Colourpop Super Shock Shadow Coconut review

Colourpop Super Shock Shadow Coconut review

As a blogger, I often buy things and hide them away until I can take proper photos. But when Colourpop’s Super Shock Shadow in Coconut arrived at my house, it wasn’t even 24 hours before I broke this beauty out of the box  …

…because, damn, it is stunning!

COCONUT is described as a bright peacock teal with a pearlized finish. It’s the most beautiful shadow I have ever laid eyes on (after MAC’s Club).

Colourpop Super Shock Shadow Coconut review 1
If you’ve never tried a Colourpop shadow, you’re definitely missing out. These are $5 each. That’s $5 for pure, vibrant pigments in a creamy, bouncy formula. Ingredients include cucumber, mango seed butter and soybean oil!

This is a fairly light swatch! I just rubbed my finger in the pot once and swiped on my arm. AMAZING pigmentation!

So the one thing that’s tricky about these is application and blending. Because of the bouncy texture, it’s best to apply with your finger, pat on, then blend with a brush.

As you can see, blending can be tough if you wait too long. But the wear time on these are amazing, I only saw minor creasing after 8 hours (over UDPP).

Shown here on the lid with a bit blended into the crease. I also used Charlotte Tilbury’s The Sophisticate palette for the crease shade (review here).

So what can $5 get you these days? Not much. But it CAN get you amazing, creamy shadows. I AM HOOKED!

Coconut is currently in stock, but I don’t expect that to last since it is often sold out. Grab it now before it goes bye, bye!



  • Yaaassss honey. That colour looks amazing on you. It really makes you eyes pop.

  • Ah, gorgeous! Such a perfect summery shade. Is this the shade you were wearing at the Charlotte Tilbury event? I remember seeing you wearing teal shadow and thinking it looked great 🙂 I really need to try ColourPop, pronto!

  • Well that’s definitely going into my next Colour Pop order! This was what you were wearing at the Charlotte Tilbury event right?

    Man that’s gorgeous on you…

  • Such a gorgeous colour! And it looks amazing on you!

  • Trysh Chipman

    Wow, that’s such a gorgeous shade. So vibrant, but you made it look so wearable!

  • my eyes hurt it’s so bold in the pan… D:

  • PRETTY BRIGHT EYESHADOW! I would never wear it but now I’m going to reconsider my makeup buying ban because I want bright creamy pigmented shadows I will never wear and only swatch one every few months when I’m clearing out. I have a problem. I want all the pretty things.

  • i would not have named that shade coconut LOL. coconut makes me think of creams or browns.

  • I agree with Jenn – coconut is a strange name for this one! But I love that shade! I haven’t taken the Colourpop plunge (tbh the shipping has scared me off) but so prettttttyyyy

  • Yay I am so happy you finally got to try these shadows. They are so awesome, I love the formula. The shimmery blue shade looks stunning on you!

    Totally lusting over it, except y’now, terrified of wearing coloured eyeshadows. And this one demands to be worn all over the lid for that ~gorgeous~ finish ;-;

  • Beautiful!! I love that you blended it with a matte brown and it looks like wearing blue show is the easiest thing in the world to pull off! We all know it’s not, but you made it look that way! This really brings out your eyes! Love ColourPop. Nillionaire has been on heavy rotation in my hacienda.
