I got this after MakeupbyTiffany mentioned it in a video where she boasted colors like Nars Madly and this one to have just enough subtle color to warm up the complexion in the winter months. After Candy Coral was an epic fail (ZERO pigmentation) I hesitated with this one, but it turned out to be somewhat worthwhile. Its a matte, peachy nude blusher with a satin finish. I don't care for the 'bouncy' effect as my ELF small stipple touches it not my fingers. Pigmentation can again be better but atleast 3 layers/swipes gets good payoff on my light NC20 skin; but the sheerness of this blush is why its not getting more lippies from me. The multiple layering for my liking effect ends up 'moving' my foundation underneath. Its just too much effort to complete the look for a basic color. I wont repurhcase.

I absolutely love all the Dream Bouncy Blushes! They are perfect for my dry skin, go on super creamy and last for hours. The color selection is fabulous as well. Coffee cake, Rose Petal and Candy Coral are my favorites. I find the packaging to be quite cute too. And I love how tiny they are, but they last for ages when applied with my stippling brush. Loveeee.

First off the color payoff isnt amazing but is good if you want a natural look to the face. I like the bouncy part but after using it for a while the bouncy part popped and it was too messy to use. The price is average for drugstore I brought mine for 8 bucks. I would probably try the other colors if they werent as expensive. If you want a drugstore cream blush nyx makes great ones and I tend to reach for those more often.

I love it so much, it's easy to work with and super blend able. This shade in particular would show up very well on darker skin tones, it shows up as a shimmer but in lighter skin it will come as light peachy nude LOVE IT!

I was not expecting the texture of this to be so much fun! Also, I love the color on my NC35 skin! Unfortunately, it was completely gone two hours after applying. And I hadn't even ventured outside of my house, so it wasn't because it was hot or humid out. Twas quite a letdown.

My cool fair skin can easily look pink or ruddy so I was surprised when this blush left me looking RADIANT instead of a flushed mess! this product has helped me get over my fear of blush. It's just a perfect and classic color - in my opinion it just has a vintage look about it. The only downside is the weird consistency that can make it awkward to apply. It's bizarre and squishy, but I have just been using my fingers to apply it and it seems to be working fine. It's just odd but personally I can overlook the awkward application for the beautiful color it gives me.

The color coffee cake is perfect for my fair skinned ladies out there. I was using smashboxes blush rush in I believe masterpiece and had loved the color but wanted a cream blush. This is a great replacement and when i'm going for the natural look it looks amazing and very similar to the smashbox though that one is a powder. I'm going to rebuy this if i ever run out! I have been using it everyday for the last 3 months and theres barely a dent in it. Oh and make sure you just apply 1 to 2 dots if your fair.

This is a tricky blush to use. I like it, don't get me wrong, but Coffee cake is simply a very tricky color- it is somewhere in the middle of rose and bronze. It is beautiful when you swatch it and it is initially a great color. For me, the blush reacts to different foundations I use. It is pretty good with most matte, sheer liquid foundations, but when I used a mineral foundation or a full-coverage foundation, Coffee Cake turned into an odd brown color. Also, it turns into a different color with darker foundations. In cold weather, this blush refuses to work, but in the summer, it basically becomes a thing of putty. It does have great staying power and doesn't rub off. It's hard to apply, which isn't great; most of the time, you simply smudge your existing foundation. "Dream Bouncy" blush is a weird idea; I wouldn't repurchase.

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. One of my favorites of the Bouncy blushes; Coffee Cake is a gorgeous nude that isn't to bronze or brown and makes you glow. It looks fabulous with most eye looks as well!

Coffee Cake is a gorgeous bronzed rose color on my fair skin. Gorgeous! It looks like it would be brown and muddy but it's not. When applied to skin the beautiful rose color comes out. LOVE! It is a cream blush dupe for NARS Lovejoy. I have loved NARS Lovejoy for years, but since it is a powder blush and I am getting older (read: fine lines don't work with powders anymore), I have switched to cream blushes for a moister, more luminous and forgiving finish on my skin. I have missed my Lovejoy so much .....there has never been another color blush like Lovejoy. But now I have it back in cream form in Coffee Cake! yay! I am buying 5 more for backup, just in case!
