2 Cool 4 School

Colour Pop 2 Cool 4 School Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is medium-dark peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable coverage from semi-sheer to mostly opaque when applied with a stippling brush and nearly opaque coverage when applied with fingertips. The blush had a smooth, more clay-like consistency that indented when pressed but moved more as one and felt more powder-like (drier in a way) than some of the past iterations of this formula (which tend to have more noticeable wetness initially).

One aspect I enjoy about the matte shades is that they tend to be almost smoothing and help to fill in pores like a pore-smoothing primer might. This shade applied evenly and blended out without too much effort, left my cheeks looking smoother, and didn’t lift up base products (but worked well on bare skin, which is where I tested for longevity). It stayed on nicely for nine and a half hours before fading on my cheeks.

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.

This one appears on your cheeks the way MAC Cheek Pollen appears on mine; like a softly tanned, sunkissed cheek! Perfect type of shade for late summer and early autumn, I think.
