I'm really not much of a lipstick girl, but over the weekend I was in Mac and made the decision to break out of my comfort zone. I had no idea of what shade I should get, but I knew I wanted something for Fall. Luckily one of the makeup artist there knew exactly what I was looking for. She handed me a shade called "Rebel", I put it on and thought to myself - I look like a 5 year-old who got their hands on lipstick; great, just the look I was going for.
I asked the makeup artist why it didn't look clean and crisp, she told me the key to wearing lipstick is all about wearing lip liner. As any great sales person would do, she picked out the perfect lip liner to go with the lipstick and put it on for me. After I saw the difference I knew I needed both. So I walked out with lip liner in the color Magenta and my new favorite shade of lipstick - Rebel. My lips lasted all the way into the evening even after a few glasses of wine.

If you are thinking about buying the lipstick, the liner is well worth the extra $15.
BTW, Rebel is the perfect lip color to pair with Essie's Bahama Mama.
