Review: Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush

At the Maybelline display in CVS, they had coupons available for customers. They were promoting the new foundation from their "Dream" line and the coupons were for one dollar off any Dream Mousse blush or foundation. I've always wanted to try the blush, so I took advantage of the coupon and bought a blush in the shade "Cloud Wine (50)". They usually retail at about $6.49 so I paid like $5.49.

One thing I liked is how light and feathery it felt, really nice to the touch. Also, when I swatched it, it had nice color payoff. Here are some swatches:

It didn't work well with my semi-oily skin at first. The first time I tried it, I just wore it over my tinted moisturizer and it faded rather quickly. But, when I wore it over my foundation after I set it w/ powder, it stayed put nicely. So it's not a good summer everyday product for me because I wear tinted moisturizer more than foundation, unless i'm going somewhere. I would wear this more in the cooler seasons.

the good: good color payoff, light to touch, nice texture, blends well, good price
the bad: not ideal for oily skin in the summer (unless you set w/ powder first), not a lot of shades

I would say give this product a try, it's affordable and it performs well.
