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.
This is one of the more sparkly shades in the line-up where the sparkles are noticeable on the skin, which may or may not be your cup of tea. It’s not smoothing out pores, but it’s not emphasizing them, despite how sparkly and metallic it is on the skin, but the sparkles scatter a bit as the color is blended on the skin, though they don’t seem to migrate–after eight hours, I wasn’t seeing stray sparkles on my chin, around my nose, or anywhere except the cheek bone that I applied it to. The texture is very smooth, lightly creamy, and the underlying color glides on effortlessly and blends well on the skin. It’s highly reflective on the skin when it catches the light, and at other times, almost imperceptible on my medium skin tone. It had opaque coverage if applied with a fingertip, and then sheerer coverage when applied with a stippling brush. When I tried applying with a stippling brush, it seemed to get more sparkle than color, so I preferred application with fingertips or a denser brush. On me, it lasted eight hours before breaking down.
