MAC Rebel / Barry M 160 'Black Cherry'
Rebel is a gorgeous purple based / fuchsia toned lipstick. This is the kind of lipstick I love - so many lipsticks that look purple in the bullet just don't deliver and end up being more of a bright pink. I'm a massive fan of nudes and pinks, but when I reach for something dark I want more than just a basic red, and so this colour is perfect for me. Rebel is a satin finish (which so far has proved to be my favourite! I've heard the mattes are very drying) It has a semi-matte finish with a slight sheen to it, which is forgiving on even chapped lips. As far as I can tell it doesn't accentuate dry areas and comes off as such a lovely finish.
The berry-tone of this lipstick means it looks amazing with both pale and tanned skin (not to mention green or blue eyes!)
I was looking through some other lipsticks for comparison, and actually discovered that the Barry M 160 lipstick (which I bought about a month ago) is very very similar but with less of a purple undertone - appearing more of a deep hot pink on the lips. But for a cheaper alternative I'd really recommend it - it even has the same satin-like finish (although it's slightly more drying). Admittedly, I do love Rebel much more and it is better quality; but Barry M makes some amazing cheap alternatives to the MAC lipsticks so it's worth checking out.
