Maybelline's website says "Freshest flush ever: • Revolutionary gel formula provides a new bouncy texture. Lightweight like a powder, yet melts seamlessly into skin like a cream • Natural sheer wash of color that is buildable for greater color intensity• Dermatologist tested, Allergy tested • Non comedogenic" There are ten shades total, and the color I chose was 15 Rose Petal-one of the lightest shades.
Packaging: Cute portable little dish. I love how small it is, yet it seems packed with product. Its got a clear top, which gives you a clear view of what you're getting.
Color: Its a beautiful light pink. I actually took some swatches, but it was so light it barely showed up. This is the best that would show up on my arm.

Consistancy: Its spongy, soft, and it does give a little when you push down on the blush itself. I like this much better compared to the hard cream blushes I've tried before.
Performance: Ok, its obvious I actually went too light when picking my blush, however, it does give a nice glow to my cheeks. Its not overloaded with shimmer so it looks natural. It blends super easily, and does seem to melt into my skin. It doesnt have a lot of staying power however, and seems to fade after 4hrs or so (maybe a dusting of translucent powder will help?). I do like that the color can be built up, and this particular color seems to be mistake proof (since its on the lighter side, if you do goof a little..no one should notice..). I like this blush so much, I'm actually going to get a darker color next (gasp!)
Overall: Even though the color I chose was too light (even for me) I do like it overall. Its blendable, got a nice smooth texture to it, and the color can be easily built up. I love this so much, I want to go out and get more colors. However, it doesnt have much staying power (and that makes me sad).
--I give it-4/5 (more staying power please!)
