**It doesn't look this dark in person but this is how it kept coming out on camera and i didnt want to use the flash!

Mac's Rebel Lipstick was on my wishlist for quite some time - after seeing my friend Charlie wear it so much, and seeing how amazing it looked on her - i was literally pining over the lipstick. Beth very kindly sent me this lipstick as a part of my secret santa present and i was literally squealing with excitement when i saw it.

Rebel isn't like any shade i have in my collection; it's a gorgeous deep plum-purple colour and although it looks really dark in the bullet it's actually lighter when swatched or applied to the lips. This lipstick is a very bold colour to wear, I'm usually one to avoid bold lips but i have actually worn this out a few times and i just love it. It just gives that edgy vampy look to your make up, although i would recommend wearing a more natural eye with it to balance it out.

Like all Mac lipstick; it has brilliant pigmentation and that lovely vanillery scent. Rebel is a satin finish; it's not a glossy lipstick but it does have a shine to it. It feels really great on the lips and it's feels quite moisturising too, it glides on the lips quite smoothly but id definitely recommend taking your time with the application, with it being such a bold colour it's easy to highlight any mistakes and its not the easiest to remove. Id probably recommend using a lip liner for a much neater application - i don't currently have one to suit it but I'm on the look out for one so maybe when i find one I'll do a separate post on that?

I am actually wearing a lip balm underneath in this photo which is why it looks really glossy!

I've found that the lasting power of this lipstick is really good, I've worn it out for a meal and come home with it still visible, less bold than when first applied but still clear to see the shade and that i was wearing lipstick. I adore this lipstick and i can not thank Beth enough getting it me, and for bringing it into my life. I love Mac lipsticks in general and this is just such a stunning colour.

Whats your favourite bold purple shade?

  2. This is gorgeous, not at all what I expected from the first picture! I love MAC Diva although it's so dark that I only wear it when the occasion suits the shade. xo

    1. Yeah, thats more to do with my lighting that it came out so dark. It is a deep purple on the bullet but it comes out a lot lighter :)

    1. Aw thank you!
      Have you tried nude shades, but the ones with pink tones in so it doesnt just look like foundation - i imagine they'd work on pale lips?
