First Impressions: Clinique Cheek Pop Blush in "Plum Pop"

Today I wanted to share with you a first impressions post on a makeup product that I received a few weeks ago for my birthday. It's one I had been lusting over for a while mainly due to how beautiful it looked and it's from the brand Clinique

I've never really tried Clinique before - bar the odd few magazine freebies (gotta love those freebies) - but I've always wanted to. However, the brand itself is rather pricey and none of their products ever called out to me enough. Whilst browsing at makeup one day though, I spotted their Cheek Pop blushes and was instantly drawn to them. After casually hinting my interest at one particular blush from the range, I was lucky enough to get it for my birthday.

The shade I got of the Cheek Pop blush was "Plum Pop" which is a cool toned, pinky-purple. It's similar to another colour in the range called "Berry Pop" but this shade is a little lighter and more natural looking which is why I went for it. I think this is a really beautiful, versatile shade that can be paired with a variety of different looks. You can definitely go for more of a sheer, flushed look if you wanted to but you can also definitely intensify that colour as well depending on how much coverage you desire.

This blush leaves a beautifully soft, smooth, satin-finish to the skin and it blends really nicely. As stated above, it leaves a very natural flush of colour to the skin and looks almost like a cream blush which I love. It's very glowy and is perfect for everyday - I think this is a colour that can work for a lot of different skin tones too due to the fact that it is easily buildable. From the the few applications I have worn the blush so far, it has had good wear time of around 6-8 hours.

And can we just talk about the product itself and how BEAUTIFUL it looks for a moment? I absolutely love the floral pattern in the product and it kind of hurts me to even sweep my brush across it, it's just so pretty!

I'm enjoying this blush so far and I'm very impressed with it's formulation and colour payoff in particular. You can grab this blush from FeelUnique for £17.00!
