I’ve had such a hard time getting my hands on one of the Coffee Cake Maybelline Dreamy Bouncy Blush compacts. So many people online have raved about this color but everytime I looked for it in stores they’ve been sold out or the one left is damaged.
If you’ve not used a Bouncy Blush before, let me tell you a bit about them. These have a slightly domed shape with a “squishy” almost sponge like feel when pressed.
The texture is soft and creamy when you touch it but these aren’t necessarily a cream blush. It has a silky smooth texture that easily blends onto the cheeks and then it dries to more of a powder look and feel.
Coffee Cake is a pale nude shade with a hint of peach to it. I’m not gonna lie, it’s pretty light on pigmentation.The swatch above is several layers just so it could be seen clearly in the pic.
For my fair skin, it shows up pretty well but I do need to build up a few layers. Those with medium skin tones and up will probably have a hard time seeing this one on their skin.
Sadly I’m not quite sure what the hype was about with this one. I’m a fan of the Dream Bouncy blush line but I’m pretty sure I could have done without this one.
What do you think of the shade Coffee Cake, love it or leave it?
