Pops of Peach: Colourpop Cosmetics Supershock Blush Review

Today in South Jersey it finally felt like spring, which is perfect because I recently received four of the 20 Colourpop Super Shock Cheek Blushes. All the shades I picked are more on the spring/summer spectrum, but with the winter blues and snowstorms who doesn’t long for corals, peaches and pinks? These blushes, retailing at $8, come in matte and satin formulas, and like the Colourpop eyeshadows they feel spongey (not quite like a cream, but definitely not a powder), but they dry to a powder finish. Below is pictures, swatches, a makeup look and mini review! So plan a spring adventure with perfect in peach looks.

Review

These blushes definitely have staying power, the swatches above haven’t moved an inch in four hours, even after rubbing the back of my hand. Although three of my shades are matte, they all have a dewy-esque look which I happen to like, but don’t expect these to be a true matte formula. The finish is more sheer than opaque, but the color is buildable. I used a Real Techniques Stippling Brush (Colourpop recommends using a duo fiber brush), but I’m honestly going to try a denser/bigger brush because I think the product would apply better, mine was a bit streaky. I had to build up the color to get the shade I desired, but the color is easy to build and beautiful. My favorites are Pegacorn, which I almost didn’t get because it’s so in ya face, and Bonus which is my perfect colored blush! I’d give these an 8/10 and for $8 they’re awesome. I’m definitely picking up more!
