Sephora Oh My Gosh Colorful Blush

Sephora Oh My Gosh (10) Colorful Blush

Sephora Oh My Gosh (10) Colorful Blush ($14.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “red.” It’s a bright, medium-dark orange with strong, warm red undertones and a matte finish. It’s more orange than it is red, though. Colour Pop Girl Power (LE, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Exhibit A (P, $30.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Tonic (P, $8.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Slowburn (P) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Colorful Blush formula is supposed to be long-wearing, buildable, and have a lightweight texture. My experience with the formula–generally–has shown that they’re soft, lightly powdery at times (some are worse than others) with semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage that blends fairly well and lasts seven to eight hours. There is some variance between shades, but there are some gems in the range. It was intensely pigmented; I wouldn’t describe as a buildable formula at all, because even the barest touch of the brush results is very strong coverage. The consistency is lightly dusty, not too thin or too dense, and blends fairly well but could be a little easier to diffuse and even out on the skin. The color stayed on for eight and a half hours before fading.

ColourPop Silhouette Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Silhouette Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “rich blue red.” It’s a bright, medium red with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage with a lightweight, easy-to-apply consistency. This was one of the more comfortable and easier-to-wear shades in the liquid lipstick formula. Kat Von D Tijuana (P, $21.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Opera (LE, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Ruby Woo (P, $17.00) is darker (95% similar).

ColourPop Stingraye Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “cool-toned mauve brown.” It’s a muted, medium-dark mauve with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. There is a light sheen to it, and it has a more “plastic” like feel on the lips that is smooth but a little tacky and not fully matte. It applied well and wore for six hours with slight extra fading noticeable around the center of the mouth. It was lightly drying. Colour Pop Teeny Tiny (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Tulle (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Kat Von D Exorcism (P, $20.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Teeny Tiny Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep greyed out plum.” It’s a muted, medium-dark plummy brown with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had totally opaque coverage and applied evenly. The texture dried down quickly but with enough time to get everything into place, but it looked a little “shrinkwrapped” applied. The color lasted for six hours but was somewhat drying. Colour Pop Stingraye (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Tulle (P, $6.00) is warmer (85% similar). Kat Von D Exorcism (P, $20.00) is darker, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Platform Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “warm beige nude.” It’s a brightened, light-medium peach with strong, warm orange undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage that applied evenly and smoothly, though the color “cracked” somewhat as soon as I smiled. The texture was mostly non-sticky (though it was transfer-resistant). On me, the color lasted for six hours with some uneven color breakdown over the last two hours. It was lightly drying. MAC Mademoiselle (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Noble (P, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). Milani Adore (LE, $8.99) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
