The Up-Lighting Illuminating Powder is supposed to be a “sheer illuminating powder” that gives skin a “candle-lit, radiant glow” that can be used alone, as a finishing powder, or as a highlighter. It had sheer, buildable coverage that could get up to semi-opaque (three layers) with a very soft, smooth, and blendable texture that felt almost cream-like to the touch. There are three shades available, and this is the lightest of the three (they get progressively darker). On my light-medium complexion, it gives just a hint of warmth that evens out the natural redness in my cheeks and gives a low-key sheen–enough that my skin looks awake and brightened but not metallic or shiny. I think fans of subtler highlighters will like this finish, whereas if you tend to gravitate towards more frosted and metallic highlighters, you’ll find this too subtle. This shade lasted for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Top 10 Clinique Cheek Pop Blushes

Clinique Cheek Pop Blushes
Clinique Cheek Pop Blushes

Clinique Cheek Pop Blushes ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is available in twelve shades (as of July 2016) that range from beige to lavender to burgundy. Many readers will remember that it’s one of my favorite blush formulas! The consistency is dense but smooth, blendable, and sits particularly nicely on the skin as they have a satiny, luminous sheen that gives skin a glow without emphasizing pores. My personal go-tos (of the moment!) are Peach Pop, Ginger Pop, and Heather Pop. I would love to see Clinique launch more shades in the future, and I’d love to see a highlighter/bronzer formulation as well.

Clinique A Pink Honey Affair All About Shadow Palette

Clinique A Pink Honey Affair All About Shadow Palette
Clinique A Pink Honey Affair All About Shadow Palette

Clinique A Pink Honey Affair All About Shadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.41 oz.) contains eight shades of warm, pinky neutrals. Three shades are from other palettes (duo/quad/palette, actually), and then five are from the singles range. I half-hoped that this was going to be a cooler-toned neutral palette, but it ended up quite warm-toned overall. The All About Shadow formula is supposed to be long-wearing, crease-resistant, fade-resistant, and have “creamy colour [that] glides on in one smooth stroke.” The formula is more what you might associate with Clinique: subdued, sheerer, better for those who like exactly that type of application and look, but if you want intense coverage, you’ll want to look elsewhere. The colors have some overlap within the palette, which makes it easy to use and blend everything together, but it could be more contrasting and versatile.

Jammin #1 is a light, subtly pink-tinted beige with warm undertones and a pearl shimmer. It had semi-opaque coverage with a firmer press, which made it seem thinner in consistency and a little dusty on the lid. I could see it working for those who prefer a sheerer wash or want something less opaque for highlighting the brow bone. The color lasted for seven hours on me before fading. MAC Pretty (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Blush Stilettos (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever S522 Pinky Nude (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Urban Decay Skimp (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). theBalm #14 (P, $6.50) is darker (90% similar). MAC Sahara Dust (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Smokeluxe #1 (P) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Ballet Flats is a light-medium peach with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nice color payoff with a soft, blendable texture that was a little soft and looser to work with, but I didn’t notice it sheer out much on the skin. The color started to fading after seven hours. NYX Girl Talk (P, $6.00) is cooler (95% similar). Stila Rose Quartz (P)(95% similar).

Nude Rose is a light, rosy beige with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. This one had a really firm texture–very packed in–and was harder to get coverage out of (semi-sheer was the best I could do). It started to fade after six and a half hours.

Clinique Cream Pop Lid Pop
Clinique Cream Pop Lid Pop

Clinique Cream Pop Lid Pop ($17.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a light, golden beige with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a firmer, drier texture that was harder to get out of the pan. It sheered out somewhat on the skin and couldn’t be built-up more than 85% opacity on bare skin (you have to use a good primer/base). It lasted for six hours before fading.

Clinique Aqua Pop Lid Pop ($17.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright pop of bluish-teal with a pearly sheen.

Clinique Surf Pop Lid Pop ($17.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark blue with strong, cool undertones and a sparkly, satin-like finish–not really frosted. It was dry, dusty, and semi-sheer at best, but it tended to apply unevenly and blend in a way that resulted in patchy coverage. It lasted for five and a half hours before fading.

Clinique Willow Pop Lid Pop ($17.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark, olive brown with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Clinique Lid Pop ($17.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, powder eyeshadow formula that is described as “silky” and “long-wearing” with “richly pigmented shades build, blend easily to desired level of intensity.” They have good color payoff but tend to sheer out on the lid, and there is a faded quality after application, almost like when you apply an eyeshadow damp and it dries down less intense. The texture varies from soft and powdery to dusty to smooth. If you like semi-sheer to semi-opaque wash of colors and take the time to really blend and buff each shade, you can get a really luminous finish out of them, but using them more heavily results in a drier texture that was visible on my lid. I get between six and seven hours of wear with this formula, and in my experience, it was a formula that was faster to fade (but I didn’t have creasing issues) than the average eyeshadow for me. They have a very “lived in” look to me applied; like the eyeshadows melt and fade against the lid, but they never look like they do in the pan on the lid without a white or colored base.

Clinique Petal Pop Lid Pop ($17.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a light-medium, yellowed pink with warm, golden shimmer. It had semi-opaque coverage, which I couldn’t get any more opaque than that as it didn’t stick well to bare skin due to the drier consistency (just didn’t seem to bind well to me).

Clinique Grape Pop Lid Pop ($17.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark purple with subtle, warm undertones and a frosted sheen.
