Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush
You've seen a powder, cream, gel, and liquid blush - but have you seen a fluffy one? I thought not! Dome blushes have been around for quite some time but I don't think I've tried one that's aerated like the Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush (P429). True to its name, the Bouncy Blush has a springy surface. It doesn't really bounce back once you dent it but it's still hella fun to poke it. Poke poke.
See? Novelty aside, the Maybelline Dream Bouncy blush is a nice cheek color for everyday use. It has a silky texture that's easy to spread all over the apples of the cheeks. The pigmentation is just okay - you'll need about two to three layers to make it show up - but at least you know that you'll never get a clown face accidentally. I'm okay with layering when it comes to blushes. I prefer to have as much control as possible when tinting my cheeks.
I like that this blush doesn't mess my base makeup since it's so easy to blend in. Staying power is average at about three hours before it starts to fade, but if you want it to stay longer you can set it with loose translucent powder or another blush in the same color department.
Candy Coral is a warm, coral shade that's perfect for medium to morena girls
Fresh Pink is a cotton candy pink that's pretty cool - best for those with fair skin, although you can see that it sorta works on me. I look paler in the photo, probably because of the color combinations I used. The power of makeup, yeah!
The blush doesn't really set completely. It feels powdery after a few minutes though, not sticky at all. I've tried using this mousse blush with a brush but the results are too faint - it looks more concentrated when applied with yer good ol' fingers.
Downside: the packaging doesn't look particularly resilient. Also, after a while the dome blush will look kinda beat up due to repeated poking. Ah well. Can't have everything.
Overall, the Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush is a a nice blush that you'll enjoy for casual day outs. It looks shabby in the swatches but on the cheeks, wow, it's really quite pretty and natural-looking! It's best for dry skin but if you're stubborn you can always just set it with your fave powder.
