Before we delve into a review and swatches, I have a short little anecdote. When I was perusing Colourpop’s website for some products to review, I stumbled upon this blush. With the name Fox and the color description Coral, I kinda thought it would be a coral-y orange shade, kinda like a fox y’know? Anyways, this baby made the list and was purchased immediately. To my surprise, this blush is a bright, neon pinky-coral shade. No orange whatsoever, which disappointed me a bit. However, it never said there was orange in the description, so it’s my own fault for thinking there was. Maybe I still have that Ylvis song on the brain, who knows!
Despite my error in judgement, this blush is quite a stunner. Very intimidating at first glance, but with the proper application Fox can make your complexion rosy and warm. 🙂
First, Colourpop.com’s official description: “You’ll be a stone cold fox in this mid tone warm coral in a satin finish“. Uhm, swoon! ❤ Forreal, these color descriptions sell themselves you guys. Look at any product on their website, they’re all so clever and cute!
Now, my description and review: In certain lighting, Fox in pan looks nearly red/pink; it’s that dark of a coral. There is a very slight amount of shimmer, giving it the satin finish. The pigmentation is buildable, in the swatch picture below it’s one swipe on the right and two on the left. Colourpop’s blushes/eyeshadows/highlighters have a very interesting texture. In pan (or pot) they feel creamy, almost spongey? (sounds gross, I know!) When applied though, they act as a powder. You get the most pigmentation using your fingers to apply.
Using my finger, I applied a small swipe to the apples of my cheeks and diffused it quickly. These blushes lock into place, so blend while you can! Overall, I feel like it gave my face a lovely glow, adding a little color to my normally ghostly-pale complexion. After using this vibrant coral, I’m thinking about trying some of the more subdued shades from their line. In the pictures I’m also wearing Colourpop’s highlighter in Smoke N Whistles, another great product! Review will be up shortly for that one as well. 😉
Such a gorgeous flush! ❤ This beautiful blush is very reasonably priced at $8 and can only be purchased on Colourpop’s website here.
