MAC Rebel Lipstick

 Hey guys,

This lipstick is my most recent purchase from MAC. I originally talked myself out of getting it because I really didn't need another lipstick, but I've had a really shit week and I was feeling down so I thought "Why the hell not?" and picked it up.

I was actually eyeing Cyber and Media, but Cyber wasn't the exact colour I wanted although it was very pretty and Media just felt too brown and flat, it looked horrible on me. Rebel is a really complex shade, in the bullet it look like a ribena colour but with one swipe gives off a sexy berry stain.

Rebel is a satin finish, and as with all MAC satin lipsticks this wears well and still feels nice and smooth to put on. The lipstick is full coverage with a tiny bit of sheen, but no shimmer or sparkle. I really love the finish of Rebel.

I found this lipstick is really long wearing, lasting up to 4/5 with out a touch up! It also leaves a pretty stain on the lips which I find helps reduce the look of patchy lips when the lipstick does wear off.

This is just one light swipe of the lipstick

Personally I find it very pretty on me as it really brings the blue out in my eyes, but also very flattering on my mam who is tan, with a warm golden bronze skin colour. I could see this being a shade that any skintone can wear, it has enough purple to be edgy but enough red to remain flattering.

My mams lips - The colour had been on 3 hours when this was took.

The shade is very obvious and in your face, so only try this if that's the kinda thing you're looking for. I would highly recommend and will definitely repurchase. 

My next purchase from MAC will probably be Chatter Box or Cyber!

What's your favourite MAC lipstick?
