Maybelline Dream Touch Blush : Review




Not to be confused with the +Maybelline UK  Dream Mousse Blush, the new Dream Touch Blush is a cream whipped formula rather than a mousse this time and it has a more developed colour pigment I think in comparison that allows for a better pay off on the skin colour wise. I have been using this blush for about two weeks now; it’s been my go-to blush as I have been keeping my skin very minimal in terms of makeup. So, daily makeup is basically just a little liquid foundation or BB cream depending on the day, concealer, mascara and this.



 I’ve just really been trying to take it back to basics since the New Year and really in terms of streamlining my life, my wardrobe and now my makeup for everyday I’ve been enjoying the less-is-more approach, and from the feel of things, so has my skin. 


I liked this blush because it was a creamy texture first of all, and the shade seemed like it would be really flattering on my super pale skin tone (and it is) and I wanted a ‘natural looking flush’ to my cheeks which I really think this product delivers. It doesn’t have a heavy feel on the skin, it doesn’t become patchy or caked over time (after eight hours I noticed it was still going strong!) and it really does just brighten up the cheek with a touch of shimmer ingrained through the product, there isn’t too much so it’s not like you’d be disco crazy lady by using this, but it is just enough to provide a little bit of highlight as well as pigment. 


I picked shade 06 Berry, and for my skin-tone it's been great and because it's has that soft buttery texture it's so unbelievably easy to blend into the cheeks - using either your fingers or I use my Real Techniques Buffing Brush and it leaves things flawless and natural, like I've been for brisk walk when I haven't (and we know this because my hair is probably still in place!)

It retails for : £6.49 and be found in your local Boots!


Geek Chic or Just Geek? Hmm ;)
