Colourpop Blush in Thames and Flush'D

Saturday, July 30, 2016


Another day, another Colourpop review, and this time it's something cheeky! I will be reviewing the two Colourpop blushes, Thames and Flush'D.

Vital Stats

Product Weight: 4.2 gm
Price: $8
Status: Cruelty-Free

Ingredients

From Colourpop website

Packaging



  • Comes in a standard Colourpop white tub, with a transparent screw on cap. 
  • The actual product itself is housed inside a metallic pot in the plastic tub.
  • Bulky packaging takes up a lot of drawer space.

Product

  • The product is very mousey, squishy and bouncy like Colourpop eyeshadows.
  • There is a pattern overlay on the blush, which disappears once the first layer is through.
  • The product will dry out fast if kept open for long.

Shades


Thames: A cool dusty pinky mauve shade with a matte finish. This shade was part of the Alchemy collection which is currently not available online.
Flush'D: An apricot-coral shade with a semi-matte finish. Though advertised as matte, one can clearly see the sheen and the sparkles. This shade was part of the Kaepop collection.

Performance 

  • Application is very tricky:
  1.  On applying the product with fingers, I couldn't blend the product and I was left with finger marks across my cheeks.
  2.  On applying with synthetic brushes, the brush couldn't pick up enough product, and the result was not very flattering.
  • Very pigmented and a little goes a long way. 
  • Wore well without fading for 8 hours.
  • Colours showed up beautifully on my tan skin.
  • Looks super natural when blended, but blending itself is a pain.

Swatch



No face swatch, as I am down with viral flu, and I have been roaming around in my pajamas, with hair tied up in a bun for the past 3 days. Not a pretty pic to post online!

Verdict

I would give them a miss considering the pain in the <places you don't want to name> application process. If you are a cream blush person, definitely try one from this SuperShock Cheek range to see whether you love it or just feel MEH!

Have you tried any of the Colourpop's cheek products?
