Just a Flush

ColourPop Just a Flush 4-Pan Cheek Palette ($18.00 for 0.3 oz.) is a lighter-leaning set of shades that includes a cream-to-powder highlighter, powder bronzer, and two powder blushes. The highlighter performed the best for me, while the blushes could have been more blendable/easier to work with, especially over bare skin.

In my experience, ColourPop’s powder blush formula has a really smooth, silky consistency that can be on the more powdery side (which helps ensure it is more buildable than not) sometimes emphasizes dryness on my skin. I did find that to be true with these to varying degrees, as they were a little thin, flat, and weren’t always as effortless to apply as I would expect.

So Healthy

So Healthy is a light gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage applied with a fingertip and more semi-sheer, buildable coverage applied with a stippling brush. The texture was smooth, emollient, and wet to the touch, but it turned to a more powder-like finish as soon as it came into contact with my skin. This shade applied well over bare skin as well as on top of foundation. It lasted nicely for nine hours before fading a bit.

Feisty Much

Feisty Much is a very light brown with soft, warm golden undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, moderately powdery, but it had medium, buildable pigmentation so it was difficult to over-apply. The color applied best over drier/more matte skin, e.g. powdered skin, as it could become hard to spread and blend out on bare skin. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.

ColourPop’s Pressed Powder Bronzer is supposed to have a “super velvety-soft” feel that yields a “natural tanned glow.” There was no mention of coverage, but the brand’s promotional swatches showed full coverage. The bronzers had a soft, silky texture that was slightly powdery in the pan but tended to apply with ease, blended out nicely, and sat well on the skin. The majority of the shades seemed to have a semi-matte to satin finish, which helped them glide on and appear more natural (in finish) on the skin. The wear ranged from eight to eight and a half hours on me.

Just Cheeky

Just Cheeky is a very pale pink with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had medium, buildable color payoff paired with a soft, silky-smooth consistency that was a little thin and somewhat powdery. The formula almost “clumps” together when finger-swatched, but it has an airier feel that picks up very well with a blush brush.

While I sometimes have issues with this formula, this particular shade was more blendable than most for me. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.13 oz. – $61.54 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to go on “smoothly” and have a “natural and healthy flush” that has “long wear” and “can be layered to your desired intensity.” It is a lightly to moderately powdery powder blush with semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable color payoff. The consistency has a drier, thinner feel and though it feels silky to the touch, I found it the type of powder blush can be tricky to blend out evenly on the skin, depending on one’s skin type or base preferences. The drier the skin/base, the better the formula would blend, but any natural oils or slip caused the blush to go on unevenly and was difficult to blend out. The wear was between seven and eight hours on me on average.

Sassy Pants

Sassy Pants is a muted, medium pink with nuetral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It looked cooler in the pan than the powder did swatched (both more heavily and then applied to my skin, the latter I’d expect to lean warm based on my skin tone and undertone).

The texture was smooth, thin, and somewhat powdery, but a less-dense brush picked up product evenly and deposited it fairly well. I find the formula is more apt to sticking, particularly if there is any natural oil or dampness (whether from one’s skin or base products) so it blended best over powdered skin for me.

The blush had medium, buildable color coverage, which was as marketed. It lasted for eight hours on me before fading visibly.
