I had never been fond of very bright lipsticks but the New Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bouquet Lipsticks range totally changed my mind. They are the best bright pastel lipsticks for Indian skin tones. Rebel Bouquet is a perfect name for this range as they really remind me of gorgeous bright flowers. I got the shades REB04 & REB05* that look almost same in the tubes but come out completely different on lips and hand. They are priced at Rs 450 and you can buy online HERE.

Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bouquet Lipstick comes in a silver tube with reddish orange pull off lid. The packaging is same as that of Color Sensational lipstick range. The lid of the lipstick snaps shut satisfactorily and won’t create a mess in the bag. There is a sticker stuck at the base of the lipstick that mentions shade number. The color of the sticker depicts the shade so it would be easy to identify a particular shade in case you hoard many from this range. Overall the packaging is quite lightweight and looks chic. It is quite sturdy too as I had dropped them twice while taking them out of the bag but fortunately it did not break :). The scent of the lipstick is very mild and hardly noticeable.

REB04 is warm neon pink with coral undertones whereas REB05 is a warm orange color. Both the shades instantly brighten up my face even when I do not wear any makeup. I truly adore both the shades and they would look flattering on all Indian skin tones. You can always mix the shades to get a shade of your choice. The formula of the lipsticks is very soft, smooth and creamy. They are applied easily but you have to be careful while applying these shades as they are quite bright and any smudge or mistake really shows up and makes you look awful. It can be applied using a lip brush or directly from the bullet. With a firm grip on lipstick, the lipstick glides easily across my lips without bleeding, smudging or feathering but I always make sure to apply a lip liner for a more defined look. They are very moisturizing and I don’t feel the need to apply a lip balm underneath them. But if you have extremely dry lips, make sure you exfoliate your lips well and apply a good lip balm. They do not feel heavy or greasy on my lips. My lips feel soft, smooth and moisturized. The pigmentation is superb and gives true deep color in a single coat. You can always layer it up for a more dramatic effect. The lipsticks provide full coverage and are good bet for those who have heavy pigmented lips. The finish of the lipstick is smooth, even, creamy and semi matte. The shades look slightly glossy when applied but settle into semi matte finish. They do not contain shimmers or glitters.

The staying power is pretty awesome. It stays put on my lips for a good 5-6 hours with eating and drinking. After that it starts fading leaving behind a beautiful tint. It does not transfer easily on mugs, cups or glasses. The lipstick is easily removed with a lip remover without staining or drying out the lips.

PROS:
•    Soft and creamy formula due to the presence of honey nectar in it.
•    Feel light on lips.
•    Superb pigmentation.
•    Great staying power.
•    Settle into semi matte finish.
•    Great for heavy pigmented lips.
•    Instantly brightens up face.
•    Reasonably priced.
•    Do not transfer easily.

CONS:
•    If you have dry lips then make sure you exfoliate them and apply a good lip balm else these lipsticks would look flaky on lips.
•    The shades have no names. Maybelline kindly hire me to name your lipsticks :D.

Overall Thoughts:
Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bouquet Lipsticks are the best bright lipsticks I have tried recently. They do not look over the top and instantly brightens up the face. This range includes pink, orange and red shades so if you love bright yet wearable pastel lipsticks then I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND these shades to you.

Rating: 4.8/5

My Tips:
•    If you have very dry lips, exfoliate and apply a good lip balm prior to lipstick application.
•    Apply with a lip brush to get more defined and even look.
•    You can mix the shades to get the color of your choice.

Have you tried this range? Do you love bright lipsticks?

Stay pretty!
