Colourpop Jelly Fish Super Shock Cheek ($8) is a new (and hopefully not limited edition) highlighter slash blush shade with a pearlized finish. This one confuses me kids as I’m not really sure if they meant it as a Super Shock Cheek Blush shade or if it falls into the realms of the new highlighter category since it does have a smooth finish versus the embedded print the original blushes have.
None the less you might just be happy to know that this gorgeous shade works fabulously as a blush!
Ok, so yes, this one does confuse me because I do really think Colourpop Jelly Fish Super Shock Cheek is supposed to be a blush shade and NOT a highlighter. However, the smooth surface quite reminds me of the recent highlighters Colourpop released. On that note, I’m sticking with blush on this shade ok with you? I have to say I really like the smooth surface on this. Colourpop’s embossing is nice but I wish they’d do all their eyeshadow, blushes, and highlighters like this!

This is called a bright red coral with a pearlized finish according to Colourpop but personally I can’t say I really see the pearlized finish they are referencing but the shade is spot on a very reddish coral with incredibly pigmentation. Be careful with this shade because a little goes a very, very, very long way!
I like the texture on this particular shade as it’s very creamy and blends super easily onto cheeks. A brush helps to sheer the color out nicely and provides an even, airbrushed finish. It wears for a solid ten hours on me with very little fading at hour eleven. I wore it to the Governor’s Ball and wore like a champ all damn day without fading and well after my night was over it still remained on my cheeks! I had issues with some of the blush shades being a little too pigmented and Jelly Fish is definitely intense but the texture is somehow easier for me to work with and it sheers out so very easily!
If you never tried Colourpop’s blush range they have a texture very similar to Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush with a squishy clay-like texture. The texture is a bit of a hybrid as it feels like a cream of sorts but it sets to a seamless powder on cheeks. It’s a very smooth, airbrushed set without color clinging to drier areas. I suffered a bit of trail and error with the Super Shock Cheek Blushes when I originally reviewed them as they are a product that has a little bit of a learning curve. Jelly Fish seems a little easier in the application department or I’m just learning how to use them!
Formula aside one of the things that attracted me most to Jelly Fish is the shade. It’s just such a unique and bright shade of coral that’s very, very pretty for Summer looks. I thought it would be particularly lovely on a darker skin tone as it’s a shade that just pops!
All in all this little gem is well worth a pick up and gets a Muse Approval.
