ColourPop Highly Waisted Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Highly Waisted Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “soft golden peach with pink and gold duochrome.” It’s a light-medium, yellowed peach with pink and gold shimmer that shifts to a distinct pearly pink sheen when the light catches the cheekbones just-so. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Glow #4 (LE, $55.00) is pinker. Becca Opal (P, $38.00) lacks the duochrome. NARS Jubilation (Right) (P) is darker, no duochrome. MAC Uplifting (LE, $27.00) is similar in color and finish but doesn’t have the same pink tint. Becca Guava/Moonstone (P, $27.00) is darker, no duochrome. MAC Fairly Precious (LE, $30.00) is more frosted, but it has a slight pink tone to it that makes it one of the more similar shades, though it isn’t a duochrome either.

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.
