ColourPop Hippo & Monster Super Shock Cheeks

ColourPop Hippo Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned icy lavender.” It’s a cool-toned, pinkish-white with a pearly, violet sheen. It had mostly opaque coverage when applied with a fingertip, but the consistency was creamy and smooth, so it was easily blended down to sheer coverage, or you can apply with a brush to achieve less payoff initially. Very fair skin tones could easily wear this alone, but it’ll pop more on darker skin tones when paired with a blush (it looks amazing with Sticky Sweet). On me, this shade lasted for seven and a half hours before fading slightly, which does make it one of the shorter-wearing shades I’ve tried so far. Colour Pop Monster (P, $8.00) is less cool-toned, pinker-based, though on my skin tone they appear more similar than not until I turn my cheek, then you get a stronger duochrome sheen out of Monster that’s a smoother, less frosted sheen. Makeup Geek First Love (P, $9.99) is darker, less shimmery. NARS New Order (P, $29.00) is darker. MAC Unconventional (LE, $21.00) is cooler-toned, darker, less shimmery. MAC Full of Joy (P, $21.00) is darker, cooler-toned, less shimmery. MAC Pearl Blossom (LE, $26.00) is warmer, slightly darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Butterfly Beach & Wisp Super Shock Cheeks

ColourPop Butterfly Beach Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “soft peach with highlights of gold and silver.” It’s a rich, coppery bronze with warm, reddish undertones and a metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented and applied easily with fingertips or a duo-fiber stippling brush. Despite the really metallic sheen, it didn’t emphasize pores, but it may be too reflective/shiny for some. This shade wore exceptionally well and seemed to stay in place for nine and a half hours with barely any fading detected. Laura Geller Ballerina (P, $24.00) is a powder, less metallic. MAC Superb (LE, $30.00) is darker, not quite as warm-toned. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Spoon Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Spoon Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “light silver champagne with multi-dimensional silver flecks.” It’s a very light, champagne-beige base with a lot of multi-colored sparkle that flash pink, silver, and teal paired with a metallic sheen. This shade is particularly complex, because the more metallic sheen seems to give a brighter, almost pink-champagne color when I look at swatched in person, dead-on, but if it’s angled at all, it flashes warmer to the point where it blends into my skin tone completely. At other times, the sparkle seems to disappear, and other times, it is at the forefront. Colour Pop Smokin’ Whistles (P, $8.00) is lighter, cooler-toned. Colour Pop Lunch Money (P, $8.00) is lighter, less sparkly. Colour Pop Double Dip (LE, $8.00) is warmer. Becca Opal (P, $38.00) is darker. Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is warmer. Estee Lauder Courreges (LE, $32.00) is lighter. MAC Mystery Princess (LE, $26.00) is powder. MAC Born to Dazzle (LE, $28.00) is powder. NARS 413 BLKR (P, $30.00) is more metallic. Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is a powder. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
