Sailor Moon x ColourPop Cat’s Eye Pressed Powder Blush Review & Swatch

Heyy dolls!

I decided to take a week off from blogging to regroup and take time for myself during this pandemic. I am feeling so much better after making a few changes (e.g. deleting Facebook off my phone and not actively looking up news articles).

Now I am ready to start blogging again and I will be reviewing the products I got from the Sailor Moon x ColourPop Collection. I am just so excited to share my thoughts with you after trying everything in March. I will separate everything so as to not overwhelm you or write insanely long posts. But ok, let’s just get started!

Product Description from ColourPop Cosmetics:

A rich blush that glides on smoothly and leaves cheeks with a natural and healthy flush. This formula contains silky powders that adhere to the skin, providing long wear and colour that stays true all day! This soft-feeling blush blends evenly and can be layered to your desired intensity.

Packaging

First of all, the packaging is AMAZING! I love that the outer packaging is a lenticular image, it is so 90’s! Honestly one of my favorite things from my childhood. I did my best to photograph the lenticular images from different angles so the camera was able to pick them up fairly well.

I like that the blush comes in cardboard packaging and it includes a mirror which is handy, however, some people have pointed out that it makes it harder to recycle with a mirror. So one thing to keep in mind if you’re trying to reduce your carbon footprint.

Formula & Application

The first time I used this blush, I wasn’t feeling it but it wasn’t until after I posted my first look that I remembered I didn’t use face primer at all that day. Therefore, the blush had nothing to stick to and it was barely visible and faint on my cheeks. Trying to build it up didn’t help much either.

The blush feels a bit on the dryer side on the pan and it was hard to swatch without dipping in the pan more than once. However, that was no representation of its actual performance. I was pleasantly pleased (and surprised) with this blush the more I used it throughout the month.

One of my favorite things about this blush is the embossing of Luna. It looks so kawaii!! I’ve dipped into the pan several times over this past month and I am still able to see the embossing clearly! It has not faded unlike other products with embossings.

The second time I used it, I wore a primer and foundation and dipped into the pan more and saw a lot more color on my cheeks than I expected. Usually I have to build up my blush a lot before seeing some results, but had no trouble with this one. It was relatively easy to blend out as well.


Swatch, Shade & Longevity

So I got the shade Cat’s Eye, and compared to From the Moon, this one is more of a watermelon / peachy-pink shade. These kinds of shades tend to be my favorite and I reach for these more than pinks because they suit my skin tone better. While pink eyeshadow suits me fine, the same cannot be said about blushes, hence why I chose Cat’s Eye.

Cat’s Eye definitely looks more natural on me which I appreciate. I can either use a light hand for a light, soft, wash of color or build it up for more dimension on my cheeks. Regardless of how much I layer it, its longevity is pretty amazing. It lasted all day on me, even when I spritzed a facial spray over my face to refresh my skin.

As I mentioned earlier, it was hard to swatch, and probably even more so considering I was using a stencil, but in spite of that, it applied easily, blended well, was buildable, and lasted all day. I wasn’t sure about the formula and its price at first, but was genuinely surprised as it’s my first time trying a CP blush!


So those are all my thoughts on this blush! I think it’s the perfect shade for spring time and it’s great that it was released just in time. If you haven’t seen my lookbook using this blush and the rest of the products, be sure to check it out before I review everything else.

What do you think of this blush?

  1. Pretty sure I liked the other shade better, these bright peaches aren’t my kind of tones but it looks great. in my opinion, blushes rarely swatch well because they are less pigmented but I definitely prefer them like this

    1. lol i’m the opposite, pinks don’t suit me so i go for peachy ones. must be our undertones. i prefer my blushes to be buildable as well, i’ve tried a few in the past that were FAR too pigmented and had a hard time blending them out

      1. I can get away with warmer colour but I definitely prefer cool ones, like now I’m legit obsessed with the Dior Rosy Glow, you know? Cooler than that there’s nothing hahahah

    1. It has a “pearlized” finish with silver pinpoints, but I didn’t notice it much when I wore it? I think it also depended on how much I layered on my skin, but for the most part it looks matte on me. I’ll have to double check again and see if I can see the pearly finish lol

        1. Some blushes with a bit of shimmer are quite nice, it all depends on how much they have, they give the skin some luminosity that I love but I’ve also tried some pretty terrible ones that look like I used highlighter on my cheeks lol.

    2. Shoot I got carried away explaining the finish I forgot to also mention the swatch haha yeah it is so cute but was hard to swatch it that way lol. I’m glad it performed better than how it swatched. as for the packaging, totally adorable!! I agree.

  3. I hope you’re all doing well,I am so proud of you for taking steps like limiting your exposure to news especially on Facebook. Blogging is a great thing right now, even I’m trying to get myself involved again. This collection is just fun to look at it, brighten ups my day.

    1. I am doing much better now. Thank you. And yeah, blogging does brighten up my day. Which is why I don’t want to stop, but I also cant fully commit to being here if I’m not well because then the quality of my content suffers. This collection is definitely super cute

  4. Colourpop always has so much cute packaging and collabs! I love how you did the swatches with a cat stencil, it looks really cool! I’m with you on stepping back from social media and reading all the articles at this time, it really gets you into your own head and doesn’t lead anywhere good. Take time to step back and just chill 🙂

    1. I started re-watching it last year over the summer just to watch it and now that I’m an adult, it’s definitely different but still kinda great as I feel I’m reliving my childhood lol 🙂
      Yes, limiting my time on social media has done wonders for my mental health overall, especially in these difficult times. ❤ 🙂 hope you're also doing good!!

  5. Oh my gosh, I didn’t even know what lenticular meant at first until you said “so 90’s” & then I knew exactly what you meant lol. LOVE that the packaging is like that!! 😍 Totally agree that the shade is perfecf for spring time & will work just as well in the summer too. The embossing is adooorable & that’s awesome it hasn’t faded yet. 🙂 Glad the blush worked out so well on top of primer & foundation!

    1. yeah lenticular images were totally popular back in the 90s it was so cool seeing that in a makeup collection 🙂 and i’m glad they had that for the eyeshadow palette too!
      i think i will really like this shade in the summer too, i really need to find a few products and just wear the shit out of them because i so badly want to hit pan on a few things haha
