Review: Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Blush in Soft Plum 40

I bought this blush on a whim…also because it is part of the dream collection by Maybelline dream matte mousse, which I love but is too light for my skin tone since I bought it in the wrong color! Um, but this is a really great product! I love the consistency of the product, especially when you take it on your fingers, it blends so well too!

I love the packaging (not the plastic that it comes in) the glass is really nice and not thin. I like that you can see the product inside and it looks like there isn’t a lot but it takes a while before you run through all the blush. I find that using a light hand works best because it can look like your face is really flushed when you don’t mean for it to. I generally blend more if it becomes too pigmented on my cheeks.

The swatch above is just a run through and it looks really nice and you can see that it is an easily blendable blush. There is flecks of shimmer/glitter in the blush but when applied it doesn’t show. If you have acne (like me) you might not like this so much because it is not a blush that will cover it up along with your foundation. However, it works really well so I don’t mind it so much.

Positive: Amazing color and easy to build.

Negative: Won’t help cover up blemishes/acne and can show “imperfections”.
