MAC Rebel lipstick review, swatch and FOTD

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.
