ColourPop New Lowes Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a "cool-toned berry." It's a medium-dark berry with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable coverage from semi-sheer to mostly opaque with a natural finish that wasn't shimmery but not totally matte. The more this is blended out (and sheered out), the more it appears as a stain. The texture was smooth, thin, and a little drier compared to the more shimmery shades in the cheek color range. It was fairly blendable, but it wasn't quite as effortless as Santos. It wore well for ten hours before starting to fade. Kevyn Aucoin Grapevine #3 (PiP, ) is lighter (95% similar).

Fingertips will provide the highest amount of coverage. Brush suggestions: Use a flat synthetic cheek/ foundation brush or a short duo fiber brush; flat synthetic brush will give more coverage and the duo fiber brush will give a more sheer, air brushed effect.
