Clarins Blush Prodige Illuminating Cheek Colour - Miami Pink

If you read my spending ban update this week, you'll know I was a bit naughty and bought lots of clothes and I also used my Debenhams gift card on this little beauty that I'm going to share with you today: the Clarins Blush Prodige Illuminating Cheek Colour in Miami Pink.

It looks extremely pretty no? The shade Miami Pink, as you would expect by the name, is a bright, beachy coral-pink and it comes in this rather gold (plastic) compact within a red velvet pouch.

I don't know if you can see the swatch, but it swatches more pink that coral, but with warm undertones so it gives a really nice flush to the cheeks. I first fell in love with this when I had my make-up applied at my local Clarins counter, and even my mum remarked how lovely this looked on my cheeks. When the MUA showed me the colour in the pan for the first time, I will admit, it did look a bit too bright. However, deftly applied to the cheeks, it doesn't appear too bright and overpowering, and offers a soft pink glow.

You can see it slightly better in the picture with flash, but these pictures still don't quite do this colour justice. I really like this blush, it's bright and perky but without being too over-powering.

You can buy Clarins Blush Prodige from most Clarins counters, and from Debenhams, House of Frasers, Boots and more, generally retailing for around £25 and comes in six shades including Miami  Pink.

Let me know what you think if you've tried this blush. Also, what other Clarins products would you recommend? Just... y'know... for when my ban finishes... :P
