ColourPop The Golden Child is a very warm-toned, light-medium taupe with a metallic finish. It is a limited edition highlighter that retails for $8.00 and contains 0.15 oz.
ColourPop The Golden Child Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a "soft, coppery gold." It's a muted, medium-dark rosy bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had opaque coverage applied with a fingertip and then semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable covoerage applied with a stippling brush. The consistency was smooth, very emollient, and blended easily on the skin both with brushes and fingertips. The color wore well for nine hours on me.

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. WHEN FINISHED: Close that sucker up tight! Don’t leave the jar opened for long periods of time; you may lose some of the magic that makes the Super Shock Cheek so amazzzing. Colour builds from natural- looking flushed looks to more intense bright looks. … Build to your heart’s desire!.
