MAC Rebel lipstick:
I bought this lipstick last year, I was roaming around at Shoppers Stop GIP Noida and saw the SA at MAC wearing a very beautiful berry shade lipstick. I was not sure whether this shade would suit me but I thought to give it a try and I am really happy that I went outside of my comfort zone to try this shade. Let’s jump to the review now ladies.
MRP: Rs. 1450
Packaging: Typical black packaging with the name of the color written at bottom.
Color: Rebel is a deep plum shade with berry tones and has a subtle shine. It would suit mostly all the skin tones. It is not a matte lipstick but settles into semi matte finish after an hour.
Texture/formula: Texture is very creamy and lipstick glides smoothly on lips. Formula is not too drying but my lips felt dry after 4-5 hours of wear time. So I advise to moisturise the lips beforehand.
Scent: It has the signature vanilla scent which fades away soon.
Pigmentation: This lipstick is highly pigmented. One swipe will provide the full coverage. Few people have experienced uneven finish but not me, as a remedy a berry shade lip liner can be used to provide even coverage.
Longevity: The lipstick stayed on me for 7-8 hours with slight fading around the corners and in middle of the lips.
Staining: Yes it stains the lips heavily and you need to remove it with a oil based makeup remover.
- Nice deep berry shade.
- Creamy texture
- Highly pigmented
- Satin finish which settles into matte finish after some time.
- Long wearing
- Difficult to remove, stains the lips heavily.
My verdict: I love it. This is my go to shade in winters as I prefer wearing dark shades in winters. Considering the positive points it have it will not disappoint you.
