There has been a slew of new products hitting drugstore shelves recently. From Revlon to L'oreal to Maybelline, it seems like every drugstore cosmetic brand is amping up their lines with inventive looking products. The one that caught my eye is the bouncy blush from Maybelline. I love cream blush, and although I don't really understand the purpose of these "bouncy" blushes, they are so pretty! I just had to try one and see what all the hype was about.

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Peach Satin



It is honestly one of the oddest products I've ever tried. It has the consistency of putty. I was expecting a sponge or some sort of foam underneath the product to give it that "bounce" but I don't believe that there is. The product itself provides the texture, not the packaging as I had previously thought. I hope this is making sense! It really is very diffcult to properly describe.



This shade in particular is more coral than peach. I love the glow that it gives. I think overall, these blushes are sheer. They don't give off a lot of pigment, they are much more of a natural looking flush. In fact, Peach Satin gives me that color I naturally get after a good workout. I like that! This will be beautiful in the Summer, when I wear nothing but cream products. If you are going to try one of these for yourself, I would definitely recommend going for one of the brighter shades, as I think the lighter colors won't show up at all.

I do recommend the Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes. They may seem a little gimmicky, but I can assure you that they are more reliable than that. I would purchase it again.

Next, I want to try the  Maybelline Tattoo cream eye shadow in the taupe color. Have you tried any of the new drugstore products?

  1. I have this in the same color and really like it as well! The consistency is so funny but I like it - I agree it gives off more of a glowy look than a pigmented blush - I have been wearing it to work every day - really like it!

    I have the maybelline color tattoos in bad to the bronze and taupe - LOVE both - they are very similar to Mac paint pots - you should definitely try them!

    Also - there seems to be more revlon lip butters in stock now - I picked up creme brulee and red velvet a couple of weeks ago.

    I want to try the illegal lenths mascara, I have heard good things!

    hope that helps!! :)

  10. I love cream blushes - but I like them to be very pigmented and I apply them sheerly (if that makes sense).

    The color you chose is gorgeous and very natural. Have you tried the Covergirl/Olay cream blushes? Those last so long on me :-) And I recently found the best brush to apply them with - the ELF studio stipple brush $3.
