There have been two new blush formulas released by Maybelline recently– I’ve already featured the first one, their Master Glaze Blush Sticks, but today I have a review of the second release, Maybelline Master Hi-Light Blush in Coral*.
Maybelline Master Hi-Light Blushes come in 6 shades, two of which are bronzers. I was really excited to receive coral, as I don’t think I own any similar blushes. In the pan, this is a really beautiful mosaic. However the shades are large enough that if you really wanted to apply a colour individually (for example, using the lightest shade to highlight on its own) you could do so using an eyeshadow brush. However, I apply using a blush brush and swirling in the pan to get a mix of all the colours.
Together, the mosaic of Maybelline Master Hi-Light Blush in Coral combines to give a shimmery, coral which is a bit orange. It offers a decent amount of pigmentation, but you don’t have to worry about over-applying either. It contains lots of shimmer and really does give a highlighter glow to your cheeks. I don’t always apply a separate highlighter, and for me this is definitely a dual-purpose product. However, if you want a more intense highlighter look you may have to apply a separate one, but I still think this offers a nice glowly look.
The formula of Maybelline Master Hi-Light Blush in Coral is really nice! I find it very smooth and not too powdery. I think it offers a decent amount of pigmentation although I do find the shimmer longer lasting than the colour, which wears for about 6 hours on my skin.
The packaging of Maybelline Master Hi-Light Blush in Coral flips open to reveal a nice big mirror (awesome!) along with a totally useless brush. The nice thing about having the mirror on the bottom, even though it takes more space, is that you can still see the blush through the top of the lid, which is something I really like in packaging.
Overall, I’m really happy with my Maybelline Master Hi-Light Blush in Coral. It’s a great shade for the upcoming warm months, is different than anything I own, and does exactly what it promises by combining some highlighter benefits with a blush. I am not interested in the bronzers, especially with that amount of shimmer, but the Mauve and Pink Rose blushes from the Hi-Light line also caught my attention and they both look really pretty.
Have you tried out any of the Maybelline Master Hi-Light blushes? What do you think of this shade?
