ColourPop Blushes: Review + Swatches

IMG_4951

Hi, my name is Kayla and I’m addicted to ColourPop Cosmetics.
It’s true. I know I have mentioned them on my blog, on my youtube channel, in looks…and I’m sure that people are possibly tired of hearing about them. However, I know there are people that aren’t because they know that this brand is truly worth the hype, and it’s not often that I say that.

So, when I saw that they were releasing blushes I knew I was going to buy some.
If you’re unfamiliar with ColourPop, they are a brand based out of California. They are cruelty free, and I have recently discovered that most of their products are vegan. They are also incredibly affordable. Their eyeshadows and lipsticks are $5.
Their blushes are $8, but there is a ton more product in them.

For comparison:

Left is a super shock shadow and right is a blush

As you can see, the blush is more than double the size of the shadow, so $8 is still a steal!
I ordered 4 so I could get free shipping (free US shipping at $30).

Texture These feel a lot like the super shock shadows. Very creamy to the touch, yet they are powders. It’s some sort of sorcery, I swear. It does not take a lot to get pigmentation with these. Trust me, a little will go a long way.

Application The suggested application is with fingers, but if you’re anything like me putting your hands all over your face isn’t ideal. I’m happy to say that these also apply well with a brush. I used a Real Techniques stippling brush and the expert face brush, and both did the job well. You could probably dip a damp beauty blender that’s already in use in there as well and dab it on for a very subtle flush of color.

Pigmentation If you’re all familiar with the super shock shadows, you will know that those babies are beyond pigmented. They are magical. I’m convinced unicorns lick them and that’s why they’re so bright. The blushes are also super pigmented.

Longevity Yep, they also last as long as the eyeshadows as well. The mystery of the fading blush is a real thing in my life, and these did not fade.

Cheerio– a satin finish blush. A deep cranberry color that leans towards Marsala, in my opinion.

Between the sheets– a nude pink color with some beige tones in it. Matte finish. I think this shade is perfect for fair skin tones. It’s my ideal everyday shade, especially in Spring.

Prenup– This is described as a plummy-pink on their website and that is accurate. I’m in love with this color.

Birthday Suit– described as a neutral pink in a satin finish on their site. Because this is neutral, it can be worn with any eye look, and I like that about it. I wear about any blush with whatever look anyway, because screw rules, but you know…that’s my life.

These are arm swatches, and seriously this only me building the color up once! They are super pigmented!

I managed to take a few pictures of me wearing “between the sheets.” Please focus on my cheeks, and not the rest of my face. I was in “mom mode.”

Overall thoughts
– Colourpop has done it again. They have created a product that I am not head over heels in love with and that I will be collecting more of. I believe there are 20 colors in all, and they are all so beautiful. I love that they create shades that can be worn by everyone of every skin tone and they always make sure to swatch on different skin tones. Love this brand, and these blushes.

As usual, thank you for reading and I hope you’re all having lovely days.
