Colourpop Telepathy Super Shock Shadow Review and EOTD

Hello everybody 🙂

Colourpop Telepathy Super Shock Shadow Review and EOTD

Today I will share a very pretty and unique shade of eyeshadow  from Colourpop – Telepathy. I now own a good collection of Colourpop Cosmetics. For Colourpop, who read this blog regularly, must be knowing that I have mixed feelings for Colourpop as a brand.

No, I am not a die hard fan. Though the brand is super affordable and has huge variety in terms of products, colours and dupes too, we can’t say everything from this brand is full proof. It has its bit of failures according to me. Some ultra matte lip colours smudge and bleed.

No more negatives now. Since I adore this eyedshadow, we will now discuss this only. It is a part of collection of Kathleen Lights. And thats the reason I so wanted to get this :).

What the brand says:
It is a bright gold with a green undertone in an Ultra- Metallic finish.
How to apply:
The website suggests to use fingertip to tap shadow onto eye lid, for intense application.
If you don’t like putting fingers into your makeup, I would suggest using a fine synthetic brush, as it will work better for a more detailed, close to the lash line application.
It comes in a white jar like pot with a transparent white cap.  I found it quite sturdy and travel friendly. Remember to close the lid tightly, as leaving  the jar opened for long periods of time, may make you lose some of the magic that makes the Super Shock Shadow so amazing.

My Views on :
I just love the texture of Colourpop shadows, blushes and highlighters. They feel powdery yet creamy, great pigmentation, great colours, no fallouts.This eyeshadow is super soft and very easy to blend. I am in love with this colour.  Though it is not a pure gold but a mustard gold, with green undertone as the website claims. You may say it is a dupe of limited edition MAC eyeshadow, Brilliantly Lit from Electric Cool Collection. I found these two very similar.

The staying power of this eyeshadow is something to boast of. It stays on and on, oily lids too, no primer. I have used it in full summers and it stayed on me for whole party, say 7-8 hours, no creasing, no fading.

The quality, the quantity, all great and at $5, it obviously doesn’t hurt. I am already a fan of their super famous highlighter – Wisp, which is same formula and is just superb. Now this one, I can say, I want to add as many of these shadows as possible. These are pure love.
