Swatches & Review: ColourPop Super Shock Blushes!

Hello friends! I'm here with a few more ColourPop products for you, the super shock blushes! I am absolutely obsessed with their lip products (a massive swatch post can be found here!) and eyeshadows (featured in my February favourites!) so it was about time I tried out the blushes - I have 8 swatches to share with you and I'll let you know how I feel at the end!

(L-R: Holiday, Trickery, Prenup, Mochi)

Holiday is a matte mid tone peachy pink - one of the colours I've used the most and love! Easy to wear every day.
Tickery is a satin finish and described as a pastel peach - makes my skin super glowy!
Prenup is another satin finish and I LOVE IT, a mid-tone plum with pink - great for the colder weather here and paired with a purple/plum lip!
Mochi a matte bright blue based pink!

(L-R - Early Bird, Pie, Fruit Stand & Clutch)

Early Bird - a bright red coral matte - I love this shade
Pie - a matte finish neon bright pink - the swatches can't even show how bright this is!
Fruit Stand - a neon red orange matte - pretty!
Clutch - described as a vivid rosy red, I prefer this really sheer and it makes my cheeks super flushed and healthy looking!

All of these are $8.00 and they come in 3 different finishes (matte, satin and pearlized) - the thing I love most about these are the texture and formulation, they are a cross between a cream and a powder - they're extremely soft to touch and all shades I own are pigmented. They do take more work to apply - ColourPop recommend you using your fingers however I found that doesn't entirely work for me and I can't get them to blend out smoothly enough - I use a mix between my fingers, a duo fiber brush or even my damp beauty blender and they look amazing and have a great staying power!

ColourPop are constantly releasing new shades and have quite a large range for these and they've now released highlighters! 

I wouldn't pick these over some of the other blushes I own and love (LimeLily, MakeupGeek, Milani, Elf) but that's because ya girl is lazy and in the mornings, I want the quickest and easiest routine ever however I do really like these and I'm happy to own/use them!

As always, thank you for reading! XO
