Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush Pink Frosting is one of the Dream Bouncy blushes that had replaced the discontinued Maybelline Dream Mousse line. The Dream Bouncy Blushes have the same shades as the Dream Mousse line, but these are not whipped into a mousse consistency.
I’m not really a fan of cream blushes and have only bought 2 in the past, Chanel Presage and Affinite Le Blush Creme de Chanel. I have given away Affinite and only kept Presage simply because it was a Limited Edition. The reason why I don’t like cream blushes is because, however clean my fingers are, I don’t like sticking them in the blush pan. I don’t like my fingerprints messing up the blush, lol. But I love how easy these cream blushes are to apply.

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush Pink Frosting is a cool-toned medium pink with silver micro shimmers. I couldn’t capture its true color in the pan, but you’ll see how cool-toned it is in my swatches below. It has a powder-gel formula that is as lightweight as a powder blush, yet is creamy that it melts perfectly into the skin. It looks really pigmented in the pan, but don’t be deceived by that, as Pink Frosting is fairly sheer. Although, the color can still be built-up for more color.
As you can see in the arm swatch above, the silver micro shimmers almost disappears once blended. Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush Pink Frosting is a lovely light-medium pink with a cool undertone. It will work best on light to medium skintones, but the color can be built-up.
Once Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush Pink Frosting is blended, the silver micro shimmers transform into a beautiful sheen, giving that healthy and glowy luminosity. It doesn’t accentuate my pores and most importantly, does not clog my pores and does not break me out. Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush Pink Frosting lasts only for about 4-6 hours on my oily (and sometimes combination) skin and fades into a very light pink glow.
Above photo shows how soft and pretty Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush Pink Frosting is on the cheeks. It brightens up my face, and the silver micro shimmers are not really noticeable, but rather translates into a beautiful sheen and healthy glow. It is a very wearable pink for me and gives that pop of color that looks natural. I only applied it lightly on my cheeks but as I’ve mentioned, it is easily buildable if you want more color. You can build it up for a more vibrant and brighter look or wear it light for a more natural flush of color.
The recommended application for Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush Pink Frosting is to use 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.

I don’t have a blush shade similar to it, but I feel like it’s pretty close to Chanel Affinite (not so sure, though, because I don’t have it anymore to swatch them side by side). Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush Pink Frosting is so pretty and its creamy texture makes for a fairly easy application. This blush did not disappoint so I’ll probably purchase another one from this line.
Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush Pink Frosting comes in a plastic case that is not so classy, but is fitting for it’s price. It’s very easy to open unlike MAC Dainty Mineralize Blush which until now I find it hard to open. There is also no mirror in this case, but that’s not a problem for me since I usually only apply my blush at home. 😉
I bought my Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush Pink Frosting for Php429 from the Maybelline counter in The SM Store – Mall of Asia. It is really cheap compared to other cream blushes like Chanel Presage which costs around Php2,300. I couldn’t find its box to check the exact price, but Chanel cream blushes are really expensive. Maybelline Dream Bouncy blushes have a Net Wt 5.6g / 0.19 oz while Chanel cream blushes only have 2.5g / 0.09 oz worth of product.
