ColourPop In Bloom Set
ColourPop In Bloom Set ($39.00 for 0.56 oz.) includes three cheek colors and three lipsticks released in collaboration with Jamie Greenberg. It’s an assortment of brightened takes on spring shades, and it seems like a little preview of the brand’s upcoming cream highlighters (they’ve teased about them on Instagram) with Double Dip. All six products performed good to great, were easy to apply, and lasted a nice length of time. I think a lot of the shades included are on the more dupable side, but the silver lining is that this is a more affordable way to get a lot of those higher-end similar shades, though they have to be purchased as a set. I hope we’ll see some shades get added to the permanent range!
Double Dip is described as a “soft peach with subtle highlights with a satin pearl finish.” It’s a champagne beige with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. The texture was lightly creamy–a little more emollient than most of their cheek colors–and was easy to blend on the skin, but the more velvety, clay-like formula (generally) made it appear as a subtle sheen on the skin, rather than full-on frost. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
Hysterical is described as a “cool-toned plum pink with a matte finish.” It’s a muted, medium-dark pink with cool, blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had buildable coverage from semi-sheer to fully opaque, depending on whether you applied with fingertips (as recommended for full coverage) or a stippling brush (as recommended for light coverage). The texture was velvety and smooth, and it blended nicely on the skin while wearing for nine hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
Tongue Tied is described as a “bright warm coral with a matte finish.” It’s a vibrant, coral-orange with warm, reddish undertones and a satin shimmer. I’m not sure why it’s described as matte, because there is definitely a fine shimmer running through it that gives the skin a natural sheen (but doesn’t emphasize pores). It had good color payoff that was opaque when applied with fingertips and more semi-sheer to semi-opaque when applied with a brush (depending on your choice of brush). The color wore well for nine hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
Frenemie is described as an “electric warm-toned coral with a cream finish.” It’s a bold, medium-dark coral-red with warm undertones and a soft, creamy finish with a light shine. It had almost cull color coverage that applied fairly evenly and smoothly. The texture had more slip than some of the other shades in this formula have had for me. The lipstick glided on without tugging and wore well for five hours. It was neither drying nor hydrating. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
Freshman is described as a “deep hot pink with a cream finish.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark fuchsia-red with cool, blue undertones and a glossy, creamy finish. The texture was light-medium in thickness with a moderate amount of slip, which gave it that really opaque coverage that was still creamy and very wet-looking. It wore well for six hours and left a stain behind, but I had a little bit of feathering after four hours of wear. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating.

Sweet-Thing is described as a “cool-toned medium true pink with a cream finish.” It’s a lightly muted, medium pink with cool, blue undertones and a glossy sheen. It had mostly opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The color stayed on for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time. The texture was slightly thicker but held in place without sliding around. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
