Quick Pick: Maybelline Dream Touch Blush in Berry

Maybelline Dream Touch Blush may suffer from the most boring packaging in the world, but it's actually a damn good blush.  I picked it up this week in a 3 for 2 at Boots when I went hunting for some of Maybelline's Colour Tattoo eyeshadows (more on them later).  Enclosed in a small, heavy glass pot with a plastic lid, it's not the most inspiring or luxe packaging, but for the tiny price of £6.49, it's more about the product within.

Inside the pot, you find the blush itself - and it has an interesting texture.  It's definitely not a power, and it's definitely not a cream - it's more of a solid fluid blush.  Applied with the fingers, it softens and melts into the skin, applying more as a silky liquid.  I've taken to applying it with my Daniel Sandler Waterbrush, which is excellent for any cream or fluid blush product, and I've found that it blends smoothly and evenly into the skin, leaving a pretty natural looking glow without any kind of residue.

This shade, Berry, is a mid pink with a slight berry tone.  It's very, very pretty indeed, and whilst it's not overtly shimmery, it does have a bit of a sheen to it.

The above shows Dream Touch Blush applied with Daniel Sandler's Waterbrush - it makes for a very soft, natural flush which is pretty and subtle.  For a mere £6.49, I couldn't be happier with this stuff - it lasts well, blends beautifully, and looks great.  I'm quite tempted by the Plum shade, particularly at that price.
