is Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes available in 10 shades
that promise a natural yet buildable flush of colour due to it's revolutionary gel formula.
It it aims to apply like a cream blush and dry to a powder finish... intriguing non?
As mentioned these are not readily available in the UK so I bought a few from eBay,
when they arrived I was a little shocked by how small and flimsy they feel.
These are not well packaged and feel a little cheap to me.
I also have little faith that the compact would survive a drop or three
but as always I shall not judge the product on it's encasing but on how it preforms.
Hot Tamale is a bright red shade in pan form
and even in the pan you can see the bright blue undertone.
When applied it is less intense and borders on the coral side of red.
I bought Hot Tamale on a whim as I never use red tones
and I thought it would be nice to switch it up a little.
This shade should show up on most skin tones
as it is slightly more pigmented than its sister shade Coffee Cake.
The formula of these takes a little getting used to at first.
Initially I did not realise these are sheer blushes that you can build if you so wish
so I was digging away and have all but ruined my Coffee Cake blush by doing so.
These have a sponge like feeling and do bounce back somewhat if you prod with your finger.
They apply best once warmed so do pat it with your fingertips before applying.
I don't really feel like these do have a gel sensation they feel more like a harder cream blush
but once applied they do live up to the powder aspect.
Pigmentation wise these are not great unless build up but they are meant to be sheer so that explains that!
You could also use these as a base to apply a powder blush on top off to give more colour intensiveness.
In terms of wear they wore a little shy of 8 hours so fairly average but they do feel light weight on the skin,
wear comfortably and would be a great product for the warmer weather.
Round Up - A hard cream blush that applies sheer and dries to a powder finish.
Best For - A light flush of colour, would be a great addition for the warmer weather.
Pigmentation - (6/10) Each shade is sheer so they are not meant to be pigmented.
