What the brand says: This peachy cheek duo will send you flying and leave you with a golden, nectar glow!

This soft-feeling blush and highlighter blends evenly and can be layered to your desired intensity.
MY TAKE ON COLOURPOP THE KNOCKOUT PRESSED POWDER FACE DUO
Packaging: The duo comes in the usual lightweight colourpop packaging with flip open lid. The blush and highlighter is placed next to each other and the packaging feels really sturdy and classic.
Texture: The blush and highlighter isn’t very powdery and brittle but is very fine and nicely compacted to prevent fallout or mess. The blush and highlighter blends beautifully into the skin and can be layered without feeling cakey or patchy.
Shade: The duo contains 1 blush and 1 highlighter. The blush is called ‘excuse my french’ which is a soft matte peachy blush and looks absolutely gorgeous and natural on the cheeks. Highlighter is called ‘Excuse my French’ which is a beautiful pearly peach-golden shade and looks absolutely stunning on the cheekbones!
How I use and staying power: To use, swirl your blush brush in the pan and apply on your cheeks and cheek bones. I feel the blush brush works better than a fan brush for highlighter as the product is tightly packed/compacted and the fan brush won’t pick up the desired amount of product! (you can still use a fan brush for a very light glow) Go light handed for a very soft color/glow and slowly layer it for a pop of color.
The blush and highlighter go very light with one swipe and as you build it up, it gets darker so you could use this palette on an everyday basis and also when you want a dark makeup look! I absolutely love the highlighter also because the shade is very unique and something I have never used earlier. It gives a nice golden flush to your cheeks with peachy undertones that makes it look natural and dramatic at the same time. The highlighter and blush when used together photographs well and gives you a beautiful natural glowing look which I totally love about this product! Since the highlighter is a bit on the golden side, it also works great as an eye shadow. It stays intact all day long without fading. I love everything abut this duo- the shade, packaging, finish and also the fact that it gives a natural glow and photographs well! I give this a thumbs up.
