Review + Swatches: Pop Beauty Butterfly Bronze Blush Duo Compact in Sunblossom


Hey beauties! I'm so excited to share with you all my first Pop Beauty purchase (and it won't be my last)! If you've been a long time follower of my blog, then you know I'm a huge sucker for pretty packaging. So, I just had to get my hands on the Pop Beauty Butterfly Bronze Blush Duo Compact in Sunblossom. Whew! That was a mouthful. =D




Pros:
  • silky texture
  • applies smoothly
  • blends easily
  • not too sheer or too pigmented
  • lasts at least 14 hours
  • contains alot of product
  • slim compact

Cons:
  • compact may be too big for travel (I personally don't mind the size and I wouldn't want to travel with this anyways because it's too gorgeous and I'm afraid I may lose it or break it.)

Left: Pop Beauty Butterfly Compact
Right: MAC Flower Fantasy Compact

This face powder is made up of half bronzer and half blush that work together to warm up and brighten the skin. The compact has a full size mirror and is huge compared to the standard compact, such as MAC's Flower Fantasy Face Powder (review + swatches). I doubt you will be able to hit pan on it because it contains a hefty amount of product and the embossed butterfly design is simply too gorgeous and cute to use.   


The bronzer trio is not too dark or too light for my NC30/35 skin tone. When I swirl my brush over the 3 shades and apply it on my cheeks, it translates into a peachy-honey tan color that warms up my skin and acts as a blush for me as well. The blush trio gives me a rosy pink tint and brightens up my complexion. Both the bronzer and blush shades leave a glowy sheen to the skin and they both have a beautiful satin finish that's neither frosty nor matte, which is perfect for either daytime or nighttime use. 


The texture feels silky smooth and the pigmentation is not too sheer or too pigmented. It just applies the perfect amount of product when I use my Studio Gear #13 brush (full review) or my Japonesque blush brush (mini review) and it blends easily. Also, both shades last at least 14 hours on my cheeks without fading when worn over liquid foundation + setting powder.  


(Heavy Swatch)

Bottom Line:
 
The price point is reasonable, you get a hefty amount of product and the quality is amazing. You need to run out the door and grab this compact ASAP, especially if you want your cheeks to look fresh and glowy, while still looking natural. I can't believe I've never tried their products until now!

Note: The Pop Beauty Butterfly Bronze Blush Duo Compact in Sunblossom is available at beauty.com, Nordstrom and Ulta for $26. The diameter of the compact measures 4.5 inches and each side of the compact contains 12.48g of product.
