Growth Flirt

ColourPop Growth Flirt Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a rich, orange-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable pigmentation from semi-sheer to mostly opaque (three layers with a brush, two layers with fingertips). The texture felt smooth, velvety, and more clay-like to the touch–drier without the slip of a traditional cream blush but indented from pressure like you might expect a cream product to (as opposed to powder). The matte finish seemed to hide my pores a bit when applied with fingertips (as opposed to a brush), which was an interesting effect. The blush applied evenly and blended out with little effort, and it stayed on well for 10 hours with minimal fading.

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.

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!

The arm swatch lied to me! I really didn’t think I was going to like this, much less fall in love with it. But, I think this is one that I would use to death during spring and summer. Very Pantone Color Of The Year!

Our climate here is so ridiculously dry that lotions and other moisturizers just sink in and disappear inside of a few hours, it seems. Very hard to keep skin from getting dry, so definitely not your fault!

Hi Christina!! First off I’d like to say I love your blog!! I really trust your reviews on products!! Second, I love Colourpop products and I’ve always been interested in their SuperShock blushes but always been intimidated by the creamy texture. I’ve always used powder blushes. I’d like to ask how you recommend to apply them? And also do you find the Colourpop ones difficult to blend? Thanks so much!! ??
