Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in 05 Fresh Pink

Hello IMBB Lovelies!

How’s everyone? Me, I am still coping with the weather here in Canada. We have -10 degrees Celsius average daily temperature here. The coldest I experienced is -30 degrees and 0 degree makes me so happy believe me. My son is enjoying the snow a lot and I wonder why he seems as if he’s not feeling cold at all. This cold temperature gives rosy glow on my son’s cheeks and but not on my cheeks! It’s so unfair! Hihihi. So, I am on my search for a blusher to fake that “it’s-so-cold-outside-and-I-ran to-some-place–warm” flush on cheeks. One blusher I tried is the Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in 05 Fresh Pink.

Product Description:

Now blush has bounce! Revolutionary powder-gel formula.In 10 shades.

Freshest flush ever:

• Revolutionary gel formula provides a new bouncy texture.
• Lightweight like a powder, yet melts seamlessly into skin like a cream
• Natural sheer wash of color that is buildable for greater color intensity
• Dermatologist tested, Allergy tested
• Non comedogenic

With your fingertips, blend a small amount of blush onto the apples of your cheeks, applying from your cheekbones to your temples. To build color intensity, apply more blush.


My Take on Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in 05 Fresh Pink:

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes are packaged in a round plastic pan with gold colored base and transparent lid. Nothing special but I like that I can see the product inside through the lid. I believe it is of the same size and packaging with Maybelline’s Clear Smooth Shine Free Blush if you are familiar with that. What’s different about this is the product itself. It is bouncy!I was surprised when I first dipped my finger lightly on it, it left a dent but sure does goes back a bit to its original dome shape form in a while or when I tried to form it again. It was like I was playing with clay when I first explored on the product. It has this interesting texture to it that the closest I can compare it to is mousse but this is softer and a little fluffier. It’s so cute, I am so amused.


Since it is gel-like or mouse-like in consistency, it has moisture in it which powder blushes lack. So I thought this could work on my dry cheeks and it does. This imparts a nice shine on my skin which makes me want to consider this product as a blusher and highlighter in one. It highlights the apple of my cheeks nicely. I use my fingers to apply it on my cheeks which I find unhygienic. Then I blend it a little and dust my slanted blush brush lightly on my cheeks. I love how it melts on my skin. The first time I tried this, I feel like its lacking pigment but it is buildable. I prefer this kind over those overly pigmented ones.


Now this makes this blusher imperfect. It does not last long on my cheeks. Two hours max makes me sad. And no, I am not much into reapplying blush of this kind every 2 hours. But because the color and the glow are so beautiful, there are times I find myself reapplying!


What I Like AboutMaybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in 05 Fresh Pink:

-it has nice texture.
-Feels light on skin
-Makes cheeks glow
-Fresh Pink is a lovely color that appears very natural on skin
-Buildable color
-Nice for dry skin
-Affordable for $6

What I Don’t Like About Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in 05 Fresh Pink:

-Lacks pigment but is buildable.
-Last only an hour or two on my cheeks. This is so sad.

Final Thoughts:

I do hope Maybelline would come up with a blush as beautiful as this but with lasting power everyone wants for a blusher.

  1. The nearest possible product to this one available in India, I think is Very Me Cherry My Cheeks – Pretty Pink from Oriflame. It gives great pigmentation and lasts pretty long. It is one of the best natural pink colour I have ever used. One must try it it is amazing.

  2. Val!!! How are you?? 🙂 Omg -30 degrees I don’t know if I would be able to move at all in that weather.

    Kinda interesting texture this has in the pan but these blushes barely show on my skin.

    1. Hi Ida!!!! I am doing good. Thanks. How about you? Yes -30, I can’t stay outside for long, you touch a metal with your barehands, it will hurt so bad. I always run from car to our house and from house inside the car. Hahaha.

      Yup the texture is new to me and I agree, there are shades of this that I tried that didn’t show up on my skin as well. For his Fresh Pink shade, I do have to layer/ build up.

      Thanks Ida! I am so glad to hear from you!
