ColourPop Viva Eyes Super Shock Shadow Quad Review & Swatches


Viva Eyes

Colour Pop Viva Eyes Super Shock Shadow Quad ($18.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a new, limited edition foursome that features all shimmers: fuchsia, gold, teal, and orange. They were consistent with past Super Shock Shadows; they were creamy, emollient, fairly pigmented with good wear, but I did have a bit of unevenness during application with Rosa (which looked a bit less impressive in person than in photos) and Cielo (which actually looked better in person than in the close-up).

Rosa

Rosa is a rich, fuchsia pink with cool undertones and faint gold and fuchsia pearl throughout. It had opaque pigmentation that adhered fairly evenly to bare skin, though I felt like it did not apply as evenly to my lid as it did swatched on my arm–there was a bit of sheerness to it after I had blended it out, and I wasn’t able to build it back up with a second layer. The eyeshadow wore well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

Ingredients

Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Isododecane, Cyclohexasiloxane, C30-45 Alkyl Cetearyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Dimethicone/Vinyltrimethylsiloxysilicate Crosspolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Silica, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tin Oxide, Propylene Carbonate, Boron Nitride, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Carmine (CI 75470), Mica (CI 77019), Red 28 Lake (CI 45410), Red 40 Lake (CI 16035), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

Oro

Oro is a bright, medium gold with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, lightly emollient texture that applied evenly and blended out easily with fingertips but less so with brushes. I found that a brush did not seem to pick up the product as well as expected (as I usually have no trouble using brushes with the formula). This shade lasted well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

Formula Overview

$5.00/0.07 oz. – $71.43 Per Ounce

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow is a cream-based formula that comes in a multitude of shades and finishes. The more metallic shades have the most slip to them (they have a “wetter” feel), while the more matte ones have a firmer, more clay-like consistency. Almost every shade I’ve tried from ColourPop has been exceptionally long-wearing (10+ hours of wear, usually there until I remove, even 14 hours later). The pigmentation can vary from shade to shade, but the average shade is quite pigmented.

From feedback I’ve seen from readers, many love them but some don’t like them at all. They aren’t a traditional cream eyeshadow, 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 on the drier side and vary from medium to opaque in coverage, though they’re often buildable.  They can be a little hard to diffuse the edges of, though some are lovely to work with.

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 like the other finishes in the formula, but often, they are sheerer and only function well patted on top of more pigmented eyeshadows to add glitter.  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).

Cielo

Cielo is a bright, medium blue-teal with warmer, gold and green sparkle throughout. It had a smooth, creamy texture that had moderate slip but was thin and lightweight when applied. The product felt more powder-like as soon as it was applied to my lid, and I didn’t have any issues blending it out. It looked fine to me in person, but the close-up photos revealed a bit of patchiness to the color. This shade stayed on well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.

Verano

Verano is a bright, medium orange with warm, golden shimmer throughout that gave it a more pearly sheen. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and blended well along the edges without causing it to lose its opacity. The texture was lightweight, thin, and blendable without being too slippery or too dry in the pot. It wore nicely for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.
