Why hello there and happy Monday to you!
A couple weeks ago I was at Rite Aid and I saw a display of the new Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bloom Lipstick shades. Initially I thought these were mattes (I think I even said that in my Instagram post of them) then I looked them up online (before testing them) and realized no, they are not in fact mattes. There are ten pastel shades in all and they come with a see-through light pink cap.
Lilac Flush is a light lilac.
Power Peony is a medium blue-based pink.
Orchid Ecstasy is a bright orchid purple.
Hibiscus Pop is a pale peachy/pink.
All three of these except Orchid Ecstasy do very slightly settle into lip lines but from a normal distance away, you can’t see it (remember these photos are very blown up). I really love all four of these shades on my skin tone because they are all nice and cool. I especially love Lilac Flush because I don’t have too many lilac lip shades.
As far as texture, these have a light, somewhat creamy formula with some shine. They are moderately moisturizing, and decently pigmented.
I believe I paid around $6-7 for these at Rite Aid, so not too shabby!
What do you think of these shades? Are you into pastel lip colors for spring?
Note: Not cruelty free
