Pink Honey Pop

Clinique Pink Honey Pop Cheek Pop Blush ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a satin sheen. The texture was very smooth and dense in the pan, while on the skin, it was incredibly blendable and almost creamy in the way it sat and diffused on the skin.

It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage that applied easily, as it blended out nicely along the edges. The finish was more satiny than truly luminous–it seemed to have less sheen than most of the Cheek Pops–but looked good on the skin as it did not emphasize pores or my skin’s texture. This shade wore well for nine hours on me before fading slightly.

Formula Overview

$21.00/0.12 oz. - $175.00 Per Ounce

The formula is described as “vibrant yet natural-looking cheek colour that looks virtually powderless.” The texture was smooth, soft, and dense, so it was never powdery in the pan or on the skin. The blush had good color payoff that was easily sheered out (or you could apply less, as the denser texture makes that easy to control).

It’s the kind of texture that almost blends itself as soon as you start applying and working it onto the skin. The finish became more luminous as I blended the powder onto the skin, but it was never shiny or overly shimmery, so it always looked smooth on my skin and did not emphasize pores or my skin’s texture. Most shades lasted between eight and nine hours on me.

I love Clinique cheek pops but this color looks like 3 colors in that line lol. Maybe the other colors will actually be new and different from what they have!

I’m definitely checking this one out — a warm pinker shade is rare. I have fig pop and it’s ok, but not quite right, a little too dark or something; and peach pop swatched too orange. So this could work.

This is a great shade that is not too pinky, more of a coral colour from what I can tell in the photos. It looks beautiful on you Christine and I think would suit a lot of complexions too.

On the Clinique site it shows one of the new colors as Pink Pop!? Oh shoot! I don’t like the other ones I purchased but I think I have to have this one – ridiculous but true.

woooh!! you reviewed it!! finally the review I’ve been waiting for!! I like this better than the Rosy Pop which I ended up giving to my sister. Will definitely get this (well after these holiday craze tho or will wait for the sale, so I can hoard the other shades)
Thanks as always Christine!!

The finish looks beautiful on this one. Alas, I have GA Daybreak (I wanted to type NARS.. confused.. I think they have a daybreak too… nope daydream!) and MUG spellbound.

This is so pretty! I’m not really into true pink blushes but this one is just calling to me. I can’t wait to see the Black Honey one too.

Where can I purchase the new Clinique Pink Honey Cheek Pop? I have checked Nordstrom’s, Sephora’s and Clinique’s websites and don’t find it as yet. Any idea when it will be available?

gosh, this one looks way better than the picture on the website. i guess i should have ordered this one instead of black honey haha

This looks quite pretty, and I really like the Cheek Pops, but the colour feels more *spring* to me so it’s not getting me too excited lol. Plus I have sooooo many pinky-coral blushes already. I look forward to the Black Honey review, though!
