The New Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Fresh Pink

What a cool product. The latest blush released from Maybelline has the most unique texture and feel with its sponge-like bounce and silky powder application. It feels like a cream blush but is actually powder in the way that it applies. The color selection is pretty much amazing with super fresh and bright shades that scream "SPRING!" I was already a fan of the Maybelline Dream Mousse blush but I really wish they had more of a matte selection because I think they are rather shimmery. The Bouncy blush in Fresh Pink looks matte for the most part but may have some very fine shimmer that certainly isn't very noticeable. In fact, I don't even know if its really there or if I'm seeing things and making the whole thing up. Fresh Pink, the color I chose, pretty much looks like it sounds in that its a very beautiful, cool-toned, bubble-gum pink. In the photos, it appears to have a blue undertone but its less noticeable in person. It really gives your cheeks a natural flushed appearance. Well, actually, how natural is having hot pink cheeks? Let me put it another way. It looks bright and scary but goes on very sheer and natural if that is how you choose to wear it. I took some pictures showing the color on my wrist. The swatch is what the pigmentation looks like after a few good coats, you can make it much more sheer but I wanted it to show up on camera.

  1. Maybe it looks a bit unnatural but the color is gorgeous! :)

  2. I bought 3 of these when they first came out, went out to my car and immediately swatched them. I then immediately went back into Walgreens and got a refund. I absolutely hated all of them. When you press your finger into them they become totally deformed. Secondly, the texture of them I found to be slimey feeling. Yick! Lastly, the pigmentation with all of them was atrocious. Blending them out after applying 5 to 6 coats of the stuff resulted in them totally disappearing. I had the Walgreens cashier try them for herself and she totally agreed. I'm really surprised that you love these. They really are the worse blushes I've ever tried, by far. NYX makes beautiful cream blush sticks that walk all over these. They're super pigmented, very easy to blend, and look spectacular on the skin.

    1. I've heard that the lighter shades are not near as pigmented as some of the darker shades but I haven't purchased any beyond this one in the post. I really love NYX cream blush, you're right they are so easy to blend!! Thanks so much for reading and commenting :)
