ColourPop Alchemy Super Shock Cheeks

ColourPop Pretty Bonnes Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “creamy ivory with subtle gold duochrome effect.” It’s a light, creamy beige with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. I don’t really notice a duochrome effect in person. The texture was soft, lightly emollient, and smooth on the skin. It is most blendable with fingertips (I think the warmth of fingers helps), but I had no issues using a brush–it just took a little longer. It has mostly opaque coverage applied with fingertips and then more semi-sheer, buildable coverage when used with brushes (as described). The texture didn’t emphasize pores and lasted for eight hours. Cle de Peau Bal Masque (LE, $120.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). L'Oreal Rose (P, $12.99) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight (P, $44.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Lightscapade (P, $32.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Laura Mercier Highlight 01 (P, $40.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Descanso & Teaspoon Creme Gel Colours

ColourPop Descanso Creme Gel Colour ($6.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “bright purple.” It’s a bold, bright, medium-dark violet purple with cool undertones and bluish micro-glitter. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a creamy consistency that wasn’t too heavy, nor did it take too long to dry (it is quicker-drying). The color is so vibrant and pops well on the lash line, but I had issues with the glitter and color flaking on me over time, even though much of the color remained visible for over eight hours. Kat Von D Homie (P, $10.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). NARS St. Marks Place (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Sephora Eccentric Diva (P, $9.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Buxom Door's Unlocked (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
