Today I have a review on a wonderful new multipurpose product by Maybelline. I love a radiant highlight and a nice blush for color and contour but it's not always easy finding shades that compliment each other. Applying a gorgeous blush and overshadowing it with a highlight in a different underlying color is redundant so products like the Master Hi-Lighting Blush are quite useful.
The blush I have is called Rose Pink and it has an interesting woven pattern that is embedded with strips of dark and light shimmery pinks as well as a few strips of silver highlight for good measure. If you apply the pink colors on their own you end up with a pretty frosted pink blush. When the silver color is applied individually there is more highlight than color and the high points of the cheeks are beautifully illuminated.
I swatched the colors separately but they also produce a lovely effect when blended together.
The blushes come in six illuminating combinations including: Light Bronze, Coral, Nude and Deep Bronze. Some of the compacts are more of a highlight-bronzer duo but I prefer my highlight blended with my blush and my bronzer free of shimmer for contouring. The shades are not completely accurate on Maybelline's website, the colors are actually more vibrant and appealing in person.
The blush also comes with a brush that is hidden in a compartment underneath although the flat shape is not idea for application so I don’t use it.
With a fluffy face brush I sweep the blush-highlight duo over my cheeks, down the center of my nose and anywhere light naturally touches the skin. It can also be used as shimmery eye shadow to highlight the brow bone when paired with a good primer. When first applied the color is very subtle but it can be layered and built upon for more saturation.
Pink Rose is a very soft while providing an alluring natural flush that looks lovely for summer. You can find these blushes at most drug stores and they retail for $7.94 each at Walmart.
