Up next in my blush review series is the Clinique Cheek Pop in Fig Pop. These came out a couple of years ago and were all the rage! I just picked it up a couple of months ago and have really been enjoying it. Read on to see swatches and review.
Packaging: Each of the cheek pops come in a round clear plastic packaging with no extra frills added. The packaging is very typical of Clinique products- clean and simple. I like that it’s so small and compact but there is no mirror which can be a downer for some. The powder is imprinted in the shape of a flower and it’s so cute!
Color: Fig pop is a deeper orange with a brown undertone. The color range of the cheek pops is really great ranging from light pink to deep neutrals. There is no shimmer in this shade but it is more of a satin and gives a luminous finish.
Formulation: The powder is hard to the touch but very smooth. There is no grittiness at all and the color blends beautifully. The color is also nicely pigmented unlike my the Kat Von D blush. I would usually use a fluffier brush or a lighter hand and build up the color if I want to.
Last Power: I find the color lasts about 6 hours on me which is not super long. But I touch my face a lot so things wear off pretty quickly.
It is so incredibly difficult to get a good photo showing the blush in action! I usually place this slightly under my cheekbones to get contour and color in all in one go. This color is really flattering on me. If you have redness on your cheeks like me, stay away from pinks and reds and you’ll find blushes much more flattering.
The price of this blush is also very reasonable compared to other high end brands. Since the powder is packed in so tightly there’s not a lot of fall out which means this will probably last you a long time!
