Mac Rebel Lipstick


I can't tell you how long this has been on my wishlist for, and thanks to a little Christmas money I decided this was the perfect time to purchase. When I got to the Mac counter a quick swatch on my hand completely sold it to me.

Rebel by Mac is a gorgeous vampy plum colour, which really adds a bit of edge to an everyday look, without going a bit too 'Goth' (god I haven't used that work in years but it felt appropriate!). I used to be so scared of wearing a dark lipstick but after lots of swatching and experimenting I actually think these dark burgundy colours suit my skin tone. In fact, this lipstick is one of those that will look perfect on the majority of skintones.

This lipstick has a satin finish which I really like, it applies easily, and has great staying power, I like the fact it isn't completely matte, the satin sheen finishes it off beautifully. It's very pigmented so I tend to apply it quite gently and build on it. Rebel has quickly become my go to lipstick for a night out and will be my first choice up right up until summer.

This is only my second Mac lipstick and it has definitely left me wanting more what colours do you recommend? I'd like a cute everyday pink colour.

Whats your favourite Mac lipstick?

  7. Rebel has been one of my wanted mac lipsticks for a long time. Although during the past months, i have invested in RubyWoo instead. I think that this shade is lovely to wear on evenings out or even during the day if you apply it with a lighthand. I've never owned a MAC satin finish lipstick so it would be interesting to try it out as i always prefer the Lustre finishes because they are easier to apply and wear :)

    Thank you for sharing, the lipstick looks so pretty on you! Have a lovely day <3

  12. I have heard so much about Rebel and i think it is such a gorgeous shade. I have nothing like it in my collection and yet i don't know what is holding me back from purchasing it. My cousins swear by it and wear it regularly for various occassions and it always look beautiful. Think i need to take a peek at it again at my local MAC counter :D
