maybelline dream bouncy blush

Have you ever wished a company would make something they already offer better? I have wished maybelline would come out with new colors or packaging for their dream mousse blush for quite some time...Instead they decided to re-design the whole line and introduce dream bouncy blush to replace the original mousse blush. There are 10 shades in the new spring collection I only had a choice of 4 at shoppers so I chose "pink plum" which is a lovely shade in the container.
How is it different?
This new version of this blush is in a compact and it more solid than a mousse. The blush still manages to have a very unique texture to it and will "bounce" under your finger when you go to apply it. The only downfall I have found so far is that it is more sheer than the original formula:( Pink plum is really, really sheer I wish there would have been a tester for me to try before hand. I have to dig a chunk of it out and apply it quite thick to resemble the color on the compact.
Overall?
When I heard these blushes were getting a redesign I could not wait, hoping for the new incarnation to be my new holy grail blush {I just don't seem to get the hang of powder blush...} but sadly I am not sure if these will deliver enough pigmentation for me. There are 2 more shades I would like to try but right now I am slightly sad about these. If you want to see the full swatches musing of a muse did a great review.
