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.

Clinique Heather Pop is my HG blush; both color and formula. I am quite fair, MAC NW10 in winter and NW13 in summer. I find this is the perfect every day blush. It goes with whatever eye look I'm wearing and most lipstick shades. Its the type of blush that I frequently take for granted. The formula is very easy to work with. Its buildable and hard to overdo. It has a subtle sheen, but no shine or glitter. I can easily wear it to my very conservative job and just as easily wear it out for a special occasion. On my normal to dry skin it easily wears for 12 hours without fading. Like I said...I frequently take it for granted.

This was my first ever blush and it's ruined me for all others. I love it but my only gripe is that the packaging is not secure as the clasp isn't strong enough. Dropped it 3 weeks into its use and the actual flower part 'popped' out (see what i did there?) from the glass/plastic case. I still used it after that but i wouldn't repurchase it... Pretty but not very durable imo.

This blush is so pretty with its little flower pattern I hate to make a dent in it when I use it! I did not expect to like this blush as much as I do. I thought for sure it would wind up greasy and melt off my face, so I was happily surprised at how long-wearing it is. I love the color of Peach Pop, but, sadly, it didn't show up the way I wanted on my NC35 skin. I wasn't attracted to Ginger Pop on the display case, but I'm super glad I tried it on my skin, because the color is gorgeous. It gives me an incredibly "natural" looking reddish-bronze flush that adds an energetic look to my face; (which I really, really need...) It makes my green eyes POP like crazy, esp. with Black Honey eyeliner. Ginger Pop is a creamy/powdery blush that reminds me of Maybelline Bouncy blush, but it doesn't get "dirty" or change texture like the Bouncy blush. I find application looks best when I use my fingers rather than any brush I've tried. The product doesn't transfer well with brushes or a sponge. It does blend nicely and it melts into my skin in a way that looks bright but not glittery. A good new blush from Clinique is a big event for me. I've been using Clinique for many more years than I'll admit to, and I've gotta say, I'd gotten pretty bored with Totally Tawny and Chestnut. Ginger Pop is a fun and flattering addition.

I was so looking forward to getting this blush. I'd swatched it and read reviews and all indications were that this would be perfect for me. So when my local Sephora finally got more in stock (they'd been sold out for quite some time), I grabbed Plum Pop. When I went to use it, I was really disappointed because I had a very hard time getting any colour at all to show up on my relatively fair skin. I can't help but wonder if perhaps this "new batch" isn't as good as the original. After a few uses, I did find this applied better and if I use it over a liquid product (rather than over a powder), it is more visible. So I'm hoping this will continue to improve once I get the top layer sort of evenly worn/roughed up. The colour is lovely and very natural but application could be better.
