ColourPop Viva Eyes Super Shock Shadow Quad Review & Swatches


Viva Eyes

Colour Pop Viva Eyes Super Shock Shadow Quad is a new, limited edition foursome that features all shimmers: fuchsia, gold, teal, and orange. They were consistent with past Super Shock Shadows; they were creamy, emollient, fairly pigmented with good wear, but I did have a bit of unevenness during application with Rosa (which looked a bit less impressive in person than in photos) and Cielo (which actually looked better in person than in the close-up).


Rosa is a rich, fuchsia pink with cool undertones and faint gold and fuchsia pearl throughout. It had opaque pigmentation that adhered fairly evenly to bare skin, though I felt like it did not apply as evenly to my lid as it did swatched on my arm–there was a bit of sheerness to it after I had blended it out, and I wasn’t able to build it back up with a second layer. The eyeshadow wore well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.


Oro is a bright, medium gold with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, lightly emollient texture that applied evenly and blended out easily with fingertips but less so with brushes. I found that a brush did not seem to pick up the product as well as expected (as I usually have no trouble using brushes with the formula). This shade lasted well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.


Cielo is a bright, medium blue-teal with warmer, gold and green sparkle throughout. It had a smooth, creamy texture that had moderate slip but was thin and lightweight when applied. The product felt more powder-like as soon as it was applied to my lid, and I didn’t have any issues blending it out. It looked fine to me in person, but the close-up photos revealed a bit of patchiness to the color. This shade stayed on well for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.


Verano is a bright, medium orange with warm, golden shimmer throughout that gave it a more pearly sheen. The eyeshadow had opaque color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin and blended well along the edges without causing it to lose its opacity. The texture was lightweight, thin, and blendable without being too slippery or too dry in the pot. It wore nicely for 10 hours without fading or creasing on me.
