MAC Lipstick || Rebel & Swatches




Hey Beauties...
I was lucky enough this year to receive two MAC lipstick for Christmas, Lustering and Rebel (Check out my Lustering Review) So today I decided I would share with you my thoughts on MAC Rebel and show you what it looks like on the lips.

MAC Rebel Lipstick is a Satin finish, which I is a semi-matte, it doesn't have a whole load of shine to it, however it isn't flat and dull either, perfect for those that want to try a matte lipstick but have dryer lips and find mattes tricky to wear. This has to be one of my favourite finishes from MAC Lipsticks as they last for a very long time.


I was a bit on the fence about getting Rebel, as a lot of people have raved about it and I (for some reason) like to go for more 'unheard of' colours rather then the popular ones, however I swatched this colour at my local MAC counter and fell in-love! Its the perfect plum lip for winter and is exactly the colour I have been hunting for, for a good two years or so. 

The lasting power on this lipstick is incredible! I applied this in the morning, ate, drank, licked my lips, and the colour was still visible before I went to bed at 10pm, I even found it had slightly stained my lips as after I removed it with a wipe, I still had some colour the next morning. It has very quickly become a favourite of mine, and I can definitely see what the hype really is all about with this shade!

Have you tried this shade before? What are your thoughts on Satin Finishes?
I'd Love to hear what you think.

  1. I think it looks really pretty on you! This is a shade that keeps popping up time and time again but I've never tried it. I'd like to give it a go but I'm not sure how often I'd use it so I always go for something else. I'll get it eventually! Xox
