Let’s talk a little lipstick shall we?
MAC is definitely my go-to when it comes to finding a lipstick I know I’ll love. The two just go together like peanut butter and jelly.
MAC Rebel lipstick isn’t a new colour by any means, it’s been available for years now.
The wonderful thing about Rebel is that it isn’t a true plum, nor is it a true red. It sits right in the middle, so you can get that slightly sultry colour, without it looking too vampy.
It also has a fantastic quality in that it doesn’t play favourites to a certain skin tone or hair colour. It honestly looks great on just about everyone. As long as you have the confidence wearing this lipstick, it will look amazing on you. Swear.
Rebel is described as a “midtonal cream plum with a satin finish”. I love Mac’s satin lipstick finishes; they leave a slightly “glossy” look when applied to the lips.
There are a few things I adore about this lipstick: For one, it’s long wearing – meaning it will last hours on the lips, no touchups necessary. However, because of this, it’s very drying. You will want to make sure your lips are very moisturized before applying this shade.
This beautiful colour also happens to be very creamy and buildable. Being that it’s highly pigmented, your fingers are the perfect tool if you want to have a more sheer application for a lighter plum look. You also have the option of making it more dramatic of a look when you apply it straight from the tube.
When rocking a plum like this, makeup can really depend on what you’re in the mood for and the time of day. During the day, I’d say it’s always a safe option to keep the eyes on the neutral side (stay away from the shimmer), but at night, you’re pretty much free to play around how you please.
Like I said earlier though, confidence is a must when you are wearing a bold lip. As long as you are rocking that, you will look great in whatever you choose to wear.
*If you don’t want to pay the full price for Rebel, Wet N Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Sugar Plum Fairy is a pretty close dupe.
