I have purchased probably 4 or 5 of these blushes now, and I really need to stop listening to beauty Vloggers who keep getting these free in order to promote them. They just don't work on me! I have fair-to-medium skin, which you would think is not that hard to work with, but none of these blushes show up on me more than a slight flush. I have purchased two different pink shades, the peachy shade, and now this one, which looked darker than most of the rest, and it STILL produces nothing more than a faint flush of color. That's great if that's what you want - but I'm approaching middle-age and I'm anemic and I look like death without a good amount of color on my cheeks. And these products simply do not have the pigmentation to deliver. Add to that the weird texture and application of this stuff, and I say save your money and get a good blush. This stuff feels like you are rubbing your finger on one of those rubbery toys that babies teethe on. And if you rub on it enough, the product wrinkles up and/or balls. Gross. I'm a fan of 100% Pure blushes and after trying these again, I can see why I made the switch to begin with. Sure, a 100% Pure blush is probably 2-3 times the price, but they are natural and fruit pigmented and don't feel like rubber, are cruelty-free, smell good (like fruit, but faintly), aren't full of chemicals, and actually show up on your skin! Add to that, mine have lasted well over a year and you now have a product that's worth the money. This stuff is just junk.

My favorite blush in the Maybelline dream bouncy blush collection! On my cheeks it is not too dark, which I appreciate because I have very fair skin and I was a little worried. I'm so excited to wear this year for thanksgiving! Only con: it's hard at first to apply the blush. I blend it with my fingers and also use a stippling brush. Overall, I'm seriously dying over this perfect fall blush!

I bought this blush to wear as a lipstick. I apply it with a lipbrush and it acts as a lip stain. Over it I apply a bit of Burt's Bees shimmer lip gloss in Rhubarb. Works well when I want a darker lip color which is also somewhat transparent. I wouldn't wear this color as blush since it's quite dark and I have very fair skin but as a lipstick it works great. The packaging is somewhat strange at first with the bouncy surface but you get used to it. Price varies where I live but averages about $7.00. I would buy again.

I love this blush!! The color is beautiful and its a fun blush to touch! I like that it can be a light color or you can build it to a more richer color! It is a good blush to work with and no worries of powder!

This is a really unique textured blush. When you first press down, you won't get much pigment but this is buildable. I think it's best applied with a Real Techniques stipple brush or your fingers. The color will look beautiful for fall/winter - like you just came in from outside in the cold!

I have bought some high end blushes and regret it. This blysh is very unique in texture and majes a dent when you press down it. I have naturally tan skin so this wine color really compliments me. I thought it showed up on my cheeks quite well.. i just do not like the strange texture and when i make a dent in it. I cant really use a blush plus its tiny. Im not sure how long it will last.

i had grabbed this when i was experimenting with new looks, i thought was a powder blush but when i got home i found out it was a creme like blush. I'm not a fan of anything creme so i was a bit bummed but decided to try anyway. It was a nice color but i couldnt get it to show up on my cheeks, i dont know if i was applying it wrong but it just wouldnt show up at all!

Okay at first I didn't realize what kind of texture this was. Maybe I should have read the packaging. After I tried it I got over the creamy bouncy texture, I loved it so much. The Blush blends in perfectly and gives a nice color to the skin. I will definitely but it again. Good product and it lasts all day.

Every time I walked down the make up isle this particular color stood out to me. I kept passing it up in part because of price and because I do not wear blush of any kind. I kept thinking " that would be a great eyeshadow" weird, I know. I went shopping with my daughter one day and told her that I was thinking of using it as eyeshadow. She didn't flinch so I figured my thought must not be too strange. So I bought it knowing if I didn't like it I'd pass it along to her to experiment with. I've been wearing it for several days and I really like it. I'm not one for heavy eye makeup so it's perfect for me as an everyday ES. You can apply as little or as much as you want. I've been applying it very lightly, it looks like a tint or "stain". Anyhow its actually a pretty color with my brown eyes. I'd probably buy it again but I don't think I'll run out anytime soon.

This product alerted me to a developing problem in my personality--- I have become OBSESSED with colour. From the moment I first saw this in the store, I was so enamoured by the rich colour, the surprising texture, and how versatile the consistency was that I honestly went a little crazy on google later that night. I couldn't buy it immediately because my mom was there and I didn't want her thinking I was spending money on unnecessary things (I'm recently out of school). But that evening I spent waaay too much time googling reviews, swatches, and pictures, pictures, pictures. I'm not kidding, I dragged a picture of this freaking blush onto my desktop because the rich pigment was so weirdly exciting to me!
ANYWAYS, here are the facts: it's highly buildable; you can have it go on very sheer like a little berry kiss, or load up and look like a doll from the Nutcracker (in a good way!). The texture is springy and bouncy like a little pat of Play-Doh, and pretty fun to touch.
The only problem is that it's not super hygienic. I've been using it for a few months now, and even though I wash my hands before I use it, it's starting to look a little grubby. Maybe an alcohol swab could clean it up.

However, I personally think you can't go wrong with these cream blushes. To me, powder blush looks and feels like an old lady's thing. It looks cakey, feels cakey, and will never achieve the dewey fresh vibrancy of a cheek stain or cream blush. If you're new to cream blushes, I highly recommend this one. The colour will make your heart beat faster when you see it on yourself!
