Maybelline Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in ‘Molten Gold’

I’m a huge fan of highlighters and the more golden goddess-y / bling all in your face / see me from Mars, the better! Usually reserved for indie or luxury beauty brands, it’s rare to see a quality highlighter from a drugstore brand, save for NYX Cosmetics or Makeup Revolution (which you still can’t usually find at your corner drugstore). So when Maybelline dropped their first Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter, you know I had to have it.

I ordered their first shade ‘Molten Gold’ via Amazon and it got to me in two days. With an already low retail price of $8 and my free prime shipping, I’d say that was a pretty darn good deal. I wasn’t really sure what to expect with the formula since this product is brand new to the Maybelline line. When I first swatched it, I wasn’t blown away by the powdery feel. It reminded me of how the Ofra ‘You Dew You’ and ‘You Glow Girl’ highlighters are, but the product didn’t glide on as smoothly when I took my finger to my arm for a swatch. Aside from that fact, it blended beautifully and definitely lived up to the ‘Master Chrome’ name!

Upcoming Collection: Maybelline New York Summer 2015

Maybelline New York dropped some heart-stopping images on their Instagram this week! I don’t think anyone was expecting any surprises from Maybelline for their Summer 2015 collection, but they definitely blew my expectations out of the water! Read on for some behind the scenes peeks!

I’m not really a fan of traditional drugstore makeup brands. They tend to overlook the needs of their darker skinned fans and focus on the fairer to medium range of the color spectrum. Eyeshadow shades aren’t pigmented enough to show up on my lids. Same issue with sheerer lipsticks. And don’t get me started on foundation and concealer shade selections!

The last thing I was expecting from Maybelline this summer was a bunch of ultra-vivid colors for eyes and lips! I mean just look at those lip pencils. I’m expecting those to make my lips shine bright like a diamond! Based on several sneak peeks posted on Instagram this week, we have an idea of what to expect in drugstores this summer.
