New Clinique Cheek Pop Blusher - Plum Pop - Guest Post from Lorrrrrrrrraine!


All the R's (so titled, by me, because of her Twitter handle @lorrrrrrrrraine) (that's NINE) is not only one of the fanciest faces I know but she's one of the most effortlessly hilarious writers to grace this here Interweb. She's popped by (see what I did there?) to give us the 411 on one of my most lusted after beauty products in quite a while - The Clinique Cheek Pops:
Ah, sure look - this was always going to be a positive review. I've been mooning over Clinique Cheek pops, €20, since the first promo pix hit the internet, with a deep-seated certainty that they were just my kind of blusher.
And yep, they are. A gorgeous floral design on the product itself is matched up in ooh-that's-grand by sturdy but simple packaging that clicks shut with a satisfying clunk. No handbag disasters anticipated!

Plum Pop is a cool pink that, depending on how heavy-handed you are, looks like anything from a sheen of baby pink to a block of fuchsia. I've got a light swipe on the picture, but this stands up to layering very well. It allows the texture of your skin to show through, no matter how close to Boy George territory you get.


What looks like sparkle in the pot translates to a subtle radiance when applied - a huge bonus for folks like me with mammoth pores to conceal. General pink nicery aside, the texture of this blush is seriously good, creating a veil of colour and glow without any drawbacks. 
I see these selling out fast, so get your rear in gear if you fancy a gander! I'll bet my best hat you won't be disappointed. 
As of this morning, Clinique Cheek Pops STILL aren't available online but Imma hunt some down IRL (in real life) TODAY!
Please be sure to drop by Lorraine's blog, John, It's Only Makeup and show her some love - if you don't already. You won't regret it - trust meh!
