The ColourPop Supernova Shadows are $7 each and there are currently 5 shades available, but I am sure they will expand on this dependent on consumer reaction. When I first heard about these I got especially excited because I thought finally our prayers have all been answered and there is a drugstore dupe of the Stila Magnificent Metals (seriously Makeup Revolution what are you waiting for?). Keep reading to see if I think these are a contender, all swatches are below and I will link the full reviews so you can find them and decide for yourselves if they are worth it. As you all know, I am on a spending ban for obvious reasons. I have slipped up here and there but come on I am a blogger I have to blog about something but I have completely forbidden myself from purchasing anything from the States. I know the second I place an order and pay a week's rent in customs and shipping fees they will be sold on Beauty Bay or Cult Beauty and my heart and bank account just can't take that shit anymore. I hope you don't mind me talking about new products without purchasing them with cold hard invisible cash but if you do I can only apologise and tell you this is temporary. I plan on being real rich real soon. Back to the Supernova shaodws, what a cool name, they are vegan and cruelty free, packaged just like a lip gloss with a wand applicator and clear tube.

Claims: Water-infused, long-wearing, high impact liquid glitter eyeshadows, can be worn alone or a top coat. Apply with brush or finger. No fall out.

Formula: Extremely reflective glittery liquid cream shadows that once dry don't budge. Intense colour payoff, good longevity, unfortunately some fallout and some crumbling. 

SwatchesWalk of Fame (a champagne gold with silver flecks of glitter); Dragon (vibrant copper with bright silver and pink flecks of glitter); Hard to Empress (a warm rich red with gold duochrome and gold and silver glitter); Firecracker (looks very similar to Hard to Empress but this is a cool-toned deeper burgundy red with gold duochrome again and silver, gold and green glitter, I don't see any green personally) and Moon Lit (my favourite of the bunch, bright purple with pink, teal and violet glitter, so stunning).

Dupe Status: Definitely closer than most drugstore offerings but still not quite there yet, the colours are very different to the Stila Magnificent Metals offerings and thus these don't pack the punch of the Magnificent Metals because the base pigment here is so strong, definitely outweighing the glitter, whereas Stila's are as much glitter as they are base. For the reasonable price I think these are a great compromise and the colours are stunning. There might be some crumbling and fallout but some people experienced this with the Stila Magnificent Metals and they are £23.

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post and I would love to know what your favourite shade of the bunch is? Do you think they are comparable to the Stila Magnificent Metals? Are you tempted to buy any? Leave all your thoughts in the comments below.

  2. They don't look the same as the Stila to me which is more glittery and the Colourpop one looks more metallic to me. Having said that, I love the look of them and I would happily get a couple of them xxx

  3. The Stila ones are more glittery, which I found a bit too much to be honest. I've seen the ColourPop ones swatched by youtuber Shae from That Girl Shae, and I really liked the look of these. Custom fees are a pain, and has prevented me also from ordering more from ColourPop. Thank you for sharing, Kiran. Xx

  4. Oh my, I never knew these colourpop ones were even a thing! They look so mesmerizing xx

  5. These look really nice! I have three of the Stila Shimmer eyeshadows and five of their Glitter eyeshadows. Both formulas are absolutely stunning! But if these are similar I would love to try xx

  7. I have not seen or tried Stila's before so I don't really know if they are a dupe. But these colours are gorgeous!! I'll have to look into them more. Thanks for sharing!

  8. I'm not sure about these liquid eyeshadows, I have a couple and most are just okay to me. I prefer normal powder or cream eyeshadows.
