Last month, ColourPop Super Shock Cheek colors were released, sending ColourPop fans (such as myself) into a state of pure excitement. There are twenty gorgeous colors in the Super Shock Cheek collection, and today I have two to share with you: Pie and Swift.
The ColourPop Super Shock Cheek are a bit larger than the Super Shock Shadows and that is reflected in the price of $8, a bit higher than the $5 for the shadows. The blush colors have a similar bouncy texture as the shadows, but they seem a little more creamy.
The concept behind the blush and the eyeshadows is the same – while you can use a synthetic brush to apply the color, you get the most impact with the use of your fingers. The colors are so incredibly pigmented, a little bit goes a long way and you just need a dab. You have a few seconds to blend out the blush before it sets, and when it does set, you’ll find the blush to last all the live long day. Seriously, these cream blushes offer incredible staying power.
Pie is a neon pink with a matte finish. I chose this color because I find that bright colors, applied with a light hand, lend a natural looking flush.
Swift is a warm, deep brown matte. It works well as a bronzer and for contouring, which is exactly why I had to have this shade.
Together they’re a gorgeous combination. I layered a bit of Swift under my cheekbone as a contour, and then blended some Pie on top.
My Final Thoughts: ColourPop Cosmetics did cream blush RIGHT! I’m really impressed with how easily the ColourPop Super Shock Cheek colors I tested blend and last. With twenty shades to choose from, you know I’ll be back for more.
