I owned this blush in three shades—Cloud Wine, Coffee Cake, and Peach Satin. I loved the lightweight, mousse texture and how easily it glides onto the skin, and I'm certainly happy that it goes on sheer!
However, and I feel maybe it's because my skin is combo-oily, but this doesn't seem to be a buildable blush; it stays sheer regardless of how much I try to layer the color on. I've also had a similar issue with the Dream Matte Mousse Foundation in that this blush doesn't seem to dry and set; it transfers, and slides around during wear. I prefer the new Dream Bouncy formulas over their Dream Mousse blushes, because although they are equally sheer, they are buildable and have longer staying power in my experience. Not much longer, but the packaging is pretty slim, so if I have to reapply it's no problem, whereas the glass jar that Dream Mousse blushes come in is bulky—I keep those at home.
I think these are great to try, and I think those with drier skin types might actually appreciate the mousse formula better than the drier Dream Bouncy formula. But I'm moving on to the newer generation.

This is a great color if you feel the rest are too light, pink or plum. I have rosacea, so I don't need to look as if I'm blushing! Coffee cake is a bronzy peach and works well to tone down a ruddy complexion. Can also serve as a bronzer, imo. Great product. Very creamy but not greasy. Not long lasting. You need to re-touch after 3-4 hours.

I loved the colour - it is not a bronzer, but almost there (at least to me, NW20-25)... the colour is just right to give an astonishing healthy glow without looking tan..., it is waaay too shimmery, in fact it is almost frosty to me in daylight. I can't take that unless I'm going for an evening out. For some women that might be ok, But I prefer subtle shimmer.
It lasts good 3 hrs, on my mildly oily skin w/o powder.
A good product, by not for my taste. If they start making it matte, I sure will buy it, the texture is delicious and doesn't evidence pores. Pity.

I've never tried anything from the Mousse line and this was my first try with it. I love this blush! The color is great, not too orange or brown. I have fair skin and it's still great. It applys awesome, which is not what i expected. It sort of blends into a powder once on the skin and its not at all streaky. It also doesnt ruin or smudge foundation. I will for sure keep buying and try more colors!

This stuff made me look like a hot disco mess.
Initially I thought it would be a pretty shade on my NC45 skin, but once I got outside, it looked like I was about to hit the clubs. I gave it a lippie because...it would like nice if you actually WANTED to hit the clubs.

I want to try this blush as something easy for the summer. However on me its just a pinkish glittery mess.

Looking for a cream blush to counteract some of my too dry fdts., I saw this going for $2.99 at my local supermaket, and I thought, "what the heck."
I thought the color was a bit too "caramel" for my liking, but it was the only one left, and for the price, I thought I'd give it a try. I found out I can actually live with it.
I use it VERY SPARINGLY. Honestly. I gently pat my finger on it, smooth it on the apples of my cheeks, and work it outwards, towards my temples (I do this before I put on my setting powder, which is the colorless MUFE HD powder). Then, I dust setting powder all over my face. This prevents this blush from going oily ... oh, pardon me, I mean, "glowy," of course ... and makes it last all day.
I think the color would be better for summer. In winter, I prefer something a bit more on the cool side. Still, I don't dislike this. Especially, seeing how I paid such a low price for it. I'd give this a 3.5 rating.
I cannot understand why some people get so hysterical about pot containers. Don't you wash your hands before applying foundation, blush, concealer, etc.? If you do, there is not reason to fret about germs. I was told by a dermatologist that tubes can be just as unsanitary as anything else, because they "inhale" air (and the germs in it) when you release the pressure on them. And those germs stay trapped in the tube when you screw the cap back on. The only really "sanitary" containers, according to this dermatologist, are aluminum tubes. They don't "bounce back" like plastic tubes do. So relax, ladies. Pot containers are not going to kill you (especially if you wash your hands before dipping your fingers in; or if you use a Q-tip, or spatula).
And mousse can hardly come in any other form of container, if it wants to its mousse-like consistency.

Out of all the dream mousse blushes, this is the only color I really like. Coffee Cake is a nice peachy bronze color that really compliments my skintone (NC35-37). Application is a bit tricky; you have to dab it and build the color little by little so it doesn't look too cakey on top your foundation. If you just want a flush of color and you normally just wear powder and no foundation, then this blush might be good for you. But for me, I have to really take my time applying it. The other thing I don't like is the packaging; it's VERY unsanitary, especially if you have long nails. Oh and this blush doesn't stay on that long either even though my cheeks area are not as oily as my T-zone. Overall, nice product but I won't repurchase since I'm not one of those people who don't mind reapplying blush at mid-day.

I like this blush even though i hate cream blushes! it is very easy to blend and gives a peachy bronze (with sparkles) on my cheeks. I have olive skintone and it shows up on my skin. The lasting power is good and the range of colors they have is wide but i wish they drop the price a bit.

I applied this with my MAC 130 (great brush btw). I am NC42 and it did not really look like blush on me. It blend right in with my skin and just looked like glitter. I think i will use it as a highlighter or es base (not sure yet). It is not fair to give this product a bad review because the color didn't work for me. So I will say I love the texture although I would imagine it is not sanitary to apply with your fingers. The packaging is a bit bulky but nothing major. I would rebuy in another color since I do like the product.

Gorgeous bronze color!!
The dream mousse foundation is yucky but the dream mousse blush is GREAT!! It's really the color payoff that makes it so fab! The texture is strange and the packaging seems unsanitary but the color of this blush is so pretty!
Great for a beach day. Feels nice & light!

I love the mousse texture. It's addictive!! The color is very nice gives you good contour. I purchased other color cloud wine and rose petal, but I like coffe cake better.

This was my first blush. Now that I've tried others, I'd STILL come back to this one.
I used to have combination skin, 'normal' on the cheeks & this didn't break me out. It looks great on tan skin (a peachy bronze color).
The texture is soft & fluffy, but goes on smooth like a creamy powder. It's 'dry' so you don't have a wet feeling...and you have no drying time.
The product lasts about 10 hours, but is easy to touch up. The color is buildable but the first application is not sheer. Too much will end up too 'sparkly' but this does not have GLITTER. *I HATE GLITTER* even on eyes and ESPICALLY on the 'face.'
Overall, the price is inexpensive compared to other's and I can't think of anything I'd change about it. A real winner!

I went looking for soft plum and it was sold out so I decided to purchase coffee cake. The only reason I wanted a cream based blush was to help with the staying powder of my powder blush. I use MAC fun and games on a daily basis and by lunch it has completely disappeared. So I tried the dream mousse as soon as I got home and I really am not liking all the glitter. I look like a teenager and for a 31 year old woman, that would not look professional at work. I can barely see any color on my cheeks, just glitter. I don't know what I'll do with this blush. Maybe I'll try to use it as a base for my eyeshadow. I'll figure something out.

It has become my summer quest to find pretty and natural looking bronzers for my fair, N4/NW20 skin since I try to avoid tanning beds and the sun at all costs. Even though this is classified as a blush and not a bronzer, it still gives me a pretty, peachy-bronze glow that looks very natural. I really like this formula for whenever I'm using tinted moisturizer (usually Neutrogena's Healthy Skin Enhancer) and have found that it tends to apply more smoothly over liquid rather than powder foundations. It also has just the right amount of shimmer and stays pretty well on my normal/combo sensitive skin. Plus, the little jar is just so darn cute! If I ever run out, I would possibly repurchase, but most likely wouldn't just since I always like to try new and different products.

I figured out that the Dream Mousse blushes look the best with the Dream Matte foundation, and I have pretty much all the colors, but this one is my favorite. It was the last shade I purchased because from the outside, it doesn't look that different from the bronzer shades, which I already had. However, it's very different from the bronzers, not nearly as much sparkle, and more of a burnt peachy color, LOVE IT! This will work for both fair and darker skins, it's a must have shade!

love using this blush on a daily basis. it makes my sometimes sallow asian skin look glowly and healthy. :] it is a sorta strange color to be a blush though...imo it is a sorta coppery color...hard to describe...but it makes my skin glow and that makes me happy. it is shimmery but not so much that it looks gaudy. as long as i blend it well it looks very natural and pretty. i just wish it was longer lasting and didn't fade that quickly. the packaging is the best. :] i love the cute little pot. i also got it for very cheap. ulta always has those bogof sales and coupons. this blush is great for everyday wear. :]

I bought this tonight 75% off, so it was only $1.72. That being the reason I will repurchase [I'm going back for a pink color] and said it was dirt cheap. I bought this to use as a bronzer, but I'm slightly disappointed because I was hoping for more color rather than shimmer. And there is A LOT of shimmer, even inside, so I can only imagine what it must look like in sunlight. The ease of blending is alright, but the texture is nice.

I love this color! It looked the most natural out of the selection. When I put this on, it was easy to spread and even out. After I went into the sun, ew ew ew shimmer! I had no idea it would be shimmery, it takes all of the natural out of it. I would never buy this again.

I'm sorry but this is not an everyday blush. I have MAC NC45 skin and I thought this would be nice on my skin after seeing a makeover in a magazine with a woman who had similar skin tone. Wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong. This is more like an irredescent shimmer cream, not a blush. I'm giving it two lippies because it may be nice for a night out at the club or even as an eyeshadow. For a nice glow on a day to day basis, this is not something to waste your money on.
