You guys. I recently just bought Colourpop Super Shock Cheek highlighter in Lunch Money, and I would advise you all to do the same, ASAP! (If you haven’t already, because these have been all the rage since last year, and as always I am late with my purchase.)
Soft light gold with a reflective golden duo chrome finish – lunch $$ well spent.
Fingertips will provide the highest amount of coverage. Brush suggestions: Use a flat synthetic cheek/ foundation brush or a duo fiber brush; flat synthetic brush will give more coverage and the duo fiber brush will give a more sheer, air brushed effect. WHEN FINISHED: Close that sucker up tight! Don’t leave the jar opened for long periods of time; you may lose some of the magic that makes the Super Shock Cheek Pearlized so amazzzing. Colour builds from natural to a more intense look. … Build to your heart’s desire!
Honestly, after trying this shade, I want to buy more. In the same color. And then in other colors. Let me tell you right now: the hype about these is totally justified.
Lunch Money is a sublime pale gold which looks absolutely ethereal. It has a radiant, dewy glow, sans any visible shimmer. It is, in a word, perfect.
You get 4.2 g of cream (cream to powder, I guess, but more cream than powder) highlighter for $8. Compare that with Essence Soo Glow (4.5 g for a dollar price I’m not sure of) and MAC Cream Color Base in Pearl (3.2 g for $21). I’ve compared the latter two here.
Honestly, Lunch Money may just have dethroned Pearl as my HG…
Where do I start?
- The shade is love itself.
- The formula. OMG, now I know why people rave about this “bouncy” formula all the time. It is a dream to use; my finger glides over the product and easily picks it up. It is creamy, buttery, emollient. Honestly, I feel like swirling my finger in this all the time.
- Colourpop says fingertips are best for application, and they work well! Saves you the time of finding/using a brush (unless brushes are your jam).
- Money well spent. This is inexpensive yet superior in quality to a lot of high-end brands I have tried, such as Inglot.
- Gives you a gorgeous lit-from-within, I’m-sitting-by-candlelight kinda glow.
- Lasts for 5-6 hours on me on its own, after that it fades gradually while retaining a faint, even glow.
- Can be built up for a slightly stronger highlight.
- Cute packaging.
- Not any obvious meh, but if you like a strobed effect/a strong highlight, this cannot be insanely built up. (You’re welcome to try, though.)
- Also, you have to screw/unscrew the lid, which may not exactly be a time saver.
- Only available online.
I apply this to my cheekbones using my fingertips.
