Clinique blushes are by far my favorite. They go on evenly and easily, you can build up the color if you're in the mood, they last all day, and there are so many great colors to choose from. The only reason I took away a lippie is because this isn't my go-to everyday shade, but the actual product deserves all 5. Once you do find your perfect shade, there is plenty of product that will take quite a while to get through. Definitely worth the price tag!
I got this blush in a freebie bag but will for sure purchase again. Mine came in a round large pan so I would be worried about the regular rectangular Clinique blush packaging.
The color is pretty, but it was just ok on me (NW20). The color reminds me of how Revlon's Darling Kissable lip crayon/balm wears on me. It looks like a cool lavender in the container, but once applies skews a bit more purple hued berry shade. As with both of those products, I wanted it to go on looking like it does in the container, but both change to this berry tone.
I'm very happy and pleased with this purchase! Saw the great reviews here on make up alley. I always find it nervewrecking when deciding on a new blush, mostly because I prefer more expensive products for my acne-prone skin, and therefore hate making the wrong choice. I don't find the salespeople to be very reliable, they just say everything looks nice on you, which really isn't true. Especially because I have very fair skin (MAC NW15) and I prefer my make up to look natural when I'm in daylight as well.
Normally I use MAC, but I'm actually much more happy with this blush, it's my new favourite! The colour is really really gorgeous on my fair skin, and it lasts a lot longer than my previous blushes from Jane Eiredale (Cheekie) and MAC (Cubic), which is really a big plus for this product. This Clinique blush has the exact right shade of pink, so that it looks really natural. I will really recommend it to everyone with very fair skin, who needs that extra glow.
About me: NW13 (neutral-cool toned, very fair), blue eyes, Color season is True Summer, Baumann Skin Type is OSPW.
This is a lovely pink-plum blush that serves as a truely neutral pink on me. It is a "no brainer" blush that I enjoy having in my collection, looks amazing over top NARS Albatross.
I got this as a GWP (2 of them!) and it's now my favorite midtone pink everyday blush. For reference, I'm a MAC NC 35-40 and I'm not too big a fan of shimmery cheeks as my skin is oily and sometimes it can end up making me look greasy. It took me a long time to reach for this but now I can't be without it!
Even my tiny sample (about the size of a MAC eyeshadow in a screw top container) has lasted me a long time so I put the second one up for swap.
I use this when I want a really natural healthy glow. It delivers and lasts throughout my 9+ hour workday. I thought it would be too cool toned on my skin (kinda neutral-yellow-olive depending on the season) but it's absolutely perfect! My sallow skin is transformed and looks healthy and fresh.
This has shimmer in it and I'm glad it doesn't emphasize my large pores like a lot of shimmery blushes do and it's not totally obvious even if you're standing in the sun. Try it!
(*edit* I gotta say, I hate clinique's blush containers - rectangle shaped. I think all their blushes should come in pots like my sample did.)

NC10 with very yellow skin
Very sensitive skin
Uber dry skin
At first I was afraid this would be a too cool colour for my yellow-ish skin, but nope, it suited so well. Its a little cool (like a blue-ish pink), and because of that, it gives me a nice "just came from outside" blush.
I will def. purchase this blush again!
this is my very first powder blush,i was using only creamy,mousse or compact-liquid ones before so i was very curious to try a powdered one altough i was skeptical and afraid that it will break me out...boy was i right...from the first day i applied this on my face i got small bumps under the skin,when i stoped using it,my face cleared up...such a shame because the colour is so fresh ,rosey and natural it looks so good on my summer taned skin and also made my face glow...i might have been allergic to one of the ingredients,bismuth i guess...the brush that comes in the package is smooth ,soft ,non itchy and non scratchy i didn't had problems with it ,i even prefered aplying the blush with this brush instead of using my other HE brushes..this product can be a wonderfull gem for anyone who doesn't have acne prone and sensitiv skin..overall i won't be repurchasing it because it was expensive ,it kind of made my pores look bigger and it's not worth it if it breaks me out...i will stick to my creamy and liquid blushes from now on
I love this blush! Such a nice cotton candy pink on my NC30 skin.
It does have shimmer on it but I don't mind as it gives me a sunkissed look combined with bronzer. It makes your skin look very fresh and natural.
I've had this blush for a long time and its my go to day to day blush!
I got this as a GWF and basically never used it...until Lisa Eldridge posted a video for a rosy pink glow last week. I only ever used Clinique's blushing blush in Precious Posy (a golden peach), but Iced Lotus was the only pink blush I had so I gave it a try - and loved it.
I never would have thought it would work for me - I'm fairly neutral skinned, NC25/NW25, but I usually opt for warmer-hued makeup. Iced Lotus looks really bright pink with a lilac-y undertone, so I thought it would look ridiculous on. Instead, the purple disappears when applied, and all that's left is a beautiful, natural, pinky glow. It looks really pretty, like I'm just blushing from within. I love this blush, I will definitely purchase when I run out!
