MAC Rebel

This is my first, and only, MAC lipsitck :)  The whole time I was on the spending ban, I was craving one of these little babies.  I'd told myself I was going to get an everyday colour, a nude pink or something like that, but when I got to Selfridges I got brave and went for Rebel!  It's probably a bit silly as it's not a colour I'd wear that often, but oh my, it's pretty!

My Thoughts

First off lets talk about the colour.  It's pretty goddam awesome!  Now, you all know how much I love purple and I love wearing a red lip, well, this is the perfect combination of the two of them.  I'd class this as a red lipstick with a lot of blue in it, which makes it sit somewhere between red and purple without being truly either of them.

Next the texture.  Not drying in the slightest, but not super hydrating like a Revlon lip butter either, somewhere comfortably between the two.  I love that these aren't 'too' glossy either, they have a nice sheen to them :)  I don't know if you can see the difference in the photo's, but the bottom pic is painted on with a lip brush, and the one above it is from the bullet, so it's a bit darker and richer in colour.  My tip here, if you have any dry skin on your lips, apply it with a brush :)

Finally, longevity.  If you're not eating or drinking, this will last you a good 3-4 hours before needing to be reapplied.  If you're having lunch/dinner or having a drink while wearing it, you'll probably need to reapply after 1-2 hours.  It's what I'd expect out of any lipstick to be honest :)

All in all, I love this colour - I don't know whether it's the product or the colour that I love most, but either way, I really like it :)  I'm not in a rush to broaden my MAC collection seeing as I hardly ever wear lipstick, but I'm glad this one is in my paws :)

  1. Absolutely love this shade! Looks gorgeous against your skin tone. I've wanted to try this lipstick for ages but I just don't know if I could pull it off. I'm definitely still in the nude lipstick comfort zone!


  2. I like the colour of this x

  3. For my first MAC lipstick which I recently bought, I also wanted an everyday colour and went for Please Me, although I am a lover of brights and darks. Rebel is looking so stunning on you. I am tempted. xx
