Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush Review


 Today I’m excited to review an interesting product I’ve been loving lately: this Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Plum Wine. I purchased it last week while on a weird Amazon binge (do you guys get those too? Only me? Gotcha.) and I ended up with this in my cart for cheaper than I could get it at the drugstore, so of course I got it. Thanks to Amazon Prime’s enabling of me, it was here two days later!


 The leaves are truly gorgeous right now, so of course I had to “artistically” put it in some of them for pictures. I couldn’t help myself!

I chose the shade Plum Wine, I’m really loving plum and maroon shades of everything right now! The quality of this blush is really amazing. The packaging claims that it applies like a powder but sinks in like a cream, while being a gel. I actually have to agree with the application! It sinks right into your cheeks, staying like a tint all day. I usually apply it with a beauty blender and blend it in.


It should be said, the packaging of this product is not exactly aesthetically pleasing. The top is fine, but the pan is just cheap looking plastic. I was a bit disappointed in Maybelline, but they’re still one of my favorite drugstore lines! I’m still looking to collect the rest of these shades. I just wish they were prettier, like my favorite metallic Milani packaging. Overall, 4.5/5.




I tried to get a picture of what it looked like on, but the wind was not cooperating with my hair! Oh well, I did try. The color in the pan is very rich and dark, and that stays true with the transfer to skin- a very little bit of this goes a long way. You can pick it up at the Maybelline site, or head on over to Amazon for the cheaper one 😉

What do you think? Have you tried this blush series? What do you think of Maybelline? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

Love Kiki

  1. I’ve heard about these blushes before but I never tried them because the reviews seemed to be mixed. Glad to see that you got good color payoff from this. I need to see if I can find this at my local Target.


  2. I love Maybelline’s bouncy blush. I just wrote a review on it on my blog! I got it in the shade “Fresh Pink,” but I’ve been dying to try “Plum Wine.” Thanks for the great post, I’ll be purchasing “Plum Wine” soon!
