Blush is a good Monday-morning topic. A little colour in the cheeks wakes up a sleepy complexion and makes eyes look brighter, a bit more alert. New mosaic-style Maybelline Master Hi-Light Blush aims to make awake-face happen with a swirl of a brush from palette to apple of the cheek, and deliver a shot of radiance, too. Add a strong cup of tea, or coffee or that energy drink everyone warns you about, and it'll be noon before we know it.

Maybelline Master Hi-Lite blush_shades

Maybelline Master Hi-Light Blush -- officially Maybelline New York Master Hi-Light by FaceStudio Hi-Lighting Blush ($11.99 each, drugstores in January) is the second installment of the FaceStudio category first hinted at by the new Master Glaze blush sticks I told you about here. Guess the EyeStudio franchise needed a friend. Is LipStudio coming soon? *grin* (Incidentally, I'm freaking obsessed by these Color Elixir lip shades.)

Maybelline Master Hi-Light blush_corals

Back to Maybelline Master Hi-Light Blush. Expect six shades; only four landed backstage near the end of World Mastercard Fashion Week. The previous photo is the Pink/Roses shade; this is Maybelline Master Hi-Light Blush in Coral.

Maybelline Master Hi-Light blush_Deep Bronze

Maybelline Master Hi-Light Blush in Deep Bronze. That soft shimmer in the powder will translate to a soft sheen on your skin for a glow boost to go with your sheer flush and your venti.

Maybelline Master Hi-Light blush_Plums Mauves

Maybelline Master Hi-Light Blush in Plum/Mauve. While a mosaic presentation always seems a little gimmicky, this one in particular does allow some flexibility of use. For instance, a small brush can pick up the lightest shades for use as highlight on the brow bones, tops of cheekbones, and inner corners of the eyes, too.

Maybelline Expertwear shadow new look new formula

Also launching in January is the new-look, new-formula Maybelline ExpertWear eye shadows. More substantial packaging will house silkier, smoother powder shadow textures. And while we're on the topic of Maybelline and textures, you might want to check out the new Maybelline ColorShow Vintage Leather nail polishes.

How's your Monday morning so far? (I splashed coffee on fellow GO-Train passengers this morning. *sigh*)
