I had heard a lot about ColourPop eyeshadows and seen these cute pans online. I am a sucker for cute packaging and I ordered a few shades. Today, I will be reviewing the shade “Valley Girl” from the Super Shock range.
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: Satin.
My Take on Colourpop Super Shock Shadow Valley Girl:
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 in case I am traveling with these pots.
Also, I found one thing, if you can spot that 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 ColourPop shadow.
The texture of the shadow is “oh-my-gawd” so creamy! When I swiped my finger on the shadow, it felt like velvet (I am not exaggerating!). It is not at all powdery or rough. It glides smoothly on 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 it to be used.
The shade is icy silvery or pearl like, with very finely milled shimmer. The shimmer is so fine that it blends with the shade and does not look chunky at all. The website describes Valley Girl as a “satin vanilla with soft gold sheen.” The color is opaque in itself and covers well.
It stays good for 8 hours, definitely an “all-nighter.” A perfect shade for inner corners and brow bone highlight. 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 Valley Girl:
- Shade is amazing for inner corners and brow bone highlight.
- Texture is so soft, just like velvet.
- No fall out.
- Affordable price.
Cons of Colourpop Super Shock Shadow Valley Girl:
- Bulky packaging.
- Availability in India.
