ColourPop Fresh n Peachy Pressed Powder Blush Review & Swatches
Fresh n Peachy
ColourPop Fresh n Peachy Pressed Powder Blush ($7.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a brighter, medium coral with stronger, warmer orange undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer with a smooth, silky consistency that felt a little thin. I’m often worried when a blush is both thin and matte, as it can often lead to a product that adheres too strongly wherever it’s initially applied and then doesn’t blend out as well, but I’m happy to report that this shade applied evenly and diffused easily along the edges for a seamless lay down of product. The “downside” to this product (which is reflected in the rating) is that it was far more pigmented than marketed (“buildable”). It stayed on nicely for eight hours on me before fading visibly.

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.

Of the 3 released in this collection, this is the only one I was even remotely interested in, because it would show up on me. Having Essence Satin Coral means that I can save $’s and pass this one up, though.
This is such a nice peachy shade!
