ColourPop Trippin’ Pressed Powder Blush ($8.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy brown with flecks of gold micro-sparkle over a more satin-like finish. The blush looked more satin-like as it was buffed and blended out on my skin. It had medium, buildable pigmentation that sheered out a bit when applied.
The texture was powdery, thin, and drier, and it culminated in an uneven application of product that seemed to “sink” into my pores and give a patchy, dotted effect. I’d recommend applying it over very well-powdered skin; it still was patchy over a matte foundation but was just barely-noticeable when applied over set and matte foundation (but never worked over bare skin for me). It stayed on for eight hours before fading.

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.
