So Intense: Colourpop Blush in Cheerio & Prenup, Colourpop Highlighter in Spoon

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.
