Product Description

Highlighter This long-wearing crème powder cheek formula is the BFF of our famous Super Shock Shadows; it shares the same unique texture that is extremely buildable and blends smoothly to leave the cheeks looking healthy.

Application Tips

Fingertip application will provide the highest amount of coverage, and for a more sheer look we suggest using a flat synthetic cheek/foundation brush or a duo fiber brush. A flat synthetic brush will give more coverage and the duo fiber brush will give a more air brushed effect. Colour builds from natural to intense, build to your heart’s desire!

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
  • "i love this highlight! i have dry skin, so powder highlights look chunky and textured on my skin. this formula is smooth and buttery, and definitely hides the texture on the high points of my cheeks. depending on the shade you chose, there can be a lot of glitter, but sometimes that's just the look i'm going for! i have 3 shades and hope to get more soon. " in 841 reviews
  • "i have the shade flexitarian and it is the most blinding highlight i own. i don't like highlighters with a lot of sparkles or glitter flecks, because i have oily skin and they tend to wear off and at the end of the day, i am left with specks of glitter on my face – this does not do that. i really like the formula as they are easy to blend, especially with fingers. this might be too blinding for daily wear, but great for an extra attention to your face. i honestly don't know how it applies on darker skin (i'm nc20 on mac), because it's very white and bright." in 586 reviews

These highlighters are really good and I love that they have a creamy feel to them. They’re perfect to apply with your index and middle finger or a beauty blender. (I don’t feel like they work as well with a brush) I did take one star off for 2 reasons. The first being that you HAVE to remember to put the lid back on, and put it on nice and tight because it will lose its consistency very easily if not sealed correctly. Secondly, and most importantly, these do crack easily. The first time it happened I had one in my makeup bag in my purse so I just figured it was inevitable, but it’s happened again with one that just sits on my makeup stand and has never been dropped or anything like that. The reason I still kept this review at 4 stars is because these highlighters really are beautiful plus you get ALOT for what you pay, so if one does crack, it doesn’t break the bank to replace it. As a matter of fact, my cracked one is still usable so I didn’t even have to replace it. One other thing worth mentioning is that a lot of their highlighters have shimmer in them so just make sure you read the description on the website very well because it does tell you. Overall, I do recommend these! You really can’t go wrong, especially with the price!

Review for: Lunch Money (soft light gold with pearlized finish) more...
Lunch money highlighter was my first CP highlighter I ever bought. It’s a light gold champagne undertone with no obvious in your face glitter chunks. I have combo skin which I’m learning appreciates more of a hydrated feel. I usually prep my skin with moisturizer, spot B.B. cream my face and apply lunch money wherever I want a glow. The color is absolutely gorgeous. It creates a very ethereal, dewy, healthy and natural glow. I put it on my cheekbones, nose tip, Cupid bow, brow bone, and a little on my forehead. The texture of this is so awesome. I’ve never had something like this before. I find applying with your fingers is best. The pot itself is very bouncy, almost creamy consistency that blends effortlessly on your skin. I find it super easy to apply on my face and I love how dewy it makes me look. I find myself grabbing this more often than my high end Becca highlighters. Super affordable too, I ended up getting some purple highlighters.

Review for: Glazed more...
This is really one of my favorite highlighters! First of all, it’s really affordable for only $8. All of them give you an AMAZING glow, some more glowy or brighter than others. I think the texture is really cool because it’s soft and silky. Definitely make sure to close your cap tightly or your highlighter may crack. I find the best way for application is with your finger because it will give you more of a stronger glow but if you want more of a subtle glow you can use a brush. I have gotten a lot of compliments on my highlight when I wear this! I took a picture of Glazed with and without flash.

Review for: Flexitarian (intense white champagne with pearlized finish) more...
I was in search of a champagne colored highlighter for quite some time so I decided to purchase this product. The price was great! However I was not too thrilled with the shade. I feel as if the shade was too white for my liking / the looks I was trying to accomplish. I hardly saw any champagne. Because it is so white I personally do not use it on my cheeks because no matter how I blend it / apply it, it is way too dramatic and does not blend well with my complexion. I’ve since began using it as an eyeshadow as well as a highlighter to brighten the inner corner of my eye. The formula is great though and it has a creamy consistency as opposed to a powdery consistency. I would purchase a highlighter from ColourPop again, but not this exact shade.

Review for: Flexitarian more...
i’ve been on the hunt for a extremely blinding highlighter suited for my pale skin. after trying becca moon
stone, different anastasia glow kits, the balm mary lou manizer, etc, i saw a kathleen lights video where she said she used this for her photo shoot. i picked up this highlighter and the moment i put it on, i was in love. it looks like a mirror on the cheek. it is so smooth and stunning, however, due to its creamy texture, it needs to be applied with a finger, because a brush cannot pick up the gorgeous cream highlighter. it is definitely not for the faint of heart, but if someone is looking for a blinding, ultra reflective highlighter for pale skin. i would recommend this. i would definitely buy again!

So I've only ever tried one highlighter from colourpop called "High Five" it was one they had temporarily and it's technically a pearlized super shock cheek highlighter. I LOVE colourpop and I hear their highlighters are very good but this one is different and maybe because it was a limited edition one that they released for reaching 5 million followers on Instagram. The problem I have with this one is that it's pretty on the cheek but it has large pieces/chunks of sparkle in it and those pieces end up getting all over my face just by applying it with my finger. I've tried using it twice and it's so frustrating to work with because of this. I do want to try another one of their highlighters because I'm sure it will be really pretty!!

Review for: Wisp (golden champagne with gold pearls with pearlized finish) more...
The super shock highlighters are a creamy powder formulation that I find is best applied with the finger tips, dabbed along the cheek bones, and other areas you want to shine! The highlight is BEAUTIFUL and long lasting, with a wonderful price point of around $8. I love this shade (wisp) for my everyday wear. It is a beautiful gold pearly shade that gives you a sweet, summer glow or (when applied more heavily), the wet mermaid pool side look! I got mine at Ulta, but actually got on ColourPop's website to order more products because I'm so impressed with their creamy powder formulas. They feel so good on, and aren't at all drying and don't highlight fine lines like other brands can! ColourPop Super Shock Highlighter

Review for: Lunch Money (soft light gold with pearlized finish) more...
I wear this highlighter almost everyday. I love that you can use it lightly for a more natural look, to really layering it for a more dramatic effect. It is honestly so gorgeous on the skin. It blends beautifully with other products, and gently smooths over them, without removing the foundation, powder, etc. that is below them. There is also a ton of product in that tiny container! I have had it for two months, used it almost everyday, and I haven't made a dent in it. I will say that you need to make sure that you seal it very tightly. Since it is a cream product, you don't want to expose it to air or it will dry out. Luckily, I have not had a problem with that.

My favorite highlighter of all time! My personal favorite is Hippo, which is an icy lilac that looks beautiful on my fair skin tone. I also have the shade Honeymoon, which is an icy blue glitter highlight, which I absolutely love as well. There is a wide assortment of shades in the line and is great if you are looking for an everyday highlight or wanting to experiment with more colorful ones. I mostly use a brush to apply, my go to is the Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman Setting Brush , but if you dont have a suitable brush, you can also just use your finger and it works just as well. The highlight is buildable, so it can look natural and glowy or blinding. $8 is an incredible price for such a high quality product. They are in the same type of packaging as the ColourPop Super Shock Eye Shadow Collection , but there is about double the amount of product in the highlighters. Im so obsessed with colourpop's brand, you can never go wrong with any of their products!! This is a must have product!

Review for: Wisp (golden champagne with gold pearls with pearlized finish) more...
I finally got to try out this highlighter when Coloupop came to my local Ulta and I am so impressed! I have very dry skin and was worried this cream product would emphasize my texture and look cakey, but alas, it looks flawless on my skin. Also, from what I've seen, there is a wide range of shades and undertones to choose from which makes me super happy. One tip: At first, I tried to apply it like I've seen on IG ( a heavy handed swipe with a brush and then dabbing it with a Beauty Blender), but it just looked like a streak of oil. My best advice would be to warm the product up with your fingers, dab it on, and then blend it out with a finger or sponge.

So I've been looking into getting some highlighters and I've heard pretty good things about colourpop. But people always tell me Anastasia Beverly Hills is the one to go with? Does colourpop stand a chance?

Does this come up too shiny on oily skin?
