ColourPop-Super-Shock-Cheek-Blush-More-Please-3

ColourPop Super Shock Cheek in More, Please

Availability: ColourPop
Price: $8.00

Company’s Description

Fingertips will provide the highest amount of coverage. Brush suggestions: Use a flat synthetic cheek/ foundation brush or a short duo fiber brush; flat synthetic brush will give more coverage and the duo fiber brush will give a more sheer, air brushed effect. WHEN FINISHED: Close that sucker up tight! Don’t leave the jar opened for long periods of time; you may lose some of the magic that makes the Super Shock Cheek so amazzzing. Colour builds from natural- looking flushed looks to more intense bright looks. … Build to your heart’s desire!

ColourPop’s Super Shock Cheeks are cream-powder hybrid blushes that are available in dozens of shades. This review is for the shade More, Please, which is a vivid fuchsia with a violet-blue duo chrome in a pearlized finish.
