So in New York one of my definite ‘must buys’ was this Dream Bouncy Blush from Maybelline. I think I’ve been having a bit of a Maybelline moment as there were a few things on my shopping list from the brand that I really wanted to pick up – this being number one on the list.
I chose shade 05 ‘Fresh Pink’ and I love it – it is pretty much as described, a light pink which thanks to the creamy texture leaves a nice glow. The texture of these things is really hard to describe, like an inflated cream? It ‘deflates’ or dents on a fairly gentle touch. It feels quite mouldable.
The light creamy blush is easy to build up if you want a stronger colour, but as I’m fairly pale at the moment a gentle wash of colour was plenty for me. I find it easiest to use my fingers for this blush. I have been wearing this on my cheeks with my current favourite eye look which is flicked liquid liner.
I really hope that these gorgeous blushers will make it across the pond at some point, although I’m hearing mixed news as to if they are or not… If not then may be emergency trip across the pond to stock up on more. Might be a bit too much for a blusher, but seriously – these are gorgeous. Please Maybelline, bring them to the UK!
