Spring is just around the corner – yay!- and it’s time to break out the bright lipsticks to help get you in the spirit. Maybelline is right on trend with their new collection of spring inspired Colour Sensational Rebel Bloom lipsticks. The Rebel Bloom lipsticks offer a daring take on the classic pastel shades that are so popular at this time of year, they take the gorgeous colours we all know and love and have turned them up a notch to deliver pastels that are bright and playful without ever being washed out, dull or pale.
The Rebel Bloom lipsticks come in 8 vibrant floral inspired shades housed in amazing orchid cases that will look stunning on any vanity. The punchy shades are created with the help of Colour Bloom Technology that uses a white base to ensure the brightest, most saturated colour possible. Infused with honey nectar, the lipsticks have a lovely balmy texture that is slightly different than the rest of the Colour Sensational family.
The formula is gorgeously creamy and very comfortable. It is slightly moisturizing so it truly feels like a lip balm but with the punch of a lipstick in a super lightweight hybrid. It is soft and smooth and a little bit slippy – in a good way – so it applies like a dream and doesn’t cling or settle. The pigmentation is a little on the sheer side with a sheeny finish making the bold punch of colour a little bit more wearable. The colour can be built up in just a few swipes but never seems to go overboard and it lasts a good 4 hours before fading evenly into a natural sort of stain.
These are the perfect lipsticks to help you dip your toes into the world of springtime beauty and their formula makes them perfect for taking in your handbag for a punch of colour anytime of day. The Rebel Bloom lipsticks really are gorgeous in colour and formula and I think I may add a few more to my collection. They retail for $9.99 and are available online and at your local drugstore.
