Good Luck Charm
Colour Pop Good Luck Charm Pressed Powder Blush ($7.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium-dark, coppery orange with moderate, warm undertones and flecks of gold micro-sparkle throughout. When applied and blended out, it had more of a satin finish–subtle sheen and a few stray sparkles but not overtly shimmery. The texture was soft, a little thinner but not quite as powdery as some of the brand’s blushes have been, so it was easier to pickup and to control.
It had good color coverage in a single layer, which was more than described (formula is designed to be buildable), but a lighter hand could achieve more buildable application if preferred. The blush applied evenly and blended out without difficulty on my skin. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of 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.
