Just a Flush
ColourPop Just a Flush 4-Pan Cheek Palette is a lighter-leaning set of shades that includes a cream-to-powder highlighter, powder bronzer, and two powder blushes. The highlighter performed the best for me, while the blushes could have been more blendable/easier to work with, especially over bare skin. In my experience, ColourPop’s powder blush formula has a really smooth, silky consistency that can be on the more powdery side (which helps ensure it is more buildable than not) sometimes emphasizes dryness on my skin. I did find that to be true with these to varying degrees, as they were a little thin, flat, and weren’t always as effortless to apply as I would expect.
So Healthy is a light gold with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage applied with a fingertip and more semi-sheer, buildable coverage applied with a stippling brush. The texture was smooth, emollient, and wet to the touch, but it turned to a more powder-like finish as soon as it came into contact with my skin. This shade applied well over bare skin as well as on top of foundation. It lasted nicely for nine hours before fading a bit.
Feisty Much is a very light brown with soft, warm golden undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, moderately powdery, but it had medium, buildable pigmentation so it was difficult to over-apply. The color applied best over drier/more matte skin, e.g. powdered skin, as it could become hard to spread and blend out on bare skin. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading visibly.
Just Cheeky is a very pale pink with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had medium, buildable color payoff paired with a soft, silky-smooth consistency that was a little thin and somewhat powdery. The formula almost “clumps” together when finger-swatched, but it has an airier feel that picks up very well with a blush brush. While I sometimes have issues with this formula, this particular shade was more blendable than most for me. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.
Sassy Pants is a muted, medium pink with nuetral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It looked cooler in the pan than the powder did swatched (both more heavily and then applied to my skin, the latter I’d expect to lean warm based on my skin tone and undertone). The texture was smooth, thin, and somewhat powdery, but a less-dense brush picked up product evenly and deposited it fairly well. I find the formula is more apt to sticking, particularly if there is any natural oil or dampness (whether from one’s skin or base products) so it blended best over powdered skin for me. The blush had medium, buildable color coverage, which was as marketed. It lasted for eight hours on me before fading visibly.
