Call me late to the party but WOW am I ever in love with the Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes! I know these have been out for a long time but I had never tried them. I had swatched them at the drugstore one time and found it very difficult to pick up pigment. While the texture felt super fun and intriguing I ended up walking away without ever purchasing. I am so happy I was sent these for review because I need more of them in my life. NEED.
The Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes are a gel formula which provides the bouncy texture. It really is quite neat. They feel very lightweight like a powder and have no stickiness or tackiness at all. They melt into the skin and give a very natural effect as the blushes are sheer on pigment. This is what initially kept me from purchasing these blushes but I quickly learned to appreciate the beauty of this formula. Building up the colour may mean they take a little longer to apply but it yields such a soft, glowing, natural flush that it is well worth the effort. Maybelline recommends applying these with your fingers but I have really been loving the application achieved by buffing these into my cheeks with a brush.
Please excuse my goosebumps. It was chilly! Orchid Hush is lovely lilac pink. Hot Tamale is a vibrant coral red. Rose Petal is a pretty, soft peach.
You can see from the swatches that the blushes offer a sheer, translucent wash of colour. They also have a super fine, subtle shimmer. It is not really visible but adds to the gorgeous glow these blushes offer. You can see Hot Tamale in action in this pic from my Bright Eyes, Glowy Skin, Rosy Cheek Look.
Maybelline Dream Bouncy brushes are available at a drugstore near you.
