ColourPop Extra Glazed 4-Pan Cheek Palette


Extra Glazed

ColourPop Extra Glazed 4-Pan Cheek Palette includes one cream highlighter, one shimmery powder blush, and two matte blushes: champagne gold, pearly mid-tone pink, brighter, matte pink, and matte, rosy brown. They were fairly as-marketed with respect to pigmentation; the blushes were more buildable and hard to over-apply, though they had enough payoff to show up on skin.

Smoke ‘n Whistles

Smokin’ Whistles is a pale, champagne gold with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had more opaque pigmentation when applied with a fingertip, while sheerer, more buildable coverage could be achieved by applying with a brush (as marketed). The highlighter had a smooth, more emollient texture that felt almost wet to the touch but had that spongy consistency signature of the formula. It stayed on nicely for 10 hours before fading a bit.

Pink Velvet

Pink Velvet is a light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and cooler pearl throughout. It had medium, buildable pigmentation with a soft, silky-smooth texture that was lightly powdery. It applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with ease, while the color lasted well for eight hours before fading noticeably.


Swirled is a brighter, medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage that was buildable to mostly opaque coverage with three layers. The consistency felt soft, smooth, and was blendable on my skin, but it was somewhat powdery and tended to adhere better to my cheeks (which aren’t as dry as my arm)–I didn’t notice any dryness/powderiness in practice, just on my arm. It wore decently for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

Strawberry Strudel

Strawberry Strudel is a light-medium, rosy brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation (to semi-opaque with three layers) paired with a moderately powdery texture, though it felt finely-milled and silky. The product applied better to my cheeks, which were more normal-to-dry in type compared to my arm, which was drier. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.
