Product Review: Clinique Powder Blush- "Aglow"


Clinique Powder Blush- "Aglow"

Product Description:

Clinique says: Silky formula sweeps effortlessly over cheekbones to create a natural look. Fresh, jet-milled colour builds and blends beautifully to desired intensity with custom sculpting brush. Long-wearing, colour-true. Oil-free.



I couldn't agree more! A friend of mine sent this product to me as a gift a little while ago. Ever since I started using this blush it has become one that I use almost every day! I had been using Nars "Orgasm" which is an extremely pigmented peachy pink. After a year of using it, it fell and the pressed powder broke into chunks. It's almost impossible to use it like that. Perhaps I would have bought a new one had I not found this one. I never thought I would find something so similar for less expensive. Dare I say I even prefer the Clinique one for my more natural every day look!


What I love:

-It gives me a very natural peachy pink glow without making me look overly made up.

- It's very pigmented. I brush it over the apples of my cheeks and up onto my cheek bones. With just one sweep I have beautiful color.

-It's very build-able and blends easily. If you feel like you need more then just that natural glow you can build up the color. Brushing it over the cheeks just a few more times to get your desired look.


- It comes with a handy little brush. I like my blush brushes though so I don't use it. I kept it to the side just in case I want to take it with me when I travel.



-It doesn't look like there's alot of product in there but I've been using it every day ever since I received it and I haven't even made a dent since so little product gives the desired effect easily. Looks like it'll last a while.

- It's long lasting- I apply it in the morning and it doesn't fade at all until I take off my makeup hours later.


- It is soft and doesn't have any of that annoying chunky glitter that you may find other blushes or powder products but it does have an extremely slight pretty sparkle to it.



-The price is not too bad for a blush- $21.00 and compared to my other favorite Nars blush which is $28.00 this is a pretty great deal.



-If the shade "aglow" isn't your favorite or doesn't suit you there are many other shade choices to choose from with Clinique's blush powders.

- I really like the packaging. It's not a very large compact. Easily opened and closed and the large mirror is pretty handy.


Overall:

-There is absolutely nothing that I don't like about this blush. When I run out of product I will most likely purchase a new one in this color or another shade.

-I don't think I have ever tried any of cliniques blushes or very many of their products at all. I will be heading to their counter next time I'm at a department store for sure!
