A Sorbet Delight For Summer: New Shades of My Favourite Clinique Cheek Pop Blush

When the original Cheek Pops launched from Clinique last Spring, the beauty would collectively gasped and fawned over the beautiful floral pans that lay before them. (Read my original feature here.) A year on and they’re still the prettiest blushers I’ve ever come across, remaining a firm favourite that I reached for as soon as the weather started to turn a little warmer; the tones within the collection are perfectly designed for spring and summer, offering up shades that add a just touch of flush. This summer Clinique are expanding their colour portfolio further by releasing a further six shades, all of which are equally as beautiful and delicate as the originals. These two Cheek Pops offer a preview of the kind of colours you can expect, the sorbet-inspired peach and pink pans providing a delicate touch that helps to subtly brighten skin.

The texture of these delightful products is silky smooth, providing a creamy-powder finish that’s
extremely easy to apply and blend into the cheekbones; these blushers
don’t flake or provide a dusting that’s hard to work with, just a hit of
colour that works perfectly with your skin. I do love that these look
beautiful, yet actually provide what I really want: a natural finish and
an easy to apply formula. They work best when applied with a flat
stippling brush, buffed into the skin gently to build up colour. You
only need a little amount, thanks to the high level of pigment, which
means you can also savour the floral pan design for as long as possible –
it doesn’t break down at the first sign of a brush, because it’s so
compactly pressed with product.

I’ve still got two of the original colours in my collection looking practically as good as new, after they’ve been put to work many a time over the last year; these two offer a more delicate alternative that helps the light hit skin in just the right place. Although these won’t provide a striking finish, sometimes all you need is a little flush of colour. They’re pretty, pigmented and easy to work with – plus at £16.50 each, they won’t break the bank either. A wise investment for summer if you’re after something a little different to see you through until autumn.

Are you a fan of the Clinique Cheek Pops? Will you be rushing into store to check out the new shades?

The new shades of Clinique’s Cheek Pops are available from June, priced £16.50. The two shades featured are Pink Pop & Melon Pop. Six other shades are also available on counter now.

    I saw these displayed at the Clinique counter the other day. The display was beautiful and made me think of summer time. I had already done enough damage with purchases by the time I saw there but I totally had my eye on them.

    These look beautiful! I have Ginger Pop, but don't seem to be drawn to the others. I love the look of these two lighter shades though. I also like that you have your Snapchat in your sidebar! XxTania | whentaniatalks.blogspot.co.uk
