MAC Rebel Lipstick Review

MAC Rebel lipstick review

Well, isn't this just the most perfect lipstick shade ever?! I'm one of those people who likes to change their makeup according to the time of year, in the Spring/Summer I love reds and peaches but in the Autumn/Winter I can afford to go darker, for a more vampy style of makeup. My first thought was Heroine but after some research and reading some MAC reviews I chose Rebel and I'm oh so glad I did! 

Like my Ruby Woo, Rebel is blue based so it makes your teeth look whiter. I am sometimes quite paranoid about my teeth so this helps a lot! Also, rebel is very pigmented but you can choose the colour depth by loading up the layers. A light application with a lip brush makes the lipstick look raspberry on the lips but the more you layer it on it can look like an entirely different colour. A heavy application can make the lipstick look like a deep purple which is absolutely perfect for a night out. it is so striking.

MAC has made this with a 'satin' finish, this is matte-ish with a bit of a sheen. Ruby Woo was my first matte lipstick and it was so matte that it actually juddered across my lips when I applied it! Rebel is far easier to apply in fact that it is smoother and once it has settled on my lips it actually looks matte. I always purchase matte as I find it stays on far far better than shimmer or gloss.

I do however have some reservations about Rebel... firstly, it is most definitely difficult to apply and it is not a lipstick that you can put on 5 minutes before rushing out the front door! I really need to take my time and use a brush and cotton bud to apply it perfectly. In saying that, once its on it doesn't budge all night. There is nothing worse than having a lipstick that needs to be re-applied every hour.

Secondly, no matter what cleanser, wipe or lotion I use, when it comes the time for me to take off my makeup it completely stains my lips, everytime! This doesn't bother me too much to be honest, it just shows how well it stays on, and thats what you look for in a lippy... right? haha!
