Hey guys. I feel like it's been awhile since I've posted a makeup review and today I'm here to remedy that. I did a ColourPop haul a couple of months ago and since then, this blush has been on my daily rotation.

Between the Sheets is described as a mid-tone beige pink with a matte finish. This is actually a light/medium brownish peachy pink with warm undertones and a true matte finish (no sheen, no shimmers, no glitters). The color is very muted so it doesn't really register as a true pink, peach nor brown.

Between the Sheets is very pigmented, with opaque and buildable coverage. It applied smoothly and evenly. Because of the creamy formula, this is also easy to blend out and soften. The shade looks very flattering ans natural on me.

ColourPop recommends using your fingetips for "the highest amount of coverage." You can also use a "flat synthetic brush for more coverage, or a duo fiber for a sheer, airbrushed effect." I usually use my Real Techniques Stippling Brush when applying this as it gives me more control on where I want to apply as well as how opaque I want the color to be.

I like how this feels very lightweight on the skin. The formula is a cream-powder hybrid that gives you the benefits of both. Creams are easier to apply  as it has more give so you can work around it as much as you want. Powders on the other hand lack the shine of a cream and are easily buildable.

This is a cream blush but not similar to the average cream blushes in a sense that it has the workability and give of a cream minus the shine and slip. I feel that this leans more of a mousse product. Once you apply it on the cheeks, it acts more of a powder than a cream.

The color tends to stain so this blush definitely stay on. It wore well and long and still looked good as new after eight hours.  It stayed matte throughout the day. Finally, goodbye shiny cheeks. :)
