Clinique Berry Pop (03) Cheek Pop Blush Review, Photos, Swatches

Clinique Berry Pop (03) Cheek Pop Blush
Clinique Berry Pop (03) Cheek Pop Blush

Clinique Berry Pop (03) Cheek Pop Blush ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark fuchsia pink with blue undertones and a satiny sheen. NARS Coeur Battant (LE, $29.00) is brighter, cooler-toned. Tom Ford Beauty Narcissist (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery. NARS Desire (P, $29.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler-toned, matte. MAC Florida (LE, $21.00) is more magenta, cooler-toned, cream product. Burberry Hydrangea Pink (P, $42.00) is redder, darker. See comparison swatches.

Berry Pop makes us three for three so far–and there’s one more shade to review!–and it’s been such a pleasant experience testing a truly impressive formula. It’s intensely pigmented with buildable and blendable color; there’s no doubt that this is going to be a more intense blush, so it’ll work well across all skin tones, but fairer skin tones may want to use a light hand and more feathery brush (or a stippling brush). The texture is soft and smooth, feels more like a cream than a powder (but definitely a powder), so the color can easily be sheered out for a softer, flushed look or applied more dramatically for true-to-pan color. It has a soft, satiny finish that’s naturally luminous but not overly shimmery or frosted. Berry Pop wore nicely for eight hours before starting to fade along the edges.

I’ve spotted them online at Nordstrom as well as Sephora.

Christine, I wasn’t able to find the ingredient list for this formula anywhere online. Would you be able to spot it somewhere on the packaging? I would like to make sure there is nothing I am allergic to before I order online. Thanks!

I was so crazy excited for the Hourglass Ambient blushers and they look nice too, but these….THESE!!! It’s a rare day that I’m particularly impressed by anything Clinique puts out, but these look like something special. Thanks for reviewing, Christine!

This blush is just so pretty, it makes me feel happy!
I loooove the color, it’s like Givenchy’s Fuchsia Irresistible for cheeks.
Will definitely buy this along with the other colors :3

Couldn’t wait for your reviews to get Plum Pop!!!! As soon as I got Sephora’s email about Hourglass Ethereal Glow being stocked, I got both! If I didn’t have to work I’d be waiting by the door for the little Sephora box ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh my! This is the one I was waiting for and how pretty it is. It looks a lot like MAC Her Blooming Cheek (which I’ve had for years and haven’t even made a dent in) so now I’m sort of wondering if I really need this or if I should just be using Her Blooming Cheek more often.

I think this is a better quality product, but Her Blooming Cheek is quite pigmented so most of the improvement is in the texture. At the very least, maybe use HBC more often and if you REALLY love it, then acquire this one!

I was quite surprised that the formula was so spot on with these. Clinique isn’t usually on my radar at all. It’s a relief that they only have four shades, because with these on my wishlist as well as the new Hourglass blushes I’m sort of in blush overload now haha

like i said before … these blush and the whole makeup is so well balanced ๐Ÿ˜€
101% getting these Christine ๐Ÿ™‚ these am sure will show nicely on my skin ๐Ÿ˜€
cant thank you enough for the awesome pictures and FOTD’s ๐Ÿ™‚
and honest no non sense reviews … i hope you understand what i mean … ๐Ÿ™‚

one may think you get samples but we have seen you buying whole collection for us and this is what makes you stand out amongst sea of beauty bloggers

beautiful on you and they are made for you ๐Ÿ™‚
already added in cart just waiting for right time ๐Ÿ˜€

What did you use to apply this? It looks like a very pigmented product but you managed to sheer it out nicely. I have issues with being too heavy handed with blushes. Also, I tried to find your post about your latest skin stuff but couldn’t find it. What did you say your PCP prescribed you that has helped? Thanks!

Wow! All of these colors have been so full-on! Are there any more subtle colors in the collection? I don’t think I’d be able to wear any of the 3 you’ve reviewed without using the lightest of hands.

I’ve been hanging out for your review of the ‘pink’ one! ๐Ÿ˜€ it looks wonderful!

I’ve never been much of a blush girl (funny since I have like zero pigment to my skin!), but when there are blushes like these and Chanel’s cream ones…they’re converting me!

I usually gravitate toward pinks, but I’m wondering if I should break the mould and use the chance to go peachy with these. My Chanel blush is Affinite, so I definitely have bright pink covered! Anyone have thoughts on a transparently pale, cool toned girl wearing peach blush?

It’s very pigmented, but sheered out it still maintains the integrity of the shade. I find with alot of products, they tend to “lose” something, almost changing the color. Because of this, I may have to try this at a counter! I also appreciate how it melds with the natural undertone of the skin, so this may workfor me!

Hi Christine, this looks awesome! You look great as always, but I think I like ginger pop the best on you so far!

One question, it looks a little bit like Nars Mata Hari, how do you think they would compare?

I got plum pop yesterday and I really do love it. I’m soooo surprised that it’s such a good product from Clinique. The best part is the really really reasonable price….compared to some of my other favorites. I love the new chanel creams…..the hourglass shades look beautiful. How many blushes are too many?

Just picked Berry Pop up. My office is directly above a Clinique counter, so I popped in when I went to get lunch. These are so cute in person. I kind of want Ginger Pop too. I have so many blushes and I so did not need another blush, but…I have no willpower. Your reviews sold me.

Hi Christine,
Thanks for the review.
I’m wondering… How does the Berry pop’s color compare to Chanel cream blush in Affinitรฉ and the Tom Ford’s powder blush in Flush ?

Thanks for the reply <3
Sounds Berry pop is shimmery and cool toned compared to Affinitรฉ.
I haven't seen Flush in real yet, i'm waiting a friend to bring one for me when she'll come back from her trip to the US, with some TF brushes and eye shadows ๐Ÿ™‚ !!!!!!

The differences would be interesting… An excuse to get one ๐Ÿ˜›
