Anyone who reads this blog is probably very aware that I love my neutral makeup, so it’s no surprise that I was super interested in the latest Maybelline collection that featured only neutrals. Today I have two items to share, Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Master Glaze Barely Pink* and Pure Nude Color Tattoo*.
I have reviewed two Master Glazes on Writing Whimsy before, Pink Fever* and Warm Nude*. They are a stick cream blush from Maybelline, which is a new, easy-to-apply format with varying amounts of colour payoff.
Out of the other two shades I’ve tried, Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Master Glaze Barely Pink is more similar to Warm Nude because although slightly tinted when applied it does sheer out to a mainly shimmery finish. That said, I do like it more than Warm Nude because it still leaves a pinkish (one might say barely pink) hint of colour that is quite flattering as a highlight or a base, but isn’t much of a blush on its own.
Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Master Glaze Barely Pink gives a natural glow that lasts about 4-5 hours on my skin without a powder blush on top and never fully sets, so if you touch your face a lot you will get shimmery transfer. Both this shade and the Maybelline Pure Nude Color Tattoo are limited edition, but if you’re going to grab a Master Glaze I still highly recommend Pink Fever which is just so pretty and natural. I’m also really interested in the shade Coral Sheen for summer!
The second product I tried out from the collection was the Maybelline Pure Nude Color Tattoo, a light beige. This shade makes a fantastic base to other shades, as well as an inner-corner highlight, but isn’t too exciting to wear on its own. Like so many of the Color Tattoos it has fantastic lasting power and didn’t crease on me, so it will be well-loved in my collection.
Maybelline Pure Nude Color Tattoo is also very close in colour to another shade I own (and love) Barely Branded, although that shade is a little more yellow while Pure Nude is more pink, I don’t think there is any real reason to own both unless you need all the colour tattoo shades (like Kalyn). However if you don’t own Barely Branded, Pure Nude is a great shade to pick up!
Overall, neither Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Master Glaze Barely Pink or the Pure Nude Color Tattoo are must-haves for me, but they are nice shades of two products I really like so depending on what you are looking for you may want to grab these Limited Edition products before they are gone!
Have you tried anything from the Maybelline Dare to Go Nude collection? I’m really sad we didn’t get all the Color Tattoo shades in Canada!
