Maybelline Dream Touch Blush | Berry


Hello Lovelies!

I hope you are all having a fabulous week! Honestly I feel like this week is dragging on forever! I'm going up to Dublin with my boyfriend next weekend so I think once I'm looking forward to something time seems to slow right down! Does anyone else feel like that? Anyway only one week and two days to go...not that I'm counting!

Recently I was in Tesco with my boyfriend and I don't know how it happened but I ended up in the "beauty" aisle! Our local Tesco has recently acquired a Maybelline stand! As soon as I seen it I literally pounced on it (even though Boots is across the road from it..) and started swatching to my hearts content! Does anyone else love when all the products are new and the testers are actually still in one piece? The clean freak inside me loves it! 

After swatching what seemed like everything, I spotted the Dream Touch Blushes in the bottom corner of the stand. I remember the gorgeous Beth mentioning one in her March Favourites post and she even mentioned that it was nothing like the Dream Matte Moouse Foundation (admit it, we've all been there, used that ladies..) which was a big seller for me! They only had two shades available which was a bit disappointing but I persevered and managed to make a purchase regardless! 

The shade I picked up was 06 Berry, which as the name suggests is a deep pink -berry- colour! I always tend to gravitate towards pinkier shades when choosing a blush instead of the peacher shades. I'm not sure if I'm right in doing this or if the shades even suit me but thats what happens! When I got home and swatched it on the back of my hand I noticed that it had a lot more sparkle in it compared to when I swatched in the shop (damn those artificial lights!) and I panicked a little! I used my Real Techniques Stippling Brush to apply it to my cheeks and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with the finish of it. The formula is gorgeous and creamy, not at all drying and it's so pigmented so you need the tiniest amount of it! Once I had it on my cheeks I honestly didn't notice the shimmer in it! It leaves such a gorgeous natural finish, and I am in love with the colour! 

I think this will be a firm staple in my make-up bag for quite a while! It's so quick and easy to use and leaves such a gorgeous glow to the cheeks. Love! Have you tried the Dream Touch Blushes? Have you seen any other shades in this range because I would love to try some if there were!

  6. The shade you've picked looks gorgeous! I've got a Dream Touch blusher but must admit I was a little disappointed with it. Maybe I picked the wrong shade, as Berry looks lovely :)
