I enjoy taking an hour to do a full face of makeup as much as the next beauty obsessed girl, but sometimes that’s just not on the cards. Friday is my gym day because it gets me ready for the weekend physically and mentally – who doesn’t want to punch the air in kickboxing and get some frustrations out after a long week.

Because I often have plans after the gym to get dinner, spend time with friends, or attend art openings, carrying my entire makeup collection around New York City just won’t do.

But, something caught my eyes

Maybelline has recently introduced many new products in their permanent makeup line, and the Maybelline Master Glaze Blush has caught my eye because of the sleek, easy to carry packaging.

I’m usually not a huge fan of cream blushes because I think cream blushes can be fussy to apply and can feel uncomfortable on my cheeks (read sticky, ew). However, after trying and loving the Maybelline Fit Me Stick Foundation, I decided it was time to try the Master Glaze Blush in Just Pinched Pink.

The price tag on the Maybelline Face Studio Master Glaze blushes is rather high at $8.99 for 0.24 oz, but as you’ll read below, I forgive this negative as the blush itself is high quality.

What I think about Just Pinched Pink

Maybelline Just Pinched Pink

Maybelline Just Pinched Pink is a light, peachy, rose-pink with very subtle, micro shimmer. It applies as cream but transforms into a powder finish (hence, the longevity).

This Master Glaze blush is a hybrid between subtle highlighter and a blush – the shimmer is light enough to be barely noticeable but strong enough to define the tops of the cheekbones. And because I’m quite serious about my gym-day, this blush applies easily and no brushes are needed – I simply swipe an angled line of the blush on each cheek, think pretty pink war paint, and blend in with my fingers.

This stick blush is unbelievably blendable, and pigmentation can be easily built up by dotting the stick where you want to add more color. It also looked great even after eight hours of wear, something that a powder product usually fails to do on my skin.

All in all, can you tell I love this blush?

I highly recommend you try it (you’ll find that you’ll be pleasantly surprised!). Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried this glaze blush yet, and if you recommend any other products in the Maybelline Master collection.

Stay Pretty!
