There are a few blushes that are in their own league, ones I’d repurchase without a second thought. This is a new addition to that!
When this was released, I remember feeling excited with the promos, I knew I had to try these out. The reviews started trickling in and it was all I hoped for, I tried it myself and it’s a happy marriage.
Clinique Cheek Pop Blush in Ginger Pop brings out the makeup romantic in me but aside from that it is a really great blush worth trying. The colour is a muted coral, it looks very earthy and I think that makes it more understated.
The blush is quite pigmented, I’d say more of a medium pigmentation, but it’s very easy to build up or sheer out depending on your liking. The consistency also seems like a hybrid between a cream and powder (perhaps more on the powder side). While applying it blends very easily and feels like a cream to matte formula, but it looks very silky.
The finish it gives is more satin rather than a powdery matte one.The lasting power is very impressive! I’d say it stays strong for 8 hours on me without fading, beyond that it’s very much still there but does start to fade.
What I like best is the price! Granted, when it comes to drugstore blushes it would seem quite steep, but compared to other high-end blushes, which are equally good, this is a steal at $21 for 3.5g of product! Also, you can’t ignore the pattern of daisies, it’s very uplifting to look at.
In India, you can get this at Clinique counters or at Sephora for Rs. 1,200.
