Rosy Pop

Clinique Rosy Pop Cheek Pop Blush ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly gold sheen. In the pan, it looks similar to Pink Pop, but the undertones are different enough that one appears almost warm-toned against my complexion (the base color is cooler-toned, while the shimmer–and thus the sheen–is warmer), while Pink Pop has a noticeably cool undertone, even on me.

This shade was intensely pigmented with an incredibly soft, smooth texture that was never powdery but effortless to blend. The shimmer gives the skin a glow without emphasizing pores or the skin’s natural texture. It lasted for eight and a half hours before fading became apparent.

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.

Would it be possible to do a comparison of all 8 cheek pops so we can see them next to one another? The colors look so similar to one another it is a bit confusing! Thanks for an amazing review as always.

I second this request – could you do a cheek swatch photo comparison, like you do with the lipsticks, once you have all the colors? 🙂
I bought peach and I want to buy more once they hit the shelves, but some look so similar it’s really hard to pick without the color payoff shown side by side! That would be awesome with the Color Pop ones too! Alas I know this is asking a ton and you’re already slammed with reviews! Just an idea. 😉

Oh! Yesterday I was sold on Pink Pop, but now I’m torn! I think they’re too similar (to me) to justify both….decisions, decisions!! I hope the others arrive soon–I’m very curious to see Heather Pop!

It looks like I’ll be picking up a few of these… So far, Pink & Rosy both look promising, and I Heather & Fig caught my eye in the promo. Thankfully, these will be around for a while, LOL!

Ah, Rosy Pop! I love it when a blush has a subtle cool undertone and a warm sheen. Honestly, that’s totally perfect for people with cool skin looking to warm up their complexion. I still look forward to Heather Pop, but this is at the top of my list now for the new shades.

My no-buy is over at the end of this month and I am definitely going to have to pick up this one. It looks like it would be a perfect, natural color for my skin tone.

I feel like we may have hammered their site, LOL! It was “backordered” for almost all but you could purchase (it just wouldn’t ship until it arrived).

I didn’t think any of the original shades were particularly unique and resisted for a long time. While this color isn’t exactly unique either, this is just my kind of shade and the daisy embossing is too cute to resist!

Totally understand where you’re coming from, Cindy! Lovely shades but they’re more easily duped if you have a few blushes already!

I was hoping this one would be more of a dusty rose, but man, it’s gorgeous. Maybe Heather or Fig Pop would be closer to what I envisioned. So excited! 😀

I died when I saw this. This colour is me in a nutshell. And I love your review on it. You are always so honest with everything so it makes picking out potential additions to my makeup collection so much easier

Is this color exclusive to Clinique counters or will it be released at Sephora eventually? This looks like the perfect color for my mom. I have Ginger pop and I love the formula.

A reader asked Sephora, and Sephora said they would be getting the new shades in a few weeks. I sent a second email to Clinique but haven’t heard back!

I have a few already, I like them a lot, but I have a hard time to find the right brush to use them with…I didn’t see or miss where you said which brush you are using those blushes?? Thanks!

Hi Virginie,

I use whatever I’m testing/have on hand – there’s no go-to brush for me on this one, because I’ve never had a brush not work with it, lol! I don’t remember what I used here (I use a different blush brush for each shade when I am swatching, and I went through eight blushes when I did this one, sorry!) specifically. You can find my favorites here: http://www.temptalia.com/must-have-makeup-brushes-for-blush-foundation-contouring-highlighting-and-powder

Oh…. I was thinking more of of stiff brush, not a supple one, because I have a harder time with those….And in the same time, with the couple of stiffer ones I have, I’m always afraid it packs a lot of product at once…But they recommend a Sephora #49 one with it, maybe I should just with it…I will check anyway your link!! Thanks!

I probably wouldn’t use anything super, super feathery or soft like blue squirrel haired brushes with this! But I don’t think a denser blush brush will over-apply with most shades except Cola, you might want a light hand with if you are very fair! Hope that helps!
