What NOT to Buy | Maybelline Master Holographic Prismatic Highlighter in Opal

Now, you know I love a good highlighter. Never a day goes by where I’m not wearing any – even on ‘no makeup’ days I can’t be without it. So when I saw that we finally had the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter I’d been seeing all over American YouTube influencer’s videos, I ordered myself one from Superdrug Online. Whilst I was browsing I also saw this ‘holographic’ highlighter from Maybelline and it was part of an offer on the website. I hadn’t and still haven’t heard anything about this online, so I was very intrigued.

I’ll get straight to the point here – this product is AWFUL. I’m actually shocked at the terrible quality of it. Firstly, it’s not holographic – not even close! It has a slight lilac shift to it but it is mainly just white.

When I began to swatch it, dust was flying all around me – chalky, crumbly flat-toned dust. The solid product was literally disappearing before my eyes and into the air and onto the floor. I gave it the benefit of doubt and tried to swatch the half ton of product now on my finger and barely anything came off! It had actually congealed on my finger tip and just wouldn’t transfer.

Next, I tried it on my face with my usual highlighting brush and oh my goodness, that was a complete disaster too! Completely unwearable and very unattractive!

Don’t even consider buying this ‘highlighter’ – trust me. I’m really disappointed in Maybelline to be honest with you as their products are usually very high quality and very pretty. I will be reviewing the Master Chrome highlighter over the next week though and that is a totally different story – absolutely gorgeous! Keep you eyes peeled for that one.

Have you got yourself this product? Or do you have another did highlighter which is similar?
