ColourPop Born to Blush 4-Pan Cheek Palette ($18.00 for 0.3 oz.) is a light-medium set of shades that includes a cream-to-powder highlighter, powder bronzer, and two powder blushes. The three powder products had more buildable coverage paired with slightly more powdery, thinner textures that worked best over matte or powdered skin. The highlighter performed beautifully on bare skin as well as layered over foundation.
In my experience, ColourPop’s powder blush formula has a really smooth, silky consistency that can be on the more powdery side (which helps ensure it is more buildable than not) sometimes emphasizes dryness on my skin. I did find that to be true with these to varying degrees, as they were a little thin, flat, and weren’t always as effortless to apply as I would expect.
Camera Shy is a light and bright, golden peach with moderate, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The texture was smooth, emollient, and almost wet in feel to the touch, though it quickly turned powder-like once I started to pat it onto my skin and blend it out. It had medium, buildable pigmentation when applied with a synthetic brush and more semi-opaque to opaque coverage applied with a fingertip. It wore nicely for nine hours before fading a bit.
All the Feels is a light-medium brown with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had medium color payoff in a single layer, which was buildable to fuller coverage with two to three layers. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and smooth, though it was on the drier, thinner side, too, which I have found translates into an application best suited for drier/more matte skin (e.g. powdered skin) or else it can stick and be difficult to blend out. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly.

ColourPop's Pressed Powder Bronzer is supposed to have a "super velvety-soft" feel that yields a "natural tanned glow." There was no mention of coverage, but the brand's promotional swatches showed full coverage. The bronzers had a soft, silky texture that was slightly powdery in the pan but tended to apply with ease, blended out nicely, and sat well on the skin. The majority of the shades seemed to have a semi-matte to satin finish, which helped them glide on and appear more natural (in finish) on the skin. The wear ranged from eight to eight and a half hours on me.

Inner Blush is a light-medium peach with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, lightly powdery, and thin, though finely-milled and smooth to the touch. The blush applied fairly evenly to bare skin, but it was more reactive to any natural oils on my skin so it was easiest and most foolproof to work with it over powdered skin. It had medium, buildable color coverage, which was as marketed, that lasted well for eight hours on me.

The formula is supposed to go on "smoothly" and have a "natural and healthy flush" that has "long wear" and "can be layered to your desired intensity." It is a lightly to moderately powdery powder blush with semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable color payoff. The consistency has a drier, thinner feel and though it feels silky to the touch, I found it the type of powder blush can be tricky to blend out evenly on the skin, depending on one's skin type or base preferences. The drier the skin/base, the better the formula would blend, but any natural oils or slip caused the blush to go on unevenly and was difficult to blend out. The wear was between seven and eight hours on me on average.

Lil Bashful is a medium-dark pink-coral with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had medium, buildable color payoff that adhered fairly well to bare skin but could have been more blendable as it was prone to sticking to wherever it was initially applied. The technique I use for this shade, along with others in the range, is to use little product and a very feathery brush and gently tap it into place, then repeat to the next area, slightly overlapped. This results in having to do less diffusion/spreading. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of wear.
