This was another gift from my aunt in the US. I just love how cheap Clinique is in the US. I’ve been eying this for a while ever since it was launched.
Long-wearing powder creates a sheer, subtle radiance that looks fresh, stays fresh. Sweep over face for an allover, luminous glow, or brush on cheekbones to highlight.
Use Powder Brush to pick up all or one shade of floral powder. Sweep over face and neck—even chest—for a natural-looking, allover glow. Or spot-apply to highlight apples of cheeks.
As much hype as this one received when it was first launched, I found it a real disappointment. Yes, it’s very pretty, and I love the design of the flower on the blush. That was to the extent of it, because the colours just did not show on my face. As much of the pink I picked up with my brush, again, it did not show. I’m afraid I did not have any photos of the blush on my to show you. I didn’t see the point, because all you’d see is my bare skin anyway.
Okay, so maybe I mistook it for a blush (since it’s called an allover colour), so I brushed the powder on my face. Not a hint of difference. So now I’m stuck with a very pretty blush design but cannot be used. Gah!
Clinque’s Fresh Bloom Allover Colour comes in 4 shades – Posy, Almond Blossom, Peony (that’s the one I have) and Plum Poppy.
Perhaps I’ve gotten myself the wrong colour. Either way, I don’t think I’m going to fork out that amount of money to find out. Sigh.
The Allover Colour (9g) is available online at USD29.50. In Australia, you can get this at any Clinique counter at AUD59. In the UK, this would cost 23 pounds. And in Malaysia, it’s RM12x (can’t really remember the exact figure).
What I like about it: It has a pretty design of the flower on the blush. Yep, that’s it.
What I did not like about it: It did not work on me as a blush nor as an overall colour. Double gah.
