ColourPop Super Shock Cheek/Highlighters ($8.00 for 0.15 oz. each) launched fifteen shades ranging from cooler beige to icy lavender to warm purple. It’s a cream-based formula that is similar in feel to their Super Shock Shadows and Cheeks, but the formula is slightly more emollient than most of the original blush range but comparable to their more metallic eyeshadows. In general, the finishes range from luminous to metallic, with a few shades having more noticeable sparkle that sits on the skin but doesn’t seem to migrate to parts unknown. The pigmentation was mostly opaque when applied with fingertips, and then more buildable from semi-sheer to opaque when applied with a brush (as described). Personally, I enjoyed these more than the blush range, as they were really, really easy to apply (no learning curve!), long-wearing, nicely pigmented, and several were duochromes, which is hard to find in a blush formula. My personal favorites were Highly Waisted (A), Monster (A), Butterfly Beach (A+), and Sticky Sweet (A), but I enjoyed them all.
