REVIEW | MAC REBEL

It's that time of year again. Yes. My favourite season - Winter! I actually couldn't wait to wrap up in thick scarves, over-sized jumpers and big black boots... just me then? I know I' a bit late with posting up a review on this particular shade since there are already a tonne of reviews and swatches on MAC Rebel, but i just couldn't help it! An all-time favorite of mine is MAC's REBEL Lipstick. Isn't it just the perfect autumnal/winter color? Just wait till you put it on! I have been through three tubes of this beautiful berry shade, I hate to admit it, but I do actually believe I have obsession with this color. Since the colder season is still upon us, this would be perfect for Valentines Day: Date night? Something casual and laid back with Bae? A night out to the cinema with your girls? MAC Rebel's your guy!


 It is a satin finish with a semi-matte formula. It glides very well and is very moisturizing leaving your lips well-hydrated. It has a nice creamy consistency which has a slight sheen giving your lips a juicy, plump with buildable coverage that isn't drying to the lips at all. As a mother-on-the-go, the last thing on my mind is heading to the toilets in Westfields just to top up on a lipstick - ain't nobody got time for that. It does tend to bleed on the corners of my mouth, so wearing a lip liner or applying the product with a lip brush is advisable. The longevity, for me, is up to 4-5 hours. If a bold lip isn't your cuppa tea, just wipe off the lipstick and ta-da! An instant berry lip stain. I've been using the word "berry" a lot in this post haven't I...


Rebel is part of the permanent line at MAC, described as a mid tonal cream plum - quite a popular shade around the beauty world, If you're only starting out with bolder, darker lip shades, I'd say try this one since the shade isn't too bold compared to other vampy shades. A great shade for all complexions, the shade can look different depending on your skin tone - on lighter complexions, the shade comes out more grape/berry and can look more on the berry-red side for deeper skin tones. Although it is a deep shade, it isn't Gothic at all! In fact, it is the perfect shade to transition from Summer to Autumn/Winter.

  I find that my MAC "Satin" and "Amplified" finish products melt more easily than the rest.
NOTE TO SELF: Make sure you don't leave your lipsticks on the windowsill.
