Clinique Black Honey Pop Cheek Pop

Clinique Black Honey Pop Cheek Pop Blush

Clinique Black Honey Pop Cheek Pop Blush ($23.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark pinky plum with warm undertones and a luminous finish. MAC Sweet Samba (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Sand Pink (P, $26.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #310 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). theBalm Houndstooth (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). NYX Apricot (P, $15.00) is warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Your Love is King (P, $26.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Ironic (LE, $28.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar).

The formula is described as “vibrant yet natural-looking cheek colour that looks virtually powderless.” The texture was smooth, soft, and dense, so it was never powdery in the pan or on the skin. The blush had good color payoff that was easily sheered out (or you could apply less, as the denser texture makes that easy to control). It’s the kind of texture that almost blends itself as soon as you start applying and working it onto the skin. The finish became more luminous as I blended the powder onto the skin, but it was never shiny or overly shimmery, so it always looked smooth on my skin and did not emphasize pores or my skin’s texture. It wore well for nine and a half hours on me before I noticed a bit of fading around the edges.
