Yesterday LoveforLacquer (check out her site as well!) asked me if I had seen the new Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes yet, and I hadn’t. They sounded interesting and I was intrigued, so on the way to work this morning I left a little earlier than usual so I could stop by Walgreens and check out some of their items (and see if they had any sales going on!).
I scoured the Maybelline section and couldn’t find them – I was a little disappointed but when I turned around Revlon’s Lip Butters were sitting there so I was quickly consoled. Next to the Lip Butters was a display containing Essies Shine of the Times also and I will admit I forgot my original reason for going to Walgreens.
I left the cosmetic section to grab a Starbucks Frap drink on the other side of the store when I saw the display. Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush! They had a lot of colors available so I took my time looking over them when I spotted the “Buy One Get One 50% off” tag. Score.
I decided on #15 Rose Petal and #40 Pink Plum. Both colors are fairly sheer (which is perfect for me!) but it is buildable and the texture reminds me of a moist latex cosmetic sponge, its very odd. Dream Bouncy Blush goes on feeling powdery and blends better than most cream blushes I have used and feels silky gliding on (I used my fingers to apply)
Rose Petal appears to be a pale pinky peach on my skin. There is the faintest appearance of shimmer in it which I didn’t realize until I swatched it. The color appears on my skin just as it does in the pot.
Pink Plum is a nice flush of pink. It isn’t bright, but it certainly isn’t soft. Again, there is the faintest amount of shimmer in this one as well. This goes on my skin a little darker than the color in the pot – but of the two, this one is my favorite!
Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes are available in the following colors:
05 Fresh Pink
10 Pink Frosting
15 Rose Petal
20 Peach Satin
30 Candy Coral
40 Pink Plum
45 Orchid Hush
50 Plum Wine
60 Coffee Cake
70 Hot Tamale
Next time I swing by Walgreens I will probably be picking up Pink Frosting and Fresh Pink as well! I love the natural flush of color you get with these blushes!
