ColourPop Highly Waisted Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “soft golden peach with pink and gold duochrome.” It’s a light-medium, yellowed peach with pink and gold shimmer that shifts to a distinct pearly pink sheen when the light catches the cheekbones just-so. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Glow #4 (LE, $55.00) is pinker. Becca Opal (P, $38.00) lacks the duochrome. NARS Jubilation (Right) (P) is darker, no duochrome. MAC Uplifting (LE, $27.00) is similar in color and finish but doesn’t have the same pink tint. Becca Guava/Moonstone (P, $27.00) is darker, no duochrome. MAC Fairly Precious (LE, $30.00) is more frosted, but it has a slight pink tone to it that makes it one of the more similar shades, though it isn’t a duochrome either. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

This shade had good color payoff, though it wasn’t completely opaque when applied with fingertips unless layered. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, thin, and lightweight, which made it very blendable on the skin and easily wore over bare skin or on top of your base products of choice. That thinner texture makes it easy to skim the product across the surface of the skin without disrupting base products underneath. Highly Waisted has a visible duochrome, which gives a real pink-gold coloring at times, but for medium complexions or darker, I’d recommend wearing a blush or bronzer to coordinate, or else it appears as if there is almost no color on the skin, while fairer complexions will likely get light warmth even when viewed straight-on. It’s a shade that may be a highlighter on some skin tones and a highlighting blush on others. It had a noticeable, lightly metallic sheen, but it didn’t emphasize pores or the skin’s natural texture. On me, it lasted for eight and a half hours. The duochrome finish made this highlighter one of the more unique ones I’ve come across.

Wow this is so pretty. Really hoping they will ship to UK soon so I can try out some of the products. Thanks for the great reviews as ever Christine! x

Oh, this is pretty! I thought it was going to be too yellow or too peachy, but no. I think this will flatter many skin tones.

You’re not making it easy to just pick one or two lol. I’m trying so hard not to want them all!

I love quality of ColourPop products. Placed my first order with them and received one broken eyeshadow and a hair with another. It is a small business and that shows through packaging.
