The ColourPop x Raw Beauty Kristi Like a Moss Super Shock Shadow launched as part of Kristi’s collaboration with ColourPop which launched back in November.
I don’t know if it’s just me, but I thought it was maybe a year ago that the collection launched, and was really surprised it was only November when coming to write this post.
Kristi’s collab with ColourPop had a beautiful, forest theme. Everything was deep in tone, with earthy shades and packaging, and the only products I personally was tempted by, was the Super Shock Shadows.
The Eyeshadow Palette is undeniably pretty, but it’s mostly matte, and I prefer my palettes, especially deep toned palettes, to have a more even split between mattes and shimmers, but that is just down to my personal preference.
The ColourPop x Raw Beauty Kristi Like a Moss Super Shock Shadow is one of four Super Shock Shadows within the collection, with there also being Olympic, Mycelium and also Campfire, and I bought all four in one of ColourPop’s 30% site wide sales.
For all three shades of the Super Shock Shadows, Kristi chose custom packaging, which I love. The usual packaging is white for the shadows, but for this collection, Kristi chose a deep forest green, and on the clear plastic lid there’s a rose gold mushroom, which is cute.
This particular shade is described as being a metallic golden olive, which instantly had me sold. I can’t resist an olive shade, and it looked so beautiful in the photos on the ColourPop website.
In real life, the ColourPop x Raw Beauty Kristi Like a Moss Super Shock Shadow is not very olive. It’s more of a grungy gold, but it is such a pretty shade.
It’s a metallic shade, with lots of gold sparkle, and is best applied with your fingertips to intensify the metallic finish, and minimise fallout from the sparkle. It’s a gorgeous shade, and one I’m so pleased I added to my collection.
