Clinique Blush Cheek Pop in Pink Pop (12) And Lip Colour + Primer in Punch Pop (10) Review & Swatches
Friday, September 11, 2015
It's Friday! So let's get POPPIN! I've finally tried Clinique's Cheek/Blush Pop (in Pink Pop 12) and Lip Colour + Primer (in Punch Pop 10). The cheek pops are very cute! I love the raised dimensional floral design! You won't want to use it (they're that pretty)! Now let me warn you...they are small! There's more packaging than flower (I mean blush). I will play devil's advocate and say you don't need much blush (so maybe that is why they're so tiny). The blush color I chose was just ok to me. It seemed to lack something, like some ZEST or ZING! To me, it's a purplish pink. Again, there's nothing wrong with it, but there's nothing amazing about it either. So yeah...NO RUSH to go out and buy one (or another one)! But it does create a FRESH YOUTHFUL look! Maybe another shade would work better for me. Hmmm, what do you think? Pictures below. Now let me tell you about the SUPERSTAR of this duo! It's the Lip Colour + Primer, that was introduced THIS YEAR! This gets a SUPERSWEET from me. You get an A++++ Clinique for this lipstick! Awesome lip colour! It's richly pigmented. It has a fabulous shine to it. It applies evenly to the lips. It FEELS GREAT to the lips! I definitely want to get some more of these lippies. Super love the formula. I love them like I do Too Faced's La Creme Lipsticks. Did I say they were awesome? Oh yes, they are! I would suggest going to the store to swatch them (all of these really), because this color was a little richer than what I thought. It's a little different than anything I own, but I can work with it. Ok! Those are my thoughts. Have you tried any makeup from Clinique? I've never really purchased their makeup before. When I was younger, I would get my mother's friends samples >.< but I never went out and bought any on my own. Ah yes! My makeup mooching days! LOL Back then Clinique seemed more like a MATURE ladies brand. So it's nice to see them catering to a younger age bracket. Packaging and all! Today is also 9/11. I remember that day so clearly (all the death, shock and destruction) and from that moment on, life was never the same. I want to take time to pay respect to the families and anyone that went through that dark day in our history. My heart goes out to you. You're in my prayers. You guys have a great weekend!
