well i really loved the color. well this product sucks sucks sucks. where did the color go? the package is hard to open and you have to put a lot on to get a little of color. if you apply it with a brush, which defeats the whole bouncy sponge idea, then you have some color. it dries to a matte finish. the color is natural. but but but where is the color????? do not bother. it is funky as it is a spongy blush but a little icky to touch actually. kind of like a harder version of ghost buster goo. they get an A for effort.
This blush line has great coloration, and a lot of variety. I love my blush, although it can be a bit sticky and have poor payout. Other than that, it's a good blush for people who enjoy bright colors, and are patient enough to pull the tacky-texture out of their blush brush.
This stuff is almost perfect. The color is super natural and pretty on my fair freckly skin. The only issue is that it takes a little more time to apply, since you're dabbing your finger in the pot, then dabbing your finger on your cheeks. It takes a few repeated dabbings to actually get a decent amount of colour. But for someone like me who tends to overdo it on the blush anyhow, this is pretty much perfect. I actually think I will repurchase this when I run out, which says a lot because I love to try new products. Plus, it is kind of fun squishing the bouncy texture of this blush!!
I was on this coral kick a year back and thought this would be a nice addition to my collection....I was wrong. I think on lighter skin tone this would show up better. I had to swipe a lot and dig to get this color to show up on my cheeks. The color is a light pretty peachy pink with a slight sheen dries to a powder like finish. Very nice product but I am not willing to work so hard to get the pay off I want. I am NC42 for reference.
Where is this stuff???? Like, no really where is it? Good job Maybelline on the renovational spongy texture, dome shape, good riddance on useless mirrors and brushes in the packaging but did y'all forget to add the pigment in the process??!!
This equals to = zilch on my NC25 skin! Its worse than their Fit me blushes. This shouldn't even sell as a highlight, such poor poor color pay off. That swatch you see on image 2 here, you see the indent on that pretty dome next to,it yea that was probably from a one time use to get you that swatch. If you plan on using up $8 worth of blush in 3 applications then by all means you shall notice ''some'' effect on your cheeks.
MUA won't let me give this a 0; and sadly that is what its deserving even with the creative new design. DS are just full of pretty coral/nude/peach matte & shimmer shades for same price point, this isn't fair to us consumers. Please don't waste your $.
This blush turned out to be a cheer-me-up-on-a-tough-day surprise for me! Recently I was traveling, and my MAC Pinch O Peach did a nose dive off a sink and spattered all over the bathroom floor in my hotel room. I was running out the door, late, in a rainstorm, and I really, REALLY needed some blush on me. I ran into a nearby CVS and grabbed a little round container of this blush because it was the first thing I saw, and it was on sale. When I got in the car and touched it so I could smear it on my face, my first instinct was to pull-back as though I'd touched something slimy. I'd expected this to be a basic, crumbly powder blush, but this feels so bizarre! It's like a little ball of dough that you can roll up and reshape and then press flat. I just had to play with it a little. Makeup can get pretty dull, so I think it's great that this is so entertaining! Candy coral is a lovely glowing peachy color that really illuminates my face, as long as I put a lot on. It's probably perfect on very fair skin. Later on the plane ride home I tried to apply this blush with a sponge, and it made a mess all over my face. It crumbled and it made my foundation crumble, and I had to reapply everything with my fingers to look presentable again. I don't like sticking my fingers in makeup, especially a blush that seems to absorb whatever is on those fingers, however, one of these days I'll try this formula in a darker color and apply it with a brush. The "bouncy" idea is very cute, but not very practical for my needs. It is an adorable idea for makeup for very young girls.
The colour of this blush is what caught my eye at the drugstore. It was so bright and coral...I loved it! I thought twice about it before I walked to the counter and I should have let that be my sign to not buy it because it was a total waste of $7. The "bouncy" is interesting and fun to play with but after digging my fingers into it for 5 minutes I realized what a great home for germs it must be. It didn't really "bounce" - it just moved around in the pan and got all flat. The pigmentation is this is REALLY sheer and not buildable whatsoever. I applied it with my fingers and could barely see it on my face. I tried to add another later and it just looked like a complete mess. The packaging is cheap and for $7 this was a complete waste of my time and money. I will not repurchase, do not recommend it and will likely be throwing it straight into the garbage next time I'm in my makeup room. So disappointing!
See my review for the Dream Bouncy Blush (all colors) for my general view on these. I want to specifically describe the color for this particular review. Candy Coral was the first one I got because it was the closest shade to NARS Orgasm in my opinion. I generally go for that when first trying a blush because it is a foolproof color. This is exactly that minus the gold shimmer - a gorgeous peachy pink. It makes you glow and would work on anyone!
I have to admit when I first tried it, I wasn't sure how to apply it...I wasn't fond of it and it sat in my 'dud bin' for a while. I recently picked it up again and applied it differently. Using my finger tip to pat the color onto my cheekbone, and then patting around in a circle to blend it into the skin. There is much more color payoff, I actually have to be careful and check my cheeks in the window before leaving the house because a few times it was wayyy too bright in natural light. The color makes me glow, I look healthy and younger. The only reason I would not purchase again is because for $7 I can find better blushes, and it's not really a cream...more like dry powder stuck together with gum adhesive. Also, the packaging feels and looks very cheap. My next purchase will be Mac's Cremeblend Blush in Something Special instead..
I may be one of the few but I love this product. It is easy to apply and is a bright vibrant peachy coral (very in this season) on my super fair skin. I had a much better experience with this compared to the Revlon photoready cream blushes. This looks amazing paired with the Revlon tutti frutti lip butter.
