A spring look with the new Clinique Cheek Pop blush, Clinique Chubby Stick & Clinique A Different Nail Enamel

Just a few more weeks and it’s spring again, woohoo! I don’t know about you, but I’m waiting for March 21 with such open arms that I’m slowly starting to get muscle cramps. And I think that the people at Clinique feel the same way, because their new spring collection for 2014 looks absolutely amazing. Have a look!

Clinique Cheek Pop blush in Berry Pop

I really fell in love at first press release with the new Clinique Cheek Pop blushes, and they all went on my wish list even before they were actually launched. In the meantime the Cheek Pops have hit the stores and I’ve become the proud owner of Berry Pop, a bright pink shade with somewhat cool undertones and a lovely satin finish. The texture of the Clinique Cheek Pop blush is incredibly soft and blendable – almost like a cream blush – and the color is intensely pigmented and longlasting. Do we have a winner? Oh yes we do! Berry Pop is an absolute keeper, and there’s a big chance that next time I’m at the Clinique counter I’ll pick up another Cheek Pop blush*!
* probably Peach Pop, a warm peachy shade

Clinique Chubby Stick in Pudgy Peony

I like tinted lip balms, and I love it when they come in jumbo pencil form like the Clinique Chubby Sticks do. Pudgy Peony is a lovely fuchsia pink shade with a soft sheen, and I rrreally dig the color and the finish. I only wish the formula was a bit more moisturizing. The mango and shea butter in the Clinique Chubby Sticks are supposed to intensely hydrate the lips, but my very dry lips seem to need more. For people with less high-maintenance lips the Chubby Sticks might be moisturizing enough, but for me the formula could have been just a tad more buttery.

Retail price: 29 CHF, available in four new spring shades.

Clinique A Different Nail Enamel in Hi Sweetie

The very first Clinique A Different Nail Enamel nail polish that I tried left me very impressed, and the new bright pink color Hi Sweetie doesn’t disappoint either. The nail polish is a dream to apply, it provides perfect coverage in just one coat, and it last about four to five days on me without chipping and with minimal tip wear. And the Clinique A Different Nail Enamel nail lacquers are all completely hypoallergenic, which is a nice plus especially if you’re sensitive or allergic to certain chemicals in traditional nail polish.

  6. The blushers are incredibly pretty with that gorgeous pattern :o) Xx

  7. Argh I want that blush!

  8. Wat een leuke kleuren, ook super leuk dat ze met elkaar matchen. Dit doet me zo verlangen naar de lente!

  9. Die kleuren maken me helemaal vrolijk :)

  10. Mooie look heb je gemaakt! Ik word helemaal vrolijk van al dat roze :)

  11. Awh die blushhhh echt mooi :D heel mooi die roze kleuren

  12. Pudgy peoony looks a lot like revlon lip butter in sweet tart (which I happen to be wearing right now). But those blushes are so gorgeous. I was thinking of getting plum pop for myself. I also think the peach one would be equally as lovely on you.

  13. Wat een prachtige producten: vooral de blush!! En geweldige look heb je ermee gemaakt. De fuchsia kleuren staan je super mooi!

  14. ooit had ik een favoriete clinque blush, die is nu verstoten, wat is deze mooi ♥

  15. Oehh die nagellak is heel mooi!

  16. This pink looks great on you, I love Clinique products, I usually use their skin care products… I must try out the nail polish though… I love good quality that lasts :)

  17. Wow, love the collection especially the blush is beautiful! Deep pink suits your so well honey, you look fabulous <3

  18. Mooi! ik heb bijna altijd de clinique chubby stick in curvy candy in mijn tas:)
    Nog even over de zalando winactie, helaas geldt dat niet voor :( Ik heb hier in ieder geval van geleerd dit gelijk na te vragen volgende keer!

  19. Oh wow! Look at all the vibrant colours! Really digging this collection, and I want that pop blush:)

  20. That blush is the prettiest makeup I’ve seen in ages!

  21. Ja, inderdaad perfect voor de lente. Maar ook gewoon.. elk ander moment. WOWZA. Ik wil die ook wel (alhoewel ik de nagellak zou skippen, want zo’n kleur heb ik al). Maar die chubby stick.. sooo pretty!

  22. Oooh all super pretty on you! Love it! I still haven’t taken the plunge but every time I see these lovely blushes I swatch and swatch. I recently got a chubby in a GWP and I too was surprised at how little moisture it provided, could be due to the “intense” factor.

    Ok now, enough of winter, spring get over here!!! *taps foot*

  23. So pink, I love it! Those new Clinique cheek pops are all on my wish list. :)

  24. Super mooie producten, heerlijke kleuren! Ik krijg echt een lentegevoel :).

  25. Heel mooie producten!

  26. Ahhh you GIVE ME SOME OF THAT NOW!!! I heard it’s April here, but I’m hoping it’ll turn out to be the end of March as well. Everything is so dang pretty!

  27. wauw, die blush! Erg mooi :). En die chubby stick is ook prachtig! Mooie, lente kleur :)

  28. Die blush ziet er prachtig uit! Ook die chubby stick is lekker vrolijk! x

  29. Die blush ziet er echt geweldig uit met dat bloemenpatroontje! En een hele look met roze in de hoofdrol is blijkbaar lekker fleurig en doet denken aan de lente!

  30. Oh my!! Hoe pretty is that blush!! This goes on my list!! Loved it

  31. prachtige producten :)

  32. De producten doen me echt popelen voor lenteweer!

    The blush is such a pretty colour, love it, you look beautiful in this photo hun, stunning lip hue. I think Gaga’s dress was sculpted in that way thats why it made her look larger on the hips. Its always great hearing from you hun.

    Die blush is mooi qua kleur, en een echt kunstwerkje om naar te kijken ;)

  44. Very pretty! I’ve been lusting after these. But tell me, what product are you using on your eye brows? They look amazing!

    • Aw, thanks Karen! I have very full eyebrows naturally (I actually have a big bushy unibrow if I don’t do daily maintenance on them) but I fill them in a bit with e.l.f. eyebrow powder and then use a little clear gel to keep all the hairs in place.

  45. Such a beautiful color palette! Pink looks amazing on you!
    I can’t wait for spring either! It’s my favorite season! :)

  46. Love it!! I have three of the Cheek Pops now, and I think I’m just going to get the last one now haha-might as well have the set, right?

  47. Wat een mooie look Clinique heeft zo’n mooie producten in het assortiment :)

  48. These look great together! I was not into the Cheek pops, but everyone is posting about them and my curiosity is growing :P

  49. Pink in spring, I love the design on their blush-It’s just perfect!

  50. Ik wil die chubby stick van Cliniqueeeee <3 Xx

  51. I’ve just passed by the clinique counter today and the bright pinks caught my eye. The whole collection looks amazing! I need to try the blushes… love the colour :-)

  52. I am obsessed with Clinique products. It doesnt break me out, they have colirs foy skin tone…it just works. The chubbies are my favorite lip colors.

  53. die blush is mega mega mooi, zo mooi heb ik nog nooit een blush gezien<3

  54. VERY spring appropriate. Ik wil die chubby sticks echt in alle kleuren.

  55. I want it all, en liefst nog nu meteen

  56. Deze producten spreken me zo hard aan! Ze zien er geweldig leuk uit!
    Liefs, Annelies

  57. Hele mooie producten! Ze zijn ook zeker helemaal lenteproof qua kleuren en de blush met het mooie bloemetje.

  58. Such a lovely look on you! I saw the new pop blushes at Sephora this weekend, and now I’m kicking myself a bit for not picking one (or two!) up! :)


  59. I got the chubby stick, I used it only once and I love it. I have dry lips as well but I found the Clinique tinted lip balms lasted longer than the other I’ve tried.

  60. I love it! Pink looks great on you.

  61. Beautiful make-up! The lip colour suits you perfectly!

  62. Great post, and FANTASTIC photos!! Love the shade, too

  63. I love the Clinique chubby sticks so I’m definitely going to pick up some of the new colors! I hope they come out with some other shades rather than just pinky tones! xx

  64. Wauw, heel mooi!

  65. Och love it!
    Roze staat je kei goed, je lippen zijn zo mooi :)


  66. This is adorable! Love the blush especially and guess what? I nominated you for the Liebster Award! For more info go here:

  67. Have the Chubby Stick (and love it), WANT the blush, and the nail polish is pretty with the look! :-) Pink is such a wonderful colour!

  68. Is it wrong that all I can think of is the Movie/Soundtrack Pretty In Pink?

  69. Wauw die blush is to die for! Echt prachtig.

  70. I like the packaging and design of the blush :-) Thanks for showing, lovely products.

  71. Oh, I really need one of these blushes, Gerbera is my favourite flower and they seem to have such a good quality!
