Clinique Cheek Pop (review) are so incredible, I can recommend every single shade without hesitation. Great texture, pigmentation, and not too pricey! (Pictured: Plum Pop)
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush (review) are soft, lightly luminous blushes that are great for everyday wear. They’ve gone in and out of stock during the sale, so you might have to look in-store for them if they’re on your list. (Pictured: Ethereal Glow)
Make Up For Ever HD Blush (review) are forgiving, easy-to-use cream blushes that wear well, come in a variety of shades, and have a great texture. (Pictured: #215)
Guerlain Meteorites Pearls (review) is a fantastic way to add subtle glow and softening to the face after applying your favorite foundation, and they’re an indulgence to be sure! (Pictured: Clair)
Givenchy Le Prisme Blush (review) is incredibly finely-milled, velvety, and smooth in texture, so the blush goes on evenly and looks natural on the skin. (Pictured: It-Girl Purple)
Reader Dilyana wanted to see more top picks for corals… so here’s my current top ten list of coral lipsticks, lipglosses, and blushes! (See them in the Swatch Gallery here.) What are your favorites right now?
With Valentine’s Day just a couple of weeks away, it seemed only appropriate to make a list of pretty in pink shades. Whether you like pink on your lips, tips, cheeks, or eyes, I hope that you’ll find at least one shade to drool over.
WithCheek Pop Blush, Clinique hit a home run. Every single shade has been high quality, richly pigmented, and effortlessly blendable. They’re all fantastic, and I can recommend them each equally–it’s a matter of your preference on color, but you can’t go wrong formula-wise. It’s not often that a brand puts out a new formula that’s as impressive as this offering but to be consistent across the shades? so infrequent.
Plum Pop has an incredibly soft but smooth, even color application, and it delivers color as intense or as sheer as your heart desires. Deeper skin tones won’t feel like they’re spending ten minutes to layer on the product while fairer complexions can easily use a lighter touch/brush and blend and sheer away the product with ease. The finish is luminous, glowy, but very natural; it looks like a cream blush when applied–never powdery–and applies like one, as the way it blends and smooths over the skin is incredible. Plum Pop lasted well for eight hours on my skin before starting to fade away along the edges.
Sometimes products are discontinued or limited edition, which means that a product may no longer be available at one or more retailers so you may need to shop around for those hard-to-find shades! We try to update products as they become discontinued, and if you discover a product has been discontinued, please help us help others by letting us know.
