Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick - Warm Nude

I've recently reviewed Maybelline's Master Glaze Blush Stick in Coral Sheen (link), and today I have the shade Warm Nude* ($11.99 CAD/6.8g) to share with you! While I loved Coral Sheen as a blush, I wasn't blown away by the shade Warm Nude. However, I do think that this shade makes a great highlighter!

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. This packaging isn't very chic or sophisticated, but I still do like this playful side! I've tried blending out this cream 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. I find the shade Warm Nude to kind of disappear on my cheeks, only leaving behind a shimmery/glitter look with a small hint of colour. When I swatch this blush on my hand, it looks quite pigmented. However, it just doesn't show up nicely on my cheeks for whatever reason. Warm Nude is a copper shade with golden shimmer/glitter, and I find that it works best used as a cream highlighter on my cheekbones. This shade actually pairs beautifully with a few of my favourite powder blushes such as NARS' Luster and Benefit's Rockateur.

As you can see, when worn as a blush this shade just melts into my skin and leaves only a small trace of colour. I don't think that this shade would work well as a blush on darker skin tones. However, Warm Nude is a beautiful coppery highlighter, and I do love it for that purpose. If you like a very light application of blush, this might work wonderfully for you. Have you tried any of Maybelline's new Master Glaze Blush Sticks?

  4. I haven't tried these, I've kind of seen mixed reviews on them so I'm not sure if I will. I do love the idea of a stick blush though, I really like the Tarte ones that I've tried.

    1. I think they're good, but I would definitely recommend waiting til they're on sale! I think they're priced a bit highly for a drugstore blush!
