ColourPop Party Talk Super Shock Extreme Shadow Set Review & Swatches

Party Talk

Colour Pop Party Talk Super Shock Extreme Shadow Set ($30.00 for 0.38 oz.) is a new, limited edition take on the Super Shock formula, which ColourPop “mixed [with] with every pearl and pigment in [their] lab, then injected it with multidimensional glitters.” All six shades are “not intended for use in the immediate eye area” from a combination of the larger glitter and/or pigments/dyes. They are filled with larger, chunkier glitter particles with medium to full coverage bases.

I think the most realistic way these are going to be worn is on the eyes, even though ColourPop includes a warning on the back of each pot. They are hit and miss as cheek colors, and the formula doesn’t lend itself to being really diffused and spread out over a larger area like the body. For the purposes of the ratings, they are rated based on how they performed as cheek colors, but I have included commentary on how they wore on eyes. They’re really cool shades, though after trying them on my eyes, I think that the brand’s glitter finish (which is safe for the eyes) is more complex and sparkly; the larger glitter can sometimes look like dirt/sand/texture rather than “ooh, sparkly!!”

While I haven’t personally found anything about a status change in cosmetic glitter usage in the US (cosmetic, PET glitters appear to be fine to use in EU), a few mainstream brands have released them and have labeled them for usage on the eyes, so I’m not sure what’s changing behind the scenes–no brand owners would respond when I inquired about it.  Here are a few recent releases that contain Polyethylene Terephthalate but are touted for use on eyes: Urban Decay’s Glitter Gels, Glossier Play Glitter Gelees, and Tarte High Tides & Good Vibes Palette.  ColourPop has released Pressed Glitters but have listed them as for body/hair (and not for eyes).

I have been struggling to test some of these glitter products, as I do find I am more prone to watery eyes whenever I attempt to wear some of the more glitter heavy products; light fallout can sometimes be enough where I have to remove my makeup because my eyes water enough to well around my eyelid/lash lines and then cause more product to get into my eyes. Occasional use is reasonable, but I’m less comfortable about using this level of glitter all week long. Based on the number of glitter-heavy products releasing right now, I might have to step back from them as a group–they just rarely work decently as a cheek highlighter/blush, and I think my testing time is better prioritized toward more viable cheek colors. I’ve had to do this with stronger, lip plumping products (as they often caused my lips to swell, not in a good way, and even bleed).

Party Party

Party Party is a medium-dark lavender with strong, warm pink undertones and a mega-ton of chunky, purple glitter. This one had so much glitter in it that it was difficult to apply the product, even when I used fingertips to pat and press it on, as so many pieces stuck to my fingertip so what translated was more of a “medium” amount of glitter. The base color had semi-opaque pigmentation but was harder to blend out, especially on cheeks where the unevenness was more apparent. There was light fallout and traveling after eight hours of wear.

Partly Cloudy

Party Cloudy is a bright, yellow base with larger glitter that bounced between bright, yellow gold and grass green. The metallic finish helped to accentuate the glitter particles, and it seemed to prevent them from looking sandy/gritty when light wasn’t reflecting off of the particles. It had opaque pigmentation and applied with minimal fallout. The color blended out decently as a cheek highlighter/blush, though it had an almost greenish cast. The base color lasted for over eight hours, but there was light fallout after seven and a half hours of wear and some particles had traveled beyond where I had initially placed them as well.

Can’t Party Wait

Can’t Party Wait is a light-medium pink with a larger, glittery finish that seemed to have a mix of gold, pink, and holographic glitter. It had good pigmentation that applied fairly evenly to bare skin but had a bit of fallout when I worked with it on my eyelid. The texture felt drier to the touch, but the underlying base color seemed to have the slip I’d expect from the formula. As a cheek product, it was hard to disperse the glitter evenly on my cheek, and it didn’t always reflect light back as well, so sometimes my skin just looked rough from the raised areas where the glitter sat. On my eyes, the base color lasted for awhile, but I had to remove after seven hours of wear due to fallout.

Sorry for Partyin’

Sorry for Partyin’ had a medium-dark, navy blue base with larger, purple glitter. The base felt rather emollient, while the larger glitter added a grittier element to the feel of it (to the touch, at least). The color went on decently, but it was hard to control and place the glittery bits in an even “spread” of it on my skin. Trying to apply and diffuse the color as a cheek product did not go well-it was patchy and uneven with glitter arranged in a scattered pattern. There was light fallout/movement from the glitter within seven and a half hours of wear.

Party Plan

Party Plan is a medium, reddish-brown base with flecks of copper glitters and smaller sparkles. It had opaque pigmentation with a smooth, lightly emollient texture, and it seemed to have the least amount of glitter within the set. The product applied decently with some blendability, though it was infinitely more usable on the eyes as an eyeshadow than attempting to really diffuse and soften the edges on my cheeks. There was noticeable glitter migration after seven and a half hours on me.

Party Shop

Party Shop is a bright, fuchsia pink base with flecks of blue and gold glitter. The glitter was a little finer compared to most of the other shades, though there was still a fair amount of it. The texture felt drier, grittier to the touch (not a surprise), and it was hard to apply the product evenly, whether on lids or cheeks, because the glitter had a tendency to separate from the base color. This resulted in the glitter being in places that weren’t intended, and it seemed particularly prone to fallout and migration over the time I tested it for
