ColourPop Rain Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Rain Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Rain Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Rain Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone lavender in a matte finish.” It’s a lightly pink-tinged, medium lavender with subtle, cooler undertones and a semi-matte finish. Urban Decay Bittersweet (P, $26.00) is darker, cooler-toned. Clinique Pansy Pop (P, $21.00) is a smidgen lighter. Makeup Geek Secret Admirer (P, $9.99) is lighter. Sephora + Pantone Universe Radiant Orchid (LE) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

This is a cream-based formula that is billed as having buildable coverage with the greatest coverage achieved by applying with fingertips and the least by using a stippling brush. It was sheer to semi-opaque, depending on your application and how much you layered, but it always appeared slightly lighter applied than it did in the pan–I think the pink tone comes through more. The texture was lightly creamy, fairly blendable, and sat well on the skin, while it lasted for almost nine hours on me. This one wasn’t quite as blendable as other shades I’ve tried in the formula, but it wasn’t too difficult to use. It is a good option for someone wanting to try purple blush but doesn’t want to break the bank!

ColourPop Hello, In a Pickle Super Shock Shadow & Daddy Pressed Pigment

ColourPop Hello Super Shock Shadow
ColourPop Hello Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Hello Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft pastel yellow in a matte finish.” It’s a brightened, light yellow with a white base and matte finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation and had a drier texture that tended to pill. It didn’t feel dried out per se in the pot, but it just didn’t have the same blendability or slide of the majority of the range. I couldn’t get the color to go on completely smoothly, unfortunately. It started to crease after eight hours of wear. Colour Pop One & Done (LE, $5.00) is more beige. Makeup Geek Mirage (LE, $5.99) is darker. NARS Misfit #1 (P, $24.00) is darker, more beige.

ColourPop In a Pickle Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “pastel coral pink in a matte finish.” It’s a softened, light-medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on evenly, but it was a little drier in how it looked on the skin where it almost balled up in places and wasn’t as blendable. It wore well for nine hours before creasing. Hourglass Monochrome #3 (P) is lighter. Make Up For Ever S800 Grenadine (P, $21.00) is slightly darker. Chanel Palpitation (104) (LE, $29.50) is darker, cooler-toned. Chanel Quadrille #3 (LE) is slightly darker. MAC Early Bird (LE, $16.00) is brighter, darker. MAC Dear Cupcake (LE, $16.00) is pinker. Get comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Daddy Super Shock Pressed Pigment ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned vibrant violet in a matte finish.” It’s a lightly brightened, medium-dark purple with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had decent pigmentation but wasn’t fully pigmented. I didn’t realize this was a Pressed Pigment (which means it is “not intended for use in the immediate eye area”) until I went to write up the review–it just didn’t seem vibrant enough to make me double check–so I went back and swatched/tested it as a blush as well (after having mistakenly used it as an eyeshadow). As a blush, it was fairly blendable but doesn’t feel quite as velvety and easy to use as the actual Super Shock Cheek formula. It lasted for eight and a half hours on my cheeks. Colour Pop Liaison (LE, $5.00) is darker. Maybelline Painted Purple (P, $6.99) is cooler-toned. Inglot #379 (P, $6.00) is darker. Get comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop More, Please Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop More, Please Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop More, Please Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop More, Please Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “vivid fuchsia with a violet-blue duochrome in a pearlized finish.” It’s a bright, fuchsia magenta with cool, blue undertones and silver and violet pearl. Colour Pop Pie (P, $8.00) is more matte. Colour Pop Homie (P, $8.00) is purpler, matte. Colour Pop Pegacorn (P, $8.00) is less shimmery, more muted. Colour Pop Fantasy (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, purpler. Colour Pop Slave2Pink (P, $5.00) is more shimmery. Make Up For Ever S852 Neon Pink (P, $21.00) is cooler-toned, matte. Too Faced Monaco (P, $16.00) is similar. Urban Decay Jilted (P) is purpler. Sugarpill Smitten (LE, $13.00) is cooler-toned. Fyrinnae Superstar (P, $6.80) is more shimmery. Get comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

The Super Shock Cheek formula is a cream-based blush that will have the most intense pigmentation when applied with fingertips and lesser, more buildable coverage when used with a brush (the more feathery or less dense the brush, the sheerer the coverage). A little goes a ridiculously long way when it comes to this shade, as it is intensely pigmented: a mere pat of the fingertip on the surface is enough for semi-sheer coverage. The shimmer is a lot more visible on the skin than it has been in other shimmery blushes I’ve seen from ColourPop, so it’s nice to see the finish actually show up on the skin. It had a wetter, more emollient and cream-like consistency compared to other Super Shock Cheek shades I’ve tried, which made it easier to apply and very, very blendable on the skin, but it didn’t slide all over the place. This shade wore well for almost ten hours on me.

P.S. — ColourPop just tweeted that they’re doing a 24-hour flash sale on their foursomes (now $16, regularly $20) and the Not a Box of Chocolates (now $24, regularly $30).

ColourPop Fetch, Please Set

ColourPop Fetch Please Set
ColourPop Fetch Please Set

ColourPop Fetch Please Set ($30.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes three lipsticks, an eyeshadow duo, a pressed pigment duo, and a single eyeshadow. It’s an interesting set of shades, but I definitely wish the purple and orange duo was eye safe (Pressed Pigments aren’t eye safe) as I think it would have been really cool to work with all of those shades on the eye. I liked the set overall, but it didn’t feel as versatile or as user-friendly as a set of shades that could be used together.

Lovey Dovey is described as a “true mid-tone grey [with a Matte finish].” It’s a muted, medium gray with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had fairly good color payoff with a moderately blendable consistency. This shade takes a little extra work to really blend it with other shades compared to the brand’s more shimmery shades. It stayed put for ten hours, though. Get comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Hunger is described as a “deep maroon [with a Matte finish].” It’s a rich, medium-dark red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage that builds and layers well. I was really happy to see such a rich shade of red that was part of their regular range, so it could be used on the eyes. It was blendable without losing its intensity. When I tested it, the color wore without creasing for ten hours. Get comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Just a Sip is described as a “warm dusty peach [with a Matte finish].” It’s a muted, peachy-orange with warm, brown undertones and satin finish. It had excellent pigmentation with a smooth, blendable consistency that was really easy to work with. The color wore well for ten hours without creasing or fading. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Squint is described as a “neon orange-red [with a Matte finish].” It’s a bold, brightened, medium-dark orange with warm, red undertones and a golden satin sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a lightly creamy, smooth texture that felt velvety and blended well on the skin. On cheeks, it stayed on well for nine hours. Note, this is a Pressed Pigment, and the Pressed Pigment formula is “not recommended for the eye area.” See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Liaison is described as a “vivid violet-blue [with a Matte finish].” It’s a bold, medium-dark cool-toned violet purple with a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that was somewhat blendable–it seemed a little dry to me. It wore well for nine hours on cheeks. Note, this is a Pressed Pigment, and the Pressed Pigment formula is “not recommended for the eye area.” See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Squeeze is described as a “soft mauve pink [with a Matte finish].” It’s a soft, muted medium pink with cool, mauve undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had opaque color coverage that glided on evenly without tugging on the lips. The color lasted for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Precocious is described as a “pale muted nude [with a Matte finish].” It’s a light, muted peachy-beige with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had full color coverage, but the texture was slightly drier, though it didn’t tug. It clung more, and it was somewhat drying after three hours of wear (with total wear of four hours). See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Paramour is described as a “deep dark blackberry [with a Matte finish].” It’s a deep, dark reddish burgundy with subtle, warm undertones. The consistency was thinner and had more slip, so while it glided on easily, it didn’t go on evenly. It looked somewhat patchy and feathered a bit outside the natural lip line after four hours of wear, though it lasted for closer to six hours. It was a lightly drying overall. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Clutch Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “vivid rosy red in a matte finish.” It’s a bold, brightened, medium-dark pink-red with cool undertones and a mostly matte finish.

It had rich, buildable coverage that was intense if applied or patted on with fingertips or more semi-opaque when applied with a stippling brush. I felt like a little went a long way, but the product remained blendable, so it is versatile for the full spectrum of skin tones as you can really adjust and play with the level of coverage. The texture has that lightly spongy, slightly creamy consistency that turns into more of a powder-like texture and finish once you start to apply it to the skin. In the pot, it’s distinctly a cream-based product, but it plays more like a powder product when you actually work with it. I think it looks like a cross of the two in terms of how it sits on the skin, as it looks almost like a stain due to that near-matte finish that doesn’t look totally flat. On me, this shade lasted for ten hours before fading.
