Why, Hello

Colour Pop Why, Hello Pressed Powder Blush ($8.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The blush had a very powdery, almost clumpy, consistency that felt silky to the touch but dry upon application. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was hard to build up as the powder didn’t adhere to itself well, so I just wasn’t able to get much more than medium coverage out of it. When I blended it out, the color tended to lift and sheer away, but at least it did not look splotchy. It wore well for six hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$10.00/0.13 oz. - $76.92 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.

I wish this was better! The swatch looks so delicate and lovely, like a rose, and the color is right up my alley. I’ll look at the Physician’s Formula, I guess.

What an epic fail on CP’s part! I find it very bizarre that they produce such lovely highlighters, bronzers and some fantastic blushes within their Cheek SS’s, yet they cannot seem to do regular pressed powder blushes very well? I’m truly perplexed!

Me too, Nancy! The texture is totally different between the blushes and highlighters, so it’s not strange once you try both, but I wish they had gone more the route of the highlighters with the blushes!

These seem like such a disappointment considering how good the super shock cheek products are! 🙁

I am normally happy to spring for Colourpop without having seen swatches or reviews because most of their products are really good, plus they’re inexpensive – but I hesitated over the pressed powder blushers (mostly because the colour range didn’t seem very exciting) and now I’m glad I did!

Thanks for the review, even if it is an F…

Something about the blush formula just hasn’t worked well for me. Even some of their so-so products are usually workable, but these were tough!

I just purchased four blushes from Coffret D’Or through Tohisha on IG and I am hoping that they will be a nice formula and hopefully round out my collection. I have a couple of SS cheeks from ColourPop but have never really found a shade that I absolutely love. The quality was fine just nothing that really spoke to me.
