Hi everyone! I wanted to share with you my thoughts on another Colourpop product.
Super Shock Blush in Birthday Suit
So this blush is unlike any blush i’ve ever tried. It’s a unique formula. It’s sorta creamy and goes on sort of sheer but is definitely buildable which is nice. Because it has a creamy texture, I found that it goes on easier using my finger than a brush.
Description for the blush found on Colourpop’s site reads:
Our famous Super Shock formula turned creme powder blush creates a natural flush that’s buildable and super blendable for all day wear.
Birthday Suit is not matte, it has a pretty shimmer to it. In the video you can see how sheer it is (this is what it looks like with one swipe).
I put a little more blush on my arm and like it says in the description, the blush is definitely buildable. It’s a very neutral pink that is suitable for every skin tone.
What I like:
- Price (it’s only $8.00!)
What I don’t like:
- Formula – I honestly love the formula for a highlighter or eyeshadow but not for a blush. I wish I was able to use a makeup brush to apply this rather than my finger.
- Shimmer. I love the shade, I just wish it was matte.
I don’t want to discourage anyone from tying this product because it really is unique and it’s such a beautiful color. It just didn’t work out for me. I still use it occasionally, however, I am usually on the go and prefer something quick and easy to swipe on with a blush brush. Because I use my finger with this product, it takes a little time to properly blend and spread the product out. That being said, I use it from time to time, it’s just not the blush I use everyday although it’s a color that is definitely suitable for everyday wear.
