Wildcats

ColourPop Wildcats Pressed Powder Blush ($12.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a very light, peachy-coral with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It looked pretty subpar when I initially swatched on my arm, but it applied quite well to my cheeks–like in a way that even had me going, “Whoa,” in surprise.

  • Semi-sheer to medium, buildable coverage
  • Lightweight, thin, finely-milled and moderately powdery
  • Blendable, picked up readily with a brush, a touch dry on drier skin
  • Long-wearing (eight hours is typical for this formula)

Formula Overview

$12.00/0.13 oz. - $92.31 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.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Whoa indeed!
The swatch looks really dry, powdery and generally bad, whereas the blush looks absolutely lovely when used on the cheek. Interesting and not too uncommon, unfortunately it goes both ways with swatches, they can look gorgeous and still the product just doesn’t work, it’s a lot nicer when it’s this way.
