Believe in Fairies
($15.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes three shimmery shades: pink-peach, chartreuse, and deep red. All three were pigmented, blendable, and long-wearing, which was consistent with the expectations I’ve’ Shock Shadow formula!
Fly to Your Heart
Fly to Your Heart is a darker, pinky-peach base with flecks of light, sparkle, and fine gold pearls. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy to the touch, and blended out like a powder once it came into contact with my skin. It had a rich 10 hours, with faint fallout after eight hours of wear.

Shock Shadow is a cream-based formula in many shades and finishes. The more metallic shades have the most slip (they have a “wetter” feel), while the more matte ones have a firmer, more clay-like consistency. The pigmentation can vary from shade to shade, but the average shade is quite pigmented. shade I’ve’ tried from ColourPop has been exceptionally long-wearing (10+ hours of wear, usually there until I remove, even 14 hours later).
From the feedback I’ve’ seen from readers, many love them, but some don’t like them. They aren’t a traditional, 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 drier and vary from medium to opaque in coverage, though they’re often buildable. Though some are lovely to work with, they can be a little hard to diffuse the edges of.
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 as the otherin the formula. Still, often, they are more vertical and only function well patted on . 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).
