Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Blusher
Not sure how long cream blush has been around for... but to me it's a revelation!
I'm a girl on a quest for the perfect glowing flawless yet natural look; aren't we all?
This product brings me one step closer. Maybeline is the holy grail of make-up brands for the skin for me.
I have very sensitive skin and sometimes eczema, yet very oily around my forehead, nose and sometimes cheeks and that may be one of the reasons why me and powder blush/bronzer has never had a good relationship.
Other blush has always made me look rather cakey, it never sits right on my face and ends up looking patchy, especially around the edges of the applied area, or... kind of... too overly 'made-up'. I'm sure I'm not the only one?
After buying this, I have owned it for 3 weeks and have used it every single day. Because of it's smooth creamy texture it doesn't matter what foundation I use (powder, mousse, liquid, tinted moisturizer) or no foundation at all it will always set right on my face and blend exquisitely.
You can put a tiny amount on for an almost unnoticeable tint or a bit more for that rosy glow and it will look good anyhow, and if you think you've put too much on it's quite easy to rub off. I apply it with my finger and I so much as touch the blush in the pot and lightly dab it on the heights of my cheekbones and blend and that's enough.
It requires barely anything to achieve the desired colour; seriously, I've had this for nearly a month and it looks brand new apart from my fingerprint in the pot... this may just last my entire life, I hope it doesn't go off.
The first day I wore it I wore it along with my new Maybeline 'The Smoother' primer, and 'The Eraser' foundation and I had several compliments on how my skin looked; I looked healthy, glowing, a little rosy (for once) and most importantly; natural.
This 'cream blush' revelation sparked a little inspiration in myself and ever since, if I ever wanted to wear bronzer which looks equally as odd on me as blusher does, I take a foundation a shade or maybe two darker than my regular foundation and apply it to the hollows of my cheekbones as I would normal bronzer, for me it works great as long as I blend it well as it sets better with whatever foundation I use and looks more natural. (For this 'bronzer' I use Dream Matte Mousse in 'sun beige')
Will never be without this product again and would recommend it to anybody at all, especially if you've had the same problems as I have.

I love this blush! It stays on all day and looks great, i got it in the shade 'Berry' and i found it much brighter then i thought it would be, i had to blend it a lot to get it the color thought it would be. And you onl need the tiniest bit so it lasts forever! I definitaly recomend this!

Not as good as the Dream Matte Mousse
I much preferred the old formulation of the Dream Matte Mousse Blush. I find this one sticky and it does not glide on easily - a poor replacement in my opinion and very disappointed they have discontinued a staple product in my makeup bag.
