ColourPop Flower Child & In Harmony Super Shock Shadows Reviews & Swatches


Flower Child

Colour Pop Flower Child Super Shock Shadow ($6.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light-medium gold with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was best applied at that level of coverage or sheered out (more like a layering shade or to add some brightness to the inner tear duct).

The texture felt moderately emollient to the touch, almost wet, and turned to a powder-like finish when it came into contact with my skin. The eyeshadow applied well pressed and gently diffused along the edges with a synthetic brush. It wore well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.07 oz. – $85.71 Per Ounce

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).

In Harmony

Colour Pop In Harmony Super Shock Shadow ($6.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a deeper gold with strong, warm undertones (almost leaning orange-toned) paired with a sparkling, metallic finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff, which was buildable with a second layer to get to more opaque coverage.

The texture was moderately emollient, so it was more prone to sheering out. I’d recommend patting or tapping into place, letting it set slightly (a few seconds), and then diffuse or blend out the edges while ensuring the coverage level desired. It stayed on well for 10 hours without fading or creasing noticeably.
