ColourPop x Halo Top Mint Chip Super Shock Pigment Duo Review & Swatches

Colour Pop Mint Chip Super Shock Pigment Duo is a new, limited edition duo that features a pale, lime green and a shimmering white together. Tassel was workable, and for someone who wanted a pop of white on the inner tearduct or patted on top of another shade to brighten it slightly, it did its job, but Semi Sweet was fussy, and I struggled to get it to look anywhere near decent.

Semi Sweet is a pale, lime green with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of silver sparkle. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a smooth, emollient texture that was thin and performed more like a powder as soon as it came into contact with my skin (fingertip or eyelid). It didn’t apply as evenly as most Super Shocks have for me in the past, and I felt like it had a tendency to look almost chalky when blended out. The wear was as expected–10 hours strong with no fading or creasing–but the coverage and look of it was a letdown.

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.
