So as said in the Sneak Peek post last week, here is my in depth review and swatches of the new Maybelline Rebel Bouquet Lipsticks. There are 6 shades in this range, I believe (keeping Indian skin tones in mind) ranging from pinks to orange to reds. Today I have REB01 and REB02 up for you. Take a look :)
The lipsticks come in the standard Color Sensational packaging with a bright glossy red cap. The outer seal has a beautiful floral font, and I wished it was there on the cap too. Also, I wished the shades had some pretty names instead of numbers.
I have not faced any feathering/bleeding issues with these yet (I skip lip liner 99% of the times). But if you are someone who is usually prone to lipstick bleeding, then using a liner below might be a good choice, as these lispticks are quite creamy.
The formula does not feel heavy at all nor settles into fine lines.
REB01 - A bright (apple?) red shade with some fine golden shimmer which is visible only in the bullet. It will suit Indian skin tones quite well and is a perfect shade to wear when you do not want to do much on your face. You know how reds instantly perks up your look yeah?
REB02 - A bright pink (with a little touch of coral). I love this one more between the two.
It adds a nice pop of color to the face without looking over the top and works as a nice stain too :)
Price : 450 INR
I loved the texture and finish of these new Rebel lipsticks. They add the color without looking too heavy. REB02 has defintely made into my favourite list and I haven't been able to put this color down for 2 weeks now :D
Sure, the colors in this range aren't very unique and I am sure one can find dupes easily. So definitely check your stash once, before getting a lipstick from this collection. That being said, the sheer formula, finish and the colors are really good for spring-summer, so if you want to add some brights in your collection, give them a swatch at the counter...you just might end up liking them :)
