Maybelline New York’s Baby Lips range has been a big favorite of mine and I’ve tried every variant that has been launched till date. My favorite though will have to be 2015’s launch, Baby Lips Spiced Up, available in three flavors – Berry Sherbet, Tropical Punch and Spicy Cinnamon. And what’s great is that this range has been tailor made for Indian consumers only!
Every time friends who stay in other cities come to Kolkata, I know I’ll have to accompany them to various places in the city to let them savor Kolkata’s brilliant street food. North Kolkata’s ‘Tele Bhaja‘ , Park Street’s famous rolls, Vivekananda Park’s ‘Phuchka‘, Maidan’s ‘Jhalmuri‘ etc etc. We cover them all. I so wish my friends were here now because I would have taken them to K19, the all day dining restaurant at Park Plaza, Ballygunge where the Kolkata Street Food Festival is currently on. Would have saved me so much travel 😀
This Spring/Summer, it’s all about the pastels and these pastels are ready to rebel! Maybelline’s Summer 2015 collection is called Rebel Bouquet and consists of :
- The Color Sensational Rebel Bouquet Collection lipsticks
- The Dream Satin Skin Liquid Foundation
- The Dream Satin Skin Powder (Two Way Cake) and
- The Color Show Go Graffiti Nail Colors
From this collection, I’ve got a couple of lipsticks and three Go Graffiti nail colors. In this post, I’ll talk about the lipsticks REB 01, a beautiful red with very fine shimmer and REB 02, a bright pink.
- 6 new shades
- Flirty, edgy and fresh floral shades
- Pure pastel bright pigments
- Gives crisp and rick color
- Has color bloom technology with a honey nectar formula
- Texture of creamy and soft lips
- Price: Rs.450
Packaging – The normal Color Sensational square packaging with the red plastic cap and again, with no names. Why Maybelline??
Texture – Creamy, soft and goes on really smooth on the lips. They are well pigmented and a couple of swipes give good opaque coverage. Because of the creamy texture, they do transfer but they also do not dry out lips.
Finish – Glossy finish that give lips a plumped up look.
Staying Power – About 2-3 hours on me
Overall Thoughts – The colors that I have are really not pastel. One is a bright red and the other a bright pink. Both colors are beautiful, will look great on any skin tone and perfect for summer but there is nothing different about them. I would have liked to see some variety in the lipstick shades of this collection. Some of the Rebel Bloom lipsticks that Maybelline launched in the US were so pretty. In terms of quality, these are wonderful. Creamy and feels comfortable on the lips. Since I’m going through a major “I love gloss” phase right now, I’m loving the shiny finish. Wish they lasted for some more hours.
Out of the two shades I have, my favorite is REB 02 and I can see myself wearing it very often this summer. Which one did you like? And, did you get anything from the Maybelline Rebel Bouquet collection? Do share in the comments below.

As much as I love perfumes, in this intense heat and humidity, I much prefer light body mists and my current favorite is the Forest Essentials Rose & Cardamom Body Mist. Forest Essentials is now in Kolkata and I’ve become obsessed with their products! Have picked up an ubtan, a night cream, shower butter and a lip balm that I’m currently testing and will review soon. Today, let me talk about the Rose & Cardamom Body Mist.
