I am on ColourPop eyeshadow series right now. I have already reviewed two of them – Cheap Date and Valley Girl. Rest three, which I received, got broken in transit and I had no other option but to keep them. My apologies as I do not have good pictures of them separately since they all are broken. I tried to fix them by pressing the powder, and luckily, they are in a good state to be used. Here is ‘Birthday Girl’ for you.
Price: $5 for 2.1g
Our revolutionary creme-powder eyeshadow, famous for its unique bouncy texture, delivers bold colour & fine glitter in one swipe without creasing, fading or fallout.
Close your eyes and make a wish in this light gold with silver and pink glitter.
Super Shock Shadow Our famous long-wearing crème powder formula with a unique bouncy-like texture. It’s super creamy, insanely pigmented, and has one swipe intensity with zero fallout.
For Max Coverage – Use your fingertip and tap shadow directly onto the eyelid. A flat, firm synthetic brush will also work and is perfect for detailed application close to the lash line.
To Blend – Use a fluffy synthetic brush with good movement, dip the tip into the shadow and apply with a “windshield wiper” movement throughout the crease of the eye for a soft and diffused look.
Finish – Ultra-Glitter
My Experience with ColourPop Birthday Girl Super Shock Shadow:
This is a single shadow and comes in a cute white circular box. The lid is transparent, so it is easy to spot the color. The cap closes and opens like a screw. The packaging is although cute but quite bulky. It is not travel-friendly as we all need more shadows and less space, so I will not mind moving the pot to my Z palette once, in case I am traveling with these. Also, I found one thing, if you can spot in pictures, the pan is not firmly attached to the plastic box; there is extra space in between which makes it look clumsy. The actual shadow has textured surface which is typical ColourPop shadow look.
The texture of the shadow is ‘Oh-My-Gawd’ so creamy and buttery. It is not at all powdery or rough. It glides smoothly on the skin as well, with no fallout whatsoever. The best part is that it sticks to the skin firmly, but I will not say that a primer is not needed. I am an ardent believer in primers and I will always advise to use them. It stays good for 8 hours, definitely an all-nighter. It is of buildable nature, and intensity can be controlled by the person applying it. Maximum intensity can be seen using fingertips for application.
The website describes this shadow as “light gold with silver and pink glitter”. I found this shadow to be of sheer pigmentation; it does not have a very opaque finish. It can be worn beautifully on the highest point of the eyelid to show a subtle but noticeable shine. This shadow is full of beautiful sparkles of pink and gold, and sometimes, it even gives the illusion of multidimensional. Again, it is perfect for inner corners and brow bone as well.
Pros of ColourPop Birthday Girl Super Shock Shadow:
• Perfect wedding golden
• Texture is so soft, just like butter
• Long lasting, even without primer
• No fallout
• Affordable price
Cons of ColourPop Birthday Girl Super Shock Shadow:
• Bulky packaging

• Sheer pigmentation
IMBB Rating: 4/5
