Review: Clinique Blushing Blush: Charming Rose & Aglow

I got interested in Clinique blushes because one of my good friends have been using a same one since I knew her a few years. She’s the type of girl who’s loyal to her cosmetics when she finds they work for her, but shops plenty for clothes instead. According to her, Clinique blushes stay on all day long for her & are carry a good colour payoff. She uses Clinique Blushing Blush in Charming Rose, and it truly adds a POP of colour to her cheeks! When she laughs and blushes, she blushes to the same rose colour. Charming Rose is a very pigmented solid rose colour with no shimmer. I was looking for a blush that would add a POP of colour to my cheeks, and so I got the same one. Unfortunately, it didn’t work so well for me. My skin was more yellow-toned than hers, and the blush looked warm on my cheeks. When I tried to layer on, the colour only looked darkened and dulled my entire skintone rather than adding a POP of colour ): I was disappointed.

I decided to try my luck with AGLOW, which I knew was unlikely to add a POP of colour but would prolly (if successful) add A GLOW (:
And it did! It does make my cheeks glow. It’s a natural copper peachy colour with dull gold shimmer. It is beautiful on my warm skin as it simply brightens my complexion up with a natural glow! (:
I think I might have found my first HG blush when it comes to adding a natural glow. (: very nice indeed!

If you have warm toned yet relatively fair skin like me, Clinique Blushing Blush in Aglow should work beautifully for you.
And if you have more cool toned skin and fair skin like my friends, Clinique Blushing Blush in Charming Rose should work for you! Anyhow, I do not see the shade being sold online. It is however retailing at Clinique counter in Singapore departmental stores.

Price: SGD32.50 (on Strawberrynet) SGD43 (Clinique counters) for 6g of blush; not all that cheap but I think it is reasonably priced for the quality! 3.5/5
Product: 4/5 just sufficiently pigmented yet does not require a skilled light-hand to create a beautiful effect on fair skin.
Packaging: 3/5 Dislike the silver cover that leaves my fingerprints all over it. Don’t mind the transparent base though.
Brush: 5/5 I give full brownie points because compared to all other brushes that come with the blushes I’ve owned, it is of good quality & ANGLED (:
Re-purchase: Hell yeah. I usually say no, because there’s so much product.. but Aglow’s awesome on me -beams-
