At First Crush

ColourPop At First Crush 4-Pan Cheek Palette ($18.00 for 0.3 oz.) is a medium-depth set of shades that includes a cream-to-powder highlighter, powder bronzer, and two powder blushes. The highlighter was the best performing, but all the products were consistent with my experience with the formulas over time–the powder shades could have been more blendable and easier to work with for me.

In my experience, ColourPop’s powder blush formula has a really smooth, silky consistency that can be on the more powdery side (which helps ensure it is more buildable than not) sometimes emphasizes dryness on my skin. I did find that to be true with these to varying degrees, as they were a little thin, flat, and weren’t always as effortless to apply as I would expect.

A Flutter

A Flutter is a light-medium copper with strong, warm orange undertones and a luminous sheen. It had opaque pigmentation when applied with a fingertip and more medium, buildable coverage applied with a stippling brush.

The texture felt smooth, emollient, and wet to the touch, which gave it great glide over bare skin as well as on top of foundation, but it turned to a more powder-like feel as soon as it came into contact with my skin. It wore well for 10 hours before fading visibly.

Giddy Like

Giddy Like is a medium, caramel brown with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium, buildable color coverage paired with a soft, moderately powdery consistency that was slightly thinner and drier.

I’d recommend applying this over more mattified skin as it blended out more easily that way; on top of bare skin, it was harder to spread out and diffuse easily so I had to use very thin layers to get a fairly blended result. This shade lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

ColourPop's Pressed Powder Bronzer is supposed to have a "super velvety-soft" feel that yields a "natural tanned glow." There was no mention of coverage, but the brand's promotional swatches showed full coverage. The bronzers had a soft, silky texture that was slightly powdery in the pan but tended to apply with ease, blended out nicely, and sat well on the skin. The majority of the shades seemed to have a semi-matte to satin finish, which helped them glide on and appear more natural (in finish) on the skin. The wear ranged from eight to eight and a half hours on me.

Got Butterflies

Got Butterflies is a brighter, medium-dark orange-coral with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was moderately powdery, so I’d suggest using a less-dense brush and using a lighter hand when picking up color.

It had more medium, buildable pigmentation, so it was hard to pick up too much product, but it was easier to blend out lesser amounts as it wasn’t the most blendable formula. It wore well for eight hours before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.13 oz. - $61.54 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to go on "smoothly" and have a "natural and healthy flush" that has "long wear" and "can be layered to your desired intensity." It is a lightly to moderately powdery powder blush with semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable color payoff. The consistency has a drier, thinner feel and though it feels silky to the touch, I found it the type of powder blush can be tricky to blend out evenly on the skin, depending on one's skin type or base preferences. The drier the skin/base, the better the formula would blend, but any natural oils or slip caused the blush to go on unevenly and was difficult to blend out. The wear was between seven and eight hours on me on average.

Hi Infatuation

Hi Infatuation is a medium-dark pink with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium color coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with two to three layers. The powder blush had a smooth, silky consistency that was thin and somewhat powdery.

As a result, it was more prone to sticking and not wanting to blend out if my skin had any dewiness to it, so it was easier to blend out when applied over powdered or mattified skin. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before fading visibly.
