I've been hankering after one of the gorgeous colour pop blushes from Clinique for so long now, I'm surprised they aren't discontinued! But being a mummy of 3 means I have to put such gorgeous pieces to one side sometimes.
But, as it was my somethingTH birthday (no, I'm not telling!), I had cash to spend on myself guilt free! And of course it HAD to go on makeup because I'm totally addicted to all the bright colours, tactile packaging and trying new styles every day (shameless plug - tutorials coming soon!). So I got my little notepad out of all the items I see that I want to try, and top of my list was this.
Trying to decide which colour was difficult, they all looked as gorgeous as the next, but no, I was determined to stop at one! The peachy/browny shades were far too warm for my cool toned skin, so it was between the two pinks. This colour just seemed more 'me' and matched the closest to the colour I naturally blushed.
And so the decision was made and after popping onto the Clinique website via Quidco.com, I ordered this and a couple of little bits too which I'll talk about on a separate post.
The question was, did it live up to the hype? The answer was, emphatically, yes! The gorgeous chunky acrylic packaging was a joy to hold, adds a weight to it, just makes it stand out so much more. The colour looked just like I'd expected and is a dream on the typical English Rose skin, but I'd confidently say it would layer nicely for darker skin too.
The product itself felt velvety smooth, although I really didn't want to touch the gorgeous embossed flower shape, but needs must! It appeared bright on my finger, but as soon as I applied it it was very sheer and offered such a barely there flush, which was a nice change to be honest! I'm the first to admit I'm a bit heavy handed with blushes but there's no chance of that with this. It quite simply is beautiful. There's nothing I can add to it apart from saying, everyone needs to own at least one!
I do wish it wasn't so darn pretty though, it feels wrong to ruin the gorgeous flower, but I know I will get my money's worth out of this blusher and can see I shall be sporting the lightly flushed look for a significant amount of time.
Quite simply, if you're thinking of buying it, buy it! You won't regret it!
That's all for now my Lovelies, good night to you all!
