Maybelline Master Hi-Light Blush in Nude

So many new things at the drugstore! Master Hi-Light “Hi-Lighting Blush” is one of those things. I’m an English instructor, so can we please talk about this SILLY spelling? I hate it and the late ’80s style packaging, but that’s just me. πŸ™‚ Onto the product!

The quilted design is really cute once the ugly lid is popped. πŸ˜‰ As for the product itself, I was very impressed with the texture. It is soft and finely milled, and goes on easy. Even though this is supposed to be a highlighting blush, I can’t wear this as a blush because it is just too light. If you’re very pale, this will probably work as a blush, but for me it is definitely only a highlight; I also like it layered with matte blushes.

Swatches in different lighting

Although it looks like a peachy pink in the pan, it swatches more like a rose gold shade. Rose gold fans will delight in knowing that this is very similar to Laura Mercier’s Spellbound Illuminator. It is a little darker, but let’s be honest: nobody is going to point this out when it’s on your skin! If you missed out on Spellbound, this is a good substitute.

I don’t see myself purchasing other shades in the line, but this is a great drugstore powder highlighter, which isn’t always the easiest thing to find, especially in this color.
