Rocket Science

Colour Pop Rocket Science Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light lavender with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling, pearly sheen. It had medium, buildable coverage and a noticeable sheen on the skin. On my coloring, it was subtle and would work better as a highlighter than as a cheek color, but on very fair skin tones, I imagine it would be an easy blush to wear. The texture was smooth to the touch, mousse-like so it was a touch “wet” in feel but not thick or overly emollient. It applied evenly to my skin, blended out nicely, and stayed on well for 10 hours.

Even though I do have Nyx Lavender Steele, and absolutely love it, I also love this one, too! This has a more subtle purple tone and has a “wet” look that I would love for summertime, I think.

I been staring at it looks so beautiful!
At Target they have the Nyx Lavender Steele on clearance thee are still a few plus other beautiful reddish, brick colors. I’m on a makeup diet so resisted to my everlasting temptations. So hard! Lol! But I’m strong. 🙂

Lol! Trying hard! Today I went with my mom having a makeover for her birthday at Sephora. Oh! The challenge! I got a few things just two items for my daughter’s birthday. Mom & daughter’s birthday both in February. Thanks! 😊
