I was a bit skeptical about these when I bought them without sampling first, as there were no testers. They hadn't even hit the shelves yet, I saw a box of newly-launched Maybelline products on the floor at New U.... and I sat on my ankles....and then nobody could stop me!!!
Do they look familiar?
MAC Blush Ombre!
About Maybelline Master Flush Creator
A two-tone blush for a gradation flushed look. Pick up color in one swipe, fit brush to cheek curve and apply gradation color in one stroke.
There are 4 shades, and I picked up 2:
Next To Nude ~ My favorite! It's like having my most favorite MAC Cream Soda (Archies Girl Collection) & Benefit Coralista in one pan.
Tickled Pink ~ This pink is like a combination of MAC Pink Swoon & NARS Angelika.
MAC Blush Ombre Ripe Peach (a cult favorite) & Kindergarten Red
Gosh! I am seeing how similar they look only now at this moment! I wanted to compare the textures and feel of the powders, but I don't know where these are atm. You can have a look at them with the MAC Toledo Collection HERE
Next To Nude
Swatches (deep-light side): Next To Nude, Tickled Pink
Swatches: Next To Nude (bottom), Tickled Pink (top)
I've used both, and:
- the texture is very soft & velvety.
(but be gentle with your brush, coz they are that soft.)
- they are pigmented, and easy to blend.
- they do have fine shimmer, which shows up subtly on the cheeks.
- packaging is very high street. Mirror included on the lid.
Overall, I'm very impressed with these! I think I'm gonna alternate between these two all winter.
Price: Rs.850, each.
The makeup bags in the first pic I got for free! =D
(because I always ask for free gift when I buy more than one product.)
