Parallel

ColourPop Parallel Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, medium peony pink with subtle, warm undertones and a golden sheen. It was more pigmented than anticipated–semi-opaque to opaque with fingertips, though it was easily sheered down for more medium coverage as I blended and spread the product across my skin–and truer to the medium, buildable coverage claim when applied with a stippling brush. The texture felt wetter than most of the Super Shock Cheeks, but it was incredibly easy to diffuse and blend out on my skin. It dried down and set, but it did not lose its luminous finish. On me, it wore well for 10 hours before fading slightly.

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Whoa! Impressive! I definitely don’t need blush, but every now and then I think about the fact that I don’t have any Super Shock cheek products and I wonder idly if I should get some just for the sake of it. And then the mood passes. 🙂 I almost certainly will some day, I’m just in no hurry.

Wait, I lied … I have two highlighters, but since my mind was specifically on blush when I “misspoke” and said I had no cheek products, I’m going to go ahead and say that this was all a misunderstanding. 🙂

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
