Your favorite blush-obsessed girl is here with yet another blush review lol! There’s no denying that I’m absolutely dying over pretty much every blush on the market so when Colourpop Cheek Dew Serum Blushes was announced, I knew I needed one. Or two… okay maybe three. I went ahead and tested them, swatched them, and obviously wore them in order to give you all the details on these new liquid blushes.
Besides this product looking so cute, it also has skin-loving ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C. As I said in my previous post. the Charlotte Tilbury Hyaluronic Happikiss Tinted Lip Balm Review, that the trend for this season (if not longer than a season) is makeup with skincare ingredients. These Colourpop serum blushes are a great example of this trend!
Colourpop Cheek Dew Serum Blushes
So what are these Colourpop Cheek Dew Serum Blushes exactly? Colourpop describes them as: “A lightweight, mistake-proof liquid blush that blends into the skin like a dream with customizable coverage to create the perfect flush of dewy, healthy-looking color.” I got three different shades:
- Psst: a warm mid-tone rose with a natural, dewy finish
- Tumble 4 Ya: a muted cool-toned pink with a natural, dewy finish
- Hotline: soft warm pink with a natural, dewy finish
The retail price of the Cheek Dews are $7 each and contain 13.5g (0.48oz). I noticed that all three shades are cruelty-free (Colourpop is a cruelty-free brand so this makes sense) but none of these three shades are vegan, whereas some other shades (Kiss Kiss and Rumours for example) are marked as vegan. I just picked the shades I liked the most and they happen to be all non-vegan, but if vegan products are important to you Colourpop has that option as well!
When they first arrived and I saw the packaging, I was kinda scared I picked colors that were going to be too pigmented for me. Thankfully, once I swatched them on my arm the fear went away because these liquid blushes are sheer. No worries, they’re also buildable if you’re looking for some more pigment! I prefer building a blush instead of having way too much on my face in one swipe so this is perfect.
As you can tell by the swatches (and I’m also sharing some looks where I was wearing one of the blushes below) the formula is indeed dewy and leaves a lovely glow but not to where you look oily. Moreover, the formula is lightweight and melts into the skin while not feeling sticky.
You have to be careful with squeezing the tube to get the product out though because you can easily get too much product since it’s runny. I’d rather squeeze twice than the waste product because I squeezed too hard lol. I don’t think this is a bad thing but it’s good to be aware of.
My personal favorite way to apply cream or liquid products (as well as every other product) is with a brush so that’s what I’ve tried and immediately could tell that it works perfectly fine. Besides a brush, I also tested applying the product with a sponge, which also worked very well, and applying it with a finger without having any problem.
I’ve worn the blushes on their own and with a powder blush on top, to kinda set it into place, and neither of them gave me any wearing problems. My foundation beneath it stayed in place all day, just as the serum blush itself. I can conclude that you don’t have to set this blush in order to make it stay on all day. However, I have normal skin so I’m not sure how this would be for oily skin. I personally think setting it with a soft layer of a powder blush will work.
I have to admit that they all three look very similar on the cheeks as you can tell by the picture above. If you’re interested in getting any serum blushes, you might want to pick just one out of these three because of their similarities.
Overall, I don’t have anything bad to say about these Colourpop Cheek Dew Serum Blushes! I personally really love them and I’m sure I’ll be wearing them a lot!
