|Cheerio, Spoon, Prenup|
Just one last post about Colourpop and then I'll shut up, I promise (until I go to the US again and buy more, muahaha). I recently invested in a few new shades of Colourpop's creamily blendable bouncy blush and highlighters, this time challenging myself a little with a bright shade, Cheerio, and treating myself to the kind of dusty soft pink I love, Prenup.
Cheerio is an amazing blush, and one which many people (me included) would be a little scared of. It's RED. It's INTENSE. It's also slightly SHIMMERY. So much room to go wrong. But if you go right - and you can do, by applying starting with the apples of your cheeks with a teeny tiny swipe of product - it's lovely. A really fresh, winter flush which makes you look like you've been twirling round a park in the snow, laughing gleefully, with a terribly cute pompom hat on.
Prenup is, unsurprisingly, a great everyday blush - it's matte, it's soft, it's pink - and it's a particularly great shade if you're super pale, as I am in winter. I find I can (and do) apply this one much more heavily than Cheerio, for obvious reasons.
Spoon, now... Spoon and I have a love/hate relationship. On one side, Spoon is a lovely icy highlighter, perfect if you dislike gold. On the other side, Spoon is, well, glittery. And not everyone wants a glittery highlighter. I've worn it a couple of times to parties recently, but I think it's just a little too glittery for day to day wear, unless of course you enjoy rocking glitter in the day.
As always, these little cheek pots are a mere $8 each, making them a bit of a steal. Even if it is a glittery steal. Find them and more at the Colourpop website, and keep hoping they'll start shipping to the UK soon.
