Maybelline Blush & Bronze Palettes

First up, the Master Bronze Palette. There are four shades – I don’t think by the way that these shades are suitable for paler tones because they’re very strongly pigmented and no matter how lightly you pass your brush, they’re quite deeply toned – two ‘bronze’ and two ‘highlight’ but they’re all quite shimmery so I think you can do as you please. In my mind, this is ‘end of the holiday’ bronzer, not beginning!

In the Master Blush Palette, there is one highlighter and three pink toned blush shades. I’m particularly interested in the final shade, a plum/pink colour that is actually quite hard to find. I think most skin tones will get something good from this, including deeper tones.

As you can see, they both come to life in the swatch. This is, as usual, one pass from a sponge applicator, so that’s a heck of a lot of pigment for one go. I’m really impressed with these – I don’t have a price but Maybelline palettes usually hover around the £7.99 mark and if that’s the case, these are great value. L’Oreal clearly has a blush focus right now – I didn’t get to try the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Palette and wasn’t excited enough about it to go out and buy it for myself. I probably wouldn’t have bought the Maybelline ones either, which just goes to show that sampling is really important for perception changing.
