Snake Eyes

Colour Pop Snake Eyes Super Shock Shadow Duo ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) features the return of two long-lost Super Shock Shadows–the product that the brand really got noticed for and yet has done little to develop in the last year or so.

Koosh seemed less pigmented than it was previously and was less pigmented than most Super Shock Shadows, while Ritz was similar in opacity and undertone but had more sparkle this time around (which I’m sure some will prefer). Both lasted well and were easy to apply as their textures/application process were consistent with the Super Shock Shadow formula for me.

Koosh

Koosh is a light, golden beige with cooler, silvery shimmer throughout that gave it a metallic sheen. It seemed slightly warmer than the original version I had reviewed. The texture was smooth, more emollient, and almost “wet” to the touch, as I find is consistent with the more metallic finish shades in the range.

It had more medium, buildable coverage–that was applied with a fingertip, which is intended to yield opaque results–and best applied after the initial layer had time to dry down and set. For those who like one-and-done shades, the translucency helps it work well for that particular purpose as it has a tendency to let one’s skin tone come through and give more of a wet-looking sheen. I applied it to the inner tearduct, and it seemed extra glowy throughout the day; just in a way that struck me as “more” than the usual. 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).

Ritz

Ritz is a light-medium, yellowy-brown base with flecks of silver sparkle throughout. This was another repromoted shade, and while the base was similar, the re-release had more sparkle, so it reflected light even more, which resulted in a lighter appearance (in comparison) at certain angles.

It had opaque color payoff in a single layer when applied with a fingertip, as marketed, that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out along the edges without dropping tons of sparkle. The texture was lightly emollient, smooth, and lightweight with a more powder-like feel as soon as it came into contact with my skin. It stayed on nicely for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.
