My love for magazines and my love for makeup started in my early teenage years. Cosmopolitan was one of the first magazines I used to love reading, along with some other popular Greek magazines. (I bet my Greek readers still remember ”Katerina” and ”Super Katerina”). Through these publications, I discovered the colorful world of makeup also, and I was so excited to get the latest issues as many of them used to offer free makeup products.
One of the most loved product I got from the magazines, was a green lipstick which turned to red upon application. Honestly, I can’t recall at the moment the brand’s name but I clearly remember how much I loved and used this lipstick and how desperate I felt when it was all over and finished. Recently, I came across the Real Rebel Luxury Lip Care and as sweet memories flood my mind I fell in love with this lipstick even before I tried it.
The Real Rebel Luxury Lip Care it’s a kinda magic and revolutionary product. Its unique formulation reacts with your own body chemistry (responds to your lips pH) to enhance and emphasize your natural lip color. The color range that delivers, varies from light pink to bright pink and from light red to red or dark red. The formula contains Bees Wax, Shea Butter, Vitamin E which moisture and hydrates lips and Jojoba Oil which penetrate the skins surface keeping the lips soft and renewed. It’s important to notice also that it doesn’t contain any fragrance!
The lip care balm comes in a beautiful packaging (metallic) which is just like a lipstick and doesn’t remind any other cheap lip balm. The lid is engraved with a pretty flower design and seals completely. You will never find it accidentally opened in your beauty case.
First things first, I loved the luxury, well designed and cute engraved packaging. Some might say that the content counts but for me, the packing is essential as well. The lip balm is creamy soft, slides on the lips and it’s lightweight. It doesn’t stick at all and lasts for hours, but as it’s really soft like a lip balm, in case of eating or drinking something I might have to re-apply it. That’s not a bad thing though, cause every time I use it I protect and hydrate my lips.
The color which delivers to my lips is a bright pinkish red, perfect for an everyday look or for an evening one. If I want to add definition and an intense color on my lips I use a lip liner. My tip, which I have shared with you already, is to wear the lipstick first (or any lip balm first) and then to create the shape following the natural lines of your lips. The lip balm isn’t greasy and doesn’t feather around my lips whether I have used a lip liner or not.
In overall, I feel excited and lucky to have found this luxury lip balm which brings so many memories in my mind. I really love the fact that I can have two products in one, a lip balm which hydrates and nourishes my lips and a lipstick which offers to me natural, healthy and good-looking colored lips.
