ColourPop Kiss n’ Tell Pressed Powder Blush Review & Swatches

Kiss n’ Tell

ColourPop Kiss n’ Tell Pressed Powder Blush ($8.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a light peach with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The blush had a soft, somewhat powdery texture with some excess product that kicked up in the pan, but it did not appear granular when applied and blended out on my skin.

It had a mostly opaque color payoff, which was more than marketed, that applied evenly to my cheeks, though it was barely visible on my skin tone (just for reference). It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading a bit.ColourPop

Formula Overview

$8.00/0.13 oz. – $61.54 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to go on “smoothly” and have a “natural and healthy flush” that has “long-wear” and “can be layered to your desired intensity.” It is a lightly to moderately powdery powder blush with a semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable color payoff. The consistency has a drier, thinner feel, and though it feels silky to the touch, I found it the type of powder blush that can be tricky to blend out evenly on the skin, depending on one’s skin type or base preferences. The drier the skin/base, the better the formula would blend, but any natural oils or slip caused the blush to go on unevenly and were difficult to blend out. The wear was between seven and eight hours on me on average.
