mac rebel

Saturday, October 05, 2013
My MAC lipstick collection has been one that I love to indulge in add to. Recently, my bolder lipstick collection has been growing, with the addition of Russian Red and now Rebel. I've had my eye on Rebel for what seems like forever, but it's now finally embedded into my collection and is holding the favourite spot at the moment! 



Let's start off by saying how different this looks in the bullet in comparison to on your lips! It's the perfect mid-toned plum which is extremely pigmented, and looks beautiful blotted down on paler skin. Because this lipstick's finish is Satin, it drys fairly matte but has a little bit of sheen. It's very creamy and doesn't drag across the lips. Although Satin finishes are known to be quite opaque, I find this colour very pigmented and bright!

As I said earlier, I usually blot this down on a piece of tissue paper because the full colour is just too bright for me. The colour lasts around 5-6 hours which I think is amazing, but it does dry fairy unevenly which is a pain in the bum! It also does stain the lips and is difficult to remove, but I personally prefer a lipstick that's difficult to get off instead of it running off within a few hours!

I have a strong feeling that Rebel will be this year's holy grail Autumnal lipstick. A strong, bold lip paired with neutral eyes and maybe a winged liner is already one of my favourite makeup looks! Although it's quite drying, you only have to pop on a bit of lip balm beforehand and you're good to go.

  4. I really like lipsticks that stain too. But it's a shame that it fades unevenly |:
    Anyway, it really is a gorgeous colour and it looks lovely on you! xx
