Clinique launched two blush palettes in their Christmas collection with the Clinique Warm Up Cheek Pop Blush Palette and the Clinique Cool Down Cheek Pop Blush Palette. I have already reviewed the Cool Down Palette right here, so it was only time before I featured the Clinique Warm Up Cheek Pop Blush Palette too.
The Clinique Warm Up Cheek Pop Blush Palette launched last year alongside the Cool Down Palette as part of their holiday collection, but they sold out super quickly which upset a lot of Clinique fans, so it’s fab that they’ve both been brought back again this year too.
“Vibrant yet natural-looking cheek color that looks virtually powderless. In a silky smooth, stay-true formula with shades for every skin tone. That just-pinched look, simply effortless. In three shades to warm up your complexion.“
Like the names suggest, one of the palettes is cool toned and the other palette is warm toned. Both palettes contain three shades of the Clinique Cheek Pop Blushers, which happen to be one of my all-time favourite blush formulas. These are both limited edition blusher palettes, but the shades inside the palette are permanent.
Each of the two palettes are $29.50 / £35 each, but the value of the blushers inside the palette is $78 / £57, so you’re getting an amazing deal. Last year’s version of the Clinique Warm Up Cheek Pop Blush Palette had a sparkly glittery cover, but it was glued on glitter rather than coated glitter, and reviews commented on how much glitter falls off the front cover.
This year’s version of the Clinique Warm Up Cheek Pop Blush Palette is a little more practical, yet sleek with a peach coloured plastic palette and a mirror inside the lid. It’s nice and slimline, compact and feels robust enough that it’d be perfect for travel.
The Clinique Warm Up Cheek Pop Blush Palette includes the following three Clinique Cheek Pop Blush shades;
- Nude Pop
- Ginger Pop
- Cola Pop
I personally much prefer cooler toned blushes, so I bought the Cool Down Palette first, and was so wowed by the quality of the blushes inside the palette, I had to have the Warm Up Palette too. Nude Pop is such a pretty nude beige shade, a bright coral and a deep burgundy shade.
They’re beautiful blushes both in terms of shades, and formulas, and I’d really recommend snapping either of the palettes up ASAP whilst you can, as they will sell out quickly again, just like last year.
