Clinique Cheek Pop Blush (swatches)

 Clinique Cheek Pop Blush Swatches on dark skin (fig pop and black honey pop)

The Clinique Cheek Pop blushes are a popular product on the market that seems to work out well for most people.  This is a baked gelee blush formula that requires a firm or dense brush to pick up the product well.  I do not have an issue picking up pigment with a softer brush, but that does require more building of the color.  Here are some brush examples that I find to work well with baked gelee formulas.

Dense/firm blush brush options (Bobbi Brown Blush brush, Smashbox precise blush brush, ecotools precision blush bush)
Top to Bottom: Bobbi Brown Blush, Smashbox Precise Blush, Ecotools Precision Blush
Bobbi Brown Blush Brush, $60
Smashbox Precise Blush, $34
Ecotools Precision Blush, $7.99

If you are a person that is nervous about blush looking too intense, you may prefer this buildable aspect in your blush formula.  I find this to be one of the easier baked gelee formulas to work with.  I am acne-prone in the cheek area and these blushes give a healthy sheen to my skin without accentuating any of my texture issues.  The Clinique Cheek Pop Blushes retail for $25.00 at Sephora

If you are interested in the shade cola pop, I've done a swatch in a past makeup basket post back in 2017.
