I bought two or three of these blushes because the colors looked great & I am always on the look-out for nice creme type blushes (it seems harder to find creme blushes that are nice than powder ones). I really did not like these. I get it that they are supposed to be "sheer," but come on, when the pink frosting color doesn't show up at all on a pale girl like me, you obviously have no pigmentation in your product - just gunk. Thick, waxy, pore-clogging gunk. Using a brush with this proved nearly impossible without wreaking the brush, making fingers the obvious applicator. After just a few uses, the product looks like a gross, sliding pile of goop, kind of like the ripples of liquid magma from a volcano. It's pretty obviously NOT made from anything you should want to put on your skin. Add that to the lack of coloration, and I ended up throwing all mine away after just a few weeks. I will stick to my 100 Percent Pure creme blush sticks. They are all natural/vegetarian, have no animal testing, and have a really pretty color payoff.

While the packaging is pretty awful for this blush, it's such a pretty color! I wanted a true pink blush to wear some days unlike my Nars blush, which has gold shimmer in it. This is a really pretty color but I think it's such a pain to put on. I'm not a cream blush fan for the most part because I hate applying it with my fingers, but what can I say, it was kind of an impulse buy. However, I've done much worse in the blush department. (Milani, I'm looking at you!)

If you are really fair, this is the perfect pink for you! It's a blue-toned pink, and that's my fav. I use a small brush to apply instead of using my fingers. I found that using a brush doesn't knock off my foundation & powder.
The packaging could be better (minus one lippie). It's a little hard to open. My son poked his finger down in it, but I scraped it back together. I want to try the other colors!

I have a love/hate thing going with this blush. The texture is just bizarre; I can only describe it as mushy. As a result, it's a challenge to get the right amount of product on my fingertips: I either end up with too little or way too much. When first applied, this shade is a scary 80's-bright pink.
Now for the love: Once blended out, it becomes a very wearable, natural pop of color. It doesn't seem to last though, wearing off after a few hours.
Overall, the wierd texture keeps me from reaching for this blush very often.

i got the dream bouncy blush in pink frosting and i liked it alot! it isnt really pigmented so i would stick to a brighter color like pink frosting. it is a creamy blush. it is kinda hard to blend but it does fade into a natural looking color and lasts all day! though it isnt really that cheap. i got mine for $7 and i think it is exspensive! i think it should be like $4 instead because i thought it would be bigger first of all and its pretty small. and there isnt much product in there. but its totally worth it because of the bounciness! i wouldnt recommend this product for darker skin though.

I love Bouncy Blush as it is (buildable color, easy to apply, long lasting), but this color kicks a$$. As I emerge from my new mom coma, I needed something to perk up my tired cheeks - as soon as I put this on, visitors were telling me that I looked so much "healthier" than when I was in the hospital - more back to my "normal self." Excellent product and color!

I have to admit, I'm a little surprised by all the negativity surrounding these blushes. I got mine after hearing all the hype, and I picked it up in Pink Frosting. I don't like my blush to be super dark, but I don't want it to be so light it's invisible. That's why I thought this creamy, frosting colored pink would be perfect. It can be a little hard to blend on the skin, so be careful not to use too much product at once. Also, don't dig your fingers into it, as you could loosen the product from the container and cause it to fall out. (I know I've heard about multiple people having that problem, although I have yet to run into it) The blush really sits on the skin and doesn't fade easily. It lasts all day and gives a gorgeous flush that hasn't been replicated by other blushes. My advice is to be careful and not use a heavy hand while applying. People say that these blushes aren't pigmented enough, which shocks me. I have to be careful with mine because it's so pigmented! Maybe Pink Frosting is just a really good color? Regardless, I think these blushes are worth a shot if you're tired of powder and want to try something new.

LOVE this blush and color. It is so creamy and easy to blend. You only need a little and it goes a long way. Instead of using my brush I actually like to use my finger with this product to apply, that way I dont apply to much. Because it is a cream blush I found it easy to accidently apply to much! there such a wide range of colors I love these they are fantastic.

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. Pink Frosting is a gorgeous deeper pink shade. Very rosey!

I have no willpower! I've wanted this blush ever since I saw it--the only thing my blush stash lacked was something "bouncy." I tried to find it on sale, but finally I just caved and bought it anyway. I got it at Walmart, and the choice of shades was sadly small. Since I tend to wear more pink/red/berry toned lipstick, I figured Pink Frosting would do nicely--it's vibrant but not in-your-face. And since I've been wearing bolder lipstick shades lately, I was actually ready to use a more subdued blush than usual.
I have to say it's a nice, fairly well-behaved little blush. The color is perfect for a natural flush, and the texture is pretty cool. I didn't have any serious issues with application, although it's a little trickier than regular cream blush. Lasting power appears to be average, depending on your skin type. So overall I'm happy with this and will use it, despite the ridiculous price ($6.44 for 5.6 grams).
Now for the dirty. First of all, Maybelline tests on animals, so in general I try not to buy their products. Second, I looked up the ingredients to Dream Bouncy Blush (which for some reason are not on the package), and it turns out the substance is a cocktail of potentially toxic substances, including talc, mineral oil, copolymers, and aluminum. I don't think this one blush is going to kill me, but I should definitely be more vigilant about what's in my cosmetics in general.
The verdict: You should really only buy this if you absolutely can't resist the idea of a new blush texture. There are safer, cheaper, better choices out there.
