WHY I LOVE THIS PRODUCT
I’m actually really in love with these two blushes! They are so creamy and smooth and it reminds me so much of the Canmake ones. The two colours that I have tried out are Candy Coral and Pink Frosting. Dream Bouncy blushes have a spongy texture that’s a little more dense. The texture is very similar to a cookie dough. These are available in 10 shades and it’s extremely lightweight. What I really love about these is that they are neither too shimmer or matte once applied. They are somewhere in the middle, which gives a little more of a naturally flushed look.
While they do suggest to use your fingers to apply these, I find that using a stippling brush or a blush brush works better. It’s much easier to blend and to smooth these when using a brush. It’s definitely easy to wear them, and blending is a piece of cake! I have read that many girls have problem with the staying power of these blushes because they tend to not last through the day. But for some reason, this didn’t happen to me. I’m not sure if it’s because my skin has been changing recently but I find that these cream blushes last for at least 6 hours on me, which is more than some of my other powder blushes.

Candy Coral is a lovely glowing peachy color that really illuminates my face and Pink Frosting is a blue-toned pink when first applied seems like an 80’s bright pink but once smoothed out, it’s extremely wearable. Overall, I would highly recommend these blushes if you are looking for something that’s in between a powder blush and a mousse blush.
