Maybelline Fairy Highlight Illuminating Powder Takes On Purple and Rainbows

All that unicorn makeup trending isn’t over yet as Maybelline FaceStudio Master Fairy Highlight Illuminating Powder takes center stage with two new highlighting shades. There’s not a whole lot of special about the rainbow shade of Maybelline Fairy Highlight Illuminating Powder because well, let’s face it everyone has done it to death. Ulta, Wet n Wild, you name it and some brand has created a rainbow inspired highlighter. Honestly, the thought of Maybelline embracing the trend never crossed my mind so, it came as great surprise they did a rainbow highlighter.

But wait there’s more.

Not only did they do a rainbow highlighter shade, brace yourselves purple lovers, they also launched a shade called Exclusive Purple which as you may have guessed is purple! Is it weird I want it because it’s purple? When I was a kid and someone asked me my favorite color I’d promptly reply pink. Weird because I was quite the tom boy but my sister, my sister was always a lover of purple and I guess it rubbed off on me some because nowadays I’ll either reply with purple or peach. Yeah, I jump from one extreme to the next don’t I?

Anyway, Maybelline Fairy Highlight Illuminating Powder sure is an interesting drugstore pick. Each of these is $9.99 and available now at Ulta.com, target.com, and launching soon at drugstores.

    The rainbow one doesn’t look “rainbow” enough to me if that makes sense lol. But the purple is pretty.

      I agree! It’s much too pale – I want colours with more punch/pigment. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have to say I want both, because they’re rainbow and they’re purple! I do have a lilac-y highlighter sample I’d scored somewhere and barely use it, since I usually wear glasses and don’t know what do with highlighter, but when these go on clearance in about six months, if I can find one I’ll probably get it.

    Purple is my fav color. The highlight looks like it would be a nice eye shadow colors.
