ColourPop never fails to deliver must-have products. Just when you think you’ve got enough makeup to last you a lifetime, they go and roll out another collection that you have to purchase. How is ColourPop’s "Excuse My French" Pressed Powder Blush different? This item is a first for the brand, and you can shop it in their latest spring launch.
This blush comes in a pressed powder formula. The brand has tested out pressed powder eye shadows and then moved to highlighters and bronzers, but they hadn’t released a blush in this formula until now. You’ll find this hue in The Knockout Palette along with a beautiful highlight shade.
Together, this duo will have your beauty routine prepared for the season. The great thing about the pressed powder formula is that it can be easily housed in a palette, making it great for on-the-go usage. Before now, ColourPop’s blushes came only in their Super Shock formula, which has to be stored in an airtight container. It’s a creamy consistency, where the powder version is matte. Personally, I’m a fan of the Super Shock formula, but when it comes to ColourPop — they do no wrong. So, whether you shop a pressed powder version or a creamier Super Shock option instead, you’re in for a treat!
This palette holds pefectly peach-y shades. Excuse My French is pictured on the left side, and the highlight, Likes To Watch, is on the right.

The matte coral shade will add just the right amount of color to your cheeks.
As you can see, it's highly pigmented looks great on a variety of skin tones.

Here's an example of a Super Shock Blush, just for comparison. This hue also became available to shop as part of ColourPop's Spring 2017 collection.
As you can see, there's just as much color payoff with this formula, but there's more of a pearlized finish. This creamy version will definitely give you more of a dewy look.
You can find out more about the new formula from your favorite ColourPop marketing team, Jordyn Wynn and Sharon Pak. One aspect that they mention in the video is that this blush has a silky smooth feel. I definitely like the sounds of that. You can also count on it to deliver major color and apply evenly. Score!

Fans went wild for the other pressed powder formulas from the brand, so if I were you, I'd definitely give this new item a try. I mean, besides, it couldn't be more on-trend for spring! Any excuse to buy ColourPop is a good excuse, right?
