Beauty Review: MAC Rebel Lipstick

I have wanted a purple lipstick for so long, I was really feeling the winter trend and the 90s feel a purple lipstick gave. So when I received Rebel from Father Christmas (aka my fiance), I was over the moon. My MAC make up obsession started last year and is growing slowly but surely. All I seem to look at online is MAC products and reviews written by other beauty bloggers. The formulas in MAC lipsticks are incredible and my lips really
appreciate them – which is why these lipsticks are fast becoming my favourite. If you’ve read my blog for a while you’ll know about my
love/hate relationship with lipsticks. My lips seem to reject the
formula of lipsticks so I hardly wore them. No one wants patchy
and curdled lipstick on their lips. I feel I’ve hit a revolution with
discovering MAC lipsticks and I wish I’d known how good they were years

My new favourite obsession is a satin lipstick called ‘Rebel’. I am being really adventurous with my MAC purchases and trying to go for something I wouldn’t normally buy. I always play it quite safe with my makeup, however once I tested darker shades on my lips I was sold and thought “be brave and go bold!”. In my opinion this lipstick looks darker than it actually is. On the stick it looks a dark, deep purple but on my lips it is a lighter shade
that is more pink toned then purple (see photo below). 
I actually really like the colour it
produces but I was a tad disappointed not to have a deep purple, as
that’s what I originally wanted. However, I now have a purple toned pink
shade that I really love. 
This is the
first time a colour has turned out differently to what I thought on a MAC lipstick, so I don’t see this being a frequent problem with buying them. I look forward to wearing this colour more in the Summer
as it’s not an ideal winter colour for me.

    I love this shade but like you was surprised at how much lighter and pinker it was on my lips.

    Me too! That's why I thought I'd take a photo of the lipstick next to my lips to show how different is it! It's a nice colour but wasn't the colour i wanted the lipstick for! X
