Review: Maybelline Colour Drama Lip Pencils and Master Glaze Blush Sticks

Tuesday, 5 May 2015
Maybelline have really stepped it up with their new releases! I have been obsessed with these new products for a little while and just had to share some swatches and impressions of them with you. I am sure you have all seen the Colour Drama Lip Pencils. It seems like they have been everywhere lately and they have definitely attained a sort of cult status on Instagram. I haven't seen as much about the blush sticks though which is odd because they are just as amazing!
Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Sticks in 10 "Just Pinched Pink" and 20 "Fever" $15.95
I have always been really partial to cream blush formulas because they blend into the skin for a particularly natural look and I'm happy to report that these Blush Sticks live up to that. They have a nice amount of pigmentation that is both hard to overdo and means you don't have to use heaps to build up the colour. They blend nicely and don't set to quickly to allow you to buff the colour in perfectly. As with most cream blushes, they won't last as long as a good powder blush but they do last pretty well, and you can easily touch these up throughout the day thanks to the convenient application. 

Just Pinched is more of a natural, light rosy pink that would suit a wide range of skin tones and be perfect as an everyday blush. You can see from the buffed in swatch it looks extremely natural. Fever is much more of a cool, neon pink but again when you blend it out it looks very understated. Don't be afraid of the Barbie pink in the packaging because it blends to something that is a lot more wearable.

Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in 420 "In With Coral" and 110 "Pink So Chic" $9.95
First of all can we pause to appreciate how amazingly good value these are? I got both of these on sale for as little as $6 too which I think is an absolute bargain. As the name suggests, these lip pencils have a very velvety texture that isn't glossy, but isn't quite matte either. They also wear very well and are incredibly easy to apply thanks to the pointed pencil shape. While it might be a bit of a pain to sharpen these, I think the precise point is ample pay off for that small inconvenience. Furthermore, some of the other shades are a lot more frosty but these don't have any shimmer which I usually prefer in my lipsticks. In With Coral is a surprisingly flattering coral shade, even on my pale skin, with just enough pinky undertones to make it more wearable than other corals. In my opinion, Pink So Chic is a bit misnamed as I would classify it more as a berry purple shade. While it is a little harder to pull off, I still use it as an every day shade applied lightly beneath a lipbalm or I top it with a pink lipgloss to brighten it up a bit.

So there you have two of the shades from this insanely popular new range of lip pencils. It feels like everywhere you look you see these and I can definitely understand why they are so popular. They come in a great range of colours, have a lovely formula and are insanely cheap. Which shades are you going to pick up or which ones do you already have that I simply have to try?

Stay Rosy.
