This was my last delivery from colourpop from their sale plus free international shipping no minimum, unfortunately it was bitter sweet as the two pressed shadows were probably my favourite, the Super Shock Shadow was delivered in the wrong shade . The error was completely theirs. Instead of talking about the colours I feel sad to report that instead of making good and sending me the correct shade as it was their mistake. I was offered a coupon or refund. Now I bought during the Free Shipping as I live in Canada this is very important factor,for me to replace the shadow would cost me 3x more!! I think Colourpop is a wonderful company with great products but perhaps they don’t care about making it right and making the customer happy, instead they throw a bone at me and close the door! I felt really sad about this!!

On a good note I loved the Pressed Shadows in Going Steady a beautiful deep matte  plum colour and Note To Self which is a gorgeous matte finish that is brown / neutral/ peach .

The only Super Shock I ordered was Hydroplane my wild card a beautiful blue of medium tone but received  Dare which is a purple/ pink shimmer, it’s ok but more importantly not what I paid for!!

Colourpop Super Shock Shadows

This was my very first purchase of their Super Shock Shadows and I was completely prepared to love them as I am a fan of the lipstick already .Colourpop has the formula I love which is liquid to a powdery matte finish in the lipstick department. The shadows did not disappoint! I am relatively new to the eyeshadow part of makeup but wow these are really incredible!  Amazing crazy pigment and zero fallout !!! I can load up the brush and nothing falls, I don’t know how they do it but even with the exchange and shipping it’s fairly affordable and reasonable and the quality blows my mind. New obsession getting more and trying their pressed eyeshadow next! I ordered four colours and received two free brushes with this ordering. Which reminds me thst they are constantly having promos and creating new products constantly, hard to keep up! The colours I choose were Ignition from the Amanda Steele Collection, Central Perk, Hot Totty and Porter. I love all of them but my favourite is Central Perk, a dark burgundy matte. Porter is a tad lighter and a a slight shimmer to it. Another really great colour. Ignition is light lavender shimmer and is a nice lid colour for the summer I am thinking .Hot Totty was my wild card , I was drawn to it online but thought it might too bright. It is bright but completely wearable all the time. Can be used in the crease or lid and or amped up to be worn brighter.I received a shader and blending brushes both of which work beautifully with these shadows. I am very pleased with this purchase from Colourpop!!
