Maybelline Come up Trumps With Expertwear Blush in Rose


Forget Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, here's Maybelline and the Half-Strength Coralista. A little packet arrived in my letterbox last week containing the brand's new Expertwear Blush in 77 Rose, €7.49.

Rose it might be named, but it's a light peach with very faint shimmer that really put me in mind of Coralista running at half strength. I know some of you were horrified by the ultra-coral of the Benefit product last week so if you'd like to try the shade but without needing to don yer sunglasses afterwards, then this is ideal, I reckon.

The pan is a generous size, the price-point is great and it also comes in four other shades: peach, rosewood, golden beige and flash plum. The only let-down is the packaging, which is functional, and that's about as nice as I can be about it.


Oh - and the other thing I reckoned it'd be good for? Remember Daniel Chavez's contouring tips last week? This is a great budget alternative to the Smashbox product he recommended.
