I am back with another new Maybelline launch! I usually love Maybelline products, and have their foundation, powder, lipsticks, liners, blushes – everything I think!! They have a very versatile range of products and very good quality for their price, which I appreciate being a student. So, I get pretty excited when Maybelline launches something new, and this time I got the “Maybelline Face Studio Master Hi-Light in shade #60 Deep Bronze,” which is a highlighting bronzer. It was surprising to me that it is a highlighter as well as a bronzer, so I wanted to try it out! The range has two bronzers – Light Bronze, and Deep Bronze, as well as 4 blushes – Nude, Pink Rose, Coral and Mauve.
Light-boosting blushes and bronzers. Because those in the know don’t over glow. Each light-boosting blush and bronzer palette has an expert balance of 4 shades + shimmer for a natural glow. Skin goes soft-lit with zero glitz.
- 4 Blush Combinations for natural-looking color and illumination.
- 2 Bronzer Combinations for a balanced bronze glow.
- Fragrance Free. Non-comedogenic. Suitable for all skin types.
For Best Results:
Brush over all shades in the palette and gently sweep over cheekbones, brow bones, and temples, or anywhere light naturally touches the face. Expert Tip: Blend all 4 shades together or use each one individually. Use shimmer shades for an increased highlighting effect under brow bones and darker shades below cheekbones for additional contouring and definition.

It comes in a plastic packaging, and is in a pressed form. The packaging is sort of like a pressed powder – with the product on top, and there is another compartment below it which has a mirror and a small brush. The mirror is actually good quality and the brush is not great, but it can be handy in emergencies, or during touch ups where you can’t take a brush along. The brush isn’t that soft, but I like its shape – I can use it in different ways to apply the product.
My Take on Maybelline Face Studio Master Hi-Light in Deep Bronze:
Coming to the product itself, I simply love it! I didn’t really use bronzers because I’m already tan, but I thought I would use some in the wedding given that it had shimmer. The bronzer is a multi-tonal bronzer with 4 shades ranging from light to dark, which you can wear separately or swipe them all together. They are scent-free, and don’t clog pores. It has a really fine-milled texture and doesn’t feel powdery at all. It has a great wear time of more than 8 hours – that’s how long I wore it at a wedding, and it still looked radiant at the end of it.
This bronzer gives a very beautiful golden-bronze glow and doesn’t look cheap or sparkly, but really nice and glowy. It doesn’t look muddy at all. For those who wear matte foundations and still want a glowy look, this is perfect for it.
I thought earlier that a bronzer would look bad if applied on cheekbones, but somehow it looked very nice. I used a lighter hand while using on the cheekbones though. It reflected light perfectly and looked great! I also used it under the cheekbones and it didn’t look weird at all. The great thing about the multiple tones is that the lighter tones can be separately used for highlighting and shimmer, and the darkest color (brown) is matte so you can use that as a matte bronzer, if you wish.
The colors can be used separately using a small brush. Please note that the shimmer is subtle, not a lot, so this is not like a shimmer brick or anything, just a multi-purpose bronzer. I think the color “Light Bronze” would be perfect for lighter skin tones. I think the blushes would be perfect as highlighting blushes for evening and party wear. Also, it does not look over the top in photographs, even with flash if you don’t use too much.
