ColourPop Parakeet is a very warm-toned, dark pink with a matte finish. It is a permanent blush that retails for $8.00 and contains 0.13 oz.
ColourPop Parakeet Pressed Powder Blush ($8.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage--not what I would consider buildable!--with a smooth, silky consistency that had some powderiness in the pan but did not appear dry applied to the cheeks. Even with a light hand a mere tap of my brush into the pan yielded a lot of coverage quickly, so the blush would be more suitable for someone who wants higher coverage out of their blushes. The texture seemed creamier and was easier to diffuse along the edges, and I did not struggle with unevenness in the initial application as I have with other shades in the formula. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.
