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.

  1. Beautiful colour and beautifully reviewed. I had been lusting after this shade since it was launched but it has always been out of stock at the store near my house. I finally found a dupe in Inglot.

    Btw, I have used the picture of the lipstick from your blog to compare it with the Inglot one and I have kept the watermark intact as well as given you credit. Hope you don’t mind me using the picture.

    • Hello Dollie,
      I cannot wait to see and read your comparison. I’m glad I could help you..I love it when beauty bloggers can help one another and give credit to each other for ideas and photos. Thank you for stopping by and commenting darling.

  2. Gorgeous on you! This is the type of shade I wore for so long and I guess I should consider getting one but these days I’m more into more neutral colors. 🙂

    • Hello Icaria,
      Thank you. I wish I could wear the neutral colors…so many beautiful looks can be achieved with a neutral lip. Sadly, I look like a corpse whenever I try to wear them.

  3. EL lipsticks are my favorite. I agree with your review of Rebellious Rose 420 Pure Color Envy Lipstick. This is a very complimentary shade of lipstick, and I think a lot of people would really enjoy this product, even those that are “cosmetically resistant” (I love this term you have coined!)!

    • Hello CeCe,
      I so glad you like El Lipsticks as much as I do. I don’t know what else to call someone who absolutely refuses to wear any sort of face makeup. My sister can afford to have that attitude, she has beautiful skin.

  4. LOL @ your sister’s age! I myself stay at 27 for many years and someday will age to 28!!!

    That color is a lovely color, much better than the nudes even though I did love nude lipstick, I find rose the perfect pick-me-up-can’t-go-wrong color! I don’t have any EL lipsticks but when I did, I do remember them having that sophisticated touch, something other brands don’t have. I might have to buy one now since I have become sophisticated and somewhat mature!

    The color looks great on you! And I bet it looks great on your sister too!

    • Hello Olivia,
      I am 22 and you’re 27 forever..now let’s go out and celebrate. Maybe we will even get carded, after all we don’t look a day past 20..especially if we are wearing our Rebellious Rose 🙂 Thank you sweet Olivia for putting a smile on my face after a very long day.
