More ColourPop Super Shock Shadows
A little about these shadows before I go on to the swatches. The formula on these shadows is completely unique and super soft and highly pigmented. They recommend that for best application you pat it on your lids with your fingers, but don't press down too hard on the shadow pot because they are really soft and creamy but they aren't a cream, they are a powder shadow. You can use a soft brush also to apply but I've heard recommendations that you should use a synthetic brush like the Real Techniques brushes (those are the brushes I use).
The first batch of shadows I am going to show you are from the Limited Edition Holiday Collection "Not A Box Of Chocolates". It is still available but I don't know for how much longer it will be available. There are six shadows in this collection, a couple of them ColourPop has decided to make a part of the permanent collection. The Collection comes in a cute little gift box that really wouldn't need any wrapping if you were going to give this as a gift. It is $30 but that still equals out to $5 per shadow (just like the regular price of the shadows). In this collection the shades are Halo, Tinsel, Sleigh, Drift, Partridge, and Doe-a-Deer. Drift and Partridge were made permanent this year.
The next one I purchased is Ibiza. Ibiza is a bright turquoise with a silver and gold duo chrome finish. This one is gorgeous!! I have worn this recently and I just lined my lower lash line with it and man did it make my blue eyes pop!
