Lookie Lookie, look what I got today! It’s been a while since I featured some drugstore beauty finds, but something caught my eye when I was at my local pharmacy a few days ago. I saw these two cute-looking highlighter sticks from Maybelline and I couldn’t resist. With all the highlighter buzz and trends nowadays which are mostly pricey, who couldn’t resist the cheap drugstore Maybelline Master Strobing (0.67 oz: $9.99) Illuminating Highlighter? Let’s take a look at how they compare to other high-end and big name highlighter brands nowadays.
At first glance, I seem to love the shades of these highlighters even if there’s only two shades released. One is a pearly shimmer and the other one is more of a golden nude. Not sure how they applied or what the texture is because you can’t really try them in the store, unlike Sephora or Ulta. They sorta look dry and powdery but NOPE, they’re not. They’re actually super creamy and they apply smoothly.
The shimmer of these Maybelline Master Strobing Sticks is very subtle or natural but also very buildable. They’re non-drying and there’s no fallout. They’re so creamy that they’re actually better than some other highlighter sticks out there. In fact, I was really impressed at the quality of the formula. To be honest, they feel like high-end highlighters. I love it.
Judging from the aisle scenario where I spotted these strobing products, it looks like people seem to love these strobing sticks because mine were practically the last ones left. Hmmm, I also saw the Maybelline Master Strobing Liquid, which may be reviewed here soon. And hmmm, I really need to do another serious exploration of my local drugstore from now on, for sure.
Bottom line, I LOVE these highlighter sticks and I highly recommend them, you better grab one now because the quality is unbeatable, the shimmer is great, and they beat the popular brands, on top of that, they’re pretty much easy to use and easy to find. The only problem is good luck finding them in stock and if you find one, you’re gonna wish them in hundred different shades. Because honestly, you can only wonder why are these so cheap?
The Maybelline Master Strobing stick is available at Target, Walgreens, Amazon, Ulta, plus some other drugstores nationwide.
Song of the day: Sia, Cheap Thrills.
