Spellbound

ColourPop Spellbound Super Shock Cheek (Highlighter) ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a pale, icy lavender with cooler undertones and flecks of pink and lavender sparkle and glitter. It has a glitter finish, which has larger particle sparkle/shimmer and a sheer base (more coverage in terms of shimmer/sparkle). If you’re someone who loves a glittery highlighter or enjoys patting glitter on top of other cheek colors, this could be a good one to consider. The texture was smooth, lightly spongy but not overly wet, and it had good transfer from fingertips to cheekbones, so I was able to get good “coverage” via glittery bits and sparkles without having to really rub and press it on. I did find that fingertips made it easier to get an even layer of glitter on the skin compared to a brush. It wore well for nine and a half hours with very little migration.

I think this kind of glitter highlight would work so much better than something like the Cover FX glitter drops, which just seems like too much product no matter how little I use. I haven’t used glitter on my cheeks since elementary/middle school, but I think it could have a pretty effect when done very lightly on the apples of the cheeks. It would be fun to experiment more with something like this.

Hi Celesta, I know you have tried everything to make the Cover FX drops work for you but just wanted to share how I use them and then if you haven’t tried this then it is something to think about. I take a very small amount onto the back of my hand or a palette. I prefer my hand as warming the product up helps a lot in applications. I blend it out on the back of my hand and then use a medium Elf stippling brush to apply. I don’t seem to have any problems with application this way so thought I would mention.

I can ‘t help it, I love glitter, and it seems that 99% of the beauty bloggers and YT’ers dislike it. I don’t care if I want to act like a twelve year old–glitter makes me smile!

Beautifully ICY glow! If I didn’t already have Tarte Believe in that palette I bought last year, I’d get this icy cool sweetness!
