Clinique Iced Lotus - Review

Hey guys,
Everyone has those makeup items that always manage to find their way to the bottom of the pile. For me it's my Clinique blush in Iced Lotus, it's a gorgeous cool pink colour but one way or another it gets forgotten about.  I think it's because it's so pink it scares me, I don't own many 'proper' pink blushers and to be honest when I look at this blush I start to think of the Barbie dolls I had while I was growing up. However, this blush is actually pretty gorgeous and it's taken a prominent place at the front of my beauty pile over the past few weeks.


Iced Lotus is described on the Clinique website as a blue pink with a white shimmer, maybe it's because this blush is on the cold side of the spectrum that it gets forgotten about. I do actually love the colour, especially now I have a bit of a tan on my face; it gives you the perfect pretty flush. The blush itself is extremely pigmented which means it can be a bit of a pain to apply, but armed with my real techniques blush brush I can achieve the perfect finish without using too much. The shimmer gives a subtle glow and makes it perfect to team with some bright lipstick without overdoing it. The shimmery particles means that it also gives a bit of a highlighting effect without looking too sparkly.


Overall I need to stop neglecting this blush, it has amazing pigmentation and staying power and I need to branch out of my peachy comfort zone and start getting the confidence to wear it more often.

Iced Lotus is available on the Clinique website here or Boots here


Do you guys have makeup items like this or is it just me?

Lots of Love
