Product Description

These high-impact ultra-glittery shadows have a metallic base, are extremely long-wearing, and can be used as a base, alone, or as a topper. Cruisin’ down the street in my true gold sprinkled with silver glitter.

We somehow bottled up high shine liquid metal, loaded it with glitter, and created an actual supernova for your eyes. This water-infused, super longwearing liquid shadow is extremely versatile and can work for so many looks, whether you want an all over base color, a touch of glitter, or extreme metallic foil. This high coverage and high impact shadow will send you into hyperspace….no fall out included.

Review for: Walk of Fame, Hard to Empress more...
I was SO excited to get these when they launched and SO heartbroken when I used them. I applied them over a primed eye (too faced eyeshadow insurance).  I used the applicator, that was the first mistake. It applied too much product so I had to use my finger to spread it around and to take off the excess. On my other eye, I used my finger to tap it on. It still just went on too thick and felt heavy and thick on my lid. I let it dry and finished my makeup as planned. Later in the day after it had REALLY dried, it chunked up. It just became hard, flaky, and chunky and I had pieces falling from my lid. I was SO disappointed because the colors are GORGEOUS. I'm going to give it another try and try applying over shadow and see if that helps. If it does, I'll edit my review.


I applied over shadow and nope, same outcome. I applied over shadow using my finger and it just dried to this sheer, barely there glitter. I didn't like that, so I used a small brush to apply another thin layer and wet, it looked gorgeous. When it dried, it was thick, cakey, chunky, and flaky. SO disappointed.

Review for: Walk of Fame more...
Wow is this product good or what?! For $6.00 you can’t beat the product and what you get. The colors and pigment are great, vibrant and last all day long. I do have a slight fall out because it has glitter but nothing to a point where your entire face looks glittery. It compares to a popular glitter eyeshadows from a high end brand and it performs just as well. I love the fact that it comes in a tube with a wand so you don’t have to go through glitter glue or mixing medium to apply glitter. This makes the job very easy

Review for: Moon Lit more...
I was hesitant when I first swatched this, it wasn’t giving me the best pigmentation. It was very shimmery and duochromatic. I put these on my eyes and was blown away. I really love the applicator, it’s very soft and applies the product evenly and precisely. I ended up really loving this shadow, it dried down quickly and lasted through and entire day of shopping and prom dress searching. I highly recommend these, and if you are considering buying these, go for it, it’s a great price for a lot of product.

Supernova shadows look really good at first but since my lids are so creasy, it flaked so much. I recommend having a shadow underneath so you don't look crazy like me. Also use a brush! Overall, the colors are unique and you will get complimented all the time, even by people who know nothing about makeup which is nice! The picture is what it looks like after six hours of wear.

Review for: Dragon, Moon Lit more...
I want to love this, and plan on continuing to try it before I condemn it...But this stuff cracks, breaks up, and creases like CRAZY. The colors are stunning, super pigmented. I've used them as under eye shadow and eye liner, they worked well for both. But on the lid? I was honestly embarrassed of my eye look after an hour or two. I've only used each shade once or twice, so we'll see...So far, these are a miss, for me.

I still love you, Colourpop. <3

Review for: Walk of Fame, Firecracker, Dragon more...
I was very excited to try these. I like a glitter look but without all the mess... they look great when you put them on but within minutes they start cracking and within an hour are falling onto my face and by the end of the night more than half is off onto my cheeks and lashes and the rest just looks like a mess on my lid. I love colourpop but i was disappointed with this product. I was hoping it would save others money to not buy stila... but I would stick with the stila eye shimmer/glitter for now.

Review for: Dragon more...
$7. Great dupe for the stila magnificent metal eyeshadow. Pigmented!! Those are the pros for the supernova shadow. I was so excited to get it because I hope I would be the same quality as the stila but I was so wrong!!! As soon as the shadow dried, it cracked all over the my lids. I would not buy this again.

I am a huge fan of the Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow liquid eyeshadows.  These ColourPop Supernova shadows are a fantastic DUPE!!  And the price point ($6) makes it even better!  They go on easy, blend out like a dream, and don't crease!  Not to mention the amazing glitter/metal glam it gives you!  I hope they come out with more colors soon!

Honestly I don’t know if I just got a bad batch or what but this particular shade didn’t work out for me. When you pull the applicator out of the tube there is barely any product on the applicator. The color is beautiful but it was work to get this on my eyes. After it dried down it instantly started flaking off when I was blending other shadows. I would just recommend another shade.

I love this! So gorgeous. I have it in three colors: Dragon, Walk of Fame, and Firecracker. They go on a little watery at first but dries down nicely. Very easy to use, super shimmery and glittery. In my honest opinion, this is a steal for only $7.00!
