I am a huge fan of cream blushes, so I was really excited when Maybelline released their recent line of cream blushes in stick format, and I definitely wanted to test one out right away. The first one I tried was Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick Pink Fever*.
Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick Pink Fever is a bright, cool-toned, bubblegum pink that has a slight shine to it along with silver shimmer. However, while you can pick up on the shimmer when swatching, I really don’t notice when I apply the blush.
You apply Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick Pink Fever by twist up to reveal the product. I recommend not twisting too much up at once to prevent it from breaking, because this is a soft, creamy product. Although it doesn’t look like there is much in the tube (and I have read reviews that complain about this), when I checked out the weight–6.8 g– it was over double the product of the MUA cream blush I have been loving these days, as that is only 3.2 g. I think the format, a stick instead of a pan, just makes the quantity more obvious, but I don’t think it’s an unfair amount.
Although it looks like a bright pink in the swatch, the amazing, wonderful thing about Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick Pink Fever is just how amazingly well it applies. It blends out easily, either with your fingers or with a brush, and gives an incredibly natural look. You can see it on my cheeks in these photos, and honestly, even I was surprised at how natural it look given the colour in the tube.
Even though it is technically a cream, the really neat thing about Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick Pink Fever is how it turns powder-like on your skin as you blend it in, giving it a really flawless finish. Although the shimmer isn’t noticeable to me, I think it does give some more dimension to the blush on your cheeks.
Wearing Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick Pink Fever on its own, I find that this lasts most of the day on me, maybe 6 hours, which is decent for a cream blush. I always top my cream blushes with a powder on in a similar colour to “set” them and get them to last all day. I absolutely love the look of a cream blush, and I think it’s especially nice on dry winter skin.
There are six colours in the Master Glaze line, and I am definitely lusting over the others, especially Make A Mauve and Coral Sheen!
