I was very diappointed with this blush, both the colour and the texture. Wasn't sure if I should apply with my fingers or a brush, but either way I can barely see it on my cheeks. When I try to use the product on my fingertips to apply it just kind of mushes around in the packaging and doesn't really go on my finger. I would not purchase this type of blush again, would stick with powder blush.
EDIT March 2013 - Still like this blush -- tried other brands and still my favorite. Once you get over the weird texture and odd application techniques its a wonderful product. I use a blush brush now and it applies fluidly.
The texture is fun. It's also a little weird and I keep wanting to play with it.
At first, I didn't think this color was very pigmented (I'd also bought Pink Plum). The trick with these bouncy blushes is it seems to take a few uses before their true colors shine.
This color looks nice in the packaging, but I was initially disappointed with the color payout. Since I paid 8 bucks for it, I forced myself to play around with it. For some reason, these blushes appear to have an un-pigmented film over the top, because after the first 4-5 days I really started to pick up more color (in the beginning it was hardly noticeable and I'd checked this color off my list).
Now I get more of a color payout, since I played around with the consistency and also smashed it a bit with my finger. This color is a soft coral peach, and it is build-able. I'd say now, the color is comparable to the color payout from Pink Plum. I also only use my finger and blend it on my cheeks. I had NO luck using a blush brush. I do like the creaminess of these blushes, and the hint of shimmer.
If at first you don't see results, just keep playing with it. You'll find your natural groove when applying it. Don't be nervous, just get your finger in it and smash it down (helps with picking up pigment). After about a week and a half of use, I can now say I'm happy with the color payout and the look.
Color: light peachy pink
Texture: clay-like, creamy and squishy
Wear Time: 4-5 hours
Pigmentation: sheer, yet buildable. I could wear this as a natural flush since my skin is fair. I'm NW15-20 for reference
Price: 6-7 dollars
I recommend this for those with very fair skin. However, the brighter, deeper colors would be better purchases and much more versatile.
I loved the colour of this blush in the package. It looked like the perfect pink for fair skin. Sadly, there were no testers in the Target I was in. This product has no pigment whatsoever. It doesn't show up AT ALL and I am very pale. I can't even use it as a highlight because it's matte. Booh! Don't waste your money.
Maybe some of the other colours actually have pigment and show up? The "bouncy" texture is cool & unique, but seriously, the "rose petal" is a complete & utter fail. continued >>
Don't buy this blush if you are medium to dark skintone because it doesn't show up :( unless you want to pack on layers and layers. This is a really pretty colour and I do like the texture but it just doesn't work for my skintone.
I can't ever tell if I like this blush or if I don't...I really like the formula of it, but it is so sheer that I'm hard pressed to find the color on my face after I've applied it.
I have not tried any of the other blushes in the Dream Bouncy line, so maybe it is just this particular blush, but stay away from it because it honestly doesn't do anything.
I bought this blush a couple of months ago, but I just got around to trying it today. I'm disappointed because I tried applying it both with my fingers and a blush brush and nothing showed up on my cheeks! Back to the store it goes. I guess I will just stick with my usual CoverGirl blush in Rose Silk.
I like it. I like it a lot. Being one of the fairest people to have walked the earth, it's a good choice. This color is pretty light and airy. I only need a tiny bit for it to light up my cheeks. Cool texture too. (:
I was drawn to the product by its intriguing name. The texture is a mousse-like cream blush. The color selection is great, ranging from brights to natural hues. Now that I've tried this product I'm severely disappointed. The pigmentation is mediocre, barely anything shows up. For those who like minimal makeup or are new, then get this. If not, then you're just wasting your cash in my opinion.
I love trying new products, particularly when they are reasonably priced. While the colour of this blush is perfect, the useability of this blush leaves much to be desired. It is awkward to use, difficult to apply, quickly gets used up and leaves the compact very messy. I either apply not enough, or way too much. Parent company L'Oreal's Magic Smooth Souffle is more expensive, but easier to use, packs a lot more product in its case and is way neater.
