Ooh She's Blushing

Colour Pop Ooh She’s Blushing Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a vivid, medium-dark pink-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a more flat matte finish when swatched, but it seemed to absorb the natural oils on my face when I applied it to my cheeks (my arm is very dry compared to my face!). The blush had a velvety, smooth consistency that left an indent behind when pressed but didn’t feel wet to the touch–it felt almost clay-like but more malleable. It had opaque pigmentation when applied with fingertips and easily semi-opaque pigmentation when applied with a stippling brush; the latter was the best way to achieve more semi-sheer, buildable coverage but I had to barely pick up any product to do so.

I was able to spread and blend out the product well over bare skin with fingertips and brushes, but for application over a base, a brush was best but there was a bit of lifting. It wore well for 10 hours before fading very slightly.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.15 oz. - $53.33 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "buildable" coverage and can be applied with fingertips (which will yield "higher coverage") or a brush (for sheerer coverage). It's a cream-based product that has a subtle, "wet" feel to it but never has the thickness of a true cream-based blush. It goes on with the smoothness of a cream formulation but diffuses and blends (without lifting up one's base) more like a powder product. The product sets to a powder finish, so the product won't slide around during the day. On me, the wear tends to be between eight and 10 hours. Most shades have medium, buildable pigmentation with some being semi-opaque to opaque on occasion. They are typically blendable, easy to use, and long-wearing.

Stop It

Colour Pop Stop It Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, medium orange with warm, balanced (between red and yellow) undertones and a true matte finish. While the finish was totally matte, it did seem to absorb a bit of my skin’s natural oils so it did not appear totally flat when applied to my cheeks. The end result was more of a stained effect, which worked particularly well when applied over bare skin, but application over a base was a little more challenging (doable with more buildable coverage, less-matte foundations). The texture was more velvety and clay-like–drier and less “wet” to the touch compared to more shimmery shades in the formula. It was extremely pigmented, though, and even when I applied the color with a stippling brush, it wasn’t “sheer” and “airbrushed” but rather more medium if I was careful, semi-opaque if I wasn’t. It stayed on well for 10 hours on me before fading very slightly.

Pillow Talk

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Cheek to Chic Blusher ($40.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a soft, peachy brown with soft, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. The center shade is a lighter, more shimmery peach, whereas the outer ring of color is a light-medium, rosy brown with a semi-matte to satin finish. It is most practical to use swirled together, though one can concentrate a bit more to the edge or more in the center to darken or lighten. The texture of both shades was the same: silky, smooth, and finely-milled without being powdery nor too firmly pressed in the pan. They applied evenly and blended out easily on my skin. The color stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.

Per Charlotte Tilbury PR, this shade will return in January (it’s sold out, has been sold out, and so on).

Holiday 2018

Fenty Beauty Holiday 2018 Match Stix by the Dozen ($129.00 for 1.20 oz.) contains 12 miniature-sized Match Stix with five shades from the permanent line and seven new shades. I reached out to the brand multiple times trying to find out whether the new shades were going to be added to the permanent range in the future or if they were limited edition and exclusive to the set, but I wasn’t able to get an answer. The packaging for the set was similar to the Mattemoiselle 10/10 set (which I was able to get confirmation about; those new shades will be added in the future) and not the limited edition, holiday sets, so here’s hoping they will be added in the future. The formula was consistent with the permanent range–medium to full coverage, fairly blendable, a drier, more powder-like finish on the skin. Some shades were drier, sheerer, or harder to blend out, which was how the permanent range was for me as well.

Each Match Stix contains 0.10 oz. of product, and a full-sized Match Stix contains 0.25 oz. and retails for $25.00 or $100.00 per ounce, which gives the set a total value of $120. It includes a roll-up case that they can be stored in. Worth nothing, the miniature Match Stix are not magnetic, whereas the full-sized ones click together for easy hunting in one’s bag (per the brand at launch).

Killawatt Foil

Fenty Beauty Killawatt Foil Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Palette ($54.00 for 0.70 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette featuring seven hues designed for highlighting the eyes and cheeks. Those who don’t find all the shades usable to highlight cheeks will be able to use those shades as eyeshadows. There were only two shades that I feel really stood out in the palette and were truest to the Killawatt formula: Stone Cold and Hunny Slope. Shades like Chillz, Scandal’ice, and Coppin Ice have larger sparkles/shimmer to them and less pigmentation, and I don’t think this was conveyed that well through the marketing on this. This is definitely a palette most suitable for someone who likes more sparkle and glitter in their products. Worth noting, the palette is thicker cardboard, which was unexpected compared to past Fenty palettes of similar size/price point.

Heartbreaker

NARS Heartbreaker Holiday 2018 Cheek Trio ($42.00 for 0.36 oz.) includes three blushes from the brand’s permanent range. Oddly, the brand’s often-released Orgasm blush fell short here; it was firm and stiff to work with, heartbreaking really… Luster was dustier in the palette than it has been in its standalone format but was easy to work with, just not quite the same in finish. Amour seemed fairly consistent with the last version I have, though.
