I saw a review of this on Beauty Broadcast vlog recently and was intrigued. I have large pores and somewhat oily skin that doesn't usually take too kindly to cream blushes. However, as I age and my skin is changing, I've wanted to find one that works for me. I bought this at WalMart in Rose Petal color. I'm an NC-15 so blush can quickly overpower my whole face. This is probably my new favorite blush of any kind. I love the texture, I love how easy it is to put on, I love the buildability of this product and the fact that it is NATURAL not sparkly. I don't do sparkles. It seems to last fairly well throughout the day and just gives a nice subtle, flesh-toned glow to my skin. I will definitely buy this again.
Love these. I think I bought all of them except the brown looking one. These are easy to blend and give a really pretty glowy color to my cheeks. Hot Tamale looks scary in the pan but look pretty when applied. I use a 180 brush to apply, I don't use my fingers. These are great layered under a powder blush to give it more staying power. This is a winner from Maybelline.
MEH. the texture was super fun and nothing i've ever seen before, kind of felt like a marshmallow or something - and i really wanted to like it, seeing as it's a budget product and there were some really nice glowy but NOT SPARKLY shades (a bit rare in the drugstores nowadays)... while it's okay it has the same problem that the maybelline mousse blushes had - feels nice going on, but sheer and doesn't last. lasts a bit longer with a primer underneath, but i think i'll just stick with my NARS and bobbi brown blushes for my staples. it's an okay product - good for younger girls who are starting out in makeup and want some fresh shades for a few bucks, as it's pretty mild in pigmentation and youthful.
I've seen a lot of reviews of this product on YouTube and at this point I have to disagree with most of them. Most gurus say that they're too sheer and the consistency is too strange, but I find them to be perfect pigmentation and are soooo interesting in texture. For my NC25 skintone, the pigmentation is great. They're also very easy to blend and build up. I only have two colors (Rose Petal and Peach Satin (I think??)) and they're fantastic. Definitely underrated in my opinion.
I bought this in Hot Tamale. I have no complaints! The color is bright and lovely on my skin but not over the top like it looks in the pan. Application smooth and easy to blend. It lasted throughout my work day without fading.
Will be purchasing a few more colors!
Orchid Hush has almost zero pigmentation (and I'm very pale) but Hot Tamale is nice. It reminds me of Tarte Natural cheek stain or old school Benetint - a dark rosy flush that looks healthy and natural with a light hand. The "bounce" is a cute concept, best applied with fingers, and I like the lack of glitter (why I stayed away from the mousse blush), but I'm not that tempted to try any other colors.
I actually really like this blush, contrary to other reviewers! I purchased Orchid Hush and Candy Coral. Let me say, Orchid Hush you definitely have to use a bit more. I like to use just my pointer and middle finger to apply and find it's perfect. Candy Coral, wow pigmentation. Really bright, and if you're fair skinned be careful, you can easily put too much on. The texture is neat, I have yet to apply them with a brush but I haven't seen foundation issue when I apply them with my fingers, I use Photo Ready. I plan on purchasing the plum color next!
Perhaps the only blushes I will ever use. What I like about these blushes is the sheer pigmentation - If you like super-pigmented blushes, this might not be for you. However, I do not like a whole lot of pink on my cheeks, if any at all, so I like a very sheer amount of product. I have this in Rose Petal and it a nice light rosy shade.
The blush feels interesting... at first it can be bouncy and a bit squishy, but after a while it can melt into a cream and cease bouncing. Lol.
I like this product mostly because it has a way of melting into the skin in a way powder blushes just can't (which is why this looks WAY more natural than powder!) If you get the right shade, it can look like a natural flush of color more than any other blush I've tried! I love these for a sheer natural look. Will def. repurchase!
Once I got past the very cheezy name, I picked this up in one of the coral shades. I applied it with my fingers and was pleasantly surprised. The texture isn't too creamy...feels like a mousse foundation.
I have light skin so the pigment was just fine. I liked that it didn't sink into my pours nor did it absorb into my skin.
For those of you gals who tan, I would be concerned that it could have too little pigment to give you much impact.
Overall, this is a nice little product to keep in your purse for whenever you need a little "pick-me-up."
I was intrigued by the concept of this blush, plus they all look so cute, so I decided to try a neutral shade (Coffee Cake) that I don't already have in my collection. This blush is really easy to apply, which I like because I don't have to dirty a brush. The colour payoff is very sheer, I need about 4 swipes to see some colour on my cheeks. It also doesn't last very long, maybe a few hours at best. I love the concept of this blush and how easy it is to use, but I don't think I'd buy again unless they change the formula and make them more pigmented.
