Colourpop My Sun and Stars Pressed Powder Blush ($7) is a fairly new blush shade that launched with one of Kathleen Lights’ collaborations (I believe it was the Horoscope Collection she did with Colourpop).
I picked this up because it looked like a really pretty NARS Orgasm-like shade and we all know how I lust and pant over NARS Orgasm anything. But most important there’s that Dany and Khal reference.
The most annoying thing about Colourpop My Sun and Stars Blush or any Colourpop blush is the fact they sell them without a compact. You see, I’m anal. I keep the packaging for everything. I don’t depot anything. If this makes me a hoarder so bet it! My skin literally crawls when I see people de-potting things and putting them in Z-Palettes. If that’s your thing you won’t be bothered by the fact that Colourpop sells all these blushes without a compact. If you’re a weirdo like me and need a case they’ll sell it to you for an extra $2 bucks which makes the blush a total of $9. The blush is 0.21 oz in size so really $9 for the case and all isn’t too bad a deal.
Colourpop describes the shade as a vibrant yellow pink with a golden sheen. People, I don’t even know WTH a yellow pink would look like but if this is it I now officially love yellow pinks! As for my take on it, I’d call it a golden pink that’s very reminiscent of NARS Orgasm but not a complete dupe but pretty darn close. It has a beautiful golden shimmer that didn’t cling to my drier areas as the formula was very finely milled, soft, and silky. It gives cheeks a luminous peachy glow that looked so pretty! It’s fairly pigmented right out of the gate so start slow and build as it is pretty pigmented. It wears well for a solid seven hours and shows minor fading at hour eight but never lost the beautiful golden glow!
All in all, a beautiful shade that I hope isn’t limited edition as it’s well worth picking up a backup of! At this price why not?
