Master It with Maybelline New York’s new campaign!
Maybelline New York have launched a campaign called Master It. This campaign aims to help all kiwi women master makeup techniques using their master face artistry range. This week I share my thoughts on the products in this range! *This is not a ‘sponsored’ post or anything similar, I have attended an event launching the campaign, and was gifted the products. All opinions are my own.*
Master Makeup Range
Maybelline New York Face Studio Master Strobing Liquid Illuminating Highlighter RRP$16.99 This strobing liquid comes in three shades, Light Iridescent, Medium Nude Glow and Deep Gold. If you really want that glow you can use it on it’s own, personally I find it works best mixed with a primer or foundation. You can also dab it on the high points of your face, just as you would with a powder highlight. While the product itself looks a really intense colour, it actually blends out beautifully to give a gorgeous natural glow.
Superstay Primer RRP$24.99 This primer has one claim; to extend the wear of your makeup. I can definitely vouch for this, the areas I noticed significant improvement were the areas around my nose and t-zone where I can get quite oily. It is very light in consistency, and one pump is enough to cover your whole face. It soaks into the skin like a mouisturiser, and I have been enjoying mixing this with my strobe cream.
Maybelline New York Fit Me Matte & Poreless Foundation RRP$22.99As the name would suggest this foundation claims to be pore minimising and reduce oils to leave your skin looking matte. Personally I find the finish of this foundation a very natural matte. Of course if paired with a strobe base, you still get that luminosity, which I love. It provides medium-high coverage and has great longevity. From what I can see online, this foundation is quickly becoming a cult favourite!
RRP$24.99 I am a huge fan on colour correcting, so it’s no surprise I love this palette. The formula is so creamy and warms up under the heat of your finger, so is easy to use in a hurry. Personally, I don’t really use the two highlight shades on the right, and stick to the first four. You can learn more about colour correcting here.
Master Contour Stick RRP$19.99 Ok I’ll admit, I’m new to the whole contour stick game. on my first try (see below video) I didn’t do a great job. Now I have got the hang of it a bit more, I am in love. Each end twists to reveal a creamy stick, much like a lipstick, one is a contour and one is a highlight. I have the medium shade, which is quite warm, and works great on my fair skin if I’m going for a bronzey look. Personally I’m not a massive fan of the highlight end; it is quite a cool tone shade and a bit too shimmery.
RRP$22.99 This palette contains three bronze shades and a highlight. When I contour I use the coolest shade, next to the highlight. When I bronze I swirl my brush across all three colours, and this creates a stunning colour. I have even been using this palette as an eyeshadow, particularly the highlight which is a tad too gold for my cheeks.
Maybelline New York Face Studio Master Blush & Highlighting Kit RRP$22.99 Much like the bronze palette, you get three shades of blush and a highlight. This highlight is a champagne shade, which looks great on my skin tone. I love the three shades of blush; a plum, a pink and a peach. They make this palette very useable for different looks.
Maybelline Master Strobe Stick RRP$16.99 This strobing stick comes in two shades; Light Iridescent and Medium Nude Glow. You can use this as a stand alone highlight or on your base in place of the strobing cream. Personally I enjoy using it as a highlight before I set my face with powder. It has a really soft creamy formula that’s easy to blend.
Here is my first impression of the makeup in this range:
