Drop of a Hat

Colour Pop Drop of a Hat Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium, pinky-coral base with warm, gold and copper shimmer throughout. The texture was smooth, emollient without being too slippery, and easy to work with on bare skin as well as on top of base products.

The blush yielded opaque pigmentation when applied with fingertips and sheerer, buildable coverage when applied with a stippling brush, which was in line with the formula’s description. This shade applied evenly and blendedout effortlessly on my skin. It wore well for 10 hours with very little fading present. This shade is a repromote.

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.

This blush is all but mandatory. If you don’t have it or a dupe, by all means haul it. I assume it will remain permanent. On me, it loses some of the pink, gains a bit of brown, and reads brick, with the same reflects.

One of my favorite blushes EVER. Like for all-time. I still have mine, but I might need to get a new one before mine dries out. It is 2 years old already!

I have a very fair skin (MAC NC10) and it looks absolutely fabulous as a highlighting blush. It’s very easy to have a lighter hand with it, it’s one of my favourite blush. I’m glad to see Colour Pop being consistent with products like this one.

I really like the finish on this, though the color’s too bright for me personally. I hope Colourpop comes out with some more shimmery blushes in the future
