Rebel!


A girl can never have too many lipsticks and with my latest edition I’m channeling my dark side. Given our obsession with Twilight it’s no surprise that we’re vamping it up with bruised and bitten lips.  We’re talking ox blood, deep purples, even black... no dark is too dark apparently!  
Whilst I don’t imagine rocking rouge noir, I did fancy something berrylicious. Rebel is a gorgeous berry shade. It looks very purple in the bullet, almost mulberry but once applied is more of a pinky/purple/plum...  It’s hard to describe and having researched it on the internet first, I found it tends to look different on different lips! A lot of people, myself included, struggle with dark lipsticks because they have the tendency to wash you out, especially those with red undertones. Because Rebel has a high pink content, I actually find it warms my face up a little. It was also easy to pair up with blush and eye colour.



This is a satin finish lipstick from MAC, meaning it’s not creamy or matte, it’s somewhere in the middle. I’d describe Rebel as a semi-matte, long-wear, full pigment lipstick. I wouldn't say it's overly drying and when you apply it, it feels soft and silky, but it does eventually set and dry a little. You might want some lipbalm handy. It’s not as dry as matte but not as creamy as amplified creme or cremesheen, which I tend to go for.  The best thing about this lippy, it lasts for hours! I tried it on at the MAC counter, went shopping for 4 hours, ate a wrap, drank some juice and it was still intact!


Rebel is a great pick if you want to channel the vampy trend without looking like a goth. If you dare to go darker, check out Revlon Black Cherry and 17 New Black.

  1. I always stop and admire this lipstick at the MAC counter, but I assumed it would look ridiculous on me. You, however, make it look so wearable, I might actually try it on next time. This looks so nice on you!

  3. Oh interesting that it looks quite pinky on you!! I was planning to get Rebel using Back2MAC! But I like this on you! You're right - dark colours tend to wash us out, but this looks great on you!

    And so good to hear that it's semi-matte. Matte lipsticks are way too drying, and glossy dark lips just don't look right. So it's perfect to have an in-between formula.

    Thanks for sharing! xx
