In this blog post, I’ll share Colourpop Highlighter swatches from the well-know Super Shock highlighter formula. Back in the days, Colourpop launched Super Shock Shadows as their first products and once this eyeshadow formula was very loved by the beauty community, they’ve expanded their line. The Colourpop Super Shock Highlighters were born and boy are we happy about that!
Colourpop was born, raised, and made with love in Los Angeles and founded in 2014 by Seed Beauty. Colourpop prides itself on being wallet-friendly and bunny approved. They test their products in the nicest way possible, leaving fur babies to be fur babies and experimenting on people instead (the people at ColourPop HQ to be exact!).
Being wallet-friendly means that most of their products retail somewhere between $6-$18 where you’ll pay $18 for a 12-pan eyeshadow palette. That’s a good deal right? They’re expanding their products and they’re now selling 30-pan eyeshadow palettes for $34, another steal!
If you know Colourpop, you’ll also know that they’re launching new collections every week. It’s something people love or hate. But hence to this, they have a lot of variety of products, colors, and formulas.
In today’s blog post I’m going more in-depth on the Colourpop Super Shock Highlighters formula, sharing ingredients and my thoughts. Moreover, I’ll be showing Colourpop Highlighter swatches from all the shades I own and share which shade is my favorite Super Shock Highlighter and which shade is my least favorite. Last but not least, I’m going to share how to apply the Colourpop highlighters at the end of this post.
Colourpop Super Shock Highlighters
Colourpop is well known for its Super Shock Shadows as well as its Super Shock Highlighters. Most of the beauty lovers out there probably own at least one of them. The Super Shock Highlighters have a crème powder texture, is supposed to be long-wearing, very buildable, and should blend smoothly. Give yourself a healthy glow or make sure you’re blinding people with these highlighters!
The three colors I own and which we’re reviewing today are:
- Flexitarian: intense icy white champagne.
- Smoke n Whistles: cool-toned pink champagne with silver highlights.
- Hippo: soft cool-toned icy lavender.
The Colourpop Super Shock Highlighters retail for $8 each and contain 0.15 oz / 4.2 g. Colourpop is cruelty-free and vegan.
Swing both ways in this intense white champagne. This icy champagne highlight will give you a gorgeous glow in our most iconic formula, Super Shock. Bouncy, buildable, blendable, and so buttery soft, you have to feel it to believe it.
This is Colourpop’s best selling highlighter.

Colourpop Highlighter Swatches
The Colourpop Highlighter swatches look great in my opinion. They swatch so easily, are very buttery and very glowy as well. I love how you can easily mix and match the shades to create your own shade as well. My favorite one is Smoke n Whistles, number two is Flexitarian and number three is Hippo.
The formula feels very buttery when you touch it, as well as soft and creamy. Due to this formula, it’s easy to blend it into the cheeks and it’ll leave an instant healthy glow. Fingertip application will provide the highest amount of coverage, and for a more sheer look, I suggest using a flat synthetic cheek/foundation brush or a duo fiber brush. A flat synthetic brush will give more coverage and the duo fiber brush will give a more airbrushed effect.
Moreover, the Colourpop Highlighters are indeed long-wearing. They’ll easily stay on all day!
My Thoughts on the Colourpop Highlighters
All three shades are very beautiful! The most wearable one is in my opinion Smoke N Whistles. Hippo is beautifully lavender looking but I wouldn’t wear this to work. Flexitarian is very blinding which I love but not for a normal day to work. However, they’re absolutely stunning and I love them all three!
If you’re looking for a blinding glow, go for Flexitarian. More looking for a natural glow go for Smoke N Whistles. Looking for something different, go for Hippo. It’s also possible to combine the shades together so you can create your own signature shade if you want to!
If this formula doesn’t sound like something you would love and look for another type of formula, Colourpop also has Loose Powder Highlighters. This might be more of your thing if you prefer powder products.
