Holiday (2019)

ColourPop Holiday (2019) Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, medium coral that leans slightly pink and has soft, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque pigmentation when applied with fingertips and more buildable, semi-sheer color coverage when applied with a stippling brush–exactly as described. I like using fingertips to pat the color into place and then using the edge of my fingertip (without product) to diffuse and soften the edge. The consistency was velvety with glide but no slip/wetness, and I could indent and push the product around with my fingertip, but it acts and feels like a powder as soon as it gets onto my skin. It had a natural finish to it, which I thought made it easier to wear, and it seemed to make my skin’s texture look a bit smoother at a glance. It wore well for 10 hours without fading on me.

P.S. — I reviewed this shade in 2015 (time flies!), and since my camera and setup have changed enough since then, I decided to re-review of the ColourPop blushes that I recently received (with the new-for-spring shades) earlier this month. Holiday was substantially different compared to the original shade I reviewed, hence the 2019 designation in the shade name! 🙂

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.

Hmm, y’know what? This may well have just become my fave out of all these pinky-corals CP sent you! Definitely rich enough to show up on my skin even during the dead of summer, yet, still very springtime feeling!
