Rebel Red

Huda Beauty Rebel Red Cheeky Tint Cream Blush Stick ($25.50 for 0.17 oz.) is a brighter, darker coral-red with moderate, warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had very faint shimmer, which seemed to give it a bit of luminosity despite the formula drying down to a more transfer-resistant finish after about 15 seconds from application.

It had medium, buildable color payoff that was easy to work with whether I wanted to sheer it out or build it up, but it played best with bare skin due to the initial creaminess. When I used a fluffy brush and a light hand, I could make it work without disturbing base products underneath. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading visibly on me.

Formula Overview

$25.50/0.17 oz. - $150.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to to be "water-, transfer-, and sweat-proof" that have a "juicy pop of color" and is "buildable." They were creamy with moderate slip, enough to easily skate across the skin if applied directly from the tube. I preferred to use a fingertip to pick up product or a fluffy, synthetic brush, rather than apply directly, but it was totally workable that way. I had more precision with my preferred application methods, though.

The blush applied better over bare skin than foundation as it was slippery enough to be more prone to moving base products around. Once blended out, the product set to something more transfer-resistant but still managed slight luminosity and did not seem fully matte at a glance. The coverage was semi-sheer to medium and buildable, depending on applicator, method, and it wasn't the type of formula that immediately sheered out when blended, so for those who find other cream blushes to be too sheer, this might be a good option.

They wore eight hours on me, which is not atypical, so while some claims made it seem particularly long-wearing, it was consistent with what I tend to experience with cream/liquid blushes. They did not have any scent that I noticed.

Hi Christine – any chance you’ll review the shade Proud Pink before the Sephora sale ends?? Info regarding how noticeable the gold shimmer is have been mixed and if it resembles something like Nars Orgasm, where the gold shimmer is quite obvious, I’m going to skip. I love the cool pink shade but gold shimmer gives my skin a sickly cast.

I still haven’t found one of these shades that I really like enough to purchase. I think that since I picked up the Bridgerton trio of blush and highlighter from PMGL and then with my Chanel highlighter, I am going to have enough to play with.
