There are many things to love about this little one. The adorable look, simple and sturdy packaging, 4 of very wearable shades, good color payoffs and lasting power, and even the price that is just right.
True I don't think the colors are all that unique, although they pretty much cover the whole spectrum. I was still inclined to pick one up mostly attracted by the "powderless powder" finish it supposedly gives.
Clinique Cheek Pop
03 Berry Pop
I mean, look at it.
It doesn't get much cuter than this.
I also considered Plum Pop which is another cool toned pink but a little lighter than Berry Pop.
To me, Berry Pop looks brighter and has more red.
The texture is indeed unique.
The blush feels very dense and hard to touch, and there is virtually no fallout.
I used my fingertip for this swatch, and you can see how creamy and even the finish is.
Berry Pop is a vibrant raspberry pink.
It is quite pigmented but I find it is not as difficult to blend out as I've read from some reviews. I also think it has to do with the embossed surface that deposits the color unevenly on the brush. For this, I use a fluffy brush like the Real Techniques blush brush (which I normally don't like for blush since I find it awkwardly big) with a gentle patting motion.
I adore Berry Pop mainly for the "powderless" finish that mimics the one of cream blush.
Turns out I have quite a few blushes with similar tones, but it is worth having another one when it comes with different finish. (Yup, it's the sound of "justification".)
Revlon Haute Pink (reviewed here) is closer in color but the powdery finish is completely different.
Here is how Berry Pop looks on me.
I initially took this picture for my review on Dior Fluid Stick Kiss Me, but I thought this funny FOTD with extra chubby cheeks (it's the angle, I swear) is just perfect for this post. ;D
Thanks for looking.
