ColourPop Truffle Shuffle Blush Review & Swatches
ColourPop Truffle Shuffle Pressed Powder Blush ($8.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle through a more matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was more than marketed (though not wholly inconsistent with a lot of shades I’ve reviewed in the formula).
The texture was smooth, lightly powdery in the pan, but it applied fairly evenly and wasn’t too difficult to blend but not the easiest to diffuse. I’d recommend applying over a more matte finish (like set foundation) as a result. It lasted for eight hours before fading visibly on my skin.

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.

All I can muster up for this is “meh”. Like, how many of these types of pinks has CP put out already? It’s getting to be rote.
A pretty shade, but not the best formula from CP.
Hee, hee. Gotta love the name. The color is pretty, but so overdone.
