You may need to sit down for this one ladies. Maybelline is launching three new shades of its Master Chrome metallic highlighters this summer, which look very similar to the popular Trophy Wife by Rihanna's makeup line, Fenty Beauty. And breathe. Fenty's much-loved highlighters retail for £26 at Harvey Nichols, whereas high street favourite wilko.com is selling the Maybelline version for a bargain £6.98 right now. The exciting news on Maybelline's upcoming Master Chrome shades was announced on the brand's Twitter page. They posted: "We’re working on more shades of #masterchrome and here’s a sneak peek of one of 3 new shades coming this summer."

So far Maybelline has revealed two out of three of the new shades: a glamorous shimmery gold and a bang on-trend rose gold. Love love love! Predictably, fans of the beauty brand were ecstatic at the news, with one commenting: "Ooh yass!! I'm so excited." Another wrote: "OMG that is sooo gorgeous! Can't wait to buy it!" In response to the rose gold shade, one follower said: "Now THIS is the rose gold shade I was hoping for – I do love the rose gold you produced though!"
While Maybelline fans were over the moon at the new launches, some expressed concern at the absence of lighter shades in the collection. One follower wrote: "Praying there's a lighter shade!" Another said: "We need lighter shades." Fear not, the brand tweeted back confirming that they will indeed be releasing a lighter tone soon. Now, which month will this makeup marvel happen exactly? We'll keep you posted.
