Colourpop Coin Purse Super Shock Cheek Review & Swatches


Colourpop Coin Purse Super Shock Cheek ($8) is a limited edition blush shade that launched with the Colourpop x Hello Kitty Collection recently! This sweet pink shade is definitely something I can picture Hello Kitty wearing!


As you know already, Colourpop recently teamed up with Sanrio to create a limited edition Hello Kitty Makeup Collection in a variety of products for lips, eyes, and cheeks!

Colourpop Super Shock Cheek Blush ($8) comes in a metallic red and blue box that features a silhouette of Hello Kitty’s tiny head peeping up on both the box and the pot of the blush!

Colourpop’s blush formula reminds me of Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in texture as it has a creamy clay-like texture that feels squishy but does not retain its shape when pressed into. I find the formula is a hybrid as it has the feel of a creamy blush but sets to a satiny finish on cheeks. It’s pretty customizable as you can either wear it as a sheer wash for a natural look or built up for more of a pop! Coin Purse is a matte finish bright, cool watermelon pink that has excellent pigmentation so, a little goes a long way (I went sheerer for my look below).




I find the Colourpop Super Shock Cheek formula has a nice seamless finish but can be a pain to apply as with fingers it tends to be a bit patchy and with the wrong kind of brush I get similar results. I’ve discovered a fiber brush with shorter, softer bristles works best to buff color onto cheeks. There’s a little trial and error when finding the perfect brush to use but once you do you’ll find the blush applies flawlessly. I use the Ecotools Complexion Collection Skin Perfecting Brush myself and although a little scratchy it gets the job done well! The wear time is fantastic at around 10 hours with fading at that 10 hour mark. I always like how natural and smooth these look on my cheeks as they don’t cling to drier areas the way a powder would look and the finish appears much more natural versus a powder.


Colourpop Coin Purse Super Shock Cheek is a pretty, fun shade of pink that’s worth picking up!

It’s currently sold out! But hopefully will get it back in stock again soon.

I purchased this item.

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    So pretty!! Mine is in the mail on its way to me. Also ordered the adorable makeup bag as a Christmas present for my brother’s girlfriend.

      I didn’t get the makeup bag and have minor regrets sad sigh 🙂 Stop back Jen let me know what you think of the blush!

    Musey girl, that blue make you eyes look so beautiful! And the blush by Color Pop is nice. Makes me want to dig my CP colors out( I’m sure I got a pink blush that I have and have not used lately) and check back in when they are back in stock to pick it up. 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      Aw thanks Blee! I wasn’t sure, the color makes me look tired but I love playing with it 😀 You probably already have a shade like it 🙂

        I think the blue sets off your gorgeous dark brown eyes and makes me want to try some blues too. i’m stuck in neutral! (ha!)

            if you’re old, i’m old & i’m not old! I refuse to be! I’ll have to play with the bolder colors on the weekend so if there’s a big mistake it can be fixed instead of looking like a 5yr put on my makeup that day.

            & you’re welcome!

          • Isabella Muse

            LOL me either let’s stick with that 😀 heart you!

    Looks nice! I thought it would be too bright so I passed.

    I like using an elf stippling brush for ColourPop’s blushes.

    • Isabella Muse

      totally can wear it bright or sheerer! I applied it with a lighter hand, so it was quite sheer here 🙂

    I had this in my cart and then changed my mind at the last minute lol. Kinda wish I would have stuck with it because it looks very pretty on you! I hope it gets restocked soon!
