Well I finally did it. I caved and bought one…
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).
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!
