Review: Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush

8 Feb

Hello everyone! The Dream Bouncy blushes are finally out in Canada! I was totally ecstatic about it that I picked it up full price (and then promptly had buyers remorse after).

Description: A light fluffy blush just for your perfect Spring face. 05 Fresh Pink is a light blue based pink, and 50 Plum Wine is a darker burgandy blush. On the cheeks both are matte and the swatches were done with 5 (yes five) swipes.

Review: I really liked the idea behind these blushes the texture is very fun to play with and personally I think they are pretty fun product but the bad outweighs the good sadly. Packaging is cute and small thus making storage a little easier with these guys compared to say an NYC Blushable Creme Stick. As for the texture it is a very interesting denser mouse-like product very fun to play with. The staying power is a huge issue out of the two I purchased Plum Wine lasted around 2-3 hours (a normal blush wears around 5-6 hours for me) while Fresh Pink only lasted 1-2 hours. And the pigmentation isn’t that great with these you have to put on  layer and layer of product just to see the color show up on your skin. I have to just say to save your money on these as they are a great product idea but the formulation just fell short. Do Not Recommend.

Cost: $8-11CDN @ local drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? I would like to recommend it but the staying power and pigmentation was weak. In the end, I would not recommend it for those looking for pigmented long lasting blushes but those who are looking for a fun product to play with this might be up your alley.

    Haha those blushes almost look as if they would inflate back to the original shape. Do they? 😛
