My Actual Experience with Maybelline Master Chrome Molten Gold Highlighter:

At first Mabelline New York launch, only one shade of Master Chrome Highlighter in India and that is 100 Molten Gold. After that, it added another shade in this metallic highlighter range that is 50 Molten Rose Gold.

I chose Molten Gold because of its very unique shade. It is a metallic gold shade highlighter or you can say it coppery gold colour. This type of shade is best for festive occasions and wedding functions. This shade compliment fair to dusky every Indian skin tone. It gives you a very gorgeous elegant Egyptian Queen Cleopatra like a golden goddess look. Also, any highlighter intensifies our bone structure.

I love this type of metallic highlighter. For me, it is one of the best drugstore highlighters in the budget. It is available online and at any Maybelline counter. Also, you can get a good discount if you purchase online.

How I am Applying this Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter:

I am using this Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter only on special occasions. Because I think it is too loud for daytime or everyday makeup. But I love its warm golden coppery metallic finish. It gives me a perfect golden glow on special occasions.

When I am in a hurry I just dab my finger on it and directly apply on the highest point of my face. But for the perfect glow, I prefer to use a fan brush or any small blending brush. Fan brush and powder highlighter is the best combination for a glowy face. Also, you can use a highlighter brush or wet sponge.

I spray some setting spray or face mist on the brush then apply the highlighter usually where I am applied on my face and nicely blend it with the help of the brush

Tips: When you use wet brush to apply highlighter it gives you maximum glow on your face and also you do not need much product. That prevents wastage of excess product.

I know some of you mainly beginners, think many questions about highlighter in your mind, eg. where I applied highlighter or when I am applying this etc. Here I try to give you all the answers…
