Maybelline NY recently released its Spring 2015 collection
‘Rebel Boutique’. This Spring/Summer, it’s all about the pastels and these
pastels are ready to rebel! The range consists of :
1-The Color Sensational Rebel Bouquet Collection lipsticks
2-The Dream Satin Skin Liquid Foundation
3- The Dream Satin Skin Powder (Two Way Cake) and
4- The Color Show Go Graffiti Nail Colors
Today I’m here with two colorsensational lipstick shades out of the six. In USA, this collection is called as Rebel Bloom but in India the
collection is known as Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bouquet.
What company says…
Go rebel with bright and bold collection of lipsticks with this REBEL BOUQUET collection from the house of Maybelline. Rebel, has a new name, and a new colour, to flaunt.
In the mirror of my own experience
The packaging is the same normal Color Sensational silver square packaging with the red plastic cap. The name of the shade is mentioned at the base of the lipstick. This becomes a problem when one has too many Color Sensational lipsticks and almost all of them have red covers. They don’t have names and instead of names they are called by their codes that are a bit confusing to keep in mind. Personally I love Maybelline’s Color Sensational packaging. They are sturdy, secure and striking. However I was expecting some kind of special packaging for this collection, so a bit disappointed in that aspect.
Reb 01 is a deep red with maroonish undertone. It has slight silver shimmers in it but they are not visible. It’s quite a deep shade for summer but if you want to rebel against the conventional rules of beauty, you can wear it in this season. The other one Reb 02 is a beautiful bright pink color. It’ll be perfect for fair skin tones!
Texture and pigmentation– The texture of both lipsticks is so creamy, soft and moisturising. The pigmentation is great and a couple of swipes give good opaque coverage to your lips. They do transfer easily but you can manage this problem with no trouble.
Application & Effect
They glide on really smoothly on the lips. Due to the silky and creamy texture they don’t make your lips dry. No need to apply a lip balm before application. The formula feels very light weight that is great for summer. You get a glossy and semi matte effect on your lips. I really love their effects. You get a somewhat plumped up effect after applying them.
The only down side of these lipsticks is their average lasting power. They last for about 3-4 hours on my lips including meal and drinks. I don’t blame them much for this because they have glossy formula and the season is also a factor. You can increase the lasting power by using loose powder on your lips before application. The duration will increase in winters.
Lovely and travel friendly packaging
Smooth and creamy texture
Glossy semi matte finish
The shades are too bright.
Average staying power
Overall I love these lipsticks but the shades are not
unique. The colors that I got are really not pastel. One is a bright red and the other a bright pink. Both colors are beautiful, will look great on any skin tone but I don’t like deep shades in hot summer. Light shades give a cool and
natural effect in this season.Some of the Rebel Bloom lipsticks
that Maybelline launched in the US were so beautiful. I really want them here. In
terms of quality, these are magnificent. Glossy and light weight formula feels comfortable on the lips. Wish
they lasted for some more hours.
