Whole Nine Yards

ColourPop Whole Nine Yards Pressed Powder Blush ($10.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with moderate, warm undertones and larger, gold micro-sparkle over a satin finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a soft, slightly powdery texture that seemed a touch drier to the touch, though it didn’t read dry or dusty when applied to my skin.

This shade wasn’t quite as blendable as would be ideal, so I’d recommend applying it over powdered (or more matte) skin to ensure it didn’t stick too strongly to any particular area during the initial lay down of product. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

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.

Out of all 4 of the blushes in this collection, this is the one for me. I’d still much rather have the brand’s Cat Eye blush from the Sailor Moon collection, though. But, I do believe Whole Nine Yards could easily work for me since I always powder before applying cheek products.

Very pretty but I have two of the dupes and one of them cost me an arm and a leg so I use it when I want something with this colour story. I have the Chanel Rose Petillant but purchased it when it was out of stock and I couldn’t wait to get it so ordered from Toshiya,(FudeJapan) and got it in record time but it did cost. I haven’t been ordering anything from outside the US because of the issues with the post office. I was ordering some ribbon and flowers from a shop in Thailand and the cost of postage was more than twice the cost of the products. I contacted the seller and she said that the US Postal service had more than doubled their rates for international deliveries. I am not going to get into the politics of it but not bailing out the Postal Service to further your own agenda is criminal.
