Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Birthday Boy was an anniversary release, and was provided free with a purchase. It’s a gray-silver sparkly shadow, with somewhat of a brown base. Part of my purchase was ColourPop Ultra Matte Chilly Chili ($6.00), which has become a lippie that I reach for constantly.
Before I decided on Chilly Chili, I had seen so many swatches, but none of them look like what it actually looks like on me. On my dark skin, it acts more as a nude color for me. It’s described as a muted plummy brown, but on me it’s more of a pinkish brown. I happen to be obsessed with it at the moment!
I used lip balm before using Chilly Chili to help my lips stay lubricated throughout that day. Chilly Chili stays on my lips all day through eating and drinking, and I am happy to report that Birthday Boy lasted 8 hours before creasing slightly, with no primer. I do love that the shadow is buildable and if you want to go all out disco ball, you certainly can. I was on my way to work, so that was not an option for me lol. I opted for a sheered out layer.
While you can’t purchase Birthday Boy, as it was a limited edition release, you can get your hands on Chilly Chili. This will definitely be a rebuy for me!
