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!

That lippie is such a bold shade but you wear it so well Kim! :)

I used to have clinique makeup, I've gradually phased it out, but I still use the clinique concealer! :) I like that I can walk up to a cliique counter and describe the product I'm after (as I never remember the names!) and they can help me out :)


I used to use a freebie Clinique blush, until I won your gievaway and got the awesome tarte ones! :)

This colour is perfection...love that a lot!! It is a sad day, all those lives lost. Though, I hope that they were not lost in vain, that we all strive to be kinder and always seek to fight for others when things like this happen, because sadly when there is good, there is always evil and we can never let evil win. Always remember these precious souls lost!! xx

Jackie Harrison said...

I love their blush and the packaging is so cute the shade of lipstick and the cheek color looks very pretty on you doll. Have a great weekend.

Kim, you've been having great luck with lipsticks lately! This is another winner. No wonder it gets a Supersweet. I've always liked Clinique makeup and skincare. I don't know why it's not as hip as the other brands coz their products rock!

Anyhoo, Happy Friday!

I love the Clinique lipstick!

That's good that the blush size is small. Maybe their message is not to put too much blush. Cliniquie is always a reliable brand.

Clinique is always reliable and have wonderful products.

Shirley Tay said...

Hey Kim, the fuschia shade suits you well! You look much younger with pink :D

Lilli said...

Ah Kim, while the cheek pop didnt impress me that much (the packaging is so cute though), Im so impressed with the lippy, I want one too! Is gorgeous on you, you look so bright! xo

Lilli said...

Forgot to write I like this brand, when I started to use makeup (I was 12 lol, still a child), this was my first ever as at that time was one of the best and safe. xo

Cee said...

I have to admit, I've never quite understood why so many people love Clinique. To me, there's nothing special about any of the products I've tried from their range, so this review rang very true to me. Always appreciate your honesty, Kim!
xox,
Cee

Jane said...

I keep falling in love with all these lip colors you share here! This one is so nice!

Bright lips really work so well on you Kim! I sued to think the same thing about Clinique but they're done a good job with their marketing. I can't believe it's been 14 years. This day always makes me sad and appreciative at the same time.

Nerline Germain said...

Now I see why you said there is more packaging than flower. Very funny, Kim!
I do love both colors on you. Happy weekend, love!

Another great lip color! I have always liked Clinique lipsticks. They go on beautifully and feel good on.

Coco said...

I love that lipstick, while the blush looks a little too light when applied! Hope you are well my dear Kim. Big hugs & Baci,

That lip color is fantastic! I love how this formula feels too. Now, I need to go look at this color in person!

Margo @ PrettyPanda said...

That lipstick looks amazing on you!!! So fresh!

Cheryl van den Berg said...

Even though one got a Bittersweet, I'm happy that the other got a Supersweet. I've always been a fan of the Clinique brand! That's a great color on you.

I haven't tried much makeup from Clinique before either except when I was younger! I've been wanting to try one of those blushes though, I think the flower design is so cute. I might get one during the VIB sale! I think the color looks nice on you. And wow that lipstick is so gorgeous!!!

That is one gorgeously hot lip colour! I adore both Clinique and Clarins and so anything related to the two is good in my book :) This lip colour really is divine and it look so moisturising too :)

My luck with clinque make up has never been good. I tend to like their face creams and such better. This day is a sad one for me as always will be. It has made us stronger as a country, I think, which is a good thing.

I love clinique make up and that lipstick looks amazing on you!! <3 xoxo

The Clinique colour pop blushes are beautiful and I adore the packaging. This shade "Pink Pop" is really pretty and looks as if it would go with most skin tones. The lip shade is also really stunning and looks absolutely beautiful on you.

I haven't used this products yet but the shades of blush and lippie is so pretty especially when worn. I only have a clinique lip gloss and it performs well, so maybe the lippie you've got here is also a good one from Clinique :)

So sweet of you to mention 9/11 here, Kim!

I've used some of Clinique's products when I was younger but never its cosmetics. Gotta change that! ;) Did somebody said something about your GIFs? I still LOVE them, such a great idea for beauty posts!!!

I'm a fan of Clinique and use both the skincare and some of the make up. I especially like the quickliners and the chubby sticks for eyes. I bought the lipstick in Poppy Pop for summer and agree with your review. The pretty shade you chose really suits you!

Ivana Split said...

I'm so happy to hear that you found quite a few products you're very happy with. This lip primer and lipcolour sounds amazing and it is great to hear it feels good on the lips.

I love that photo of you, so cute! That colour is so rich and your lips look so perfect.

Lizzy Fresh said...

I have the exact same thoughts about the Cheek Pop blushes! While I really like the one I have, it's definitely for a more natural look which just isn't something I reach for all the time.

That lip color is TO DIE FOR though! I didn't expect it to be so pigmented, ill have to check out the rest of the range :D

You look beautiful Kim! Those colors look fabulous on you! I'm glad you're enjoying your Clinique products!

Lorena said...

I have not used any Clinique products in a while - however I always go by the counter and look at the products… I've been wanting to try the Chubby stick - mostly because of the name ! ;)
This hot pink lipstick is great on you.

That lipstick colour is goooorgeous! <333

The only thing I use from Clinique is their eyeliners. I haven't tried anything else, but I do like your lip colour, Kim.
