Swatch blended out

A bouncy blush....I was curious about this one. I was wondering what exactly made it bouncy. The second that I laid hands on it it was pretty obvious. Maybelline's new Bouncy Blush is literally bouncy to the touch....quite surprising.

Upon swatching this particular color (Orchid Hush) I was a pretty disappointed. Blended on my hand it appeared to be nearly invisible (see above). However, on my cheeks (applied with a small duo fiber brush), over foundation, it ended up giving me a light pink glow; still sheer, but better than I expected it to be. However I'm not crazy about the lasting power. It's not often that I have a blush fade on me, but this one did. Perhaps it'd be better if I set it with a powder but it's not worth the effort in my opinion.

Would I purchase it again, or in a different color? Likely not. It's a lovely product, but because of the lasting power (or lack of) it just isn't for me.

What are your thoughts on this blush? Have you tried any of the other colors?

It looks very pretty on you still. Very natural looking.

I have seen this in stores, but I'm not really impressed by it. Your review gave confirmation. Looks like anything else I've owned. In fact, my ELF blushes look better than this color.

I've seen a lot of reviews of this - most are raves - but the swatches are never appealing enough for me to pick one up. The colors are great, but the pigmentation is definitely lacking! And your review confirms that for me.

I did put powder on top of mine when I used it, I tend to do that will all my blush products so I didn't have the issue with it fading.

My skin is pretty dry though also so I don't think it soaks anything up either lol. I'm also super duper pale so everything shows up on me 10 fold as well. :(

I wonder if it could be specific colors though because I did see someone who owned most of them and some performed differently for them in their video review.

I think its more highlighter than its a blush
the color is to sheer and for darker skin it'll be a miss
