Firstly, thank you so much for your kind comments regarding Friday’s post. It’s so nice to finally share the news with you. Reading all your comments was so heart warming and further heightened my already super happy state. Thanks everyone!
So back onto today’s post, which is completely unrelated of course. I have a recent acquisition to share with you and while I realise I’m a tad late to the party it’s still fun playing show n’ tell. I know I’m meant to be saving all my pennies but I couldn’t resist Clinique’s Cheek Pop blushes on a recent shopping trip. Honestly, I probably have enough blushes to last a life time but I just couldn’t help myself when I stumbled upon the pretty gerbera/daisy embossed design (so pretty). Just out of curiosity, did anyone else think the Cheek Pops would be bigger?Currently there are 4 shades in total in the collection: Berry Pop, Plum Pop, Peach Pop and Ginger Pop. When I was ahming and arring over the the shades I tried to pick one that was missing from my collection. I already have a fair share of pinks and peach shades, so the one that stood out like a bit of a sore thumb was Ginger. On me, Ginger resembles a reddened coral but with an ever so slight tinge of tawny goodness. If I’m honest I wasn’t keen on Peach Pop and the nuances between the two pink based shades (Berry and Plum Pop – which I liked very much btw), were too comparable, so the decision to go with Ginger was pretty simple.
While the blush is lovely and luminous on the skin it can pack a serious punch in regards to colour, so don’t be fooled (see above as an example – you’ve been warned). What I love about these blushes is that they feel like a powder on ititial touch, but transform into a cream-powder finish on the skin. This results in a very luminous finish that lasts a good 6 or so hours on my skin (before starting to fade away). Ginger truly is a gorgeous shade, which in my opinion, will work across the spectrum of skin tones. My biggest (and only) gripe with little blushes is that they simply don’t come in enough shades. If you’re listening Clinique, please introduce some more shades.
Have you tried the Clinique Cheek Pops yet?
