Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush - Peach Satin review

What it is: 
An air-whipped mousse blush designed to give a luminous and long lasting color on your cheeks.  It is designed to ensure that it will not clog pores. 
How to Apply 
It is recommended that you apply this using your fingertips.  Pat some of the product on your finger and apply to cheekbones.  Next, blend it out from your cheekbone to your temple.

For a more sanitary application, you can do the same thing using a small stippling brush.  A good option would be the MAC 188 small duo fibre brush, which fits perfectly into the pot.

For a strong lasting power I would recommend applying a little bit of powder blush over top.

For more color intensity, add more blush.

How much product is in the container? 
In this pot, there is 0.20 OZ, or 5.75 g of product.  However, don't be afraid to purchase this based on amount of product, because you barely need any product per application, so it lasts a long time. 

This has a very pleasant light weight formulation and consistency.  It isn't a powder or liquid or a cream blush like we usually see, it's a mousse which makes application very easy and makes this product unique.  It feels satiny soft on your skin and it blends easily for a seamless natural glow and a perfect finish.  The Maybelline Dream Mousse blush contains silicones which prevents caking as well as gives it its velvety texture, as well as jojoba oil, which is one of its main ingredients.  This product is non comedogenic, so it doesn't clog pores, which is an added plus. 

This is a beautiful peachy pink color with shimmer in it.  It looks very natural on light-medium skin despite the shimmer mainly because it's definitely not huge chunks of glitter, it's finely milled so it only adds to the over all glow that this blush gives your skin.  However, I wouldn't recommend it as an every day blush because although the glitter is fine, there is a LOT of it. I think this would be more finely suited for a night out blush.   

I am in LOVE with this packaging.  It is made of thick glass and has a uniquely shaped cap.  The cap is the same color as the blush inside for each different shade, which i think is a very cute and unique idea for a blush.  So, the color of the cap on Peach Satin is a stunning peachy-pink color, same as the blush that it contains. Back to the glass container, trust me when i say it is made of really thick glass, so it won't break if you drop it, being the clumsy person that i am, I've dropped this a number of times on carpet and hard wood, and it has never even chipped. The cap twists off very easily.  The only thing i'm not loving about it is the fact that you need to dip your finger in it to get product out, which is SO unsanitary.  The only way to avoid that particular issue is to use a small duofibre brush for application. 
Approximetely 5-8 dollars.  Which i think is a fantastic price for the quality of product you're getting with this blush. 

Color Selection
There are currently 6 different shades in a variety of different colors out right now.  

Lasting Power
Without a powder blush layered on top, i'd say that this blush lasts a good 3-5 hours before i notice any fading.  

Who would i recommend this to? 
Definitely beginners because there is no way that you could ever mess up during application. 
People with oily, normal or even dry skin.  For people with oily skin, this gives you the same look that a cream blusher would give you without all the greasiness.  This has a lovely silky texture, but it is not greasy at all.  People with dry skin will love it as well because it does not accentuate dry patches on the face, unlike the foundation. 

In conclusion,
lasting power: 3/5
color variety: 4/5 
price: 5/5 
Packaging: 4/5
color: 4/5 
amount of product: 5/5
formulation/texture: 4.5/5
