Showtime

ColourPop Showtime Super Shock Cheek Highlighter ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a soft, pinky-lavender base with flecks of larger sparkle and some pearl. It had less of a metallic sheen on my skin as it just had a bit of a pearly sheen. It had medium, buildable pigmentation applied with a brush and semi-opaque coverage applied with fingertips. The texture was spongy but drier to the touch, so it didn’t feel quite as smooth as other shades within the formula. There was a very suble to shift from pink to violet on my skin, but it was hard to see even in person, close-up, and contorting myself to find it. The cream highlighter applied fairly well and blended out nicely on bare skin but wasn’t quite as easy to work with over foundation. It wore well for nine hours on me before it started to fade noticeably.

There are white highlighters that still allow ones own skintone to show through nicely, like the one you reviewed yesterday. This is not like that. It looks like it would appear very ashy on me.

The “flecks of larger speckles” turns me off. Pearl (or pearly sheen) sounds good, but I’ve never understood the desire to have flecks of stuff on one’s face. I know some make it work, and more power to them, but … no.
