Colourpop Super Shock Cheek in Thumper

I absolutely love Colourpop. I own a huge amount of their Super Shock Shadows and Super Shock Highlighters – more than I would like to admit if I am honest. Out of all of their products, I feel that I have neglected the Super Shock Cheeks slightly. The shade range never really jumped out at me & cream blushes have always been something that I shied away from. However, in my last order, I decided to give them a go and ordered Thumper.

Thumper is a beautiful bright, blue toned pink blush. I absolutely love it. Although matte, it really helps to brighten you complexion. I have found that I get around 8 hours wear time from Thumper – significantly better than other cream blushes I have tried in the past. The formula is like no other product I have tried before. The Super Shock Cheeks feel very soft but are less ‘wet’ than the eyeshadows and highlighters. They have a rather thin formula but are extremely pigmented. Initially, I was unsure on how best to apply them and have tried a few different ways. For the lighter shades, I use my fingers to apply the product and then blend it out. However for brighter shades like Thumper, I use the ELF Studio Stipple Brush. The two work perfectly together.

The packaging is similar to the Super Shock Shadows, although slightly bigger. The white plastic pot comes with a screw lid and a clear window which allows you to see each shade. This is extremely helpful when you own more than a few shades. The only problem I have with the Colourpop packaging is how to store them. At the minute I have been stacking them in my makeup drawers, however this makes it hard to find the shades you are looking for. I would love to know if anyone has any suggestions.

I am extremely glad that I gave the Super Shock Cheeks a try. The only problem I have is the shade range on offer. Other than Thumper, there are no other shades that really jump out at me. Despite this, I am tempted to order a few more, hoping that they are more impressive in person. There is also the issue with extra charges. Unlike many others, this does not bother me. I love Colourpop and therefore will continue to order from their website & put up with the custom charges I receive. The products are more than worth it.
