Maybelline Bouncy Blush Review: A Different Take on the Cream Blush

Have you seen these new Maybelline blushes at your local store yet? They’re being reviewed favorably all over the beauty blogs, and I’ve been drawn to the display every time I see it. Usually, it is about half sold out, only bright pinks are left. While I can make a bright pink work, I was hoping for a slightly more subdued color, so when I finally found a Pink Plum on the display, I pounced.

Basically, this is a creme blush. It doesn’t feel very creamy in the compact, it’s a bit harder (more like a NARS Multiple) when you touch it, though it does feel a bit springy. It’s really something you need to experience for yourself.

I’ve found that it is easiest to use your fingers for application, just spread a little on the apples of your cheeks and then lightly blend outward.

It gives a great glow, really very pretty. I’ve found that the color stays pretty much all day.

I’m really loving the Pink Plum color, it looks like it would work for many skin tones. It has worked really well with my light coloring, a slightly pinker version of Orgasm by NARS.

    I've got Pink Plum and Coral Dreams so I have the colors covered. The texture is so unusual since they move around when your finger touches them. They are surprisingly nice though.

    I have the Dream Bouncy blushes in Fresh Pink and Peach Satin and really love them both. I really like the finish they leave on skin. I used my fingers to apply them at first, but have since started using my Real Techniques Expert Face brush, which fits well in the little compacts but also gives me a little more pigmentation and control. One of my favorite things about them is how small they are! It bugs me when blushes take up so much more room than they need to.
