Clinique Cheek Pop PearlClinique Cheek Pop Pearl is the successor to the brand’s Cheek Pop formula. There are six shades, which all hover around more light to mid-depth and warmer hues. I was really disappointed that this wasn’t used as an opportunity to diversify the shade range, and at the very least, a shade like Cola Pop didn’t return.
From initial use, they seem very similar to the original Cheek Pops, though they seemed to have less luminosity and slightly more obvious pearl, though fine and definitely not overtly shimmery on. They seemed a little more yielding and picked up more readily with a blush, were truer to builder coverage, but didn’t “melt” quite as beautifully as the original (we are talking degrees of beautiful, not a massive difference).
