Maybelline Spring 2012: Highlighters

Today's featured products are the new highlighters in Maybelline's Spring 2012 collection.  These caught my eye because of the size and packaging: they are about the same size as the MAC Mineralize Skinfinishes, but a fraction of the price!

Ray of Gold, Blissful Pink

Two colors are available in the collection: a light gold and light pink.

These powders have a wave design through them, which I think is really pretty!  I love when companies put designs in their powders.

As for the quality, I would say these are pretty decent. The pigmentation was good, but not overly so... this is one of those powders that will leave a subtle highlight, not a strong frosty one.  These also aren't as smooth as other powders I've used, but they aren't gritty either.

Overall, I would give them an "average" rating on all counts.  They are nice products to have, but if you are really particular about your highlighting powders, they may not have the smoothness and pigmentation you desire!  I found these for $8-9 at my Rite Aid, but got them on a BOGO 50% Off sale!  If you look around, you should be able to get a discount on them somewhere.

What is your favorite product to highlight with?
