Air-whipped mousse delivers satin-soft feel on skin. Long-wearing formula will not clog pores."   6 shades


I was intrigued by this product simply because I've never seen anything like this! It looks and feels like the inside of a marshmellow! But of course, it's not sticky. It really is so light to the touch and you have to use very little of it to cover your face--at least I don't, and I need coverage! I'm posting my naked face just so you can see what good coverage it really gives! I was surprised! I find it best to really exfoliate my skin before using the mousse. If I don't, my skin tends to look pretty flaky--I have super dry skin! And of course moisturize and treat my under eyes.

I've been using this for a while and I've hardly used any of the product! I find it's best to get a little dab on your finger then rub it on another in little circles to really "melt" the consealer. For me at least, this makes it go on really smooth. I just use a small amount of the blush, though it's not too pigmented. I find it just gives me a nice little rush of color on my cheeks--the kind that doesn't show up well in photographs! But hopefully you can see it in my pictures. To sum it up, I like these products well enough. I wouldn't say that I LOVE them, but they are nice enough and I am glad I tried them. Who knows, maybe they will continue to treat me right and it will make it's way into my "go to" makeup drawer! It's got to prove itself this summer if it want to make it there!!

Ok, here's my before picture, try not to cringe!!
What a difference a little makeup does!

And here with the blush and rest of my makeup! Much better!!

Wow the concealer really works for your under eye circles! Lovely stuff. I have the blush and although it isn't my favorite... I LOVE THE TEXTURE! Very very whipped indeed.

I have the dream matte mousse but unfortunately I bought the lightest color, which is what I normally use, and should have bought a darker one ... but I enjoyed the texture! Is very light, covers imperfections and is perfect for my oily skin.

i have the blush but i'm sorry to say that long lasting it isn't...it last hardly half an hour on me!

I own the Dream Mousse Blush in Playful Peach. I love how soft the product is and how easy it is to apply. They also have some sparkles in it. The down part is that this isn`t very long lasting but that is fixed if you layer a powder blush on top or translucent powder.

I used the pink blush a few times but i really didnt get into it! I think its because my skin is quite oily to begin with it just slipped off even with putting primer on. I really like the color though and it was super easy to blend!

I'm glad this worked so well for you! Unfortunately it hated my oily skin and just slid off. It also was very hard for me to find the correct color and it had a very odd finish on me :(
