For my sister’s birthday, there are two rules we always follow; firstly, we all must acknowledge that this is her 23rd birthday for the %$%& year in a row; second, never get her makeup…with the exception of lipstick.  So naturally, I turned to Estee Lauder Rebellious Rose 420 Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($30 USD/3.5g) as the lone makeup item to gift to my older…I mean, wiser sister.  As soon as she opened the box her exact words were, “Ooh, I love the smell, taste and formula of this lipstick.”  Upon seeing how beautiful this color looked on her, I made it a point to purchase a tube of Rebellious Rose the following day for myself. After all, isn’t that what envious little sisters do?  Yup…some things never change.

Rebellious Rose is a beautiful rosy coral shade that would look spectacular with a variety of makeup looks. I have worn this delectable shade with the smokiest of eyes, never feeling overdone or out-of-place.  This is the perfect everyday, every occasion color.  My perfect “nude” if you will, without the corpse-like severity of many neutral shades.  As mentioned in previous posts, Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy lipsticks are hydrating, smooth and supple.  The satin formula imparts a slight sheen, which gives the lips a plump appearance.

When worn on its own, Rebellious Rose lasted 3½-4 hours.  However, when paired with It Cosmetics Blushing Nude YLBB Waterproof Lip Liner Stain (reviewed here), the color endured for 6 hours without any feathering–longer if I hadn’t removed what was left.  In all that time, my lips never felt dry, on the contrary, my lips were encapsulated with a veil of hydration that can only be described as, soothing.

One of my favorite ways to wear Rebellious Rose is paired with Dior Addict Fluid Stick in 975 Minuit (reviewed here).  In fact, this shade is so versatile, I have worn it with Dior Addict Fluid Sticks 869 Vie D’Enfer (reviewed here), 219 Whisper Beige, and 893 Trompe L’Oeil (reviewed here).  In every instance, the resulting hue was stunning.

For the complete ingredient list, please refer to this post here.  The ingredient list is so long, no website will dare post this record.

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you Estee Lauder Rebellious Rose 420 Pure Color Envy Lipstick is one of the most complimentary shade of lipsticks I have come across.  The rich color, creamy formula, fantastic color selection and unbelievably comfortable wear is enough of a reason to check-these-out.  If my cosmetically resistant sister loves these, then you know they are worth your time.  I have four and counting, how many do you plan on getting?  Be well, stay safe and be happy.
