Clinique Cheek Pop Blush in "Plum Pop" & Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Color in "Plushest Punch": Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
Happy Friday everyone! Today I have another spring & lip post featuring two more lovely products from Clinique, the Cheek Pop Blush in "Plum Pop" ($24 CAD) and the Chubby Stick Intense in "Plushest Punch" ($19 CAD). To read more, click......

Cheek Pop Blush in "Plum Pop" ($24 CAD):
What it is:
-Silky, effortless, and natural powdered blush
-Long lasting stay-put formulation 

The blush is packaged in a clear acrylic case and it has a daisy design imprinted on the surface. Isn't it so pretty? I shed a tiny tear on the inside the first time I swept my blush brush across that perfect design.
Pigmentation & Formulation:
The color "Plum Pop" is a sheer cool tone pink with a subtle shimmer. When worn on the cheeks the shimmer becomes almost invisible. The blush has a baked texture so the pigmentation is slightly sheer. When you sweep across it with a brush, not a lot of powder gets kicked up. The color is very buildable so you can either go for a very natural glow or a more intense flush.
The blush lasted all day; the wear is very impressive!

-Beautiful packaging design
-Buildable color allows a lot of versatility
-Long wearing

-Slightly harder texture due to the unique baking process used during production

What it is:
-A moisturizing tinted color balm with intense pigmentation
-Formulated with mango and shea butter to keep the lips feeling smooth and soft

The Chubby Stick comes in a twist up crayon form. The design is very convenient and cute.

Pigmentation & Formulation:
The color "Plushest Punch" is a very pigmented deep pink. The color really packed a punch and the formulation is incredibly moisturizing! I also love how the formulation of this shade really helps smooth over any dryness and wrinkles on the lips, making the lips look plumper and healthier.

The wear or this one is slightly shorter compared to "Heftiest Hibiscus" because it has a glossier finish so it transferred more easily.

-Rich pigmentation
-Convenient twist up packaging
-Moisturizing and cushioning formulation

-Not transfer proof so it has a shorter wear time (three to four hours)

Here are both products worn on the face:
There we have it, two more hits from Clinique! If you are a fan of pink lips and cheeks then look no further than Plum Pop and Plushest Punch!

Both products are available at Sephora online and in stores, Clinique online, and other department stores where Clinique products are sold.
