ColourPop Cosmetics has definitely stepped up their game! With the constant influx of new products and collaborations, it is easy to see why this brand has become such a staple within the beauty community. And the best part? The majority of their single products within the price range of $5 – $8 USD ($6 – $11 AUD), so you can see why their products are a major hit.
I am a huge fan of their super shock shadows/cheek collections, so that is what today’s blog post is going to be all about. Let’s get into it!
(Note: it was VERY cold when I took the swatch photos, therefore I have goosebumps so the swatches don’t look as smooth as they usually would)
Super Shock Highlighters
Flexitarian – intense white champagne; hands down my favourite highlighter shade from Colourpop Cosmetics! I love using this not only on my cheeks but as an inner corner highlight as well as it really intensifies any eye look and takes it to another level.
Lunch Money – soft light gold; perfect for that ‘ glow from within’ look!
Over the Moon – sheer opalescent pearl with hot pink and violet glitters; I know this looks a little scary, but it really adds such a beautiful shimmer to the skin which changes colour when the light hits your face in just the right spot.
Perilune – sheer opalescent pearl with green and gold glitter (discontinued)
Honeymoon – sheer opalescent pearl with blue and violet glitter; I know this one looks a little scary also, but I think it would be great to wear to a festival or if you are just going for a super bold highlighted look.
Super Shock Blush
Birthday Suit – neutral pink; I love using a small duo fibre blush to layer this shade up on the skin. I will say that these blushes aren’t my favourite and they definitely aren’t SUPER pigmented, but I think for someone who can go overboard very easily (heavy hand syndrome anyone?) that really helps me out as I HAVE to build it up to get the colour payoff I want.
Cruel Intentions – warm rose; this shade seems scarier to me than the others, I think because it is noticeably darker. However, like I said, these blushes aren’t SUPER pigmented and therefore you do need to build it up to get a good colour payoff. That works great for this darker shade as I could easily end up with ‘clown cheeks’.
Between the Sheets – beige-pink; definitely my favourite shade of blush! Again I usually use a duo fibre brush to apply to the skin and gradually build up until I get the desired colour I am after.
Super Shock Bronzers
Skinny Dip – matte warm brown (not on the website, possibly discontinued); love using this as a bronzer all over my cheeks and along the top of my forehead.
Wisp – golden champagne with gold pearls; technically Wisp is a highlight shade, however, due to my very light skin tone, I definitely wouldn’t be able to pull it off as a highlight unless I was SUPER fake tanned. I think it is an absolutely stunning bronze topper and would be great if you were going for a super glowy/bronzey makeup look.
