Autumn Favourite: Dark lips

I wanted to share with you all one of my current beauty favourites, the dark lip. Now I know this has been all over the beauty world for quite some time already. Every autumn it returns even more so that the year before. The dark red/plum/berry lip is an autumn staple for us beauty girls, and well I think I have found my favourite among the many options out there. MAC lipstick in Rebel. It is a deep purple berry colour, one I would not have guessed to suit me, but to my pleasant surprise it worked well with my pale, freckled skin and strawberry blonde hair.

Here it is, the little beauty MAC Rebel 

Even though this is my current favourite lip product, it does not have the pride of being with me on-the-go. In my little makeup bag that I carry everywhere I have the Revlon Kissable Balm Stain in  Crushed.  It looks like this on the lips:

As you can see it is not too different from the MAC Rebel in colour, just a tad bit more sheer and it had teeny tiny sparkles (they don't appear in the pictures but they are there). The balm stain is also more of a balm - go figure when it is a balmstain, anyway that is why I love it for on-the-go as I usually just want to slap on something simple, and not worry too much about it being drying.
Another difference is the price, where the MAC lipstick is up at £14 and the Revlon Balm Stain is at £7.99. 

They are both grat products and very "in" for autumn, although I love this deep berry colour all year around :) For the record, the pictures show the colour slightly more red than it is in real life, where it is more on the berry/purple side -just so you know :)

Do you like the berry/purple coloured lip products? 
Do you have any you think I should check out?
