MAC // Rebel Lipstick Review

MAC | Rebel | £15.00 | Buy Here
Rebel is my absolute favourite lipstick ever, I literally can't go a few days without wearing it. I first saw this colour on Sammi from Beauty Crush and it was love at first sight ;) Normally I wouldn't be able to bring myself to spend £14 on a lipstick, but once I'd tried it on I knew I wouldn't be able to leave the store without it.. and so my MAC lipstick collection had begun!

It's a gorgeous deep pinky plum colour which goes on quite dark but fades to give a beautiful bright berry pink. It's so pigmented that it lasts on your lips for ages and it only take one swipe for me to get opaque colour, even though my lips are quite pigmented. I usually line my lips with a Natural Collection lip liner in Mulberry because it helps me to define the edges of my lips, which is pretty hard to do with the bullet unless you have a super steady hand! Since it's Satin finish it applies really smoothly and has a slight shimmer to it. It also smells like vanilla - this lipstick really can do no wrong!?

I tried to capture the colour as accurately as I could but honestly the swatches don't do Rebel much justice :(

  1. I have to admit I initially thought the colour in the tube + swatch was a bit scary, but it looks lovely on your skintone!

    I don't have a favourite lipstick! Lippies are too bold for me @_@

    1. It does look a little scary, it's definitely the brightest lipstick I own!! It's actually not that bad if you blot it down a bit :) Aaaw you should give lippies a chance.. start with neutral tones and then eventually work up to the crazy colours that's what I did ha ha ;)

    2. I actually buy my mom a lot of lipsticks, but sometimes I'll test them out, hehe. I usually blot a lot, to the point where it looks like it has stained my lips.

      But I think that's great advice!

  2. Oooh this looks like the lipstick of my dreams! It looks lovely on you :)
    My favourite lipstick is probably the first one I ever bought - Miss Sporty in the shade 'Seduction'!

  4. wow! the colour is beautiful! and so interesting to find out that it fades to a different shade, which is useful because remembering to top up can be a pain!
    thanks for the review ^_^ x

    1. yes it's soo useful because I always forget to top up my lippie or feel awkward doing it so it's great that it leaves a tint so my lips don't just look bare :) no problem, glad you liked it!
