I am on a ColourPop eyeshadow reviewing spree right now. I have already reviewed two of them – “Cheap Date” and “Valley Girl.” Three shades came broken in transit and I had no other option but to keep them. I tried to fix them by pressing the powder and luckily I am in a good state to use them ☺. Here is “Hot Tamale” for you, my favorite shade from the lot 🙂
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.
$5 for 2.1 gm.
My Experience with ColourPop Super Shock Shadow Hot Tamale:
This is a single shadow and comes in 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 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 in case I am travelling with it. 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 of any ColourPop eyeshadow.
“Hot Tamale” belongs to the “neutrals” family and the website describes this shadow as “a rich coppery brown multi-dimensional satin” shadow. We can also say it’s a brown with reddish undertones. This is my favorite shades of the five that I have reviewed from ColourPop. It is so rich and an awesome-looking shade. Also, it’s so perfect for outer corners and will be a great to pair with brown/black smokey eye. Since this has a satin finish, it looks super classy with very less glitter and shimmer.
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 without any fallout. The best part is that it sticks to the skin firmly but I will not say that a primer is not needed underneath. I believe you should always use a primer with eyeshadows. It stays good for 8 hours, and is 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 finger tips for application.
Pros of ColourPop Super Shock Shadow Hot Tamale:
- Beautiful chocolate color.
- Texture is so soft, just like butter.
- Long lasting, even without a primer underneath.
- No fall out.
- Affordable price.
Cons of ColourPop Super Shock Shadow Hot Tamale:
- Bulky packaging.
- Availability in India.
