Maybelline Just Pinched Pink (10) Master Glaze Glisten Blush Stick ($8.99 for 0.24 oz.) is a medium, rosy pink with soft, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. Tarina Tarantino Parasol (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, powder. Chanel Revelation (63) (P, $38.00) is lighter. theBalm Houndstooth (P, $22.00) is slightly darker, powder. See comparison swatches.

The Master Glaze formula is supposed to give cheeks a β€œdewy and gently glazed” look with β€œthe sheerest color.” The texture is moderately creamy, so it glides across the skin easily, but it can sometimes feel a little oily on the skin. It never fully dries down, so there’s dewy sheen that straddles the line between luminous and oily. You can minimize some of the oiliness (and also prolong the wear) by applying translucent setting or finishing powder on top. The color coverage was more buildable than it was “the sheerest color,” though it can easily be worn as a sheer pop of rosy pink as it is very blendable, and the color wore well for six hours before there was noticeable fading. It doesn’t build up to truly opaque color, though, as it takes a fairly thick layer to do so, which just doesn’t wear or feel right as a blush (very slippery and seems to look patchy within an hour).

I’ve read several really negative reviews of this one, but your swatches (which I rely on more than any others!) look pretty good. I love the color, and after trying one of rhe LE shades, I’m fond of the formula, so this will find its way home with me. At least it’s permanent, so I’ll probably wait for some type of sale.

I’m looking for a non-powder formula for Summer, when I have to reapply sunscreen several times a day, so the wear-time isn’t necessarily a bad thing for my purposes. I was planning to go with my Multiples, but I like the less expensive option, since I plan to use it more often. Also, if I’m out, I won’t feel as bad if I lose it, LOL!

Most of the negativity has been about it being too “oily looking”, and not pigmented enough, so I was expecting it too be more of a highlighter. However, I think this may be just enough color for everyday looks.

I had a similar idea, and was thinking this would be great for the beach, picnics, pool, etc. Like you said, you’ll be reapplying sunscreen and could touch up then anyway. Also I’d be in tears if I took a NARS multiple and lost it, got sand in it, etc but with this, oh well, lots more at the drugstore and I probably have CVS extra bucks too! lol

This one looks very pretty on you! These blush sticks turned out to be prettier than I was expecting. I just wish they wore a little better.

I love the color, very feminine. I’m actually ok with my blushes fading a bit in time since I have a lot of redness that tends to pick through my foundation at the end of the day anyway. I will probably end up picking this one up if I find it on sale.

Wearability as in how long they wear or the kind of color? Tarte Cheek Stains are better from what I remember, but it’s been awhile since I’ve tested any.

It’s a pretty colour! Pretty much alike to everything else out on the market, so if I did like Maybelline products, I’d probably just skip on this anyway.

I’m not sure what it is about this shade but it blends into my skin tone till it’s barely there for some reason when I sheer it out. lol It reads very nude on me at that level.

I do love the Coral Sheen and Pink Fever shades, as when I sheer it down to my level it still there on my pale skin. πŸ˜‰

the blush does’t do it for me, but your picture makes me happy i found snow peach at the store last week! it reminded me i need to get it out and wear it! it’s still in the package at the bottom of my purse! oops.

This is a really, really lovely colour on you, Christine! I’m not sure about the ‘glaze’ thing though… I feel like I would always be using the translucent powder, thereby defeating the purpose of this blush :-P. It is very pretty, though.

With a lil’ translucent powder, you can take down some of the shine but not all of it, but I don’t know if it’s a step that one should need to take!

Been enjoying the ‘Plums Up’ Master Glaze, and based on what I see here, I’ll love this one!! Thank you so much for such wonderfully comprehensive reviews!

Looks great on you! I have super dry skin, do you think it’d work for me? I’ve heard that it’s not very hydrating?
