Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Sticks have broken my heart. HaHaHa For me, GLAZE is for cakes, doughnuts and walls. Not your face! A LOT of people like this product. A LOT!!! However, I don't. I think what I dislike most is that they SHINE too much and the color just sits on the cheeks instead of blending in with your makeup.
I was excited to hear that Maybelline was coming out with blush sticks (again). I was a HUGE fan of their Maybelline Express Blush Sticks. I loved them so, I stockpiled the color Honey (yes, that's a snapshot that reveals part of my stash). I thought the current Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Sticks would be the same! To me, they aren't.
What's to love? Maybelline's blush sticks are compact (purse & traveling), the color easily swipes on your cheeks, the formula is creamy, they're highly pigmented and they're $9.99 (i purchased mine on sale). What's not to love? The current stick only twists up to give you a little over a 1/2" of color (the old stick gave you nearly 1 1/2"...Oh Maybelline... way less product ...really?), the color (to me) doesn't blend in well with the rest of your makeup (it just sits very obviously atop your cheeks), it can be chalky & splotchy (once applied & it dries), and the shine can make oily skin look oilier & emphasize pores, fine lines etc. I wore a primer on my face before applying these. I have dry skin.
For the record, I didn't like Maybelline's bouncy blush either! BOTH of these seem like "play" makeup and I have nothing against drugstore brands. Please compare my (2012) bouncy blush pictures, to the one's here. On the back of your hand, these blushes swatch beautifully. However, when you apply them to your face, it can be a different story. You may like my pictures, but I disliked these so much, I threw both away. HaHaHa I'm happy if these worked for you. I really am! I just think there are much better cream blushes out there.
