Nude Rebellion and Barely Pink are the two limited edition Master Glaze blush sticks from Maybelline’s Spring 2014 Dare To Go Bare collection. I purchased mine from CVS for $8.99 each.
I’d describe Nude Rebellion as a warm peachy beige and Barely Pink as a warm pink. Both colors have a shimmery sheen and no chunky glitter.
These are the first Master Glaze sticks that I’ve tried and I’ve got to say that the pigmentation and blendability are impressive. You can dot a little bit on and blend for a lighter color payoff or go full blast for a stronger, more opaque cheek color. If you wanted to you could definitely sheer either of the colors out for a glowy highlighting effect instead of a bolder blush color.
The Maybelline blush sticks have a very soft and creamy consistency and feel extremely lightweight. They dry down and feel smooth to the touch on the skin and don’t leave a sticky residue behind, unlike the Stila Convertible Colors if you’re familiar with those.
I really like the Master Glaze blush sticks and think they’re quite possibly some of the best drugstore creme blushes available but, personally, I don’t mind a bit of stickiness and still prefer the Stila creme blushes for their colors and dewier finish.
