Quarters

ColourPop Quarters Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with warm, red-orange undertones and faint, golden pearl. It had buildable pigmentation from semi-sheer (when used with a stippling brush) to mostly opaque coverage (when applied with fingertips), which was as marketed. I tend to like using fingertips as they’re quick and easy, and I use the pad of my index finger to pick up and pat on color, then use the side of my index finger (with no product on it) to spread and diffuse the edges to my liking. The consistency was smooth and velvety to the touch, clay-like as it indented with pressure but never felt wet. It applied evenly and stayed on well for 10 hours without fading on me.

P.S. — With the new-for-spring shades, ColourPop also sent samples of other shades from the permanent range, which I originally reviewed in 2015. I’m re-reviewing as four years is a good stretch of time, and I also wanted to have updated, higher-quality photos/swatches into the database! 🙂

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.

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

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!

I have a very old pot of Quarters. Not sure what sort of shape it’s in either, as it’s been over a year since I last used it. However; this one appears slightly cooler, less yellow based and not as flat matte looking. As long as my eyes are not deceiving me, I love this version way more!

Always thought I liked this one….and I do. but was afraid it would pull too coral. Hey, not. Duped by summer fling, though. SSCs are great, performing as well as many UHEs. Thanks.
