Seismic

Colour Pop Seismic Super Shock Cheek (Highlighter) ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a bright, very light beige with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling, almost glittery, finish with a high-shine sheen. The texture was smooth, thin, and lightly emollient–consistent with the formula–that yielded more opaque coverage when applied and patted onto the skin with a fingertip and more semi-sheer to medium, buildable pigmentation when applied with a synthetic brush.

The product applied well over bare skin as well as over foundation without being prone to lifting it up. I had no trouble building up the product if desired. I felt that it was more sparkly and shiny in person than it translated in photos (where the larger particles just seem to lose something), and for those who prefer subtler finishes, this one is not that–it was intense, sparkling, and wet-looking. There was very little migration of the larger particles after 10 hours of wear.

Boy, can screen images be deceiving. On this device, the HL in your photo looks low beam and not that intense or sparkling at all. It has ~1/3 the beam of your inner corner HL. Far more sparkly in the swatch. On my device, the applied HL looks more like the LM cult one. Just odd.

Seismic is such a gorgeous highlight! But for me, I think I prefer the Quartz(?) shade from the other day as it’s a little bit warmer in tone.

I like the colour, but the sparkly elements don’t appeal to me. However the formula seems to be a good one in that the sparkles don’t migrate across your face and it lasts so long.
