Maybelline Master Hi-Light Hi-Lighting Blush Review

I was pretty close to placing an order at Sephora's website for some of the highlighting products people have been raving about lately, but I figured I should see what the drugstore has to offer first! The first drugstore highlighter I've been trying is the Maybelline Master Hi-Light Hi-Lighting Blush which can be found at most drugstores for around $8.

This product comes in 6 different shades (4 highlighting blushes and 2 highlighting bronzers). Here I have the shade Mauve 40.


This product comes in a round compact with a mirror and a small brush underneath the top layer. The pan has a gorgeous mosaic pattern of gold, mauve, and pinks that all have a shimmery finish. I almost didn't even want to use the product and mess up the pretty pattern!

When I use the product, I swill my brush inside, mixing all of the colors together. This creates a gorgeous golden-mauve shade which looks really natural on my face. This shimmer is noticeable, but it isn't chunky and glittery. It is finely milled enough to give a nice sheen without looking too crazy.




Here's a heavy swatch and a blended swatch on my skin:


My favorite way to apply this product is on my cheek bones, down the center of my nose, and on my cupid's bow to give my skin a healthy glow. On my skin this lasts the whole day. I don't notice any transferring or fading. The texture is smooth, and it doesn't feel any different from any of the other powders I use on my face.

I see where Maybelline was going with the "Hi-lighting Blush" name, but I think this is way too shimmery to even fit in the blush category! I think they could have just named this a highlighter. But I really like this product! It is a gorgeous highlight on my skin, and they have more shades, so everyone can find their perfect shade. I can't find anything wrong with this product. I can definitely see myself trying out more shades in this range- maybe Light Bronze, and Pink Rose! I'm using this product in an upcoming tutorial, so stay tuned to see it on my face!

What is your favorite drugstore highlighter?

  1. I have this in pink and totally forgot about it! I don't think I used it but once so I need to locate it in my collection and bust it out again! I agree, too shimmery to really be labeled blush.
