New from Maybelline is the Color Sensational Rebel Bloom Lipstick, a new permanent range of lipsticks as part of Maybelline’s Spring 2015 release. Here is what Maybelline says about them:
Maybelline Color Sensational® Rebel Bloom lipstick. Now pastels rebel in 8 vivacious shades. A kicky bouquet of lip colors in pinks, reds and mauves. Honey nectar adds a sumptuous feel.
The lipsticks shades are gorgeous for Spring as it’s all about pastels, that ARE READY TO REBEL <3. This is a new formula for Maybelline, and the lipsticks are infused with Honey Nectar. Maybelline utilizes Color Bloom Technology which uses a white base for punched up, bright pastels.
There are actually 10 shades released in the US and only 8 shades in Canada. Canada misses out on #720 & #730.
Here are the shades that I purchased
Here are swatches in the same order as above:
I love these shades, as they are very wearable pastels. This formula is slightly more balmy, which in turn means that they do apply more sheer than the regular line of Color Sensational Lipsticks. If you are looking for strong pops of color from these lippies, you won’t get that, so you need to keep that in mind, or you’ll be disappointed. For example, as you probably noticed, the Orchid Ecstasy looks very purple, and intimidating, but applies quite sheer & gorgeous!
This new “balmy” formula does cause the lipsticks to be streaky when applied, requiring a few swipes on the lips to get a uniform application. Here are a few pictures of each shade on my lips:
They really are pretty shades and make me look forward to spring!
Have you tried any of them? What are your thoughts? Until next time, thanks for stopping by!
