My overall experience with Maybelline V- Face duo stick
Let me start my experience with packaging. This Maybelline duo stick is really very handy dandy and compact. I loved it a lot because of this reason. You don’t have to carry any separate palette for bronzing and highlighting. Both of them comes in a single cylindrical stick which is wrapped in an easy tear plastic cover. The duo stick comes in a twisted model with secured caps on both the ends. It has transparent, see-through cap at the top on both the side making it easier to look at the contour and highlighter inside. Packaging is very good and travel-friendly.
Now coming to the pigmentation, I am very happy that the shades were perfect for me. But still, I have a doubt regarding my contour. The shade matches but still I don’t know I feel like something is missing in it, may be because the contour shade gives a yellow undertone on my face. I liked it but not completely satisfied with contour part of the stick. But the highlighter is so damn satisfying. It has the right amount of shimmer in it. Once the high points are highlighted with Maybelline duo stick, you will get a natural looking glow on your face. Perfect highlighter for on the go.
The consistency of both bronzer and highlighter is creamy. They are very easy to blend also. One more best thing about the highlighter is that when you apply it they are creamy but once you start blending it, they turn powdery and gives you the shimmery glow without making the face greasy. Bronzer does not show up completely on the first stroke. It is build-able though! So you need to layer up according to your preference. But they can be blended easily. I blended them with my fingers. since they are creamy they glide very easily and do not leave any harsh lines on the face. Because they are in a stick form, the application is made easier. I felt like a Makeup Artist 😛 while using the stick over my face because you can contour and highlight like a pro with this stick. Very precise and easy to use and every beginner must have this in their makeup kit *I feel so, please don’t judge me* And yes they did not cause any kind of break outs on my face, which is really a positive point about this Maybelline duo stick. This stays for 4-5 hours if it is not set with powder.
