Colourpop Super Shock Cheek in Quarters Review and Swatch


Have you had enough of my lipstick reviews? Well let's go on to the cheeks then :) Here's a review of the Colourpop Super Shock Cheek blush in the shade Quarters. Aside from loving lipsticks, I also love blushes. I have very big cheeks, so why not just love le assets and try every blush color. Right? Haha.


Quarters is described as a mid-tone dusty coral in a satin finish. 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 look to more intense bright looks. Build to your heart’s desire!


Ah yes, the pimple bumps are still there. You can see it from the sides. Lol. Currently using Snow Skincare. Will post a review soon :)


I love Colourpop and I love this blush!

Sometimes I get tired of pink cheeks, so I go coral instead. When I feel like my face is too light, I usually opt for darker blushes like: Milani Cosmetics Rose D' Oro, Ever Bilena Earth, Amethyst, and if I'm not feeling the browns, Colourpop Quarters is my go-to blush.

This blush comes in a circle plastic container with a twist-up cap. This is quite small and bulky when you see it, but it weighs 4.2 grams which is a lot of product. Don't expect a mirror here okay? Think of this as a bigger version of their very popular eyeshadows.

If you've heard of liquid matte lipsticks -- creamy liquid turning matte -- think of this as a powder turning to cream blush. I find the texture of the blush very soft and almost creamy. It's super soft to the touch and I feel like if I press my finger on the pan, it will leave a deep dent. Colourpop reminds us to close the cap or else, you'll lose the magic of the blush.

As described above, this blush is very pigmented and buildable. Build to your heart's desire right? I Googled swatches before I decided to get this shade and on all the pictures I saw, this blush looked super dark. I still went ahead and got this because I wanted something different. I thought it would look good on medium yellow skin and yass! I was right. Upon using it, I think this color looks great on all types of skin tone from fair to dark just because it's a color you can build up and it's not super matte. It has a satin finish, so for those who worry about matte blushes looking ashy on them, this one's a safe color for you.

Longevity would vary depending on how pigmented you applied this blush. As described above, using your fingers would really pack the color on your cheeks. Using a flat top brush with a light hand is quite good and you can apply it evenly. If you have a heavier hand, stippling brushes are for you. Me, I tend to use a dome blush brush similar to the Real Techniques blush brush. I just use it lightly and it can last up to 5 hours. Applying this a little heavier can last the whole day.

Overall thoughts? I already told you guys, I love this blush. This is my go-to if I'm not feeling pinks and browns for le cheeks. This can look super natural and the color is buildable. It has a satin finish which doesn't make your cheeks look dry and it has a slight hint of sheen. No glitters whatsoever though. This lasts half a work day on my oily skin and it fades quite evenly. Sad to say I don't bring this blush on my office makeup bag just because I find it a little bulky. It also doesn't have a mirror too, so it's not really dual-purpose on my makeup bag. Best part? No breakouts experienced.

Where you can get Colourpop in the Philippines? If you're afraid of customs tax and other fees (because we all know our post kind of scks) This retails for PHP 520 at @colourpopph.
