The Clinique Cheek Pop blushes** are a popular product on the market that seems to work out well for most people. This is a baked gelee blush formula that requires a firm or dense brush to pick up the product well. I do not have an issue picking up pigment with a softer brush, but that does require more building of the color. Here are some brush examples that I find to work well with baked gelee formulas.

Dense/firm blush brush options (Bobbi Brown Blush brush, Smashbox precise blush brush, ecotools precision blush bush)
Top to Bottom: Bobbi Brown Blush, Smashbox Precise Blush, Ecotools Precision Blush

Bobbi Brown Blush Brush, $62** (Pictured is a natural hair version, but the brand has changed this brush to synthetic hairs.)

Smashbox Precise Blush, $34**

Ecotools Precision Blush, (I think this style has been discontinued.  I have seen a brush with the same name in stores, but the bristles look longer than the one I have.)

If you are a person that is nervous about blush looking too intense, you may prefer this buildable aspect in your blush formula.  I find this to be one of the easier baked gelee formulas to work with.  I am acne-prone in the cheek area and these blushes give a healthy sheen to my skin without accentuating any of my texture issues.  The Clinique Cheek Pop Blushes retail for $26.50 at Sephora.**
