ColourPop Gumdrop Pass Super Shock Blush Review & Swatches
ColourPop Gumdrop Pass Super Shock Blush ($9.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium pink withs ubtle, warm undertones and cooler silver and lavender micro-pearl over a more matte finish. The texture felt drier and thinner, almost stiff to work with, but it was still malleable so I wouldn’t say that it was dried out… but it didn’t feel as emollient or as cream-like (at least, initially) for the formula in my experience.
It had medium coverage that was buildable to mostly opaque with two to three layers applied with fingertips and very sheer coverage with a brush (I wouldn’t bother using a brush at all here), but the dryness made it harder to apply to bare skin and really poor over foundation as it was very prone to lifting and moving underlying products around. Worn on bare skin, it stayed on well for nine hours before fading visibly.

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.

What a shame that this one was so dried out! Probably a glitch in their packaging or perhaps it was actually formulated further back than we know due to the pandemic. I say this because I watched Amanda at Makeup Just For Fun and ThatGirlShae both apply this shade live and it looked way richer in pigmentation than this pot. I really believe something went awry in manufacturing these that some pots of it are likely not okay. I’ll pass on it, in that case, because I wouldn’t want to chance getting a dried up pot! Besides, I have CP Wallaby.
Wallaby is a Blush Stix shade, right? That formula is so, so good. Aloha is my daily spring/summer color, and I adore it! I’m a little worried that CP might be moving away from that type of product though…
Yep, it is, Boo! Sadly, CP seems to rapidly discontinue some of their best products and most loved shades within product lines. They seem to have no direction!
I’m tired of CP constantly being out of stock. I’ve been trying to order a new set of Jelly Much shadows and have been waiting for months. I like them as a ‘one and done’, but if they don’t come back into stock by end of September, I’m going to have to move on.
