Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in "Plum Wine" (Review & Swatch)
Where to buy: any drugstore
My thoughts on the new Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in the shade "Plum Wine"!
The packaging of these blushes are made out of plastic, which I'm not really a big fan of. The product almost feels a little cheap to me. The product inside is dome-shaped. The consistency and texture of these blushes are quite interesting. When you touch the blush with your finger it dips down similar to memory foam or a dense sponge cake. Although the color of these blushes look pigmented in the pan, the application of them is so-so. The wear on these blushes aren't as long as I was expecting. Unless I really pack it on or top it off with a powder blush, it only lasts for a few hours.
I purchased these blushes in two shade (I will have pictures and swatches of the other one in another blog post which I will link to later on!). The reason why I chose to pick up "Plum Rose" is because it is one of the darker ones. It is a deep plum-rose color, which goes on well for me since I have light skin. I think it would work for fair-light skin tones, possibly medium skin tones also. I'm not sure if this shade would work well with dark skin tones since the pigmentation isn't excellent - maybe if you use a really heavy hand with it.
My recommendation is to with a powder blush with these cream blushes. I find that it lasted much longer when I did. I think this particular shade is pretty, and it works decently with my light skin tone. I don't really reach for it often though.
Have you tried any of these Dream Bouncy Blushes? What are your thoughts on them? :)
