Recently I created a poll to see what you, my dear readers wanted to see more of on the blog. Many of you answered that you wanted more reviews on drugstore products so I’ve been investigating drugstore brands and new launches. Today I have for you Maybelline Face Studio Master Hi-Light bronzers and blushes. There are four blush combinations for natural-looking color and illumination and two bronzer combinations for a balanced bronze glow.
Although I love my high-end brands, I like to save money too and I’m delighted that Maybelline’s newest products are giving more expensive brands a run for their money (literally). The new Face Studio Master Hi-Light bronzers and blushes are a great example of this. There are two bronzer shades; light bronze and deep bronze as well as four blush shades; Nude, Pink Rose, Coral and Mauve.
These multi-toned mosaic blushes have a unique technology comprised of ultra-light pigments that provide a natural luminosity: the perfect balance between color and illumination. The result is a light-boosting blush with very subtle shimmer making them perfect for drier skin types or us over 40 women. These blushes are meant to be swirled together for a radiant glow. They are highly pigmented and even last for a good 8 hours.
Coral is a mix of shimmering beige, shimmering gold, matte peach and matte coral. Applied I would say this is more peach than coral but it is very pretty and natural.
Pink Rose is a combination of shimmering white, shimmering pale pink, matte medium pink and a matte dark rose. They all blend together for a pretty pop of pink.
The packaging is a plastic compact with a clear flip top and a brush in the bottom compartment. The brush is useless but then so are the ones that usually come with higher priced blushes.
Maybelline Face Studio Master Hi-Light blushes are fragrance free, non-comedogenic and suitable for all skin types. They retail for around $8.49 but I got mine at Walgreen’s on a buy-one-get-one-half-off. Available at drugstores nationwide.
Bottom Line: I’m extremely impressed with the Maybelline Face Studio Master Hi-Light blushes; they blend easily, have plenty of pigment and impart a nice glow. Next time you’re at the drug or grocery store, make sure to take a look. I think I’m going back for more colors!
