After endlessly searching for this shade at numerous cvs, walgreens, rite aid & even ulta; I feared this may be DISCONTINUED as it wasn't even listed as a shade anymore. The official Maybelline site verifies this too; so sad as it was such a bright matte barbie pink that could be toned down for the perfect doll glow. Guess I'll have to look at my dollar stores & stock up as some reviewers recommended or pay ridiculous shipping costs on amazon for it..but its worth it.
UPDATE: Just purchased backups from BUYMEBEAUTY.COM for $5.50 each! Reliable, safe, fast & helpful site...u can find bunch of discontinued favs there (like my all time Maybelline dream mousse/instant age rewind perfector concealers) at discounted prices!

I have two of these in Peach Satin and Whipped Strawberries. I like both of the shades I have; Whipped Strawberries being quite a bright candy pink on my NW15 skin. I've tried a brush and fingers and prefer my fingers as I find it blends far better as the warmth from your fingers makes application easier. This does not look greasy on my dry skin and gives it a natural looking glow. I usually use these under powder blushes as I find they fade a bit if worn on their own. I don't think I'm going to need to buy this again, just because I use such little product that the tub will probably last a while, but if I do I'll be trying out different shades. I found this on eBay for $6, which I thought was a bargain because in NZ they're around $24. I do like the packaging but the glass makes it a bit bulky for carrying around.

This color didn't suit me. I didn't like the matte finish; this combined with the color made it look like I had pink chalk on my cheeks. I also didn't like the jar for hygiene reasons, although it does look cute. However it is easy to apply and blend.

I actually found this at my dollar store today! It was the only one left! I looove it! I definitely want to try the other shades. But as for this one, it is a really nice true bright pink. You only need a very little amount. I warm it up between my fingers and blend it onto my cheeks. It looks like a nice, healthy flush. LOVE it!

This is the perfect hot pink blush! Its smooth and easy to blend.

I'm not sure if the "Whipped Strawberries" shade is discontinued or not, but I purchased mine at the Dollar Tree. I'm a huge fan of the Dream Mousse eyeshadows, so I figured I'd try a blush. The color is a very vivid hot pink. A little bit goes a very, very long way which is good 'cause you definitely get your money's worth. I like the way its packaged - makes it easy to throw in your purse & apply on the go since you don't even need a brush. I definitely prefer this over powder blush!

I have Dream Mousse blush in many of the shades that are available. These are some beautiful blushes. The one in Whipped Strawberries is extra bright on me-- so I guess just I'll give it to someone else. I'll just wear Pink Frosting instead of this shade.

This product is fantastic! It is sooooo easy to blend and really is fool proof~gives your face an instant lift and vibrancy and the shade "whipped strawberries/no*30" is just gorgeous! i also have the mousse bronzer in Glistening Sun and love that too~I use this as a blush as well or for contouring.I would love to try more of these colors....i am so impressed with this formula i dont think i will go back to powder blush ever! I highly recommend this~!

I'm fairly new to the idea of cream/gel blushes and I really hadn't thought much about trying them until I found this blush. I actually found a bunch of these (along with the mousse eyeshadows) in my local Dollar Tree. Lucky me! I thought they looked pretty and I know Maybelline's products have really improved over the past few years, so I decided to give it a shot. For just $1, why not? OMGosh! I love it! I have dry skin, so cream/mousse blushes work really well on me. These are pigmented, but not too pigmented as long as you use a light hand. They are easy to apply with a brush or my fingers. They also work well as a base for a powder blush to make it last longer. This color is my second favorite out of the 5 colors I own. It is a beautiful healthy looking almost doll-pink. It has no shimmer, which i really like. This is definitely a staple item, but not one I absolutely couldn't live without. I would definitely repurchase if I ran out, but unfortunately this color has been discontinued. :( If you can find it, definitely look into it. It's really great. If pink isn't your thing, another shade might be more up your alley. 5 Lippies! :D

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 bought this product while on vacation bc i dropped my Nars orgasm and shattered it in a billion pieces. I used this blush before in pink frosting but that color was completely sold out. I saw the whipped strawberries and although skeptical of the barbie doll pink color decided to give it a fair shot. So glad i did. Thos color is amazing. The perfect pink blush that complemented my nc30 skin tone. Loved it.

Story time ;)
Once upon a time i was a timid, scared girl who was new to the world of make-up. I remember buying this from a discount store for very very cheap and just assumed it matched my skin tone (you may slap me for that).
I used it, then stopped one day and never went back to it.
Forward a few years, and i'm moving out of home. By this time i was using the MAC's and NARS of the make-up world, i figured i was pretty good. I found this in my cupboard barely used and decided to take it along with me as a 'just in case' type of thing.
One day, i lost my make-up bag. Rather - it got stolen. So, i went out to repurchase the staples and figured i could use this Whipped Strawberries mousse.
I have extremely pale (by choice!) NW15 skin, almost black brown eyes and long black hair. I swiped this over my cheeks and i literally looked like a doll. It looked goregeous! Not overpowering if you use a LIGHT hand: a sweet, 'PPP' candy pink that blended in like magic and ever since then this is what i have been using. It's got a homey feel to it and i can't give it up... the texture, the colour and the look just works for me yet looks relatively natural. This is my HG :)
I love this!!
The end xD
EDIT: As another person said, i am also quite fond of the glass container. I have even dropped it and its stood the test of time :P

Love this product -- I have it in this color and soft plum... I'm a cream blush/gel blush whore... this is by far my best. I even like it better than Stila convertible cream blush. I have dry skin so the mousse texture is better than the cream, which sometimes doesn't rub all the way. I will def buy this again, it's an HG for me.

I don't know why but this looks so so so unnatural on me when I put it on during the day. (I am not super fair either) No matter how little I put on it just does not look good. I have tried using my fingers, a brush and a sponge and it just does not blend well. I use this when I go out at night just to use it up and it looks ok. Overall it looks like a blotchy mess on my cheeks for everyday use. Stila's CC's work better for me(easy to blend, natural color)

I guess I'm unusual in that the glass container doesn't bother me. I actually like the little glass jar and pink top.
This blusher is fine. The soft, creamy consistency is perfect; it slides on very nicely, not leaving streaks or blotches. For this reason, it works well on my dry to combination skin, especially in the winter/fall seasons.
Although the Strawberries & Cream is no longer sold in the U.S. I ordered it online from a place in the UK and it came to $7.87.
Edited to add: Although I still love the consistency of all of these Dream Mousse blushes in their little glass jars with pink lids, I am not as crazy for Strawberries & Cream.
After ordering it special from Europe I realized that Pink Frosting, which I already had, was better, after all. If only Pink Frosting had none of those unnecessary flecks of glitter. Can't call it "shimmer;" .because that makes it sound whimsical when, in reality, the glitter cheapens the product and makes it seem like a Tinkerbelle or Bonne Belle product for a child.

It's a real candy type pink. Nice with pale lavender eyeshadow to do a pretty pastel look. Formula wise, it's hard to blend it fast enough but on the plus side the pigmentation is good. While the price is great, I probably wouldn't buy again because there are other blushes that are easier to work with to give a more natural look.

Too bright for my pale skin. I use it in minute amounts and blend it out to sheerness with mattifying primer under it to prevent it settling in my pores. Then I powder over it. With those modifications it is a fine blush for me. I use my fingers to apply it.
The glass jar with colored plastic cover is a problem in shade selection. You can't tell what the color is through the distorting glass and the plastic cannot represent the color accurately. The first Dream Mousse Bush I bought was too light to show up on me.
One warning: this does dry out unless the cap is screwed on tightly every time. I have had this for a while and I occasionally put moisturiser in it to revive the consistency. Gel moisturiser does NOT work; it becomes hard. At the rate I am using this product in teeny amounts daily, it will last me forever.

This blush is quite unique. Personally, my first experience with the product was a complete crash, I stored it in my makeup trunk and used mineral blushers. Oneday I got adventerous, I dipped my middlefinger into the pot and gently dabbed it on my cheeks, and blended with my pointer and middle finger. It looked amazing!! I absolutely love this color. I have reddish blonde hair, blue eyes, and fair (I mean fair) skin. It gave me this very natural, rosy, almost candy like appearance. Its so sweet and I love it.
I would highly recommend it, and if you have oily skin, don't fret! Don't automatically stash it away in your bag, put some primer or finishing dust on top of the blush so it stays longer.

can't believe this has been discontinued, i love this colour it's such a cute dolly pink, very pigmented so you need to take it easy with this one, i have this in peach satin as well but this one seems to last longer because the colours more intense & there's no sparkle just pure colour, mousse consistency is easy enough to blend
