Black Orchid, Hydrangea Hype, Rose Riot new Maybelline Rebel Bloom Color Tattoos

*affiliate links, I bought this*

Maybelline’s new Rebel Bloom collection has five new LE Color Tattoos! The only display I’ve seen so far is the Lash Sensational display with the three color tattoos I have. I have heard there is a Walgreens exclusive display with two more Color Tattoos, and new Matte Master Glaze Blush sticks.

Black Orchid, Rose Riot, Hydrangea Hype Maybelline Color Tattoo

Black Orchid is my favorite of the bunch. It’s a metallic purple-mauve shade. The swatch looks more taupe, but it’s more purple on my eye. Rose Riot is a light metallic pink. Hydrangea Hype is a metallic light blue. The rose and hydrangea are a bit too metallic for me, and I like some serious sparkle on my lids. I swear the formula is thicker and more creamy. I’m hoping this means that the Color Tattoos won’t dry out as quickly?

In the picture above, I used the Black Orchid Color Tattoo all over the lid, and the purples from the Tarte Rainforest After Dark palette. The liner is Sephora Contour Eye Pencil in Love Affair. I purposely didn’t sharpen or edit this pic so you could see how well my undereye circles are covered. I have been testing out something new and I’m really pleased with the coverage! What’s on your beauty wish list this Spring?

Maybelline Master Hi-Light Blush Nude & Pink Rose


Maybelline has recently released a line of beautiful highlighting blushes that look more like a department store product, than drugstore! There are 4 shades of blush, and two bronzer shades. Each blush contains 4 shades and shimmer for a multi dimentional glow. The bronzer comes in two tones, also with 4 shades each.

Available shades:

  • Nude 10
  • Pink Rose 20
  • Coral 30
  • Mauve 40
  • Light Bronze 50
  • Deep Bronze 60

If you’re a fan of layering blush shades, like I am, I think you will really love the look the Master Hi-Light blushes give. I have Nude and Pink Rose swatches below. Pink Rose gives a really pretty healthy rose glow. Nude has a bit too much shimmer for my taste. Each of the Master Hi-Light blushes I’ve tried last approximately 8 hours. The blush is .31oz and retails for about $10.

I also have a swatch of this gorgeous new Maybelline polish, from their Brocade collection. Have you guys seen this collection?? It’s beautiful! This is an LE shade, called Gilded Rose. It’s a gorgeous Rose Gold with different sized glitter. The first coat was a bit of a pain and chunky, but the second coat seemed to even things out nicely!

Mini Review – Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara

Hi, and happy weekend!! It’s been a busy one here, painting my daughter’s room (though my 13 year old son did most of the work!) and enjoying the sun after a week of rain!!

I wanted to give a quickie review and share some pics of the newest Maybelline mascara. I was really excited about this double ended mascara, because it has a tiny brush for your lower lashes! I have only used it 3 times, but I really like it so far.

Maybelline masc1

The pros – Inexpensive, nice dark black, non clumping, non flaking, non irritating and it separates lashes nicely.

As for cons, I guess this could be one. If you are expecting volume like The original Falsies or Falsies Flared, you won’t get it. This is more of a lengthening mascara, with a natural look. I haven’t tried layering it with a volumizing mascara on top, but I will!

So far I am super happy with this new mascara, and love having upper and lower brushes in one! Oh, sorry I didn’t take pics. My lashes are really brittle and just not pretty right now. I started loosing my lashes about a year ago on the lower left eyelid and I have an ugly bald spot that doesn’t look very nice. :(

Have you tried this mascara yet? What’s your favorite mascara? I have a lot I like, and usually layer two kinds and switch back and forth. Right now I’m loving Buxom mascara and CoverGirl Clump Crusher in addition to this Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes.
