ColourPop Sunrise Hike & Rocky Start Super Shock Shadows Reviews & Swatches


Sunrise Hike

ColourPop Sunrise Hike Super Shock Shadow ($6.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, sparkling lighter gold with strong, warm peachy undertones and a sparkling finish that looked glossy and slightly wet. It did seem to have a more translucent base, so for those who want full opacity, this might not be the one, but for those who like using cream eyeshadows as a topper, brightener, etc., this one is lovely.

  • Semi-opaque pigmentation in one layer
  • Lightly emollient, lightweight, thin but spreadable
  • Applied evenly and blended out with ease
  • Long-wearing (10 hours without creasing)

Formula Overview

$6.00/0.07 oz. – $85.71 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).
