Candy Floss

ColourPop Candy Floss Super Shock Cheek (Highlighter) ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) has more of a translucent base and a mix of finer and larger-sized pearl and sparkle that was silvery-white and iridescent. The finish appeared smoother in practice than it seemed it would when swatched, but it was a sparkly highlighter with larger flecks of visible sparkle, which I know appeals to some and not to others.

The consistency felt smooth, slightly wet to the touch, but it quickly turned to a more powder-like consistency when it came into contact with skin. The product applied well with fingertips and felt like it was harder to apply it evenly with a brush. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation applied with a fingertip and fairly sheer coverage applied with a brush–a little less pigmented than marketed. It wore well for nine hours but had light migration from the larger sparkles over time.

Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. 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!

Not bad, but if much rather have the one from the other day that you reviewed. Unfortunately, that other one, Lantern something, is all sold out. I really do hope that ColourPop restocks it!
