Maybelline Carnation Cabernet & Tangy Tulip Rebel Bloom Lipstick Review

Maybelline Carnation Cabernet and Tangy Tulip Rebel Bloom Lipsticks

Maybelline sure is working overtime to make sure we’re prepared for spring! First, they gave us a handful (or two) of new, permanent Rebel Bloom lipsticks and now we’re getting a few more limited edition shades too. I don’t know about you but all of these spring collections have me on the edge of my seat. Hurry up already spring so I can be all bright and pastel!

There’s a total of 4 new limited edition shades in the new spring Rebel Bloom collection but I only picked up two, Tangy Tulip and Carnation Cabernet. Tangy Tulip is a bright warm mandarin orange with slight red undertones. Carnation Cabernet is a vibrant magenta with cool undertones.

I spotted them at my local Walgreens but they’re also available at CVS too along with a handful of other new and limited edition goodies.

The Rebel Bloom lipsticks are still relatively new to the scene but I’ve been enjoying them quite a bit and highly recommend trying one. I’m usually not a fan of sheer lipsticks since I have pigmented lips but the Rebel Bloom formula actually impressed me!

Both Tangy Tulip and Carnation Cabernet are creamy, lightweight and easy to apply with semi-sheer coverage and a soft, juicy sheen. They applied smoothly and evenly with an emollient texture that melts into the lips for a smooth, flawless finish. Neither shade settled into my lip lines and Carnation Cabernet didn’t emphasize flakes at all while Tangy Tulip was slightly less forgiving. I experienced some light bleeding with both shades but a light application and lip liner helps lock the color in place pretty well.

Tangy Tulip and Carnation Cabernet wore very comfortably for around 4-5 hours before fading into a stain. Both shades left my lips feeling soft and seemed to fade well (no cracks or flakes). If you happen to come across the new Maybelline spring display I totally recommend checking out Tangy Tulip and Carnation Cabernet!
