Maybelline Rebel Bloom Color Tattoo Eyeshadows

For spring, there are five new, limited edition shades of Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadows ($6.99 for 0.14 oz. each). They’ve just popped up locally for me, and as far as I know, you’ll probably have to track them down in-store if any of them appeal to you (usually, limited edition collections from drugstore brands aren’t available online).

Maybelline Rebellious Raspberry, Citrus Evolution, Passionate Peony Color Elixirs

Maybelline Rebellious Raspberry (110) Color Elixir Lip Color ($8.99 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a vibrant, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had rich, nearly opaque color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly. The texture is thicker, mostly non-sticky, and was nicely hydrating while worn. On me, it wore well for four and a half hours. It does have a strong perfume-y scent and soap-like taste. Revlon HD Strawberry Topaz (535) (P, $8.99) is warmer. Dior Magique (479) (P, $35.00) is lighter. MAC Drawn in Chic (LE, $15.00) is lighter, warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty Paint It (202) (P, $28.00) is lighter, warmer. Giorgio Armani #519 (P, $29.00) is darker, cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Maybelline Tangy Tulip, Bubblegum Bloom, Carnation Cabernet Color Sensational Lip Colors

Maybelline Tangy Tulip (960) Color Sensational Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium orange-red with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a lightly creamy consistency that was thin but glided on without tugging. On me, it lasted for three and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. The formula has a sweet, fruity scent that’s not too strong. MAC Ravishingly Rich (P, $23.00) is more matte. NARS Lana (P, $32.00) is darker. NARS Geraldine (P, $32.00) is similar. Givenchy Corail Signature (317) (P, $36.00) is lighter. Lipstick Queen Jungle Queen (P, $22.00) is redder. Illamasqua Soaked (P, $26.00) is brighter. NARS Timanfaya (P, $25.00) is more matte. MAC Sweet Grenadine (LE, $17.00) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty All the Way (122) (P, $30.00) is darker. Milani Sweet Nectar (P, $5.49) is more matte, brighter. MAC Morange (P, $16.00) is darker.
