ColourPop Stryke is a moderately warm-toned, dark copper with a satin finish. It is a limited edition blush that retails for $8.00 and contains 0.15 oz.
Stryke is described as a "rusty red with copper and gold highlights." It's a slightly muted, medium-dark coppery--red with warm undertones and a soft, golden shimmer. It had good color payoff and a natural finish that didn't emphasize pores or look too flat. The consistency was creamy without being too wet or tacky, and it blended easily on the skin.

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.
