ColourPop On the Wing Super Shock Shadow Duo Review & Swatches

ColourPop On the Wing Super Shock Shadow Duo ($12.00 for 0.07 oz.) is designed to complement the Fine Feathered palette and includes one repromote (Bubbly) and one new cream eyeshadow. Both shades were pigmented, easy to work with, and long-wearing–no complaints!

Bubbly is a light-medium pink with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage. The texture was moderately emollient but quick to dry down to a more powder-like finish once it came into contact with my skin. It lasted 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).

Plume is a medium-dark, rosy copper with subtle, warm undertones and an intense, sparkling metallic finish. The texture was more emollient but still had great adhesion with full pigmentation delivered in a single layer. I found it was easier to apply with a flat, synthetic brush initially, and then use a fingertip or a fluffy brush to diffuse the edges as this ensured it did not slide around and become a bit uneven. It stayed on well for 10 hours without fading or creasing.
