I’m a sucker for nothing blushes. You know, those blushes that look like nothing in the pan but apply so gorgeously on the skin giving you a slight glow. These types of blushers provide lift or dimension to your cheeks without overtly looking like blush.
I heard a lot of hype around the Clinique Cheek Pop blushers ($29 CAD) so thought I’d test them out, starting with of course the nude shade: Nude Pop. This blusher has a wonderful sheen to it on the skin and swatches and applies lighter on the cheeks than it appears in the pan. Depending on your skin can lean a bit peachy pink (despite looking like a rosy nude shade).
The packaging is to die for – I don’t know how they were able to get the flower imprint so deep into the product (so that it doesn’t wipe away like an overspray/ overlay) and so intricate. The case is a thick transparent plastic that so perfectly houses each flower blush. I love the way this looks, the packaging gets a A+++ from me!
The formula is nice, thin, soft and blendable. It’s really a beautiful blusher not the skin by adding a hint of sheen to pick up the cheeks and leaving behind a beautiful peachy nude glow on my skin. This is beauty swatched approved
