I love highlighters so naturally when I saw this one from Maybelline I had to pick one up, this is the Maybelline Master Strobing Stick and it’s available in two shades…
100 Light Iridescent – perfect for fair skin tones
200 Medium Nude glow – medium to darker skin tones
I picked the shade medium nude glow, now I do have fair skin but I really liked the colour and to be honest I think this shade will give my face a nice golden glow.
Straight away upon opening the stick it reminds me of the Benefit Watts Up highlighter stick!
Perhaps a budget friendly alternative at £6.99
I am really impressed with the texture of this stick it goes from a smooth creamy cream to a powder which blends effortlessly into the skin. This is brilliant for people who like me tend to stay away from cream highlighters as I don’t like the stickiness and weight (I’m hoping you know what I mean by that ha ha).
You really don’t need to apply much with this stick, a little goes a long way which is a bonus really as their isn’t much product, a bit of a disappointment I must say.
I love the way this looks, even on my fair skin tone. It gives me a natural healthy golden glow without overdoing it. The best bit about this stick is you can go lightly and blend out loads for a really natural glow, or you can layer it up for more of an intense strobe effect without feeling like a glitter bomb.
Overall I am really impressed with this highlighting stick but I am not sure it will tempt me away from my highlighting powders.
Let me know what you think.
