As regular readers will have seen (or on the off chance you had a little look at my blog a week or so ago), I went crazy in the makeup isle of boots. No, not actual crazy, I wasn’t carted off covered in makeup, with nail varnish all over my face and chewing on a lipstick, I just splurged on their 3 for 2 offer and got myself some new makeup... See wasn’t that bad! You can have a little look at what I bought here.
Anywho, one of my purchases was this Dream Touch Blusher by Maybelline.
I love Maybelline products, as a complete tight ass, I think they are proper value for money! You could spend so so much on makeup products, but when the likes of Maybelline and Rimmel are making such good quality ones at low prices why would you waste your money?
Right, so I love blusher, and normally I tend to wear powder, but now I am totally converted! This cream blush goes on like a dream (the name therefore appears fitting), it has a creamy, some might say greasy texture, but it doesn’t feel like that on your face. When applying I like to start off light and build up the layers slowly, and given that it’s a cream you have better control over where exactly the product will be applied to.
I use my ring finger to apply as I find I have more control over the product, and gives just the right pressure to work it in.
I have picked 07 Plum, as I prefer the slightly darker shade of this in comparison to the other ones available and think the colour compliments my skin tone (if I do say so myself). The colour is highly pigmented so you don’t need to use loads of the stuff and has a really gentle shimmer which gives a very pretty look and feel about it.
Usually with powder blush I tend to find it wears off throughout the day, but with this lovely little product, it has great staying power and lasts as long as I want it to. Naturally, it’s not magic and it’s not miracle stuff so it will wear off eventually but compared to other products I’ve tried I think it’s really well lasting.
Recently, I’ve been applying this blush and then using a tad of my normal powder blush over the top just to blend it a bit better, and then a touch of Collection Shimmer Shades highlighter (which I also got in my Boots buys), to give that perfect rosy cheeked look. Ahhh, I do love a bit of blush... or a lot of blush in my case...
Overall I would say that I utterly love this blush and wear it on a daily basis, it is a beautiful colour and lasts all day... what more could you want!?! Thank you Maybelline!
Love love love,
