If you're interested in trying a lipstick in the purple family, give Karmela's Rebel a shot. I honestly had some doubts about straying from my red-brown/spicy comfort zone, but after trying it out, I was pleasantly surprised! The smokey lavender is a fun shade to use this time of year to shake up the winter doldrums, or sport for Valentine's Day. It also provides a nice accent to a pale pink or light blue top. In a nutshell- a little extra pop, but not over the top...with, of course, Karmela's signature magnetic snap-on cap!
