At this stage, I feel like everyone, EVERYONE, either has something from color pop or has serious intentions to buy something from them. I thought I could ignore them, I honestly thought I could but then their products kept popping up on every social media feed imaginable, I had to give them a try.
I bought nine of their super shock eyeshadows and two lip products. The eyeshadows! oh my goodness! how I love these things. They have a formula that is best described as a mix between powder and cream, they feel boderline elastic! Their texture is identical to that of the Mac cosmetics electric cool eyeshadows, I have a serious suspicion that they are all made in the same place, lol. They even have identical packaging, but in different colors. They are so so pigmented and work well with either the fingers or makeup brushes.
The texture of the super shock eyeshadows make them almost fall out proof, almost. With the matte shadows there are no fall outs whatsoever, however when using the shimmer shadows, especially those of them that have lots of glitter in them, you will most likely get fall outs. These eyeshadows are very inexpensive, compared to the Mac electric cool eyeshadows. They sell for $5 each while the electric cool shadows sell for a whooping £14 each.

After trying out everything that I purchased from color pop, I was a bit bummed that I purchased just two lip products. I bought one Lippe pencil in pitch (very dark blackish brown) and a Lippie stix in Tootsi, which according to Colour pop is a cool toned grey beige. The lippie stix has a finish that is comparable to Mac's amplified finish, it's not matte as the brand claims. The lippie pencil is very pigmented and creamy and applies so smoothly. They both sold for $5 each and are amazing, end of story.
