ColourPop Pretty Thing is a slightly cool-toned, medium-dark berry with a luminous finish. It is a permanent blush that retails for $8.00 and contains 0.33 oz.
ColourPop Pretty Thing Blush Stix ($8.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with subtle, cool undertones and a natural sheen. It seemed to have very, very subtle pearl in it, but it could just be the way the light catches the dewy finish, too. It had richer pigmentation when applied directly from the tube and more medium, buildable coverage when applied with fingertips or a brush, as marketed. The consistency felt smooth, more like gel-cream hybrid as it spread easily across my skin (even over foundation), blended easily, but retained some dewiness. It wore nicely for eight and a half hours on me before fading slightly.
