Maybelline Spring 2013 Color Goes Electric: Coral Burst blush and Striking Peach lipgloss REVIEW and swatches

I love this time of the year when companies come out with collections that correspond to a fashion show. The ideas are always so fresh and new and I love seeing all the possibilities in make up. A few days ago, I saw Maybelline's Color Goes Electric Spring 2013 collection and picked up a few things immediately. I knew they wouldn't be there for long so I had to grab it when I get the chance. I grabbed two nail polishes (Ruby Rhinestones and Cocktail Dress reviewed here) and a blush and lipgloss. I will review the Coral Burst blush and Striking Peach Color Sensational lipgloss here.

Maybelline Coral Burst blush, 2.5g, $6.99

Coral Burst is an EXTREMELY bright orange coral shade and I LOVE it. On first look in the pan it is neon orange and so intimidating. I swatched it but it still seemed just as pigmented. As I sheered it out, I can see a beautiful coral with a golden sheen. You don't need much of this product so any sheen it may carry will not look overwhelming on your cheeks. If anything, I would say this has a satin finish. 

Maybelline Striking Peach lipgloss, .17 fl oz, $7.49

Striking Peach is a glossy peach shade with small hints of glitter. On your lips, it doesn't look glittery. In fact, all it did was give my lips a plumped and hydrated look. I feel the texture a little bit. It isn't a rough sand paper feeling when I rub my lips together, but I do feel like there is something there. It doesn't bother me one bit. I like how the color is sheer but enough to bring a hint of color to my pigmented lips. The scent smells a juicy bubblegum.

Overall, both products are loved by me. Coral Burst is the most pigmented and bright orange blush I have ever owned, but it is so beautiful when blended out. Striking peach is easily dupeable, but I do like the texture and look it provides my lips. The blush lasted 8 hours on my cheeks and the lipgloss lasted about 2 hours.

Have you seen these items at your store? If so, are you picking up any of these limited edition pieces?
