Honeymoon

ColourPop Honeymoon Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a very light, bright white with iridescent shimmer that shifted from aqua blue to violet. It was very, very glittery, and on the skin, it looked like sparse glitter that applied with little rhyme or reason. I felt like there was no real sheen or highlighting effect, just random sparkle. The texture felt smoother than it looked, and it didn’t seem like it was going to have such a translucent, barely-there base. There was definite fall out during the day, though what little “sheen” I saw lasted for eight hours.

Over the Moon

ColourPop Over the Moon Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a very light lavender with a cooler, white base and flecks of pink and lavender sparkle. It had sheer coverage that wasn’t buildable, and it did not seem to matter whether I applied with fingertips or a brush–it was always sheer. The base seemed to be nearly translucent on the skin, and the effect was mostly glitter/sparkle with little sheen. Some of the “sheen” lasted for eight hours, but a lot of the sparkle had migrated or gotten lost during the day.

Perilune

ColourPop Perilune Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light, greenish-gold with warm undertones and a sparkling sheen. This shade had a stronger base color, though it was still sheer to semi-sheer (even applied with fingertips). It also had less larger sparkle, so it produced more of a noticeable sheen and actually highlighted the skin. The texture was soft, lightly wet, and blendable on the skin and did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. This shade wore well for eight hours with some sparkle that had migrated over time.

How sad! I was considering these since I missed out on the Anastasia pallette that had some more unusual highlighters πŸ™ the makeup geek ones look more promising though, but pretty pricey (for me)

hmm. I wonder if these would perform any better if layered over another highlighter, like Over the Moon could add extra ~sparkle~ over UD Aura or Looki Goddess.

I have all three of them and I use them patted on top of another cream highlight like Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops or Love Luxe Beauty Dramatizer Drops.

Yeah that was another thought as well, layer them over another cream. I also use a sponge to apply cream blush/highlighter and someone else said that using a damp sponge gets them better coverage and less fallout.

I’m also looking at Shiro Cosmetics new cream highlighters. I had a bad experience with them, but that’s been 2 years now so I might give them another try, since those highlighters look awesome.

Oh, this is sad! I would *love* these colors if they performed well! Colour Pop usually does so well with cheek colors, why do they have to fail when they try to do *my* colors??!!

I held off because I was trying to decide between these and new MAC highlighters, so glad I did. Looks like I will go with MAC Beaming Blush instead. I have Monster from ColourPop –it’s a bit too light and pink for me in summer, better for me in winter, but the quality is much better than these.

Your reviews are spot on, as always. I bought these right when they came out and don’t really know what to do with them now. They’re just glittery. I did find that if you layer them carefully over eye shadow, they can add a pretty sparkle effect. But you will get glitter fallout all over. They were good for Halloween and that is about it.

Stupid me. I bought Perilune a few weeks ago without waiting for your review. I’ve only worn it once. It looked BAAAD. Like I had put an UD Moondust on my cheeks instead of a highlight! Yuck!

Glad I didn’t by these as I was tempted by their descriptions. I bought one of the holiday highlighters so hopefully that’s more in line with what I typically experience with this formula.

I think these are the first real misses in the cheek range… I believe I’ve had a handful of more matte shades be drier/harder to blend, but the shimmery ones are usually quite nice.

These are really pretty, but too chunky to be worn alone as a highlighter. I could see myself layering a little over a better highlighter for some sparkle, though.

These highlighters were marketed as being “glittery” when they were first released. When swatched I agree they are quite disappointing, but for cheeks these are gorgeous applied with a damp sponge. I didn’t notice a ton of fallout, either. I was also able to build them up with the sponge. The effect, however, will not be desirable to someone who doesn’t like an extremely in-your-face metallic highlight.

Just to clarify… I don’t have an issue with them having glitter – the issue is more that they have no real base color and the glitter migrates/falls off the cheeks (for me).

I use a Real Techniques contour sponge to apply cream blush & highlighter, so that’s good to know!

(I’m also someone who likes really stand-out metallic and glittery highlights πŸ™‚ )

It’s funny, because I seriously considered ordering one of these when I placed my Hello Kitty collab order, but the only swatches I could find seemed really sparkly and not very pearly. I can handle a little sparkle in my highlighter, but more than that & it’s a dealbreaker!

I bought Anastasia’s Moon Glow kit earlier, and I love it (I’m actually wearing Lucky Clover right now!), and I picked up the Fair Trio from Makeup Geek’s new highlighters, which are also lovely. I’m so happy to see that I’m better off with what I have as far as “unique” highlighters go for my very fair skin! Thanks for your honest review as always, Christine! πŸ™‚

I have Perilune, and I like it! It appears to me far more green in the pan than it does in your photos. I think it’s a really neat color. It’s definitely glittery/sparkly, but I don’t mind that so much on certain days. I personally didn’t experience fallout.

Hmmmmm… the pigments used looks more like the larger spark mica than the finer one. My favourite is still my loose Naked Cosmetic Ivory Collection stack of pigments that can be used on the skin and eyes. They are 15 each though or $10 each in the collection so it’s not as cheap as colourpop here.

Sometimes I jump on colourpop products right away without waiting for your reviews, but for some reason I decided to wait on these…even though I’m all about crazy fun colors and duochromes. SO glad I didn’t impulse buy them now!!! Thanks Christine!!

:/ I was super skeptical of these when I saw the swatches on the website. They looked like utter glitterfests. So glad to have waited for the review so I can buy the Looxi highlighters of similar colors!

I have both Over The Moon and Honeymoon, and I do find they both work best over the top of another (usually powder) highlighter, in my case Nyx Strobe of Genius. I find myself using them more for inner corner highlights and browbone on normal days, but on Halloween I caked those suckers on and looked like a glamorous sparkle-fairy!

I do REALLY wish that the duochrome was stronger with these though. :/
