The latest cheek offering by Clinique, these Pop Blushes define Spring like no other. I'm not swatching them for a reason. First, there are tonnes of betters swatches out there, from the ones who actually specialise in that sort of a thing. Second, the formula is one of those subtle ones which looks great on the cheeks but rubbish on the back of the hand, yes that.
I have two shades with me and both of them are equally gorgeous. I have the shades 'plump pop' and 'berry pop'. One is more blue toned and one is warm toned, with hints of peach shot through it. If you find it difficult to wear corals due to a pale yellow complexion, try this shade and it will make you change your mind.
The container is a clear one which gives it a clean, crisp look for the warmer months. Makes it look modern and more geared towards a younger population. The finish of these is satin like, with a hint of iridescent sheen shot through it. Regarding application, it spreads on skin like a hybrid between a powder and cream blusher.
I still haven't figured out it's consistency exactly! Having said that, the buttery texture makes it super easy to slap on with fingers or absolutely any makeup brush from your collection. I prefer to use a fan brush with this surprisingly. Just an application intuition and it works wonders. The pigment of these blushes is almost translucent where you can still see skin from within. Looks more like a natural flush and I'm not complaining.
With the shades of these being so fresh and vibrant, it only makes sense to apply these more towards the apple of the cheeks rather than do a sculpted look. For £16 a pop, these are must-haves for Spring/Summer, especially if your Winter blushes are starting to appear a little full-on, cakey and matte on top of that sheer BB base. Not a good look eh?
