So tonight, I wanted to share with you my thoughts on the latest blush to come from Maybelline--their Dream Bouncy Blush.
You may have already read some reviews and have your mind made up. I try to not read a whole lot of reviews when I'm going to review a product, because I really want the opinions to be my own; and really have a clear mind while I'm trying it so I'm not swayed by good (or bad) things others have said.
I've been using two shades of it
|05 Fresh Pink|
|45 Orchid Hush|
Why You'll Love ItFreshest flush ever:
• Revolutionary gel formula provides a new bouncy texture.
• Lightweight like a powder, yet melts seamlessly into skin like a cream
• Natural sheer wash of color that is buildable for greater color intensity
• Dermatologist tested, Allergy tested
• Non comedogenic
(I had no idea what "comedogenic" means and p.s. it's underlined red as if it's misspelled... so I wasn't sure if it was even a real word. I looked it up on Dictionary.com and learned the definition: "tending to clog pores and encourage the formation of blackheads." Good to know!)
So hey, that all sounds pretty great right? Who would not want to try something that promises a "bouncy" texture! I didn't even know what to expect for it to be bouncy. I think my first thoughts were like a trampoline and I thought my finger was going to press in and bounce back! (turns out, I just made an indention in it lol) But the consistency really is different than anything else I've felt before. It's definitely more like a cream blush, but so light and soft! I absolutely love the texture.
It could be the shades I chose, but both of them were pretty light when applied--which for me is a very good thing because I don't want a huge dose of color on my cheeks, just a light splash:) The color can be built upon by applying additonal layers.
Overall, I am quite pleased with the product. It's about $7ish depending on where you pick it up; which may be a little pricey for the small size of it; but it's definitely something fun to try if you want a soft, light flush to your cheeks. With ten shades to choose from, there's probably a color for everyone:)
**note: the pictures are just swatches from swirling my finger in the blush and rubbing it on my arm. After blending, I could not get a good picture with the lighting to show how it blends in and leaves a light shimmer. Will try to get better daylight pictures to update with soon:)
Have you tried the bouncy blushes yet? If not, will you? Or is this a product you think you'll skip?
