Mac Rebel Review

As promised in my last post I am here to give you a more in-depth review of Mac's Rebel lipstick. This was purchased on such a whim which is a bit ridiculous considering it cost £15.00 but I am so glad I got it. I had seen Rebel here and there on other blogs so I kind of knew what the shade was like but I shat myself when I opened the little bullet. It looks so dark! I started to think I had been duped by people taking flash photography but all was well when I tried it on. 

As you can see, Rebel is much lighter on the lip than in the tube. It is a pinky, purplish colour that looks good on nearly every skin tone. In fact I haven't seen this shade look bad on anybody. You can really build the colour as well to make it as light or dark as you'd like. This lippie also has real staying power. When I first wore it I was talking almost non-stop for about five hours before it started to wear off. It does tend to slip a bit more as I eat and drink but it is by far the best lipstick I have ever had in terms of not budging. This can get a bit tricky when you try to remove it as it really stains the lips, especially the outside, leaving that lovely (not) lip liner look. 

I will definitely be trying some more MAC lipsticks as I was so impressed with Rebel. Next on the list is Ruby Woo. Do you guys recommend any other colours?


  1. Ahh what a stunning colour! I only have a few mac lipsticks, I think Lovelorn is my favourite, I love the vanilla scent <3

    1. I read your review of Lovelorn last night and have popped it in my MAC wish list. Hadn't even noticed the vanilla smell! Now I can't stop smelling my lipstick - I look crazy! Emma.x
