      Maybeline blush

      This was one of the first cream blushers I had ever tried and I think it is simply gorgeous.they are very easy to locate on the high street and even easier to find online. I cannot list a price as they tend to vary in different shops. The blusher comes in a small pot with a twist lid . I have found the pots to be very sturdy and I have never had any breakages. The colour of the lid depends on the colour of your blusher which personally I think is a nice touch. All the colours seem to be fairly similar , all pink or coral shades. The colour payoff is fabulous as you can keep them sheer or build them up to the pigmentation you desire. Also they blend like a dream and are streak free. They are very light on the skin so it feels like you''re not evening wearing makeup. The blush itself has iridescent sparkle in it but it''s not overpowering at all. It adds a nice dewy glow to the cheek and brightens up the complexion. They have never caused me any skin problems which is one of the reasons I like them so much. They are also perfect for summer so I would definitely recommend picking some up.

      A nice cream blusher, but not the best.

      I've been dying to try this for ages after discovering I much prefer cream blushers to powders. I've used a few, max factor is my favourite though, and knowing that I like a thick mousse consistency for my foundation I was keen to try this.

      The blush comes in a shallow glass pot with a pink plastic twist on lid. I like that the design is slightly different from what you get from high street brands, mostly just a load of plastic. I think the glass base gives the pot a nice weighty feel and the overall design a sense of luxury. I also like that the pot then becomes re-usable and that you can get every last scrap out of it.

      The blush itself is a nice thick mousse consistency and look also metallic/shiny because of the different pigments in it. It comes in four colour - plum, berry, peach and apricot. I found plum and berry a little dark so opted for peach as it is a nice pretty light pink shade which suits my pale skin. I would definitely like to try the other shades though I do think plum is a little bit extreme.

      I tend to applying this by rubbing the tip of my finger into the contents of the pot and then dabbing and blending this onto the apple of my cheek. I do find that because of the thick yet soft feel of the mousse you do tend to always get more than you need making it look like you are blushing horribly. I have come to dab my finger off on a dried out face wipe before applying to minimise the impact of it. I do find with my max factor cream blush, which is more of a set cream, this doesn't tend to happen but then it is more difficult to blend than this mousse which is easy because it is so soft.

      The price for this blusher is £6.49 from boots which isn't a bad price considering mine is bound to last me well over a year with fairly regular use. I do love the colour of mine and would be pleased to try other shades too. It is definitely better than a powder blush but I'm not sure if it quite lives up to my max factor cream blush because I always end up with too much on.

      Overall, I think this is a nice product. Maybe not as good as others on the market but it certainly does the job.

      Awesome blush with a good variety of colours - adds a healthy glow to your skin.

      I think this blusher was probably the first 'cream' type I had ever tried, and I think it is simply gorgeous. It seems that it has been discontinued by Maybelline as I can never find it in any high street shops any more, but it is widely available online from various discount shops. As it is a discontinued product, I can't give a definite price for it, but I have seen it on a website called The Cosmetic House for £3.25. You can also usually find it on Ebay!

      This blusher comes in a little pot, with a twist lid. I have always found the pots to be very sturdy, and have never had any breakages and I have definitely been through many pots of this blusher. The colour of the lids are different depending on the colour of the blush inside, which I think is a nice touch.

      I have only tried this in the colours 'Dolly Pink' and 'Peach Satin' and have found that both colours are fairly similar. Seeing as I have very pale skin all year round, I tend to look for blusher in a bright pink colour which is why I chose 'Dolly Pink'. It is a lovely colour in the tub, and gives good colour pay off when applied. It is slightly sheer, and very buildable - it also blends like a dream so you don't get any streaky marks across your face. It feels incredibly light on your skin, so it doesn't even feel like you're wearing make-up. It also has some iridescent sparkle to it, which might put a few people off, but I don't find it to be overpowering at all. It just adds a nice healthy glow to your cheeks. I think the 'Peach Satin' variety would suit a lot of skin tones, and again I find it to look quite pinky. It really does brighten up your face though, and I find that it suits me perfectly.

      I have never had any problems with Maybelline prodcuts causing my skin to flare up, which is one of the reasons I like these so much. The formula is gorgeous and light, which I think is perfect for Summer.

      I would definitely recommend trying these if you can find them online, and you should be able to pick up a bargain one on Ebay!

      Gorgeous blush

      The Maybelline dream blush is my favourite product in the whole dream range. It is available in four different shades which are peach, berry, plum and apricot. Unlike most blush ranges I find that I suit all the shades depending on what sort of look I am going for with my make-up at the time.

      Like the rest of the dream range the blush is a creamy semi solid mousse and comes in a small glass jar. It costs around about £6.50 and the jar looks tiny but it lasts quite a long time and you only need a little bit to get the desired effect.

      Like the rest of the range it goes on my skin beautifully and feels so silky smooth to the touch. It has a lovely shimmer to it and the colour it gives it subtle but you can see it with only one light application. If you want to build the colour up then you can just add a little bit more on top until you get the desired colour.

      I love the fact that it is natural looking and I don't end up looking clown like when I have it on. It highlights my cheekbones perfectly and gives me just the right amount of colour to stop me looking ill when I am pale or looking too one toned if I have fake tanned.
      The shimmer it gives off is gorgeous especially in daylight and under bright lighting. It is very flattering and does make my face look more contoured and slimmer.

      I like all the Maybelline dream products but the reason this has become my favourite is that as well as being lovely colours it is also a lot longer lasting than the rest of the range. I know I can add this and I don't have to powder it afterwards ruining the shimmer or watch it slide off my cheeks if I sweat a little.

      This blush is fantastic and one that I will be buying again and again even if I don't buy the rest of the range as often.

      Disadvantages

      Great blusher, soft on the skin and long lasting

      I like to use blusher to add a touch of colour to my cheeks- a little bit in the right places can really liven up a dull complexion and highlight cheekbones. I decided to give Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush a go because I was attracted by the range of colours they had on offer and weren't too expensive- I got one for £4, but I think they go from as cheap as £2.99 if you shop around. The mousse comes in an attractive little glass pot with a slightly pearlised plastic lid showing the colour of the product inside.

      I opted for Dream Mousse Blush in shade 02- Coral. This is a fairly pale pinky-orange, although be warned- the colour of the pot lid is lighter than the colour of the product inside! When I first opened the pot, I was a bit alarmed by how dark the mousse appeared to be but decided to give it a go anyway.

      The mousse blush has a lovely light consistency- almost fluffy in texture- and feels great on the skin. As it's soft and easy to blend, you only need to apply a small amount; just put a little bit, just a dab, on your finger and then gently blend across your cheek. I find I get a much more even finish if I apply the blush with one finger and then blend it in with a different one- I suppose this way you aren't applying any residual product, just blending in the colour that's already there. The softness of the mousse means you are left with a non-streaky wash of colour, and because fingertip application is quite controlled the colour is just where you want it.

      I did find that if I applied too much I ended up looking like a rag doll, so it is important to just use a little bit.

      Once I'd applied the Dream Mousse Blush, I was pleased with the final colour result, which was subtle, natural and much closer to the colour on the lid than I would have expected given how dark the mousse looked to start with. The coral shade was flattering, giving a hint of warmth to my pale skin, and lasted for most of the day. As you only need a very small amount, just a couple of dabs each day, a pot should last a while- several months on, mine is still fairly full!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A light and natural looking blush in 6 great colours choices!

      Whilst I am not a big fan of the heavily made up look I do like a touch of blusher, especially at this time of the year when the cold and wet weather drains the life out of my pasty skin. Blusher has for many years been a staple of mine, both to create colour on the face and also to create contours where previously there were none. It was upon browsing my local cosmetics store recently that I came across this Maybelline Dream Blush Mousse. I usually use a powder blusher but always keen to try a new thing when I see one I bought a pot of this blusher.

      This blusher comes packaged in a neat and compact glass tub which is rather solid in construction and is topped in a screw top plastic lid which is the same colour as the blusher within. What makes this blusher different to others is that it is an air whipped mousse, designed for seamless colour and a natural finish.

      Obviously the colour you choose depends very much upon the look you want to achieve. There are 6 options available and these are:

      * Coffee Cake 60
      * Cloud Wine 50
      * Soft Plum 40
      * Peach Satin 20
      * Pink Frosting 25
      * Rose Petal 25.

      If you require a soft and natural finish then the lighter shades will obviously work best for you, however I quite like to have a flushed look rather like when you come in from a cold winter walk and I therefore chose the Pink Frosting.

      Application of this mousse is very easy. Simply unscrew the lid, and apply the mousse to the apples of your cheeks with your finger tips. Upon opening the tub you are instantly struck by the light and fluffy texture of the mousse, which glides easily over the skin and does not clog as I initially worried that it would. For a heavier look you can simply apply more blusher to the same area to deepen the colour.

      In my experience this mousse works best when applied with warm fingers, as especially at this time of year the mousse can get cold at which point it begins to get a little lumpy when applied to the face. This finish lasts for quite a long time being that mine will usually last for around 6 hours before it begins to wane and needs re-application.

      In my opinion this is a lovely blusher which adds a good flush of colour at this time of year and it therefore comes highly recommended.

      As with all Maybelline products this one can be bought from all good cosmetics stores from between £4 - £6 however it is currently in stock on Amazon for just £2.99.

      Thanks for taking the time to read my review!

        Disadvantages

        hard to find but worth it

        Maybelline is a beauty company offer a wide range of make up products.

        ~Dream Mousse~

        The Dream Mousse range includes a foundation, concealer, bronzer, eye colour and a blush in various shades.This review discusses the Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush.

        This product is a blusher in mousse form. It is designed to glide onto the skin and doesn't clog pores. The result should be a radiant finish to your cheeks. The shade range is dependant on where you buy from. The collection does offer pinks, mauves, red/corals and brown shades.

        The blush is dermatologically tested.

        ~Packaging~

        The blush is presented in a small, round glass jar with a screw top lid. The lids are coloured according to shade chosen.

        ~Price~

        Dream Mousse Blush isn't readily available on the high street but can be purchased online from the following outlets :

        *www.amazon.co.uk - from £2.99
        *www.thecosmetichouse.co.uk - £3.25
        *www.saveonmakeup.co.uk - £2.69

        ~My Thoughts~

        I'm surprised to learn this product is so hard to find now. I purchased 04 Mauve last year from Boots or Superdrug (cannot quite remember which). I don't use it often as I prefer loose powder blush but it is a good product and one which I can recommend if you can find it! The shade range isn't brilliant given availability.

        The jar is sturdy and the lid is secured well to avoid leakages. This blush can be applied by dipping a cosmetic brush into the jar or using your fingers. The Mauve shade is quite strong and has a dusky pink colouring to it. I like my blush to be noticeable but not over the top and this looked like the ideal colour for my skin tone.

        ~Cheeky Mousse!~

        Despite previously trying the foundation in mousse form and it not being great for my dry skin, I wasn't put off using the blush. I had reasoned that I was only applying it to a small area of my face (and not the driest area) so it would be fine. The mousse inside the jar looks rich and heavy though this is deceiving. I use my fingers to apply this and normally over the top of face powder. It is strong enough in terms of colour to be applied underneath but doesn't disturb my powder when I apply it over the top.

        Dipping my finger into the jar, the mousse feels cool and a little damp. It is very light and creamy in texture and easy to use. The mousse literally melts into my skin as I sweep my finger across my cheeks. The mousse blends exceptionally well and is really light and smooth on my skin. It doesn't drag and doesn't feel like it is blocking my skin, My skin is soft and smooth after applying this mousse. There is no strong scent from the mousse.

        Mauve transfers from my finger to skin effortlessly and is highly pigmented. The dusky pink is just as strong as in the jar and really brightens up my skin. It gives my skin a healthy, tinted and dewy appearance. The colouring highlights my cheeks perfectly and doesn't go patchy or disappear during the day. There is a slight shimmer within the colour which catches the light perfectly.

        I am pleased with how long the colouring remains noticeable. I can get around 8hours wear without the colour fading. Any remaining colour on my cheeks is easily removed with a cleanser or facial wipe.

        ~Conclusion~

        I like to use this mousse blush when I want a strong, noticeable colouring to my cheeks which lasts for ages. I do find that with the shimmer, it is better for going out wearing rather than day to day wear. The label has fell off my jar so I cannot confirm the amount inside but it lasts very well as a small blob spreads a long way. The mousse doesn't dry out from opening and closing the jar.

        Overall I can recommend Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush if you don't mind purchasing it online!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          An excellent blush

          I have been a fan of the Maybelline Mousse products for a while. The foundation was my stock product for a long time (until I discovered Benefit, but that's another story) and when I saw the blush mousse, I just had to try it!

          The Mousse comes in a small pot in five different shades: Plum (05), Dolly Pink (01), Mauve (04), Brown (06) and Peach Satin (20). The shade I use the most often in mauve, but I have also tried Plum and Dolly Pink. Each mousse is air-whipped to create a soft texture and it feels gorgeous! It is soft and weirdly wet-but-dry. I hate the feel of powder on my face but, equally, I hate the wet, heavy feel of a liquid foundation; the mousse is the perfect combination!

          I find that the colour goes on very well and clings nicely to my cheeks. It stays on through a whole night of dancing and I don't have to reapply! The three mousses I have tried have a small element of 'sparkle' to them and a little glitter running through them that gets picked up on in the light. I find I need only one or two 'fingertips full' to apply adequate colour per cheek.

          When on the cheeks the blush is light and not at all intrusive on the skin. I tend to be prone to eczema and have had bad reactions to various products before, and this caused no reaction with my skin. I can wear it all day and (naughtily!) not take it off at night and my skin is none the worse.

          Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush is an excellent product and is the only blush I use. It works well for my needs and lasts me a good couple of months. Highly recommended.

            worth of trying out

            Maybelline Dram Mousse Blush. Producer claims that this blush is air-whipped to blend so smoothly, feels virtually weightless and glides on quickly and easily, dreamy formula creates a unique, air-soft texture.
            Package as whole range is made from thick see trough glass with lid in colour of the product. In the pot you have 7ml of product, package can be recycled.
            My colours are 02 Coral and 06 Brown. My skin is dry, sensitive and prone to blemishes especially in T-zone.
            Mousse is very pleasant in use and makes application nice and smooth. You can put just tiny bit for more natural effect, almost unnoticeable flush on the cheeks or dub bit more for nice coloured cheeks and if you think you overdo, you can rub excess off. But be careful because with excess of blush you can also rub of your foundation and canceler if you wear one (it does not happened with powder blushes). To apply it I simply use my fingers and dub it on my cheeks and believe me small bit is going long way as I have both of the blushes for long time and although using it quite often there is only small dent in the product. Mousse gives very nice glow and blends very well with foundation both liquid and mousse. Blush stays on whole day.
            My advice - if you tend to set your make up with loose powder skip it while you using this blush otherwise it can look cakey.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A great blusher product from Maybelline!

            I have tried out several of the items in the Maybelline range, and found all of them to be really good quality and more importantly, they seem to suit my skin type perfectly. When my pot of blusher ran out recently, there was really no competition when it came to me choosing a new brand to try, and I went with the "Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush", such is my liking for their products.

            Supplied in a little glass pot with a plastic screw off lid, the blusher cost me around £6 from my local Boots store, but I have also seen it in other drugstores such as Superdrug. There was a range of about five shades and colours to choose from, with a variety of pink and peach shades right through to less subtle tones such as plum and red type shades. The shade that I chose was "05 Plum" which is obviously a plum type shade.

            The plastic lid on top of the pot screws off quite easily, and inside I can see the plum-coloured blush, which looks to have a very soft, "whipped", mousse-like consistency. I had tried out one of the Maybelline Dream Mousse Blushers in-store by using the tester pot and I really liked the soft mousse consistency of the blusher, thinking it was indeed very soft and felt very light when I tried it out. This made me want to try out the blusher for myself and led me to buy my own pot.

            The first couple of times that I tried out the Maybelline Mousse Blush on my face, I accidentally applied far too much of the product, which probably stems from the shade of blusher I had been using previously to this one... it was a lot lighter in it's shade and tone, and so I would need to use quite a lot of the product to achieve the look I wanted. With the Maybelline Mousse Blush being a sort of plum shade, I found that I didn't need to use a lot of the product to get the look I wanted which I was very pleased about as it would mean that the little glass pot would last me quite a long time.

            In actual fact, I find that this product is one that allows you to 'build up' your colour if you chose to do so. I usually apply just a very small amount to my cheekbones, by either dipping a fingertip into the blush pot and applying it to my cheek, and then blending lightly with a make-up brush. Alternatively, I can just dip the tip of the brush into the pot and apply a small amount to each cheekbone that way. I find that this small amount gives a light tint to my cheeks which is a surprisingly subtle colour, given the robust-looking colour of the mousse blusher itself.

            If I am going out or just want to have a less subtle colour on my cheeks then I can simply apply a bit more of the Maybelline Mousse Blush and build the colour up a bit more. I will admit that I was quite surprised at how easy it was to 'control' the colour building up on my face though, as I have had several products in the past that have given results that are either one extreme or the other - I am left with either a far too subtle-looking finish, or I am left with brightly coloured cheeks which are far too heavily made up for my own look. This was not a problem with the Maybelline Mousse Blush at all, and I was able to 'build' the colour easily on my cheeks until the desired shade was achieved.

            The Maybelline Mousse Blush is very easy to blend which I assume is as a result of it being such a light consistency. The 'mousse' like texture is not at all thick or gloopy feeling when it is applied to my face, and it blends easily with the use of either my fingertips or by using a make-up brush of reasonable quality. It took a little while for me to get used to the light whipped texture admittedly, but this was because I have never used such a blusher product with such a light consistency before. The Mousse Blush also feels extremely light to wear, and does not have the slightly 'heavier' consistency of other blusher products I own that are more like the consistency of lipstick.

            I find too that the Maybelline range of cosmetics overall are quite good in terms of the results achieved lasting throughout the day, and the Dream Mousse Blush is certainly no exception. I have had no problems with having to reapply the product to my face when I am out, and find that it lasts very well, and certainly better than my usual brands of blusher.

            I have also had no problems with any of the Maybelline products causing any sort of side-effects to my rather sensitive skin, and again, the Dream Mousse Blush falls into this category. I have not found the product to be problematic in terms of causing spot break-outs or aggravating the sensitive skin on my face.

            Furthermore, I find that the product is very easy to remove with a simple moist facial wipe or with a little cotton wool pad soaked in make-up remover. I do not need to 'scrub' the make up off my face and find that it comes off with very little effort on my part.

            Overall, I am quite delighted with the results achieved from the Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush and I will definitely buy it again. It does everything I would want my blusher to do, and it does it with ease and speed. I do not have one single negative point to make about this product and feel it deserves full marks.

            There is a whole range of products available from the Maybelline line of cosmetics and they can be found in larger branches of Boots as well as branches of Superdrug. You can also purchase the Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush online at www.boots.com where it is currently on sale for £6.49 (not including P+P), although I believe there is a "3 for the price of 2" promotion available at the moment so it might be worthwhile having a look!

              Disadvantages

              A good little product for the money you spend

              This blush has remained a staple in my makeup case for a very long time now. I have gone through heaps of all different kinds of blush, some are better, some are worse, but as I always seem to be crimping on the cash front I think this is a great buy for little money.

              ***ABOUT THE BLUSH***
              Maybelline air-whips the blush to give it its creamy, light texture and states on its website that it feels "virtually weightless and glides on quickly and easily". The blush itself comes in five shades:

              01 - Dolly Pink
              04 - Mauve
              05 - Plum
              06 - Brown
              20 - Peach Satin

              I personally use Mauve, I think I'm fair to medium skinned, but you can test your preference at a Superdrug or Boots. If you like to buy your makeup online I've found that the colour on the cap quite closely resembles the actual colour of the blush, if you haven't had a chance to test it in-store.

              The blush comes in a little glass pot with a thick plastic screw-cap, and it's small enough to carry easily. I take mine everywhere with me! I measured it at approximately 4cm/1.5 inches in diameter and 3cm/1inch tall with the cap on. This sounds a bit odd but the cap slopes in slightly in the middle, making it easy to actually hold in your hand. I'm not sure why you would want to hold it for a long period of time, but credit to Maybelline for the detail!

              **Interesting and completely random fact! Found this while browsing around about Maybelline. The name 'Maybelline' apparently comes from the creator, T.L Williams, observing his sister Maybel in 1915 mixing Vaseline with coal dust to shade her eyes (well done Maybel). Maybel + Vaseline = Maybelline. So now we've all learned something new today.


              ***SO WHAT'S GOOD ABOUT IT?***

              I love it when makeup lasts a long time, I definitely feel like I'm getting value for my money. When you touch it, it IS creamy and dreamy, but from experience a little really does go a long way! Be careful not to use too much! I like to draw a tiny line of the blush with my fingertip over my cheekbone, and then spread it by rubbing gently. I even put a teensy amount on the bridge of my nose to give a sun-kissed look. The blush blends well and evenly into my skin, and is faintly shimmery rather than glittery. I only reapply it once during the day, so it's quite steadfast.


              ***AND THE BAD POINTS?***
              I always have a battle with myself over whether to opt for cream or powder blusher. I'm not going to compare the Dream Mousse with any particular powder blusher, but I do find that in general cream blusher stays on your skin for longer. There are two main problems I find with cream blush: 1) it can worsen my skin and 2) the blusher can dry out. As it is obviously thicker than powder, I do find that if I wear Maybelline's Dream Mousse every single day I am prone to the occasional spot along the length of my cheekbone, HOORAY. Never a good look! However I do have quite sensitive skin so this may be uncommon. Secondly, if you forget to put the cap back on it can dry out, leaving the blusher crusty and difficult to apply. I must stress though that this takes quite a long time for this to happen. In general I am able to use the entire pot of blusher, and not need to throw it out halfway through use because it has dried out.


              ***WHERE CAN I GET IT?***
              I always buy mine from my local Superdrug. I've just had a browse on the Superdrug website to find the price and for the life of me cannot find it! Hmm not sure why, probably me not looking properly! However I did find that it is available at Tesco's (didn't know Tesco's had it! Yay!) for £5.96 - £6.09 depending on which colour you choose. Which I think is insane, surely they should all be the same price?! I apologise for not being able to be exact, but we'll go with it being widely available between £5.50 - £6.50, at most Superdrug's, Boots and Tesco's, possibly more!


              Overall, it's a decent quality product for a good price. If you're not into cream blushers, this really is very light and worth a tester in shop. If you swear by cream blushers then go for it. I personally think it's a good little product and carry it everywhere.

              Thanks for reading my review!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                I prefer powder blushers

                A couple of years ago I purchased a Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation, and while I was impressed with the consistency and coverage the product offered, the shade just did not suit me and I never got any real use out of it. Blushers are a bit safer in this respect, and so last year I decided to try one of the mousses again.

                The blusher mousse comes in a lovely, heavy glass-bottomed pot with a screw lid. The pot is environmentally friendly in that it is recyclable where facilities exist. Like the foundation in the same range, the blusher is almost weightless, and when it is applied you cannot feel it on your skin at all. Because it is so delicate however, it is easy to scoop too much of the product onto your finger for application, and I have found I have wasted some this way.

                Applying the blusher can be slightly troublesome too, as I have found that as soon as it touches my cheeks it can be difficult to get an even coverage. It is great that the blusher is so steadfast, but there has been several occasions when it has just adhered to my skin too boldly and appeared unnatural. In an attempt to overcome this I have tried using only very small amounts of the blusher and very gently brushing it across a larger area beneath my cheekbones. This method was more successful, but being a big fan of traditional powder blushers I did not feel that the mousse could match up to its more accepted counterparts.

                I still use the blusher mousse from time to time, and enjoy the feeling (or lack thereof) on my skin. However, the difficulty in blending it, coupled with the fact that I still have problems in inadvertently scooping up too much of it prior to applying, would make me hesitant to recommend it. I still much prefer powder blushers.

                  Don't make me blush!

                  I am quite a big fan of Maybelline Mousse items as I find them lovely and light on the skin and find they do not have the horrible 'cloggy' feel that liquid items have, however give a better coverage than that of powder.

                  The particular item I am about to review is the Dream mousse blush, by maybelline. This is an air whipped mousse blusher.

                  Mine is in shade '02' which is a very light, girly pink called coral (it is not an orangey coral which the name does sometimes imply.)

                  It comes in quite a small, round glass pot, that is quite a bit smaller than the post size of the dream matter mousse foundation. It cost me £3.98 and I purchased mine from Amazon, though the most common retailers are that of Boots and Superdrug.

                  The blusher itself feels very light and almost spongy or bouncy to the touch. I personallly find this type of blusher easier to apply with my fingers due to the fact it is hard to apply with a brush and if you use a sponge, most of it gets lost in a sponge.

                  It is very easy to apply and does have a creamy feel to it, which means it is nice and easy to blend into the cheeks. I personally find this to be a very light blusher and I do not find it cloggy or like it is weighing my face down.

                  The colour itself comes out very subtle and the colour I have got has an ever so slight shimmer to it. Though, I am sure you can layer this on a bit more if you prefer a darker or slightly more dramatic look.

                  I also find that this lasts the whole day and that there is no need to reapply throughout the day, which is always a plus!

                  Overall this is something that I would definitley reccomend!

                    Disadvantages

                    Good blusher for holidays and for a very minimal look

                    I like this blusher but it has both good points and bad points and I don't think I would buy it very often.

                    What I think is good about it is that it is good to take on holidays and when you are out and about as it is small and compact and you don't need a blusher brush to apply it so it is very easy to use.

                    I used this on holiday and it was good as it is light and I didn't want something heavy on my skin when it was hot.

                    The things that put me off this blusher is that to me it doesn't look as striking as a powder blusher does and gives a lighter look which again is good for on holiday and if you want a very subtle look.

                    I prefer a blusher that stands out and this doesn't really so I wouldn't personally use it everyday.

                    Disadvantages

                    For the low price - a reasonable purchase

                    I don't often buy Maybelline products but I do think it is one of the best high street brands as it is and is affordable and good quality. I bought this blusher because it seemed ideal for traveling and applying make up on the go - fiddly blusher brushes are such a pain on the train!

                    In general I prefer powder blush as it goes on more evenly, and in past experiences cream blush can be streaky. However, I think that Maybelline Mousse blush deals with this problem really effectively. On application is kind of turns powdery, making it easy to smooth it over and get an even and natural looking finish. It is very easy to apply as a result and id ideal for quick make-up touch ups on the go. The colours available are also very natural looking and achieve a lovely, shimmering look.

                    My one complaint would be that I think that rather a lot of the mousse is required on each application due to the airy texture, and as a result perhaps the product will not last as long as other cream blushers, and certainly no as long as powder alternatives. That said, the product comes at a reasonable price and as such I would certainly recommend it!
