Part 3 of the ColourPop round up are the blushes. I woke up at an ungodly hour the day these launched and spent about 4 hours trying to get these babies into my cart. Commitment, ya’ll.

All of the Super Shock blushes have a soft diffused look that is what makes cream to powder blushes so nice. They apply best before using any powder products and need to be worked into the skin to get an even finish. The texture is a little drier than the Maybelline Bouncy Blush, but a very similar formula. I prefer using my fingers to apply them and then blending the edges out with a buffing brush.

colourpop blushWith the exception of Fox (a satin), all of my shades are labeled mattes (although, I swear Between the sheets has a very slight sheen to it). Mochi is a very sweet blue toned pink and Early Bird has a strong red undertone that would be lovely to wear during summer to highlight a tan. Holiday and Between the Sheets are the most natural and are both excellent for daily wear.

While they’re not my all-time favorite blushes, I will say they are easy to use and make a great alternative to a standard powder blush. Now, I really want to get my hands on those brand-new highlighters! 😉

Hope you enjoyed this little ColourPop collection! Stay tuned, I’ve got another similar brand series coming up soon!
