Who doesn’t love a good glowing face? Highlighting is the trending thing in the makeup world, so I wanted to try out the highlighters from ColourPop and I picked the shade “Candyman.”
We took our famous Super Shock formula and added luminous pearls and glimmer to create the perfect crème powder highlighter.
Get your fix with this metallic rich gold.
My Experience with ColourPop Super Shock Cheek Highlighter Candyman:
The highlighter comes in a white plastic jar/case, with a see-through screw lid. The jar came in a white unit carton. The shade name is mentioned at the back of the jar. They suggest to screw on the lid real tight to avoid affecting the product quality. Overall, I think it’s pretty out there and convenient.
“Candyman” is a super bright yellow, bronzy gold shade. It is not very yellow, but it is definitely bold gold. It looked way different in the swatches than what it appears to be. It will definitely suit warm tones of skin, especially Indian skin. I have warm-toned fair skin and it suits me so well. I don’t know how it would go on pale skin though.
Let me talk about the thing I love about this highlighter – the texture and formula. It is just so amazing! It feels so smooth and buttery that my finger just slides on the pan. I think it is more of a creamy highlighter but based in a pan. It applies super smoothly onto skin and does not give me a textured finish. It is insanely pigmented! It is just crazy how much colour payoff it has. It is best applied with a sharp highlighting brush and works okay with fingers but gives a patchier finish.
It gives me an amazing glow which looks pretty much natural in pictures. It stays for almost all day but fades away with time. The shimmers are not at all gritty or anything whatsoever and they are easy to remove as well. They don’t travel all over the face either. One thing to be careful with this shade is that it is easy to go overboard and because it is a gold, it might not look flattering. I love, love this highlighter so much for its amazing formula.
I think I rambled more than usual, so summing up the pros and cons:
