ColourPop Super Shock Shadow Swatches - Part 1!

Hey everyone out there in blog land! Do you miss me? I know I am a total and complete space case when it comes to my blog of late, however I'm pretty into the idea of revitalizing it! Let's get some posts up in this bish!

I gotta admit, I kinda spend more time on makeup than nails lately, so I'm hoping to try out some more makeup posts for the blog. And never fear, I do still love all things nails, I just have practically zero time to do my own between working full time plus grad school plus nail clients plus actually trying to have a social life sometimes. But I'm working on getting back into it! I'm not up on all the latest nail crazes, but I'm sure with a little help from you guys, I'll get there!

So today I've got a makeup post ready for ya! I recently fell in love with a new product so now I'm gonna share it with all of you.


If you've been living under a makeup rock, you might not have heard of ColourPop Cosmetics. They have been blowing up on Instagram and YouTube and practically everywhere else. And for good reason, too. They've got a beautiful range of eye shadows and lip products, and soon there will be blushes in the family as well.
What makes their shadows different is the formula. The ColourPop Super Shock Shadows are like this totally different and unique texture that is a cream-to-powder type of deal. It's actually squishy. You have to touch it yourself to understand. And the ultra mega bonus is that they're all $5 a pop. FIVE BUCKS! That's not even a good sub at Subway.

I have to say, when I first saw people obsessing over these I was like "Nahhh, this girl doesn't need another product to hoard. I'll pass." But the more I saw pictures and videos I was like YAASSS NEEED. The pigment is so intense, and the glittery ones are so stinkin' beautiful. I couldn't resist any longer. I bought ten.


Each shadow comes in a little box, and you have to keep the individual pots closed tightly when not in use because they can dry out and no one wants that.


And now it is swatchey time! I've included flash and natural light photos for some sparkle realness. Each swatch is just one small swipe, because like I said, the pigment is just out of control.


Tassel - A very glittery white shade. You could put this anywhere for BAM sparkle. Highlight like mad.

Meow - This one is my favorite. It's impossible to capture all the sparkle going down in here. It's a dark silver base and it reflects with pink and purple and maybe even blue glitter. When I put this on my eyes for the first time, I spent the next half hour looking at it. Ooh aah sparkle yes wow. You need this on your face like yesterday.

Ibiza - Blue! Beautiful vibrant turquoise blue. Not as sparkly as the others, more pigment-based, but still glitters like a damn goddess. Gimme.

Dare - Be still my heart. Sparkly vibrant purple. Need I say more?

Bae - I'm pretty sure that this shade was the reason I broke down and bought some. It's a bruised purpley red, with a turquoise duochrome flash. It totally transforms in the light and it's so cool.


Hustle - Another reason I had to order. A burgundy matte with pigment like whoa. I can't stop loving warm eyeshadow looks and this is a great shade for that.

Effect - A deep teal matte with insane pigment. Just a beautiful color. So dense and creamy.

Bill - Talk about creamy. This one even feels creamier than the others. I figured I had to get one neutral color. Who doesn't love a good nude?

Cricket  - Sparkle time. Do you see this? A smokey plum-brown with just so much glitter. So beautiful. Take your usual everyday Naked palette look, and then add this on the lid? Unreal.

Sequin - More glitter. More. This is a very metallic copper with all your sparkle needs.

What do you guys think of these amazing shadows? Can you believe they are $5? Would you like to see more? Yes? Great, because I have a trick up my sleeve.
Even though these are my only Super Shock shades as of now, my amazing pal Therese has a whole bunch more. And she is going to swatch them for us all! And I'll be posting them here. ColorPop has such an amazing range of colors and I'm pumped to be able to do a whole series of posts. We will even include some of their Lippie Stix somewhere along the line. Stoked!

So for now, I leave you with this subtle ColourPop eye look I posted on my Instagram. See you guys again soon!

  2. I feel like nail polish is the gateway drug to make up posts because I've been doing the same thing, lol. And I'm freaking obsessed with ColourPop. I want all of the shadows and lippies and probably blushes too. Dammit.

  8. بحث عسر و حرج زنان یکی از مباحث مهم دادگاه خانواده است که به طلاق عسر و حرج معروف است. هر چیزی که موجبات مشقت و تنگدستی زوجه را در زندگی فراهم نماید عسر و حرج محسوب می شود و می تواند موجبات طلاق عسر و حرج را برای زوجه فراهم کند. عسر و حرج یک امر کلی است و نمی توان برای آن مصادیقی تعیین کرد. بنابراین مواردی که دادگاه ها تشخیص بدهند از موارد عسر و حرج به حساب می‌آید
