I’m pretty sure after using Maybelline Molten Peach Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter you could see my highlighter from outer space but for once I didn’t care. This gorgeous golden orange-y peach holds a spot of honor in my makeup collection. And let’s be honest, that’s saying something right? I’m not really a highlighter type of girl. I love sparkly, shimmer, glow-y blushes but highlighters don’t really do it for me. I realize that I have a fuller face and sometimes highlighters accentuate all the bad things about that versus bring out the good. So, as pretty as they are I tend to avoid using them.
Another reason I avoid using them is the fact I am so heavy-handed. I can’t apply blush without going full on clown activation mode. You can imagine how happy I get with highlighter! I just can’t get down the right amount to look subtly glow-y. Instead I end up with see me from the moon highlighter.
I can’t say I’m minding all that much with Maybelline Molten Peach Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter. It is so stunning!
Maybelline Molten Peach Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter ($7.99) is light golden peach with slight orange coast and gorgeous gold sparkle. You can see why I love it right!? I was a little concerned about the sparkle and for good reason it really does have a super sparkly finish so if you hate larger particles of shimmer (dare I say glitter!? That’s what it looked like!) you might want to avoid this one as there is plenty of sparkle here that will give you a disco ball finish no matter how lighter you apply this highlighter.
If you’re fair you can probably get away with using this as a blush but you won’t want to since it does contains so much sparkle. I used it in conjunction with an orange-y blush for this review and as you an see I went a little overboard! The sparkle is very noticeable and in the sunlight I look like Edward Cullen.
The texture is velvety but does have a chunkier pigment-like consistency which had a flecks of highlighter sprinkling all over the place when I swiped my brush into it. Use a light, light touch to avoid this. It applies really well and adheres to skin in a very smooth, even finish. I tend to not wear highlighters for a number of reasons but another pet peeve of mine is the fact they can accentuate pores I don’t even have and just make my skin look less than smooth. This formula had a very smooth appearance and applied very easily. The wear time is outstanding. The glow just lasts and lasts and lasts for hours. I can get through an entire day and still have a gorgeous glow on my skin without any fading issues.
Overall, this was an outstanding pick up for me! I’m going to grab a backup before it disappears for some reason or another. I love the shade and I think it’ll get a nice work out this summer!
