The ritual of adding new colors in my vanity has been part of my life since College days. Specially bright reds, which I always thought were a symbol of high fashion. With experiments and all kinds of makeup disasters, I found out that each human was created with a personal style (even in makeup) and its better not to follow any trends blindly. Going for colors that enhance your natural beauty is not just a safe bet but a wise decision.
Before I talk more about my lessons learnt and stuff lets jump into this just-new-in-market Rebel Bouquet lipstick collection by Maybelline –
Price : India – INR 450 , USA – $7.49
My Experience ?
When this collection first came out and I saw swatches of Rebel lipsticks, I knew I had to have atleast one of it. I missed out on the bright lipsticks from the PINK collection…so I knew I had to grab this one up.
The shade “REB04” is a lightly brightened coral pink color with warm undertones. This one has light sheen to it but looks completely matte after two coats. The shade comes under neon pink category, but the one that is easily wearable. It looks more vibrant in natural day-light and more coral in artifical light. REB04 instantly brightens up any dull look without any extra efforts. Below you can see the swatches, Trust ME it looks way too different in person and I can’t understand why it looks orange in pictures … :-(
Maybelline Rebel has the formula that is quite similar to most of the matte colors. Such pigment rich formulas aren’t best to apply and don’t glide on with as much ease. The texture isn’t very smooth but a little conditioning of lips changes the situation. I like wearing lip balm underneath even if it is not drying on my lips. Lip balm makes the application quite easy but may decrease the staying power.
As mentioned on Maybelline website The Rebel Bouquet lipsticks consist of rich colour pigments. REB04 has the best pigmentation ! One swipe gives you a natural pink lips and two swipes gives you vibrant bright coral pink lips. Two coats are enough for nearly full color coverage, although you might enjoy the one light coat for MLBB look.
On me the color lasted for four to five hours with any signs of dryness. This wore for six hours with a lip-liner and lipgloss on me. But on its own four hours is a pretty good staying power for a lipstick. It managed to pull through a couple sips of coffee.
Overall, Maybelline Rebel Bouquet REB04 brightens up your face and is a beautiful color that will work for various skin tones.
