Clinique (www.clinique.com) found an answer to this quandary with its new Clinique Quick Blush ($21.50) launching this month.
The product features a cream-to-powder formula that is said to deliver “beautiful, buildable and natural color that is rivaled only by the convenience and portability of its packaging,” according to the company.
But what does that mean? I put a query in to my sources at Clinique, who replied that in terms of the unique cream-to-powder formula, it is made possible due to a “polymeric powder in an emollient base that imparts a powdery finish and easy to blend brush-on application.”
HAPPI sampled Pronto Pink, the shade at the forefront of the collection. The application goes on smooth and is heartier than the average sheer powder wash of color in standard blushers. The color is vibrant—best blended with the fingertips. Ideal for the apples of the cheeks, as it leaves a glow as from a windy day.
Clinique’s products already offer perks with their fragrance-free formulations. Add on its antibacterial brush, travel casing and longwear, true-hue shade, and Clinique Quick Blush is a winner!
