Molten Topaz

Maybelline Molten Topaz Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter ($9.99 for 0.24 oz.) is a soft, medium-dark gold with warm, brown undertones and a luminous sheen. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable that was delightfully creamy to the touch, but it was still more loosely pressed (without being powdery), which made it particularly easy to apply with a slew of brushes. For subtle coverage, I’d recommend a light hand and a tapered highlighting brush or a fan brush with a moderate hand. It had opaque coverage–not buildable as described, which was really the only downside to the product–that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with little effort. The finish was the most subtle of all of the highlighters I’ve tried in this formula, which some may prefer and others will lament. On me, this shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

Formula Overview

It’s supposed to have a “chrome effect” that can be applied “lightly for a subtle glow” or built up for a “bold melted metal look.” The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable that was delightfully creamy to the touch, but it was still more loosely pressed (without being powdery), which made it particularly easy to apply with a slew of brushes. For subtle coverage, I’d recommend a light hand and a tapered highlighting brush or a fan brush with a moderate hand. It had opaque coverage–not buildable as described, which was really the only downside to the product–that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with little effort. The shades typically wore for around eight hours on me.

Have you added something to your skincare routine? Because your skin looks absolutely flawless. If it’s the highlighter then sign me up! Either way, you’re skin looks even better than usual and you’ve already got gorgeous skin.

This could be a super brilliant bronzing highlight or highlighting bronzer! I’m in love with it having a truer than life JLo glow!

I’m definitely picking this up, the subtleness of it and the sheen are right up my alley. And the color seems like it’ll be really nice on me.
