I love the look of an almost barley there face of make up, but with a vibrant kick of blusher. A friend of mine always used to rock this look, and I remember thinking she looked so stunningly pretty and fresh faced. Usually when I try the same thing I just end up looking more sweaty post gym face… not that I’ve stepped foot in one in a while.
The only problem that I’ve had with cream blushers in the past, is that they always seem to move the layers of carefully applied make-up underneath and often wear off quickly. Still I’m the ever enthusiastic make-up dabller, and yes, if there’s a new product to try I’m on board. So, when I saw these new Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick’s I had to pick up a couple.
I was initially attracted to the Coral Sheen 30 Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick, which feeds my growing coral addiction, but from the pictures I actually don’t think the colour translates to the skin so well. It looks vibrant and cool in the packaging, but when it’s on the face I think it appears a little more red in tone. It applies extremely softly, and whilst it is a stick blusher it’s different from a cream blusher in formula. This is powdery in finish, but it’ still easy to blend once it’s on the skin.
Next up I bagged myself Just-Pinched Pink 10 Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick, which doesn’t really look like much in the packaging but I actually really love the shade of this once it’s on your skin. It’s a very soft pretty pink, that really looks more like a shade of lipstick than a blush, but perhaps that’s what makes this so pretty. They both have an iridescent glowing finish to them, so if you get spots or blemishes on your cheeks I would probably steer clear of this blusher as it’s going to highlight imperfections. I put on more than necessary so that it would show up on camera, but even the lightest touch of this looks barely there pretty.
I think these blushers tick the box in the barely there ‘fresh’ faced category. The best part is you can pop these in your bag for all day loveliness.
