Barre Hopping

ColourPop Barre Hopping Pressed Powder Blush ($8.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a light-medium brown with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable color coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage. The texture was drier and moderately powdery in the pan, though it did not appear dry or chalky on my skin and blended decently. It just barely showed up on my complexion so it might work well for fairer compelxions as a soft bronzer but would likely get lost on deeper skin tones. The blush wore well for seven and a half hours on me.

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.

My very first thought upon seeing this applied to your cheeks was that it reminded me of a poorer quality, lighter version of MAC Cheek Pollen. Like seriously so. Thing is, Cheek Pollen totally shows up on me, whereas I don’t think this one would do much for me and others with, say, NC30 or NW25 and darker skintones.

That looks really nice on you despite the rating. I think you are right, a very good bronzer for us pale folk. Maybe even a good correcting powder for darker tones too!
