The Maybelline Master Chrome highlighters are the drugstore highlighters that everyone has been raving about lately and I finally decided to join the party. At first I was afraid that the highlighters were way to dark for my fair skin tone, but it turned out completely fine for me.
Even though these are drugstore highlighters, they are still up there in price in my opinion (€14,99) so I decided to wait for a 1+1 promotion at Kruidvat (Dutch drugstore similar to CVS).
Originally I only bought ‘Molten Gold’ and ‘Molten Rose Gold’ (these are the only two shades that are available in the Netherlands as we speak) but then Maybelline came out with with two new metallic highlighters of which ‘Molten Peach’ was one. I bought that one via Amazon and shipped it to the Netherlands through Shipito but that didn’t end that well, haha (see the picture below).
Anway, it’s still a beautiful highlighter! The packaging is a little bit different than the other two. I think that’s probably because the Molten Peach highlighter is from the USA and the other two might have a European packaging.
Aren’t they beautiful?
Swatches of Molten Rose Gold, Molten Gold and Molten Peach.
Even though all three shades are called metallic, to me only Molten Peach really is that metallic. The formula of the Molten Rose Gold and Molten Gold seems a little bit less soft but it’s still really creamy though. All three shades have a lot of pigment and the glow they give is amazing!!
Me wearing Molten Rose Gold, Molten Gold and Molten Peach. All three shades can be build up from intens to blinding (you’ll have to go in really light handed to make it subtle. Almost not possible).
So Molten Rose Gold and Molten Gold blend really well into my skin. As you can see, Molten Rose Gold is more light pink on my skin and Molten Gold is really, no surprise, gold. Both work on my skin tone, however I don’t like gold shades on my cool toned skin tone so I love Molten Rose Gold way more and I do have to blend Molten Gold out really well because it tends to be a bit too dark.
Molten Peach is more on the glittery side and is a tiny bit too dark for my skin tone. However, I can pull it off perfectly when I blend it out enough.
All three highlighters catch the light beautifully and stay put the whole day. These highlighters live up to the hype because they are great. My favorite is Molten Rose Gold for sure. I hope that Maybelline will come out with more light shade for fair skin tones because these highlighters belong to my favorite ones out there!
Have you ever tried a Maybelline Master Chrome metallic highlighter?
