During the many months I was at the Children's Hospital with our little baby I received a beautiful parcel of some new product launches from Maybelline to coincide with spring and summer 2015. Unfortunately I was simply to distracted to post about these, until now. One of the new products were the Maybelline New York Color Sensational Rebel Bloom Lip Color..

Top to Bottom: 700, 705, 710, 715, 720, 725, 730, 735, 740, 745

These Color Sensational Rebel Bloom Lip Colors are promoted as a range of bright pastel colours that 'rebel', and I really like that they add an unusual pop of vibrant colour to the pastel shades otherwise seen in early spring.

The range is available in 10 shades, which include;

700 Barely Bloomed
705 Blushing Bud
710 Petal Pink
715 Hibiscus Pop
720 Power Peony
725 Lilac Flush
730 Orchid Ecstasy
735 Rose Rush
740 Coral Burst
745 Peach Poppy

L-R: 745, 740, 735, 730, 725, 720, 715, 710, 705, 700

Personally I am not a huge fan of too pale lipsticks, so again, I really like that these pastels are brighter than usual pastels. Yet still, my favourites of these 10 shades are without a doubt the darker shades 735 Rose Rush and 740 Coral Burst, along with an classical dusty rose shade, shade 705 Blushing Bud.

The formula has been honey nectar to give the lips a smooth look and add moisture to the lips.

And they do feel lovely and moisturising on the lips, although they could be more moisturising for my personal liking, but at least they are not, and do not feel drying on the lips which is really the main thing.

L-R: 745, 740, 735, 730, 725, 720, 715, 710, 705, 700

But what I really like about these are that they are very pigmented, just one swipe is enough for full colour intensity, and with a nice sheen.

They also have a fairly good wear on the lips, longest with 4+ hours for the darker shades such as shades 730 Orchid Ecstasy and 735 Rose Rush.

The lipsticks have a faint vanilla scent, which I am not a huge fan of as I find it a little odd and artificial, but as this is quite subtle I can certainly live with it.
They all come with a pinky-purple casing that almost matches shade 725 Lilac Flush. This gives them a bright and girly look too, as well as make them easy to spot in an over-crowded handbag. I also like that each has a colour-matched sticker at the end so if you have several shades you can easily find the one you are after. 

Overall this is a lovely range of lipsticks, and I dare say that there is something in this range to suit every taste and occasion, whether you like something pale and neutral, and varying shades of pink, fuchsia, purple and red shades.

The Maybelline New York Color Sensational Rebel Bloom Lip Color have an RRP of $16.95 each, and are available from Priceline, select pharmacies and supermarkets.
