I've been after Mac's 'Rebel' lipstick for a while and as soon as autumn rolled around I decided I simply couldn't face the incoming cold and gloomy seasons without it.
It does look a rather scary shade of deep purple but don't let it put you off because on the lips it has a slightly pinky berry tone to it whilst still having a vampy purple edge to it.
It is a Satin finish which although it isn't completely matte it still stays put all day whilst feeling much smoother on the lips than a matte lipstick. I even ate with this on and it wore away only slightly in the centre of my lips to a pinker more raspberry tone, but I was so impressed with how well this lipstick stayed put.
At £15 this isn't the cheapest of lipsticks but I did come across a colour dupe for it which is an MUA lipstick in Shade 2 which is really similar in colour (not sure about the finish though). So if you're struggling about whether to be brave and purchase Rebel or not why not try the MUA lipstick first to test it out, it's only £1 so you can't really go wrong!
