ZOUNDS! After years of being away from MAC lipsticks, lately I've been ordering some from Mac's website after much studying of their photos & descriptions (& completely forgetting to check 1st @ MUA!). A few of the colours have turned out to be absolutely, hands-down, remarkably beautiful -- indeed, even startlingly beautiful. And "Rebel" certainly is one: it just arrived today & is nothing short of RAVISHING! Against my ultra-white "moon-tan" skin & green eyes & dark-dark hair, this Nothing-Short-Of-Remarkable colour isn't like the photo shown here on this MUA page, however: on me it's far less hot pink-ish & much more of a rich yet soft magenta mixed both w/ berries & w/ the unique red/purple note only found in hothouse flowers & the jewel-like ruby beets of yore. (Indeed: note the MUA'er below who left Mac armed w/ "Rebel" AND -- yes indeedy -- "Beet" lipliner!). As soon as I'd put it on, gazing into the mirror my very 1st thought was that "REBEL" IS 100% ROMANTIC & 100% GLAMOROUS -- in fact, awesomely so! And every time I peek back into the looking-glass, those same words come right back to mind again instantly. PLUS, in addition to making one feel & look glamorous & romantic (as if that weren't enough!), here's 1 more of several additional payoffs in this Must-Have item -- & the following's just not encountered with the majority of lipsticks & glosses, even your "very nice" ones! To wit: "Rebel" is SO beautiful it makes you smile -- both inside & out -- just to be wearing it! Ah, rare indeed... and since we all know how true it is that when a woman feels beautiful she IS beautiful, all these qualities add up to make "Rebel" one POWERHOUSE lip colour for a mere $14.00 ! // Equally worthy of note is that (A) "Rebel" works PERFECTLY w/ many colours of clothing -- e.g., not just the obvious blacks & whites, but also those in the purple & green families, both of which can be hard to find the SUPERBLY-right lip colour for. (B) NOTE THAT IT'S A BEAUTIFUL MATCH WITH MAC's NEW "Love Thing" & "Gentle" mineralized blushes, as well as with Mac's "Summer Rose" Beauty Powder Blush from the even newer 'Rose Romance' collection.// -- And YES, wait -- there's MORE! E.g., you know all those shades of berry, magenta & fuschia that show up iEVERY season nowadays, in everything from T-shirts & cashmere sweaters to dresses, coats, & etc.? For years it's been a constant challenge to come up w/ the truly Perfect Lipstick that'll pair up with those glorious (& very particular) hues AND really stand up on its own, too -- until (yep!) "Rebel" !! // Last, & in fact perhaps Above All: "Rebel" is what my beloved Grandpapa would've called "a VERY French colour": i.e., a colour so very romantic, so very elegant & striking, and so "always Just Right" that one would expect to see it regularly on the confident lips of those stylish molls from Gaul, whether decked out in '40s glamour-togs & peep-toes or 21st C. punkish Lagenlook. For "Rebel" can take you anywhere, from Board Room to Blue Fish -- & really, everywhere in between! This is an all-season, all-hours colour: don't let anyone put you off the scent by pegging "Rebel" down to just Winter &/or Evening only. In fact it's so versatile & so unique I'm buying my back-up NOW! -- i.e., before Mac can possibly remove it from circulation as it seems to do w/ too many of its best and most singular lipsticks beloved by so many. "Rebel" is a lipstick to own several of, in fact, for -- as other MUA'ers point out -- I too have never-EVER found anything even CLOSE to this colour ANYWHERE else: not even amongst Guerlain's latest $45 lip colours!
