This is a review of the Maybelline Dream Touch Blush in no. 07 Plum.
Cream Blusher in general:
Before I am going to talk about the product, I want to explain a bit about a cream blush in general. Well, a normal blush is like a normal eyeshadow, where the pigments are pressed in a pot. A cream blush is nearly the seem like a cream eyeshadow. Mixed with water, some thickeners and other additives, this products has a creamy texture. The good thing about this is that you can blend it much easier into your skin and that makes your whole appearance more natural. Of course there are also some disadvantages. Some cream blusher will be kind of absorbed by the skin. The only solution for that is to top the blusher with a translucent powder.
Maybelline Dream Touch Blush - General information
The product costs 6,45€. Maybelline promises:
"Cream blush feels satin-soft on skin, glides on smoothly, and blends easily for seamless color and a natural finish. Long-wearing formula provides luminous, long-lasting color on cheeks without clogging pores"
And here the guide how to apply it:
"With your fingertips, pat a small amount of blush onto the apples of your cheeks. Use feathery strokes to blend gently from your cheekbones to your temples. To build color intensity, apply more blush."
Maybelline Dream Touch Blush - The consistency:
Although it is a cream blusher, the product in the pot is not extremely creamy, which I really like. Therefore, you are forced to put your finger just over the surface of the product and not to stick it into the whole pot. The consistency on the fingers resp. on the cheeks is also a mixture of creamy and solid.
Maybelline Dream Touch Blush - The colour
Before blending the product the colour looks really intense and more like a strong pink. However, after blending the products, the colour turns out to be a really nice softly pink colour. In total, it looks like a softly, natural healthy touch! Hence, it is really hard to over blush!
Maybelline Dream Touch Blush - Long-lasting?
Yes, it is! I think, it wouldn't survive a really hard workout or a long walk through the rain :D, but when I apply it in the morning, I can still see it slightly in the evening!
Maybelline Dream Touch Blush - Recommendation?
Definitely! Since I purchased this product, I never want to come back to "normal blushes". Before I have used this product, I didn't really like blushes, because I've always thought it looks over blushed, even the tiniest amount. Now, I really like to wear blush, because it just makes me look healthy! So, I can absolutely recommend this product!!!
I hope you enjoyed reading! Tell me what you think about cream blushes??
