ColourPop Bubbles Cheek Dew Serum Blush Review & Swatches
ColourPop Bubbles Cheek Dew Serum Blush ($7.00 for 0.48 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark copper with moderate, warm undertones and a soft sheen. It had sheer pigmentation that was difficult to build up as the product was more likely to push around than adhere onto itself, even if I gave it some time to dry down (which was not a full dry down).
The texture was quite emollient and runny with a 20-30 second dry down. I tried applying it with fingertips, brushes, and sponges with nothing proving to be particularly awesome at yielding even, buildable coverage that was blended around the edges. On a good attempt, the layer of product was mostly even, but the challenge was softening and diffusing the edges for a seamless look… and that was dodgy at best. It was marginally better over bare skin as it was prone to moving around complexion products noticeably. This shade lasted for six hours before fading visibly.

The formula is supposed to have "buildable coverage" with a "hint" of dewiness that can be applied with fingertips, sponge, or a duo fiber brush and is recommended to be applied prior to powder products.
The consistency was very fluid, and while it was sheerer by the nature of the fluidity of the formulation, you didn't need to squeeze out that much to get going. I would recommend squeezing out a bit on the back of your hand and gently rubbing it in a small circle using a fingertip, then applying to your face. This helped the product spread out and be the perfect level of tackiness to apply to bare skin or on top of foundation/base products without lifting them up. They had sheer to semi-sheer, buildable coverage.
They don't fully dry down, so the finish remained noticeably dewy (as the name might imply), and it didn't have the best wear (around six hours for better-performing shades), but the products faded evenly and didn't slide around/down my face.

“Bubbles, tiny bubbles”. This one falls quite flat. Well, unless someone actually wants to rub something that looks like bubble bath liquid on their face, idk?
Very consistent formula, I have to give them that.
