Quick Look: Maybelline ColorSensational Rebel Bloom Lipstick Swatches, Photos & Press Release

Maybelline Rebel Bloom LipstickForget shoes. You can never have too many nail polishes or lipsticks! 😉

Since it’s the Christmas season, I’ve been on a red roll, but any other time, I tend to experiment more with various shades.

Purple lipsticks make my heart race, but I also adore colours that are bold and provide a lot of contrast.

Did you know that Maybelline is coming out with eight new lipstick shades?

The Maybelline ColorSensational Rebel Bloom Lipstick Collection will launch officially in January 2015, so you can start the New Year with some new colours!

In today’s Quick Look post, I’ll show you swatches, photos, and the original press release of the Maybelline ColorSensational Rebel Bloom Lipstick Collection.

Stay tuned for my in-depth reviews on some of these!

Maybelline Face Studio Master Glaze & Master Hi-Light Press Release

Maybelline Face Studio Master Glaze & Hi-Light Press ReleaseAlthough you know me mostly as a nail junkie (hehe), I actually am quite fond of many beauty products.

One of my favourite things to wear is blush because it can completely wake up your entire complexion and make you look “more alive”.

Of course, it’s important to get enough rest, drink an adequate amount of water, and eat as healthy as you can, but blush is a fun way to introduce colour to your face and completely change your look, all while giving you that fresh-faced appearance.

So when PR sent me a press release about the Maybelline Face Studio Master Glaze and Maybelline Face Studio Master Hi-Light, I thought I’d share it with you.

If you’ve hit up the drugstore recently, you’ve probably seen these products already. (They were introduced in January.) But, in case you wanted more information or to see all the available shades, I thought this might interest you.

Master Glaze Coral Sheen looks like a great summery colour for the cheeks. (I’m big on coral in general, but especially when the weather warms up.)

And I like how the Master Hi-Light blushes have a woven appearance – really pretty!

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Shocking Coral Swatches, Review & Photos

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Shocking Coral Swatches, Review & PhotosBy now, I think pretty much all beauty lovers have heard of the Maybelline Vivids.

I purchased the Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Shocking Coral quite some time ago and have been wearing it when I want lip colour to brighten up my complexion.

In the past, I’ve been really into lip glosses, but lately I’ve been trying out more lipsticks.

It’s fun how by just changing your lip colour, you can completely transform your look. And the right bold lipstick can make you feel like a million bucks.

Shocking Coral was the first of the Maybelline Vivids that I tried, and I’m digging this for spring!

Haul of Shame: Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipsticks

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Shocking Coral, Fuchsia Flash, Brazen Berry, Vivid Rose, Hot PlumIf you follow me on Instagram, you already knew that weeks ago, I got my paws on a bunch of the new Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids!

It dawned on me that I never did a Haul of Shame post on here to give you a closer look at them. Plus after that Instagram photo, one of my readers (Frosso) helped me track down Brazen Berry, the purple shade that doesn’t seem to be available in Canada.

The first one I tried was Shocking Coral. I hope to review that one on here soon!

Maybelline Downtown Brown Swatches & Review

Maybelline-Downtown-Brown-Swatches-ReviewMaybelline Downtown Brown is part of the Color Show line, and this is a highly unique nail polish. In my stash of 600+ bottles, I don’t have anything like this brown-green duochrome.

I heard that it’s a bit similar to Misa Embroidered Emerald (which is an old and discontinued polish that I’ve been trying to get for literally years to no avail). So you can bet your bottom dollar that I was combing through the drugstores in hot pursuit of Downtown Brown.

After weeks of stalking Shoppers Drug Mart, they finally put out the display. I quickly snatched Downtown Brown from the display and then looked at the other colours more leisurely.

If you like this lacquer, don’t have an internal debate with yourself whether or not to get it. If you find it, get it. It’s a limited-edition shade, so once it’s gone, it may be gone forever unless they re-promote it in the future.

Maybelline the Falsies Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara Review, Swatches & the Colossal Comparison

** This post was written by Fiona. She no longer blogs for Swatch And Learn. However, Mary still continues to blog and will be happy to reply to your comment. **

Every woman and man should focus on the things that they love about themselves. Forget the bad, and concentrate on the good. I’m not just talking about appearance. I’ve been feeling down lately because I waste a lot of energy on the negative things. May is going to be the month that I attempt optimism. I hope you’ll join me!

Reason why I begin this review with this is: I’ve always disliked my eyelashes. But instead of telling you why I don’t like them, I’ll tell you what I like. 🙂 They’re not bushy, so they’re easy to manage. They’re easy to curl because they’re not overly thick.

So, is Maybelline the Falsies Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara a great match for my eyelashes? Continue reading


Best Drugstore Beauty Products & Finds

** This post was written by Fiona. She no longer blogs for Swatch And Learn. However, Mary still continues to blog and will be happy to reply to your comment. **

It’s gee-golly swell if you can afford to drop $30 on a lip gloss and $50 on a face primer. But really, a lot of us just don’t have the budget to do that – not even once in a while!

So when it comes to beauty products, I’ve learned not to discriminate. I’ve also learned that there are a lot of great drugstore products out there that do an awesome job, but for way less. You end up getting more makeup and products that you love for the money you’re willing to spend. And who doesn’t love that? 🙂

Today, I want to share with you the best drugstore beauty products & finds that I’ve come across. Let me know if you agree with any of these or if there are products you’d recommend! Continue reading
