ColourPop Teasecake Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Teasecake Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “pale pink with gold and pink duo chrome finish.” It’s a lightly pink-toned peach with soft beige that gives it a more toned down look paired with pearly shimmer that from gold to pink. Colour Pop Highly Waisted (P, $8.00) is much yellower. Colour Pop Double Dip (LE, $8.00) is lighter, more golden. MAC Coupe d’Chic (LE, $28.00) is pinker, powder. Kevyn Aucoin Starlight (P, $44.00) is darker, powder. Bobbi Brown Pink Glow (LE, $45.00) is powder, lighter. Urban Decay Aura (P, $29.00) is lighter, powder. Tom Ford Beauty Highlighter (Softcore) (LE, $55.00) is lighter, powder. Urban Decay Streak Highlighter (P) is pinker, powder. Maybelline Nude Rebellion (201) (LE, $8.99) is darker. bareMinerals The Many Splendors #2 (LE) is pinker, powder. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
The texture is very smooth and creamy with a “wet” feel, but it’s still the signature texture that’s springy and bouncy (think clay or PlayDoh) that goes onto skin like a powder and sits like a powder. It had buildable coverage from semi-sheer to semi-opaque, with fingertip application yielding semi-opaque coverage. With the more duochrome sheen, I think it is prettier and more complex in person than in photos, as you can see how it shifts as your face moves and the light hits the cheeks in different ways. On me, it doesn’t show up with much color until I tilt or move, but on fairer skin tones, I think you’ll get subtle color out of it as well. The texture has a frosted sheen that just slightly emphasized pores after about two and a half hours of wear (initially, it didn’t), though it didn’t worsen over the rest of the time I wore it. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before fading on me.
