow and it sunk down in it. So don’t add a lot of pressure when you go to use them or you’ll freak out a little like I did. It doesn’t take much pressure to pick up color.
I do prefer application with my finger, but as I said at the top, I find denser, shorter bristled brushes to work best if I do use a brush.
Where To Buy: Colourpop Website
Colourpop single shadows are priced at $5.00, so you do save $5.00 on this kit.
Colourpop just recently (on July 12th) started shipping internationally as well! They now ship everywhere EXCEPT China and Turkey. I know that will make a lot of International readers happy.
