Review: Clinique Cheek Pop in Peach Pop

Clinique Cheek Pop

I decided to try out one of the four Cheek Pop blushes from Clinique after hearing nothing but great things about them. I’ve never been much of a fan of Clinique products because the brand seems to be targeted to those with more mature skin. However, beauty gurus continue to rave about these blushes so I knew that I had to try at least one of the shades.

Clinique Cheek Pops are described as “effortless, natural cheek colors. Discover pure, natural cheek color that looks virtually powderless. This silky smooth, stay-true formula comes in a shade for every season for an effortless, natural blush of just-pinched pop. ”

These blushes come in a clear, compact container and are molded into a very cute flower design. I almost didn’t want to swatch this because I didn’t want to ruin it! When I finally did decide to swatch it, it felt very silky and creamy. I was a bit worried that this would come across as a cream blush which would be a big no no for my oily skin. But when blended out, this didn’t show up shiny like most cream blushes do. It seemed to be more of a powder, but as Clinique described, this looked powderless on the skin. I have never tried anything like this before! This blush felt almost like velvet and reminded me more of a luxury product. I am so excited that I decided to buy this because I am in love!

I got this blush in the shade Peach Pop (of course, I love me some orange-peachy pink blushes) and I would describe it as a pink-coral. Most shades that are labeled “peach” usually lean more orange but this is a true peach color. This was extremely easy to blend and is very buildable. I think a sheer wash of this shade would look absolutely perfect for the summer time. It gives off such a beautiful sheen which leaves a luminous, natural finish to the skin. The wear-time of this is amazing as well! This lasted on me for about 10 hours with minimal fading. This also did not emphasize any pores, fine lines, or dry patches. I definitely recommend trying out these Cheek Pops!
