Seed U Later
Colour Pop Seed U Later Pressed Powder Blush ($7.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pink with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented, where a little went quite a long way, so it was a far cry from the “buildable” descriptor of this formula (one of the big “downsides” of a lot of ColourPop’s powder blushes). The texture seemed thin, but I was happily surprised that it applied evenly and blended out with ease, despite the intensity and thinness (which typically adheres too strongly and doesn’t blend as well). It seemed to incorporate well with the natural oils on my skin and ended up having more of a skin-like finish–matte but not flat. It wore well for nine hours on me before fading noticeably.

The formula is supposed to go on "smoothly" and have a "natural and healthy flush" that has "long wear" and "can be layered to your desired intensity." It is a lightly to moderately powdery powder blush with semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable color payoff. The consistency has a drier, thinner feel and though it feels silky to the touch, I found it the type of powder blush can be tricky to blend out evenly on the skin, depending on one's skin type or base preferences. The drier the skin/base, the better the formula would blend, but any natural oils or slip caused the blush to go on unevenly and was difficult to blend out. The wear was between seven and eight hours on me on average.
