Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick - Coral Sheen

Maybelline has recently released a new line of cream blushes, called the Master Glaze Blush Sticks by Face Studio. Today I have the shade Coral Sheen* ($11.99 CAD/6.8g) to share with you! I've fallen in love with cream blushes over the past year, but I haven't tried out too many blush stick formulas, so I was really excited to try this out. 

"Cheeks go dewy and gently glazed with this portable, creamy blush stick.
Glazed pearls + a shea butter glide provide blendable, natural color and smooth, even application.
Fragrance Free. Non-comedogenic. Suitable for all skin types.

For Best Results:

Glide over cheekbones towards the temple. Blend with fingertips and build for desired color impact.
Expert Tip: Rushed for time? Master Glaze can also be used on eyes or lips for a sheer color glaze wherever you need it." - Maybelline

Maybelline's Master Glaze Blush Sticks come packaged in small colour-coordinated plastic tubes that twist up to reveal the blush. It doesn't look like you get a ton of product in this little stick, but 6.8g will last you quite a while. The shade Coral Sheen is a beautiful shimmery coral-orange blush that just screams Spring to me! Coral Sheen is a very pigmented blush, so a little goes a long way. This formula glides onto my skin nicely, and I've tried blending it out with both my fingers and a stippling brush. I like both methods of application, but I find that the stippling brush gives a slightly more flawless finish.

Maybelline's Master Glaze Blush Stick glides on smoothly, but then it turns slightly powdery in texture. I find that this formula lasts on my cheeks for 5-6 hours, which is okay, but it definitely isn't amazing. I would recommend topping this with a powder blush in a similar shade for a more long-wearing cheek. The shimmer in Coral Sheen is nice and subtle, giving a beautiful glow to my cheeks. 

Overall, I really like the texture of this cream blush, but I do wish that it lasting a bit longer on my cheeks. The shade Coral Sheen is beautifully pigmented, and it blends into my skin very easily. This blush is a bit on the pricier side for a drugstore product, but I'm sure you'll be able to find it on some sort of deal eventually. Have you picked up any of Maybelline's Master Glaze Blush Sticks yet? Are you a fan of blush sticks in general? :)
