We Got A Reader To Try One Of Our Favourite Eyeshadows Ever
We love it plenty, but does KULALA Beauty Clubber (and freelance makeup artist!) Airin feel the same?| June 12, 2017
Welcome to KULALA Beauty Club, where YOU our dear readers help us suss out the best in the beautysphere. This week, we brought back freelance hair and makeup artist Airin (@imairinn) to review Colourpop’s Supershock Shadows. Read her last review here.
Colourpop’s Super Shock Shadows are exactly what it sounds like: shocking and highly pigmented powders packed into a cute individual white pans. Each of it promises super soft and easy to blend colours.
Colourpop recommends that you apply the shadows using your fingers and I couldn’t agree more myself. Pressing your finger through each pan instead of a brush provides pigmented payoff and the shadow glided so easily across my skin. It’s interesting to note how it feels like cream at first, yet firms into a powder almost instantly on your fingers. The swatches I made took only a minute to set and it honestly didn’t budge even after I ran my fingers through them. As such, you may need to start blending as fast as you can before the colour sets on your lids. It’s good because it stays put, but not so good if you’re not quick enough and if your entire eye makeup consists of just Colourpop’s shadows.
Overall, I love the variety and the intensity of the colours from the range. They are definitely reasonably priced at USD$5 a pop for just a little over two grams of vibrancy. However, I highly suggest that you start with other eye shadows that have a more powder-like consistency beforehand just so that you can blend up the crease first before reaching for the Super Shock Shadow.
