Maybelline Master Glaze is definitely one of the new kids on the block. Other than NYC, I haven’t seen a blush stick carried in drugstores in a very long time. So my ears perked up a little when I found out these were being launched for Spring 2014.
Master Glaze blushes are packed in black tubes with a clear cap and the color of the label corresponds with the color of the blush stick. Remove and you will see the blush dispenses by a twist up bottom.
Only complaint I have are the bar code labels that were used to seal the top to the bottom. You cant twist to break the little seal (or at least I couldn’t), I had to remove the little barcode label altogether. And with removing labels comes adhesive being left on the cap, which I hate.
Most important thing you should know about these blushes? NO SMELL (woooooo!!!)
The formula of the Master Glaze is super smooth and easy to apply. But as a warning, don’t get heavy-handed and don’t twist the product all the way up to apply or your blush stick might break, like one of mine did.
The texture of Master Glaze is creamy and all the blushes have a semi-matte finish with hints of a silver microglitter that is not really clear until you remove the blush from your face. With exception to Warm Nude, the presence of glitter is barely there.
The blushes have a nice staying power, I got 8 hours but as a regular reminder, I use primer and cannot live without it. All of the blushes with exception to Warm Nude are well pigmented, and even it will work better on lighter skintones.
Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Sticks retail for $8.99 each. Availability is popping up in a lot of Rite Aids around the country, but not in Mississippi yet.
