MAC Lipstick in Rebel


  MAC Rebel Lipstick was my first "dark" lipstick and the shade that made me crave even darker colours.  I bought this on a whim in late 2011 and it took a lot of courage for me to eventually wear it out and when I did it was love.

  Rebel is a dark berry shade with a hint of brightness that makes it very easy to wear.  It is a "Satin" finish meaning it is neither matte nor glossy, just the perfect inbetween.  The formula of this lipstick is creamy and when it fades it leaves a nice stain behind.

  Although Rebel can be described as bold I sometimes want it to be even darker so I pair it with MAC Lip Pencil in Vino underneath, usually for when I go out at night.  It does not however need a lip liner as it doesn't bleed or smudge all over your face.  Overall this is my favourite MAC lipstick I've tried both in terms of colour and formula.

Availability: MAC Cosmetics $18
