Maybelline recently sent me an amazing care package filled to the brim with their newest releases. My eyes were immediately drawn to the new Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bloom Lipstick collection.
I mean – Hello, can you blame me???!!
There are 10 pretty pastel colours in this collection and I’m sure you will find at least one that will tickle your fancy!
I will say that I wasn’t the biggest fan of the plastic lilac casing, but…
…it’s what’s inside that counts!
The swatches from top to bottom are :-
700 Barely Bloomed
705 Blushing Bud
710 Petal Pink
715 Hibiscus Pop
720 Power Peony
725 Lilac Flush
730 Orchid Ecstasy
735 Rose Rush
740 Coral Burst
745 Peach Poppy
Out of the 10 colours, I can safely say that 7-8 of them will be in my regular rotation of lippies. I’m not a fan of cool-toned pinks/lilacs because I can never carry off those colours thanks to my yellow-toned skin.
As for performance, they tick all the right boxes – glides on easily, doesn’t have a noticeable scent, doesn’t dry out lips and most importantly, looks good on my lips! Yeahhhh!!!
Please forgive the poor quality selfies of me wearing the Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bloom Lipsticks. Did not have time to photograph high quality lip swatches because of Masterchef Finale / work / sick baby girl / all the excuses.
From left to right, I’m wearing :
705 Blushing Bud – Poor lighting in photo means that it looks darker than it really is, but it’s a great everyday mauvey pink shade
730 Orchid Fantasy – I wore this to Aldi, haha. I love this shade even though I look slightly washed out wearing it but that’s because I only have brows and BB cream on and nothing else to balance out the purple. A touch of blush would have been good. Anyway, I didn’t reapply my lippy the entire day but it faded into a nice berry stain.
740 Coral Burst – A lovely pop of colour. Some corals are hard to pull off but because this errs more fuchsia coral than orange coral, it gets the thumbs up from me. Wore to this the beauty launch of the Real Techniques Bold Metals – of which you can get a glimpse of on my Periscope @Xyling (watch my vids before it gets deleted after 24 hours!!)
