I already featured one of Maybelline’s new cream stick blushes in Pink Fever* (review here) and today I have a review of a second shade which is more bronzer than blush, Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick in Warm Nude*.
Like Pink Fever, Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick Warm Nude has a soft cream-to-powder type texture which I really love and makes application super easy. However where the two shades differ is that this one is FULL of glitter and is an orange-brown. When sheered out, basically all you see is glitter on your cheeks. When left the way it appears with a quick swipe it looks orangey and unnatural (like in the photo below). But as soon as you start to blend it in, the pigmentation almost entirely disappears and you just end up with shimmer instead. I had so much glitter all over my arm just swatching this, it was a mess.
Although there is a lot of shimmer in Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick Warm Nude, as long as you know that and use it accordingly it’s not a huge problem. Laura over at Beyond Blush also reviewed this product here, and said that it made a great coppery highlighter, which is exactly how I’m using mine. It definitely still leans a bit orange after being blended in, but the shimmer works well underneath a blush with similar tones. I find Warm Nude sticks around on my cheeks for a decent amount of time, lasting about 5 or 6 hours and more if it’s topped with powder.
Overall, Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick Warm Nude can definitely work if all you’re looking for is sparkly highlight, but Pink Fever made such a gorgeous, natural blush that I was disappointed by this shade. However there are several other pigmented Master Glaze shades I have seen swatches of and am lusting over such as Make A Mauve and Coral Sheen.
Have you tried any of the new Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick shades yet?
