ColourPop My Type Pressed Powder Blush ($8.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a brighter, medium pink with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with two layers. However, it was supposed to be a sheerer, more buildable product–it was more pigmented than buildable.

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 a 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 that 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 were difficult to blend out. The wear was between seven and eight hours on me on average.
