The Gerbera Daisy is perhaps my favourite flower. A handful of people can attest to this fact.

Spring is blooming in Clinique's world and there's a bouquet on offer for every gal.

Of the four colours available for the taking (Ginger, Peach, Berry and Plum), I picked Peach Pop -- it's really difficult not being pun-y here. Peach Pop is a coral pink infused with rose gold light reflecting particles. The rose gold is undetectable in the pan, but it comes to life as soon as the light dances across your cheeks.

Tickling the petals with your finger tips or blush brush pulls away enough colour to give your cheeks that just been pinched rosy hue. If you desire the colour as seen in the swatch above, simply brush on a tiny bit more. The finish was luminous and never appeared powdery.

Peach Pop in the pan closely resembled Gilda, but upon seeing the colours side by side on the inside of my arm it is evident Gilda is a matte orange-y peach. Orgasm, however, is on the sheerer side and the gold shimmer is easily detected in both the pan and the swatch.
