For a long, long time I was after the Mac Rebel lipstick. I'd seen it on many youtubers and bloggers and always thought the colour was so gorgeous and versatile, so obviously when I received it for my birthday I was literally the happiest girl in the world! Now it's been a few weeks, and I've been wearing this pretty much every other day so I am obviously very, very ready to review this for you!
Mac Rebel is described as being a mid-tonal plum although I do find it to be more of a dark pinky-purple. In the bullet the colour can be quite overwhelming as it seems so dark but once on the lips the colour is a lot lighter and in my opinion it is a colour that would look good on pretty much every skin tone (especially in this Autumn/Winter months). It is a Satin finish, which I really because it moisturises your lips really well.
I found Rebel to also be a long-lasting colour, it doesn't feather or run and I've worn this for a full day of University without it coming off - so that's five or six hours of staying power right there! When out for longer I rarely have to re-apply (maybe once or twice on a long night out) but do just to keep the lipstick colour looking fresh. It's amazingly pigmented especially after a few extra swipes and it also smells really nice! Is that strange to say about a lipstick? I'm sat here smelling it right now and it smells good enough to eat. It smells quite a lot like vanilla which I really like and think is such a nice touch to a lovely lipstick.
Overall I would say that Mac Rebel has quickly become one of my favourite lipsticks (although I could say that about all of my Mac lipsticks). It's such a gorgeous colour and it works so well with so many outfits and looks. I'll definitely be wearing this a lot during these dark and gloomy Autumn months!
What do you think? What is your favourite Mac lipstick?
