MAC - Rebel lipstick.

Hi everyone, today I am going to review one of my favourite statement lipsticks ever, and that is from MAC in Rebel! I love this shade and wear it a lot, and now Autumn is coming up it is a perfect warm shade for those cold days.

This lipstick has a lovely raspberry pink/purple colour, it looks quite dark in the packaging but when you apply it comes out lighter on your lips. The lipstick itself is really easy to apply, and I like to apply it with a brush as to be honest I'm really messy when it comes to applying lipstick, so when it comes to a darker shade I find it easier and less messier to apply with a brush.

One coat of this lipstick gives you a nice opaque coverage, but I always like to blot and add either one or two more coats as it helps to make the lipstick last longer and also it builds up the colour. If you don't want a really dark colour this lipstick is buildable, and you could always apply a bit to the center of your lips and blend it out.

This lipstick has a satin finish, so it kind of has a matte effect with a slight sheen to it. Once applied I find this lipstick lasts ages and can sometimes last me over 6 hours and it doesn't really bleed out! Also when wearing this I don't really find that it leaves lipstick stains everywhere, though it can sometimes leave a slight transfer.

The only slight problem I have with this lipstick that it can be slightly drying and if you have dry lips, this lipstick will extenuate that. So before I apply this I would recommend using a lip scrub and a lip balm before hand to moisturise and soften your lips. 

This lipstick costs £15.50 so it's a bit on the pricey side, but I absolutely love it! And it's always nice to treat yourself every so often. You can buy it here:
