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.

Formula Overview

$10.00/0.13 oz. - $76.92 Per Ounce

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.

Early 80’s spiral permed, bleached highlights, yellower complected Nancy wore EXACTLY this shade of blush nearly daily! But I could back then because of having healthier coloring to my skin and having a seriously punk aesthetic. Not now, I don’t think? My skin appears more of a dull putty peach olive lately, so. Oh, and in recent years, it flushes red in the heat! Not sunburn, but literally flushed and odd looking on my arms and upper chest. Idk why?

You may have the beginnings of a sun allergy, Nancy. My daughter is allergic to the sun and it has progressed from flushing to actual hive type raised areas if she is in the sun for any length of time. It started about 15 years ago. She uses SPF and that does help but depending on how long she is out there, it still breaks through. She isn’t great about reapplying on her body. She is good about the face and neck. Her allergy seems mostly on her upper arms, chest and cheeks. It isn’t like a sunburn because it doesn’t turn to tan it just goes away.

Beautiful shade, but way too intense for me! I’m glad I have CP’s Flamenco Blush Stix. Similar shade, but super easy to sheer out to a light wash of pink.

I guess I’ll have to get both strawberry blushes next time I order. I should have ordered them with the palette, but my sieve-like mind didn’t think about it.
