Clarins Skin Illusion Blush,??20


What I love about this new limited-edition release blush from Clinique is that you can literally buff-and-go. No mess, no fuss and (even better) no need for a blusher brush. It has a sheen when applied that makes you look dewy?and naturally?flushed. These blushes come in three shades and suit every skin tone.
