I have been sent a whole load of new Maybelline goodies but naturally this is the one I went to first! If it’s highlighter, I am interested! Here’s a look at the new Maybelline Master Strobing Stick in two shades. I have photos and swatches. Enjoy.

So straight away the texture reminds me of Benefit Watt’s Up which is great news for anyone on a budget. It’s a smooth and creamy cream-to-powder affair and I am pretty impressed.

I actually think both shades work pretty well on my fair skin.

I love the way both of these look. You can go lightly and blend out loads for a really natural lit from within glow, or layer up and gently tap into the skin for more of an intense strobe effect. They are pretty versatile. I love that’s there’s no chunkiness or glitter and it leaves a really smooth finish on the skin. As I said earlier, I think they are pretty good budget friendly alternatives to Watt’s Up.

Maybelline Master Strobing Stick is available in the UK here. They are already available in the US here.
