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?
