Today I have a 3-in-1 review for you of a couple Colourpop Supershock cheek products. This includes two blushes and a highlighter. I tried several Supershock cheek products before and I reviewed one of the highlighters I tried. And as much as I love the Supershock line for one and done eyeshadows, the cheeks products had yet to really wow me. After trying a few blushes from the Wine & Only collection which I did like, I decided to give a few more a bit of a try. So this review includes the Supershock highlighter in Happy Thoughts and two blushes in Magic Moon and Chiffon.
Review: Colourpop Supershock Blush & Highlighter Magic Moon, Chiffon & Happy Thoughts
Colourpop is known for their Supershock formula. This cream to powder formula now comes in a bunch of products but I believe eyeshadow is what they did first. I have tried a few highlighters before, for instance Flexitarian and Hippo and while I liked them, I ended up having other things in my collection that I found easier to use. I am not one to give up easily though and if a product is only $8 and I can grab a few things on sale, it’s easy to get a hold of a few more products to try out. This review includes to products from last year’s Tinkerbell collection which no longer seem to be available. That said, Colourpop often releases products that are very similar so I am sure you can still find similar shades in this formula.
Colourpop Supershock blush in Chiffon
Chiffon is a Supershock blush that is part of Colourpop’s standard line. It wasn’t one I picked out originally. But I heard Angelica Nyqvist raving about this shade and I thought I could try it. Chiffon is a sheer, nude base with a peach to pink shift. It’s called a blush but I feel this has too little color payoff to really give off a blushed look. It is stunning as a blush topper though and that’s how I used it in the pictures below. The sheer formula means you could even use it as a highlighter if you wanted to and it would suit your skin tone. Against my fair skin it is a bit too deep for it work as a highlighter.
Colourpop Supershock blush Magic Moon
Magic Moon was a blush shade I wasn’t originally interested in either (which is why I picked these up late). But again, I heard a Youtuber raving about it (Nikki Raven) and I figured I could try it too. Magic Moon was part of the Tinkerbell collection and is a pretty peachy coral shade. When I looked at this online it looked very orange to me, but the way this sheers out on the skin is very pretty. Not a shade I can wear year round but for summer it is very pretty. It reminds me of Benefit’s Coralista which is one of my favorite summer time blushes.
Colourpop Supershock highlighter Happy Thoughts
I had decided that Happy Thoughts would be the last Colourpop Supershock highlighter I would try. I have tried several and didn’t love them all and this one seemed promising enough so I decided to give it a whirl. And it is very pretty. But alas Happy Thoughts is too dark for me. I can make it work just fine, especially now that it is summer, but for more of the year this will not work. It simply has too deep a base for it to be pretty on the cheeks and leaves a dark cast exactly where I apply it. I can get away with it for sure but it is just a little too much for what I like going for.
How do these Supershock cheeks products apply?
These may very well be the easiest ones to work with I have tried so far. Colourpop Supershock products can be a bit of a learning curve when you first get them but with these I feel I had no issues applying them. They are still best applied using a makeup sponge for the most natural and seamless effect. You can use a brush but I feel that disturbs my base makeup underneath. In these picutres you can see the products going on: top left is my bare cheek, top right is just highlighter and the bottom two pictures are Magic Moon and Chiffon topped over Magic Moon respectively. As you can see the full combo gives a very pretty shiny cheek that is perfect for summer.
My final thoughts
Colourpop Supershock cheek products are some lovely products to play around with. I have to say I prefer the blushes over the highlighters and of the blushes I have tried my favorites are always the ones that have a bit of a sheen to it. They sheer out beautifully and give a natural, neutral look for everyday. You can build up to more intensity as well if you want something more full on and these last really well on me too. If you have issues with blush disappearing on your cheeks though, these may not be the best pick.
Would I recommend the Colourpop Supershock cheek products?
I would recommend the blushes but the highlighters not to much. This is the fourth Supershock highlighter I have tried and they are just never my favorites. I have other, better just as affordable products in my makeup collection I like more. The blushes I like and I think they make for a great beginner friendly cream blush pick if that’s what you’re looking for. If you are not in the US thought you may want to wait for a sale and make sure you can order enough to at least make it to free international shipping. If you add up all the additional fees you will have to pay, buying from Colourpop can get expensive but I find that if I wait and I save up enough products to buy around $100 in total I can still get a good deal on these.
