MAC Rebel





Hello Lovelies!

Following on from my previous post where I told you all the major news about my bold lips revelation and I mentioned that there was a second lip product that I have been reaching for a lot lately. Yes I eventually gave in and bought Rebel. If you live in Ireland you'll know that Brown Thomas is now online and you can buy make up brands like MAC, Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier on there. Now if like me you live in the middle of no-where and getting bigger brands is a bit difficult this is brilliant news! So of course I had to celebrate the fact that these brands were more readily available and purchase a lipstick. Rebel had been on my wish list for so long. In Autumn/Winter time this is pretty much the only lipstick you hear about so I had always been tempted but the dark colour put me off because I was afraid I would buy it and just end up not wearing it. 

But I just decided to go for it and force myself to go outside my comfort zone and I literally convinced myself that this would be my new everyday lip colour. Looking back I was a little over enthusiastic, I definitely would not wear this everyday but I have been wearing this once or twice a week lately! It is such a wearable dark berry red colour, I feel that this kind of shade would look stunning on so many different skin tones. It literally glides onto the lips and leaves them feeling nice and moisturised. The thing I loved most about this was that it fades evenly. I hate when a lipstick fades or wears off in patches and if you don't have the product you're wearing on hand you could be left with very questionable looking lips! Even when it's worn down a bit I still really like the look it gives. So you really could wear this two ways. You could pat it in to your lips lightly to give your lips a tint of colour or you could really build it up and go for the full on bold lip.  

 Overall I am so happy I finally added this to my collection and I am so glad I ended up loving it as much as I do! I'm predicting that this may appear in a monthly favourites soon!

Have you tried Rebel? What other MAC lipstick or eyeshadow recommendations do you have? I love discovering new colours, it's definitely a problem!
