Overdramatic

Colour Pop Overdramatic Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark copper with warm, rusty-red undertones and a matte finish. The blush had good color coverage in one layer when applied with a fingertip, and it had more buildable coverage from semi-sheer to mostly opaque when applied with a stippling brush, which was in line with the marketing.

The denser, more clay-like texture–velvety and smooth to the touch but never felt wet or really cream-like–responded better with fingertips than brushes, as I felt like I had to use a firmer hand to really swirl and drag my brush into the product for coverage. It does apply well with fingertips (which has always been my preferred method of application for the Super Shock Cheeks anyway!) as it goes on evenly, diffused with little effort, and smoothed out my skin texture slightly. I had no trouble applying in over bare skin or on top of foundation, though it took more layers to really build it up with a brush. It stayed on well for nine and a half hours before fading visibly.

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.

Super autumnal and fresh! I really like this one a lot, actually. Especially since my pot of Quarters has dried out so much, this could possibly be a decent replacement.

This is another pretty blush from ColourPop. I have been really into blushes lately and it is an area where my collection is a little light. Granted, I have plenty and the majority match my preferred colour palette so I may not need some of the less unique shades but my shades are sadly lacking in what I would call fall/winter shades and this one reads fall to me. I have expanded my makeup purchasing, e/s mostly, to include more shades of orange/peach/brown and I don’t have any blushes in that range with the exception of Becca Tigerlilly which I am not sure why I bought it other than it was so pretty to look at!! I think I have used it once but plan to use it a lot more. I am still looking for a couple of blushes that would work with a red lip. I wear a red lip a lot and have never been happy with whatever blush I have paired with it. CeeBee recommended a tawny shade so that is an area I will look.
