My take: It is vibrant for sure, glides on and is long lasting. Nothing new. Clinique is my go to choice when I want to make a safe make-up purchase. The color is rich and will brighten your face instantly, but it is too bright of a color for me. I need softer colors for my pale skin even though it might work for some, not for me. I have had other people try the color out and it looked amazing. Dark skin also took to the color beautifully. I guess I’ll have to stick to the pinks and plums in their collections like Bamboo Pink which is light, fresh and long lasting.
$15 sold at www.clinique.com and retailers nationwide.
