When I saw these come on sale for under $5 at Shoppers Drug Mart a couple months ago I knew I needed to pick up some more shades. I am so in love with the Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes! I was still trying to be frugal so I selected two shades for myself and one for my mom. The two shades I picked up to add to my little growing collection were Candy Coral and Fresh Pink.
The Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes are a gel formula which provides the bouncy texture. It really is quite neat. They feel very lightweight like a powder and have no stickiness or tackiness at all. They melt into the skin and give a very natural effect as the blushes are sheer on pigment. This is what initially kept me from purchasing these blushes but I quickly learned to appreciate the beauty of this formula. Building up the colour may mean they take a little longer to apply but it yields such a soft, glowing, natural flush that it is well worth the effort. Maybelline recommends applying these with your fingers but I have really been loving the application achieved by buffing these into my cheeks with a brush.
Candy Coral is a beautiful bright orange coral and Fresh Pink is the perfect medium pink.
I previously reviewed Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Orchid Hush, Rose Petal, and Hot Tamale so I thought it would be helpful to do some photos and swatches of all five shades together:
I am very pleased with the variety of shades I have from the lineup. Still doesn’t keep me from wanting them ALL! I find myself reaching for Hot Tamale and Fresh Pink most often.
