Maybelline launched a couple of makeup products last month. I was confused what to pick and what not to, well I am sucker for palettes so Maybelline Facestudio Master Blush Color & Highlight Kit went straight in to my cart. However the price made me weigh the decision twice, but there was an offer going on and I got a good deal.
Packaging is simple plastic palette with clear lid. I would have appreciated a mirror and applicator at this price to be honest. The palette is almost 1,000 Rs and too flimsy in comparison. However you get 13.5 gm of total product which means each pan holds 3.5 gm (approx) of product which isn’t bad.
Shade – The palette has 3 blushes and 1 highlighter. 2 of the blushes (Peach & cool toned pink) are matte and one has slight shimmer that doesn’t show up on the skin that much. Highlighter is beautiful champagne gold color. It isn’t too warm but warm enough to not look ashy or frosted on medium-deeper complexions. Please note that the swatches shown in the picture below are only one swipe of color, I haven’t gone over any of them.
Texture & Formula – Honestly after trying Maybelline Fit Me blushes i wasn’t too hopeful. However the texture of all the 4 powder products in the pan is very smooth & blendable. The two lighter shades (in the middle) also show up nicely on my complexion which obviously took me by surprise. The darker shade is beautiful and has a sheen to it. Highlighter is a bit strong but you can easily handle it and use as per your liking.
Formula of Maybelline Facestudio Master Blush Color & Highlight Kit is smooth even of the matte blushes. None of them feel powdery or gritty. The apply & blend easily.
Pigmentation – All the shades are decently pigmented. I have to layer up the lighter shades – peach & cool toned pink on my face atleast twice to get desired color. Darker shade gives intense color payoff in single sweep.
Maybelline Facestudio Master Blush Color & Highlight Kit is priced at Rs 925, available online HERE

I am kind of happy with the Maybelline Facestudio Master Blush Color & Highlight Kit. The palette is great for travelling as it has 3 different color options to choose from along with a highlighter. Price is definitely a con as well as the lighter shades in the middle.
