The Clinique Cheek Pops 2015 represent the kind of make up that makes me happy. I mean, who doesn’t want to smile at these? When I saw last year’s versions, I remember thinking, ‘but this is so… pretty’.. and pretty isn’t something I associated with Clinique. However, as time goes on, it’s clear that pretty is definitely the way forward for Clinique when it comes to their make up.

So first up are Pansy Pop, a lively pink shade with tones of violet and Melon Pop, a light, peachy pop – I think both will suit palers tones beautifully for a fresher segue into summer.

Next, up, Rosy Pop, a deep pink, and Pink Pop (which I dinged! …nooooo) which is just one of those fresh flushes of colour that instantly wake up your face.

In the swatch, from bottom to top: Pansy Pop, Melon Pop, Rosy Pop and Pink Pop.

I love this playful side of Clinique – it’s a brand that presents us with some serious skin care and it’s unusual to see any brand bridging a serious side and lighter side so seamlessly. I still think Chubby lips were one of the best beauty inventions of all time – and those glossy lip crayons started a chubby trend that still goes on. I’d love to see one big floral blush palette from Clinique with six mini Cheek Pops so when you open it, it’s just a blast of bright and beautiful flowers! That would go straight into the Beauty Hall of Fame!

You can find Clinique Cheek Pops 2015 from 26th June for £16.50 each.
