Clinique Blushing Blush in Aglow

Look, it’s a baby blush!

I found a sample size of Aglow blush on Ebay.



Aglow is described as “a soft coppery nude with golden pearl”.


It looks a tad peach on my skin tone.

I thought it would be a little too pale on me (which is why I opted for a cheap sample compact) but it’s surprisingly lovely on my complexion. It gives me a soft, warmed-up flush without being pink or coral. I didn’t think nude would do anything for my complexion, but I can make this work with lots of color combinations on my eyes and lips.

This is a definite future purchase when I use up the sample size compact. ย I really see it working for lots of skin tones: light, medium, olive and tan.

  3. I thought it looked pretty dark in the pan, but once you swatched it, it was obvious why you thought it may be too light. Just looking at product pictures can be so deceiving.

    This blush at first made me think like a bronzer. it’s such a beautiful shade for blush. :)!

    Sometimes blushes can look so plain in the pan until it’s swatched then you realize how pretty it actually is. I love a blush that adds warmth to my skin. Great find.

  6. Subtle yet very pretty! it’s pretty smart looking for a sample beforehand!
