Clinique Pink Pop Cheek Pop Blush
Clinique Pink Pop Cheek Pop Blush

Clinique Pink Pop Cheek Pop Blush ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, medium rosy pink with very subtle cool, blue undertones and a luminous sheen. It’s almost neutral, but it leans a little cool-toned against my warmer skin tone. Colour Pop Birthday Suit (P, $8.00) is a cream product. NARS Fervor (Left) (P) is lighter, warmer. Physicians Formula Rose (P, $12.99) is cooler-toned. MAC I’m a Lover (P, $23.50) is lighter. Too Faced Sweet Pink (LE) is brighter. YSL Singuliere (1) (P, $47.00) is lighter. Dior My Lady (002) (LE, $60.00) is lighter. Dior Rose (001) (LE, $56.00) is lighter. Tarte Flush (P, $26.00) is similar. Tarte Dollface (P, $26.00) is cooler-toned. Chanel Inspiration (64) (P, $38.00) is lighter, warmer. NYX English Rose (P, $15.00) is more shimmery. MAC Stay Pretty (P, $23.50) is more matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Fingers, toes, and paws crossed that the new Cheek Pops start hitting other retailers soon as all six of the new shades are now temporarily out of stock on Clinique. The texture of this shade was soft, smooth, and incredibly blendable on the skin. It had excellent color payoff that can be sheered out or built-up for true-to-pan color. I’m so pleased to be able to report that thus far the new shades are measuring up to the original four that were released in formula. I think a lot of the magic in the formula is the finish: a satiny, luminous sheen that gives skin a natural radiance while making skin appear smoother, as it never emphasizes pores. On me, Pink Pop lasted for nine hours on me before fading.

Clinique Pansy Pop Cheek Pop Blush
Clinique Pansy Pop Cheek Pop Blush

Clinique Pansy Pop Cheek Pop Blush ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brightened, light-medium lavender with a hint of pink and a satiny sheen. Colour Pop Thumper (P, $8.00) is brighter, less shimmery. Colour Pop Mochi (P, $8.00) is pinker. Colour Pop Prenup (P, $8.00) is warmer. NARS Roman Holiday (LE, $29.00) is pinker, brighter. MAC I’m a Lover (P, $23.50) is lighter, pinker. Makeup Geek Secret Admirer (P, $9.99) is lighter. NARS Sex Fantasy (LE, $29.00) is lighter. Milani Delizioso Pink (10) (P, $7.99) is brighter. NARS Gaiety (P, $29.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Unconventional (LE, $21.00) is lighter. MAC Peony Petal (P, $21.00) is darker, brighter. MAC Full of Joy (P, $21.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Oh, I can’t tell you what joy I felt when I saw Clinique released six new shades in the Cheek Pop formula (one of my all-time favorite blush products!). I ordered all of them, but three of them are on back-order, so I don’t know when I’ll have those, but I do have the other three to share! Pansy Pop is up first (seriously, a lavender? of course that’s first!). The texture was soft, smooth and very blendable on the skin, while the finish is softly luminous without being too shimmery or dewy, so it didn’t emphasize pores and gave skin a smoother appearance. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage, but it was one of the lesser pigmented Cheek Pops I’ve come across. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading.
