I think I’m officially becoming the lipstick queen at work and channelling my inner Bake-Off Candice by wearing a different colour almost everyday. Well, another one has been added to the mix courtesy of the lovely Charlotte from A Fashion Oddity. Amazingly, I won a Twitter competition she ran for MAC Rebel which I have fallen in love with. It’s always been a cult colour within the beauty blogging world so it’s nice to get my hands on it.
On first impression, I thought that MAC Rebel would be much more of a red-purple than it actually is. It looks really dark in the packaging but once one your lips, it appears much more of a dark but vibrant pink. The finish isn’t usually something I’d go for, I love my matte lipsticks more than life itself! This is part of the satin range so it has a semi-sheen to it.
I don’t currently have a lip pencil for it so I’m still using my invisible lip liner alongside to stop any bleeding onto my skin. It lasts for about four or five hours without putting my Lipcote over the top. It’s good, but not as long lasting as the matte MAC lipsticks that I own. I’m thinking of either getting the Magenta lip pencil which is the closest match. Otherwise, I might have a little play with a darker one and make more of an ombré lip colour effect. What do you think?
As far as matching my skin tone, it’s not a bad match in my opinion. It’s not my absolute favourite but I do love it and it’s going to be great for upcoming festivities this Christmas. I’m really into cool toned lip colours at the moment and this is much warmer. It’s my first true plum colour lipstick though so it’s going to get a lot of love
