I have a friend who raved about this product for a while, so I finally decided to give it a try. I love the shimmer it adds to your cheek when it is first applied. That being said, this shimmer only lasts for a few hours. The glitter is very easily rubbed off and doesn't even last anywhere near the end of the day. The texture is light and airy like its said to be, but that also makes it hard to apply evenly. As much as I love the concept of this product, I think its too much trouble to use.
When you apply it the color pays off! But when you try to get a good result by smudging it a LITTLE bit the color dissapears. It isn't a mousse at all, it is more liquid.
I didn't like this product, Maybelline misser :(
Lightweight Blush, but Doesn't Set...
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.
Love it! But does it still exist?
This was my ONLY blush for the longest time, and I suddenly can't find it anymore! I used the Soft Plum shade, which was perfect on my fair/cool-toned skin. I loved the creamy texture. So easy to blend and natural-looking, and because it had a matte finish, the color stayed put all day, even on my oily skin. Dream Mousse Blush, where did you go??
Soft and lovely
I really like this product. The colour and the texture are very soft. I didn't like the little shimmery, but then I realize that it's brightened my face without looking oily. The thing I hated it's the presentation. I usually use it with my fingers and I took too much product without want it.
Nice creme blush from the drugstore
I've become a blush/bronzer/cheek product fanatic of late, and this product helps me create some pretty stellar cheek looks. I love the cute packaging- its study glass, small enough for makeup kits and portable enough for travel, and has a cute, informative lid. I heard about the Dream Matte Mousse foundation from Maybelline first, then got this later. I've had this creme blush for awhile now- and theres still a lot left, and its not drying out. There is an ample amount in the jar, too. Looking at it now, its still as soft and spongy as ever! I like to use this as a base for powder blushes- it helps set the creme blush and gives your cheek color some major impact. Without a powder over it, I didn't notice much fading, but there probably was some, like many of you gals mentioned. Rose petal is a nice shade- a shade I tend to gravitate to all the time- on the lids, lips and cheeks. When swatched and on the cheek, you get a nice, dusty pink, with a lot of gold shimmer. You might need a few layers, despite the creaminess, to build the color. The creme has a crumbly texture, that you need to flatten out, in order to spread. The gold shimmer is quite pronounced when swatched, but I don't find it too distracting on the cheek. However, putting your powder blush over this one, will cut out/blanket some of that shimmer. I don't think the gold shimmer would be too unflattering for someone, but watch out if you're a cooler undertone person who doesn't feel great in gold colors. I don't mind the gold shimmer, but I kind of wish I knew it would be present- I bought this for its color, not necessarily the shimmer factor, even the gold shimmer factor. I didn't get to pick a silver shimmer as opposed to a gold shimmer, even though the gold is fine. That shimmer does add some warmth to that pink, mind you. I also heard you could use some of these as creme bronzers which I would love to do. All in all these are great, but a little shimmer heavy. They also have a lot of parabens in them.
A little thick
It's not something I would recommend if you have sensitive skin. It's kind of heavy, and while a small amount does go a long way, it looked kind of caked on, even when only using a pinky tip amount.
The colors are nice though; very natural.
I found that putting a small amount of powder foundation over the top reduced the caked on look.
