ColourPop Boba & Lunch Money Super Shock Cheeks

ColourPop Boba Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Boba Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Boba Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone true pink with golden highlights.” It’s a light-medium, cool-toned pink with lighter gold shimmer. Applied, the finish looks more like a luminous sheen than a frosted or overtly shimmery highlighter. This shade is more like a highlighting blush, as it gives color as well as highlights the skin. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and very blendable. On me, it wore well for eight hours before fading. MAC Please Yourself (LE, $27.00) is darker. MAC Iā€™m a Lover (P, $23.50) is less shimmery. MAC Just a Wisp (P, $27.00) is lighter. Makeup Geek Head Over Heels (P, $9.99) is less shimmery. NARS Adelaide (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery. MAC Well Dressed (P, $21.00) is lighter. MAC Pearl Blossom (LE, $26.00) is lighter. Illamasqua Morale (P, $26.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Lunch Money Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “soft light gold with a reflective golden duochrome finish.” It’s a light, golden beige with a frosted sheen and warm undertones. It had good color payoff that yielded full coverage applied with fingertips, but the lightly creamy, emollient consistency blended out well so it could be sheered out with fingertips or applied sheer from the get-go with a brush. The finish may seem frosted in a swatch, but on the skin, it’s a luminous glow that doesn’t emphasize pores, but it does have very slight sparkle that is sometimes visible (depends on the angle), though it doesn’t seem to migrate. It lasted for eight hours on me. Estee Lauder Courreges (LE, $32.00) is a powder. MAC Perfect Topping (Lightness of Being) (LE, $30.00) is more beige. MAC Born to Dazzle (LE, $28.00) is more sparkly. Tarte Champagne (LE) is similar, powder. Urban Decay Craze (LE) is lighter, powder. Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is powder. theBalm Solid Gold (P, $24.00) is darker. Illamasqua Aurora (P, $24.00) is a touch lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Fruit Stand, Fox, Tonic Super Shock Cheeks

ColourPop Fruit Stand Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Fruit Stand Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Fruit Stand Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “neon red orange in a matte finish.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark coral-red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage applied with fingertips, in line with the formula’s description, while brush application gave you better control and sheerer coverage so it could be built up or sheered out, depending on your needs. The texture was smooth but slightly drier, but it blends out fairly easily on the skin. On my normal-to-dry skin, it lasted for nine hours. Colour Pop Ex (LE, $5.00) is lighter. MAC Secret Admirer (LE, $22.00) is pinker. Colour Pop Erotic (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, darker. Surratt Beauty Ponceau (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, pinker. MAC Hi Jinks! (LE, $22.00) is lighter. NARS Siam (P, $39.00) is darker, brighter. theBalm Pie (P) is glossier. theBalm Cobbler (P) is darker. Chanel Intonation (69) (LE, $38.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Fox Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone warm coral in a satin finish.” It’s a muted, medium pink with warm undertones and fine silver shimmer. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage, but it was one of the sheerer blushes in the range, and it took three to four layers to get opaque coverage out of it (even with fingertip application!). The finish looks more sparkly in the pan or heavily swatched, but once blended on the skin, it translated to more of a soft sheen. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Charlotte Tilbury Las Salinas (P, $45.00) is pinker. Colour Pop Fruit Stand (P, $8.00) is darker, less shimmery. NARS Panic (Right) (P) is more shimmery, powder. Chanel Malice (71) (P, $45.00) is warmer, powder. MAC Red Obsessed (LE, $22.00) is sheerer, lighter. MAC Secret Admirer (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery. Gucci Beauty Coral Flower (P, $49.00) is less shimmery, powder. IT Cosmetics Pretty in Peony (P, $24.00) is darker, powder. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Tonic Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “bright neon orange in a matte finish.” It’s a bold, brightened medium-dark orange with warm, red undertones. There’s almost a hint of a golden sheen, but it doesn’t translate as visible shimmer on the skin; it’s like a natural matte, where the skin doesn’t lose luminosity but doesn’t look shimmery either. It was intensely pigmented, and a little goes a very long way when working with this product, so I preferred using a duo-fiber stippling brush with this to get semi-sheer color coverage that was blendable and buildable based on the look. It wore well for nine and a half hours. Urban Decay Bang (P, $26.00) is a powder. Colour Pop Squint (LE, $5.00) is similar. MAC Ocean City (LE, $32.00) is lighter, powder. YSL Orange Fougueux (04) (P, $40.00) is similar. NARS Exumas (P, $39.00) is lighter. Make Up For Ever #515 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is more orange. Make Up For Ever #420 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is more muted. NYX Cinnamon (P, $5.00) is a powder. NARS Exhibit A (P, $30.00) is redder, powder. MAC Optimistic Orange (LE, $21.00) is glossier. Benefit Cha Cha (P, $30.00) is sheerer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Tasty Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Tasty Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Tasty Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Tasty Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “candy coloured coral with multi-dimensional pink and copper duochrome.” It’s a slightly muted, medium orange with a pink to gold shimmer-sheen. Colour Pop Bonus (P, $8.00) has a similar color but is matte. NARS Frenzy (Right) (P) is more shimmery, lighter, powder. Makeup Geek Summer Fling (P, $9.99) is less shimmery, powder. MAC Modern Mandarin (P, $21.00) is darker, powder. Sleek MakeUP Pink Mint (P, $6.99) is powder. Fyrinnae Nordic Angel (P, $6.50) is less shimmery, powder. Chanel Presage (62) (LE, $38.00) is brighter, less shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

It was richly pigmented and applied with full coverage when tapped on with a fingertip, but you could apply even less or simply blend out, as it blends effortlessly on the skin. You could also use a stippling or duo fiber brush to get sheerer coverage with little work. I find the Pearlized finish to be extremely forgiving, and it is very hard to overdo as a result. Though it appears slightly frosted when swatched heavily, as it is blended out, the finish becomes more of a pearly sheen, and as a result, it is actually one of the subtler shades with respect to the finish. I can see a definite shift to pink as I turn my head in the mirror, so depending on the angle, it can look more or less orange-coral. This shade lasted for eight and a half hours on me before fading.
