Birthday Suit

Colour Pop Birthday Suit Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a soft pink with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It almost looked matte in the pot, and even swatched, but once applied and blended out, there was a soft, natural finish that was glowing without being overtly shimmery. It had buildable pigmentation from sheer to mostly opaque, and while the sheerness was as expected when working with a brush, it was less pigmented than most Super Shock Cheek shades and would need more building than the average shade as a result. The texture was thin and lightweight, turning to powder as soon as it came into contact with my skin, but in the pot, it had a velvety, clay-like feel that I could indent and manipulate but never felt wet to the touch. The color stayed on well for nine and a half hours on me before fading 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.

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!
