I thought I’d start a series of posts about my favorite things. After all, I’ve been whining about Ro and being a SAHM far too much for the title of this blog — ‘Mary’s Loves’. What better way to lighten things up than to talk about frivolous material objects that I can’t get enough of? Yay!
May I introduce you to the best cream shadows that don’t require a brush and somehow have an intense long lasting color (probably loads of chemicals)? Ladies and gentlemen, I give you ColourPop Super Shock Shadows. I had never heard of the brand until I received a collection of four for my birthday. I had been looking for a matte eyeshadow forever, and was stoked to find that one of them was a neutral matte. These shadows are a type of cream that doesn’t require a makeup brush, so I dipped my finger in and pressed some onto my eyelids. I was in love!
I don’t have a ton of time to do makeup in the morning. My routine looks a little like this:
- swipe some eyeshadow on
- apply some liner to my lashline
- do a few quick swishes of mascara
- take bronzer and basically cover my cheeks with it (this one is the one I usually find I’ve over done once I get into the sunlight)
- smear on some lip balm
- *if I have time I’ll brush some eyebrow powder in place so that I don’t have invisible brows
Imagine my delight when I find out that I can make step 1 even shorter by not hunting for my eyeshadow brush. Save 4 seconds? Fantastic!
The best and most addicting part of all is that this line is basically $5 a pop. I may just have to order a ton of other colors. From what I can tell, you can only order online since I can’t seem to find a brick and mortar shop. I can’t vouch for their other products, (though the blush and highlighters look tempting) but trust me when I say these shock shadows are vibrant, easy, and affordable!
