Mac Lipstick in Rebel

**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 Blogger 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 a lot lighter when swatched or applied to the lips. It's a very bold colour to wear and I'm usually one to avoid bold lips but i've actually been wearing this lipstick out quite a lot recently and i just love it - there's something about a bold lip like this that just really gives you a confidence boost. I'm obsessed with this plummy/purple shade, it just gives that edgy vampy look to your make up and i love it.

Like most Mac Lipsticks, Rebel is really pigmented and has that lovely signature vanilla scent. It's a satin finish so it has a subtle shine to it. It feels really pleasant to wear on the lips and quite moisturising too, it glides on the lips easily but id definitely recommend taking your time with the application because with it being such a bold colour, it's easy to highlight any mistakes and its not the easiest to remove so I'd probably recommend using a lip liner for a neater and more precise application.

The lasting power of this lipstick is really good, I've worn it out all night, even worn it for a meal and come home with it still visible, it does fade slightly so it's less bold than when first applied but still obvious that i was wearing lipstick. I can't thank Beth enough getting it me and for bringing it into my life - i just love it. I'm really loving Mac lipsticks in general, they're such good quality and a really luxury to have in my collection.

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?
