Ever since Kylie Jenner’s infamous lip color became all the rage, I’ve made it a point to make mauve a lot more visible in my makeup bag. I mean, I already see a lot of it on my red wine corks, might as well make it a part of my makeup routine, right?
What I love most about testing drugstore brands is being able to find such awesome quality/payoff for a bargain. Underestimating makeup you can find at your local Duane Reade is totally a thing, and many think that a hefty price tag translates to “good makeup”. Obviously Maybelline’s Color Elixir Lip Gloss that GaYoung RAVED about proved that theory wrong, and even 7 months later my NYX Butter Gloss still lives in my work bag to this day. Same goes for these Maybelline babies, check ’em out below!
LDiva did a quick prep with the Holy Grail of all foundations,
Here, LDiva combined the two blushes,
first patting on the Master Glaze and then pressing over with the Master Hi-Light.
She also patted Master Glaze onto my lips for a naturally pink lip.
As you can see, the two products are NOT camera-shy at all and are well-pigmented. They blend awesomely together, where the Master Glaze served as the rich mauve foundation and the Master Hi-Light perfected the look with its lightweight and luminous-sheen formula. Can you say partners-in-crime?
WHAT I LOVE MOST about these blushes is how versatile they are. The Master Hi-Light is more of a palette versus a single-colored blush. Not only can you receive the perfect mauve color by blending all four shades together, but you can even use each strip of color individually. For instance, the dark mauve and purple can double as an eyeshadow, while the sheer shimmery pink is perfect for highlighting cheekbones, brow bones, etc. On the other hand, the Master Glaze can also be used as a cream eyeshadow or a lippie like LDiva used on me here.
The only thing I would watch out for is the longevity of the Master Glaze, as it tends to wear off easily especially out in the hot sun. Thankfully it’s as small as a lipstick tube and is ultra portable for touchups.
So Maybelline, we’re sending out XO’s to you. Kudos for two blushes that make a kick-ass combo perfect for all the selfies I’ll be taking on my GNOs this summer.
