ColourPop Sommel-yay Super Shock Shadow Duo Review & Swatches Leave a comment


ColourPop Sommel-yay Super Shock Shadow Duo Set ($12.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new, likely limited edition duo that includes a previously-released shade, Muse, and a new shade, Wine Down. This lil’ duo really reminded me of why I fell in love with ColourPop years ago; the Super Shock Shadows were such a standout formula with a mega shade range… that you just couldn’t find elsewhere. There have been similar formulas over time but very few (if any) remain on the market. These two shades really shine; they’re incredibly pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing.

Muse is a deeper, brownish-copper with moderate, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, lightly emollient texture that adhered evenly to bare skin without sheering out too readily. It stayed on well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

Formula Overview

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).

Wine Down is a deep, reddened plum with subtle, warm undertones and a pearl finish with faint sparkle throughout. It had opaque color payoff in a single stroke, which applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well along the edges without being prone to sliding around or sheering out too readily. It lasted nicely for 10 hours without fading or creasing (or fallout!).
