Take the Cake

ColourPop Take the Cake Pressed Powder Blush ($8.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a brighter, medium pink with subtle, warm undertones paired with a mostly matte finish (there was faint gold sparkle that didn’t really show up once applied). The texture was soft, somewhat powdery, and on the thinner side, so it was more prone to adhering strongly–and not blending out as well–if applied over bare skin or unset foundation.

It had rich color coverage, which may be an upside for some, but the blush formula was intended to be buildable, and it took some care to get that result. The color showed signs of fading after eight hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.13 oz. - $61.54 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.

After yesterday’s perfect offering…..a substandard blush. I think CP puts out a lot of these shades and it would be more inclusive if they added other shades to their range. I just that they always seem to be within the shades of pink/coral/peach.
